Welcome to Jordan and the start of your holiday! Upon arrival at Amman's Queen Alia airport you will be met and transferred directly to Petra, a 2 hour drive away. Check in to your hotel and spend the remainder of the day at leisure.
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).

Finally descend to the Dead Sea - lowest point on the earth’s surface. Take a dip in the unusually warm and incredibly buoyant mineral rich waters and smother yourself in Dead Sea mud.
Take a final dip in the dead sea this morning before transferring to Amman's Queen Alia airport for your onward flight. We will see you again in Israel for your Heritage of the Holy Lands group tour.
The lowest point on the earth’s surface, the Dead Sea is a natural phenomena and gift of Mother Nature. Straddling ...
