Know More about this tour

For two days, youll get a chance to explore some of the worlds oldest and most fascinating archaeological sites on your trip through Jordan. Starting from Tel Aviv, youll board your air-conditioned minivan in the early morning and travel up north to the Sheikh Hussein Bridge Border Crossing.

Passing the countrys northwest, dominated by fertile and ever-changing green landscapes, your first stop will be Jerash. Go on a journey through time in one of the worlds best preserved Roman towns, strolling its perfectly designed theaters, colonnaded streets and vast squares.

Your next stop will be the capital Amman around 1.5 hours away. Its roots go all the way back to the ancient Roman settlement Philadelphia. From the impressive hilltop Citadel, featuring numerous Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic remains, past the bustling streets of Ammans commercial center, to the restored 2nd century Roman Theater that has been incorporated into the downtown area, the city is full of contrasts.

After lunch in a local restaurant, your route will take you to an authentic Bedouin camp near modern Petra. This is where youll enjoy a typical Bedouin dinner at the campfire andsleep overnight in a comfortable traditional tent. Alternatively, you can choose to stay in a nearby 3-star hotel.

Youll board your minivan again just after breakfast, and drive to ancient Petra. One of the new seven world wonders, Petra is the rose-red city half as old as time carved into the sandstone by the Nabataeans some 2.000 years ago. The tour starts guided through the Siq - the narrow gorge acting as an entrance corridor to Petra -, past the treasury and amphitheater, before youre free to continue exploring other impressive sites like the Royal Tombs or the Monastery individually. For lunch, youll meet up together again, before returning back to Tel Aviv via the Allenby Border Crossing.
