Muscat City Tour
Culture and History tour in Muscat
Tour Price : $50-200 Duration : 4-5 hours Languages: English, Russian
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. (It is necessary to wear a headscarf, long skirt or trousers and long sleeves for ladies. Men should wear long trousers).
We then drive to Muttrah, the unique part of old Muscat. Here we have two points of our interest. Muttrah Souk houses a wide selection of gold, silver, spices, pashminas, hubbly-bubbly pipes, old guns, fabrics and bric-a-brac. The labyrinth of alleyways are many; most of the souk would remain undiscovered after hours of walking. Muttrah Fish Souk has a wide selection of seafood and we are going to have an unforgettable time here.
The next jorney takes us to the Old Muscat where we proceed on foot, walking around the Al Alam Palace with its fairytail towers with gold and blue; and pass by ancient Mirani and Jelali forts.
Our next point of interest is Bait Al Zubair Museum. It displays an outstanding collection of the finest artefacts from all over Oman. Weapons, Omani dress, jewellery and houshold items mixed with the modern and traditional art.
Here our tour ends.
Full day city tour is also possible with different activities to choose from.
