Full description

At the start of your tour, drive through a serene coconut plantation as you head to see Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. Be stunned by the modern structure and enter to see its crystal chandelier and handwoven carpet. Afterward, go just outside for a photo-op at Al-Husn Palace, which serves as the palace of the government in Dhofar. From the mosque and palace head to the Al-Baleed Archaeological Park. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the open-air site is a must-see for those visiting Salalah. Explore the park and learn about Oman's historic and maritime heritage through exhibits with manuscripts and geopolitical maps.  Before heading to the souq, stop to see frankincense trees and have the opportunity to purchase products made from extractions of the tree. Get more shopping in at Al-Hafa Souq and attempt to haggle and barter while you buy souvenirs.

Be sure to book this tour, you will get a good block about the area and lifestyle of the city of Salalah. The time frame was met perfectly and on time. All questions were answered and since there was still some time we could look at something outside the program. Be sure to book the German tour with Ahmed Tabook, was super German and presented his country with lots of charm and wit.
