Muscat Layover
Oct 2019 • Family
We had a 7hr layover in Muscat. I reached out to Majed and he arranged a 4hr city private tour with a guide. The tour was awesome to get a glance about Muscat. I would definitely recommend it to folks who doesn't want to spend 6+hrs at airport waiting for a connecting flight.

Taking advantage of the 7.5 hour layover tour in Muscat
Me and my family just came back from a trip to London, and within as early as 6 months before the trip we have chosen Oman Air as our carrier of choice due to very reasonable prices (540 GBP for a return flight from Jakarta to London) and during the inbound flight we had a lenient layover time of 7.5 hours. As none of my family had been to Oman before, I did a bit of research of what can be done during a short layover tour in Muscat in the evening with such duration. Vacation Packages Oman was on top of the search result, and amazingly within seconds from the moment I opened the website, a manager on duty promptly popped up on the live chat bubble and directly answered my inquiries. I finally agreed with what they had to offer and I didn't regret it. I felt really guilty because I showed up more than an hour late due to late flight from London to Muscat and had to amend the number of participants because of my grandparents being not fit that evening, but nevertheless our guide Mr. Sulaiman said it's not a big deal and continued on guiding us seeing the Grand Mosque, the Royal Palace, and the Mutrah Souq. He is very friendly and informative and speaks really good English as well. We are picked up on a large air conditioned MPV
Big thanks to Mr. Majed Khaled as well on helping me with the inquiries beforehand. I am looking forward to going back to Oman for a longer period of time to enjoy more of what they have to offer.

We were lucky to get the tour from Said, the general manager himself. He arrived early and not only showed us the sights of Muscat but shared his passion of the city! From the mosque, to the opera house, the palace and the Muttrah market - he was knowledgeable and very flexible. Vehicle was in excellent condition and stocked with beverages and snacks. It felt like a VIP treatment! Thank you very much Said for spending time with us and best of luck in your numerous endeavours!

Superb day in Muscat!
Mar 2018 • Friends
We thorougly enjoyed our time sightseeing in Muscat. A great experience! Our guide picked us up from the hotel on time, we had water, juice and snacks provided, which came really handy during and after walking and driving all around the famous sights. We visited all the sights we planned, and more so we had a chance to go the beach, have coffee and relax. Our guide also helped us reserve the best table in a restaurant chosen by us, for later evening that day, with the most beautiful panoramic view to the corniche. We were happy to experience the friendly hospitality of Oman, provided to us by our guide and Vacation Packages Oman! Thank you.

I booked this as a shore excursion as i had a cruise that visited Muscat and had a really good time! My tour guide Said went above and beyond to make sure we had a pleasant experience. He was very patient, provided great information about Muscat, had no problem stopping if needed.He even took some pictures for us and always had a smile! I Highly recommend this tour and ask for Said !
