Optional Jordan Extension, March 28-31, 2015
Those who wish to add an additional tour to Jordan have the option for an additional 2.5 days at the end of the Israel portion.
The Jordan field trip will take students to Petra, Mt. Nebo, Jerash, and Madaba. It traverses the lands of the ancient Edomites and Moabites and traces the Nabateans to their rock-cut city of Petra.
A walk through the Roman-Byzantine city Jerash – one of the cities of the Decapolis – explores aspects of a Roman city and the beauty of Byzantine architecture.
The Jordan field trip is two and half days and students will stay in hotels in Amman, Jordan.
The Jordan field trip begins with departure from Jerusalem at 6AM on Saturday morning March 28 and returning back to Jerusalem late Monday afternoon March 30 around 5 PM. The Jordan field trip includes an overnight on Monday, March 30, in Jerusalem and departure for home is on Tuesday, March 31, 2015.
The cost of Jordan is CAD $975 per person.
