Join our tour group to the once notoriously hard to access Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which has only recently opened up to tourism and offers a new tourist visa program for 51 nationalities, both males and females can join us on our tour.
Our tour begins in the capital city, Riyadh, where you’ll explore the modern centre of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as well as its ancient history in and around, from the Al Masmak fort to the Edge of the World!
From Riyadh you’ll board the train to Qassim, one of the 13 provinces of Saudi Arabia and located within the heart of the country. Known to the locals as the “alimental basket” of the country, for its agricultural assets, this area is most renowned to the outside world as the most conservative part of the entire Kingdom.
Saudi Arabia does not lack sand, and whilst in Qassim you’ll have the opportunity to watch the sun set over the huge dunes surrounding the city. We’ll continue our journey to the ancient city of Haʼil where you’ll be able to visit Jubbah town and explore the forts and mosques of this famous city.
You’ll then board a flight to Jeddah, and explore the stunningly beautiful, labyrinthine Al Balad old town and its coral houses and souqs as well as walking the famous corniche. You’ll then spend an evening within the mountains at Ta’if, famous for its rose farming. The trip concludes in Jeddah with a unique opportunity for you to go snorkelling in the Red Sea!
