    10,000 Minutes of Morocco

    Countries visited: Morocco
    Morocco in 8 days? Oh yes you Moroc-can. Do your best Bogart impression in Casablanca, then train it to Meknes and do your best Roman soldier impression in Volubilis. The medinas of Fes and Marrakech could well be the world...

    Tea, Sea & Tagines

    Countries visited: Morocco
    Like the name says, when you've had your fill of mint tea and tagines, it's time to head for the sea for some well-earned R'n'R. Culture-vultures can absorb as much as they like in Fes and Marrakech, but it's...
  • 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.

    I had the most incredible trip! Our guide was phenomenal and made the trip that little bit better than it already was! Would definitely go again and highly recommend it to anyone who is remotely interested in what Jordan has to offer

    My Camel Humps

    Our my camel humps trip was much more than I ever expected. At first I was unsure as to how smoothly this trip would go but from the very first day the trip was excellent. The trip contained a vast variety of activities and sights to see and most importantly showed us the culture of egypt. Despite the generalised opinion of how egypt can be chaotic this trip showed me all the beautiful parts of this busy country. I believe that egypt is under advertised to travellers and that it should be promoted to the young travellers especially due to its cheap economy.
