    Amman
Day 2

After breakfast, spend the day with your private guide exploring the ancient Nabatean Rose City of Petra - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Access the hidden archaeological treasures of the Rose City on a walk through a narrow, deep siq, where the rocks finally give way to reveal the famous facade of Al-Khazneh (the Treasury). It's also possible to ride a horse through the Siq. Once inside the ancient city, discover tombs, temples, an impressive amphitheatre and a Roman colonnaded street. If you're feeling energetic ascend the hundreds of rock-cut steps to Ad-Deir. Better known as the Monastery, Ad-Deir has a similar facade to that of the Treasury, but is far bigger and the views from the nearby cliff-tops are incredible!
Overnight: Petra  |  Breakfast

Day 3

Petra - Shobak Castle - Madaba - Mt Nebo - Dead Sea. This morning take a short drive to visit Little Petra and the Baidha Neolithic village, hidden away in the centre of a mountain, with a classical temple standing guard outside the mini-siq. Although much smaller than Petra, Baidha is crammed to the brim with tombs, temples and houses.

En route to the Dead Sea journey over the Heisha mountains to tour Shobak a 12th Century Crusader Castle perched on the side of a rocky mountain, before proceeding to Madaba, to see the world’s largest collection of ancient mosaics and visit the St. George Church with its famous 6th Century map of the Holy Land. Continue on to Mt. Nebo, where Moses viewed the Promised Land, here you can take in the wonderful view of the Jordan Valley, Dead Sea, Jericho and (if it's clear) Jerusalem. Finally descend to the Dead Sea - lowest point on the earth’s surface, arriving at approximately 16.00hrs and check into your hotel. Take a dip in the unusually warm and incredibly buoyant mineral rich waters and smother yourself in Dead Sea mud. The Dead Sea, renowned for its curative powers and therapeutic qualities, is the world's oldest spa!

Should you wish to drive directly from Petra to the Dead Sea, foresaking some or all of the touring arrangements for the day and allowing more time to relax, this can be arranged.
