This tour has been specifically designed to take you on a fascinating journey through Roman, Medieval and Biblical worlds. The journey starts and ends in Damascus, one of the world’s oldest continually inhabited cities and also visits Lattakia, Aleppo, Hama and Palmya. This comprehensive, fully guided group tour includes visits to many of the country’s gems and cultural highlights.
Note: Due to the current security situation in Syria, at this time we are not running any of our tours to the country. We will only restart operating in Syria when we are confident it is safe for our travellers to visit. Read more
Upon arrival in Damascus you are met by our rep and transferred from the airport to our chosen hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to recover from your flight and explore the local area.
After a morning pre tour meeting by your group guide we take you on a full day tour around Damascus. Highlights will include the National Museum, Tekkiye Suleymaniye complex, Azem Palace and the great Umayyad Mosque.
After breakfast in Lattakia we follow the coast to ancient ruins of Ugarit. We have a guided tour here before continuing to Aleppo via the impressive Castle of Saladin.
Today we have a morning tour to the Basilica of St Simeon before returning to Aleppo for an afternoon tour which will feature the Great Mosque and the Citadel. Free time to explore the Souq al Attareen.
We leave the north of Syria behind today to travel to the 'Bride of the Desert' - Palmyra. We have stops along the way at the Roman town of Apamea and in Hama to view the famous moaning waterwheels.
You have a guided tour of Palmyra today followed by plenty of free time to explore further on your own. Late in the afternoon we will return to Damascus for your final evening in Syria.
Your tour comes to an end today. You have some free time in Damascus until we transfer you to the airport for your departure flight.
We use a range of carefully selected hotels on our group departures. If you have specific requests for hotels, please ask for a private or tailor-made tour.
