The Islamic Travel Mission
Being travel adventures ourselves that have for many years lived, worked and travelled to the most inspiring and exotic countries the Islamic world has to offer, we want to share our love for these countries with you and captivate our audiences to inspire others to travel.
Spending many years in the Middle East immersing ourselves in the rich cultural heritage, we now know the intricacies, places and experiences that not many foreign visitors have encountered. We have designed experiences that will have you returning home saying Islamic Travel gave you an experience of a lifetime and value for money that I never would have been able to do on my own.
With that in mind we have personally hand crafted unique cultural immersive experiences that indulge your senses. We want to be different by offering experiences that go deeper than just taking photos at famous landmarks. We want you to connect and feel like you’re a local, by giving you opportunities to appreciate the destinations we visit through more meaningful interactions with its beautiful natural landscapes, its indigenous people, its authentic food, and cultural heritage.
We want you to be part of the culture, whether through sampling the local cuisine, witnessing the live sounds and scents while walking through authentic 1000 year old bustling streets, learning Islamic calligraphy or interacting with a local community by sharing a meal, or a captivating activity.
If you find any information to be unclear or incorrect, we ask that you let us know via our contact page. We will correct it immediately.
We believe all pricing should be clear and transparent so you can make an informed choice of which itinerary or tour package is best for you. On every tour page, the departure dates and their respective prices can be found under the “Dates & Rates” section, together with the start & end date, discount rate and availability.
Any mandatory fees required to partake on certain included activities, i.e. mandatory safari adventure pass in Africa, are stated together with the tour price. We clearly state any extra fees to the tour price and what they are for, i.e. tipping kitty etc. This information can be found online on every active tour page, and will be provided in the “Trip Notes”.
We also let you know about any additional expenses that you might consider so that you can plan your trip accordingly.
As part of our mission to deliver inspiring vacations that give more than just the usual tourist hotspots, we know it is important not to damage or burden the communities that we visit. We are committed to responsible travel: we make sure that our tour groups are small enough to leave the areas we travel to just as we found them, and that we respect the peoples, lands and cultures we interact with.
It’s about making the choice to respect and benefit the people, cultures, economy, and surroundings of the area. While we must all be responsible travellers, Islamic Travel makes it easy by including responsible travel practices into each of our itineraries. When you travel with us, you are investing in local communities, travelling and showing respect and curiosity for diverse cultures and customs, while having the opportunity to form meaningful bonds with the people you meet. See our key areas below.
Connecting the Dots
How many stories from Islam do you know, but have no idea who the prophets were at that time, when it happened in relation to other prophets, or where & why it happened?
Visit the places where these events occurred, as we explain the who, when and the why. We believe, through experiential travel, to these many historically significant locations, your understanding and appreciation of so many of the events mentioned in the Quran will profoundly increase. By travelling to, and seeing the actual locations, recounting the stories in detail, understanding the place and context in which these events occurred, you will have a deeper appreciation of the struggles, sacrifices, and triumphs of our Islamic ancestors.
You will be able to place each event in time, context and location. By broadening your lens of the world through these travel experiences, we hope this assists in understanding where we came from as an Umah, where we are now, and where we are all ultimately going.
Join us on one of our truly unique Islamic history tours, learning of our rich Islamic history, while having a wonderful holiday experience at the same time.
Our tours are all about immersing you into the culture of the destination you are visiting. You’ll visit must-see, iconic locations, where you will have the chance to eat local foods that you’ve likely never tried before, and you’ll be able to engage with local communities through shared activities.
Meeting, interacting with, preparing traditional meals with & sharing a meal with people in local communities will create memories that will last a lifetime and foster a greater appreciation for the world around us.
All this really means is that our tours are so great, you will definitely want to go on another one with us, at which time you are most welcome.
We only use trusted local tour guides and operators as our partners, so your trip is actually helping to support the locations that you visit. Tour groups are kept to a reasonable size to create a sense of community within the group, and to allow us to provide a more personalised experience.
On some group tours, there may be a dedicated tour leader throughout the trip, whether a local from the country visited or a dedicated Islamic Travel tour leader. Islamic Travel tour leaders are there to ensure you have the best experience possible. If a tour leader is scheduled to accompany any tour, it will be listed as part of the Trip notes on the itinerary page.
