We also unveiled Excursionist add-ons to select vacation experiences around the globe, which are personal guided tours such as "In the Footsteps of Monarchy" in London or "Biking with a Sommelier" in Tuscany.
Do any of Luxury Link's guided vacations and tours appeal to you?
Thanks Ben. Will do. Had planned to go a few years ago for a Bat Mitzvah of our godchild. Missed the trip as we were in South America!! Which area do you like best in Israel? Did you visit Petra from there?
Hi bonniejoy03 - Personally, I love the vibrancy and cosmopolitan air of Tel Aviv...plus its beaches. Jerusalem has a completely different feel - a much more religious city, everything awash in white stone and historical/religious treasures at virtually every turn. The Old City will make you feel like you've stepped back in time, especially at night when it's rather quiet.
I visited Petra last year on a day trip from Eilat, at the southern tip of Israel on the Red Sea (pretty good SCUBA diving there). Petra is one of those must-visit places in the world, and Jordan has taken great care to preserve it. The complex is quite vast and only accessible by foot or horse/camelback; I'd actually recommend overnighting in the area and seeing Petra over two days, especially if you're there in the spring or summer. I don't think I need to tell you that the Jordanian desert is incredibly hot.....
