“The emerging destination of Oman is one of intriguing cultures, stunning natural beauty and a history dating back centuries”, said Lisa Bolton, General Manager Product, Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours. “When combined with Israel you get mystical, spiritual, complex, and contradictory, tours like no other.
“These newly emerging destinations are what our guests are looking for. As seasoned travellers looking for new experiences that go beyond the ordinary, our new range of itineraries that travel into the heart and soul of destinations such as Oman, Israel and Jordan offering something extraordinary.
“We have chosen tours and activities that provide insights into these truly unique destinations. In Jerusalem we offer a tour of the city with two tour guides – one Jewish Israeli and one Palestinian. Guests get to witness the revered sites of the Old City through their eyes, consider recent tensions, and ponder the city’s future. Guests get to stand before the famous ‘Wailing Wall’ and soak in the aura of the holiest of Jerusalem’s Jewish sites; go 4WD driving through the undulating dunes of Oman’s Wahiba Desert, stopping at Bimah sinkhole, a spectacular limestone crater filled with shimmering blue green water.
