  8. is the Sahara Expatriate Tour any good? And do I need to bring a male companion? I'm new in Riyadh and was hoping I could find a tour that involves most of the stuff mentioned above.

If Anita or anyone has any info on this particular tour or any other fun Riyadh activity worth mentioning please please pleeease email me at I'm suicidally bored.

  9. heloo there,

    most of the information above are not updated , Sahara is no longer to provide such services . check this company, Jawlah Tours they provide tours around the kingdom

  10. Hi,

    The best way to go to the desert and spend some time is to go with a 4X4 that you drive yourself. PLEASE DO NOT go on your own. Join a group of expats that have experience in this part of the world. I think you will find that there are at least one group out in the desert every weekend. You have to determine if you like the sand or the rocky desert and what it is exactly that you would want to do before you go. You would need some camping gear (it is very cheap in Riyadh).

    Going with a company will take away most of the fun. Talk to the people in your Compound that you can see drives a 4X4 if you have no friends doing this.

    Hope this helps

  12. I am ROSE SMITH from CANADA a single parent, before my husband died
    he left us with so much DEBT that we could not cope with life, I was
    totally confused on what to do. When I was going through the internet
    I came across a POST by MARCUS CAFE about how Mrs JULIA NAVARO help
    him to get a loan so I applied for the loan from JULIA NAVARO through
    her mail ( of $200,000 with a duration of
    10 years.When I was applying for the loan I made a vow to GOD that if
    I get the loan I will let the world know what she did for me, to my
    greatest surprise my loan was granted with an interest of 2%. I was
    able to settle my debt and start up a new life and business with a
    settled family. So if you want any type of loan in any part of the
    world for as low as 2% please contact JULIA NAVARO on her mail or her phone number +16618356153.
    I just fulfilled my vow.
