Itinerary

  • Day 1:
  • Arrive in Amman

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

  • Day 2:
  • Amman - City tour, visit Jerash

We explore central Amman this morning, visiting the Roman amphitheatre and other sites. In the afternoon we take a short tour out of the city to see the impressive and extensive Roman ruins at Jerash, some of the best preserved in the whole of the Middle East.

  • Day 3:
  • Amman - Desert castles tour

We have a full day trip out of Amman today, heading east into the desert to explore some of Jordan's strange 'Desert Castles'. More combinations of forts and palaces than castles, the remains of some of these are very impressive and atmospheric. We will also visit a desert nature reserve before returning to Amman.

  • Day 4:
  • Desert Highway to Madaba, Aqaba and Red Sea

Today's first stop is the town of Madaba which is home to some incredibly well preserved and important Roman mosaics. We then continue south along the Desert Highway until we reach Aqaba and the Red Sea. The afternoon is free to relax in your 5-star beach resort or to do a snorkelling trip by boat to one of the nearby offshore islands.

  • Day 5:
  • Red Sea. Wadi Rum jeep safari, camel ride, Bedouin camp

Your morning is free in Aqaba today, perhaps to take another snorkelling or scuba-diving trip, relax in your resort, or visit Aqaba's market and castle. After lunch we make the short drive into the incredible desert scenery of Wadi Rum today where we take a jeep safari around the cliffs and rock formations to our deluxe Bedouin camp located right at the foot of the cliffs inside the desert reserve. Here we'll enjoy a sunset camel ride and a sumptuous Bedouin meal before sleeping in comfortable fully furnished tents.

  • Day 6:
  • Wadi Rum. Little Petra

After a leisurely breakfast and more time to see Wadi Rum this morning, we leave the desert and drive to Petra. In the afternoon we visit 'Little Petra' which forms a great introduction to the main site we'll explore tomorrow. An optional 'Petra by Candlelight' tour is available this evening.

  • Day 7:
  • Petra - tour and free time

We have a full guided tour of around 4 hours in Petra today, and also have plenty of free time to explore more of the site, perhaps to walk up to the High Place of Sacrifice and the huge Monastery, carved into the cliffs and overlooking the Jordan valley.
In the evening there is an optional Petra by Candlelight tour.

  • Day 8:
  • Kings Highway - Kerak, Mt. Nebo and the Dead Sea

We leave Petra early today and drive north up the scenic King's Highway, stopping to explore the  impressive crusader castle at Kerak en-route. We also stop to admire the huge and colourful valley of Wadi Mujib, and to hopefully enjoy great views towards Jericho and Israel from Mt. Nebo. We finish the day by arriving at our Dead Sea resort in time for a swim and possible mud bath in the Dead Sea.

  • Day 9:
  • Dead Sea - Transfer to airport

Your time is free to relax at your hotel today, and perhaps enjoy some of the spa facilities, before we transfer you to the airport for your departure. Alternatively you can extend your stay and add a visit into Israel or to the nearby Baptism site at Bethany.
