You need to wear your Makkah Tours ID card tag at all times starting from your departure from the US until your return. It is very important that you do so. This way any Makkah Tours representative can recognize you and assist you in any needs that you may require. The luggage tags are very valuable so the luggage can be identified throughout the trip.
We recommend that you do not take too much luggage (one suit case per person). Weather is very mild in Saudi Arabia during Hajj so take only comfortable and light clothes. More information can be found in Makkah Tours Check list, which will be sent to all pilgrims before departure to Saudi Arabia.
