Welcome to Jordan and the start of your exclusive journey through the land of the Bedouin's. Arriving into Amman airport, you will see our friendly local team waiting to transfer you to your hotel.
Heading north, we visit Jerash, the Graeco-Roman city known as the ‘Pompeii of the East’. Built over 2,000 years ago, Jerash is widely regarded as the best-preserved city of the Decapolis, a confederation of 10 Roman cities dating from the 1st century! We’ll explore the site taking in the colonnaded street, amphitheatre, nymphaeum, forum and more before continuing to Umm Qais (Gadara), a dramatic black-basalt Roman city of the Decapolis with panoramic views over the Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights.

We then visit the the castle of Mukawir. It was the site of Herod's Palace, where Salome asked for the head of John the Baptist as a reward for her dancing, and also a centre of resistance to Rome during the First Jewish Revolt. We conclude day with exploring the Byzantine Mosaics in Madaba.
This morning we drive to Petra. Along the way stopping to explore the Roman ruins and beautiful mosaics of Umm ar-Rasas.

Open your eyes this morning and take a peek out the window to the magical blue of the Red Sea. For the next few days, sit back and relax by the pool sipping cocktails and soaking up the sun. Here you can opt to go snorkelling or diving, to view the amazing array of aquatic life in the nearby reefs.
