What to expect

Leaving Tel Aviv in the morning, you'll be driven up the Israeli side of the Jordan Valley and cross the Jordan River Border Crossing. Passing by beautiful landscapes of northern Jordan, you'll arrive at the ancient city of Jerash, an incredibly well-preserved Roman city of colonnaded streets, mosaics, baths, temples, and a marvelous hippodrome – a true blend of Eastern and Western architectural traditions.

Your following stop will be the capital city of Amman. You'll see both the modern downtown of the city and the old Citadel above the city, which includes the Temple of Hercules and historic palaces. You will have lunch in a local restaurant, and try out some sweet kanafeh for dessert. The tour will then continue south towards the desert, taking you to the Bedouin camp where you'll stay for the night. The Bedouins, nomadic inhabitants of the desert, have lived in the region for thousands of years, and will share their tasty meals and comfortable tents with you.

The second day is devoted to Petra, one of the seven wonders of the world, and Jordan’s most treasured attraction, Petra is an unforgettable place. It was carved into the red rocks of the soaring cliffs in the early 1st century as the tomb of a Nabataean king and was hidden under sand for centuries before recently becoming accessible again. You will tour through the Visitor Centre, Siq, Treasury and Amphitheater with your guide who will explain the sites and history along the way.

Then you will have free time to continue individually as you wish: climb to the Royal Tombs, walk down the Roman Cardo, hike up to the Monastery, and explore the different sites. You'll then meet the group again for a late lunch in Wadi Musa before heading back to Tel Aviv via the Allenby border crossing.
