Middle East tailor-made holidays
The Middle East appeals to the adventurous, discerning traveller as one of the most rewarding places to spend time. Home to some of the world's most significant civilisations and great religions, the region resonates with history and culture.
Mythical modern cities sit alongside ancient sites of enormous importance including Persepolis in Iran and Petra in Jordan. Elsewhere, the minarets and mosaics of centres such as Esfahan in Iran mark the passage of centuries, the souks continue to bustle and Beirut in Lebanon and Dubai showcase a modern sophistication that is slowly sweeping the region.
Away from the cities, vast swathes of empty desert and shifting dunes in Oman or the UAE border the underwater world of the Red Sea, ensuring that there are plenty of activity and adventure holiday options here and natural wonders to explore as well.
