Great tour by our guide Abdullah, covering a lot of the interesting sites in Muscat. We started with a drive from our hotel to Old Muscat, first stop, the AlAlam Palace, spectacularly situated nestled between the mountains. We drove there via Wadi al Kabir passing by the Al Bustan Palace Hotel, built for the GCC conference in 1985, and the first real luxury hotel in Oman. After a stop on the way, we arrived at Muttrah Souk, I always think it is more atmospheric after dark, with the call to prayer echoing, the various scents of food, spices and incense wafting from the various shops. You can find just about anything you want here. From there we went on, via the Royal Opera House, and a drive through the beach road at Qurm, then to dinner and the spectacular Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. You arent able to go inside at night, so we wandered around taking photos and enjoying the coolness of the surroundings. After that, we were driven back to our hotel. I must add that our guide Abdullah was hugely knowledgeable and informative and our conversation was wide ranging and never flagged. Lovely man, and his tour and guiding is hugely recommended. I give this tour 5 stars, purely on Abdullahs brilliant guiding. He answered any question we had fully and never faltered, in perfect English. Very highly recommended.

The tour was amazing. Muscat at night is the best. We saw the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and visited the Mutrah Souq. Our guide, who met us at our hotel, had great knowledge of the history and the culture of Oman. He guided us when we traded at the souq which was very helpful. We both enjoyed the trip and can recommend your company.

This evening/night tour is a great introduction to Muscat in order to get your bearings on the day of arrival in the city. The native Omani guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, with excellent English and fun to be with. As the main areas of interest in Muscat are spread out from each other, I found this tour gave me a great introduction to what I wanted to see and explore in Muscat, and then could revisit some of the places on my own the following day - and from a different perspective in the daytime. The museum and transport recommendations provided by the guide proved very useful and helped me round out a great stay in Muscat.

The driver was wonderful - however, because of a visiting royalty - most roads were closed off, and thus made it difficult to drive directly to the places to visit. He did a masterful job of circumnavigating, however, it did cut short on our time - so did not get to see some of the lighted places. And, a rush thru the typical Omanie dinner - however, we did get to it, so thankful for his endeavor to get through traffic. I was very impressed with Muscat, however feel it was hard to reconfirm all the Viator tours while cruising. However, Royal Carribean did not offer as many tours as Viator, so happy they were available.
