Why Jordan & Israel family tours
Israel is a travel destination like no other. Just the name conjures up images of biblical prophets, endless deserts, and ancient sites, a place where the bible is your map. But Israel is so much more than that – it is a collection of peoples, cultures, activities and sights that, after an Israel family tour, will leave you dazzled and will provide a spiritual and emotional journey you will never forget.

This is a dramatically diverse country. In one day on a family trip to Israel you could hike, ski, swim, participate in an archeological dig, climb a mountain fortress, visit Crusader castles, ride camels in the desert, or take a jeep trip through contemporary battle sites. Everywhere in this energetic, dynamic country you will witness the stark contrasts between old and new, ancient and modern. From Jerusalem, radiating with spirituality and history to the pulsating metropolis of Tel Aviv, from the arid Negev desert to the spectacular Sea of Galilee, you will be bewitched by this country of incredible beauty, variety, history and incredible travel adventures.

After family trips to Israel there is Jordan, home to mysterious lost cities, Lawrence of Arabia and the spectacular Wadi Rum desert. Petra, considered with Machu Picchu and Angkor Wat to be one of the great ancient cities and now officially one of the ‘New Seven Wonders of the World’ will take your breath away, while the warmth and hospitality of the local population will forever endear you to this romantic and epic country.
