Socially Conscious Travel Across The Globe
Our Dual Narrative Tour -- co-led by Palestinian and Israeli tour guides -- was launched 15 years ago and has created friendships and partnerships that still exist today.

That was the beginning of a new category of travel - Socially Conscious Travel

Since then, MEJDI has designed Socially Conscious Tours in 30 destinations on 5 continents, all based on our founders’ deep understanding of how to create social change.

MEJDI's Dual Narrative Tours
An industry first, our two-guide model equips groups with two local guides, each representing unique cultural, religious, political, and ethnic narratives. Originally launched in Israel and Palestine as the Dual Narrative Tour™—where MEJDI travelers are guided by one Palestinian guide and one Israeli—this tour proved so popular that it is now a socially conscious option in many MEJDI destinations.

Global Leader in Socially Conscious Travel.

Together, we can create a more peaceful and interconnected world through socially conscious travel

The MEJDI team’s deep roots in social change work is where our mission comes from. MEJDI was founded by two peacebuilding practitioners, Aziz Abu Sarah and Scott Cooper. After leading social change programs all over the world, Aziz and Scott discovered that travel was one of the most powerful tools for creating a better planet. They decided to share their unique experiences and an unmatched network of contacts with those who aspire to become citizen diplomats.

We hope you’ll join us.
