    There are so many reasons to visit this country – there is so much to see and do. Even though it is a relatively small
 it packs a lot of punch for the travellers. The indigenous and
 colonial history is fascinating. The food is fabulous. The scenery is spectacular. Plus, the abundance of wildlife — one of the draw-cards for travellers — will take you by surprise. It’s no wonder that in 2013, Lonely Planet rated it the ”hottest travel destination on the planet”, and they didn’t mean the weather!

    If it’s history, food and unique culture you’re after, these two destinations are a must-see. The Jewish State is a stand out success story with its high tech industry. A comparison of ancient Jerusalem with modern Tel Aviv may leave you scratching your head. Wadi Rum and Petra are Jordan’s two best-known attractions but Jordan has far more to offer. The people are amongst the friendliest you will meet. Join this tour certainly for the history, but also for the ancient and modern architecture, the natural beauty, the wonderful cuisine and vastly different cultures.

    If you love food and wine, history and quaint villages, you cannot help but fall in love with Sicily – the Mediterranean’s largest island. Although governed by Italy, the locals are definitely Sicilian. They are passionate, talkative and laid back all at the same time. And don’t get in the way of a local and a TV screen – they are football-mad! The Aeolian Islands are also truly representative of the Mediterranean lifestyle – a slow pace of life, food & wine, sunshine and fishing villages – what is not to love.

    With scenery to rival Switzerland, a growing reputation for cheese and wine and a surprising number of UNESCO World Heritage sites, it’s little wonder adventurous travellers are increasingly turning to Eastern Europe. Dine in centuries-old restaurants, wander along cobblestone streets and explore medieval castles – including the one said to have inspired the gothic horror novel Dracula in Transylvania – on our small group tours to Bulgaria, Romania and Moldova without the crowds, or high cost, of Western Europe.
