Ancient Israel and Jordan

Why You Will Love It!

In your tour of Israel and Amman, Jordan, you will be visiting a region that gave birth to religions and is rich in myth and history. Dating back to 7,000 years BC, the region offers a view of our history from the perspective of lifestyle. And this history is not monolithic; each occupier, the ancient Greeks, the Romans, the Ottomans all left their mark; evidence is plentiful in still-standing ruins and more importantly, the influence the occupying nations had on the region’s society. You will experience a juxta-positioning of societal norms from the Bedouins who still inhabit the desert to current-day marvels in science and technology.

After arriving at Tel Aviv, located on the Mediterranean, you will experience towns, cities and places with biblical names. Names like Galilee and Bethlehem, and other references. Then on to Amman and Petra; Petra is known for its Treasury, carved out of rock and an expansive area of caves that had been converted to comfortable family dwellings.

The region has it all! You get see today viewed from the lens of artifacts of the past. An amazing not-to-be-missed experience.

But that’s not all! Regardless of how extensively you have travelled, there is a quality to traveling with someone in their land of birth and youth that is quite unique.Tal McKelvey was born and grew up in Israel; Tal is a senior member of Team Clarkson, and will be your host on this tour.
