Do you accompany your groups whilst in Saudi Arabia?

Do you cater for vegetarians of people with special dietary needs?

We cannot make any provisions for vegetarians or people with other special dietary requirements during the Hajj days. However meals served in the hotels have a variety of dishes and will usually include some form of vegetarian dishes.

Why does a 2 week package cost more than a 3 week package?

Although the 2 Week package is much shorter, the period of stay in the hotels falls at peak time thus increasing the rates. The 3 Week package stays are normally when the hotel rates are generally lower.
