Heritage Tours has added Israel and Jordan to its portfolio after witnessing a 20 percent increase in inquiries over the last two years from North American travelers.

These new tours will offer travelers a full cultural immersion in comfort and style, while combining adventure and behind-the-scenes excursions led by local experts. Ranging from a rejuvenation trip to the Dead Sea or a full immersion into the region’s culinary scene or history, there’s something to fit every traveler.

A few of the experiences your guests can look forward to on these new itineraries are: a journey behind the Western Wall tunnels with Israel’s leading archaeologists, an insider’s tour of the Israel Ballet led by the organization’s director and performers; a breadmaking lesson with Uri Scheft from Breads Bakery; a visit to the hidden Monastery of St. George where guests learn about Monastic life in the Judean Desert from a local monk; a whiskey tasking and feast on local fare at the Golan Heights Distillery, which produces Israel’s first single malt; a horseback ride through the Rose City of Petra and via a narrow core carved in sandstone with views of the Treasury; white-water rafting down the Jordan River; or and adventure experience as they rappel into the great “salt cellar” of the Colonel Salt Cave in Israel.

Each itinerary with Heritage Tours is uniquely customized in advance. However, a sample itinerary for an 11-day journey for two that combines both Israel and Jordan starts at $5,000 pp including daily breakfast and some dinners.
