We will be in Muscat on Friday, January 31, on a cruise stop. We have not been able to find any tours offered on that day because it is a Friday. Do any local agencies offer any tours on that day, and if not, what can one do on their own in Muscat on a Friday?

Also any tips on fast tracking my visa (I am a UK citizen and understand that I can only pick it up on arrival)- any advice welcome thanks
Would it be possible to rent an apartment in Muscat for 1 week the end of October / beginning of November
Yes, I know that almost EVERY place is worth the visit, if you know what to look for.!
But I should decide whether Oman is worth a trip made on purpose; I do not go with organised tours and I prefer to go around with public transports or hired car to reach diffficult places. Are there enough feasible things to do to justify a 2/3 weeks trip?
Kindly Tell me my stop over 10 hours so oman air give me the transist visa or provide me hotel or another thing.

Hi.. I've been dying to visit Oman and finally got the chance. I have two questions (fairly broad)
1) We are a family of 7 with a 1yo child. Are there any apartment hotels that one would recommend - I hear Delmon and Safeer are great choices?
2) We are there for 5 days and plan to hire a car. Can anyone recommend what to see around the country please? I realise Oman is huge and places like Salalah need another trip - but would appreciate any insights on areas close to Muscat(upto 2-3hrs drive?) Thanks
