1. Muscat by Night with Local Dinner from Muscat

Pick up from your hotel. The tour will start from Shatti Al Qurum (next to Intercontinental Hotel), this tour is a short version of the city tour with a night perspective. We will start the tour passing by the Royal Opera, a massive monument ordered by the Sultan himself as a music lover. We will then make a photo stop at the illuminated Mohammed Al Ameen Mosque. Afterwards, we head towards the Old Muscat and its Corniche. We will admire the city's attractive harbor area. Then go to the Muttrah Souq to discover a mix of the old and new along with a myriad sight, sounds and fragrances from everyday life. Do a little souvenir shopping and continue to visit & drive to most prominent landmark in Muscat to the Sultan’s Palace (Al Alam Palace) to take a photo of the gates and colonnaded approach by night. Flanked by the 16th-century Portuguese forts of Jalali and Mirani, the palace is today largely used for ceremonial purposes. The lightings are just amazing. We will then head back to our start point passing the famous Al Bustann hotel, Wadi Al Kabir popular area, Ruwi downtown to end up in our final destination to savor a great Omani fish grilled to perfection surrounded by the locals & then transfer back to your hotel.

We really enjoyed the trip to Muscat at night. We drove past various sights with a mini bus on the main axis. These were explained by audio guides. Too bad the translation into German was only partially understandable and repeated itself when driving past again. There were various photo stops. The visit to the market, which we were able to explore independently, was very exciting. We enjoyed the dinner in a Turkish restaurant very much. The service was a little strange. You could choose between a meat or fish menu, but the dishes were served without explanations and it wasn't mentioned whether there was a starter and dessert. (It came both and was very rich and good). We recommend taking the tour at the beginning of your stay and then taking a closer look at the sights (such as the Great Mosque and a guided tour of the opera) during the day. Tour guide was very nice and gave us enough time to stay.
