Jeddah, Saudi Arabia's port city located on the Red Sea, is a modern commercial center and the gateway for pilgrimages to the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina. Hotels, beaches and outdoor sculptures line the Corniche, a promenade anchored in the iconic King Fahd Fountain. The historic district of Al-Balad dates back to the seventh century and preserves traditional houses built with coral.


Arrival of the boat. The guide awaits you at the port with the sign "Shorexc".

We will start our tour with the following tour:

  • Al-Balad : Old part of the city Jeddah. Our guide will tell you amazing stories about Jeddah and its surroundings. We will enjoy a wonderful walk through Al-Balad, founded in the seventh century, the old part of the city. This walking tour of the Old Town will take you through all the lesser-known must-see places. Since 2014 it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage list.
  • Al Shafee Mosque: Beautifully restored and maintained, this historic mosque, one of the finest in Jeddah, is named after one of the four great imams of classical Sunni Islam. Most of the building dates from the sixteenth century and is Ottoman in style, including the impressive minaret. However, the foundations of the mosque date back to the early period of Islam, and the mihrab (niche indicating the direction of Mecca) is almost 1,400 years old. Impressive carved red wooden doors open onto the small courtyard.
  • Nassif House: One of the most outstanding renovated structures of the old city, dating from the mid-nineteenth century. This five-storey building offers visitors the rare opportunity to experience the blend of traditional architecture with modernity. People used to recognize the house of Nasseef as "The Tree House" because it was the only house in Balad that had one. Obviously, growing a tree was not an easy task due to water scarcity. The tree grows in a small square north of the house. It may be the oldest tree in Jeddah.
  • Old Historical Market (Soco Al Alawi) this souk leaves Al Dahab Street and is the largest in the Kingdom. The market stalls are located in the heart of the old city and bustle with the activity of merchants and pilgrims. If you look hard enough, you'll find authentic Arabic jewelry, Islamic art, and traditional costumes.
  • The Floating Mosque: This single-domed architectural marvel that literally sits above the sea symbolizes Jeddah's bold irruption into the modern era. Located in an enviable location, the mosque's courtyard offers unobstructed views of the Red Sea.
  • Time for food. It will be held in an area where there are several options and you can choose what you prefer.
  • The Fountain of King Fahd: Also known as the Jeddah Fountain, it is the highest fountain of its kind in the world. The fountain was donated to the city of Jeddah by King Fahd, hence its name. It was built between 1980 and 1983 and commissioned in 1985. The fountain launches jets of water up to a maximum height of 260 meters. The second highest is the World Cup Fountain in Seoul (South Korea), with a water height of 202 m.
  • The Jeddah Corniche: Also known as Jeddah Waterfront, it is a coastal tourist area 30 km from the city of Jeddah. Located along the Red Sea, the cornice features a coastal road, recreational areas, pavilions and large-scale civic sculptures.
