We start our tour at Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, a magnificent architectural complex. Its furnishings are the grandest you will find anywhere in the region. The construction is outstanding and is a must see on anyone's agenda.
We then drive to Al Bustan street with it's gorgeous trees and continue to Muttrah, the unique part of old Muscat. Here we proceed on foot, walking around the Al Alam Palace with its fairytail towers in gold and blue; and pass by ancient Mirani and Jelali forts.
Our next point of interest is Bait Al Zubair, House of the Zubair Family. It displays an outstanding collection of the finest artefacts from all over Oman. Weapons, Omani dress, jewellery and household items mixed with modern and traditional art.
We then have a short visit to Fish market and stop at Muttrah Souk houses a wide selection of gold, silver, spices, pashminas, hubbly-bubbly pipes, old guns, fabrics and bric-a-brac. And it will be our last stop. The labyrinth of alleyways are many; most of the souk would remain undiscovered after hours of walking.
