What makes this tour special

We will begin our time together in Jericho, visiting ancient sites from the Old and New Testaments.  Not only the history of God’s work in these places, but God’s work in the current Holy Land, and what the future holds as Jesus lives and calls for ongoing ministry will provide a deeper connection to the sources of our faith. 

Then Our Adventure continues to Jordan Visiting Jarash, north of the capital Amman. Inhabited since the Bronze Age, it’s known for the ruins of the walled Greco-Roman settlement of Gerasa just outside the modern city. These include the 2nd-century Hadrian’s Arch, the Corinthian columns of the Temple of Artemis, and the huge Forum’s oval colonnade. Then will visit Mt. Nebo the place where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land.

Then to Petra, the Red Rock City. Petra is considered the eighth wonder of the world, a complete city carved in colored sandstone, rediscovered in 1812. An unforgettable experience on horseback or chariots through a narrow canyon will take you to the Nabatean city of Petra to visit the Treasury, the theater.
