About The Trip

Following the incredible success of our first trip to Saudi Arabia as trailblazers, we will be going back to the region 2021 with an even more exciting itinerary!

This young country has both a rich history as the birthplace of Islam and a modern presence with rich oil reserves. With the introduction of Vision 2030, an attempt to diversify its economy, this once forbidden land is ready to welcome visitors.
