“I am so glad I did this holiday. I felt it was a risk booking as it would probably be cancelled or I might get exposed to Covid but I didn't and it was a wonderful week with great people. It meant I could face this second lockdown with greater equanimity. ”

Stewart's review for another Explore tour
“Flights were a bit expensive, but it was useful that you booked them for us. Office staff helpful with enquiries. Helpful to be met at the airport, especially when it was quite late at night. Felt like a good balance of culture and history, and being active. Great experience overall, good intro to the middle east. ”
