Why travel with a Group?
Discover the benefits of group travel with our specially curated packages. Unlike a tailor-made or self-built package, our group packages offer you the best of both worlds. With the guidance and support of a group leader, you can enjoy a range of exciting activities alongside fellow travellers. But don't worry, we understand the importance of flexibility too. That's why our packages also include plenty of "days at leisure," giving you the freedom to spend quality time with your loved ones however you choose.
Rest assured that an experienced group leader will accompany you throughout your journey. With a wealth of knowledge about the local area, our group leader will be your go-to person for practical advice and recommendations on nearby amenities. In the unlikely event that any issues arise, the group leader will be there to promptly resolve them, ensuring that you can enjoy a hassle-free and unforgettable travel experience.
We understand that performing Umrah is a deeply spiritual and personal journey, which is why we provide the services of a qualified religious scholar to accompany our group packages. With a wealth of knowledge and expertise, the scholar will offer guidance on Umrah rites and recommended actions, and be available to answer any questions you may have. Whether you're a seasoned traveller or a first-time pilgrim, the scholar will enhance your spiritual experience and provide a deeper understanding of the religious significance of the places you visit. From running commentaries during tours to one-on-one advice, the religious scholar will be on hand to support you every step of the way.
