DAY 1: Jerusalem:

Shalom and welcome to Israel! Upon arrival at Ben Gurion Airport, you will be greeted by an OUTstanding Travel Representative, who will assist you with your baggage and escort you to transfer to your hotel in Jerusalem.
At night, feel free to go on an adventure! We suggest exploring the wonderful Jaffa Street and Mahane Yehuda Market, or strolling around the Old City.
Overnight in Jerusalem
DAY 2: Jerusalem:
Following an authentic and delicious Israeli breakfast at your hotel, get ready for a day of touring!
Meet our OUTstanding tour guide at the hotel and walk toward the Old City of Jerusalem.
Travel back in time to the beautiful Old City through one of its Ancient gates and visit historical marvels and spiritual landmarks such as King David’s Tomb and the Room of the Last Supper, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Via Delarosa, the Arab Market, and the recently restored Roman Cardo. Find yourself wandering through the charming Armenian and Jewish quarters, and see the sacred Western Wall, standing for thousands of years, before continuing on to the Christian quarter.
Prior to returning to your hotel, visit Yad Vashem, Israel’s primary memorial and museum to the victims of the Holocaust.

Overnight in Jerusalem 
DAY 3: Masada & the Dead Sea:

After enjoying an early breakfast and checking out of your hotel, plunge south to the lowest point on earth and ascend by cable car to the legendary mountain fortress of Masada. The ancient mountain fortress of Masada was built in the year 30 BCE by King Herod, whose architectural feats have left their mark throughout Israel. At the beginning of the great revolt against Rome in the year 68 CE, Masada was conquered by a group of Jewish zealots, and Masada became their last stronghold. In the year 72, the Romans besieged Masada and succeeded in reaching the steep fortress after constructing a huge earthen ramp on its western side. In the year 73, the 960 Jewish zealots living at the top of Masada chose to commit suicide rather than to fall into the hands of the Romans. Their deeds left behind a saga of courage, heroism, and martyrdom.
After a bit of shopping at the Ahava Dead Sea Factory Shop, drive to the shores of the Dead Sea and spend the afternoon enjoying the buoyant therapeutic waters of this mineral-rich sea, and absorbing the rejuvenating properties of its world famous mud.
Finally, check in at your Tel Aviv destination for your first of many overnights in one of the hippest cities on Earth! Tel Aviv is a world hub and capital of gay vibrancy and pride, a paradise combining golden beaches with a world-class nightlife, incredible culture and cuisine, and fantastic listed Bauhaus architecture.
Overnight in Tel Aviv
DAY 4: Tel Aviv & Jaffa:

Kick off your morning with an OUTstanding Travel representative.

Located in the heart of the White City of Tel Aviv, Rothschild Boulevard is a commercial center, with major financial institutions lining the street, a cultural center, with the main theater and concert hall of Tel Aviv, a culinary center, with tens of top restaurants, and a leisure center. Visit the lovely Neve Tzedek, the first neighborhood of Tel Aviv, built in 1887, and the historical sites of Old City Jaffa, one of the oldest port cities in the world; soak up the ancient ruins and walk along the Artist's Quarter. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the nightlife and exquisite culture with our unique Gay perspective.

DAY 8: Petra, Jordan:

After breakfast, travel to Petra, the Nabatean capital, which is carved into the rock, and situated in the far end of Wadi Musa. The road leading there meanders through the narrow, deep, winding, and breathtaking Siq (the shaft) at the end of which the striking splendor of the burial shrine Al Khazneh (the treasury) is revealed. We will stop to take pictures and then arrive at our ultimate destination, the ancient and picturesque city of Petra.

Sandstones and granite rocks make up this vast valley, the largest in the Hashemite kingdom. Wadi Rum has also been made famous by Lawrence of Arabia, who wrote his book "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" during his stay there. (It is also the site where the film "Lawrence of Arabia" was made).
