Welcome to Jordan! Today we will meet you upon your arrival at Queen Alia International Airport and assist you with your visa to Jordan, and then walk with you outside the airport to meet our private driver.
From here, we’ll continue to Amman for dinner and overnight at our hotel. We know you’re probably tired from flying, so we’ll keep the itinerary light today.
After breakfast at our hotel, we will meet our driver and tour guide at 8:30 a.m. to start our Amman City Tour.
We’ll be exploring the Citadel and the Roman Theatre in downtown Amman, both sites that you absolutely cannot miss while visiting Amman. If we’re lucky, you’ll also hear the sounds of the call to prayer, echoing from the many mosques in the city and bouncing off the hills.
Today we’ll also take a drive to Jerash, site of a former Roman empire. Tonight, we’ll visit Jordan Rivers Design, a women-owned cooperative, to shop for handmade artifacts before dinner together as a group.
Meals: B, L, D
After breakfast, we’ll check out and head to Madaba, “The City of Mosaics” where we will explore the St. George Church of the 6th century A.D. and enjoy the Mosaics of the Holy Land Map.
After a short drive, we arrive at Mount Nebo to retrace with our tour guide the steps of Moses and admire the spectacular view of the Promised Land just as he would have over 2,000 years before.
On a clear day, Jerusalem, Jericho, and the Dead Sea can be seen. A memorial in Moses’ honor can be found at the entrance to the early Byzantine Christian church where Moses is believed to have died.
After, we’ll check into our luxury hotel at the Dead Sea for an afternoon of downtime, floating, and fun.
Meals: B, L, D
We’re in such a beautiful place, so today is yours to just chill and enjoy. Spend your day at the spa, float in the Dead Sea, or soak up the views from the resort’s many infinity pools.
There is a lot to see and do in Jordan, but this is also your vacation — enjoy this relaxing day to unwind in the most gorgeous of places.
Meals: B, D
In the morning we will have breakfast at our Dead Sea hotel and some free time to enjoy the luxurious amenities of the property. Then we will drive towards the ancient crusader castle in Karak to explore the maze of stone-vaulted halls and passageways.
The city of Karak was the capital of Moab and the castle dominates the skyline. The castle provides an impressive insight into the architectural and military skills of the Crusaders. After that, we’ll transfer to Petra for our overnight at a 5-star hotel.
Tonight, we’ll enjoy something very special: seeing Petra at night, lit only by the light of a thousand candles. It’s so magical and perfect it just might make you cry!
This is a special experience that only happens on certain days of the week. We made sure to time this tour just right to give you that opportunity.
Overnight in Petra.
Meals: B, L, D
Today is all about Petra. And for good reason – it’s one of the 7 wonders of the world!
Exploring Petra and its many buildings and vantage points really requires the day, which is why we’re setting out after breakfast. You’ll have time today to hike to the Monastery, walk around to different points of interest, and enjoy this stunning wonder.
Marvel at the beauty of the Lost City, the Red Rose City of Petra, exploring its many caves and tombs. Walk through the canyon and be astounded at the magnificent Treasury, the entrance guarding the ancient Nabatean city, now one of the Modern 7 Wonders of the World.
In the afternoon, the group will meet back up at our meeting point, and return to the hotel for dinner in a Bedouin tent.
Meals: B, L, D
After breakfast, we will drive to Wadi Rum, a nature reserve that honestly looks like Mars (no wonder its been the set of movies from Star Wars to the Martian!)
Today, we’ll enjoy the wilderness adventure of a 4 x 4 jeep tour of Wadi Rum, following in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia, climbing sand dunes and rock bridges.
Our camp tonight is in the middle of the desert, which will give you the chance to marvel at the sunset and gaze at the stars in the night sky whilst enjoying the legendary hospitality of the Bedouin, before sleeping at the foot of the awesome mountains exploding out from the desert landscape.
Dinner and overnight in Wadi Rum.
Meals: B, L, D
After breakfast and checking out of our bubble tents in Wadi Rum, we’ll begin our drive to Aqaba. Arriving early means we have plenty of time to explore the downtown Aqaba spice market – a great place to stock up on spices you’d never find at home!
After lunch, we’ll check into our hotel, and you’ll have the rest of the day at your leisure to relax and enjoy.
Dinner as a group in the evening.
Meals: B, L, D
Today after breakfast we will head as a group to the Aqaba airport to catch a flight to Amman.
Our flight arrives to the Amman airport at 9 a.m, where our tour officially concludes. If you are catching a flight home today, please ensure your return flight departs the Amman airport after 12 noon.
It’s been such an awesome time, and we’re sad this tour has to end. But what an adventure! We know you’ll remember it for years to come.
Accommodation is in rooms in 4 and 5 star properties, as well as one evening in a luxury camp in the desert. Tour is priced for double occupancy, meaning you’ll be sharing a room with one other person.
Plan on spending about $20/day for lunch. Bring another $10-20/day to tip your driver and tour guide.
You’ll fly into Amman’s Queen Alia Airport (AMM). Fly in anytime on Day 1 and in the late afternoon or evening on Day 6.
