Middle East Vacations

Middle East tours typically visit Israel, Jordan or Turkey, in a region often referred to as the Holy Land. Escorted tours include the services of an expert guide who knows the area well. Guides will ensure a comfortable, educational and enriching experience, while guests enjoy the convenience and value of well-chosen hotels and discounted airfares.

These itineraries feature a number of historically and spiritually significant destinations. Jerusalem, Nazareth and Bethlehem are prevalent stops in Israel. Jerusalem's Israel Museum and its Shrine of the Book, which holds the Dead Sea Scrolls, are among the highlights. Other lures include Nazareth's Church of Annunciation and Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity.

Holy Land tours also visit Jordan or Turkey. In Jordan, guests spend time in Petra, its monastery, treasury and ancient tombs carved into the red-orange rock. Travel to Turkey will likely include Istanbul, the present-day name for the ancient city of Constantinople, and Ephesus, a well-preserved site of Greek and Roman architectural remains.
