Luxor

Guests will then continue to a local farm along the Nile, where guests can sip freshly brewed tea and discuss the Egyptian way of life with locals. In the evening, a sound and light show at Karnak Temple will be presented for guests.

Petra – Dead Sea – Madaba

Once in Jordan, guests will connect with a local women’s community in Petra where they can learn traditional rug weaving. Guests will then go on to Bethany Beyond the Jordan, the venerated site of Jesus Christ’s baptism.
