North Africa and Middle East Tours
Birthplace of several of the world's great religions and considered by many the cradle of civilization, the Middle East is a loosely defined area of incredible variety and dramatic contrasts. From secular, progressive Turkey to mysterious Yemen, the region's long history is on display at every turn, making the region an archaeologist or historian's dream. For centuries a political and religious hotbed, the Middle East luxhas been fought over since the time of Alexander the Great, and every twist of history has left its unique mark, from the varied, mouth-watering cuisine to architectural wonders second to none.
