Boasting a traditional past (think Arabian Knights and frankincense) and a highly educated future, for visitors, this offers a rare chance to engage with the Arab world without the distorting lens of excessive wealth.
Relatively still undiscovered and on the rise, Oman is surely on the ‘must see’ list of places to go. Join us on our adventure into the sands for the photography trip of a lifetime.

After eight wonderful years, it’s time for me to hang up my truffle boots and bid you all a fond Frui farewell. As many of you know, I’m a keen writer and from here on in, I’ll be focusing on my books and other creative projects.
But don’t worry, you’re still in the very capable hands of fellow founder James Lockett (certified knight, no less) and his highly skilled team of trusty tutors. And what an exciting time this is for Frui. We’re about to launch a couple of incredible new destinations for 2017 and add a few extra flourishes to some existing favourites.
Frui is a very special travel company. It’s unlike any other. A big part of this is down to our tutors past and present. Thank you, guys, for all your hard work over the years and for always looking after guests with such kindness, professionalism and charisma.
And, of course, to all you Frusters. Thank you for your loyalty, enthusiasm and good humour. We could not have grown Frui to what it is today without your support. I’d love to keep in touch, so please do visit my personal website to drop me an email.
Since James and I started Frui in 2008, I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world, form lifelong friendships with clients and colleagues and learn so, so much. For this, I am forever grateful. I wish you all the very best of luck for the future.
Keep on creating!
