Explore at your next stop the exotic fish, fresh fruits and colorful vegetables at the traditional market in Muttrah.

Visiting a city for the first time, we always try to do a privite city tour first. It is the fastest way to learn more about the local culture. This tour exceeded our expectations. The tour guide was open and willing to answer all our questions. The private car was also very comfotable. Because we allready visited the souq, he showed us the local fish & vegetables market instead, as wel the other city highlights. The Grand Mosques was astonishing. Although we visited the biggest mosque in the world in Abu Dhabi and several other beautfull mosques in Egypt, Spain and Istanbul, the one in Oman is the most exceptional one. They all have their history and are beautifull, but the one in Muscat is a must see. The opera house is also a must. However, you have buy a ticket to get in. Once inside you will have a dedicated guide, who tells you all about the building and unbelievable technical innovationns in the big hall and its stage. Really a must.
Our tour gude also gave some tips for our tour the next 7 days. A well appreciated free consultancy, A reason to come back another year and book a private tour again.

We were given a most comprehensive half day tour by a charming guide who spoke immaculate English. His car was very comfortable, clean and he arrived on time. As a guide we could not have asked for a better person . Always attentive and knew the answers to our most searching questions, in the fish market , fruit and vegetable market as well as the Souk and the prize of the tour the Grand Mosque. We also visited the relatively new Royal Opera house and were delighted to visit the auditorium.
Having visited Oman 7 years ago the change to both the road system and new buildings was unrecognisable
I do worry that the new building programme will in the end outstrip demand. A wonderful trip with truely knowledge guide. I totally recommend Saif Al Brashdi as my tour guide.

We had a half day tour with our excellent guide, Saif. He was very informative, courteous and added little touches like stopping for tea and water as we travelled about. We also undertook a sunset cruise with the same company and Saif drove us again to board our boat at the Marina.

Would highly recommend, and thank you Saif for a memorable couple of days.

We had a great half-day trip visiting the mosque, opera, souq and the palace. Especially the souq was a great experience which would not have been a possible. In addition we talked a lot about the omami culture. Thank you a lot for this trip!

Booked half-day private tour of Muscat City on Feb. 22. Local guide Mohamed picked-me up at my hotel at 9 a.m. with nice Audi car and drove me to the famous sights of Muscat for almost 5 hours. Mohamed turned out to be a very pleasant and knowledgeable local guide answering all the questions that I had. He was open to drop the proposed visit to a museum and instead drove me to some other places that have attracted my attention. Tour was very comfortable with sufficient photo stops en route. Highly recommend this tour and local guide Mohamed who is a good 'ambassador' to his beautiful country. THANKS! Ralf from Germany
