A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful day with Valentina. She met us from the ship on time and took us straight to the Grand Mosque ahead of the crowds. Valentina was most informative and knowledgeable and also very friendly and considerate. She was flexible in her approach and made sure that we saw everything we wanted to see and made our day memorable. It was a very hot day but she kept us supplied with wet wipes and chilled water! We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a private tour of Muscat.
