In an industry "first," Enrichment Journeys pairs together a land and river cruise program to the Holy Land featuring Israel and Jordan along with a Christmas-time Danube River cruise, creating a 25-day program with included air, hotels, cruise, guides and more.

(TRAVPR.COM) USA - May 16th, 2014 - In what may be a travel industry “first,” Ft. Lauderdale-based Enrichment Journeys has combined a 12-day Holy Land tour featuring Israel and Jordan, with a Christmas markets cruise on the Danube River. The 25-day package includes airfare from New York, a deluxe Danube River cruise, baggage handling, escorted tours and 15-nights in four and five star hotels in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Amman, Jerusalem, Budapest and Prague. Prices start at $5,999 per person and depart the U.S November 8, 2014.

“To the best of our knowledge, no one has ever packaged these two iconic destinations together as a single vacation” said David Gevanthor, president. “This trip should appeal to both history lovers and those who enjoy traveling at this interesting and festive time of the year.” 

He said the idea came to him while looking at Holy Land itineraries and trying to see what cruises they might be packaged with. "We combine popular cruise itineraries with interesting land destinations that create unique, one-of-a-kind, experiences," said Gevanthor. "We are capitalizing on a trend preferred by many active retirees who prefer longer trips that combine several destinations, rather than multiple trips to the same part of the world. Given the cost of airfares, and the difficulty of finding and booking centrally-located hotels and planning local tours, the resulting value is very compelling," Gevanthor said.

The tour begins with two nights in Tel Aviv exploring the city and Jaffa. Then passengers drive the Mediterranean coast to Haifa by way of Caesarea, once capital of the Roman regime. From Haifa, Enrichment Journeys travelers will visit Galilee, Tiberius and Capernaum. Significance in this area is a combination of religious tradition and the history of the Roman Empire. From there passengers cross into Jordan for tours of Jerash, the “Pompeii of the East,” and Mount Nebo, where tradition holds that Moses first viewed the Promised Land. A full-day visit to Petra promises to be one of the major highlights of the trip before proceeding to Jerusalem for four nights. Home to three religious faiths, dramatic sights and sounds abound in this fascinating and electrifying city. Throughout the tour, passengers will be escorted by an Israeli scholar and educator who will provide commentary and insights.

The pace changes after departing Israel for two nights in Budapest. With an included city tour and a comfortable centrally-located 4-star hotel, passengers will find time to enjoy Budapest as it readies itself for the Christmas Season. Boarding the AmaWaterways AmaBella, Enrichment Journeys’ guests will be treated to the vibrancy of the Holiday season as it unfolds along the Danube in glittering Vienna, the wondrous Benedictine Abbey in Melk, Passau and Regensburg with their colorful Christmas Markets, all before arriving in Nuremburg. Prior to returning home, guests will experience two nights in storybook Prague as a perfect ending to this three-week-plus vacation. 

Gevanthor says “given the quality of the included tours and accommodations on land and river, we know this will be a successful program. We like to say our trips offer 'remarkable experiences and extraordinary value' and we are sure we will exceed expectation with this program." He added that to insure personalized service, the tour is limited to just 20 participants.
