Day 2: Amman – Pella – Um Qays - Amman

You will be visiting  the excavated ruins from the Greco-Roman period, as well as have the opportunity to see the remains of Chalcolithic settlement from the 4th millennium BC, evidence of Bronze and Iron Age walled cities, Byzantine churches, early Islamic residential quarters and a small medieval mosque.

You will then proceed to Umm Qays which is one of the most brilliant ancient Greco-Roman cities of the Decapolis. Um Qays is ideally located on a splendid hilltop overlooking the Jordan Valley and the Sea of Galilee and boasts impressive ancient remains such as the stunning black basalt theatre, the basilica and adjacent courtyard strewn with carved black sarcophagi. You will also visit the local shops, an underground mausoleum, two baths, a nymphaeum, a city gate and the faint outlines of what was a massive hippodrome.

Drive to Amman for overnight stay.

Day 3: Amman – Jerash – Dead Sea - Amman

After breakfast, you will proceed for a full day tour starting in Jerash which is known to be the Jewel of the North and one of the largest most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside Italy. In Jerash, you will see a fine example of the grand, formal provincial Roman urbanism which comprises paved and colonnaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, handsome theatres, spacious public squares and plazas, baths, fountains and city walls pierced by towers and gates.

You will then continue to the Dead Sea - the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world as well as the lowest point on Earth. Here you will visit the Jordan Rift Valley which is a beautiful landscape. The waters reach the Dead Sea they are land-locked and have nowhere to go, so they evaporate, leaving behind a dense, rich, cocktail of salts and minerals that supply industry, agriculture and medicine with some of its finest products. The Dead Sea is flanked by mountains to the east and the rolling hills of Jerusalem to the west, giving it an almost other-worldly beauty.

Return to the hotel in Amman for overnight.

Day 4: Amman – Madaba - Mount Nebo – Kerak – Petra

After breakfast, you will drive along the 2000 year old Kings Highway which is the ancient road mentioned in the Bible and links prehistoric villages from the Stone Age and biblical towns. You will stop at Madaba “The City of Mosaics” and visit the town’s main attraction, the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George where the famous 6th Century Byzantine mosaic map of the Holy Land and other biblical sites is found.

You will then proceed to Mt. Nebo which is known as the burial place of Prophet Moses and offers a spectacular view of the Holy Land.

Continue driving via the Kings Highway to Kerak, the magnificent Crusader Castle built in the 12th century AD, which is situated on a hilltop about 1000 meters above sea level and surrounded by a valley on three sides. Kerak has been inhabited since at least the Iron Age and was an important city for the Moabites.

Return to the hotel in Petra for overnight.

Day 5 - Full day in Petra

After breakfast, you will enjoy a full day visit to the treasure of the ancient world “Rose Red City” of Petra. The ancient Nabatean city of Petra was recently voted as one of the Seven Wonders of the World and in 1985, Petra was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is without a doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. Your visit will begin by enjoying a walk or a short horse ride from Petra’s main entrance to the entrance of the old city through the “Siq”, which is a 1210 meters long narrow canyon. As you reach the end of the Siq, the first and famous Treasury monument of Petra “Al Khazneh” will slowly comes into view. The Nabateans carved their monumental tombs, palaces, temples and treasury from the desert’s natural rose-colored rocks and sandstones. Indulge yourself and allow our professional guide to walk you through the architectural and spiritual wonders of this majestic place explaining every detail.

Overnight stay in Petra.

Day 6: Petra – Little Petra, ‘Al-Beidha’ – Wadi Rum – Amman

After breakfast, you will take a short 10 minutes drive to visit Little Petra, ‘Al-Beidha’ which is an important suburb of the City of Petra. You will enter the site through a narrow gorge called Siq al-Barid, which is 350 meters long with three wider areas inside. Like in Petra, buildings have been carved into the sandstone, used as residences, storages and tombs, with water channels and cisterns. In one of the buildings, you can find the remains of painted frescoes with birds, grapes and flowers, dating back to the 1st century AD.  

You will then continue to Jordan’s vast and echoing desert “Wadi Rum” for a 4x4 jeep ride. With its "moonscape" of ancient valleys and towering sandstone mountains rising out of the sand, Wadi Rum is also home to several Bedouin tribes who live in scattered camps throughout the area. Wadi Rum is probably best known because of its connection with the enigmatic British officer T.E. Lawrence, who was based here during the Great Arab Revolt of 1917-18. Much of David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia was filmed in Wadi Rum.
