This comprehensive tour is the ultimate luxury journey through Egypt, Israel and Jordan. Each day, touring is with your own private guide and accommodation is at the best hotels in each location.

Begin in Cairo. Our Egypt specialists have left no stone unturned in their quest to uncover the city’s most interesting cultural attractions, neighborhoods and markets—our tours offer the most in-depth, sophisticated Cairo touring available. In addition to visiting well-known attractions such as the Citadel, Egyptian Museum, Hanging Church and Khan al-Khalili bazaar, also tour our favorite neighborhoods filled with beautiful Fatimid, Mameluke, Ottoman, Coptic and Art Deco architecture; well-preserved medieval residences formerly occupied by wealthy merchants; fascinating markets and shopping streets; and smaller, lesser-known museums dedicated to Islamic art, applied arts, Egyptian culture, Impressionist paintings and more.

One day, take a private excursion to the impressive Pyramids of Giza. Then fly to Abu Simbel and explore some of the most beautiful Pharaonic temples in existence at the first light of day­—the most beautiful time to visit. Cruise the Nile River aboard a luxury boat. Our travelers stay in a top suite and have their own private Egyptologist to accompany them on private tours of the extraordinary archaeological sites such as the Temple of Philae in Aswan, Temple of Horus in Edfu and Valleys of the Kings and Queens in Luxor. Upon request, arrangements can be made to tour monuments usually closed to the public or museums outside of opening hours. Return to Cairo for one night before departing for Jordan.

Fly to Amman, Jordan and transfer to Petra. En route, tour historically important sites along the King’s Highway: Mt. Nebo, with its Memorial Church of Moses containing exquisite ancient mosaics, and boasting gorgeous panoramic views of the Jordan River, Dead Sea and beyond; the famed Mosaic Map housed in a church in Madaba; and the impressive Crusader fortress of Kerak.

Later, arrive in Petra, one of the world’s most impressive archaeological sites. The Nabataeans created this ancient city between the 3rd century BC and the 1st century AD, sculpting monuments and tombs into the surrounding mountainside—the most spectacular of which is the pink-hued Treasury. Learn about the history, beliefs, architecture and daily life of the Nabataeans during private touring of this fascinating ancient wonder.

Continue to the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar, the most luxurious resort on the Dead Sea. You will have ample time to enjoy the resort’s lavish facilities, including an Anantara Spa, several restaurants and pools, and private beach—where you may relax with a float in the salt- and mineral-laden water, famous for its buoyancy and therapeutic qualities.

Next, tour Jerash, one of the best preserved Roman cities in the Middle East, before crossing the border into Israel. Stay in the Galilee region at a luxury spa resort in Rosh Pina. Enjoy private touring around the Sea of Galilee (also known as Lake Tiberias and Lake Kinneret), an area renowned for its beautiful landscapes and proximity to important historical and biblical sites. Opt to browse art galleries in Rosh Pina, sample wines at local vineyards, visit a kibbutz, or tour the mystical town of Safed (Tfzat), one of the four holy cities of the Talmud and the birthplace of Kabbalah.

Continue to Jerusalem, where your expert private guide will bring the city and its incredible, multi-layered history alive. One of the world’s most historic cities—the entire Old City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site—Jerusalem is a fascinating mix of cultures and religions. Visit different neighborhoods according to your interests, such as the Jewish Quarter, Christian Quarter, Muslim Quarter, Armenian Quarter and Temple Mount. See highlights such as the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Via Dolorosa, ancient synagogues, bazaars, and atmospheric narrow streets lined with galleries and private homes. Visit Jerusalem’s most important museums, such as the Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum and the Israel Museum. See the Mount of Olives and the old city ramparts. Also tour the Mahane Yehuda Market, which is a great place to sample local culinary specialties such as pomegranate juice, falafel, chocolate rugelach, almond pastries and halvah, as well as locally grown olives and figs. During leisure time, enjoy your hotel’s extensive resort facilities and beautiful, park-like grounds.

If desired, we can arrange many special interest activities around Jerusalem, such as taking a private market tour and cooking class with a renowned food expert, touring the ancient City of David, touring the excavation tunnels under the Western Wall, joining an archaeological dig, walking through the city’s ancient underground water tunnels, planting a tree, specialized shopping, or visiting the village of Ein Kerem to experience its local food, wine, art and religious sites. Alternatively, we can also arrange expert-led excursions to Bethlehem and Jericho.

Conclude in Tel Aviv and experience the best of Israel’s largest city: the Neve Tzedek neighborhood, UNESCO-listed Bauhaus architecture, Old Jaffa, the Carmel Market, and museums such as the Eretz Israel Museum and the Museum of the Jewish Diaspora. If desired, we can also arrange a tour of the fascinating Ayalon Institute, a kibbutz that hid a secret underground ammunition factory. Additional options in Tel Aviv include specialized shopping, visiting the Design Museum Holon, strolling the port district or fashionable HaTachana, spending time on the beach, and enjoying the city’s excellent restaurants.
