"I find it stimulating to travel with the kind of folks who are always on the APN study trips, and it is motivating to meet and talk to Israeli Jews and Palestinians whose values I share. It renews my faith in Israel's future."

Going on the APN Study Tour "was an amazing experience from every angle...an event of a lifetime. It gave me hope that there is still very much a chance for peace between Israelis and Palestinians."

One of the two countries to have signed a peace treaty with Israel, Jordan has an immense stake in Israeli-Palestinian peace, and serves as a fascinating window into the Arab world.

The capital of Jordan is a unique blend of old and new...ultra-modern buildings, hotels, smart restaurants, art galleries and boutiques, and everywhere there is evidence of the city's much older past.

The rock-carved rose-red city is indeed one of the most amazing ancient tourist sites in the World, a UNESCO world heritage site, and one of the new seven wonders of the World.
