Journey to the Holy Land, a place not only steeped in remarkable history but it is also the land where the world's 3 great monotheistic religions have their origins - Judaism, Christianity and Islam. These lands have been ruled by a succession of ancient to modern empires, including Babylonian, Persian, Greek Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Islamic, Christian (crusaders), Ottoman and British, each of which has left its mark. Today, Israel and Jordan co-exist peacefully.
In Israel, we visit Jerusalem where we spend time at and learn about many of the most impressive and significant religious sites. Visit Haifa, Golan Heights, Druze villages, Sea of Galilee, Nazareth and enjoy an overnight stay on a Kibbutz. Take a cable car to the ancient mountain top fortress of Massada. Enjoy a dip (or float) in the Dead Sea and visit the site where the Dead Sea scrolls were found. Experience Berber hospitality and a camel ride, visit Ben Gurion's hut & grave, the massive Ramon crater and witness the natural beauty of the Red Sea at Eilat.
In Jordan, stay in a comfortable tent in Wadi Rum, with it's massive pillars of sandstone rock rising from the rose-red desert floor.
