What You’ll Love...

The Sights – Stand in awe in front of the beauty of Petra, discover the Old City of Jerusalem and more

Your first stop in Israel is the cosmopolitan city of Tel Aviv, where you will be able to enjoy some leisure time to explore some of the city’s splendid Bauhaus buildings, wander along the beach promenade and the Jaffa Port with its fascinating Arab heritage or get lost in the Sarona market - the heart of Israel's culinary art scene.

Next, journey to the ancient harbour of Caesarea, before arriving in Tiberias, a remarkable city nestled on the shores of the tranquil Sea of Galilee – the largest freshwater lake in Israel.

Discover one of the oldest cities in the world, Jerusalem: walk through the city’s colorful neighbourhoods before enjoying a city tour that’ll take you through Jerusalem’s Old City, visiting the four distinct sections – the Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Armenian Quarters. Travel back in time and learn about the past with an optional visit to the commanding Yad Vashem – the official memorial and museum to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

Visit the Dead Sea, one of the Seven Wonders of the World and the lowest point on earth, sitting 400 metres below sea level. Said to do wonders for the mind and skin, you’ll experience what it’s like to float on the only body of water in the world that allows nothing to sink due to its high level of salt.

Journey on to discover the magic of Petra on a day tour, revealing an intricate network of tombs, caves, a small amphitheatre and ruins of temples dotted around the area. Hidden from the western world until 1812, Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt rediscovered this ancient carved city and shared it with the world. UNESCO dubbed it one of the most precious cultural properties of man’s cultural heritage.

Ascend Mount Nebo, the sacred ridge where Moses was purportedly granted a view of the Promised Land. Gaze upon a breathtaking view of the Holy Land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea at this site reputed to be the burial place of Moses himself - according to Christian tradition.

End your tour in Amman, Jordan's capital city where ancient ruins and modern buildings sit side by side. Visit Amman's main attractions at your leisure, discovering the ancient Citadel monument, marking the centre of the capital, the Temple of Hercules and the Roman Theatre, one of the largest and most impressive amphitheaters of the ancient world.
