Amman, Jerash

We start our Jordan tour today with a drive north for a visit of Jerash, one of the largest and best preserved Roman sites outside of Italy. It is a excellent example of Roman architecture including paved and colonnaded streets, hilltop temples, amphitheatres, spacious public squares and plazas, bathhouses, fountains and a city wall pierced by towers and gates.
In the afternoon was have a city tour of Amman. We'll make our way to the Citadel - the former home of the ancient Temple of Hercules, The Umayyad Palace, the Byzantine Church before we make our way to the 6000 seater Roman theatre, which was built during the Roman Period, when the city was known as Philadelphia. The ancient theatre is still in use today, playing host to numerous cultural events.

Day 4
Thursday

Petra, Wadi Rum Bedouin camp

The day's itinerary focuses on the exploration of Petra, an ancient Nabatean site and a significant tourist attraction in Jordan, with a 2-3 hour guided tour of this fascinating city. Petra, once a thriving capital, was rediscovered in 1812 after being forgotten for centuries. Located on the edge of the Wadi Aruba desert, its entrance, the Siq, offers a dramatic passage through the canyon walls.
The site, carved into multi-colored sandstone cliffs, features iconic structures such as the Treasury (Khazneh), facades elaborately carved into the rock. Guided tours highlight architectural details and the spiritual significance of the buildings. Visitors can explore the valley with rock-carved tombs, a Roman amphitheater, and the Monastery, offering panoramic views.
The day involves walking, around 3km to the Treasury, 8km to the main basin, and additional distance for the Monastery (involving over 800 steps). For those concerned about mobility, horse carriages are available for transportation.
Later, the journey continues into the stunning desert landscapes of Wadi Rum, where a comfortable camp awaits. Here, visitors can unwind, stargaze, and savor a traditional Jordanian meal, hosted by friendly Bedouins.

Day 5
Friday

Wadi Rum jeep safari, Dead Sea swim

We start the day exploring the beautiful desert and mountain scenery of Wadi Rum. We'll take a jeep safari through the beautiful desert scenery, seeing more of the sheer cliffs and bizarre rock formations.
We say goodbye to Wadi Rum later today and head north towards the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is fed by numerous rivers, including the River Jordan. Once the waters reach the Dead Sea they are land-locked and have nowhere to go, so they evaporate, leaving behind a dense, rich, cocktail of salts and minerals. Although sparsely populated and serenely quiet now, the area is believed to have been home to five Biblical cities: Sodom, Gomorrah, Adman, Zebouin and Zoar (Bela).
We'll stop along the way to enjoy a 'swim', though the intensely salty waters lead to a very strange swimming experience. In fact, normal swimming is not possible, and it is easier (and more photogenic!) just to float, sitting or lying in the water.
We finish the day back at our hotel in Amman.

Accommodation

This is intended to give an idea of the type of accommodation that may be expected. The actual hotels used for any given tour may change due to many reasons such as group size, availability, time of year, hotel standard has dropped or simply we found a better hotel. We update the website immediately if and when any changes take place. If and when we do change hotels it will be to a hotel of equal or higher standard and will be at no extra cost.

Where more than one hotel is shown for a given an overnight stop this means that one of those hotels will be used.
