  • 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.

    Traveling by train to Asawn was an experience. We suggest flying back to Cairo from Luxor. More time in Dahab would be great. Not sure about breakfast in Aswan, because of our different cultures but toast & cereal or fruit would do us fine . What a fantastic tour. Have recommend it to friends and family. A BIG thank you to Mohamed Adel our tour guide HE was AWESOME

    The tour took in everything that we wanted to see. The class of tour was more on the budget side but liveable. There is a lot of travel via bus and train so this tour is more for the traveller versus the tourist.

    Overall the trip was fantastic. It was a good pace, had some great inclusions, we had a great group, TL and driver and the hotels were really nice. I have made more specific comments below! The only small complaint I have is with the transfers to and from the airport. The arrival transfer did not pick me up initially. After waiting for about 30 mins, I asked a man at information to call the number and had to wait another 40 mins until the driver came back... It turned out I should have been on the bus with the Exodus group, if I had known this I would have gone with them initially as I watched them leave the airport. The departure transfer did not pick us up either, although our TL was excellent and organised a taxi and paid the driver as we had already paid.
