    To see a painting on the wall of a tomb that is as colourful and vibrant as
  the day it was painted 3,000 years ago boggles the mind. Pyramids, temples,
   bazaars, castles, and its unique status as the cradle of civilization, everything
                       about this region overwhelms the senses.

 Egypt: in     the Footsteps of Pharaohs
 Egypt has dazzled visitors with its archaeological wonders for centuries. From the dizzying spectacle of the
 pyramids at Giza to the tombs and temples of Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel, Egypt transports visitors back to
 the first great civilization. The vibrancy of Cairo is wonderfully complemented by a gentle cruise up the Nile that
 allows explorers to step off and experience ancient history. Whether you are tracing the footsteps of pharaohs,
 exploring colourful and vibrant bazaars, or enjoying world class diving at luxurious resorts on the Red Sea, Egypt
 remains a breathtaking wonder of the world.



 Jordan:       Hidden Secrets of the Ancient World
 Jordan is a hidden gem off the beaten track. With a friendly and welcoming culture and impressive ancient sites,
 Jordan is an explorer’s delight. Discover the mysterious charm of Petra, the rose-red city carved into massive
 cliffs. Hear the battle cries of old at the Crusader Fortress of Kerak. Wander through Jerash one of the largest and
 most fully preserved Roman cities in the world. At Mount Nebo, visit the burial site of Moses and then relax as
 you effortlessly float in the Dead Sea.




“We just returned from our trip to Egypt and want to thank you for all your efforts in
our behalf. It was a fantastic experience for one and all!! The details were superbly
 executed as we were treated with great service all along the way. The guides were
                                     fabulous.“ — Terence Hoy

                  Morocco:              Fabled Marketplaces & Sahara Nomads
                  A sun drenched land of sea and sand, blazing desert and the cool Atlas mountains, Morocco has fascinated
                  travelers for centuries. Blending the influence of the Moors with the nomadic Berber caravans, the country
                  combines unique food, architecture and history. Casablanca and Tangier are both gateways to the country,
                  and both are worth a day of exploration. The UNESCO World Heritage city of Fes is a dizzying maze of stone
                  buildings, shops, schools, mosques and houses within a centuries old city wall. In contrast, the exotic bazaar of
                  Marrakech is an outside affair with its blocks and blocks of stalls, open air vendors, snake charmers, water sellers,
                  camels and mystics. Venture further to the quiet beauty of the desert in Ouarzazate, or the faded royal port city
                  of Essauaira.


                  Israel:        Religious Crossroads of the World
                  Sacred throughout history to Christians, Muslims and Jews, Israel has preserved its ancient treasures and secrets
                  while building a vibrant and varied modern culture. Archaeological and religious attractions of unparalleled
                  significance juxtapose with spas, beach resorts, luxurious hotels and culinary delights. From Jerusalem’s Old
                  City to the Dead Sea and Masaada, and from Galilee to Tel Aviv, Israel is a moving and fascinating experience for
                  modern day pilgrims of all faiths and explorers of history and culture.

                Kensington Insider Tip:
                In Egypt large tourists busses often crowd the pyramids and museums. So Kensington Tour’s guides go “in
                reverse order”, to give guests a private view of the sights before most of the big tour busses pull in, and after
                they have left.
