Over 5000 years of history
Few regions of the world can compare with the history of the Middle East. With spectacular sites such as the Pyramids, the lost city of Petra or the magnificent Roman ruins of Ephesus or Jerash, the Middle East has long been referred to as the cradle of civilization, but it's much more than that as well. Middle East travel offers the chance to discover spectacular arts and culture in a beautiful region where you could trek through the desert by camel, snorkel above the coral gardens of the Red Sea, cruise down the Nile and experience the famed hospitality of the Bedouin. A tour of the Middle East will give you an unparalleled insight into this fascinating and often misunderstood part of the world.
History is the big draw to this area of the world. All you have read about, watched on TV or ever learned at school comes to life when you see the sites with your own eyes ... the Pyramids and Mummies, Mt Sinai and Mt Nebo, Roman cities, Petra, Ephesus and many other world wonders will constantly amaze you. And there is so much more ... The vast desert scenery and oases, haggling in the bazaars, the River Nile, the Dead Sea, the Red Sea , the Atlas mountains and the world famous hospitality and welcome of the locals will keep you coming back again and again.
