Combined tours of the Muslim world

Package tours in the Muslim world are an excellent idea to make the most of your vacation. And at Mandala Tours we are experts in this solution, which we develop in all the destinations where we work. In these lines we tell you more about this type of travel, which may be the most suitable for you.

What is a package tour

We call combined trips those circuits in which two or more countries are included in the same program. And for this to be feasible and make sense, these conditions , or at least part of them, must be met:

  • They must be geographically close: in many cases, these countries share a land border, which facilitates travel by road.
  • There must be a good transport connection between the two countries: in the event that the countries do not share a land border or if such a connection is not the most adequate, it is essential that there are direct flights between the two countries, which speeds up the change of country within the circuit.
  • They must have a certain cultural, historical, scenic or other affinity.In the case of Mandala Tours’ proposals, such as those shown below, this is easier, as a common thread is usually the Arab culture or the Muslim religion, although not only the Arab culture or the Muslim religion.
  • Both countries must have similar quality standards in terms of tourism services: in the case of Mandala Tours, this quality standard must be premium.

Examples of package tours we organize

Taking into account all of the above, Mandala Tours offers a large number of combined trips through the Muslim world and surrounding countries, of variable duration and with the possibility of modifications according to the preferences of each traveler.

One of the combined tours that we organize the most is that of Egypt and Jordan: integrating in the same program World Heritage Sites such as the Pyramids of Giza and the pink city of Petra results in an unforgettable trip. And if you add other fascinating destinations such as the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, the desert of Wadi Rum or the temples of Abu Simbel, the experience is hard to match.

In fact, because of its ‘centrality’ within the Muslim world, Egypt can act as the first country in many other combined circuits. In fact, this is how we conceive it in packages that include the United Arab Emirates (Dubai, Abu Dhabi), Oman and Israel.

Turkey also offers many possibilities as far as package tours are concerned, since from Istanbul you can travel to or from any of the above mentioned destinations. But if there is a star vacation package, it is Turkey and the Greek Islands, on an unforgettable cruise in the Aegean Sea.

Morocco, for its part, also lends itself to being integrated into combined circuits with Egypt, thanks to the direct connection between Cairo and Casablanca. But also highly valued are the trips that include its neighbors to the north of the Strait of Gibraltar, such as Spain and Portugal, with which it has interesting and surprising historical-artistic ties.

And these are just a few examples because, in reality, we can make package tours to virtually any country in the Middle East and the Muslim world in general, as well as other nearby countries. This is thanks to the extensive network of trusted partners and agencies that Mandala Tours has, beyond the destinations in which we operate locally. So, if you have any ideas in mind to combine your trip, do not hesitate to let us know.

In addition, Mandala Tours is continuously working to incorporate new destinations, and at the time of writing this post we are finalizing our operations in Tanzania and Tibet. Contact us for more details and suggestions!
