Below Itinerary is based on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday Departures*
PLEASE NOTE That the tour is based on minimum 2 Pax on the tour.

Day 1 – Amman Airport to Amman
Fly from UK Departure point to Amman for an overnight stay.
- Overnight: Amman.

Day 2 – Pella, Um Qais to Amman
After breakfast, enjoy a full day visit to both Pella and Um Qais. Starting with Pella, you will experience one of the World's most ancient towns; a favorite of archeologists, Pella is exceptionally rich in antiquities, and is home to the excavated ruins from the Greco-Roman period. Pella also offers visitors the opportunity to see the remains of the Chalcolithic settlement from the 4th millennium BC, evidence of Bronze and Iron Age walled cities, early Islamic residential quarters, Byzantine churches and a medieval mosque. Um Qais is one of the most brilliant ancient Greco-Roman cities of the Decapolis, and is set on a hilltop overlooking the Jordan Valley and the Sea of Galilee. Um Qais boasts impressive ancient remains, such as the stunning black basalt theatre, the basilica and adjacent courtyard strewn with nicely carved black sarcophagi, the colonnaded main street and a side street lined with shops, an underground mausoleum, two baths, a nymphaeum, a city gate and the faint outlines of what was once a massive hippodrome. After this visit you will drive to the hotel in Amman for an overnight stay.
- Overnight: Amman.

Day 3 – Amman, Jerash, Dead Sea to Amman
After breakfast, enjoy a full day visit to both Jerash and The Dead Sea. Jerash, ‘the Jewel of the North’, is one of the largest and most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside of Italy. The ancient city of Jerash is now generally known as being one of the best-preserved Roman provincial towns in the world. Hidden for centuries in sand before being excavated and restored over the past 70 years, Jerash provides a fine example of the grand, formal provincial Roman urbanism that is found throughout the Middle East, with paved and colonnaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, magnificent theatres, spacious public squares and plazas, baths, fountains and city walls pierced by towers and gates. Continue on to the Dead Sea, one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world and the lowest point on Earth. The Jordan Rift Valley is a dramatic, beautiful landscape, which at the Dead Sea, is over 400m below sea level. 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. Although sparsely populated and serenely quiet now, the area is believed to have been home to five Biblical cities: Sodom, Gomorrah, Adman, Zebouin and Zoar (Bela). Return to the hotel in Amman for an overnight stay.
- Overnight: Amman.

Day 4 - Amman, Madaba, Mount Nebo, Kerak to Petra
After breakfast, enjoy a drive along the 2000-year old Kings Highway - the ancient road mentioned in the Bible - which links prehistoric villages from the Stone Age to biblical towns. Stop at Madaba, ‘The City of Mosaics’, 30km south of Amman. 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. Then it is on to Mt. Nebo, known as the burial place of the Prophet Moses, which 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 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. Proceed to Petra for an overnight stay.
- Overnight: Petra.

Day 5 – Petra
After breakfast, enjoy a full day visit of the “Rose Red City” of Petra - a treasure of the ancient world and recently voted as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is without a doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985, you will begin your visit to Petra with a walk or a short horse ride through the “Siq”, a 1210-meters long narrow canyon. As you reach the end of the Siq, the first and greatest monument of Petra slowly comes into view - the famous Treasury monument “Al Khazneh”. Petra was built by the Arab Nabateans more than 2000 years ago, who carved their monumental tombs, palaces, temples and treasury from the desert’s natural rose-colored rocks and sandstones. Allow our professional guide to walk you through the architectural and spiritual wonders of this majestic place explaining every detail, before taking an overnight stay at a hotel in Petra.
- Overnight: Petra.

Day 6 - Petra, Little Petra, Wadi Rum to Amman
After breakfast, take a short 10min drive to visit Little Petra, ‘Al-Beidha’, an important suburb of the City of Petra. You enter the site through a narrow gorge called Siq al-Barid - the "cold Siq" - a name which refers to the fact that the high walls prevent sunlight from entering the canyon and warming it up. The Siq is 350 meters long with three wider areas inside. Buildings were 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. Continue to Wadi Rum, Jordan’s vast and echoing desert, for a 4x4 jeep ride. Stunning in its natural beauty, Wadi Rum epitomizes the romance of the desert. 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 camps scattered throughout the area. Climbers are especially attracted to Wadi Rum because of its sheer granite and sandstone cliffs, while hikers can enjoy the vast empty spaces. Wadi Rum is probably best known for its connection with British officer T.E. Lawrence, who was based there during the Great Arab Revolt of 1917-18. Much of David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia was filmed in Wadi Rum. Return to Amman for an overnight stay.
- Overnight: Amman.

Day 7 – Amman
Enjoy a free day at leisure in Amman, including an overnight stay.
- Overnight: Amman.
