The Historical Tour of Jordan
With our carefully designed Jordan Historical Tour, you may travel through time and immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Jordan’s past.
We welcome you to join us on an enthralling journey through ancient civilizations, breathtaking landscapes, and renowned sites.
Day 1 brings you to Amman, Jordan, where our crew awaits your arrival at Queen Alia Airport. We then take you to the center of Amman, a city that perfectly mixes old-world beauty with modern refinement. Settle into your hotel, which will provide you with comfort and relaxation after your journey.
On Day 2, be prepared for an enthralling excursion through Amman’s historical abundant wealth. We start with a visit to the Amman Citadel, an ancient wonder positioned on the city’s tallest elevation. You’ll be taken back to the days of the Roman and Byzantine empires as you explore its historic remains and take in the panoramic vistas. Visit the Archeology and Folklore Museums in Amman, where a treasure trove of relics and exhibitions will unveil the mysteries of Jordan’s legacy. The Roman Theater, an architectural wonder, invites you to marvel at its splendor, while the labyrinthine ancient markets allow you to uncover hidden treasures and immerse yourself in local culture.
We go from Amman to the stunning desert scenery of Wadi Rum. Feel the cool wind of the desert as our knowledgeable guides bring you through the magical splendor of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. In a 4×4 vehicle, traverse the sandy expanse of Wadi Rum Village, skirting through Lawrence Spring, where remnants of Lawrence of Arabia’s travels remain. Allow the ancient writings engraved into rock formations to pique your interest, while towering sand dunes reveal a world of awe-inspiring magnificence. Return to your Desert Camp at the end of the day, situated among the serene beauty of Wadi Rum, where the starlit sky and friendly hospitality make a unique experience.
Day 3 takes you to one of the world’s most recognizable places of interest, Petra. Prepare to be awestruck by the magnificence of this ancient Nabatean city as you travel from Wadi Rum to Petra. Step through the tiny Siq and marvel at the Treasury’s beautiful carvings and awe-inspiring exterior. Explore the Nabatean Theater, Royal Tombs, and Roman Road Remains, all of which give evidence to the city’s illustrious past. The secrets of the big temple and the temple of the Winged Lion will be revealed, while the basin encourages study and thought. As the day comes to an end, return to the main gate, where your transport will take you to your hotel, assuring a restful night’s sleep.
Day 4 begins a new chapter in your historical journey with a visit to the fascinating city of Madaba. The Greek Orthodox Church of St. George is home to a mosaic map that depicts the Holy Land and Jerusalem in stunning detail. Admire this creative marvel, a doorway into the past that brings biblical stories to life. Explore the Archaeological Park to learn more about Madaba’s past and discover traces of ancient civilizations. Continuing our trek, we travel to Mount Nebo, a biblically significant sacred site. Stand in wonder as the panoramic landscape spreads before you, reflecting the vision Moses once saw. On a clear day, the holy towns of Jerusalem, Jericho, and Bethlehem appear on the horizon, a monument to Jordan’s everlasting links. We descend from Mount Nebo to the Dead Sea, where we will find peace and renewal. Surrender to its mineral-rich waters’ buoyant embrace, take a mud bath, and let the therapeutic elements of this natural marvel revive your body and spirit. We bring you to your accommodation as dusk falls, where the calming ambience of the Dead Sea promises a good night’s sleep.
On Day 5, wave farewell to Jordan’s breathtaking scenery and cultural history as we drive you from your hotel to Amman Queen Alia Airport. Leave with memories that will last a lifetime, inspired by Jordan’s vast historical history and the warmth of Jordanian hospitality.
