Great Day Tour in the Aseer Region, including Abha and Rijal Almaa. Osama was a great guide, very accommodating, and showed me around the local hotspots and many more. Definitely coming back to explore more of the region with Osama. Highly recommended.
Amazing tour, a must do if you are in Abha!

Trip to Rijal Almaa was the absolute highlight of our Abha tour. Great communication from Osama who accommodated our request at a time that suited us. Ibrahim took us to Rijal and he was very enthusiastic in showing us many things along the way, super calm and patient with my kids' endless questions. He had a great safe driving style and gave us fantastic food recommendations too. We really had a lovely tour, would recommend this trip to anyone. Kudos to both Osama and Ibrahim, you guys have been absolutely fantastic!
Great guide

We had a lovely trip. I came with my wife and two daughters and got to explore the heritage village whilst also taking a detour and learning about Abha, what we always considered the village. We got to see all the sights and enjoyed great food. Osama is very patient and flexible and doesn't make you feel rushed. When planning a trip to Abha definitely book this tour.
Magical tour

Highly recommend

Thank you Osama !
