The cruise went to specific countries we wanted to visit. The trivia team games were fun!
The lecturer from UCLA, Dr. Teofilo Ruiz, was superb and the best historian I have ever heard on a cruise and I have been on 30 cruises.
The food was excellent and with free soft drinks, we could drink sodas as much as we wished.
Cleaned three times a day!
Our Omani guide was outstanding!,
There were many shops for buying souvenirs and prices were not set and bargaining done!
Very bumpy, rocky roads
I expected to be able to visit Bedouin homes and see their handicrafts and did not.
The Golan Heights tour was the best.
The guide knew much about everything concerning Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.
Having lunch at St. Peter's Restaurant on the Sea of Galilee was a highlight of our tour.
Our guide had a Ph.D. In archeology and knew his history of Egypt in depth.
Our guide knew so much about ancient and modern Egypt history , art, and music and also had a sense of humor!
