Famous the world over for their Bedouin ethic of hospitality, Jordan is a gem of the middle east that delights and surprises. Jordan offers the traveler a piece of living history that they can walk through and experience. While the evidence of Jordan's colorful history tantalizes the traveler, it is closer to you than you would think if the only images you have seen of Jordan are in films.

" Undercover Tourist "


You’ve heard the expression “fly on the wall.” Well, what would it be like to be a fly on the wall in Cairo, or Morocco, or Jordan? You’d dress in the manner of locals, in a flowing robe. Ladies, we’d help you apply some henna to your hands, and lend you a scarf. Do you have some leather sandals? Put them on! Though running shoes will do in a pinch as local gear

Then it’s off for a walk to a market. Pretty soon, you’ll adjust your gait to your clothing, and shuffle rather than stride. You’ll pick up cues from those all around you. Leave the backpack at your hotel . we’ll hand you a straw basket or cloth bag in which to carry your purchases.

Will you be taken for a local, offered the prices that natives pay, be able to enter unobtrusively and unobserved? Well, let’s just say that you won’t stand out like a tourist in shorts and a Hawaiian shirt with red face and arms bared. You’ll go farther into the local ways than you would have otherwise. When you sit down for a cup of tea with a merchant, you’ll fell more genuinely part of the experience, and bargaining for the best price of a work of art, a rug or a homely teapot will come that much more easily. And just as you learn about different cultures through their food and language and manners, you’ll surprise yourself at how far you get and what you pick up by dressing up in the local manner.

And most of all, it’s fun! We’ll lend you everything you need for a half-day outing. Chances are, you’ll want to buy a robe yourself and set out again on your own. Please book at the time your reserve your tour with us.

Hi Omar,

As our wonderful trip in Egypt is coming to an end I would like to give you some news on my experience so far.

It is amazing we have to worry about nothing. They anticipate everything in advance and are constantly checking with us to see if we need anything more.
They have changed the itinerary when we were too tired and needed down time. They adapted ther style of guiding to suit us. The team is wonderful. There are a few people that stand out for us. Upon arrival we were placed in the wonderful hands of Mohammed Mamdouh, who by the way is from Alexandria. He made all the difference for us from the start of our trip.

We were also invited to his family's place for supper. His cousin Kheida and her sons Tawfik and Mohanet where amazing. They spoilt us like crazy. We really felt honored to be a part of their family for that one night. The kids were also so great that I felt I was with my own nephews. Hedra in Aswan is a young man who is wise beyond his years. We spent two days with him and were sad to let him go. Ashraf is an amazing guide - I have learnt so much from him. I felt I had a brother in Egypt. We laughed so much we didn`t stop laughing and learning about the beauty of Egypt for three days. He took us to Om Kalssoom cafe a typical place for Shisha that was not touristic and we spent time there like old friends. Words are not enough to tell you how much Michael and I got attached to him. Soha our tour guide in Cairo has amazing knowledge. She makes history come alive and watches out for us like a mother over her children. All our drivers where fantastic - my two favorites are the ones in Luxor and on our second trip to Cairo after Luxor - I think his name is Assam - he looked out for us as if he was Horus our protector.

Thank you so much, Omar, for putting these beautiful people in our path through Egypt. It is making my visit back to my homeland extra special.

Anne-Marie
