Some of our favourites are the age-old pyramids of Giza, Temples of Abu Simbel, the lost city of Petra, the rose-red expanse of the Wadi Rum desert in Jordan, the holy sites of Israel and the rolling dunes of the Sahara in Morocco. And there's plenty more too. To help you start planning that dream holiday, we have picked out some of our recommended hotels and also suggested a number of itineraries in Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Morocco. Combining Egypt, Jordan or Israel in one holiday is a fairly popular choice too given the proximity of these countries to one another.

This was an amazing trip of a lifetime. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone! The tour was well paced and very well-organized. I felt very safe at all times. Momo and all the other guides were incredibly informative, fun and great to be around. Momo brought out a vibe that really got all of us to know each other so well which allowed for an even better time making new friends. ”

This was an amazing tour, and I'm glad I went. We covered a great deal in 9 days; I only wish that my personal schedule had allowed for an extra day in Cairo. It needs to be said that Momo was instrumental in making this a good experience for me, and for the other members of our group. He loves his country and he really cares about presenting knowledge in an accessible and fun way, without diluting any of it. It helped that he would allude to stories and sites that we had visited throughout the tour, so there was a cumulative effect. Add to that his genuine kindness; on more than one occasion, he reached into his own pocket to make sure the group was comfortable and well-fed. I don't know that he understood how much I appreciated his enthusiasm, since I'm a relatively quiet person who doesn't necessarily seek out group experiences, but he made it more than bearable. I am not surprised that he won Global Guide of the year. ”

This was a fantastic tour. Everything I've wanted to see since childhood and more. The best part of the tour was our guide Waleed. He gave us much needed advice on how to deal with awkward situations, but most of all, his knowledge of the Pharaonic period is unequaled. If anyone is planning this trip, I'd advise them to find out if Waleed is leading it. If so, do it!.”
