Schedules

Big Bus Tours Muscat operates two different schedules. On days when cruise ships are in port, we operate hop-on, hop-off bus tours every 30 minutes between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm. On non-cruise-ship days, we operate two panoramic tours each day, at 10:00am and 2:00pm. These panoramic tours are not hop-on, hop-off tours. For more information about cruise ship days, please see our 2019-2020 Cruise Ship Schedule PDF.
