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

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

Over that time I managed department stores in Saudi Arabia and opened my own retail business in Oman. was contracted by the U.S.A.F. to deliver small construction projects at their two Oman bases and set up an inbound tour operator –  read more here .

I have been fortunate to write magazine articles and authored booklets for Oman’s Ministry of Tourism and a Coffee Table Book kindly funded by them.

Since 2016, I’ve continued to write about Arabia and lead occasional tours.

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