Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The place to go again and again . You go there once and will love to go again. Holy masque has changed a lot. Just people with Ehram can enter in ground floor . Allah Pak call us again.

Kaaba is beautiful place only marred by some of the people that visit and more important the poor behavior of the guards towards people who are not Arabs.
Have observed guards man handling individuals unnecessarily and are very condescending and arrogant while being ignorant at the same time. They treat people as with no respect and believe they can treat visitors how they want.
On reflection they earn 8/hr so probably quality of staff and training is probably an indicator.
A very disturbing experience

El Masjed El Haram, Kaaba, is the most peaceful place on earth

All the visitors feel equally in front of the holy Kaaba while performing Omra.

The terrible and unnecessary behavior of the security at the second floor of kaaba/makkah is unbelievable. My mom, she is over 75 years old, is on a wheel chair. My brother was pushing the wheel chair to the kaaba second floor, they had done nothing wrong and were minding their business doing Tawaf. The stupid, nasty, and disrespectful security guard, who has no respect for old people. He pushed my mom so hard for nonreson it was disturbing and hard to watch. She had almost fallen out of her wheel chair, so my brother went to file a complaint, and all the other security guards looked like they were friends with each other, one of them had said, " let's go I'm going to talk to him." But, when they went there, he was no where to be seen. It had looked like someone had called him before my brother went with the other officers. He had asked my brother if he knew the name and my brother said no saying he didn't have a chance to look at his name tag. But we will never forget how hard he had pushed my mother, it was disturbing and hard to watch as things could've gone terribly wrong. Now you can see from my experience, how terrible the security is and how they can ruin your whole experience and leave you stunned.

The holy place for every Muslim to visit once in their lifetime. The first sight of the Kaaba brings tears of joy from your eyes. The feeling is very calm and breathtaking with lots of peace and satisfaction. The weather was extremely hot but endure it for Allah. Met many people from different countries and they all were very nice. Only issue.....the security needs to learn English. No decent communication, I only see them chasing or hear them shouting at the pilgrims. Have a standard rules, regulations & restriction which will be easier for pilgrims to follow. Not a nice scenes to witness at the Holy place. Alhamdulillah, I already done 2 Umrah and intend to perform one more in January 2024....after which will be looking forward for Hajj with my hubby, inshallah

This was my first experience to Kaaba / Makkah with disabled child age 8. Electric scooter provided by Masjid Al Haram authorities on the third floor made it easy to do tawaf and saee with child. The child was completely disabled. The Electric scooter/wheelchair is completely free for the disable person & carer. But rented for normal person with reasonable price. Double and single seat scooter are available. I decided to use the double seat and I hold the child at the same time drive the scooter. Its easy to drive. You can take the partner or assistance aswell. The staff can look after your own special chair and belonging in room, and you can take it back when you finished.
There are wheelchair friendly entrance ramps from outside Masjid Al Haram which take you straight to rental point.
Or you may ask the security/cleaning staff for the scooter hiring point.
Ouside Masjid Al Haram I found it a bit difficult to go around with disable child in her own wheelchair due to lake of wheelchair/ramp accessable vehicle. But still to keep my visit live& healthy I have hired several times 7-8 seater taxi or local drivers, in which the driver folded the back seats and we had to pick up the child inside the wheelchair to put it at the back of the car. which were obviously not comfortable at all. As the height of wheelchair and the car roof just 3-4 inches. 🥲
As my child is completely wheelchair bound, and has her own orthopedic approved wheelchair, So i can not use other chair. when we disembarked the plane in Jeddah the airport staff refused to give our chair at the plane door, as normally travelling rest of the world they make an arrangment of our own wheelchair at the plane step. But in Saudi Arabia the supervisor mentioned that Saudi’s customs rules are different from the rest of the world 🤔, After long typical worst style argument they agreed that i hold the child and sit on one of the aiport provided wheelchair which were so small, wasn’t comfortable at all. and their staff push the chair to take the metro to the exit/luggage area, where i found my own wheelchair.
But overall the trip was good.

Before going I searched and found the detailed review on tripadvisor from

Umrah : Tawaf and Saee with partial physically disabled parents
