This is a great introduction to Muscat, the itinerary of this tour gives you a good insight to parts of Omani culture and also Muscat. We were the only ones on the tour and our guide Munil was friendly and well informed, he gave us a great insight to Oman and we especially enjoyed the Grand Mosque, a stunningly beautiful building. We got there early and as we were leaving the tourist buses were arriving. The drive to the Old Town was interesting and we enjoyed the walk through the Souk where there is a very good jewellery shop where you can get Oman necklaces made.
We booked this tour online and had difficulty confirming a pickup time as the office number was not answered and we ended up calling Orient Tours in Dubai who gave us a mobile number of Raju. I would recommend the mobile number is on their website and also included in the Viator contacts for this tour.
It was really, really good. The sights in Muscat are quite dispersed but the bus journey takes you directly to the best bits. The walking tour around the old town was excellent and the general recorded guide was informative and very interesting. Loved it, will consider going on other Big Bus tours in other parts of the region. Just one point, it's worth booking a hotel near the drop-off points as there is only bus per hour.
