In these neighboring Middle Eastern nations where the cornerstones of three of the world’s major faiths converge, you’ll immerse in thousands of years of history and culture at the traditional center of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In Jerusalem – where a private Tauck reception precedes a spectacular sound and light show at the Tower of David – discover the Western Wall, the Dome of the Rock, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and much more. Explore the ancient red-rock city of Petra, the little town of Bethlehem, the fortress of Masada and Mt. Nebo. Float in the Dead Sea, enjoy a Bedouin feast (and a sword dance), and sail on the Sea of Galilee aboard a replica of a 2,000-year-old fishing boat.
