Into The Promised Land: Egypt, Jordan & Israel Journey
Star Rating:

My wife and I just returned from a 16-day "Into the Promised Land Tour". The tour was extremely well organized. We had 39 people in our group. All guides that we had in Egypt, Jordan, and Israel were top-notch, extremely knowledgeable, very professional, and pleasant. We stayed very nice hotels, especially in Jordan. Food was great. I do recommend following AIT's recommendations about bottled water in Egypt and Jordan, if you do not wish to be on Imodium. Their customer service was excellent, especially Regan (she was great!). We had to postpone the trip multiple times due to Covid and had no problems with unanswered calls, being on hold, or having our emails ignored. Overall, we had a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this company without any reservation.

My wife and I went on AIT’s “Into the Promised Land Tour” and it proved to be a spellbinding experience. Both intellectually and spiritually uplifting, the tour gave us new personal insights on the historical background of the Egypt-Jordan-Israel region while providing us new biblical perspectives on the Old and the New Testament of the Bible. AIT certainly made it all easy for us as their expert tour guides (especially Barak B. in Israel!) and drivers were always there to support us. The help they provided in ensuring we had an awesome experience cannot be overstated. We will recommend AIT to anyone contemplating on taking a closer, more personal view of the bible as it relates to present day developments in the region.

We did the “Journey into the Promised Land” tour that started in Egypt, travelled to Jordan, and finished in Israel. I think this was the first such tour since COVID-19. Every thing was memorable. For me, climbing Mt. Sinai was the best experience. We had a great guide while in Israel, Barak Berkovich. The Via Dolorosa was very crowded and he led us through unscathed.

I am just returning from an 18 day “Into the Promise Land” Tour with AIT. I could not have had a better experience! AIT made getting through the airports and borders easy, visiting a wonderful selection of sites and having a truly meaningful experience! The largest differentiator for me is AIT’s team including their tour guides and bus drivers. The knowledge base, energy, organization, humor and accommodation (particularly of Barak, Ahmed, Shmilo) and each contact we had was nothing short of exceptional. The hotels were great too. I highly recommend American Israel Tours; look no further. 5 Stars!

Awesome trip. A superb 15 days, exploring Egypt, Jordan and Israel. This was our first trip abroad, and it was wonderful. We had expert tour guides in each country. The hotels were excellent, full of character representing that region and fun. The itinerary was full everyday - awe-inspiring ancient and holy sites, all presented in context with the journeys, places and significant events as written in the Bible. We visited the Pyramids, Catherine Monastery, Petra, Dead Sea, Sea of Galilee, Jordan River, Masada, and quite a few of the earliest Jewish, Roman and holy sites in Jerusalem, including Mount Olive, and Mount Zion. Our Israel Guide, Lital was incredible and very knowledgeable. She took her time to insure we all were following the her discussions and answered a lot of questions. She also showed a lot passion for the areas we visited. She took the time to explain the sites, the history and their purposes. There was always free time for us to explore the sites independently. Idell (Muhammad) our Egyptian guide was also very knowledgeable of the sites visited in Egypt. He was very interactive with the group and got to know us all. Super friendly and passionate guy. The trip can be exhausting at times, full with visiting sites. Set your expectations correctly of the tour, the cultures, regions, and the travel, and you will realize an experience of a lifetime.
