    Leaving Amman this morning, our morning  journey begins with Madaba, including the incredible 6th. century Great Map of Palestine. Discovered in 1896, and only fragmentary, it contains detailed depictions of the important pilgrimage sites throughout the Holy Land, including Jerusalem, and is believed to be the oldest surviving map of Palestine in existence. Our next stop is  Jebel Nebo , better known as Mount Nebo; this has been an important pilgrimage centre for Christians for centuries, principally on account of the fact that just before his death God revealed the Promised Land to Moses from this very summit. We continue to dead sea  At 418m. below sea level this salty expanse of mineral rich water is the lowest point on the Earth and has been revered for centuries for its beneficial properties. Surrounded by barren hills, this remarkable body of water has an amazingly high salt content (33%), which means no animal life can survive here and it is almost impossible to sink!   We will then return to Amman  city for free Evening . And overnight stay.

  • Day 3 : Morning visit to Jerash; free afternoon in Amman .

    This morning we depart the capital and head north, towards ancient Jerash, located in the Gilead Hills. One of Jordan’s major attractions, this beautifully preserved Roman city is considered to be the best preserved of the Decapolis, a confederation of ten Middle Eastern cities under the Emperor Pompeii. One of the highlights of the Middle East , its triple arch gateway gives way to an array of colonnaded streets, theatres, temples and baths that are estimated to represent only about 10% of the entire city, the rest of this incredible site still to be uncovered. We will tour this magnificent venue with a local guide; spend the morning exploring this most captivating of settings. We  return to Amman  city for free afternoon  and overnight stay.

  • Day 4 : Drive to Wadi Rum via Kerak

    Departing Madaba early today our journey first takes us to the imposing Crusader fortress of Kerak, built in 1132 by King Baldwin of Jerusalem to defend the road against the armies of Islam. Imposingly sited on a hilltop, Kerak was once one of a chain of fortresses in the Holy War against Islam, until it finally fell to the forces of Saladin himself, who was so impressed with the courage shown by it’s defenders that he set them free. From Kerak we travel on the desert highway all the way to Wadi Rum where we have two options ;  a camel trek or walking before enjoying our tales from a local bedouin Story Teller and our night under the stars.

    Overnight Standard Camping .Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner 

  • Day 5 : Morning drive in Wadi Rum; evening transfer to Aqaba

    This morning we cross a landscape of Sandstone Mountains and white and pink coloured sands on 4WDs to visit the haunting vistas of Wadi Rum. We enter another world, one inhabited by the nomadic Bedouin peoples for generations and steeped in the legend of Lawrence of Arabia, whose exploits have become stuff of legend. Indeed scenes from the remarkable film of his life were shot here, deep in the fabulous purple-black mountains that rise from the sand of the desert. From here we then make our way by bus to the Gulf of Aqaba and Jordan’s only seaport. Aqaba has had a long history of occupation and trade. King Solomon’s ships left here loaded with copper, whilst the Edomites and the Nabateans used the port as part of a trade route from Damascus to Egypt. The Roman 10th. Legion was stationed here and during the 12th. century the Crusaders made good use of Aqaba’s strategic position before Saladin finally took control of the area. During the later conflicts of World War I, the Arab troops under Prince Faisal used the fort In Aqaba as a base for attacks on the Ottoman forces. As we take our last views out across the Jordan Valley we leave behind the desert and enter a landscape of palm groves and coral reefs, warm glistening water and the impressive backdrop of the Jordanian heights. The rest of the afternoon is free to enjoy this setting, perhaps making the most of the marine wonders off shore with an optional snorkeling trip into Aqaba’s azure water.

  • Day 7 : In Petra

    This morning we drive to one of the world's most beautiful sites; Petra. Surrounded by imposing mountains and approached through a deep, narrow cleft in the rocks known as the Siq, Petra is a unique and unforgettable place and, enhanced by the play of light and shadow, an altogether overwhelming experience. Approaching the Siq we follow its towering sandstone walls towards the site of the captivating and iconic splendour of the beautiful Khazneh (the famous Treasury), one of the city’s most iconic structures. A guided orientation tour will then take us to some of the key parts of this remarkable and ancient site, one of the most impressive and exciting anywhere in the world.. The rest of the day is then free to continue exploring at your leisure, making your own way back to the hotel in your own time.

  • Day 8 : In Petra

    Today you have a full free day at Petra (‘rock’ in Greek). Returning to the city you can climb steep paths to the sacrificial ‘High Places’ (altars) and hike to the top of Jebel Haroon (1396m.) ; for a stunning view over Wadi Araba and the Negev Desert. The Monastery is the largest of Petra’s monuments and certainly worth the steep climb up to it. Towering to a height of 40m.  it’s doorway alone measures 8m. in height, dwarfing anyone framed within it. This is truly a place to lose oneself in the history and ambience of the past. The (optional) plan today is for the younger members of the group to prepare the evening meal and treat their parents to some Middle Eastern delights. Should you wish to learn some of the secrets of Middle Eastern cuisine!
