Happy tourist in a blue scarf - Tunisia tour

You’re unique…the way you travel should be too.

Don’t just take a tour. Travel deeper. Our lives have been changed, not by seeing sites, but by engaging with locals from the places we visit.

So we created Engaging Cultures to help others experience that kind of travel. When you join us on a tour, you can learn to cook authentic food, stay in local homes, and experience a side of Jordan & Tunisia that few tourists ever see.

You’re speakin’ my language… What do I do now?
 

Our clients come for the travel and stay for the connections.

We will make sure you have the trip of your life! See what others have said:

Our trip across Jordan was beyond our expectations…Engaging Cultures was enlightening, client-focused, practical, and responsive. We were able to do a lot and felt we got more of a taste of the real Jordan and not your typical tour company experience. I would travel with Engaging Cultures again and recommend this service to my friends. Keep up the great work. Thank you again.

Engaging Cultures gave us a simply unforgettable experience – our two nights staying at Camp Ammarin, and the camel trek and back hike into Petra were amazing. Meeting and getting to know the local people made all the difference – a million times more meaningful than staying in a hotel. We were comfortable, we felt safe, and we loved every minute!
Janice, from New Zealand
This tour is an opportunity of a lifetime to see Tunisia through the eyes of people who understand the vibrant cultural mix that is this exciting modern-day country. If you have only one stop to make in North Africa, make it Tunisia!

Rough Guides logo“Very unusual Jordan-based operation, offering the kind of insight and cultural immersion on touring itineraries that is generally extremely hard to find. Detailed knowledge of the whole country and great contacts among local communities means they can get you under the skin of the place quicker than just about anyone else, on a variety of broad general-interest trips and excursions.  A fine choice.” Rough Guides travel guidebook to Jordan
The Independent logo“Local operator Engaging Cultures offers the chance to approach Petra by camel.  After visits to a community project and a night at the Feynan Ecolodge, you stay at a bedouin camp before riding into the site on a little-used back route.  Three days from £220pp land-only, including accommodation, entry fees and transfers.”

“Engaging Cultures organized a private tour specific to what I wanted. I had searched and asked many tour companies in Jordan and Engaging Cultures was the only one able to accommodate my request… I would not have been able to do this on my own without Engaging Cultures. They are terrific and I cannot recommend them highly enough. It is worth every moment.”
