Anyone done a Gate 1 tour of Israel and Jordan

I have never taken a Gate 1 tour, but looking at one for 13 days for Israel and Jordan for an amazing price.

Can anyone who has taken such a tour comment?

My husband and I have done many Gate 1 Tours to many different parts of the world, but not Israel and Jordan. We have enjoyed every tour and like the people we have met on these trips. Accommodations have always been great and for the most part, the guides have been wonderful. Gate 1 is an inexpensive way to travel to places you might not want to visit on your own.

I've taken 2 Gate 1 Tours, one to Lisbon and Spain and the other to the Balkans. They are a great deal for the money and the itineraries are well thought out.

I just took an Israel and Jordan tour with them in November. I loved it. I would type more but I broke my arm yesterday...so check my bio on this site...there’s a link to my blog and I blogged the trip extensively.

Thank you, Pam! The “hurt flipper” made me smile after my tremendously bad day yesterday:)

February or March, excellent choice. February can be a little rainy (we always hope for lots of rain), but you'll mostly be in places that get very little rain. Days are longer and temps are generally higher in March, but February is far from cold.

If you can, book extra pre-tour nights in Israel to see some of what the tour misses and to get over the jetlag. The tour you linked to doesn't include Jerash. It's the best sight in Jordan, stay an extra day and take a tour there.
