The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been hidden “behind the veil” for many years. Throughout the decades, its people have had very limited contact with the non-Muslim world. This is a groundbreaking journey that very few individuals have embarked on. Experience the fascinating history and sites of the kingdom as we explore the largest nation in the Middle East, seldom visited by outsiders. On this exclusive nine-day tour, we experience sweeping desert vistas, archaeological sites dating to prehistory, and historic cities and towns reflecting both the epic dynasties of past days and traditional village life. Along the way, we have the opportunity to visit three of Saudi Arabia’s six UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Hands-on cultural experience is also an important part of this tour as we meet and converse with locals, sample traditional Saudi food, and a lot more.
