This half-day city tour of Muscat was simply perfect – with our guide Abdullah we had the best guide you can imagine and actually booked two more tours with him (2. Nizwa and Jabal Shams and 3. Whadi Bani Khalid and Wahiba Sands). Already when clarifying some open points ahead of the tour Abdullah was very responsive and answered questions in no time. On the day of the tour he was already waiting for us in the lobby at the appointed time. Everything went well and according to plan and we got to see all the beautiful sights as listed on the itinerary. Abdullah even built it some extras. Abdullah is truly an excellent ambassador for his beautiful country, very friendly, courteous, open-minded and pleasant to talk to. Next to this he is very knowledgeable and shares a lot of information which made the tour a most enjoyable and valuable experience. We saw and learnt a lot on Muscat and Oman on that tour and can most warmly recommend Abdullah and Discover Mazoon Tours Oman to anybody.

Overall, a fantastic experience from start to finish. Our tour guide (Abdullah) was very friendly and welcoming from the beginning. His knowledge of the city of Muscat and the country of Oman, in general, was top-notch. A highly intelligent man. I can not recommend his service enough.

The tour was very interesting and it really is the best way to see Muscat and learn about its history and culture. The price is also very reasonable for the quality of service that you receive. We even ended up booking another tour (Dolphin watching and Snorkeling tour) with the same company, which was also excellent and I would highly recommend.

We arranged this tour for our second day in Muscat. We were pleased when it was Abdullah who met us in our hotel lobby as we had read good reviews of him and his tour. The reviews are all accurate - he's a super friendly, easy going tour guide; he showed us what we wanted to see and filled us in with all the info we could need to properly appreciate what we were seeing. We did a half day tour starting with the mosque and ending at the Al Alam Palace and seafront with the souq and Bait Zubair in the middle and it was just right time-wise for us. I highly recommend Abdullah and Discover Oman tours for this short, fun, interesting intro to Muscat and Oman.

I have written hundreds of reviews and believe in the power of feedback: I hope you find my review helpful.

This is the perfect first-day introduction to both Muscat and Oman and our guide, Salem, was the personification of hospitality, kindness and excellence.

The best part of the tour for us was the views atop the Mutrah Fort. Just spectacular views and well worth the stairs to get there.

We personally skipped the museum as was our choice.

The Grand Mosque was amazing. Stunning.

I cannot say enough about Salem. He was the perfect first-day ambassador as a tour guide. He put us at ease and allowed us to go with the flow. Well done, Salem!

1/2 day tour is perfect for your first full-day in Muscat.

Our guide for this half day tour was Salim. His local knowledge was amazing and made the tour. From the outset we were contacted by Abdullah to clarify everything and it just got better from there. Salim turned up exactly on time and he gave us an overview of his counrty on the journey to Muscat. Visited the following. Grand Mosque, Market, Souq, Sultans Palce & Fort. Very happy and would highly recommed.
Best and most welcoming part of the middle east I have visited.

To really get to know a place, it is best to see it with a local. We were told Abdullah was the best, and he did not disappoint. He greeted us on time and showed us all the major highlights of this fascinating city. The Grand Mosque is an especially stunning gem!

After flying in late the day before this was a great introduction to Muscat city and we received a lot of additional local information for our upcoming road trip through Oman.
Abdullah is very knowledgeable and friendly and he explains the sights well.
The mosque is spectacular, one of the 4 greatest mosque sights around the Arabic world and Muscat is beautiful. What a change from the hustle and bustle of Dubai’s commerciality and the crowdedness and many other problems of Egypt. (Not trying to be critical - we enjoyed out time there, but Oman and Muscat are very different.
High recommend taking the tour with Abdullah at discoveromantours.
