Lebanon/ Beirut (03 Nights / 04 Days)
If you’re looking for the real East-meets-West so talked about in the Middle East, you need look no further than Beirut.
Fast-paced, fashion-conscious and overwhelmingly friendly, it's not a relaxing city to spend time in – it's too crowded,
polluted and chaotic for that – but its magnificent array of museums, restaurants, bars and clubs make it an essential
stop on every Lebanese itinerary. In fact, the country is so small, and day trips to every city and major site so easy,
that most travellers tend to base themselves here for their entire visit.
Beirut is Lebanon's seat of government and plays a central role in the Lebanese economy, with many banks and corporations
based in its Central District, Hamra Street, Rue Verdun and Ashrafieh. Following the destructive Lebanese Civil War,
Beirut's cultural landscape underwent major reconstruction. Identified and graded for accountancy, advertising, banking/finance and law, Beirut is ranked as a Beta World City by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network
In May 2015, Beirut was officially recognized as one of the New7Wonders Cities together with Vigan, Doha, Durban,
Havana, Kuala Lumpur, and La Paz.
Morocco Tour (07 Nights / 08 Days)
Morocco is one of the most diverse countries in Africa, with high mountains, sweeping desert, rugged coastline, and the winding alleyways of ancient medina cities and souqs.
Mountains & Desert
From Saharan dunes to the peaks of the High Atlas, Morocco could have been tailor-made for travellers. Lyrical landscapes carpet this sublime slice of North Africa like the richly coloured and patterned rugs you’ll lust after in local cooperatives. The mountains – not just the famous High Atlas but also the Rif and suntanned ranges leading to Saharan oases – offer simple, breathtaking pleasures: night skies glistening in the thin air, and views over a fluffy cloudbank from the Tizi n’Test pass. On lower ground, there are rugged coastlines, waterfalls and caves in forested hills, and the mighty desert.
The varied terrain may inform your dreams, but it shapes the very lives of Morocco’s Berbers, Arabs and Saharawis. Despite encroaching modernity, with motorways joining mosques and kasbahs as man-made features of the landscape, Moroccan people remain closely connected to the environment. The nomadic southern ‘Blue Men’ brave the desert’s burning expanses in robes and turbans, with mobile phones in hand. Likewise, traditional life continues – with tweaks – in the techniques of Berber carpet makers, in date cooperatives, in medina spice trading, and in the lifestyles in mountain hamlets and ports like Essaouira
Often exotic, sometimes overwhelming and always unexpected, these ancient centres are bursting with Maghrebi mystique and madness: the perfect complement to the serene countryside. When you hit town and join the crowds, you follow a fine tradition of nomads and traders stretching back centuries. Unesco has bestowed World Heritage status on the Fez medina, the world’s largest living medieval Islamic city, and on the carnivalesque street-theatre of the Djemaa el-Fna in Marrakesh.
Tunisia Tour (05 Nights, 06 Days)
Hammamet (03Nights), Tunis (02 Nights)
Hammamet : The first tourist destination in Tunisia
Hammamet is a town in Tunisia. Thanks to its beaches it is a popular destination for swimming and water sports. It is the first
tourist destination in Tunisia. It is located in the south east of the northern peninsula of Cap Bon in the Governorate of Nabeul,
on the northern edge of the Gulf of Hammamet.
Tunis: Maghrebi, Mediterranean and European
Tunis is at once complex, hybrid and cosmopolitan, yet remains curiously provincial, charmingly stuck in time.
The laid-back capital of Tunis also has two distinct urban-planning personalities. The new city, created by French colonials in
the 19th century, is an orderly European grid, with wrought-iron balconies, cafes and patisseries bordering the boulevards.
Its main drag, palm-lined ave Habib Bourguiba, is prime territory for promenading, coffee drinking, gossiping and idly watching
the passing human traffic. The 8th-century, quintessentially Arab medina is the city’s historic and symbolic heart. Here you enter
a tangled maze of narrow streets with giant keyhole-shaped doors, scattering cats, artisans’ workshops and swarming souqs.
All lanes, however twisted, eventually lead to the Great Mosque.
