Middle East Travel
Persian romance. Exotic spices. Hanging gardens. Our Middle East tours will show you the best of this region, from finest mosaics in Isfahan to the tastiest hummus in Palestine.
This part of the world isn’t lacking in culture. Its bustling bazaars – filled with thriving tea shops, enthusiastic carpet salesman and souks – but Britain’s pannier markets to shame.
Its no surprise that foreign travellers have been enchanted by the middle east since day dot. Alexander the Great set the trend – and the literary minds of Byron and Roald Dahl have followed.
Is the Middle East safe to visit?
Yes. In this part of the world, Persian hospitality still stands strong. The Middle East will give you the warmest of welcomes and introduce you to very different way of life.
In fact, we could learn a lot from this region – the Middle East’s generous attitude towards visitors puts many western countries to shame.
On our Middle East tours, we only visit countries (and the parts of them) that are safe to visit. Vast portions of Palestine, Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan are ready and waiting for tourism. We see it as our job to show them to you before everybody else does.
