Tour >> Muscat Tour
Muscat city tour. The walled city of Muscat lies in a small bay, guarded by the spectacular twin forts of Mirani & Jalali. His Majesty Sultan Qaboos's Palace - Al Alam - is an admirable sight. The tour of the National and Natural History Museums is an introduction to Oman's history, fauna and flora. Muttrah, part of the capital area, is the lively, busy trading port of the area. Its main attraction - Souq Al Dhalam - "Market of Shades" - is a labyrinth of alleyways covered by a palm roof and lit by lanterns, leading to the delights of antiques, gold, old silver, traditional handicrafts, jewellery and the rich scent of frankincense.
Visit the Grand Mosque.
Beautiful fabrics at the souq.
Lunch at a typical Middle Eastern Restaurant.
After lunch depart for the village of Bausher - a quaint village on the outskirts of Muscat where there is a glimpse of the past amidst the modern. Visit the fords, falaj system and the remnants of beehive tombs.
Return to hotel. End of tour.
