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.

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.

This was a great trip for an introduction to Turkey. Our guide BB was excellent, being very knowledgeable and informative on culture and the history of Turkey. She was very patient with the group and had great ideas to maximise our time seeing so many fabulous sights which gave us a great experience.

Fabulous trip to Turkey. Our guide was exceptional. She was so knowledgeable. We felt comfortable enough to participate in all activities including hot air ballooning. I would definitely recommend this tour. Everything ran so smoothly.

Explore Jordan

Georgia · Traveled June 2024
I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with Intrepid. Booking my trip to Jordan was the best decision I’ve ever made - it was truly incredible! I don’t think there is anywhere quite like Jordan - if it’s not the stunning views and landscape you fall in love with, you cannot deny the genuine warmth and caring nature of the people of Jordan. If you are looking for your sign to book your trip, this is it.
