    Hi, first do you have a visa for Saudi- as you write you are going to Riyadh - usualy the only way to get in is with a visa to travel with a tour group or a work visa
    As a single woman I am surprised that you would be given one - since you do need a male with you when traveling around the country and aso when going out in public or even another female As a single female you can't walk around on our own. The only place that you can do that is in Jeddah Saudi.
