Itinerary

Depart from Port – 20 mins Grand Mosque – 45 mins – 01 hour Visit the Muttrah Souq – 01 hour Visit Bait Al Zubair – 01 hour Al Alam Palace and Jalali & Mirani Fort - Photo Stop – 20 Mins – 30 mins Arrive at the Port – 15 mins When does my tour start? The tour start time will be set as per your ship schedule. When do I return to port after my tour/excursion? The tour is 4.5 hours in length so you will be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure. All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time) Tour Operates: - Tour can be operated any day of the week except for the visit of Grand Mosque, which will be closed after 11 am and on Friday's or public holidays. In this case, a photo stop will be made to admire the monument from the outside.

You will be met at the port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your air conditioned transportation ready to commence your tour.

The first visit of this tour will be the Grand Mosque (please note:  the Grand Mosque is closed daily after 11:00am and on Fridays and Public Holiday days). The Grand Mosque is home to truly spectacular art work, beautiful chandeliers and a remarkable one piece carpet covering the entirety of the prayer hall measuring approximately 4300 square metres, the grand mosque is truly a sight to behold. After enjoying this part of the tour, then you are going to love what we have planned for you next, the Muttrah souq!

The Muttrah souq holds the superb 18th century merchant’s house, and after visiting here you will then have the fantastic opportunity of shopping for an hour before moving on to the Bait Al Zubair museum. Interestingly the museum was founded as a house in 1914 making it a fascinating landmark that you would have to be mad to miss! In 1998 the house was opened as a museum and showcases many aspects of Omani culture and its heritage.

As you depart the museum you will head off to the town of Muscat and explore the old town to Fort Mirani which was completed in 1587. You will also visit Fort Jalali which has been renovated and is used as a museum for Omani culture and heritage.  The last part of the tour will be a stop in front of the al alam palace before driving back to the port to conclude this unforgettable tour.
