Some of our travelers have told us that their friends and family were concerned that they were traveling to the Middle East.

Unfortunately, the perception in the West is that the Middle East is dangerous and not safe for travelers.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  During the unrest in the region in the spring of 2011, Jon and Daniel of Engaging Cultures hitchhiked across Jordan to show travelers how safe it truly is.  You can read about what happened here.

We have Engaging Cultures representatives from the U.S. who live on site in Jordan and Tunisia.  If you want an up to the minute assessment of what it is like for travelers, do not hesitate to contact us.
