We enjoyed this tour. The lunch was very good, with very good service. The fort was interesting and had very nice views of the countryside. It was very hot at the fort, and there are a lot of steps, so you probably don’t want this tour if you have mobility issues. Then we went to the hot springs, where the fish will nibble on your feet. This wasn’t much – basically a stream next to a parking lot. I had expected something more rural, but it was basically in the middle of a town. We were supposed to go to a fishing village next, but the tour description was not accurate and they brought us back to Muscat to the souk instead. At first I wasn’t very happy about that, but it turned out to be a nice experience. We got to the souk right around sundown, when the covered women and the children come out, so it was very good people watching. The souk was also much different from the one in Dubai, with a lot of antiques and architectural pieces (doors, window shutters, etc.), so it was interesting. Read Less

We have been to Muscat before.
We have been to Muscat before. This tour took you outside the city. We were taken to a fish market then to the Fort. A good tour to get the taste of Oman.
