Middle East Tours & Vacations

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 civilizations, 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.

Turkey Highlights

James · Traveled May 2024
As a solo traveler this was a perfect way to see most of Turkey. I have a couple of places I may come and revisit and plenty to recommend to friends coming this way. A good group will always make it work out with a fantastic guide. There was a bit of free time to see things for yourself or relax but pretty busy overall. I recommend this for anyone interested in visiting Turkey.

Egypt Adventure

Amarjit · Traveled May 2024
Exceptional guide, this adventure was packed with great local food, a day and night on a felucca boat: smooth sailing and no mosquito bites at all! Nets and spray kept them away from entire group. Recommend this trip for anyone looking to experience the real Eygpt and learn the history through a local guide.
