Israel: Timeless Wonders

When: November 01, 2018 - November 12, 2018 (iCal)

Description

 

“It was a terrific introduction, causing me to want to return and experience more.”

 

Few places on earth stir the heart, mind, and soul like Israel. On our 12-day, small-group adventure, we’ll explore the remarkable culture and miraculous nature of this land.  We’ll get to know Israelis in all walks of life, from artists to kibbutzniks. We’ll eat (and learn to cook) their foods, drink their wines, and shop in their marketplaces. We’ll visit sites that have shaped the course of humanity — including the caves of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the streets of Nazareth, and the mountain fortress of Masada. With the help of expert guides, we’ll seek the true meaning of the sights we see. If we wish, we can delve even deeper, with a five-day, post-program option in Jordan, featuring Amman and the extraordinary Petra necropolis.

Comprehensive pricing: Round-trip air, accommodations, extensive meal plan, numerous excursions, gratuities, and more are all included. Space is limited. Book soon.
