Discover Jordan and follow in the footsteps of the Bedouin heritage.
Today spend a full day visiting the red rose city of Petra, the biggest attraction of Jordan. You will have a 4 hours guided visit with an official cultural guide, and you will have additional free time to explore areas of the site on your own. Petra was first established around the 6th century B.C. by the Nabataean Arabs, a nomadic tribe who settled in the area and founded a commercial empire. Starting your tour walking through the Siq, the first monument you see is the beautiful Treasury. Walk from here to the Street of Facades, the Royal Tombs and Pharaoh’s Castle, and if you wish, explore further amazing structures including the Monastery and the High Place of Sacrifice. Take lunch in one of the restaurants located within the site itself, and spend a second night in your hotel in Petra.
Travel one and a half hours from Petra to Jordan’s most recent UNESCO world heritage site, the spectacular desert of mountains, Wadi Rum. After a first tea with your local Bedouin guide, you will ride friendly camels through wide, golden valleys, take a jeep tour through the desert to see amazing natural rock bridges (you can even climb one!) and walk through one of the beautiful hidden canyons of the desert. After watching a beautiful desert sunset you will spend a night under 1,000 stars in a private, secluded Bedouin camp dining on freshly-cooked traditional food and sleeping in comfortable goat hair tents.
We drive onward to Aqaba, Jordan’s premier Red Sea destination, to enjoy a day of rest and relaxation. Choose to shop in the duty-free economic free zone, watch the world go by from one of the welcoming cafes, relax on one of Aqaba’s golden beaches or rent a snorkel and discover the underwater wonders of the Red Sea where you can see schools of multi-coloured fish. You can even take a trip in a glass-bottomed boat! Dinner at your best convenience ; we recommend you Ali Baba restaurant, famous for its variety of local meals, especially the famous Sayadiyah, a speciailty of Aqaba, cooked with fish from the Red Sea. Overnight in one of our selection of hotels.
