A trip to the holy lands should be on every Christian traveler's path. As we follow Jesus in our spiritual lives, we can physically walk in His footsteps. Old Testament Bible stories become illustrated in our minds as we see the places where they took place. As well, we experience the world of the Apostles as they first took up the path to follow Jesus, and then, ventured out to spread the news as they had been instructed to do.
Israel Escape 7 days by Globus
Begin your Israel Escape in Tel Aviv and enjoy a welcome dinner together with your Tour Director and traveling companions. In Jaffa walk around the beautifully restored port-starting point for medieval pilgrimages to Jerusalem. Continue your guided tour of Israel through the Holy Land to Caesarea, and journey to Nazareth in Galilee to visit the Church of the Annunciation. Stop in Cana-site of Jesus’ wedding miracle turning water into wine-on your way to historical Haifa. A wealth of fascinating visits awaits you: the Baha’i Shrine; the Mount of Beatitudes, and Capernaum-all sites where the story of Jesus unfolded, the Valley of Elah where David slew Goliath, the Valley of Ayalon to hear the story of Samson and Delilah, and a serene cruise on the Sea of Galilee. You’ll also visit the birthplace of Jesus in Bethlehem. Stay four nights in Jerusalem to discover this symbolic city. Embark on a moving excursion to Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial. Visit the Israel Museum containing the Shrine of the Book, and the Dead Sea Scrolls-the oldest biblical manuscripts in the world. Visit the Old City, the Garden Tomb, and take in the view from 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 and the Dome of the Rock mosque, and visit the Western Wall, the most holy shrine in Jewish religion. Also visit the fortress of Masada-a historic site for Jewish faith. The experience of floating in the buoyant salt waters of the Dead Sea enriches the wonderful memories already collected during your inspirational Israel Escape!
Jordan Escape 7 days by Globus
Your off-season guided tour of Jordan begins in the capital city of Amman and concludes at the Dead Sea-one of the lowest spots on Earth. Marvel at Jordan’s many amazing sites, but without the crowds or prices of the busy season! Visit Amman-one of the world's oldest continuously inhabited cities with a history spanning nine millennia-to see the Roman amphitheater and take an exciting excursion to Umm Qais, and Jerash, a well-preserved Greco-Roman city buried for centuries under desert sands. Join in guided sightseeing of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Petra-one of the New 7 Wonders of the World®, and carved directly into the sandstone rock. Walk down the Siq, a narrow gorge with spectacular colors between its high cliffs, and stand in awe of the famed Treasury site, carved out of the sheer sandstone cliff in the 1st century BC. You’ll sip tea in a Bedouin tent-a tradition of the semi-nomadic Bedouin people still inhabiting this region.
Take an adventure on a four-wheel drive in the desert of Wadi Rum, virtually untouched by humanity with its incredible landscape, monolithic rockscapes, and centuries-old paintings spread on the rocky outcrops. You'll also visit Kerak, and its 12th-century Crusader Castle; Wadi Mujib, the "Jordanian Grand Canyon;" Madaba, home to a 6th-century mosaic map of the Holy Land; Mount Nebo, the holy site where Moses saw the Promised Land; Bethany Beyond the Jordan, where Christians believe Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist; and the Dead Sea. All of this, minus the crowds and cost of high-season, await you on this one-week guided tour of Jordan!
