More About Middle East
Middle East Tours by Adventures Abroad: Considered the cradle of civilizations, ancient empires and cultures have resided in the Middle East for thousands of years. Within the complicated weaving of history lies a region which holds some of the world's most incredible archeology sites as well as futuristic cities that wow with daring architectural projects. Middle East tours offer a chance to explore the new, the old, and the magnificent.
For some, the allure of a history that comes alive is too hard to resist. Ever since the Sumerians flourished in Mesopotamia or the Archeamids in Persian Iran, intriguing cultures have swept across the sandy landscapes throughout the Persian and Arabian Gulf. Many of the world's oldest religions have their holiest cities rest within this region, along with many ancient cultural centres that are unrivaled in the world.
Egypt as a destination is a place that awes all who explore it. With our Middle East tours, we walk among the shadows of the Great Pyramids at Giza, marvel at the 1500 year old Karnak Temple, journey through the Valleys of Kings and Queens, and enjoy donkey and camel rides. Nearby in Jordan, one becomes speechless as they stand before the Treasury at Petra. Without a doubt, the Middle East is home to magnificent pillars of history from the Egyptian Pharaohs to the Roman Empire, with Jerash in Jordan proving to be one of the most magnificent Roman Empire ruins in the region.
Modern day marvels include much of the cities within the Arab Gulf States, with recent cash injections from oil and gas funding mega projects such as the recently opened museum and gallery filled island in Abu Dhabi housing the Louvre and Guggenheim's collections. Nearby is the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi's most iconic landmark, which features eighty-two white domes and classic Islamic designs.
Safely stroll the streets, with a knowledgeable local who infuses tours with information about cultural customs, relevant history, and personality while showing you their country. Each day we'll employ a fun way to discover our surroundings, whether on a dhow ship in the glassy waters of Oman, an open top jeep on the dune of Jordan's Wadi Rum, a camel trek to the San Simeon Monastery of Egypt, or up an elevator to as high as we can go in the Burj Khalifa, which is Dubai's and the world's highest building.
Our Middle East tours take the opportunity to taste authentic and regional food in local restaurants. Perhaps take a break with a date with tea in Oman, determine the location of the best hummus in Israel or Palestine, try the tabouleh salad in Jordan, or the fattoush salad in Dubai, the umm ali bread pudding in Egypt, and the shawarma or shish tawook meats whenever you can.
Our tours offer the ability to go off the beaten path while garnering an intimate look at some of the world's most famous landmarks. Rest assured you'll have the full support of an experienced tour leader, a local expert, and a company with over 25 years' experience in the region.
