Description

Welcome to Riyadh! Your tour of this vibrant city begins with a visit to Boulevard Riyadh City, one of the largest zones in Riyadh offering a plethora of activities and experiences for visitors of all ages and interests. As you explore the nine majestic subzones of Boulevard Riyadh City, you'll find something to captivate every member of your group, from shopping and sports to adventure and music. (Optional) If you're up for more excitement, consider a stop at Boulevard World, an incredible theme park where art, culture, food, and games come together seamlessly. Perfect for families and individuals alike, Boulevard World offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the cultures of various countries, sample their cuisine, and enjoy thrilling attractions. Next on your itinerary is a journey through time at Riyadh’s Souk Al-Zal, a historic market dating back to 1901. Located near the iconic Masmak fortress, this market offers a glimpse into the rich history of Saudi Arabia and its traditional commerce. For lunch, indulge in authentic Saudi cuisine at MAMA NOURA Restaurant, renowned for its delicious shawarma, falafel, roasted chicken, pastries, and juices. It's the perfect spot to refuel before continuing your exploration of the city. After lunch, head to the KAFD Grand Mosque, a striking landmark nestled amidst Riyadh's modern skyline. Serving as the Juma’ah mosque for the King Abdullah Financial District, this architectural marvel is inspired by the crystalline formations of desert roses, offering a serene setting for prayer and contemplation. Finally, no visit to Riyadh is complete without ascending the Kingdom Tower or Mamlaka Tower, the tallest building in the city. Take in breathtaking panoramic views of Riyadh from the Sky Bridge Al Mamlaka (available with an extra ticket), and explore the variety of dining and shopping options within the tower's bustling commercial strip. As your tour comes to an end, relax and reflect on your unforgettable day in Riyadh as you travel back to your hotel. Should you wish to add any additional activities or experiences to your itinerary, simply let your tour leader know, and they will be happy to accommodate your preferences. Enjoy your time in Riyadh, where there's always something new to discover!
