Your guide will meet you at your hotel and take you to Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque (except Fridays). Construction of the mosque took six years and it was inaugurated by the Sultan of Oman on 4th May 2001. After your tour of the mosque you will drive along the waterfront Corniche to firstly visit the Fish Market, then Muttrah Souk where you can shop for silver, jewellery, spices and pashminas and finally Bait Al Baranda museum for an overview of Muscat and Omani history.

When you’ve had your fill of Muttrah you will proceed to Old Muscat where you will see Al Alam Palace which is the most flamboyant of the six royal residences of Oman’s ruling monarch, Sultan Qaboos.
