A Billion Shades of Sand

Really enjoyed this trip. I was travelling on my own and everyone on the tour was really friendly, I felt really at ease and enjoyed every minute of it. The tour guides were really knowledgeable on everything and I felt that I didn't have to worry about a thing. The food was of a much higher standard than I expected and so were the hotels. I am looking forward to doing my next Gecko's trip to South America and Antarctia!

Welcome to Jordan

Travel to Jordan to see the Middle East’s quiet achiever hard at work. Small in size but not in stature, the Kingdom of Jordan is enjoying a renaissance of late, so it would be a wise move to check out what all the fuss is about.

On a Geckos tour of Jordan you’ll get to channel your inner Indiana Jones at Petra, dune bash through the Wadi Rum desert, experience extreme saltiness at the Dead Sea, enjoy a night off the grid at a Bedouin desert camp, pretend to be an archaeologist at the Roman ruins of Jerash, and see the old meet the new in up-and-coming Amman.

Oh, and since Jordan regularly throws up white-hot, scorching temperatures, you’ll get to sweat too.

With deserts that go on forever and cities built on the back of centuries of trade, labour and tradition, a trip to Jordan is the ultimate rut-breaker for active travellers seeking to interrupt their lives with a potent dose of mysterious Middle Eastern magic (and a face-melting blast of desert air).

Amman’s buildings seemingly follow uniform construction protocols, so it’s a good idea to pack a map and pay attention to where you’re going while navigating through a sea of rocky, grey same-same-but-just-a-little-bit-different buildings ... Read more on the blog

Middle East & North Africa

Exotic, atmospheric and other worldly, the Middle East and North Africa are dream destinations for travellers looking for a good dose of different: the endless alleys and lanes of medinas in Morocco; the unique blend of religious history and iconic sights in Israel; the ancient monuments and relaxing waters of the Red Sea in Egypt; the souks of Aleppo in Syria; the hidden jewels of Petra and the Dead Sea in Jordan; the ancient roman ruins in Libya; the underground ‘Star Wars’ houses in Tunisia; and the strange formations and carved churches of Cappadocia in Turkey.

With amazing natural landscapes, camel treks and even camping under the Saharan stars, your Arabian adventure will have you enchanted and entranced from deep desert to Mediterranean coast.
