Israel and Jordan are treasure troves of historical and biblical sites, and on this Israel and Jordan tour, you’ll visit the most famous and interesting of them—many of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These include Baha’i Shrine in Haifa, 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 real Bedouin tent.
Also, visit many of the sites 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; and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, which stands on the site where Jesus was born.
Globus has also arranged some out-of-the-ordinary experiences for you on this Israel and Jordan tour, such as a relaxing cruise on the Sea of Galilee, and a lecture on kibbutz life. Travel to the Dead Sea, where Globus has arranged for you to experience the water’s incredible buoyancy and receive a salt scrub gift. Take a four-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.
These are just some of the many highlights and marvelous sites you’ll visit on this once-in-a-lifetime Israel and Jordan holiday!
