Treasures of Petra
A short stay in Aqaba and Petra at a special tariff, utilising the new twice weekly easyJet flights to Aqaba, staying in classic 5-star resorts in prime locations and visiting Petra, Little Petra, Wadi Rum and Shobak castle
Take a guided tour to Jordan for the opportunity to discover a fascinating cultural heritage and diverse natural wonders. Unearth the treasures of the lost city of Petra; drift away on the surface of the Dead Sea; and uncover the lesser-known gems of this small and surprising country.
This year-round destination is excellent for those looking to travel in all seasons. In high season (June-August), individuals will be able to explore without having to worry about excessively hot temperatures, while those looking to book their trip in winter (December-February) can enjoy the warm weather around the Jordan Valley and Red Sea.
Our guided tours to Jordan have been thoughtfully created to showcase its history, beauty and highlights. With visits to Aqaba, Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea on the itineraries, you will have the chance to experience all the best parts of this popular location.
The highlight of any visit to Jordan is Petra. Voted one of the ‘New 7 Wonders of the World’ in 2007, it’s easy to see why. Its rich historical past, ruined Roman cities and desert citadels are Jordan's most valuable treasures. Points of interest are bountiful and include the Street of Façades, the Royal Tombs, a Byzantine church and the incredible, ancient Qasr el-Bint Faroun.
If sipping on cocktails at sunset, hopping aboard a cruise and experiencing the ‘Seven Pillars of Wisdom’ in Wadi Rum sounds like a fantastic trip to you, our Treasures of Petra Jordan tour needs to be added to your must-do list..
If you’re interested in exploring the biblical themes of Jordan, you could visit Umm Qais was Gadara, where Jesus gave permission to the evil spirits to enter a herd of pigs. Or perhaps viewing the baptism site of Jesus at Bethany, the mosaic of ancient Palestine at Madaba and Mount Nebo might be something you’d prefer?
Red, dusty scenes and arid deserts are a common perception of Jordan’s landscape. See it for yourself and you’ll discover majestic peaks, vast valleys and the unique Dead Sea – the lowest point on the earth’s surface surrounded by a protective, rugged, mountainous terrain. Here you can bathe in the highly saline waters infused with minerals and health enhancing mud whilst on your Jordan tour.
As visitor numbers have increased significantly in Petra in recent years, choosing to book a guided tour to Jordan will ensure that you get to experience both the well-known landmarks as well as the quieter, hidden treasures..
Our Jordan holidays allow you to travel with an experienced guide, meaning you will always be able to ask an expert any questions about your trip.
