Intrepid doesn’t offer an outstanding itinerary for their Oman portion. Realize you will be doing the exact same itinerary that any traveler must be also doing so you will be competing with hundreds of cruise ship patrons . The Oman portion offers no special Intrepid gems that is usually offered that you feel like you experienced an something one of a kind. Never ate Omani food . No welcome, farewell dinner on Oman portion. While the Jordan portion was excellent with personal Intrepid experiences that Intrepid is known to offer.
