Amman, Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea are the jewels in Jordan's crown: discover the best of the beautiful historic country with this eight-day tour package!
Jordan Tour Package: 8 Days
Day 1: Amman
On arrival at Queen Alia Airport in Amman, we'll pick you up and take you to your hotel for the night, to eat dinner and relax ready for the adventure of the week ahead.
Day 2: Amman – Dead Sea – Amman
After breakfast at your hotel in Amman, we'll set off to the first stop on our tour of Jordan and one of the most incredible natural spaces in the Middle East: the Dead Sea. You'll have the rest of the day free to bathe in the salt lake, whose unique conditions allow you to float without having to know how to swim. At midday, we'll enjoy a delicious lunch on the shores of the Dead Sea - the best way to build up strength after a hard morning relaxing! In the afternoon, you'll be left to explore the lakeside area at your own pace before we meet back up again for the return journey to the hotel in Amman, where we'll have dinner and spend the night.
Day 3: Amman – Jerash – Ajloun – Amman
Having had breakfast at the hotel, we'll embark on a panoramic tour of Amman, delving into the city's history as we explore its important monuments. We'll visit the iconic Archaeological Museum and the Amman Citadel to get an incomparable understanding of the country's ancient past. The citadel, which is home to the ruins of the Temple of Hercules, will allow us to learn about the societies that lived in this area of the Middle East. We'll also make a stop at the nearby Roman Theatre of Amman, a monumental reminder of the city under the Roman Empire.
We'll then head to the north towards Jerash, a city whose history dates back to at least 5,500 BC. Known as the "Pompeii of the East", the ancient imperial city is still home to the remarkable ruins of the Temple of Artemis and the Agora, amongst other extraordinary historic sites. At the end of your fascinating guided tour of the Jerash archaeological complex, you'll have free time to have lunch (not included). In the afternoon, we'll visit the Castle of Ajloun, a Medieval fortress with a legendary history, before returning to the hotel in Amman.
Day 4: Amman – Madaba – Mount Nebo – Shoubak – Petra
Enjoy a hearty breakfast in the hotel in Amman before setting off to the south, in the direction of the town of Madaba. We'll learn all about the connection this town has with the Bible, before heading to Mount Nebo, the peak from which Moses first saw the Promised Lands according to the Holy Scriptures. Our route will then continue to Shoubak Castle, an imposing Crusader fortress located in the Arabah Valley. There will be free time in Shoubak for you to buy lunch, before we head onwards to the hotel in Petra.
Day 5 : Petra
Energised after a good breakfast at the hotel, we'll begin our guided tour of the incredible archaeological site of Petra. Throughout our English-language tour of the ancient royal capital of the Nabateans, we'll delve deep into the history of the desert town. After admiring the Obelisk Tomb, we'll walk between the narrow, steep walls of the Al-Siq Canyon, leading us to the jewel of the city: the Treasury of Petra. Do you know why it was built? We'll reveal why as we marvel at its spectacular rock-carved architecture. Our tour of Petra will come to an end after visiting the theatre and the enormous Deir Monastery, and we'll then head back to the hotel to spend the night.
Day 6: Petra – Little Petra – Wadi Rum Desert – Amman
After breakfast, we'll leave our hotel in Petra behind and make our way to the so-called Little Petra. Like its big sister, this archaeological site was also a Nabatean settlement, and you'll get to see its temples and other buildings carved into the sandstone of the desert. Having explored the ancient town to your heart's content, we'll head into the desert to embrace the natural landscapes of Jordan. Arriving in the breathtakingly beautiful Wadi Rum valley, we'll get to let off steam and experience an unforgettable adrenaline rush enjoying the views of dunes and rock formations on a 4x4 off-road Jeep tour.
At the end of a packed day, we'll make the journey back to the hotel in Amman where we stayed for the first three nights of the tour.
Day 7: Amman
You'll have free time in the Jordanian capital today to see the monuments and museums that interest you the most, or to explore further on an additional excursion or guided tour (not included).
