DISCOVER JORDAN

A full and rewarding itinerary encompassing Jordan's religious, cultural and historical treasures

'Match me such a marvel, save in Eastern clime; a rose-red city, half as old as Time." John William Burgon famously described Petra, founded 2,000 years ago by the Nabataeans and re-discovered by Burckhardt over 200 years ago. Our 'Perspectives of Petra' maximises your enjoyment of this astonishing site.

Jordan is a journey through religious and ancient history: from Mount Nebo, burial site of Moses, from where he viewed the 'Promised Land' to Bethany, baptism site of Jesus on the river Jordan; from Madaba's mosaic map of ancient Palestine to Jerash, best preserved Roman city of the Decapolis and known as 'Pompeii of the East'; from the evocative Desert Castles of the Umayyad caliphs, used as a refuge by T.E. Lawrence to the Crusader castle of Kerak on the King's Highway. Jordan's natural beauty is all around, best displayed in dramatic Wadi Rum, used for the filming of 'Lawrence of Arabia'.
