Itinerary and Meals
See Israel and Jordan on this guided tour of the historic Middle East, and enjoy shorter travel time, fewer crowds, and lower costs than the busy travel season. Begin in Tel Aviv, stop in the port of Jaffa, then through the Holy Land to Caesarea to visit the Roman Amphitheater and Crusader Fortress, and also Nazareth in Galilee, to visit the Church of the Annunciation. Stop in Cana—site of Jesus’ wedding miracle—on your way to Haifa. Visit the sites of Jesus’ life, including the Mount of Beatitudes and Capernaum. Travel to David and Goliath’s Valley of Elah; Samson and Delilah’s Valley of Ayalon; and cruise on the Sea of Galilee. You’ll also visit the birthplace of Jesus in Bethlehem, and enjoy a four-night stay in Jerusalem. Take an excursion to Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, and visit the Israel Museum, which holds the Shrine of the Book, and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Visit Jerusalem’s Old City, the Garden Tomb, and the Mount of Olives. See the Garden of Gethsemane, follow the Stations of the Cross along the Via Dolorosa, and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre at the site of the crucifixion. View the Temple Mount, the Dome of the Rock mosque, and visit the holy Western Wall; take an excursion to historic Masada to visit the cliff-top fortress; and float in the waters of the Dead Sea—with fewer crowds in this low-season travel to Israel. In Jordan, travel to the Greco-Roman city of Jerash; Bethany Beyond the Jordan, where John the Baptist is said to have baptized Jesus; Madaba with its archaeological treasures; Mount Nebo, where Moses saw the Promised Land; and Jordan’s “Grand Canyon” at Wadi Mujib. Take an exciting four-wheel drive through the pristine desert of Wadi Rum. Visit Petra, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World—stand in awe in front of the 1st-century-BC Treasury, carved into the sheer sandstone rock, and walk down the Siq, the colorful gorge between the high cliffs; also sip tea in a real Bedouin tent. Ancient sites and fascinating landscapes await you on this off-season guided tour of Israel and Jordan—without the crowds, costs, or lengthy travel schedule of the high-season!
