Adventure awaits on this 26-day guided tour. Travel to the vibrant city of Tel-Aviv and see its Habima National Theatre, Rabin Square and Carmel Market, then head to Jaffa to walk the narrow lanes of its artists’ quarters — and buy a souvenir, if you choose. In Amman, see a cooperative that teaches local women craftmanship and skills. Picturesque Petra awaits with its rose-red gorges that lead the way to temples carved into the towering cliffsides. Sail the Nile on a felucca — a wooden boat with billowing canvas sails — with a local sailor. Indulge in traditional high tea at the historic Old Cataract Hotel. In Luxor, meet a local family who will share the secrets of authentic Egyptian breadmaking. And take in sweeping views of Cairo from the city’s Citadel, a medieval Islamic-era fortress.
