When researching tours for Jordan, it is common to also see combined packaged tours of Jordan and Israel.
Unlike Jordan, I have traveled to Israel and I didn’t love it.
In 2010, I went on a cruise with Royal Caribbean called Holy Land cruise. It was basically a Mediterranean cruise with Israel.
The cruise also stopped in Sorrento, Athens, Chania and Ephesus.
At the time, I didn’t enjoy Israel because the tour guide said most of the sights were rebuilt by the Franciscans. This took the luster out of the experience.
Also, we were there for two days and saw everything. I was not able to absorb what I saw until I came back.
Finally, the trip was not tailored to a Protestant Christian. Therefore, I saw a bunch of sites for which I had zero context.
I recently, read an article from Wendy Perrin about this issue. She suggests working directly with a tour guide such as Joe Yudin that understands how to plan such a trip.
For those that have a religious interest in Israel, you should also research Israel trips for Protestants or Catholics.
If you have never been to Israel and are not religious, a Jordan/Israel tour or a cruise that highlights Israel may work.
