went on a 5* 3 week Hajj package with Hijaz Travel and here is my experience
Hijaz travel offered an all inclusive non shifting package and they were spot on to their word. We arrived at Jeddah Airport and got through customs and immigration within 45 minutes which was impressive as from my previouse experience and feed back from others this process takes about 6 hours but we were in our hotel within 4 hours of landing. This gave us time to freshen up and perform our Umra.
There were regular seminars throughout our journey and step by step guidance provided by Sheikh Mahmudul Hasan who was available for advice and guidance.
The accomadation Al Shahoda was 5 minutes away from Haram situated directly behind the clock tower very nice hotel.
Catering breakfast and dinner was included in the package but Hijaz travel provided complimentary lunch throughout our journey. The food was of the highest standard and I must say I have not seen as many fish dishes as I seen on this tour along with other continental dishes.
The staff were very friendly and approachable and I have made few new friends having spent time with them whilst they were assisting us.
All transfers and transport was sorted out by the Hijaz team and organised in a very professional way. The team even managed to get transport on transfers where on the package is was not included which was a bonus as the other option was a long walk back to Mina which would have taken over an hour. During our stay in Makkah Hijaz travel staff had done so much to make the journey enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
When we went to Madina our accomadation was again no more than minutes walk directly in front of the Masjid with excellent hotel accomadation at the Pulman Zam Zam.
Overall I would recommend Hijaz Travel as they have provided a service which they offered on paper and have exceeded that.
Well done to all involved May Allah reward your team.
Value for money
I was really impressed with the way Hijaz Travels was well organised.. They explained to us each step of the way how to perform our hajj properly… We had no problems.. and if we had a question it was answered to the full.. I would recommend Hijaz Travels to everyone.. and inshallah will use them again in the future god willing
We went on Hajj as a family this year. I was very nervous not knowing what to expect. We were put at ease even before we left with a seminar and all throughout the journey we had more seminars and guidance. The sheikh’s seminars were very informative and brother Maqsood was always available to answer any queries we had. The team professionally handled every situation and their meticculous attention to detail was commendable. I would like to thank everybody at Hijaz for the smooth running of all the activities and for helping to make our Hajj a memorable one.
Assalamolaikom. Thanks Hijaz for everything, because Hijaz given me excellent service.
Me, my wife, my sister and my autie went to Hajj this year with Hijaz Travels. This was our first Hajj and we were all so nervous as to how we could fulfill everything. Hijaz guided us through every step and Sheikh Mahmudul Hasan was such an inspiration who gave us step by step guide. The staff were so caring and kind especially brother Maqsood and brother Sunoth Gull. Sabir Bhai helped us all from Heathrow airport all the way through Hajj and made sure we all came back home safely. Tufayel Bhai is the manager and made sure everything and everyone was cared for. I can’t express how they all went out of there way to help every individual fulfill their dream journey. Me and my family pray for every single member of Hijaz Travels, May Allah reward them for all their hard work, Ameen.
Hajj Trip 2018
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Hijaz Travel. This was my first time that I was going to Hajj and Umrah. Hijaz made sure that everything went smoothly with no issues. We had seminars which where extremely helpful and informative and guided you through the different phases of Hajj and Umrah as well as being informed of all the travel arrangements. The team where always avalible and present and more then helpful to answer any questions or concerns that we had. I would not hesitate to recommend Hijaz Travel to any one who is thinking of going to Hajj or Umrah.
Can’t thank enough the Hijaz Management and the Saudi local team members for their excellent support and help during my hajj ! Hotel , food , hospitality , attention , pro active attitude – all were to my satisfaction. Special thanks and doa for the wonderful lunch they have served us every day even it wasn’t included in our package! May Allah bless my friends and brothers at Hijaz Travel , make them the best hajj service provider in the uk insha Allah. Last but not least , the presence and step by step guide from Sheikh Mahmudul Hasan has certainly contributed most behind my hajj e mabroor, I feel , Alhamdulillah ! May Allah give him long healthy life and lot more opportinities to share knowledge and extend support to many more brothers and sisters in the days to come. Aameen.
Hijaz travels Hajj 2018
My Husband and I traveled to Hajj this year, we went on the 11th August 2018, and returned on the 30th August 2018.
We stayed at Al-Shohada Hotel in Makkah, and Zam Zam Pullman In Madina. We had Shaikh Mahmudul Hassan with our group at all times, almost everyday we had seminars, and he explained all the activities of hajj according to Quran and Sunnah.
Alhamdulillah we are both extremely happy with their service.
Hajj August 2018
This was our first time doing both Hajj and Umrah and alhamdulillah it has been an amazing journey. Everyone at Hijaz worked so hard to make sure that everything went smoothly and so we were able to truly get the most out of our Hajj trip. The seminars were extremely helpful and well delivered, we would like to thank Sheikh Mahmudul Hasan for sharing his knowledge with us, answering the many questions that were asked and helping us to understand the true meaning of this journey. Brother Maksood, Tofeyyel and Selim did a wonderful job at organising the transfers and hotel arrangements, they were very patient and accommodating to our individual needs. Also, the Hijaz staff based in Saudi were brilliant and helped us out a lot. Overall, Hijaz definitely went beyond our expectations and we are eternally grateful to them for their hard work and dedication. May Allah SWT insha’Allah reward them all for their amazing effort. We look forward to travelling with Hijaz again insha’Allah!
Me and my mum went on our spiritual journey to Hajj with Hijaz travel based in Coventry Road, Birmingham. My mum is very elderly and Hijaz travel took this on board and made special measures for my mother so that she was able to make this journey with ease, they also took into consideration her dietary requirements. Going forward I would highly recommend them to all my family and friends and anyone who wishes to travel to Saudi
