Lying along the beautiful and unspoilt southern seaboard of Arabia with its ancient fortified villages and fertile palm groves, is the legendary home of Sinbad the Sailor and source of precious frankincense since biblical times.
Oman is a stunning country both on land and underwater. Beyond the colourful waters of Muscat lies a vast country to explore. From its beaches to its high plateaus, there are so many forts, isolated villages, pottery souks, wadis, sand dunes and hidden date plantations to discover that you probably won’t have time to see them all in one trip!
Oman is not only a place of outstanding beauty; it is also a safe and fairly free country. There are no major concerns walking around on your own, even when visiting the souks. There are no restrictions for female visitors regarding dress code, but it is definitely best to avoid very short skirts and overly generous décolleté!
The only restrictions apply when visiting mosques – in particular the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque – where both men and women must wear a long-sleeved top and trousers (or skirt) to enter. Women will be asked to cover their head with a scarf.
There are a number of high-quality holiday resorts and dive centres – please read on for some information on them, and contact us for further information on rates and to book.

Sitting on the banks of the Bosphorus is spectacular Istanbul, divided by the Golden Horn. A colourful and historic city that is great for city breaks and can easily entertain longer stays.
Magical Cappadocia’s landscape was formed around 30 million years ago when volcanic activity left the region blanketed with ash. The ash solidified into what is known as ‘volcanic tuff’, this is an easily eroded material and as it wore away over many years, it left the distinctive rock formations seen in Cappadocia today.
Gulet Cruises in Turkey are a fabulous experience in a beautiful region of the world. Turkey’s coastline is the longest in the Mediterranean. Taking an authentic Gulet Cruise is the perfect way to explore it, meandering at a slow pace and stopping off en route. This is a great way to explore the region’s many hidden treasures and sleepy backwaters, enjoying perfect serenity at sea and making friends along the way. We offer a range of carefully selected itineraries which visit the most unspoilt parts of the region, allowing you to experience the local culture and explore ancient ruins.
