Full description
Begin your tour by driving towards the north to visit the city of Thumrait - a small town in southern Oman on the main road between Dhofar and Muscat. Your next stop will be at Duka Valley, home to many old Frankincense trees. Afterwards, head to the UNESCO city of Ubar - the so-called lost city, allegedly destroyed by the southern Arabian sands. Then, enjoy a spectacular day out in the desert of Rub' al Khali (the Empty Quarter Desert), the largest continuous sand desert in the world. Interact with Bedouins and have dinner in the desert whilst you learn all about the Bedouin lifestyle.

Solid experience. Much of what I wanted. Just lacked that little bit of magic to make it extra special. Expensive by North American standards - and for the level of service I received
