What customers say about us
"I would like to thank Arabian Voyages for the fantastic trip I made to Yemen in May 2012. These guys go out of their way to help you. Sana'a itself is a destination in its own right. There are plenty of opportunities for exploring the old city with its various souqs and mosques (the Great mosque being a notable example). I also took a tour outside Sanaa, which included visiting the mountain villages of Menaka and Al Hajjarah. I will definitely be returning soon" - Mr. James, United Kingdom
"I had a great time in Yemen and I was impressed about your professional pre-organisation. Mohammed was also very kind with a very sympathetic kind of hospitality. All that components allowed us to get a great and deep impression of Yemen within 3 days. I'll never forget that and thank you very much for everything you organised for us!!" - Mr. Wolfgang, Austria
"The 2 day trips were very interesting and were more than worth every single hour we passed in the car. I liked the cozy accommodation in the Golden Daar within the old town. The atmosphere was incomparable more charming than in a location of international hotel chains. Last but not least the old town of Sana'a with all the historic houses. Walking through the narrow streets was unbelievable, unbeatable and unforgettable - Orient at its best - a must see!!" - Austrian Customer
"I have had a very positive experience with Arabian Voyages and I will highly recommend it if you should consider using a travel agency in Yemen. Director Ron himself is an experienced traveler in the Middle East and has spent a decent amount of time living in Yemen. What really impressed me was his efficiency and honesty - my email inquiries were all replied the same day and they were extremely informative. Same goes to Mohammed, his local manager/agent. The humorous Mohammed had been incredibly helpful throughout my stay and was always happy to go the extra mile to aid me with my expedition. Their driver has a good set of social skills in getting me pass the tribal and army checkpoints with ease." - Mr. Ka Wing, Korea
"Mohamed and Abdul have both been very helpful and accommodating during our trips which is important to us since we're travelling with a little kid. We'll certainly recommend Arabian Voyages to anyone thinking of going to Yemen in the future." - Family from Singapore
What to do in Yemen?
What about something additional to the usual sightseeing that most travelagencies offer? Wander through the narrow alleys of Old Sanaa and loose yourself in the oldest bazaar of the Arabian peninsula where ancient caravans once used to set off. You can explore hilltop villages by foot. Or stay a little and enroll in an Arabic course. You can attend Yemeni weddings and watch the ceremonial dagger dances. Visit handicraft artists. Or sit down in a mafradge where locals chew qat and discuss daily life. Get yourself a scrub in a traditional hamam. Try the cuisine! Eat salta, fahsa or fuul in a typical cafeteria. Learn about Islamic culture and experience the genuine South-Arabian hospitality first hand. We try to involve our customers in the local culture as much as possible! If you are coming from the West, we highly recommend a stopover in the Egyptian capital for one or two days. Check our Cairo Citypackage and learn why. See you in Sanaa, inscha'Allah!
And what about Iran?
Despite our name Arabian Voyages, we offer tours to Persia as well. To Aryan, or Iran how this diverse nation is called in modern times. In Iran you can witness a completely different culture, most of it is opposite from what you know through western media. Friendly, charming people who like to explain their country to you. Here you will find the reminiscences of the world's greatest ancient empires. Find yourself walking in lush green gardens where the Iranians gather at the tombs of their famous poets. In which country can you go hiking up the mountains, skiing in the snow, do desert camping, go surfing at sea and hunting in the jungle? The answer is Iran, where we offer tours through our specialized sister agency. You can explore the central Pars province, or even better, try our unique combined 15-day Yemen-Iran package which shows you the best of two worlds. From Yemen, Iran is only one hop away!
