Holy Land Immersion
Make memories in Israel, with Petra just around the corner.
Join the kids on a scavenger
hunt in Jerusalem's Old City,
with mission packs and maps
provided. Ride camels in the
Judean Desert, joining "Abraham"
and his family in their tent for
dinner. This ten-day, familyfocused trip will make history and
tradition come alive for guests of
all ages, from floating in the Dead
Sea (with spa treatments for the
parents) and a nearby hike in the
oasis of Ein Gedi to rafting down
the Hatzbani River, cycling in
Jaffa and visiting a kibbutz. This
tour can be customized to include
meaningful ceremonies and
activities for children celebrating
a bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah.
Clockwise from top:
Ancient city of Petra;
explore the desert by
camel ride; salty shores of
the Dead Sea.
Wake up and enjoy snorkeling
the reef in the Red Sea resort
town of Eilat, and then embark
on a day trip to Petra, Jordan's
rock-carved Nabataean wonder.
The international excursion comes
with VIP transport and border
crossings - one of the perks of
this private, nine-day tour. Begin
with three days of customizable
adventures in Jerusalem, with
market walks and cooking
lessons, an archeological dig and
outings to Jericho or Bethlehem.
End your journey with two days
in Israel's largest city, Tel Aviv,
where the refined dining, trendy
shopping and festive beach scene
are complemented by visits to
museums and historic quarters.
If desired, arrange to see the
Ayalon Institute, a kibbutz that
secretly produced more than 2
million bullets for the Palmach
fighters in a factory concealed
26 feet underground.
