Word From Our Chairman:

The treasures of Yemen, so ample and extremely varied, are sought by art historians, archaeologists, chefs and adventure travellers alike. Whether you consider Yemen’s age-old culture, great monuments of art, most impressive nature reserves, compelling myths, colourful bazaars, tribal areas of great fascination, spice-laden cuisine or most impressive landscapes its special treasure, the choice is yours.

Indeed the most important one is the traditional ambiance and hospitality for the travellers and the joy of receiving guests, of treating them to the best that we can offer.

FTI was founded as a logical extension of two national qualities: Traditional hospitality and age-old cultural beauty. To offer today’s travellers who require a host able to cater their desire with careful planning and attention to detail. To combine a natural talent for making people comfortable, with necessary organizational skills to ensure the best trips for our guests as individuals or members of group travel.
