Traveling privately on a custom program means flexibility


Custom and private travel is our specialty. We’ve been designing unforgettable custom trips to the region for decades. A majority of our clients travel on custom itineraries.

Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Saudi Arabia. Get in touch with one of our Private Journey Specialists to craft an itinerary that’s uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Learn about traditional Najdi architecture in Ushaiger, considered by many to be Saudi Arabia’s most beautiful village.
  • Mingle with the laidback animals and spirited traders at the world’s largest camel market in Buraydah.
  • Explore the expansive archaeological site of Fayd, which for 500 years was the most important oasis on the pilgrimage route from Baghdad to Mecca.
  • Marvel at the beautifully executed prehistoric petroglyphs of Jubbah, which include hundreds of images of animals that flourished here thousands of years ago in the more hospitable climate.
  • Traverse the red sands of Al Nufud Al Kabir, one of the Arabian Peninsula’s most classically picturesque deserts.
  • Glimpse into the future at Neom, a $500 billion “smart city” currently under construction along the Gulf of Aqaba.
  • Discover the remarkable Nabataean tombs of Hegra, which share many characteristics with, but are largely better preserved than, the famous tombs of Hegra’s sister city, Petra.
  • Get an overview of the holy city of Medina from Mount Uhud, itself an important Islamic site.
  • Stroll the streets and explore the bazaars of Al Balad, Jeddah’s historic city center.
