Through Shams Tours, we want to challenge harmful stereotypes by enabling cultural exchange and fostering deeper insights through immersive tours and dialogue.
By complementing visits to major historical and cultural sites with intentional interactions with local community leaders, creators and small business owners, Shams Tours encourages visitors to challenge stereotypes, learn about society and politics, and participate in intercultural dialogue. Shams Tours resists the superficiality of typical touristic experiences and instead deliberately bridges the gap between visitors and locals, deepens visitors’ understanding of the place, and inspires insights on personal and intercultural levels.
Shams Tours Aims To:
Yoga retreats in the Wadi Rum desert. Explorations of both Little and Big Petra. Cultural excursions into the northern mountains. Dialogues deep within Dead Sea Wadis. These are just a few examples of experiences you can have through Shams Tours.
