Africa And Middle East Tours

Africa and Middle East Tours

The cradle of civilisation where the three towering monotheistic religions were born - the Middle East offers a magnetic attraction for pilgrims and adventure-seekers alike and with one of our Middle East tours the region can be explored with ease.

Boasting the beautiful old town of Jerusalem as its centrepiece, Israel also features the sacred outcrop of Masada, the Dead Sea, the vibrant city of Tel Aviv and the Sea of Galilee where a certain carpenter’s son walked on water.

Across the Sinai in Egypt, experience the ancient legacy of the Pharaoh’s by exploring the Pyramids on the Giza Plateau, the Karnak Temple complex in Luxor and the artistic perfection painted on the tomb walls in the Valley of the Kings. A felucca boat trip down the Nile is a great way to witness river life first hand and admire the impressive temples dotted along the bank.

Mix up the pace with one of our Dubai tours in the United Arab Emirates where you can quite literally scale the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa before returning to sea level and lazing on a local beach.

Our Middle East tours are a great way to experience the best of the region. Call us now on 0877 40 5033 and chat with our experienced consultants today.
