Some of the Roman ruins in Amman

Day 2: Amman - Petra

Driving along the King's Highway we visit 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. We also visit 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. Then we descend to the Dead Sea for a chance to swim with lunch. Later we then drive south to visit Karak Crusader Castle before continuing onto Petra for the evening.

Looking through the Siq at the Treasury

Day 3: Petra

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). 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!

The deep reds of the Treasury

Day 4: Petra

Today we transfer to Wadi Rum for a 4x4 tour of the moonscape terrain which T. E. Lawrence described as “vast, echoing and God-like.” The desertscape of Wadi Rum is truly stunning with its ancient riverbeds and amazing eroded rock formations. We drive onward to Aqaba - Jordan’s premier Red Sea hotspot where our arrangements end (accom not included in Aqaba).
