Our guides and drivers are there to help ease the way for you and minimize the inconveniences of traveling in a foreign land. We are equally proud of the smaller, more intimate beds-and-breakfasts and small inns that we have found to be more catering to our Muslim clientele such as riads and Paradores. Many are historic monuments that have been respectfully and tastefully converted. Not only do they offer you an experience not found in larger "Holiday Inn" types of hotels, but they also give new life to historic monuments that would otherwise be abandoned and ultimately destroyed or replaced by chain hotels.
These establishments—from small inns to game lodges to grand "old-world" hotels—embody the charm and Islamic culture of our destinations and offer you a chance to get to know the people who work there and their daily lives. We do not believe, however, that private travel need be prohibitively expensive. In fact, many of our Muslim clients report that our prices are comparable to some of the group tours they have used or researched before they found us.
