Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,081

MODERATE | ESCORTED COACH TOUR: Sample the highlights of Jordan on this incredible journey through the country. Starting in the capital, Amman, you’ll tour the country to float in the Dead Sea, explore ancient Greco-Roman ruins at Jerash, marvel at the majesty of Petra, and experience the iconic desert at Wadi Rum.


This 8-day Jordan vacation takes you to the most popular sites in the country, including the Dead Sea, Petra, and Wadi Rum.

Your Jordan tour begins in Amman, the nation’s capital and the perfect entry point when travelling to Jordan. Situated in the mountains, Amman is a modern city that’s quickly becoming the most attractive in the region after Dubai and Doha. While the city itself skews modern, it’s located on a significant archaeological site, known as Ain Ghazal. A morning tour will introduce you to the sites, including the Citadel that sits atop Jabal al-Qala’a Hill, the ancient Roman Theatre from the 2nd century, and the Archeology Museum.

After exploring Amman, head to the Dead Sea, the inland lake that’s the lowest geographic point on the planet. Go for a dip and feel the water keep you afloat as the salt and minerals cleanse your skin. Afterwards, continue to Um Qais in the northwestern corner of the country. This ancient historical site offers breathtaking views over the Jordan Valley, the Sea of Galilee, and Golan Heights. If you’ve read the Bible, you’ll also be intrigued to know this is the alleged spot where Jesus cast a legion of demons into a group of pigs.

The next day, explore Jerash, where Hadrian’s Arch signals the border of an ancient Greco-Roman city that was renowned for its wealth and political importance. Visit the site’s ancient theatres, temples, and churches and marvel at the remarkable state of preservation. Continue along to Ajloun, an ancient market town that’s home to a gorgeous 600-year-old mosque with a breathtaking stone minaret. Here you’ll visit the Saracen Castle that has guarded the town from the hilltop for around a thousand years.

You’ll continue your exploration of the past by heading to Madaba the next day. This market town is best known for its Byzantine mosaics, the most noteworthy of which graces the floor of St. George’s Church. In Madaba you’ll also see the oldest existing map of the Holy Land and visit the Mosaic School before heading along to Mt. Nebo. This mountain of rocky outcrops and churches is the apparent site where Moses first laid eyes on the Promised Land. It’s also the site of Moses' death and burial; you’ll visit Moses alleged burial site and enjoy views over the Dead Sea and Israel. Continue to Karak, one of the most famous Crusader castles in all of the Middle East. This castle factored into many significant battles between Saladin and the Crusaders and remains one of the best castles in the region.

Close out your Jordan vacation with the iconic one-two punch of its most famous sites: Petra and Wadi Rum. Petra is the ancient city carved into the walls of a valley in the country’s south. The outer world first discovered it in the 19th century and ever since, its incredible stone-carved temples and antechambers have drawn travellers from all over the world. During a full day visit to Petra, you’ll walk through the Siq, visit the Treasury and Roman Theatre, and see the various courts and temples, such as the Temple of the Winged Lion. The next day pass on to Wadi Rum, the quintessential desert spot in the country. The famous epic movie Lawrence of Arabia used Wadi Rum as a primary filming location. You’ll spend the day exploring this stark desert landscape and learning about the Bedouin tribes that still cross the sand dunes on camelback. You’ll also visit the popular coastal city of Aqaba if you have time before returning to Amman to close out your Jordan tours.
