Day 5: Discover Jerusalem

This morning’s sightseeing tour of Jerusalem's Old Town on foot will leave an unforgettable impression on you as you follow in the footsteps of the prophets, disciples and kings. Ascend the Mount of Olives, then stroll through the Garden of Gethsemane, spending some t...

Day 6: Venture to Bethlehem

Today's trip to the Church of the Visitation at Ein Karem reminds us of the visit paid by the Virgin Mary to Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist. Here you’ll see the 42 ceramic tablets bearing the verses of the Magnificat in as many different languages. Next, yo...

Day 7: Off to Admire the Masada Fortress and the Dead Sea

This morning we travel across the Judean wilderness like John the Baptist once did to preach the Word of God. Arriving in Jericho later, you can almost imagine the roar of trumpets and triumphant shouts that led Joshua's army to victory by the grace of God. See the Qu...

After breakfast, the excitement builds as you transfer to Allenby Bridge where you'll cross the border to Jordan and meet your Jordanian Travel Director who will accompany you for the rest of the spiritual journey. You’ll enjoy a visit to the Bethany Beyond Jordan Lut...

Day 10: A Day Exploring Mount Nebo, Madaba and Shobak Castle

Today's trip takes us along the King's Highway, and you’ll be thrilled that you’re following the very same route that Moses hoped to follow as he led his people north. You’ll imagine that difficult journey watching the desolate landscape unfold before you as you head ...

Day 11: Take in the Magnificent Petra and Continue to Wadi Rum

​The rose-red façades of Petra beckon today as we Dive Into Culture and enjoy a full day to explore one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Carved into the sheer rock face over 2,000 years ago by Nabataeans, Petra was an important link in the Silk Road trade route. Ent...

We’ll help you delve deep into the heart of each city and capture the true essence of each new destination.

We are committed to establishing lasting relationships with our guests by exceeding their expectations the first time and every time, through consistently outstanding quality of service, experience and value.
