Day 1 kicks off your experience by meeting you wherever in Jordan and whisking you away to the amazing city of Petra. Prepare to be astounded as you enter this UNESCO World Heritage Site and spend an unforgettable night surrounded by its mysterious splendor.
After a sumptuous breakfast on Day 2, we continue on an enthralling visit of Jerash, the best-preserved Roman city in the East. Immerse yourself in the magnificence of its theaters, temples, and colonnaded streets, which provide a true look into the past. Then we travel to Ajloun’s Qalat ar-Rabad castle before returning to Amman for a relaxing overnight stay.
Day 3 takes you to Amman, Jordan’s busy capital. Discover the old Citadel, its rich archaeological legacy, and the Jordanian Museum of Popular Traditions and Folklore’s intriguing displays. We next take you to the world-famous Dead Sea, where you may float freely in its buoyant waters, soak in a revitalizing mud bath, and soak in the tranquility of its surrounds. Return to your hotel in Amman for a restful night’s sleep.
We continue our drive to Madaba, noted for its stunning Byzantine mosaics, as the sun rises on Day 4. Explore the Madaba Archaeological Park and marvel at the magnificent mosaic map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land in the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George. Our road takes us to Mount Nebo, where we will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Holy Land and the Dead Sea. We continue down the famous Kings Highway, stopping at Karak for a delicious lunch and seeing the spectacular castle that saw Saladin and Richard Lion Heart’s trials during the Crusades. Finally, we transport you to your Petra hotel for a well-deserved night’s rest.
The fascinating city of Petra is the focus of Day 5. Prepare to be charmed as you go into the renowned Treasury, the magnificent Nabatean Theater, and the majestic Royal Tombs. Explore the Roman Road, the Great Temple, and the Temple of the Winged Lion and the Basin. Return to the main gate and wait for your vehicle to take you to your Petra hotel, where you may reflect on the sights you’ve seen.
On Day 6, we travel to the lovely Little Petra, a hidden jewel just waiting to be discovered. Discover the complex architecture, bustling marketplaces, and enthralling Siq al Barid. Following that, we travel to Wadi Rum, a desert oasis with fascinating vistas. Explore Rum Village in a 4X4, marvel at Lawrence Spring and Khazalai Canyon, and uncover old inscriptions and stunning sand dunes. As the day concludes, return to your Wadi Rum Desert Camp to enjoy the tranquility of the desert and make memorable memories.
The final phase of our journey begins on Day 7. We take you from Wadi Rum to the tranquil shores of the Dead Sea. Enjoy the therapeutic qualities of its mineral-rich waters, unwind in elegant surroundings, and completely relax. A visit at a Dead Sea hotel promises to be a really relaxing experience.
We wish you farewell on Day 8, but not before one more glimpse of Jordan’s beauty. We transport you from your Dead Sea hotel to Amman Queen Alia Airport, providing a pleasant and trouble-free return trip.
