Middle East & North Africa Tours: Things to Do
Stay at a desert camp in Wadi RumOn the Jordan & Israel
Wanna experience an authentic slice of desert life? This one’s got your name on it! After weaving through the Wadi Rum dunes in a 4x4, we’ll roll into our Bedouin camp, gather round the fire and share a tasty dinner under the twinkling stars. Bonus: opt in to go all-out nomad with a camel ride. Yesss!
Visit the 'blue city' of ChefchaouenOn the Surf, Sand & Souks
Ever wondered why Chefchaouen has the nickname ‘the blue city’? Well, join us on one of our Morocco trips and wonder no more! This place gives Mykonos a run for its money when it comes to pretty blue-and-white houses and terracotta tiles. While you’re here, make sure to photograph your way through the medina – and don’t forget to check out the Kasbah’s lovely gardens.
See the Blue Mosque in IstanbulOn the Turkey Explored
When you're travelling Turkey, checking out the architectural legacy left behind by the mighty Ottoman Empire is a must. Step inside the 17th-century Blue Mosque, the shining icon of Istanbul, and you'll soon discover how it got its name (hint: it might have something to do with its 260 stained glass windows and 20,000 blue tiles).
Discover the 'Lost City' of PetraOn the Jordan Adventure
Chiselled from sheer cliffs of rose-red stone, the ‘Lost City’ of Petra is guaranteed to take your breath away. Step back in time as you wander through the famous Siq – and don’t forget to pinch yourself when you catch your first glimpse of the Treasury. Indiana Jones? He’s got nothing on you.
Visit pyramids, temples and tombs in EgyptOn the Nile Discovery
You've seen the pictures, you’ve heard the stories and you’ve watched the documentaries. Now, it’s your turn to see the mighty monuments of Egypt up close. From the majestic Great Pyramid of Giza to the Luxor Temple, get ready to crank up the wonder as you feast your eyes on these awesome ancient sights. Don’t forget your camera!
See the sights on a Dubai City TourOn the 4 Day Dubai Stopover
Spice markets, mosques and museums. The traditions of the United Arab Emirates still shine as bright as the jewels on show in the Gold Souk, and on our 4 Day Dubai Stopover, you'll see them all! But it's not all history here – there are plenty of man-made wonders to feast your eyes on too. Think: buildings that touch the sky, mega malls and indoor ski slopes. Nothing says 'billionaire' like snow in the desert, amirite?
