Discover the capital of Oman, a city with charming simplicity and breathtaking views.
What you’re going to do
First you will visit the iconic Sultan Qaboos Grand mosque before setting off to Muttrah, the heart of Muscat. This ancient city is surrounded by impressive mountains and is home to many historic landmarks.
Visit Mutrah Souk - this traditional Arab market is said to be one of the oldest souks in the Arab peninsula. Dating back over 200 years, Al Dhalam ("Darkness" in Arabic) Souq is a labyrinth of narrow lanes whose colorful shops sell an eclectic mix of vibrant garments, intricate silverware, traditional Omani daggers and much more. From here, it is around a 20 minute flat walk on pavement to get back to the vehicles where you will depart for Al Alam Palace and The National Museum of Oman.
