Learn all about Riyadh on this self guided audio walking tour. This tour can last from about one hour, to as long as you’d like to spend. Go at your own pace, while you visit places like Al Masmak Fortress, Al Safat square, an old bookshop, Imam Turki Bin Abdullah Grand Mosque, and more. Buy some handicrafts on Al Thumairi Street, and finish at Ath Thumairi Gate, all the while hearing the history and stories of each place.
This is a great pick for independent travelers who are keen to explore Riyadh at their own pace, rather than following a group. Simply download an app to your phone, and then listen to audio commentary by a historian. There are two separate tours to enjoy: the first explores Al Masmak Fortress; and the second visits the historical areas of Riyadh, such as Al Safat Square.
Avoid being stuck on a large group tour, and make your visit to Al Masmak Fortress as stress-free as possible with this self-guided walking tour. Simply use your phone and headphones to access an audio tour, which conveniently syncs according to your location. Along the way, a historian’s commentary helps you learn plenty of fun facts and secret tales that you likely wouldn’t uncover if exploring alone.
