What our travelers say

Amazing sense of community

“Our tour guide Jihan was FANTASTIC!!! I mean, she went above and beyond. She literally has a special place in my heart, a truly good person. If you’re on the fence about going to Jordan with SoFe, go with them! You won’t regret it and you never know unless you try. Have fun!” — Kaleigh, December 2021

Above and Beyond my expectations

“My favorite part of this Meetup Tour was meeting local people and doing projects with them. We painted pottery and did little mosaics, while talking to them about their life. It felt like we really got to know the culture and being able to relate with other women” Debbie, December 2021

This tour is perfection!
