Recommended Tour Company for Israel & Jordan

We are planning to travel to Israel and Jordan from December 22nd and January 5th, 2009. I will appreciate any recommendation of a tour company that will help us. Also any other information regarding weather, places to go, hotels, etc. will be great. Thanks.

Tell us something about yourselves and your interests. There is so much variety in Israel, and no doubt in Jordan, that it's impossible to assist you in planning unless we have some idea why you're coming and what you're hoping to do or gain from the trip. For example, you will get very different advice if you tell us you are deeply religious (of whichever religion) vs. an archeology fan vs. a food-wine-music lover.

Our interest is certainly historical , and seeing the birthplace of some of the world's major religions. We want to have a fun time as well, but mostly a tour of the places mentioned in the bible/Qran/Torah.

We are Christian but not religious

That's a rather tall order. Look at the gate 1 itinerary. The company has good reviews here. If you have more specific questions, we are here to help.

Thanks, perhaps our post sounded a bit more ambitious than we meant it to be.

The Gate 1 itinerary sounds very good, but their departure dates are hard to accommodate for us, for that particular tour -- we've sent them an email to see if they would consider opening another date, but in the meantime, if anyone knows of any other operator they would care to recommend, we would certainly appreciate it.

By the bye, we are also wondering how crazy it is that we are aiming to go in December? we know April is the best time of year for places like Tel Aviv, but we live in a tropical climate, thus for us the sun&shine aspect of the trip is not as important (we don´t want to be under torrential rain for our trip, though)

We thank you all for you kind help

It's not crazy but sincerely we hope you are going to find a very rainy weather, since it's one of the few chances we have of replenishing our rather low water reservoirs. Have a look at past posts - there are reviews of other general tours operators which might fit your bill. You can also send personal messages to people who are posting now and mention going with specific tour operators - their research might help yours.

Good luck!
