TONY WALSH 📖author 🌞 توني والش - explore Oman and Arabia with me

Between 1986-2016 I lived in Arabia – working in Oman, Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E.

For much of that time I was self-employed, running my own retail business which then evolved into a ‘portfolio’ of businesses, from operating a Disney retail franchise through running an inbound tour operator to contracting for small construction projects with the U.S.A.F. Associated with the tour business I authored magazine articles for international publications, a coffee-table book financed by Oman’s Ministry of Tourism and in-house booklets for the Ministry of Tourism.

Both leading tours and alone I have explored Arabia, especially  Oman, and hope you will enjoy the distillation of this knowledge in my books.
