Now in our 21st year, literally thousands of travellers have experienced the unique Ancient Kingdoms Holiday experience through the Middle East and Gulf States.  Each year we seek new frontiers to share with you and then weave these into a personal adventure ready for you to experience firsthand.  Over these years we have built personal friendships with our network of local representatives, so that you are welcomed as a friend. Ancient Kingdoms Holidays has the right connections, the right ability to design a holiday that works within your dreams and your budget, enabling you to touch this rich culture and history. Our dream is that you’ll return with a life time experience that will stay with you forever.


Oman has long prospered on the trade routes which converged in Muscat.  Richly endowed with UNESCO listed forts and castles, Oman is also blessed with a stunning coastline.  Marvel at the contrasts this ancient civilisation has to offer and appreciate Oman’s traditional hospitality.

Ancient Kingdoms Holidays are proud to offer a variety of holiday options:






4 day Muscat Ministay

A chance to discover Muscat’s traditional architecture, Grand Mosque, Portuguese fort, fine museums and the old fortified harbour.  You have the option of extending your Ministay to Salalah or Turtle Beach to experience more of Oman.


Muscat Sightseeing

Four options we recommend are
1) the 2 hour Sundowner Dhow cruise;
2) full day Desert Fort trip (forts, castles and crafts);
3) a 4x4 tour to the Wahiba Sands;
4) a full day 4x4 Coastal delight trip.


8 Day Mystical Oman tour

An ideal itinerary to discover the best Oman has to offer in comfort, accompanied by your personal driver/guide which offers maximum flexibility.  This tour combines a blend of spectacular landscapes, rich culture, heritage and the unique opportunity to witness marine turtles nesting.


4 day Salalah tour

Visit the Royal Farm and the Al Mamura Palace enroute to Taqah Castle. Then on to Samhuram Port and the remains of Queen of Sheba’s Palace.  Visit Job’s Tomb and Mughsail beach. Learn about local bird life, the frankincense trade and Arabian horses.


8 day Dubai Hatta Fort & Oman

During your 4 days in Dubai experience the historic and modern sides of this city contrasting with the desert at Hatta Fort.  In Oman visit Muscat’s museums, Grand Mosque, souk and Royal Palace. Free time in each country to explore at your own pace.


7 day Oman self drive

A flexible holiday for the independent traveller.  We have suggested 2 nights in Muscat, 1 night in Sur, 1 night in the Al Raha Bedouin camp, and 2 nights in Nizwa.  A well paced itinerary visiting the major historical and scenic sites of Oman.
