welcome my friend
the easiest way to reach mecca
by buying a tickit to JEDDAH & when U arrive
U have two options :
1- U take a taxi to mecca from the airport
it's 1 hour drive maximum or 30min minimum

2- U can take a bus by checking UR agency if
they have a regular bus line to mecca

i feel the better for U to choose number 1
coz it's easiest & U will avoid any delays waiting for
another people to show up & it will cost U about
200 Saudi Riyals thats around 54 U.S.Dollars

i hope U got the informayion UR looking for

Good evening! You may also want to fly intio riyadh and then take a bus to mecca. this is the most common way but the suggestion regarding going to jeddah may be the most convenient.
As abdelrahman said :)
And i prefer That u take a taxi its more comfortable
Assalamu Allaykom dear brother,

In my opinion, the easiest way to reach Maaka is taking a taxi from King AbdulAziz Airport ( in Jeddah ).

p.s.
be carefull sometimes taxi drivers charge high prices for tourists, as it happens everywhere around the world.
Hi there.
but first you need to get your visa from a known Omra & Haj Agency in your area.
this agency should help you with the travel arrangements and the hotel booking here.
unless you are coming for business and want to do Omra a well. in that case, if you are in Jeddah you can take a taxi as advised. I usually pay 100 - 120 Riyals for the ride to Al Haram (in the seasons that would be doubled)
if you are in Riyadh depending on how much you can spend you can take a plane to Jeddah and then a taxi or you can take a bus to Mecca directly from Al Azeziyah bus station.

I hope that was helpful
regards,
Eyad
