5 star tour of Muscat with Ahmed!
Allan_S, Feb 2024
The tour of Muscat was excellent - Ahmed our guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative. Throughout the half day, we covered numerous sites/attractions (all fantastic) and certainly fitted a lot of sightseeing in - A credit to Ahmed that the tour never felt rushed in the slightest. The tour was a great success in no small part to Ahmed who is a very personable and pleasant individual.
Excellent tour of the highlights of Mucat

Enjoyed Abdula’s knowledge and willingness to answer all questions. Open to explain his Muslim beliefs and its history .Proud of Oman and its progress in a short time.
Muscat is a must to visit
Samir_K, Dec 2023
Muscat is surreal…natural beauty plus the genuine people makes it a must visit city. You have to be guided by Mr Adil…he is simply the best!!!
Better of getting a taxi and going places yourself
Sadia_I, May 2023
The tour was not as expected. A number of places we were meant to see during the tour were closed and consequently we were unable to view them properly. We feel as though the price of the tour did no reflect the service that was provided, having spent close to £200 and still left to be disappointed by the final result is not good. The tour is advertised on the site to be a half day tour which would be “4 hours to 5 hours” however we were only provided with 3 hours, again minimising what we were provided with. The mosque was closed because it was outside of opening hours (we hadn’t been told about these hours prior to booking), the opera house wasn’t open either. We were taken there with the assumption of going inside (which we were told) but then later told we can’t go in, so again we saw nothing. Also we had already been to the souk the day before ourselves, so weren’t taken there again as part of the tour, we asked for an alternative to be provided but there was none offered for this to compensate or make up for that within the tour. In conclusion we were extremely disappointed with this service/tour which was been provided and do not feel we were provided with the service that has been charged for.
Response from Host, May 2023
Hello We are sorry to know that you are not satisfied with your experience with us . Appreciated if you check our tour again and you will find that the mosque has limited hours to visit from inside other wise it will be outside stop photo and that is clear announced . Also Opera house is stop photo not visit from Inside .
Enjoyable and educational.
