Middle East Tours & Holidays

The Middle East is living, breathing proof of an old maxim: you don’t know, until you go. 

Forget the headlines and the hyperbole; this is the cradle of civilisations, an ancient land emerging as a modern power, with the money, culture and panache to back it up. Ride camels with Bedouin tribespeople across the dunes of the Sahara, haggle for gold in the souqs of downtown Amman, marvel at the Blue Mosque on a Turkey trip, cruise the Nile beneath the white sail of a felucca or float forever in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea. Wherever you go, three things will follow: the faint scent of cloves and camel, the echoing call to prayer and the smiles of people that call this place home.

Jordan Discovery

David · Traveled April 2024
Our guide brought knowledge and passion to our trip here in Jordan. We left with a truly great experience. Intrepid has the best guides and planning from the moment you get off the plane at your destination and throughout the entire trip. Completely stress free and enjoyable and the only thing you have to do is be amazed at the destination.
