The trip was fantastic and we saw some great sites. My only slight criticism is the fact that we were quoted entrance fees that we paid at the beginning of the trip but to see things fully and take pictures we realistically paid more . I think it would have be better to inform us of this in the trip notes somewhere to avoid disappointment. The trip was great though and more than met my hopes and expectations. Sherif was fantastic. He went above and beyond and always with a smile - it was definitely genuine too. He had great knowledge and made it a great trip. ”
Before leaving for this holiday we were feeling a little apprehensive about touring these countries. We had nothing to fear, we felt extremely safe the whole trip. After learning about ancient Egypt at school many years ago it was enlightening to experience this as reality. Our tour guide ensured that we saw Egypt through "his eyes" his love for his country and in depth knowledge certainly shone through as he shared his knowledge with our group.
The tour of Egypt allowed us to experience what Egypt had to offer. The overnight train from Cairo to Aswan whilst not to everyone's taste was something to be experienced and we can say that we have done that. The food was amazing and the people extremely friendly and accommodating. We were a tour group of 14 people aged from 20 to 77 and we all just clicked Do not hesitate to visit Egypt.
Jordan was also full of amazing sights and the night at the Wadi Rum was another fun experience, our night time celebrations even brought some brief rain to the desert!
Our last stop was Israel and the border crossing was easy. Jerusalem is a beautiful city and our guide was very good. In hindsight we wished we had added an extra day at the end of the tour.”
The tour exceeded all of my expectations and in majority it was due to Medo our guide. I have an ancient history background and I just found it so easy to ask him any questions about the history or the monuments because I knew he would know the answers. He also ensured the tour ran smoothly and I never felt like I didn’t know where I was going or what I was supposed to be doing because he made it all so easy. Egypt itself was just incredible and I liked the different experiences I had there such as staying on the felucca and doing the overnight train. I experienced the same in Jordan and Israel and my guides there was also extremely good. It truly was the trip of a lifetime and I will 100% be recommending on the go to everyone!”

Best known as the home of Jesus and the Virgin Mary, Nazareth contains a number of Christian holy sites. The Old City has a charming architectural beauty with narrow cobbled lanes just begging to be explored, while modern day Nazareth on the other hand is a vibrant Arab city with a small town feel. Make sure you visit the Basilica of the Annunciation, St Gabriel’s Church and the Greek Catholic Synagogue-Church.
Once one of nature’s best kept secrets, today the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea attract throngs of travellers every year in search of its therapeutic properties and astounding beauty. No trip to Israel would be complete without rejuvenating body and soul here – bob in its warm turquoise waters, slap on some mineral-rich Dead Sea mud and while away the day.
Best known for its Gospel associations with Jesus Christ, the Sea of Galilee is a natural pilgrimage sites for Christians, but there is so much more to it. As the largest freshwater lake in Israel with beaches, hiking trails and water sports, the area is also a prime recreational spot. Travellers will find the ancient fishing village of Capernaum and the holy city of Tiberias on its shores too.
