Not as expected
Patrick_D, Apr 2022
Very bad guide. Although we tried several times to start conversation, we hardly got response. Every stop, he gave almost no explanation (his English was very bad, although the service was said to be in English). He ran through everything very quick, hardly no time to enjoy and take pictures.
Response from Host, Apr 2022

Worth it

Great tour! We had the same tour guide as our trip to wadi shab. He unfortunately got told off by the oman opera house for giving the tour inside rather than waiting for the opera guides as per the rules. This set us back a bit in time but was no problem! The rest of the tour was great - maybe a bit more info about the fort would be interesting!

Nice and friendly driver who gave us a good impression of his hometown. Took us to his favorite tea House to taste special Omani tea.
Best tour and guide in Muscat!
Rebecca_S, Nov 2021
We had Ayoub as our guide and we could not have been luckier. The whole day was awesome, from the pick up until the drop off. We learned so much about this beautiful city and the culture of Oman. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to discover the beautiful places of Muscat. Shukran Ayoub!
Fun day in Muscat

A bit of a blur now but I know we had a great tour and our guide was very pleasant and helpful. My husband used a collapsible mobility scooter and he insisted in helping get it in and out of trunk. Even made a stop on his own for a snack he wanted us to try. I reviewed earlier w/ the local company connected w/ Viator.

Muscat private Tour

We just did this tour on Thurs. 30/01/20 our tour guide was a lovely young man called Abdullah who was very well versed on all the places we visited on the tour, the tour was to last 4 hours but we ended up doing 5 and I can honestly say this was the best tour by far that we have experienced in all our years travelling and I would not hesitate to recommend this great way to see some of the top places of interest in Muscat.
A Tour Worth Taking
Joan_Y, Dec 2019
I booked this tour for three of us who are seniors with a sense of adventure. It was our first private tour on our cruise trip, and I wanted to be sure we knew where to meet our tour guide. I was told to meet our guide from GidOman tours right outside of the Port gate. There were many taxi drivers there and I was concerned I would miss our tour guide, but one guide was there who worked for Gidoman and saw my ticket. He made a call to our guide who came right away to pick us up. While we waited, a taxi driver came over and told us that this was the safest place for women so we did not have to worry about anything! Everyone was so friendly that we knew we were in good hands. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and took us to all the sights listed in the itinerary. Highlights were the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and the Royal Opera House. We paid to have a tour of the Opera House and it was worth every penny! We chose not to climb the stairs leading to the other side of the Mutrah Fort, but I would have if I was younger. The Mutrah Souq provided us with some shopping and bargaining experiences. All in all, I highly recommended this tour!
Good Trip
