Description of Family vacation to Jordan and Egypt
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
We believe that travel is for everyone. This is a really core principle for us and we passionately believe that where there’s a will there’s a way. We take all ages and all levels of fitness and we do everything possible to ensure that our tours are accessible for everyone, irrespective of physical ability or cognitive conditions. In our experience, there is almost always a way of making a tour suitable for everyone. It’s conceivable that there may be some situations that we can’t accommodate but we haven’t come across them yet!
Everything that we do is tailor made so if we have guests with limited mobility, for example, we will tailor the programme to take this into account, and will suggest hotels which will suit. Just let us know what your requirements are and we can talk you through the options
In most of our destinations, it is not possible to arrange a special vehicle adapted for wheelchairs, but we are able to arrange a large vehicle which will have ample storage for a wheelchair. Some hotels have wheelchair access; these may be few and far between but we can suggest where these might be possible. Where there is no wheel chair access, but not too many steps, hotel staff are always happy to help with lifting the wheel chair.
Blind/ limited vision:
All of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be able to provide necessary assistance to a traveler with limited vision. Information in braille is almost never available but local support can be provided, for example ensuring that porters are available to carry luggage in airports / train stations / hotels so that the travel partner is free to assist the person with limited vision.
As stated above, all of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be able to provide necessary assistance to a traveler with limited hearing.
We have experience in providing appropriate spaces for all travelers, whether this means hotels with access to outdoor space, ground floor rooms, quiet rooms and so on. As all of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be also be on hand to provide necessary one on one assistance to a traveler with cognitive conditions as required.
About this Free from food:
If guests have serious dietary issues (or allergies) we will arrange translations into the relevant local language(s) to explain these, and will brief guides to ensure that appropriate food is served.
The staff who are responsible for running our tours will always be LGBT friendly. Many of the destinations in which we operate do not offer equal rights to the LGBT community, and outward displays of affection may be problematic. We will be able to give advice on this on a country by country basis.

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOur tours in Jordan and Egypt are run in conjunction with local partners that share our environmental goals and commitment to operate in a responsible manner.
There are many fragile eco-systems in Jordan and our guides and drivers provide advice on how to behave to ensure that any negative impact is prevented. For example, on our longer camel safaris we bring (dead) firewood with us so that we can have a campfire at night without trying to source wood locally. We also ensure that all waste is taken out of the desert at the end of an excursion (except in the case of toilet paper, which we advise clients to burn safely, ensuring that none remains).
In Egypt our felucca cruises are also conducted in a responsible manner. Rather than leaving toilet waste on the small beaches where we stop for the night, and which are used by local farmers, we carry a portable toilet with us. This means that all waste is taken with us (and transported on a separate felucca) and disposed of properly.
Our UK office is run as environmentally as possible. We operate a primarily paper free environment and do not produce brochures (which often leads to a lot of waste) but market our tours exclusively on the internet.
PeopleAll of our tours in Jordan and Egypt use local guides which is very important as it not only ensures that travelers are given a unique insight into the way of life and culture in the region but also ensures that tourist revenue is retained locally.
Whenever it is possible, we also try to use small locally-owned and family run hotels. These hotels not only provide a better experience for families but also tend to employ from the surrounding villages, ensuring that money is retained locally and spread throughout the area.
Where possible, hotels are selected that have been built and furnished using locally sourced materials.
As Jordan and Egypt are both Muslim countries it is important that correct advice is given on how to dress; our pre-tour literature covers this in detail, ensuring that travelers (particularly women) know what is appropriate. We also give advice on how to behave during Ramadan (if applicable given the time of year of travel).
