From cultural tours exploring ancient biblical sites and archaeological wonders to beach breaks on the shores of soothing waters, Israel and Jordan offer a treasure trove of new experiences.
Cultural city breaks
Our favourite experiences in Israel and Jordan lie in their remarkable cities. Tel Aviv is as eclectic and enchanting as it is liberal and laid-back; visit the ancient-stone old town, discover the world’s largest collection of Bauhaus buildings and revel in non-stop nightlife. Jerusalem is one of the most fabled cities on Earth and full of history dating back over 5000 years. Explore the Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Armenian Quarters in the fascinating Old City, visit Temple Mount and browse mystical markets. You can also visit one of the New Seven Wonders of the World – the rose-red city of Petra – from our hotels in Aqaba.
Our beach holidays in Israel and Jordan focus on the four seas: Red Sea, Dead Sea, Mediterranean Sea and the Sea of Galilee. With six miles of shoreline and marine life-rich waters, Eilat is popular with divers, snorkellers and sun seekers, while travellers head to the Dead Sea to float in its buoyant water at the lowest point on Earth. Aqaba is Jordan’s only coastal city and its Red Sea beach resorts like Tala Bay are great for snorkelling. Our range of beach accommodation includes large family-friendly hotels and luxury spa resorts.
Escorted small group tours
Our relaxed small group tours with local tour leaders and quality accommodation offer a more sociable way to experience a destination. We’ve crafted a Highlights of Israel tour that takes you on a journey to diverse cities, religious sites and the shores of the famously saline Dead Sea, and a Highlights of Jordan tour which is a great way to take in Jordan’s staggering relics and ruins.
Israel is a destination where you’ll want to explore more than one region. It’s easy to hop between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for an insightful twin-city holiday, or add on the Dead Sea for a relaxing end to your trip.
