The safety of our travellers is of utmost importance and we stay up-to-date with the latest travel alerts and advice. In today's current world climate, travel advice does change from time to time and we act accordingly. As a British-based company, we follow the advice as set out by the British Foreign Office.
We will only cancel tours when the FCO advises 'against all travel' to a country. This rarely happens though at other times we may have to make changes to our itineraries to avoid specific areas of a country where advice against all travel has been issued. Please see our terms and conditions for more information on tour changes and cancellations.
All travel involves some risk and travellers should familiarise themselves with the latest travel advice for the country they are visiting and make a personal assessment as to whether the level of safety is satisfactory to them, prior to booking.
Certain destinations have seen more uncertainty than others in recent years and we have country-specific travel advice pages where appropriate. On these pages you will find more detailed information on the latest advisories and how these affect our tours.
Turkey's proximity to Syria affects the far east of the country but the rest of the country is open for tourism. Here you will find full details on travel advice in Turkey.
Egypt has been the victim of several security incidents in recent years but travellers are happily returning to the classic route of Egypt's ancient wonders.
Jordan's proximity to Syria is not cause for concern in the popular touring destinations but travel advice is in place for the border region - more details here.
