Israel & Wonders Of Jordan
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 vacation!
