Further trip information

Day 1: Arrive in Jerusalem. Arrive in Tel Aviv Airport and make your way to the ancient city of Jerusalem. Head straight out to explore the rose-tinted Old Quarter and jaw-dropping archaeological sites. This evening, get to know your new travel buddies over a drink or two.

Day 2: Jerusalem tour & craft beer. Take a guided tour of the Old City, including the Via Dolorosa, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Western Wall. After all that history, get a taste of modern life with a visit to the Yehuda Market (AKA the Shuk), and a local craft beer café. First round’s on us!

Day 3: Jerusalem to Wadi Rum (Jordan). Cross the border into Jordan, stopping at Al Safi Kitchen for a delicious Jordanian lunch en route to the jaw-dropping Wadi Rum. Arrive in your tented camp in time for a traditional Bedouin meal under the stars, and fireside stories from your Bedouin hosts.

Day 4: Wadi Musa & Petra. Head to Petra early today. Half-built, half-carved into the rose-coloured rock, and surrounded by mountains, it’s a ‘pinch me I’m dreaming’ kind of place. Take a guided tour through the highlights, including the Siq Gorge, Pharaoh's Castle and the iconic Al-Khazneh. Then enjoy a free afternoon in the markets and streets of Wadi Musa.

Day 5: Wadi Musa to Amman. Head to lively Amman today where we’ll take a tour of the highlights, including the Citadel and the Roman amphitheatre, before leaving you to explore at your own pace. After dark, head to Rainbow Street, or local favourite Abdali Boulevard, for a big night out.

Day 6: Amman to Tel Aviv. Travel back into Israel today, stopping for a float in the Dead Sea. Rub yourself in the healing mud, and take some epic selfies before heading to Bethlehem, where you’ll see the Church of the Nativity. We’ll also stop at Banksy’s West Bank wall mural, and the Walled Off hotel, before arriving in Tel Aviv. This evening, get ready to go ‘out out’ – the nightlife here is wild!

Day 7: Tel Aviv. You’ve got a full day to explore this Middle Eastern gem. Soak up the sun on the sandy beach, explore the street art, visit the hip Jaffa neighbourhood, or check out the ‘White City’. Make sure you’re on the waterfront for sundowners though – the sunsets here are legend.

Please note: Some attractions are not open on Shabbat. If you have a particular museum in mind to visit while you are in Tel Aviv, we recommend staying another day or two.

Day 8: Tel Aviv and trip end. All good things come to an end. Pack your bags and say your goodbyes or stay on for a few more days in sunny Tel Aviv!

On entry, British visitors are granted leave to enter for a period of up to 3 months. For this trip, the Jordanian visa will be organized at the border. Not all nationalities automatically qualify for this visa on arrival, and it is vital that you contact your local embassy or consulate for updated information according to your passport nationality.

Covid safety

This trip is designed with your safety and wellbeing in mind. As a result of Covid-19, many of our suppliers and partners around the world are introducing new policies and procedures surrounding health and safety in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. As the state of travel is evolving these new safety measures will adapt over time, and will be different for each trip. Here are some of the changes you may see on your trip:

Arrival safety meetings
Most trips have an arrival meeting on the first day where the guide or local team will run through the trip, the safety protocols, and to answer any questions you may have. Now more than ever it is important you arrive in time for these meetings.

Proof of vaccination or negative covid test
For the safety of all travellers, at the start of some trips you may be required to show evidence that you are fully vaccinated (14 days after your second dose) and/or show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the tour start date in order to join the programme.

Updated hygiene and safety procedures
Our suppliers and partners have health and safety procedures in place on all of our trips. These protocols will be updated and adapted as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, dependent on local restrictions and laws.

Transport and accommodation choices
Our suppliers and partners choose the accommodation and transport on our trips very carefully, and you may see a change to what would normally be used as a response to the outbreak. This may involve such changes as enhanced use of private transport or quieter accommodation.

Trained and knowledgeable staff
Our staff in the UK are trained to help you with your trip before you depart and answer any questions you may have. In addition, the local team and guides on our trips are there to help with any health and safety concerns and to ensure our trips run safely and smoothly.

Reduced group sizes
Some trips will run with reduced group sizes to start with. You may find that trips are more intimate and chilled, whilst still being packed with fun and adventure.

Your guide or the local team will be on hand to help you seek medical attention should you require it during your trip. As medical facilities and standards can vary around the world, you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place before you depart to cover you for any medical emergencies.

24/7 emergency support
We operate an emergency phone line for our travellers abroad. This is operated by a UK based member of staff 24/7 if you have a genuine emergency or urgent matter that you need attending.

It is important that you take measures to make travelling safer for yourself and others around you. Ensure you frequently wash your hands, cover your face when you sneeze and cough, bring and use your own hand sanitiser and facial coverings/masks, and enable social distancing where necessary. You should also ensure you listen to the instructions and guidance of the local team at all times, and follow all local laws and restrictions.
