Your booking will be made directly on Hala Yalla


Embark on a unique adventure where you will get a chance to explore and visit top attractions in Riyadh that showcase the rich cultural heritage of Saudi Arabia. Start by embarking on a guided tour of the splendid Al Masmak Fortress, one of the most important landmarks of Saudi heritage. Previously an armoury, the site is now a heritage building. From the fortress, walk to Souq Al Zal, a traditional marketplace that preserves the spirit of old Arabia. You can check high-quality local products there, such as bukhoor, pottery, prayer beads, traditional wear like Abayas for women, and unique accessories like the Agal and Shemagh, a headdress worn by men. Visitors can try these on and take plenty of photos, and even walk back to Masmak Fortress to take pictures with this iconic landmark as your backdrop. Head to the spice shop in the souq to put your sense of smell to the test and get a chance to win amazing prizes. Visit the National Museum next, a part of the King Abdulaziz Historical Centre, which was established to showcase many important antiques, manuscripts and paintings from the bygone era. Head off to Najd Village, where you can enjoy authentic Najdi flavours in a traditional setting before calling it a day.
