With our team of travel-obsessed explorers, we take pride in sharing our Israel, Jordan and further related adventures with you. As many clients return to us for advice with further trips once they have travelled Israel and Jordan with us, we are happy to share our knowledge of other destinations which often offer cultural or historic synergies with touring you will have done with us here in Israel and the Middle East. Here you can read about some of our recent cultural encounters, newly tested tours, just discovered restaurants, and hotel openings - all part of a regular day at the office here at Pomegranate! We hope some of this inspires you to join the adventure with us.

    Skiing in the Middle East!!
