DAY 1
Arrive Tel Aviv, Israel
Your journey begins today as your flight arrives into Israel, the "Promised Land"
of the Bible and the scene of some of the most stirring events in history. On
arrival at Ben-Gurion International Airport, you are met by an Abercrombie &
Kent representative and assisted in passing through Customs and Immigration
formalities. You are then transferred privately to your hotel.
Located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, the Dan Tel Aviv hotel is in the
center of everything yet away from it all. The beautifully and luxuriously
appointed guest rooms have all been designed with particular dedication to detail
and offer maximum comfort. Facilities include an indoor heated swimming pool,
an outdoor (sea water) swimming pool with giant sun deck overlooking the
beachfront, Jacuzzi, sauna, fitness center, and beach.

DAY 2
Tel Aviv / Caesarea / Megiddo / Tiberias
This morning, meet your guide for the drive up the scenic coast to Caesarea,
ancient capital of the Roman province, where you view the remains of Roman
and Crusader structures.
In Caesarea you see the contrast from "new" to "old". This 2,000 year old city built to honor Augustus Caesar - was once the capital of the Roman province and
was later occupied by the Crusaders. It was here that Herod laid out a classical
city complete with amphitheater and stadium, and also constructed an artificial
harbor with revolutionary underwater concrete pilings-the first such use of
concrete. You see the Roman Aqueduct that is a marvel of engineering.
Today you find a wealth of Roman, Byzantine, Arab and Crusader ruins in the
area, as well as the harbor from which St. Paul was taken prisoner to Rome.
Near the excavated theater, you can view a partial inscription mentioning Pontius
Pilate – this is the only secular reference of his existence.
From here you continue to Megiddo which
overlooks the Jezreel Valley. Megiddo, once
an ancient city-state, is now designated a
UNESCO World Heritage Site because of is
historical, geographical, and theological
importance, as its Greek name, Armageddon,
illustrates. Excavations have unearthed 26
layers of ruins, which makes it one of the most
interesting archaeological sites in Israel.
At the conclusion of your sightseeing you
continue to Tiberias and on to your hotel.
Originally built as a hospital by the Scottish
Church, Scots Hotel is layered with history
and character. The tastefully decorated guest
rooms are set among beautiful gardens and
boast unrivalled views of the Sea of Galilee.
The hotel also has its own private beach on the lake as well as a pool and Spa.

DAY 3
Tiberias / Sea of Galilee / Tiberias
This morning you discover Biblical echoes as you set off on a private boat ride on
the Sea of Galilee.
Next you stop at Capernaum to see
the ancient synagogue where Jesus
taught, and St. Peter's house which
was later converted into a church.
You also visit Tabgha with the Church
of Peter's Primacy and the ancient
mosaic of the Loaves and Fishes. A
fifth century mosaic in the Church of
Multiplication commemorates the
event. You then continue on to the
Mount of Beatitudes, the site where Christ issued his famous Sermon on the
Mount. Time permitting, you visit the excavations at the newly discovered first
century Synagogue in Magdala (which is not yet open to the public).
Afterwards you are driven up to the Golan Heights, a rocky plateau overlooking
the Sea of Galilee. You stop at Banias, one of the sources of the River Jordan at
the foot of Mt. Hermon. Here you see the archaeological remains of this sacred
place that span the Pagan, Jewish, Roman, Byzantine and Muslim eras.
Your next destination is the archeological site of Tel Dan, dating back to the
Neolithic Era (4500 BC) and seemingly abandoned about 1,000 years ago.
Ancient Aramaic inscriptions can be found on the ruined city walls, including what
scholars believe may be the first written reference to King David.
Following your sightseeing you return to your hotel.
Scots Hotel B L D
DAY 4
Tiberias / Nazareth / Cana / Jericho / Jerusalem
After breakfast you are met by your guide and set out on your way to Nazareth,
the town where Jesus spent much of his life. There are numerous churches and
historical sites marking the miracles Jesus reputedly performed in this region
known as the ‘Cradle of Christianity.” During your time in Nazareth you visit the
Basilica of the Annunciation built on the spot where the Archangel Gabriel is
believed to have informed the Virgin Mary that God has chosen her to bear His
son.
3
Next you visit the Byzantine Church at Cana, where Jesus performed his first
miracle at the wedding and where some couples today like to renew their
wedding vows.
Your journey continues along the scenic Jordan Valley, the hub of the Holy Land
and a politically sensitive area. You pass through Jericho, the oldest
continuously inhabited city in the world. Afterwards you continue to Jerusalem,
the city of cities, capital of modern Israel.
While in Jerusalem you are accommodated at the famous King David Hotel.
Overlooking the ancient walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, the hotel is located in
the heart of the city. The King David is the foremost gathering place in Israel. It
is where people who make history rub shoulders with people who come to see it
made. The hotel’s comfortable rooms are equipped with cable television, Internet
and email connections, fax/modem/PC connections, as well as voicemail. The
hotel also offers a large outdoor pool and spa.
King David Hotel B L D
DAY 5
Jerusalem
A day of expeditions around the remarkable Old City begins with a drive to the
Mount of Olives for a wonderful view of Jerusalem. You then walk down the
Palm Sunday road to the Garden of Gethsemane with its ancient olive trees. This
is the place where Judas is believed to have betrayed Christ. You also see the
Church of All Nations, designed by Antonio Barluzzi, known as the architect of
the Holy Land for the numerous churches he built.
Next you enter the Old City at the
Dung Gate and walk through all
four quarters; Jewish, Christian,
Muslim and Armenian. You view
the Temple Mount, known by
Moslems as the Haram el Sharif
before visiting the Western Wall –
the Kotel. Here you may observe
worshippers praying towards the
Holy of Holies, and performing
rituals such as that of placing
written prayers into the seams of
the wall. You embark on a tour of the fascinating Western Wall Tunnels.
4
Following lunch you visit the Pool of Bethesda then walk along the Way of the
Cross, through the markets of the Christian and Muslim quarters. The Via
Dolorosa ends at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Here you can observe the
intense devotion and prayer, by many different denominations, at the site of the
Crucifixion and the Tomb of Christ.
Leave the Old City through the Armenian and Jewish Quarters via the Cardo. On
Mt. Zion you visit St. Peter in Gallicantu, which was built over the palace of the
High Priest Caiaphas. Your sightseeing also includes stops at the traditional
Tomb of King David and the Upper Room, both on Mt Zion.
King David Hotel B L D
DAY 6
Jerusalem / Bethlehem / Jerusalem
This morning you have the opportunity to visit a school for children who have
faced a variety of problems and traumas near Bethlehem. These children are
often shunned by their peers and relatives.
During your visit to the school you are divided
into small groups to interact with the students and
talk to them about their projects. This is an
invaluable time for them as it helps rebuild build
self-esteem, makes them feel appreciated and
opens new horizons to them. The visit also
provides support and recognition for the
dedicated staff and volunteers there.
This afternoon you explore Bethlehem, where
you visit the Church of the Nativity, which rests
over the cave where Jesus was born. It was
originally built by the Emperor Constantine in the
fourth century. You also visit the Shepherds’
Fields where you can see the remains of a major
Byzantine Monastery and the caves with soot
marks from the Shepherds’ fires.
Your day ends with a service at the Garden Tomb. After the service, you return
to Jerusalem and to your hotel.
King David Hotel B L D
5
DAY 7
Jerusalem / Masada / Dead Sea / Jerusalem
After breakfast you
travel overland along
the Dead Sea to
Masada, where you
take the cable-car up
to the last stronghold
of the Zealots. Some
2,000 years ago,
Roman legions
stormed one of the
two paths to the top of
this sandstone
mountain to reach the
Jewish Zealots
headquartered there.
After visiting Masada you stop at Qumran Caves, located on the Dead Sea’s
northern shore, and the place where the Dead Sea scrolls were found. Now a
national park, the caves were used for storage purposes by the Essenes, a
mystical sect that produced the Dead Sea Scrolls. You may wish to take a dip in
the Dead Sea to experience this natural wonder.
In the late afternoon, you have the option of visiting Yad Vashem – the Jewish
people’s memorial to the six million lives lost to the Holocaust. Containing the
world’s largest repository of information on the Holocaust, Yad Vashem is a
leader in Shoah education, commemoration, research and documentation. Here
you visit the museum and walk along the Street of the Righteous, dedicated to
the non-Jews who risked their lives during the Holocaust.
King David Hotel B L D
DAY 8
Jerusalem / Elah Valley / Jerusalem
Today’s sightseeing begins with a visit to the Israel Museum to see the fascinating
Model of Jerusalem as it was during the time of the Second Temple and the Shrine
of the Book, home of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Later, you leave Jerusalem for the Elah Valley. This was the border country
between the Israelites and Philistines. Bet Shemesh is the home of the Samson &
Delialah Biblical story, and further south is a newly discovered archaeological site
that dates to the time of King Saul. An expert archaeologist leads you through this
off-the-beaten-path site not yet open to the public.
6
For lunch enjoy a visit to a local wine maker, from a terrace overlooking a natural
wilderness. It is in this area that King David originated, and recent excavations
suggest increasing evidence that the David & Goliath legend probably originated
here. In ancient times this area was a center of wine making, and you today learn
how the Israelites made and stored wine as well as the ceremonial and symbolic
role it played in daily life and ritual. Later in the afternoon, you return to Jerusalem.

Departing Israel, you board your flight to Amman, Jordan (flight not included in
tour cost). Upon arrival into Queen Alia (Amman) International Airport you are
met by an A&K representative who assists you through Customs and

Shmeisani financial district, the Four Seasons Hotel Amman offers comfortable
guest rooms and its dramatic hilltop location presents breathtaking views of the
surrounding cityscape.
The remainder of the day is at leisure to relax or explore this city - built like
Rome, on seven hills – at your own pace.
Four Seasons Hotel Amman B
DAY 10
Amman / Mount Nebo / Madaba / Wadi Rum / Petra
This morning you travel through countryside rich in Biblical history as you make
your way along to Mount Nebo. Known as “Pisgah” in the Bible, Mount Nebo is
where it is said that says Moses lived out his remaining days and viewed the
Promised Land which he would never enter (Deuteronomy 34: 1-8).
Mount Nebo offers a fantastic view
westward, with a vista that includes
the Dead Sea, the West Bank, the
Jordan River, and, on a clear day,
Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Here
you find the “Church of Moses”*,
built by the first Christians, it’s a
Byzantine monastery constructed
at Siyagha. (*Please note: the
church itself is currently closed for
renovations.)
Outside the building is an enigmatic Serpentine Cross. The figure represents the
bronze serpent taken up by Moses in the desert, as well as the cross upon which
Jesus was crucified.
8
From here, you continue on to the proud city of Madaba – the “City of Mosaics” perched on an archaeological site with more than 4,000 years of history buried
beneath it. The quality and quantity of mosaic flooring has made Madaba one of
the most prominent cities in the world for mosaics.
St. George’s Church houses the world famous mosaic floor depicting a large
mosaic map of “The Holy Land” and centrally located on this mosaic floor is a
detailed map of Jerusalem as it was during the sixth century AD.
At the Church of the Apostles, at the southern entrance of the city, is a mosaic
floor attributed to the craftsman Salamanios, depicting the Sea, with the central
figure of a woman encircled with a selection of creatures, vegetation and an
inscription. Literally, hundreds of other mosaics from the fifth through the
seventh centuries are scattered throughout Madaba's churches and homes.
After enjoying lunch you continue
on to Wadi Rum, also known as
“Valley of the Moon”. The
landscape of Wadi Rum - with its
immense size, color and aweinspiring shapes - creates an
almost supernatural atmosphere.
Sunset provides the most
dramatic views of Wadi Rum as
the sun sinks below the horizon.
You explore in 4x4 vehicles the
rose-tinted mountains and
marvelous desert vistas where T.E. Lawrence (the famed Lawrence of Arabia)
lived with his Bedouin friends and allies during World War I. Bedouin camps are
evident in the Wadi, which is still home to a number of Bedouin families, who
welcome visitors with the hospitality and generosity that Bedouins are so famous
for. Today you enjoy tea with a Bedouin Family.
At days end you arrive in the ancient city of Petra and check in to your resort
hotel. Ideally located at the city entrance, the Mövenpick Resort Petra offers
nicely appointed guest rooms that feature subdued colors, harmonious
furnishings and comfortable seating areas.
Mövenpick Resort Petra B L

DAY 11
Petra
Today you have a full day to explore Petra – described by UNESCO as “One of
the most precious cultural properties of man’s cultural heritage.”
Major sites include the baths, markets, the Treasury (familiar to viewers of the
movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade), the Temple of the Winged Lions, the
Corinthian Tomb and the Palace Tomb.
Petra is set in a canyon that
has only one entrance, known
as the "Siq", a very narrow
passageway, which could be
easily defended against attack
by an invading army.
Dubbed by an English poet as
the "rose-red city half as old as
time", the ancient city of Petra
was constructed (it was
actually carved out of the very
rock of the mountains)
between 800 BC and 100 AD by Nabatean Arabs who came from northern
Arabia long before the arrival of either the Greeks or the Romans.
In this era Petra served not only as the Jordanian capital, but also virtually
inaccessible a fortress. In the first and second century, after the Romans took
over, the city reached the peak of its fame.
Once a rich merchant city and a stop for the camel caravans bringing spices, silk
and slaves from Arabia to the Mediterranean, Petra was lost for 1,000 years,
emerging from its veil of antiquity in 1812, when it was re-discovered by the
Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt. Today Petra is Jordan’s leading
tourist attraction.
Please note: during your visit to Petra there is ample time should you wish to
partake of an optional, non-guided visit to the Monastery. Please be aware that
the Monastery is only accessible on foot and involves a strenuous walk to and
from the main Petra site. Your guide is on hand to provide you with directions /
instructions and to discuss a meeting point for your return. As noted, this
excursion in non-guided and involves lengthy, strenuous walking. Therefore,
those wishing to participate should be of good physical condition.
10
This evening you may choose to partake in one of two options (not included in
tour cost).
Petra Kitchen
Tonight you experience the Petra Kitchen. Like any home kitchen, the Petra
Kitchen is a relaxed, informal atmosphere where you gather to prepare an
evening meal, working alongside local women under the supervision of an
experienced chef. You get an inside glimpse of the secrets behind the famous
regional cuisine of the Levant.
Great care has been taken to make the Petra Kitchen a truly Jordanian
experience - right down to the furnishings, crafted in Jordan, the tableware, all
produced by the Iraq al Amir Women's Co-operative.
The aprons and table linens are all hand-embroidered by the Jordan River
Foundation. A fun evening of learning ends with a delicious dinner as you enjoy
the fruits of your labor.
(The evening begins at 7:30 in the summer and 6:30 in the winter and lasts
approximately two and a half hours.)
Petra by Night
To see the rose-red city of Petra in the daylight is an awe-inspiring experience,
but to see it at night lit up by 1,800 flickering candles is truly magical. The special
aura of the ancient Nabatean trading empire comes to life as you stroll through
the mysterious Siq. You arrive at the stunning al-Khazneh (The Treasury) with
music and stories to help you experience Petra as the travel-weary traders of old
must have known it.
(The evening begins at 8:15 and lasts until approximately 11.00 pm; Monday,
Wednesday and Thursday evenings only.)
Mövenpick Resort Petra B L (D)
DAY 12
Petra / Kerak / Dead Sea
Today you return overland to Dead Sea.
En route you travel along the King’s
Highway and stop to explore Kerak, a
former Crusader village, built and
encircled with walls for defense. Look
around the fortress, complete with
underground galleries, secret
passageways and thick defensive walls
with narrow arrow slits – where
crusader archers held out bravely (but
in vain) for over 100 years.
11
After taking a break for lunch at a local restaurant you continue overland to the
Dead Sea area and your resort hotel. Set amid scenes of exquisiteness and
peace, the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar provides you the opportunity to enjoy its riches
where Marc Anthony, the Queen of Sheba, Aristotle and even Cleopatra once
strived to unravel mystery. Located at the lowest point on earth on the shores of
the Dead Sea, the hotel – which is named after the Sumerian Goddess of Love boasts spacious guest rooms, the largest private beach in Jordan and numerous
restaurants and bars.
The balance of the afternoon is at your leisure to settle in, enjoy your resort’s
facilities or to explore the Dead Sea area at your own pace. At over 1,300 feet
below sea level, the Dead Sea is infinite in what it has to offer.
Ever since the days of Herod the Great, people have flocked to the Dead Sea in
search of its curative secrets.
Due to high annual temperatures, low humidity and high atmospheric pressure,
the air is extremely oxygenated, and the high content of oxygen and magnesium
in the air make breathing a lot easier. With the highest content of minerals and
salts in the world, the Dead Sea water possesses anti-inflammatory properties,
and the dark mud found on the shores have been used for over 2,000 years for
therapeutic purposes.
Kempinski Hotel Ishtar B L
DAY 13
Dead Sea / Jerash / Amman / Depart
This morning you journey back as
you pay a visit to Jerash, a third
century city decimated by invasion
and earthquake and often called "the
Pompeii of the Middle East".
Located 29 miles north of Amman,
Jerash boasts the most complete
ruins of a provincial Roman city in
the world. Keep your eyes peeled
— the grooves of chariot wheels are
still visible in the cobbled streets.
Your journey comes to an end today as you return overland to Amman and on to
Queen Alia International Airport where your departure flight awaits.
