Discovering the Holy Land and exploring the lost city of Petra

October 6 – 21, 2018

How does it work?


Emotions abound in this magical journey to the holy land, dynamic center of the three monotheistic pillars

Amman’s layered history is reflected in its diverse people and its varied architecture.

Bethlehem meaning ‘house of bread’, has always harbored a melting pot of peoples and cultures

Petra capital of the Nabataean Arabs and carved right out of the rock, is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world

Behold Wadi Rum, often called the ‘Valley of the Moon,’ as it climbs straight out of the sandstone and red rock

Float in the calming, curing waters of the Dead Sea

Culture abounds in an intimate setting as we visit and dine with the Bedouin people

Scenery & Culture – Immerse yourself in local culture and landscapes while retaining the comforts you desire

Savour local specialities with a carefully prepared mix of familiar dishes, as well as wonderful middle eastern classics

Outstanding accommodation more than just a place to lay your head, they enhance your experience with personality, local flavour, character and ultimate comfort
