MotoDiscovery celebrates Dia de los Muertos

The tradition is deep. It existed 3,000 years ago in Mesoamerica, an annual celebratory reunion with the departed. It would blend with European observance of All Souls Day with the 16th century arrival of Spanish Conquistadors and Christianity. The result is something unique on a global scale. Nowhere will you find this more authentic, than in the Central Mexico region of Oaxaca (wha-ha-ka).  MotoDiscovery invites you to join

Israel & Jordan Motorcycle Tour

Experience the ancient history of the Holy Land, the awe of Petra and the vastness of the Wadi Rum desert.

This tour is ideal for couples or singles. Culture and history heavily accent this motorcycle tour, but the quality riding deserves mention. With a well thought out itinerary, this event is packed each day with fascinating interests while maintaining an easy moderate pace. We designate this ride as a Road Tour meaning roads are paved throughout. The Biblical highlights are abundant as one would expect but recent history is inescapable. As it is often said, Israel is in a “rough neighborhood” but do not be dissuaded. Israel and neighboring Jordan are prime tourist destinations for those who appreciate experiential travel fulfilment. This one won’t disappoint. We regard it as one of the best in the MotoDiscovery lineup.

The ride is suitable for a passenger however to be clear; this should not be your pillion rider’s first introduction to the world of adventure motorcycling. You may wish to consider having your favorite passenger join you for a portion of the tour. Contact MotoDiscovery to discuss that possibility, offer consultation on an itinerary and to quote a price for a partial passenger participation.

This tour demands a high level of preparation and advance planning. We strongly urge you to network within your riding circles and friends to have others join you. Even one year prior to tour date is not too soon. Sign up today for this incredibly immersive South America touring experience.

NOTE: This tour will have a unique Trip Cancellation Policy due to the required advance obligations with suppliers. Trip Interruption Insurance is strongly recommended.

  • Quality. Israel is expensive with a very high cost of living. MotoDiscovery avoids the temptation to go budget. In Israel you can expect those premium motorcycle tour standards that we are known for including great dining, fine accommodations, the best of support and guides and a multitude of inclusions introducing you to the fascinating history of the region.
  • Jerusalem is a holy place venerated by the three major religions of the world: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We will walk its ancient streets and have a private guided tour that promises to enlighten.
  • The Sea of Galilee figures heavily in biblical history. At only 13 miles long and about 8 miles wide, it is fed by the river Jordan and freshwater springs.
  • Masada is an ancient ruin built on a natural mountain fortress overlooking the Dead Sea. Within Jewish tradition, it is a venerated place. The 1st century BC Roman siege and determined Jewish resistance is part of the rich folklore of the region. From its heights you can see the distant Dead Sea.
  • Petra is one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. We will cross into Jordan for two nights to explore this remarkable place as well as be among Bedouin tribesmen and explore the Wadi Rum Valley, a desert area accented by stunning mountains and canyons, rich with ancient history.
  • The Dead Sea is nearly 10 times as salty as the ocean and floating in it resembles feeling like a cork. A harsh environment, and at the lowest place on earth (more than 1,400 ft. below sea level) yet the waters and natural products in the area are known for curative properties.
  • The cuisine. You won’t be disappointed and we intend to try it all. Fresh is the rule, from traditional peasant dishes to fusion inspired styles, be prepared to let a notch out of your belt!
  • This tour is the ideal platform for a customized private tour just for you and your friends. Interested? Fill out this easy Custom Motorcycle Tour Questionnaire, and let’s get started.

FAQs

Do I need an advance visa?

No advance tourist visas are required for USA citizens as well as many other nationalities visiting Israel. If you have any doubt please conduct your own research or contact MotoDiscovery.

For entry into Jordan for our excursion to Petra, single entry visas may be obtained at the border. Nominal fees are likely to apply. This will be addressed in the Tour Information Booklet sent to tour participants well in advance of the tour date.

Is it safe?

Nearly four million visitors come to Israel each year. The history of conflict in the region is well known and of course, MotoDiscovery is diligent in monitoring any situation that could pose a threat to your safety. The normal risks associated with international travel apply here. We consider Israel safe. Jordan, like many countries we travel to, does have a US State Department Advisory. By all accounts travel to Petra is safe.

Is this a good couples tour?

Yes. Yes! This region is intensely fascinating, romantic and deserves to be shared. This is “light adventure” with a reasonable pace and the kind of services and amenities that will please your favorite passenger.

How large are the groups?

We prefer smaller groups. Expect this one to be 12 people or less.

What if my partner doesn’t ride?

Any friend, family member or partner is welcome to join us in a support vehicle (based on available space) that also serves to carry the luggage. This is a common request.  Should enough non-riding participants have an interest in the tour, we can discuss getting a private driver and vehicle.  You will want to share this with your loved ones.

Will we get off the pavement?

There may be occasional opportunities to get off the pavement however this is, for the most part, a pavement “road tour”. Any skilled motorcyclist should manage this tour with ease.

I need a lowered bike.

This is a very common request and more often than not we are able to accommodate. Please advise us if this is essential to your touring experience. Call us for consultation.

What will the weather be like?

We always schedule tours to run during the best riding seasons. Temperatures and climates are better addressed for your tour date in the pre-tour information booklet but know that we seek the most pleasant time of year for your travels.

I’m thinking of doing another tour while in the area. Can you help?

Good idea. You are not the only one. MotoDiscovery intentionally schedules a number of tours in the region to permit you to go from one destination to the next with a short layover in between…while you are in the neighborhood.

Can you assist me if I wish to arrive early or extend my stay after the tour?

Of course. Call on us if you require consultation or any additional services. In most locations, we have a wealth of contacts.

Can MotoDiscovery design a private tour just for me and my friends?

The Israel-Jordan tour is a great model for us to build you a private riding experience, just for you and your friends. A non motorcycling family activity prior to or after the ride can be custom designed just for you.  Contact MotoDiscovery for consultation.

Will I get more information?

Tour preparation is important. You will receive electronically a comprehensive tour booklet that will address all your questions. You are encouraged to call or send us an email at any time if you have additional questions. We welcome your inquiries.

When should I sign up?

Now. Please. Early sign ups are essential in order that we can secure the best of accommodations and make certain you receive the motorcycle of your choice. Call your friends. Organize a group. Start your planning today.
