  • 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 tour included a bunch of great sites and took us from the top of Egypt all the way to the bottom - I couldn't have asked for more.

    Brilliant tour overall, I highly recommend it to all my friends, colleagues & family. Just the right balance of 'roughing it' and 5-star experience, and good contact with the Egyptian population via felucca ride, donkey ride, caleche, sleeper... It delivered so much more than I had bargained for, thank you very much!!

    Tour leader was fantastic, good sense of humour and knowledgeable. Overall tour was great, somewhat constricted due to uncontrollable circumstances- the revolution. Great short trip to see all the essential bits with local touches thrown in. Though was not fully aware of the cost of some activities prior to the tour and skewed budget a bit. Small detail though, had a great time overall!
