Day 1


After arriving in Muscat you will be transferred to your selected hotel for check in. Your holiday has started so it is time to relax so take the rest of the day to gather your thoughts and get ready for what will be an experience never to be forgotten. (L, D)

Day 2


Start your day with a delicious breakfast before leaving on a tour of Muscat City. The tour begins by visiting the Grand Mosque which stands exquisitely against the skyline. Once you have taken in the brilliance of the Grand Mosque it is time to head to Mutrah where you visit the Bait Al Zubair Museum and a photo stop by Qasr Al Alam (His Majesty's Palace) before heading to the lively Mutrah souk. Bargain with the locals and see what treasures you can find lying around in the twisting and winding walkways. (B, L, D)

Day 3


Day at your leisure to enjoy the hotel facilities (B, L, D)

Day 4


Enjoy a leisurely breakfast, pack and transfer to the airport for your departure. Sadly all good things have to come to an end but we look forward to welcoming you back when you return. (B)
