Israel – Jordan

Join us to explore Israel and Jordan, where some of the world's oldest civilizations and cultures – and the rich history and traditions of three of its key religious faiths – converge.

Israel Jordan Tours
Dome of the Rock Jerusalem

Welcome to Israel & Jordan

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.

Jerusalem's Tower of David

The Tower of David in the heart of Old Jerusalem

What is today called the Tower of David (a.k.a. the Jerusalem Citadel) at the Old City walls stands on the site of fortifications that date back to the time of King Herod, destroyed and rebuilt numerous times over the centuries. First called the “Tower of David” (mistakenly) by the Byzantines, the structure we see today was mostly built by Muslim sultans between the 14th and 16th centuries; the 17th-century minaret is what many now refer to as the Tower itself. Today, it is the site of many special events, concerts and sound and light shows – like the one you’ll enjoy with Tauck following an exclusive dinner and dessert reception.

Ancient Petra

The ancient Nabataean city of Petra in Jordan

The ancient pink city of Petra in modern-day Jordan was carved out of rose-colored sandstone cliffs by its Nabataean builders perhaps as far back as the 4th century BCE, and abandoned sometime during the early Islamic era. Much of it remained hidden in the mountains and desert sands for thousands of years before its “discovery” by western explorers in the early 19th century. Today, its stunning temples, tombs and other key features like Al Khazneh (The Treasury) are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Jordan’s most popular historic attraction, which you’ll explore on foot and by horse cart.

Dome of the Rock

A sacred place in Old Jerusalem – the Dome of the Rock

Sheltering one of the holiest spots on Earth for three of the world’s great religions, the Dome of the Rock is a 7th-century Islamic shrine built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City. Its golden dome shelters the rock from which Muslims believe the Prophet Mohammed ascended to Heaven in his Night Journey. For Jews, it covers the holiest spot on Earth, the Foundation Stone of Solomon’s inner temple, which contained the Ark of the Covenant; also considered by many as the site of God’s creation of the world and of Abraham’s attempted sacrifice of his son, it is of great importance to Jews and Christians as well.
