Highlights of Jordan

This journey focuses on unmissable monuments, with time to explore ancient sites to the astounding rock city of Petra, and to enjoy the Red Sea, the Dead Sea, and the desert landscapes

This tour is a shorter and more affordable way to discover Jordan, packing biblical sites, Bedouin camps, Byzantine relics, and Roman ruins into its seven days, along with relaxation in the Red Sea resort of Aqaba, and time to sample the Dead Sea’s mud and mineral spa treatments.

The tour climbs the heights of Mount Nebo, the platform for Moses to view the Promised Land; and visits Madaba to view the mosaic map of ancient Palestine. Beside the River Jordan, where Jesus was baptised, Bethany’s Roman and Byzantine relics include churches, hermit caves and baptism pools; while Greco-Roman ruins of Jerash, with a colonnaded forum and temple, have the epithet “the Pompeii of the East”. Petra, ‘a rose-red city, half as old as time’, was a secret seen only by Bedouins for six centuries but is now one of the New Seven Wonders of the World; and the Seven Pillars of Wisdom mark the desert sands of Wadi Rum.
