We had a GREAT time! Loved every minute!
Engaging Cultures does a terrific job in organizing unique tours for you. Because of Engaging Cultures, I had the opportunity to stay with a family in Orjan. It was wonderful and I adored the family. It was one of the highlights of my trip to Jordan. I look forward to returning. Jon and the team are terrific and they made the whole experience easy and wonderful. Great job!
This was by far one of the top three trips of my lifetime. Engaging Cultures was very laid back, flexible, organized, and knowledgeable. They kept us busy the whole time, but were completely willing to slow down and give us a chance to take it all in. They have a love for the country and the people. Their staff truly wanted this to be an amazing experience for all of us. You hear about Jordan, but until you’ve experienced it, you’re missing out. Camel rides, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea, Bedouin tents, dinner with a Bedouin family were all once in a lifetime experiences. Thanks EC. I would definitely use your company again.
Forget Petra, that hike was worth the airfare alone!
Thank you so much for everything. From the moment we stepped off the plane until we returned to the airport, everything was just perfect. Our time in Jordan far exceeded any expectations I had. Your meeting us at the airport personally with the gifts was so unexpected and delightful. As for Zaid, I can not say enough wonderful things about him. As I said to him when we were leaving, he was so much more than a tour guide, he was truly a teacher on so many levels. We had so many questions for Zaid and I know each day our time with him was extended because of that but his knowledge was so deep and we learned so much from him. He was also very patient with us and all of our questions! Having Zaid guiding us through Jordan was an experience we will never forget and we will be back, I have no doubt about that. We will tell everyone to come to Jordan, use engaging cultures and to request Zaid! I have to say, I really did not know what to expect of Jordan and our time there but the experience we had made it so very tough to leave and it was truly the highlight of the trip. I can definitely see why it is your second home.
It was Engaging Cultures’ little touches and unique insight that made our Jordan experience superior. I have lived in the Middle East as an expat for over a year now and this trip was my third to the Kingdom of Jordan. Despite all this, Engaging Cultures managed to dig up new treasures in my Arab world experience. Unforgettable!
Our trip across Jordan was beyond our expectations. We really felt like we saw so much more than your average tourist. The people, the cooking classes, the home stay, the camping, the hiking with Bedouins, sharing your development work, camel ride to the Monastery, Petra under the stars, tumbling down the sand dunes of Wadi Rum, and finding sand in my pockets when I arrived back home in NYC…thank you for the memories of a lifetime. The best part was the people!!!
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 made my trip to Jordan the most amazing trip of my life. Seeing Petra and spending time with locals was so much more than I imagined. One of the best weeks of my life. Incredible.
I would not come to Jordan any other way. This is the ONLY way to see Jordan!
We had a fantastic trip, and we really appreciated all of your help. You definitely went above and beyond the call of duty. The tour was great and we loved the added bonus of getting to know you better. I can tell that you really enjoy your work. You’re doing a great job!
As Travel-study Director, I have arranged study tour for students and friends of our graduate school for over 20 years. Last March, I worked with Mr. Cater on our first study tour to Tunisia. The program that he arranged for my group was exceptional. He more than met my expectations in all details. He arranged accommodations in the nicest places on a fixed budget and worked seamlessly with the requests of our professor of record for this tour. Beyond the usual assets of land agents with whom I have worked in many countries around the world, Mr. Cater went out of his way to creatively suggest sites which I would not have known about but which fit perfectly into our program of study. Once we arrived in Tunisia, he attended to details at each stop, spoke the language and was helpful in every way.
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!
It was amazing to not only learn about the impact early North Africa Christianity but to be right there where key events took place. As we toured the different historical, religious and cutlural sites, the professor helped to bring those events to life with his vast knowledge and his kindness and ability to answer our many questions. It was a deeply moving experience!
Tunisia is the hidden jewel of North Africa and Engaging Cultures brings that country’s many delightful facets into bold relief with their well-planned and expertly executed tour package.
