  • Arrive in Amman.

We meet you at Amman airport and transfer you to your city centre hotel The rest of the day is free for you to settle in and relax.

  • Day 2:
  • Jerash tour. Amman free time

We head out of Amman today and visit the extensive Roman ruins at Jerash, some of the best preserved in the whole of the Middle East. When the show is operating we will time our visit so we can see the exciting Chariot races held in traditional Roman costume. After returning to Amman, the rest of the afternoon is free to explore the city centre, take an optional half day tour, or do an optional visit to the fun and interactive Children's Museum.

  • Day 3:
  • Drive the King's Highway to Petra

Leaving Amman, we drive south along the King's Highway, one of the most scenic drives in the Middle East. En-route we will stop to see the Roman mosaics at Madaba, and explore the walls and tunnels of the huge crusader castle at Kerak (bring a torch as the tunnels and halls are great fun for children to explore). We finish the day at the world famous site of Petra.

  • Day 4:
  • Petra

The main highlight of the tour happens today, as we tour the fascinating hidden Nabatean city of Petra. This is a great place for children as the scenery is dramatic, the history of its rediscovery fascinating, and its numerous paths and steps great fun to explore. We include a 3-4 hour guided tour, lunch, and plenty of free time to walk up to the High Place of Sacrifice and the Monastery. You have the option of returning into Petra in the evening for the beautiful 'Petra by Candlelight' tour.

  • Day 5:
  • Wadi Rum jeep safari, sunset camel ride, Bedouin camp

We head back into the desert today and travel by 4x4 jeep through the spectacular high cliffs and sands of Wadi Rum. After arriving at our camp we enjoy a fun camel ride for around 1 1/2 hours at sunset. We then spend the night sleeping at a Bedouin camp in the desert (during the winter months we use a larger more permanent desert camp with hot showers for extra comfort).

  • Day 6:
  • Aqaba. Free time by the Red Sea

The pace of the tour slows down today as we make the short drive to Aqaba and we have the rest of the day free to relax on the beach or by the pool at a 4-star beach resort. An option is available for a boat trip into the Red Sea to try some snorkelling around one of the nearby islands. Glass bottomed boat rides are also available.

  • Day 7:
  • Drive to Amman via the Dead Sea

We head north again today, and drive up the Jordan Valley back towards Amman. En-route we will stop for a swim in the strange, incredibly salty waters of the Dead Sea. A fun mud bath can also be taken here. The evening is free for a last farewell meal in Amman.
