Welcome To Jordan!
Welcome to Jordan!
Upon arrival at King Hussein International airport, pass through immigration and customs, and look for the tour representative holding a sign with your name on it.
They will welcome you to Jordan and transfer you to your hotel in Aqaba.
Discover The Dead Sea & the Wadi Rum Desert
After breakfast at your hotel, spend some time on the beaches of the Red Sea. Grab your scuba diving or snorkeling gear and plunge beneath the water's surface to explore one of the most beautiful and best preserved coral reefs in the world. Go swimming, sailing, surfing or water skiing. Here, on this beautiful shoreline, a vast array of water sports are on offer. Less active travelers may enjoy a ride on board a glass bottom boat.
You will head to the spectacular desert landscape of Wadi Rum in the early afternoon. Here, rock bridges and red sandstone mountains join vast expanses of desert sand to create an environment likened to the "Valley of the Moon."
Upon arrival, embark on a jeep tour of the Wadi Rum desert, then, head to a Bedouin camp to enjoy dinner around the campfire and overnight in a Bedouin tent.
Explore the Ancient Rose-Red City of Petra
After breakfast, get ready to visit the rose-red city of Petra, one of the most magnificent and mysterious cities in the world.
Your journey begins on horseback as you venture through the narrow gorge leading to that most iconic of sandstone facades, Al Khazna, otherwise known as the Treasury of Petra. Continue your exploration of this city built by Arab Nabateans as you venture along pink-hued streets past royal tombs, temples, churches, museums, and the Monastery.
After your visit to Petra, head back to Wadi Rum for dinner around the camp fire and overnight. Some tours include an optional excursion back to Petra for a night visit.
See the Ancient Mosaic Map of the Holy Land
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, and then your adventure continues to the Crusader castle of Shobak. Built in 1115 by Baldwin I of Jerusalem, the castle perches on the side of a rocky, conical mountain, looking out over the fruit trees below.
Stop at Dana, a small village, situated on the edge of a spectacular gorge that also happens to be one of Jordan's premier nature reserves and eco-tourism sights. The reserve was established by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature under the guidance of Queen Noor.
Continue to Madaba, famous for its Byzantine mosaics. Many were discovered in private homes when the owners dug foundations or gardens. The most famous can be found in St. George’s Church, where you will see the stunning first century mosaic map of the Holy Land.
Finally, you'll visit Mount Nebo, thought to be Moses' burial place, before heading to your hotel in Amman.
Tour The Roman City of Jerash And The Highlights Of Amman
Today you will explore the northern regions of Jordan, beginning with the Roman city of Jerash. The tour starts at the imposing triple-arched gateway built to honor the Emperor Hadrian's arrival at Jerash in 129 A.D. Visit the Temples of Zeus, the mile-long Street of Columns, the Cardo Maximus, the colonnaded streets, theaters, baths, and over 17 churches that were unearthed in in this impressive archaeological site.
Back in the capital city, you will set out on a city tour of Amman that includes visits to both the old and new parts of town. Highlights include the King Abdullah Mosque, the Citadel and Amman theater, a stroll through one of Amman's oldest neighborhoods, and a stop in one of Amman's oldest houses, where you can enjoy an Arabic coffee or tea, with Jordanian dates.
You'll also visit the Greco-Roman theater with its 6,000 seats.
Soak In The Mineral-Rich Waters of the Dead Sea
Today your adventure continues with a visit to the Dead Sea. Situated 398 meters (1,206 feet) below sea level, this is the lowest spot on earth. It is the perfect place to end your trip to Jordan. Soak in these healing waters, float on the sea's buoyant surface, and be enriched by this warm, fertile region.
You will understand why this therapeutic water has drawn inhabitants to this region for millennia.
In the afternoon you will drive back to Aqaba, where it all started.
