The countries that comprise North Africa and the Mediterranean are host to an incredible wealth of culture, history, ancient structures, and awe-inspiring sites.
Experience North Africa and the Mediterranean:
In this region, where the three great continents of Africa, Asia, and Europe intersect, one can experience everything from the ancient Egyptian pyramids and Sphinx, to Jordan’s impressive city of Petra, Israel’s Wailing Wall and Masada, the Parthenon in Greece, Italy’s Roman Coliseum, and Turkey’s famous Blue Mosque in Istanbul. It was here that the stage was set for a large part of western civilization’s ancient history. Many of the world’s great empires fought over and passed through these lands, from the western reaches of the Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian Empires to the Golden Era of Egypt, the Grecian Empire of Alexander the Great, and the amazing power and scope of the Roman Empire. Later, the Crusades, Byzantine Empire, and Ottoman Empire added their marks to the area. The presence of and interactions between three major religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, also vividly affected the character and history of this area. And yet, while each country has its own distinct people and cultures, the entire region shares much in common. Come experience the ancient ruins, history, food, art, music, dance, and overall culture of this magnificent region; taking time to partake in modern experiences as well - such as Nile and Mediterranean Cruises, stays at luxury island resorts, therapeutic spa treatments on the Dead Sea, water-skiing, scuba diving, and more!
How Our North Africa and the Mediterranean Tours are Run
The Semi-Independent Small Group tour
We will work with you to design your ideal trip, organizing visits to the cities and sites that you want. We can arrange small group tours to the more “involved” locations (those requiring special attention due to the relative difficulty of getting there or the added value of having a guide explain the history and important facts of the site) as well as schedule free days as you desire for those sites that are perhaps best visited on your own. On the days that you travel with others you will typically be with 2 – 12 others, and we guarantee your tour and price even if you are the only ones on it. We can arrange your international flights, hotels, and transportation (including rental vehicles, trains, planes, buses, and transfers to and from the airports/hotels). We can also either arrange meals for you or provide you with excellent restaurant recommendations. In short, we can help you maximize your time and minimize the stress. These tours can be surprisingly moderate in cost.
The Private tour
We can arrange your entire trip according to your specifications, regardless of your group size. We can book your desired the level of hotels, arrange all transfers, organize tours with top level guides, and provide you with in-depth experiences in each city and at each site. For private groups traveling, we can organize your entire trip, providing you with a high level travel experience for a surprisingly moderate price.
