    2. Muscat by Night with Local Dinner from Muscat

Lulled by the Arabian Sea, the city has undergone dramatic development in the past two or three decades. However, Muscat takes pride in the fact that it has preserved its lustrous culture and heritage. Your visit starts with a tour of the grand mosque, which is an architectural marvel and perhaps the new landmark of the city. The drive continues through the ministries' area, where you can see a number of modern buildings with touches of ancient, Islamic architecture. Then, visit the fish market and the folkloric Muttrah souk, with its narrow covered alleys where you can smell exotic aromas of mounds of spices, coffee beans, and ancient remedies, all enticing perfumes that fill the air.

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!
