See the Itinerary for full details.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Amman – Petra (D)
Start your tour with a hotel pickup in Amman, and then travel by minibus to Petra, the rose-tinged rock city in the Jordan’s Shara Mountains. After traveling for around 3.5 hours, check in to your hotel in time for dinner, and then spend the rest of your evening at leisure. Many of Petra’s daytime visitors leave in the late afternoon, so the evening is the best time of the day to explore the streets at leisure.

Day 2: Petra – Wadi Rum (B, D)

Enjoy a hotel pickup after breakfast, and then start your Petra sightseeing tour with a visit to the Siq, the city’s most dramatic natural feature. Acting as an entrance corridor, the 1-mile (1.5-km) gorge – lined by looming sandstone cliffs – leads to the center of the city. Pass its final bend and come face-to-face with Petra’s crowning glory – the magnificent Treasury. Called Al-Khazneh locally, the building is famous for its colonnaded Hellenistic façade, carved into the cliff face to dramatic effect. Pose for photos in front of the monument, and then continue your tour of town, learning about the Nabataeans who built the city.

Visit Petra Church – a beautiful structure, re-designed by the Byzantines – and then walk around the Royal Tombs, a vast burial site just above the valley floor. Take a look inside the ampitheater and imagine it in its heyday when some 3,000 people sat inside it.

After a break for lunch (own expense), return to your minibus and travel further south to Wadi Rum, the vast desert where scenes fromLawrence of Arabia were filmed. Your destination is a large camp site in the middle of the desert, where you’ll spend the night enjoying dinner and sleeping in tents.

Day 3: Wadi Rum – Aqaba (B, D)

After breakfast, hop inside your spacious 4x4 jeep, and then explore Wadi Rum in a caravan convoy, traveling over red-sand dunes and around the granite mountains that punctuate the desert landscape. After your 2-hour tour of the desert, return to the camp site to collect your bags and then leave Wadi Rum by minibus.

Travel to nearby Aqaba, Jordan’s sunny southern city, and then check in to your hotel. Spend the rest of your afternoon at leisure, and then enjoy dinner at your hotel in the evening.

Day 4: Aqaba – Amman (B)
Enjoy breakfast and then the morning is yours to do as you please. Perhaps visit the city’s famous beaches to lounge at leisure, or pay a visit to Ayla – Aqaba’s ancient church. Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time, check out of your hotel and travel north to Amman. Your 4-day tour finishes with a drop-off at your Amman hotel.

    Friendly country but 1st trip Petra we got adviced to tip the guide 20-25 Joran dinar for 2hrs that' £32 and the driver kept telling our to tips everyone and Every lunch or shopping trip took us to the places willing to pay him high commission. In Aquaba the seafood restrutant told us 10 dinars for seafood meal but the bill turn up 17.50 and one of the shopping trips he angrily shouted at us because he tried to get the shop to over charge us which we asked other shopper how much they paid .turn out $10 for 5 items but we got told $10 for 3 etc,,,,a lots more .......

    I visited Jordan for 4 days and wanted to get the most out of my trip so I decided to book this private tour. My driver Eyad was fantastic- very professional and gave me a lot of info on places that we drove by and stopped to show my some beautiful photo-worthy locations in Jordan. My first day I was picked up at the airport at Amman and we drove Straight to Petra, spent the day exploring in Petra with a very knowledgeable guide- Ishmail, for the first half of the day, and i spent the rest of the day exploring myself. We went back to see Petra at night under candlelight- one of the most beautiful scenes. Day 2 morning was spent at Petra again as I wanted to do a couple of different hiking routes. In the afternoon we drove to Wadi Rum- the most spectacular place you'll ever see! Spent the night camping with the Bedouins under the stars. For dinner they made the most mouthwatering lamb and chicken cooked underground. Day 3 morning we went for a sunrise 4x4 ride, saw some spectacular scenes and drove around the desert. Experiences I will never forget! After the drive and breakfast at the camp, we drove to Aqaba to our beach side resort in Tala Bay. Day 3 evening and Day 4 was spent relaxing by the beach and i went parasailing. There are other water activities to indulge in such as snorkeling or diving for those who are interested. I was lucky to get amazing weather during my trip. April is definitely the time to go. Day 4 we drove back to Amman. I do want to point out that everything that is not mentioned in the tour listing will end up costing extra- any detours that add miles to the car will cost more (i wanted to drive down the Dead sea highway instead of the Desert highway from Aqaba to Amman but the added distance is added cost), any monuments that are not listed (such as Little Petra) will be additional. Airport pickup was also 20 JD more. Some meals are included, but not all. I went to Petra for 2 days so i also had the pay the 5 JD extra for a 2 day ticket. Overall a wonderful trip as long as you can keep your additional expenses under control since the tour is very expensive to begin with. I am a solo female traveler and this trip offered the safety and security in a country that I'm not familiar with.

    My wife and I who are in our mid seventies thoroughly enjoyed our 4-day tour with Hasan our driver. He picked us up directly from the airport and advised us on the best way to include the Dead Sea which is not on the standard intinerary. We looped through Madaba, Mt Nebo and the Dead Sea on our way to Petra. It was a long day but Mt Nebo and the Dead Sea are must sees. We spent 6 hours going through Petra, the first 2 hours with our very informative guide Mohamed, then another 4 hours on our own. We managed the donkey ride and hike up to the lookout above the Monastery. The weather was ideal for walking. Wadi Rum is a beautiful, peaceful place although the lack of electricity meant no hot showers after our day in Petra. We took an evening bus ride and a short glass-bottom boat ride at Aqaba but neither were particularly memorable. All our 3star accommodation was satisfactory, the Golden Tulip at Aqaba being the nicest. We are happy to recommend this tour with the proviso that you include a Dead Sea option.

    Amazing tour with an amazing tour guide and driver Amer. Perfect timing. We were able to add in extras like snorkelling in the coral reef in aqaba. Also a knowledgeable tour guide who knows Jordan and jordanian culture who would stop to show us extra things. Would thoroughly recommend. The hotels were all ok except the Petra Palace, run down with poor food options.

    This was amazing. This was a private tour so the tour itself was very flexible in what we wanted to do and amendments to our plan. If you are a couple or a small group - we highly recommend the private tour.

    Very good. Interesting and well done. Accommodations were comfortable and food was good.
    I suggest you tell guests in advance what to expect to pay out of pocket in JDs and tips. Also, tell guests that
    very loud music will be played late into the evening at Bedouin camp so families know what to expect.
    Thanks for a good tour.
