COVID-19 Statement: Due to the coronavirus the countries of Jordan, Egypt, and Israel as well as most of Europe are currently not allowing U.S. citizens admittance so we are having to postpone any tours. Please stay tuned as we are hoping to resume tours in the summer/early fall of 2021. (August, 2020)
Look at What People are Saying!
"Todd and I are not people of great means, but when we heard about the 2017 tour to Jordan/Egypt, we couldn't help but be intrigued. And when we found out the cost we agreed that it was a great value and it turned out to be our trip of a lifetime! The tour was expertly planned out and executed! We got plenty of exercise of our minds and bodies. We also felt very protected. We were given an excellent packing list. These people know what they are doing and if you follow their suggestions you will have everything you need to have a very comfortable and enjoyable trip! We count our experience as a favorite that we will never forget!" - Beth Adams
"I must say this experience with Bob and Stefanie was an absolute delight. It's as if you are safe in the hands of a local! Combined with their knowledge of the area as historians and archeologists, each new spot visited on the tour is packed full of interesting historical tidbits that made me always want to be within earshot. Having been to these countries multiple times, they have arranged the schedule in a very efficient manner while still maintaining a high emphasis on comfort and ease. The hotels were comfortable and clean, the restaurants were delicious and authentic, and each excursion was exciting and well executed. As in all foreign trips with big groups, bumps in the road are bound to happen but Bob and Stefanie handled each so quickly and calmly that it was hard to notice there was anything wrong in the first place! What struck me as unique with this trip, as opposed to others I've been on, is the sincerity that they had in wanting each of us to enjoy our experience. Sometimes in a tour group it can feel as if you are part of an abstract herd of sheep, but the personal interest that they gave to each of us made me feel as if I was traveling with my family." - Megan Bowman
"Ever since we were little girls (my sister and I), Ms. Elkins has taught us to get out and explore! To not be afraid of different cultures, but rather embrace their vibrant diversity, observe their daily rituals, enrich ones knowledge with historical treasures, and expand the palate with new delicacies! If you want just that and a chance at memories that will last you a lifetime, friendships that you will treasure from near and wide, and a chance to dive into a culture that is unbelievably amazing and different in its unique facets, this is the trip for you!" - Molly Coble
"My wife and I had the privilege of touring this magical part of the world in May, 2017. Bob and Stefanie put together a wonderful, small group adventure--including the mysteries of Petra, camel rides, the majestic pyramids of Giza and the sphinx, a hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings, and a 3-day cruise on the Nile, with stops at some of the true wonders of the ancient world. All this at a very reasonable cost! We couldn't have asked for better tour guides, who are both biblical archaeologists and know the people and the region very well from their frequent work there. I couldn't give them a higher recommendation--take this tour!" - Dennis Starkey
