Outstanding tour - we went around tour a couple of times, got off at the pier where 2 cruise ships were docks - which ment 8000 additional people in the tour of Muscat !!! Things were bustling - It was all great !! We had gone from Doha, Qatar, found the Mascut people layed back and not too much of a hurry - enjoyed that !!!
An excellent tour and good value for money. The ship's shuttle goes to the start point of the tour by the souk where there is plenty going on both before and after the bus tour. There is a lot to see, some varied landscapes and, of course, the opportunity to hop off if something attracts you particularly. The latter part of the tour, around the old city was especially attractive and interesting. It is worth getting off at the penultimate stop and walking the last ten minutes along the Corniche to the souk. A very attractive area and you can't possibly get lost.
My favorite way to see a city, and this was no exception - perfect for Muscat.
Hi, to all concerned about muscat city hop on hop off bus.What can i say. this lovely open top bus will take you to lot,s of lovely places to see in muscat. They,re lovely to get round in. The souks. the parks the coffee shops, it,s all there. so a good price and the perfect way to get round.there,s always they,re very efficent and free water as you wish. Top marks.
Where possible we always like Hop on Hop off, you are able to see the most of a place you visit and have choices of getting
off to explore places that interest you, then back to the next stop. Our loop took us by the Opera House, Mountain pass, Beach
area, Parliament and .....we finished at the Muttrah Souk Market - great experience,
Tour is good, cover the main portion of the city, however there are some spots that could be considered in a future to be included in the tour, like the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. The staff and drivers are very kind and friendly, always helping you and answering all the questions.
Great way to see Muscat but very expensive for what you get but then Muscat int cheap. Good thing the big bus has free wifi And also free water which helps. Great to be met at the pier when the cruise ship arrived and left earlier than scheduled. Also cheaper to prepay rather than buy direct on the day
There was a problem with the bus program, so we only had a panoramic trip which showed us main touristic places of Muscat. Driver very helpful. Got to go to Souk Matarh which is a great place for shopping.
We rode the bus around twice and didn't figure out what was worth getting off to see. So visited the souk which didn't require transportation to get to.
Just a waste of time. not very good since the bus runs every 2 hours and they said that that day the bus will not stop in some places it will only stop for 5 minutes in some other places but that's it. I was reading the reviews about this bu tour and they have very bad reviews but I gave then a try anyway. very bad experience.
