Muscat City Tours

Oman is the new favourite destination among world travellers, and why not? The Sultanate has miles of endless sandy beaches, historic scenic beauty, unexplored caves, textured mountains, golden brown desert sands, and it’s the business core and Capital of the country. Muscat houses the country’s international airport and major ports to witness the inflow of thousands of tourists and business travellers each year. This also translates in having top-notch travel agencies, tour operators, and car rental companies in the city. No visit to Oman is truly complete unless you have booked yourself one of the Muscat city tours, which most travel companies offer.

No matter how many people you are travelling with, the travel agency is sure to arrange for a vehicle or mini bus that can comfortably accommodate everyone. You even have the luxury of booking a private tour, which includes a pick up from your hotel, a guide, and transport in a luxurious SUV or sedan. The tour may start from a pre-announced location in the city or may have the service of picking you and your family up right from your hotel. City tours are a great way to spend quality time with your spouse or family while seeing the best of any place without the trouble of commuting on your own without a guide. Opting for such tours also gives you a feel of the place, which may otherwise not be seen by merely staying in a hotel.

Muscat is a modern commercial centre of Oman that blends in splendidly with its traditional architectural marvels. A city tour includes a visit to the beautiful Grand Mosque, the Bait Al Zubair Museum which will give you a glimpse into Oman’s history and development, a scenic drive along the waterfront cornice before you stop to visit the famous fish market, followed by a shopping experience at Muttrah Souq. Souqs are traditional marketplaces that sell silver ornaments, household goods, perfumes, and souvenirs to bring back home. The tours also cover the amazing Al Alam alace, and the forts Mirani and Jalali.

Muscat city tours showcase the best of the city while, making sure you are comfortable and having fun. Not only foreigners, but even local enjoy such tours on holidays or when they have visitors as it is more relaxed. Being a great way to spend a day in this lovely city, such tours are known to be well organized and precise in presenting a side of Muscat you yearn to see as a visitor.
