Muscat the Fascinating Capital Private Tour

Very wonderful tour of Muscat for someone with very little time - this half-day tour took about four and half hours. The driver was very polite and knowledgeable. He arrived in a very clean vehicle, drove safely and touched on important points of the city, including old Muscat City and the Palace of the Sultanate. ...Joseph A., Saudi Arabia – See more reviews
