During this tour you will discover a unique blend of the ancient and the modern. Muscat is a beautiful clean city, which lies in the middle of a maze of brown pleated mountain lulled by the Arabian Sea. The city has undergone dramatic development in the past two or three decades. However, it has pride in that it has never lost its heritage and culture.
Your visit will start with a tour of the Grand Mosque, an architectural marvel and is perhaps the new landmark of the city. You will continue your drive through the ministries area. Here you can see a number of modern building with touches of Islamic architecture. Next you will visit the fish market and the Muttrah Souk with its narrow covered alleys where the exotic smells of mounds of spices. Coffees, ancient remedies and enticing perfumes fill the air.
