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.

The horses in Edfu temple were in a poor condition, the change of itenarary to the Luxor temple at night was much better. A consideration should be made to make the tour a little more expensive to utilise better hotels. Other than that, everything was great, the adventure on the sleeper train was good fun, and the trip down the Nile on the cruise boat was exspecially good. The tour guide was the most pleasing aspect of the tour, his knowledge, willingness to help and provide alternative adventours along with his humour and plesent attitude really made the trip what it was.

would like to say that the guides mohmad & osama that did our trip in Egpty & Jordan were brillant their knowledge was very impressive. their help and guidance was very resuring as an australian travelling abroad. Mohmad was great in helping us when our son was not well. thanks again. the only thing i would add is that geckos marketing department need to be more careful in the way they advertise the days included as part of the trip as meeting at 6pm on day 1 and the last day in jordan being dropped off at @2.00 in town with free time should also not be included as another of the tour. Thanks to our great guide.
