Can you provide the reference for this narration?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Tawaf around the Ka’bah is similar to Salah, except that you speak during Tawaf. Whoever speaks during Tawaf, let him speak nothing but good [i.e. dhikr or beneficial knowledge]”
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 960)
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) also mentions that this narration has also been reported as the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
