We had a three day tour in Jordan with our guide Zaid back in 2013, and it was fantastic. Not only did we enjoy some of the top experiences the country has to offer - Wadi Rum, Petra, the Dead Sea, Gerash - but we learned so much about the local culture and customs. We even had tea in the Bedouin home of our driver in the Wadi Rum It was truly and eye opening experience all the way around.

We had a 3 day tour into the southern part of Tunisia with our knowledgeable and sensitive tour guide, Mohammed. We saw many beautiful sights, learning the secret of the wealth of the Sahara desert, experienced home cooked breakfast complete with real stone baked bread, organic raw honey, olive oil and sweet mint tea inside a unique cave home in the dessert. We also visited the site of the Star Wars movie and an ancient granary village. Not to mention dessert hot springs and oasis!! Tunisia holds many beautiful sites to treasure!

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

Go home with a story that no-one else has, and a real understanding of local life in some of these stunning parts of the world.
