There was nothing ordinary about this truly unique, non-traditional tour company that provides thought provoking narratives from a diverse array of locals. The educational component was mind-blowing – one that was needed. Mejdi is one of a kind.


The time you might have spent shopping on a “traditional tour” is instead on this MEJDI tour spent gaining insight into the current events of the area through the stories of the locals and professionals you will meet. – Katherine
