Half day tour in Muscat


We start our tour at Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, a magnificent architectural complex. Its furnishings are the grandest you will find anywhere in the region. The construction is outstanding and is a must see on anyone's agenda.
Our next point of Interest is Royal Opera House Muscat, one of the beautiful theaters in the world.
We then drive to Al Bustan street with it's gorgeous trees and continue to Muttrah, the unique part of old Muscat. Here we proceed on foot, walking around the Al Alam Palace with its fairy-tail towers in gold and blue; and pass by ancient Mirani and Jelali forts.
We then have a short visit to Fish market and stop at Muttrah Souk houses a wide selection of gold, silver, spices, pashminas, hubbly-bubbly pipes, old guns, fabrics and bric-a-brac. And it will be our last stop. The labyrinth of alleyways are many; most of the souk would remain undiscovered after hours of walking.

A Recent Review of this tour

Valentina was warm and accommodating. She took us to all the sites outlined in our tour description plus added in a few stops to give us a flavor of Oman and to meet some Omani people. Once she recognized an area of interest on our part, she suggested ways for us to maximize the experience. She is upbeat and very personable and just made the day interesting and comfortable. Our 4 hour tour extended to 6 hours in order for her to fit in everything she wanted to show us.
