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 & Egypt Express

Ana Cristina · Traveled June 2024
I totally recommend this trip. Jordan is the most amazing country, and being my 6th trip with Intrepid, this was probably the one I think offers more value.

Six Days in Turkey

kerri · Traveled May 2024
This tour was incredible. 100% worth the money especially if you get the discount price but even the full price is worth it. Tour guide Beykan was absolutely incredible! really recommend this to anyone wanting to see turkey! Just be wary of the overnight bus as it was not for everyone!

Six Days in Turkey

Ashley · Traveled May 2024
This trip was the perfect introduction to Turkey. Our guide Beykan was also very knowledgeable and approachable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a nominal, authentic, and culturally driven tour to Turkey.

I wonderful trip through such a magnificent destination with so much culture and ancient history. It 100% changed any preconceived notions about Egypt and I would strongly recommend the trip to those who are not quite sure.

Premium Egypt

Steven · Traveled May 2024
GO TO EGYPT! As a bucket list item since I wrote essays about it in high school, my expectations were very very high. I was not disappointed! Incredible sights, warm people and Gouda was a prince among men as our guide. A++
