You visit will many UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These include Baha’i Shrine, the world center of Baha’i faith; Acre, a historic walled port-city where you’ll see some of the immense underground Crusader city; Masada, a rugged cliff-top fortress; and Petra, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World®, where you’ll walk down the Siq, a narrow gorge with spectacular colors flanked on either side by high cliffs. Here, see the iconic and famed Treasury and sip tea in a Bedouin tent.
Also visit many of the sights associated with Jesus, including Cana, site of the first miracle; Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount; Capernaum, where Jesus recruited his first followers among the fishermen; the Garden of Gethsemane with its Rock of Agony, where Jesus prayed his last prayer before his arrest; the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, erected on the site of the crucifixion; the house of Caiaphas, where Jesus was kept the night after his arrest; and the Church of the Nativity, which stands on the site where Jesus was born.
We have also arranged some out-of-the-ordinary and fun experiences for you on this Israel and Jordan tour, such as a cruise on the Sea of Galilee, and a lecture on kibbutz life. You’ll travel to the Dead Sea, where we have arranged for you to experience the water’s buoyancy and receive a salt scrub gift. You’ll also take a 4-wheel drive to the desert of Wadi Rum, virtually untouched by humanity with its incredible rocky landscape and centuries-old paintings spread on the rocky outcrops.
