Middle East

From the Graeco-Roman city of Jerash to the pyramids of Giza, the timeless landscapes of the Middle East evoke the power and glory of bygone civilizations. But this land of ancient roots and religions is hardly unchanging: the Arab Spring has opened a new, dynamic chapter in the story of the Middle East.

The multilayered magic of this region comes alive when exploring with etr, as we draw on two decades of student travel experience in the region to create safe but exciting travel experiences. In Egypt, your students can cruise up the Nile to learn about the cycles of flooding and drought that have indelibly shaped the culture of this land, or gaze at innumerable treasures in Cairo's outstanding Egyptian Museum. In Luxor, the temple of Karnak and the tombs of the West Bank offer evidence of the ancient's artistic achievements and splendor, something we take in after visiting a local school.

Dear Greg, It was a wonderful trip to Egypt and the kids truly enjoyed themselves. I still hear stories in the hallways. Obviously this experience has indeed enriched their lives. Thank you for organizing this trip for us and we will begin soon to plan for next year's trip. M.M., Philippines

In Jordan, we trace the route of ancient traders and pilgrims along the King's Highway, explore Crusader castles, ride horse back through to reach the siq, the narrow entrance to the site of the famous Treasury façadeof the rose city of Petra, learn the secrets of regional cuisine or discover Bedouin culture in the windswept desert of Wadi Rum. With etr's fully customized tours, the options are as endless as the horizon.

Whichever of our Middle East programs you choose, we custom design your itinerary to meet your specific requirements.
