About The Middle East & North Africa
- If you think Casablanca is the best film ever made and you have an unexplainable interest in mummification, then grab a camel and hot foot it over to your new favourite region.
- Whether you wanna get lost in the souqs of Aleppo, float in Jordan’s Dead Sea or pretend you’re Luke Skywalker in Tunisia, this exotic region will surprise, delight and leave a traveller wanting more.
- So jump on a Geckos Middle East or North Africa trip and lose yourself to Moroccan medinas, sleep under Saharan stars, explore Egypt’s pyramids, discover the hidden jewels of Petra, and kickstart your Arabian adventure asap.
- Stone pillows anyone?
Ancient Egyptians used to sleep on pillows made out of stone. Sort of defeats the purpose.
- Sweet & naked:
Pharoah Pepi II would smear his naked slaves with honey to keep the flies away from him.
- Good parenting:
Jordanians believe that excessive praise of children brings bad luck (if all parents felt this way we’d never have to put up with shoes like X Factor).
- A card, flowers and…coastline?
Marc Antony gave Cleopatra part of Turkey’s southwestern shore as a wedding gift. So consider your own souvenirs very carefully.
- Doing it right:
The glue on Israeli stamps is kosher.

Loved my tour with Geckos. Was a great way to see the country and the real people. Was great with a small group as more personal and our guide was always there to answer our questions and inform us of local history and interesting facts. Definitely planning my next holiday with Geckos.

As with all the tour I have done with Geckos this trip was amazing I had so much fun and learnt so much about Morocco, and can't wait until I can go back and see more. I think it would be a good idea to send out a confirmed itinerary to travels before departure as there were some things added to trip that we didn't know about until the day it happend and we didn't end up having a free day in Fez becuase of the changes.

Exceptional guide. Has a good knowledge of the history. Fitted in some extras which I think was paid out of the tip kitty. We encountered a problem with a purchase we made and e-mailed him afterwards, to which he responded probably in 5 minutes. A trip I would absolutely recommend.
