       Whatever your faith, Elite Tour Club offers a range of tours to fire the imagination and take you back to your heritage or let you explore the ideas of the rich history of the destinations we visit.

North Africa and nearby, its sisterly East. Here Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Baha'ism and Druzism were chaperoned into existence, but Islam prevails. From nomadic settlement to future city, these are Elite Tour Club’s host lands; where theology is as tangible as their encroaching desert. The fulcrum of our itineraries in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Syria and Sudan is religious heritage, and their ancient cities are its guardians. 
 
Iconic Jerusalem and nativity-potent Bethlehem are ultimate pilgrimages, and form part of our Israel and Jordan itineraries — including our Christian Heritage Tour (8 days) and Jewish Heritage Tour (12 days). Jerusalem’s ‘Haram esh-Sharif’ or ‘Western Wall’ is divinely revered by Jews the world over. This is the ancient city’s oldest surviving structure since the lifetimes of King Herod Antipater and his tortured contemporary, Jesus of Nazareth. 
 
Invading Bethlehem in 614 AD, Persian hordes were said to have spared The Church of the Nativity from destruction because its ‘Magi icons’ (‘Persia-admiring graphics’) made such a big impression on them. So this marker of Jesus’ birthplace remains the most aged church in the Holy Land. Meanwhile in Egypt, our Christian Holy Family Tour (9 days) is ascending Moses’ 2,285m Mount of the world’s greatest ‘not to-do list’ — Sinai. 
 
Our Muslim Heritage Tour (9 days) encompasses the mosques of Al Azhar, Imam El Hussein, Saida Zeineb, Imam El Shafi and Saida Nafisa in Cairo alone. High on Mokattam Hill at the Salâh ad-Dîn (Saladin) Citadel, the Alabaster Mosque of Mohammed Ali Pasha stands resplendent. Visiting all these, reflect that there are more than 2,000 Syrian mosques in Damascus, and the Umayyad Mosque (715 AD) is thought to be the oldest place of continuous prayer since the rise of Islam; it is certainly one of world’s largest, and proudly guards the mausoleum of Salâh ad-Dîn Yûsuf ibn Ayyûb. 
 
Our Jewish Heritage Tour (12 days) includes Caesarea Maritima, the ancient port city that King Herod Antipater’s father — King Herod the Great — named in honour of the Roman enforcer, Caesar Augustus. The city was in ruins by the nineteenth century when, in 1884, it began to flourish as a fishing village extending from the stones of the Crusader fort. Back in 22 BC, Herod the Great had established its first harbour and erected Temples to Rome and Augustus. This made Caesarea a famous arena for Olympian sports, gladiatorial contests and theatrical extravaganzas beside the sparkling Mediterranean. 

We are happy to arrange for you to visit local Churches, Synagogues and Mosques at your destination and take part in a service in new cultural surroundings. Ask our travel consultants for more details.
