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.

The Middle East is living, breathing proof of an old maxim: you don’t
know, until you go. Forget the headlines and the hyperbole; this is the
cradle of civilisations, an ancient land emerging as a modern power, with
the money, culture and panache to back it up. Ride camels with Bedouin
tribespeople across the dunes of the Sahara, haggle for gold in the souqs
of downtown Amman, cruise the Nile beneath the white sail of a felucca
or float forever in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea. Wherever you
go, three things will follow: the faint scent of cloves and camel, the
echoing call to prayer and the smiles of people that call this place home.
