Rise and shine with breakfast at your hotel before departing of the old city of Diriyah. In the 19th century this was the capital of the high plateau of central Arabia called the Najd. Diriyah, which today is located in the outskirts of Riyadh, was built in the 15th century on the banks of Wadi Hanifa, a valley set in the eastern part of the Najd. It is one of the most important historical sites of Saudi Arabia as it is there that the history of the conquest of the Arabian Peninsula by the Al Saud family began.

Power up with breakfast at your hotel and get ready for a day of exploring AlUla, an ancient oasis that has been inhabited for the last 7000 years as evidenced by ancient carvings in and around the site. During the 1st millennium BCE, the city of Dedan developed thanks to its strategic location on the frankincense trade road. Dedan grew to become one of the oldest Arabian kingdoms that ruled over most of what today is known as the provinces of Tabuk and Madinah. During the 1st century BCE the Nabatean people coming from Petra settled 30 kilometers north of Dedan in Al-Hijr where they built 94 monumental tombs similar to the ones they dug in Petra. We will start our exciting day with the visit of two ancient carving sites in AlUla, then we will pass by the ancient city of Dedan.

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before visiting famous Hegra (Madain Saleh), the first designated UNESCO World Heritage site of Saudi Arabia. Madain Saleh, whose original name was Al-Hijr or Hegra in Greek, is the southernmost important city of the Nabatean Kingdom that flourished thanks to the caravan trade between the 2nd century BCE until the Roman conquest in 106 CE. It is the second richest Nabatean city in terms of monumental tombs with 94 decorated funeral monuments, including some of the most vibrant and well conserved structures that showcase the architectural prowess of the Nabateans builders. We will lead you through this fascinating site and share secrets of its tombs, ancient inscriptions, stone structures, and more. Our tour will be followed by an included lunch before we head towards Jibal Al-Rukkab and Leopard trail.

It was also the gateway for pilgrims to Mecca who arrived by sea. On arrival, check in at your hotel and enjoy an included lunch. This afternoon, we will start our tour by visiting Old Jeddah called Al-Balad that was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014. This walking tour of the old town will take you along the narrow streets whose shade is provided by elegant tower houses made with coral stone and decorated by large wooden structures called Roshan. While most of the houses were built in the late 19th century, but some of them are more than 400 years old. There, we will visit the Bait Nassif – a house built for a prominent family dating back to the mid 1800's, the old Market, and the old Mosque. We will end our tour driving towards the Jeddah Corniche, the 30 km coastal resort area of the city of Jeddah. At the edge of the Corniche Road you will see the Al Rahmah Mosque, also known as the floating mosque, since it is built on stilts and appears to hover on the Red Sea during high tide. The Corniche features a coastal road overlooking the Red Sea, recreation areas, pavilions, and large-scale civic sculptures as well as King Fahd's Fountain – the highest fountain in the world. Delight in a farewell dinner tonight and overnight in Jeddah. (B, L, D)
