Oman & Saudi Arabia



Oman has been a crossroads of commerce for millennia, with ideas flowing from the Red Sea to the Persian Gulf, and across the Indian Ocean. 3rd Millennium BCE Akkadian traders came here from Mesopotamia for copper, Petra’s Nabateans for incense. Greek and Roman merchants rode the monsoon winds that blew them to India and back, and Arab seafarers used it as a base for trade to East Africa. Later, it would be Omani sailors piloting the Portuguese and Dutch explorers expanding the then known world. Over recent years Saudi Arabia has opened up to the world. The second part of this tour explores its incredible history from the ancient petroglyphs at Al-‘Ula to the Nabatean Rock cut tombs at Hegra and the historic Roshan in Jeddah. Alongside its history, we will be exploring Saudi’s spectacular desert environments.
