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!

We went on the Olive Harvest and brought our 2 daughters, ages 4.5 years and 2 years old. It was an amazing experience!! And our kids loved it too! Everything from picking the olives, to collecting them in a bucket, to the bread dipped in fresh pressed olive oil and zataar snack with tea, to preparing the olives and eating a freshly prepared Jordanian meal, we all enjoyed our time! We have prepared the olives at our home and are waiting for them to ripen so we can enjoy them again!

Stride Review

Engaging Cultures Travel specializes in organizing trips to Jordan and Tunisia. 

 

What Makes Them Stand Out?

 

“Forget the Tourist Fluff” is Engaging Cultures’ motto. Engaging Cultures Travel offer exclusive experiences that give their guests insider perspectives and are customized to meet traveler needs. Engaging Cultures Travel is a socially conscious tour operator who strive to bring people of different cultures and backgrounds together through unique travel experiences. 

 

Who Travels With Them?

 

Those looking to experience the heart of the middle east, dig deeper than the standard tourist itineraries and get off the beaten path, and those looking to understand and experience the wonderful culture. Love food? There’s a tour focused on cooking experiences, or one where you get to play a part in the local olive harvest. Or is Eco Travel more your thing? Jordan Eco Tour, staying in sustainable accommodations along your way is just the thing. Or if none of the tours already listed is quite right, Engaging Cultures Travel will customize a trip for you that is.

Where Do They Operate?

They specialize in the Middle East - specifically they run tours in Jordan, Tunisia, Palestine and Israel.

Why Travel With Them?

Engaging Cultures Travel is all about traveling deeper - forming a real connection with a place and its’ people, rather than simply ‘checking a place off a list’. Instead of the usual hotel and restaurant accommodations, Engaging Cultures Travel arranges home-stays, cooking classes, and tours with the locals to fully immerse travelers in local customs and traditions. 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.
