Itinerary

Upon arrival at Ben Gurion airport (Tel Aviv) you will be met by a representative and transferred to your hotel. Overnight Tel Aviv.

After breakfast, meet you tour guide in the morning and set off from Tel Aviv, driving south, passing by the cities of Ashdod, Ashkelon and Beersheba, the capital of the Negev Desert. Continue via Arad to Masada, Israel’s foremost archaeological park. Ascend via cable-car for a thorough visit that gives insight to the rituals, politics and culture of the people who inhabited this desert fortress, which was the last stronghold of the Jewish Zealots in their war against the Romans. Visit the excavations, Herod’s palaces, the synagogue, bathhouse and cisterns, and enjoy the breath-taking view of the Roman camps and the Dead Sea. Descend to the lowest place on earth – the Dead Sea, to experience the mineral-rich black mud and to float in its salty waters. Passing by the oasis of Ein Gedi, proceed through the Judean Desert to Jerusalem. Overnight in Jerusalem.

Meals Included:
Breakfast

Start the day at the Israel Museum’s Shrine of the Book with the famous Dead Sea scrolls, then a visit to the beautifully renovated model of the Herodian city of Jerusalem, dating back to the time of the Second Temple. Enjoy Ein Karem; a picturesque village in the south western outskirts of Jerusalem. This small village has great significance in Christian traditions, since this is where according to tradition John the Baptist was born. Visit Yad Vashem the official memorial to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, established in 1953, located at the foot of Mt. Hertzl. Visit Bethlehem – the birthplace of Jesus at the Church of the Nativity and Manger Square. Overnight in Jerusalem.

*Bethlehem is under the Palestinian Authority Jurisdiction and therefore the visit is subject to confirmation on the day.

Meals Included:
Breakfast

Enter the Old City of Jerusalem where you will see the Western Wall and the actual site of the Second Temple, the Temple Mount. Walk the Way of the Cross, the Via Dolorosa, to Calvary and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, housing both the traditional site of Crucifixion and the Tomb of the Resurrection. To the southwest, just outside the Old City, is Mount Zion, with the traditional tomb of King David and the Room of the Last Supper. Enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of Jerusalem – the holy city for each of the world’s three great religions – Christianity, Judaism and Islam, from atop the Mount of Olives. Visit the Garden of Gethsemane where Judas betrayed Jesus. In the heart of a neighbourhood in downtown Jerusalem, visit Mahane Yehuda to experience the flavours, aromas, colours and the traders’ interaction with the crowds, at the largest open market in Israel. Overnight in Jerusalem.

Meals Included:
Breakfast

Drive from Jerusalem to the Sheikh Hussein border crossing for procedures to enter Jordan. Proceed to Jerash – city of the Decapolis, located about 45km north of Amman in the fertile heights of the Gilad. Visit the ancient Roman city with colonnaded streets, the baths and the hill of the top Temple. Drive to Amman for a panoramic city tour of the Jordanian capital including the Citadel and Roman Amphitheatre. Overnight in Amman.

Meals Included:
Breakfast

After breakfast drive to Mount Nebo, from where Moses viewed the Promised Land. From here you will see the Jordan Valley, Jericho and the Dead Sea. Continue south along the Desert Highway to Wadi Musa, the modern village of Petra. Enter the site of Petra and walk, or ride on horseback, to the “Siq” (Canyon). Walk through the “Siq” to the red rock city, the ancient capital of the Nabateans from 3rd Century BC to 2nd Century AD. Visit the most interesting carved monuments such as the Treasury (El Khazneh – a tomb of a Nabatean king) then the field of tombs, obelisks and the altar. From this point, you can view the whole of the rock city. After the visit, return to Wadi Musa. Overnight in Petra.

Meals Included:

This company took such good care of me.

Review for: Heritage of the Holy Land

This company took such good care of me. Helped me every step of the way in a very unsettling time in our world. This is the only company I would book a tour with when I come back. They went above and beyond to make sure I was well taken care of and safe and even went beyond!

Across The Jordan River

Review for: Across The Jordan River

We just returned from this tour and we had a great time. Huge fan of our tour guide, Jerry!! He is by far the very best tour guide we have ever had in our many years of traveling. He was funny, very knowledgeable, very aware of needs of our group, and took care of us like we were his family. Highly recommend this tour and Jerry as a guide. The tour was great. Jerry was fantastic and transfers were perfect and on time.
