What people are saying about Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

Enjoyed the commentary and the tour stops. Khaled was a good driver and host. Very convenient to be picked up from our hotel It would be good if you ensured the windows were clean inside and out for photos. A map of the area and sights visited would have been helpful to follow.

Very good, concise introduction to the key places of interest within Muscat itself. I would have wished that this is a full-day event so that there would have been more browsing time. Nevertheless, I would highly recommend this event to newcomers to Muscat.

Whistle stop tour, but ideal for those like me, short on time. A DIY tour would have taken time to organise and as for value for money, unbeatable. We have experienced Grayline in the US, which was as this, straightforward.

The tour was very interesting. Everything was perfect. The guide was very friendly. Also the driver.

Great review of the city, interesting information and new things to see.
