Guided Tour activities in Hejaz
With a solid reputation locally, this tour company can organise Saudi visas, tours, car rental (with or without drivers and guides), scuba diving, desert excursions (including falconry) and boat trips. Ahmed Mostafa, the Saudi owner (who lived formerly in Germany) runs the company with a killer combination of local know-how and Teutonic efficiency.
The General Directory for Culture & Tourism in Jeddah organises an excellent 'lecture and walking tour' of Jeddah's history and architecture at 09:00 every Thursday, meeting at Naseef House. To book a place, email or call the charming Director, Sami Nowar. It's located south of Souq al-Alawi.
