    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.

    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.
