To experience some of the greatest archaeological and architectural wonders of the world, there is no greater adventure than to explore the bustling cities of India and the expansive deserts of Jordan. During a journey that includes the timeless beauty of the Taj Mahal, Amber Fort, and Petra, and reveals the diverse cultures and history of their settings, learn how ancient traditions remain entwined with everyday modern life.

• Explore the cities of Muscat and Salalah in Oman, taking in the history of Muscat’s stone forts Al Jalali and Al Mirani and the fortified town of Sumharam in Salalah.
• Thrill in the sight of Petra, a city carved into the rose-colored rock mountainside.
