Your booking will be made directly on Hala Yalla


Come along on an exciting journey to Diriyah. Located on the west bank of Wadi Hanifa, Diriyah was the capital of Najd (the central plateau of the Arabian Peninsula) from the 15th century until the beginning of the 18th century. 

It is the birthplace of Saudi Arabia and its importance in the history of the Arabian Peninsula was highlighted when it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in 2010, as the finest example of Najdi architecture. 

Diriyah dates back thousands of years as it was on an ancient trade and pilgrimage route, serving as a meeting point for those traveling to or from Asia, Africa and Europe. 

On your tirp you’ll enjoy Diriyah’s stunning architecture before returning to downtown Riyadh. As we head towards the city, we have the opportunity to enjoy the rapid development of this cosmopolitan capital, which the Saudi government has planned to become the largest city in the Middle East in the next 10 years.
