What to expect

You will leave the hotel early in the morning to drive south to the Nabatean Red Rose City of Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, for a classic visit. Upon arrival, enjoy a 2-hour tour of Petra with your guide. First, walk or ride a horse through the famous “siq”, a narrow path of 1.2 kilometers; rock fissure that was once the main entrance to the city, and marvel at your first glimpse of the hauntingly beautiful Treasury “El Khazneh” as the canyon suddenly opens up. Admire this rose-pink masterpiece, originally built to house priceless treasures and capture it on camera. Then, walk through the widening canyon to witness other buildings such as the 3,000-seater Theater, Royal Tombs, and the High Place of Sacrifice: a clifftop altar that was once used for various ceremonies.
After this long walk, return to the capital of Amman, for a panoramic tour of the city’s highlights. Drive around the downtown area past animated markets, churches, and mosques like King Abdullah’s mosque. Gaze in awe at the Roman Amphitheater, carved into a hillside in the 2nd century B.C. and the most important remnant of Amman’s predecessor, the Roman white city of Philadelphia. Free time at leisure in the Amman downtown area for souvenir shopping in the local gold and spice markets.
Your tour then concludes by strolling along Jabal Al Webdeih and Jabal Amman Quarters, the Rainbow Street, Amman’s colorful arts and shopping hot spot. Delve into the upscale neighborhoods of “Abdoun” and “Swefieh”, where luxury shopping malls and swanky private villas line the streets. After passing through the modern Amman drive back to your hotel.
