The sight of the Great Treasury of Petra is one of the most thrilling travel experiences you will encounter, giving the visitor a great sense of discovery and something very special to savour. There is so much more to Jordan than just Petra though, as this tour will demonstrate. It is a country with a rich and colourful history which has embraced many civilisations. The remarkable site at Jerash reminds us that Jordan was once a prosperous Roman province, and the architecture of numerous churches and castles hints at the country’s Byzantine and Umayyad periods.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Amman

    We fly from London Heathrow to Amman where we stay for the first three nights of the tour at the centrally located 5 star Amman Marriott Hotel.
  • Day 2 - Azraq Castle

    A visit to the city’s Archaeological Museum and the new Jordan Museum will be followed by a drive into the surrounding countryside to see a selection of the beautiful desert castles that dot the landscape, including Azraq Castle which was used by Lawrence of Arabia during the Arab revolt.
  • Day 3 - Jerash

    We will explore Jerash, one of the finest and best-preserved Roman sites to be found anywhere. Its altitude of 500 metres makes for wonderful views over the surrounding fertile countryside which we see as we drive through the Jordan Valley.
  • Day 4 - Shobek

    We leave the capital and drive to Petra, stopping at the Crusader Castle at Shobek. Built in 1115, it is part of a string of imposing castles that stretches from Aqaba to Turkey. We will stay at the Marriott Petra hotel.
  • Day 5 - Petra

    The day is spent at Petra. Situated at the end of the siq, a narrow passage through a cliff, is the magnificent Treasury of Petra. There will be plenty of time for you to explore the other sites of interest, including The Royal Tombs, Qsar El Bint and the Temple of the Winged Lion.
  • Day 6 - Aqaba and Wadi Rum

    Today we visit Aqaba and Wadi Rum, following the route taken by TE Lawrence and Bedouin guerrillas in 1917. We will visit the Ottoman fort at Aqaba in the morning and will then proceed to Wadi Rum for a jeep ride across Jordan’s most spectacular desert landscape.
  • Day 7 - Little Petra

    Today we visit ‘Little Petra’, a smaller archaeological site located north of Petra, which is thought to have been an agricultural and trading centre. The afternoon is free to explore the local area, or you may wish to return to Petra.
  • Day 8 - Mount Nebo

    We leave Petra and travel along the Escarpment to Mount Nebo, where Moses is said to have seen the Promised Land. The tour moves on to the Dead Sea arriving mid-afternoon where we spend the final night of the tour at the 5 star Kempinski Hotel Ishtar.
  • Day 9 - Flight back to London

    We drive to Amman airport for the flight back to London.
