It’s also the starting point for a number of tours outside the city. Jordan is a popular destination, and we offer a single day tour of Petra, or a 2 day tour of Petra and Wadi Rum. Or you can also combine a tour of the city with a visit to Bethlehem to really immerse yourself in biblical history. Tel Aviv is a modern bastion of culture, art, and the finest Israeli dining. Explore the city with a Tel Aviv street art tour or the urban tour that explores the city’s architecture, food, and street art. Or escape the city and head north on a day tour to Capernaum, Yardenit, and the Galilee to experience a more historic side of the country.
