We chose this tour as a shore excursion , when we finally got cleared by customs to get off our ship our tour guide was waiting for us with a sign that had my name on it with a smile on his face, our guide was a local and had a very good English vocabulary with a solid knowledge of Mucsat and its history, he loves his city and it shows we had a great time he brought us to the highlight of the city always asking if we were satisfied ....i recommend this tour especially if you are on a cruise it was really easy to find our guide at the main exit of the port and we were returned to the same location a nice no hassle excursion!

Our guide Nasser was exceptional - knowledgeable, friendly, and very accommodating. The itinerary was perfect. He even treated us to falafel and soft drinks.

Our guide, Nasser, did a wonderful job of explaining the history of Oman both political and historical. He was proud of his country and eager to show us the highlights of Muscat. We really enjoyed exploring this area with him.

Our guide/driver was wonderful, very friendly and shared a lot about his own life with us. The tour was a good over view of the city, the fish market and the mosque were especially memorable.

It was a great tour! Our tour guide was waiting promptly in the port when we disembarked. He was aware of our time limitations so he brought us to the mosque right away because it closes at 11am for visitors. He did not want us to miss this opportunity to enter the mosque. The rest of the highlights tour was done leisurely. We ended our tour in the souk as everything closes at 2pm. It gave us a sneak peek of merchandise we wanted to come back for as the pier was walking distance to the souk.

Our tour guide was a very quiet and respectful man. However, he did not even introduce his name to us. He did not even talk or gave us a brief history of the city. We had to ask him what building we were passing and significance of it. We felt that he was more of a driver than a tour guide. In this aspect, our group felt that there could be room for improvement in this area. A little public relations and rapport with the visitors in his country would have created a more fun and enjoyable experience for us.

We enjoyed our tour of Muscat and our guide was very knowledgeable and good company. We were aware that our tour was starting too late to fit in entry to the Grand Mosque but were able to view and walk round the outside.
There was however a negative side to our experience because our meeting instructions very clearly stated we should meet our guide outside the main port gate. Having got there, with some difficulty, he was nowhere to be seen and it took 30 minutes to discover that he was waiting inside the port. As a consequence we also missed visiting the fish market which closed before we met the guide.
