    Great tour that’s covers all the main sites of Muscat. Our guide Abdullah was always very helpful, polite, and friendly. Also super informative about Muscat and the Muslim religion, I feel we learned a lot. He bought lunch and souvenirs for us, which was such a lovely touch. Overall, great experience!

I was surprised when the tour guide (Sharaf) and the driver picked me up because this is a private tour and I am the only guest. They customized everything according to my preference and manage the timing to suit me the best. The price of the tour is the same as Big Bus. I would strongly recommend this company to any tourists. I think the fact that they are new in the market makes them pay more attention to the customers now.

The tour was nicely organized. Abdul is an excellent guide, sharing interesting facts about the Islamic culture while visiting the Mosque and the other places. Recommended!
