Know More about this tour

Traveling with a friendly, professional driver, your 3-night tour takes you into Jordans interior to experience some of the natural and archaeological gems hidden in its beautiful desert landscapes.

After an overnight stay in Amman on Day 1, enjoy a guided walking tour of the age-old, UNESCO-listed rock city of Petra on Day 2. On Day 3, after an overnight stay in Petra, take in the stunning desert scenery of Wadi Rum on a 4x4 and then continue to the Dead Sea. Enjoy time here to float in the incredible, salt-rich waters before you wend your way back to Amman and spend a last night at your hotel in the city.

A choice of hotel accommodation is available on your tour: choose from Jordans tourist-class, prime-class or superior-class hotels depending on your budget. Breakfast and dinner are included at each hotel and theres ample time to enjoy lunch at your own expense on each day.

Please see the itinerary below for details on each day of the tour.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Amman Queen Alia International Airport - Amman (D)
Start your Jordan experience with an airport transfer to your hotel in Amman. Check in, and then enjoy dinner in your hotel.

Day 2: Amman - Petra (B, D)
After breakfast and a hotel pickup by your car and driver, travel south through the rugged desert landscapes to Petra, the ancient rock city in Jordan’s Shara Mountains — your time on the road is roughly 3 hours.

After lunch (own expense), enjoy 2-hour walking tour of this awe-inspiring Nabataean city and UNESCO World Heritage site with a local guide. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, Petra was carved into a sandstone gorge more than 2,000 years ago to dominate the trading routes of ancient Arabia and is rightly regarded as the jewel in the crown of Jordan’s historic sights.

Walk along the narrow Siq, the high-walled fissure in the rocks that winds into the heart of the city. Then, stop in your tracks at your first breathtaking glimpse of the Treasury, known locally as El-Khazneh —Petra’s stellar sight. Wonder at its intricate façade and hear how movies such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade were filmed here.

Take photos of this glorious monument and then continue your tour. See Petra’s ornate tombs cut into the rock face and admire the stunning theater that once sat 3,000 spectators. As you walk, hear stories and facts about the ingenious Nabataeans who chose, carved out and then made this place their home so long ago. After your walking tour finishes, check in and enjoy dinner at your hotel.

Day 3: Petra - Wadi Rum - Dead Sea - Amman (B, D)
Start your day with breakfast at your hotel and then travel to the spectacular desert wilderness of Wadi Rum. Sometimes known as the ‘Valley of the Moon’ for its lunar-like landscapes, this protected region of mountains, dunes and canyons was where TE Lawrence, known as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ fought alongside the Bedouin locals in World War I.

The locals have named many of the sites in Wadi Rum after Lawrence and numerous scenes from the iconic movie, Lawrence of Arabia, were filmed on location here. Enjoy an exhilarating 2-hour trip by 4x4 through this majestic place to immerse yourself in its serene beauty and ever-changing colors. Rumble along desert valleys, through narrow gorges and past red dunes and mountains and stop to take photos along the way.

After a break for lunch (own expense), travel onward to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. Sitting at 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level, this glittering inland sea contains extraordinarily high levels of salt and minerals, and offers up an incredible experience: the chance to float rather than swim!

Arrive at the Dead Sea Beach Rest House and wade in to experience a short floating session from the beach: it’s an unforgettable sensation. Finish your day by relaxing on the 1-hour journey back to Amman. Check back into your hotel for dinner.

Day 4: Amman (B)
Your 3-night Jordan tour finishes after your hotel breakfast. Check out of your hotel and relax on a convenient airport drop-off at Amman Queen Alia International Airport at a time to fit your flight departure.

    Excellent. Driver Mr arafat very good and cooperative. We enjoyed petra valley excurtion, unbelievable fissures in the rocks
    Mesmerising night stay in wadi rum in ufoluxotel -- a modern tent with all latest amenities
    Ever remembring experience of star gazing under telescope
    Beautiful trip by Viator and Ziyad travel
    First day Landmark hotel gave us high rise room but trip end night low floor with no scenic view . On enquiry the hotel reception put the blame on trip manager
    I will not recommend Land mark hotel.

    My sister and I booked this tour and we both really enjoyed our time. Our guide and driver, Hafez, was super nice and made sure we felt comfortable.
    When we stayed in Amman we stayed at the Olive Hotel. We personally didn't care for this hotel. The positives are that is has excellent wifi and the rooms are spacious. The staff are all very nice. The negatives are that the buffet lacks a lot of variety and there are possible bed bugs in the room we stayed in our first night.
    When we were in Petra we stayed at Petra Palace Hotel. The staff were also very kind. This hotel is on the older side however the rooms were clean and they were cozy. The location is great and they also have excellent wifi. The dinner and breakfast buffet were really good; there was a lot of variety.
    The attraction that I most enjoyed was the desert tour. It was so much fun. I wish I booked an overnight there.
    I would absolutely book this tour again. The only thing I would do different is booking an overnight at the Wadi Rum, spending more time at the Dead Sea, and exploring the city of Amman. These sites are a must see and I wish I had more time to explore more of Jordan.

    My driver Hafez, was a nice guy. He’s kind of funny. During our last night, I said that the San Rock Hotel’s food is not nice, he offered to drop me off at some good dining place. I said, sure and asked him along for some local KFC for which he treated me to the meal.
    The tour to Wadi Rum was amazing and friendly driver. Petra was really fantastic but time was too short. I had 3 hours there. Other than the 30mins walk before one reach The Treasury, the 2 hour private guide was detailed. But when we reach the end of tour before even reaching the Monastery, I’m running short of time. Heading into the Monastery is another 45mins walk (one way) with 900-1000stairs to climb. Would advice a full day at Petra. That should be great. The hotel Movenpick Nabatean in Petra was an amazing hotel facing the pretty Sunset over the horizon.
    Dead Sea was good, but would be even better if it was held at Hilton Instead. As I had it at the Amman Beach Resort (which was a local beach), I wasn’t able to experience the mud spa service.

    My husband and I were met at the airport, driven to our hotel. We paid for 5 star so hotels were good providing breakfast and dinner. Unfortunately dinner was a buffet each night. We were able to delete the trip to the Dead Sea and add a different stop on our way to Wadi Rum. 4 wheel drive in Wadi excellent. We had a private guide in Petra for almost 3 hours and spent another 3 hrs hiking to Monastery and back. Hassan our driver spoke excellent English, was punctual and helped us enjoy our time in Jordan. Highly recommend

    The visit was amazing from pick up to drop. Though I had to cut short and change my plans due to personal emergency, everything was taken care of. Infact I even got a refund on my Wadi Tum trip which I could not take. My drive for this tour - Aarafat was amazing and very helpful. Special mention of my guide in Petra - Saleh. Very knowledgeable and amazing.

    I was a solo female traveller n felt absolutely safe.

    Hassan was a wonderful guide, he was very attentive and took us to some other sites that were not on the specific itinerary, but which we had time to visit. The country and experience was amazing and highly recommended - we were made to feel so welcome by everyone that we met in the country, Jordan is a beautiful place. Thank you to Hassan and Zaid Tours for a trip to treasure.

    What an amazing experience. We were greeted by our driver upon arrival at the airport and he drove us to our hotel where he helped with the check-in process. So no one is surprised, all the hotels have metal detectors and body scanners you have to walk through each time entering the hotel. This wasn't off-putting at all as it's for your safety. Petra is just amazing and much larger than we anticipated. We were told that approximately 90 of it is still underground. Next day we were off to Wadi Rum. We upgraded to a 3 hour jeep tour which was amazing. Our driver took my neck scarf and wrapped my head as a Bedouin and then took red from red rocks and painted my face as well. He showed us how the Bedouin's make soap out of a plant and then in the middle of nowhere we came across a Bedouin he knew that was brewing tea. We stopped and he threw his coat down for us to sit on in the sand and he then proceeded to pour us tea. Spent about half an hour there. Dead Sea was next. There are bowls of mud and you shouldn't miss the experience of slathering it all over your skin. It feels so soft going on. We then went to the water's edge and not quite sure how to approach floating but it just happens. Were told the Dead Sea is evaporating and may not be hear in 40 or so years. Jordan was amazing and we felt perfectly safe while there.

    This was an amazing trip. Our guide suggested a couple of small logistical changes that were right on. Rather than going to Petra on the first day we switched the order of Petra and Wadi Rum. This was GREAT as we arrived at Petra just before it opened and were first in. Many of our pictures don't include any other tourists. It felt like we had the place to ourselves. This made for an awesome experience. We were a bit disappointed with the Dead Sea. 5 minutes to say that we experienced it was good enough. Wadi Rum made up for it. We expected it to be just OK, but will have lots of positive memories. First time riding a camel, and 5 days later I can still feel it. It is an amazing place. Bottom Line: Great Tour.

    We had a particularly poor experience with this tour. We'd paid for 'Prime Class' hotels - which promised western 4 star standard. They were 2-3 star standard with poor food and, in Amman, poor location. Facilities at the Dead Sea were unsanitary. We were made to feel like an inconvenience to our driver. I would not recommend at all.

    What a great tour! Our guide/driver Basel was amazing! He was very informative and made sure we were able to squeeze in some activities that were not part of the tour, like seeing Petra by night which was incredible! Highly recommend this tour and Basel as your guide/driver Zaid Tours.
