Arrive Amman, Jordan

Arrive in Amman, and transfer to your luxurious hotel.

Amman

After a welcome briefing at your hotel, set out on a full-day tour of Amman. See the Citadel and Roman Theater, and walk down Rainbow Street, with an opportunity to view the first house of the king. Then, take a private winery tour at Saint George, meeting with winemaker Omar Zumot himself to learn about wine production in Jordan. Enjoy a wine tasting, followed by lunch. Before the day comes to a close, explore the Museum of Jordan.

Ajloun/Jerash

Drive to see the 12th-century castle of Ajloun, a superb example of Islamic architecture occupying a strategic position and an important link in the defensive chain against the Crusaders. The fortress is built upon the apex of the hill above the city, offering a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside. On a clear day you can see the Dead Sea, the Jordan Valley, the West Bank and the Sea of Galilee. Proceed to Jerash, a third-century city decimated by invasion and earthquake, often called “The Pompeii of the Middle East.” After a local lunch, explore the massive ruins, which are spread over a large area crisscrossed by colonnaded streets. The pavement still shows the grooves of chariot wheels.

Madaba

Drive to Mount Nebo, where the Bible says Moses glimpsed the Promised Land — which he would never enter. It is here that he spent his final days. Follow mountain-fringed King’s Highway through the beautiful Gorge of Amman to Madaba, known for its sixth-century mosaic map of Jerusalem and the Holy LandÍž comprised of two million pieces of colored stone, it depicts villages as far away as the Nile Delta. Visit the Madaba School of Mosaic, dedicated to preserving and restoring the ancient mosaics found throughout Jordan, especially on the Madaba Plateau. Continue to Petra and check in to your hotel.

Petra

Spend a full day exploring the “Rose-Red City” of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site sculpted from a mountain range by the Nabataeans in the third century BC. Visit the Temple of Winged Lions, the Corinthian Tomb and the Palace Tomb. Other major sites include the Treasury, the baths, markets and storerooms.

Wadi Rum

Traverse Wadi Rum by 4x4 vehicle, joining your local guide where T. E. Lawrence lived with his Bedouin allies during World War I. Bedouin camps are evident in the Wadi, and many welcome visitors with open arms. Pause to enjoy lunch beneath a Bedouin tent before continuing your drive to the Dead Sea and your luxury resort hotel. Spend the balance of the day at leisure.

Dead Sea/Bethany

This morning, set off for Bethany Beyond the Jordan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where John the Baptist is said to have baptized Jesus. Return to your hotel and take a dip in the buoyant, mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea.

Depart Dead Sea

Transfer to the airport to board your homebound departure or transfer to the Allenby Bridge to cross over to Israel.
