The bus is a great way to see all of the sights around Medina. The details don't detail this clearly but the 1st meeting point is at the clocktower by the mosque. The only negative was having to wait for up to an hour at one stop even though it states they run every 30 minutes from every stop.

I recommend surtt if you come alone easy to access to find right in front of an nabawi a big one because you can't miss it lol the people are nice and there are some half hours and on time Al Hamdoulilah …. .

It was excellent. The stops were near the madina mosque outside the the gates.very close.a taxi drivers era dropped us off on one of our stops. It was amazing.my children all loved it

Clean frequent busses, friendly drivers, audio guide is interesting
