Day 2: Petra

Today you have a full day guided tour 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!

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.

Dead Sea salt up close

Day 5: Dead Sea

Day at leisure at the Dead Sea. Sink or swim? There is no chance of either occurring at the Dead Sea. The mineral-rich Dead Sea offers bathers ultimate buoyancy to the point where you will feel like a cork bobbing about! Take a dip in the mineral-rich waters. In addition and perhaps famously, the intense salinity creates an unusually high degree of buoyancy. Opt for a dip, and you will bob about like a rubber duck in a bath, without any effort at all. No life rings needed here.

Relaxing in the Dead Sea

Day 6: Dead Sea

Today we bid you farewell transferring you to the Queen Alia airport for your onward flight.
