Home › Suggested Itineraries
       
As we are an independent travel club, all our tours are offered privately and are flexibly based on the dates that you, our members, select. The rigidly set departure times of ‘package’ holidays have no place here.

Elite Tour Club’s quoted prices are guaranteed and derive from very best negotiatable offers. This applies to all of our luxury service providers, from top-class hotels and fine transportation to cruise lines.

We are very happy to make sure that every conceivable finishing touch is included in your tour. Ask us about anything which would make your trip all the more memorable, be it a particluar sight you want to see, a commemoration of a special event you are celebrating or luxury treatments in one of our spas. Our travel consultants are here to help you.

We have been suggesting itineraries to the Middle East and North Africa for 15 years, and are passionate travellers, so we recognise all that’s important about successful touring. Each of the following Suggested Itineraries has been meticulously pre-planned, and is always operated efficiently, responsibly and above all, safely.

We are constantly fine-tuning our renowned tours, and the positive members’feedback we receive is a testament to the flare of our founders, management and staff. They make Elite Tour Club itineraries vividly authentic, historically satisfying and fabulously enjoyable. Each of our consultants and tour leaders — many of them qualified Egyptologists — has an exhaustive knowledge of Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Syria and Sudan. They’ve travelled extensively, and many have resided in the region and gained considerable national insight.
ELITE TOUR CLUB'S SOUGHT-AFTER TOURS


Our passionate tour leaders will show you where their inspired mentors, the ‘Modern Egyptologists’ of nearly 200 years ago, mapped, excavated and recorded newfound hoards at the Great Pyramids of Giza.

A land of majestic geology and fabulous flora and fauna, the West Bank was annexed in 1949, and the Kingdom of Jordan was born. Today in the Great Rift Valley, the River Jordan pours downward, a watery divider of Israel and Jordan — a river that predominates these tours:

ALL TOURS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO POLITICAL TURMOIL

This is a land of ancient empires — and roads. There is a road that is nargileh pipe-filled with eastern promise: the original Road to Damascus. And Syria’s largest city, Aleppo begins where the resplendent Silk Road almost ends. Our tour will guide you eastwards along the Euphrates to Mesopotamian sites of extraordinary significance:

TitleDays
Selective Syria8 days / 7 nights
Damascus City Tour1 day

Straddling Europe and Asia, Turkey is a historical melting pot where the ancient civilization of the East and Western modernity meet. It has a rich historical, architectural and archaeological history, and for thousands of years, Turkey has been a religious crossroads, not only of Islam and Christianity, but of many others now long forgotten.

Lush and topical to the south, the great land of Sudan slopes towards the Sahara in the north. And the longest river in the world runs through it. The River Nile — the ‘White’ version — ploughs through jungles of humidity; runs through the scariness of Sudd swampland before emerging to join its watery sister at Khartoum.

OUR CONTRIBUTION CONCEPT
We are committed to touring in a manner that is thoughtful and respectful of the local populous, their culture and environment. Our members often attest to the gracious welcomes, many kindnesses and unconditional hospitality that embrace them, and we don’t like to leave our host countries without contributing something good in return.

Each of our magnificent destinations includes many deserving charity projects. We ask that you allow us to donate 5% of the net profit derived from your Elite Tour Club itinerary to whichever of these causes you nominate. Alternatively, our charities invite you to opt for a half-day social and fact-finding visit. You’ll gain a fascinating understanding of their challenges, and of the country’s pressing social issues — plus you’ll meet many of our charities’ benefactors. At your visit’s end, a gift or donation to your newfound friends would be a much-appreciated bonus!
