See the world with new eyes.
This is why we crafted the Jordan Insider tour.
Rob, a recent guest of ours in Jordan who has traveled to over 20 countries around the globe said “I can say without exaggeration that the week-long itinerary put together for my group by Engaging Cultures was among the best travel experiences of my life.
“We were able to experience the local culture from the best source possible: the Jordanian people. We shared meals with 5 different families and stayed overnight with one. My stereotypes about Middle Eastern people and their faith was shattered, and I came to love this country and its people.”
This is the reason we created Engaging Cultures Travel. It’s the heart of everything we do.
We are honored to be named in this prestigious list, but what thrills us most is that we have succeeded in creating a tour experience powerful enough to destroy long-held misunderstanding by facilitating encounters with people that forever change the way they see the world. (Not to mention breathtaking sites like Petra and Wadi Rum, exclusive camel treks, and once in a lifetime adventure.)
Norie Quintos, executive editor of National Geographic Traveler magazine said, “The selection process was competitive and our editorial team worked long and hard to find 2014’s most authentic, most innovative, most immersive, best-guided, and most sustainable tours. This year marks the 30th anniversary of National Geographic Traveler, which has always looked at the world through the lens of culture, nature, and history. The tours we selected go beyond destination to add meaning and context. They open the mind to new possibilities, new connections, new ways of thinking—all critically important given the world’s complex issues.”
We are proud to have our Jordan Insider tour named as one of 2014’s “50 Tours of a Lifetime”. What makes us excited to jump out of bed in the morning is that, thanks to National Geographic Traveler’s endorsement, more people will now have the opportunity to experience what Rob did.
