Jordan & Israel

Jordan

What We Love

 The Treasury in Petra 

The Treasury in Petra 

  • Experiencing the magic of an ancient place: from the ruins of Greco-Roman cities, to biblical landmarks, to the vast deserts that inspired Lawrence of Arabia, Jordan is an iconic destination of the Arab world.
  • The archaeological site Petra, the “Red Rose City,” was carved out of pink sandstone cliffs around 300 B.C. by the Nabateans. The once-thriving capital is surrounded by stark mountains. A beautiful and fascinating site, Petra is the highlight of any trip to this region.
  • Walking though Jerash, the “Pompeii of the Middle East,” and marveling at the splendored past of the Romans and their reach in the world.
  • A long float in the salts and minerals of the Dead Sea—the original healing spa treatment!

Things To See & Do

  • Take a four-wheel-drive excursion through the Wadi Rum, a desert of epic proportions and home to the enduring Bedouin culture.
  • In Jordan’s modern capital, explore the Citadel, the Great Temple of Amman, and the Roman Theater.
  • Travel to Madaba, the famed “City of Mosaics,” and then on to Mount Nebo for expansive views of the Holy Land.
  • Visit the royal family's world-renowned auto collection.
  • Dine by candlelight at little Petra in a private dinner hosted for your party.
  • Enjoy the incredible hospitality and food of the Jordanians.

Israel 

What We Love

  • The Holy Land is laden with the spiritual and historical heft one might expect, but it is also enmeshed in a fascinating cosmopolitan society replete with seaside resorts, urban oases, and cutting-edge culture and cuisine.
  • Israel is the epicenter of faiths, home of El Aska Mosque, Temple Mount, and The Church of the Holy Sepulchre. If a particular religious history is what you seek, just ask and we will tailor the trip to your interests. 
  • Touring Jerusalem from the four corners of the Old City, to the Western Wall, to the Garden of Gethsemane.
  • In that little town called Bethlehem… visit the Church of the Nativity, built over the cave where it is believed Jesus was born.

What To Do

  • Set off for a private boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, stopping at Capernaum, seeing St. Peter’s house and the synagogue where Jesus taught. 
  • Take in Tel Aviv, a city on the sea, and stop at the artist colony of Jaffa.
  • Visit Masada, where Jewish Zealots took their own lives instead of surrendering to the Romans. Check out the Qumran Caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1947. 
  • Visit Yad Vashem, a leading institution in Shoah education, and the Israel Museum.
