After breakfast at the hotel, our team will pick you up and head towards Al Masmak Fort which is a vast clay and mud-brick citadel that witnessed the birth of a kingdom, Al Masmak (meaning a high, strong, and thick building). The structure serves as a proud reminder of Saudi Arabia’s storied history. (Entrance fees included).
At 4 PM, head to the city’s most famous market. Souq Al-Zal remains as noisy and vibrant as when it first emerged in 1901. Everything from gold coins to quirky handicrafts and dusty antiques can be found here, including traditional Saudi items such as dallah coffee pots and mabkhara incense burners.

Riyadh - Al Ula; Dadan & Jabal Ikhmah Guided Tour
Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast at the hotel, after which you will check out from the hotel and take a flight to AlUla.
In the evening, visit Dadan, the capital of the Dadan and Lihyan kingdoms which controlled the caravan trade in the first millennium BCE. The city, which was built meticulously from stone astride the valley’s oasis, dates back between the late 9th and early 8th century BCE (Kingdom of Dadan) and 5th–2nd century BCE (Kingdom of Lihyan). Some of the most exciting displays are more than a dozen tombs cut into the red-rock cliff faces. These tombs are up to 50 meters above ground level, spurring the imagination of how they were carved without modern construction equipment.
After exploring the ruins, a bus service takes you on a 10-minute drive to Jabal Ikhmah. A visit to this magnificent site, with its inscriptions thought to date as far back as the 1st millennium BCE, is a glimpse into the past. Gazing at its rock art of humans, musical instruments and animals, you can discover what was important in the daily lives of people in the Dadanite, Lihyanite and other ancient civilisations of AlUla.
Return back to the hotel for rest & relaxation at your leisure.
