    This captivating tour allows you to experience for yourself the historic locations and stunning scenery of the places where it is believed Jesus lived, preached and performed his miracles. Boarding your coach at the pier, you'll enjoy a picturesque drive from Haifa to the top of Mount Carmel. From this advantageous view point, you'll be treated to spectacular panoramic views of Haifa and its glistening bay. After your photo stop, it's on to Nazareth - the place where Jesus spent his early years.


    Upon arrival in this fascinating town filled with rich historical significance, you'll have the opportunity to explore the amazing Basilica of the Annunciation, one of Christendom's most revered shrines and the largest church in the Middle East. The Basilica is built on the same site where the Archangel Gabriel revealed to Mary that she would be the mother of the Messiah. Amongst the mesmerizing sites you'll see here is the altar, which incorporates a portion of the grotto where Mary had lived. A remarkable 170-foot- high cupola that rises high above the upper church adds to the Basilica's grandeur and allows the interior to be illuminated with natural light. You will also find a significant collection of magnificent mosaics, ceramic reliefs and other marvelous works of art from around the world adorning the vast interior.


    Re-boarding your coach, you'll travel through Cana, the place where Jesus performed his first miracle of turning water into wine and then head off along the panoramic seashore to the Yardenit baptismal sight where the River Jordan separates from the Sea of Galilee. In this naturally scenic and symbolic setting, pilgrims from around the world come to perform baptismal ceremonies. On your relaxing ride back to the pier in Haifa, you'll view Mount Tabor, the traditional site of the Transfiguration where Jesus appeared to his disciples in radiant light while speaking with Moses and Elijah.

    Explore a somewhat remote area supposedly inhabited by elves and hear tales of how the little “hidden people” have come to the aid of Icelanders. The farther you venture along the winding road from Seyðisfjörður, the more dramatic and isolated the terrain. You will see just how secluded this part of Iceland can be while pausing at Njarðvíkurskriður.


    A cliffside cross there marks the spot where, according to legend, a monster that attacked travelers fell into the sea. You will hear more folkloric tales in the teeny village of Bakkagerði and at the rocky hill Álfaborg, where locals claim the queen of Icelandic elves lives. One of the country’s foremost 20th-century artists painted the altarpiece at a nearby church. Still, few sights compare to Hafnarhólmi, a birdwatcher’s paradise. The observation platform will afford you an excellent view of nesting puffins, fulmars and kittiwakes; the latter being loud gulls named for their nasal “ki-ti-waak” callnotes.

    Start your journey with an introduction to the port of Sydney and a panoramic drive through the historic North End. Once acquainted with the area, step back in time to 1744 and experience the Fortress of Louisbourg—the largest fortified town outside of Europe. Louisbourg was once a thriving seaport and capital of Île Royale (Cape Breton Island). —the third busiest harbour in North America and one of France's key centers of trade and military strength in the New World. Situated along a rocky Atlantic coastline, the site now serves as an exciting and entertaining lesson in Canadian, American, French and British history. You’ll see a selection of buildings and exhibits as costumed actors reenact the lives of specific individuals residing here during the pre-siege era.


    Experience the life of a military officer as you visit the home of Captain and Madame DeGannes. Discuss household duties with the servant in the Engineer’s Residence and discover some tip and tricks for open-hearth cooking (which every domestic cook needs to know); then wander up to the spectacular chapel in the King’s Bastion. If you’re interested, stop and talk to a soldier about his guard duty, living conditions, security and (most interestingly) diet.

    Enjoy a wonderful ride in the clear lagoon of Moorea with great views of the island's sharp mountain peaks, lush green valleys and picturesque coastal shoreline, then enjoy a typical island lunch, relax on a delightful beach or enjoy the warm tropical waters of French Polynesia.


    Boarding your boat at the pier, you'll set-off across the turquoise waters of Moorea, en route to a gorgeous white sandy islet that is surrounded by crystal clear water. The waters here are shallow enough for you to walk right off the boat onto the pristine beach where you will have approximately three hours at your leisure.


    During your visit, you can relax and soak up the sun, or enjoy some great snorkeling and discover Moorea's amazing underwater world with its colorful fish, flora and fauna. There may even be some inquisitive stingrays to welcome you and in exchange for a piece of fish, they just might delight you by dancing gracefully around you.


    Following a barbeque lunch on the beach, you will have more time to enjoy the refreshing waters here or further relax on the beach while being entertained with local music and a coco demonstration.

    Journey back into Visby's past during a walking tour through this Medieval city, and a visit to Gotland's Fornsalen Museum.


    Visby, the Capital of Gotland, boasts a swashbuckling history that began in the Viking Age, and was followed by a flourishing Medieval period and the growth of the powerful Hanseatic League. Today, however, Visby is best known as the Town of Roses and Ruins, and one of Sweden's most popular vacation resort destination.


    From the inner harbor proceed to Almedalen, the site of the Hanseatic Harbor. See the powder tower, the oldest remaining structure in Visby and nearby, stroll through the lovely Botanical Gardens. Continue your walk through the narrow winding, medieval streets to the evocative ruins of one of the medieval churches. Visit the Cathedral of St. Mary's which at one time belonged to the Germans and is the only one of the town's many medieval Churches still in use. Via Stora Torget, the main square, continue to Gotland's History Museum. In the museum, see the world's largest Viking Silver hoard and get an in-depth insight into all aspects of life on Gotland through the ages.

    Explore the enchanting town of Tarifa at the southern tip of Spain and then cruise the Strait of Gibraltar looking for the many whales and dolphins that frequent these waters.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for an immensely scenic drive south, passing through small villages and the gorgeous countryside that characterizes the southernmost part of Spain. In time, you will reach Tarifa, a charming town overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea.


    A former Roman settlement, Tarifa feels wonderfully casual and its narrow, cobbled streets invite exploration. As you stroll through the most historical part of town, you can expect to see St. Matthew Church, white-washed houses adorned with wrought iron and sections of the original castellated city walls.


    Continuing on to the waterfront, you will board a boat designed for whale watching and cruise into the Strait of Gibraltar. Across the water in Morocco, you will see the Rif Mountains, which stretch along the Mediterranean so closely that they make much of the land unsuitable for agriculture or development.


    Seven different species of whales and dolphins live in these waters, including pilot whales, sperm whales and striped dolphins. Chances are, you will see these magnificent creatures breaching the surface as they feed in the nutrient-rich waters. The experience will be unforgettable and well worth discussing over lunch on your own during free time in Tarifa.
