Muscat City Tour & Sunset Boat Cruise (Full-day)

Tour Details

Muscat Governorate is considered the pulsating heart of Oman. Perhaps what is striking about Muscat Governorate and its states is the breathtaking intermingling of ancient cultural heritage and modern style. This allows Oman to preserve its historic character, and at the same time enjoying its contemporary spirit. Your private guide will meet you at the hotel lobby and tour starts by driving towards the magnificent Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, one of the most beautiful architectural piece of work located in Wilayat (district) Bawshar is like a radiant lighthouse attracting its visitors to interact with the spirit of Islam as a religion, science and civilization. This mosque highlights its role as a scientific and intellectual source of knowledge across the Islamic world. The mosque was built over a period of 6 years from 1995 to 2001. Non-Muslims are allowed to visit the mosque every day, except Friday, from 8:00 until 11:00 am. Visitors are asked to dress modestly and, in a way, befitting places of worship (long pants or skirt and long sleeves top for women). Women are also required to cover their hair with shawl. We continue by driving via waterfront corniche and visit Mutrah Souq, one of the oldest markets in Oman, dating back about two hundred years. Its antiquity has perhaps increased the extent of its beauty, magic and allure. You cannot see Mutrah Souq from the outside, as it stretched deep within the city. Then we continue by driving to the old town locally well known as Old Muscat and visit the official residence of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos; Al Alam Palace. The palace is an architectural marvel for both its design and its location between the twin Portuguese forts Mirani and Jalali (A brief photograph stop from outside only). Then visit one museum. Then we will have lunch stop (own expense). Then we will transfer you to the Marina for the sunset boat trip which starts at 16:00 PM and ends at 18:00 PM for 2 Hours. After the cruise, we will drop you back to the hotel.
