Experience the extraordinary beauty of the desert of Wadi Rum, the rosy red sand with towering cliffs of various brownish, reddish, and golden colors on this private full day trip from Amman. Set off by your private, comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle to the protected desert valley of the moon, located 4 hours south of Amman. Enjoy the views as you travel southward through Jordans desert landscapes toward the towering cliffs of Wadi Rum. Extending across a huge chunk of south Jordan, this protected valley boasts towering sandstone mountains, craggy river beds, and steep gorges; all coated in a kaleidoscope of natural rock colors, from pinks to vivid reds. Explore its spectacular beauty spots in a 2-hour tour by 4x4 Jeep with a Bedouin Driver who is your Local Guide. Photo shoot at the Martian Movie Spot, explore the walk on mars, trundle through narrow gorges and red desert plains past crimson dunes, natural rock bridges and towers. Amongst this emptiness and silence, visit the seven pillars of wisdom, and the holographic pictures carved before Christ. View ancient inscriptions, and the Lawrence of Arabia Spring; a hidden oasis made famous by T.E. Lawrence, also known as Lawrence of Arabia, where the movie has taken place. During WWI, this British officer and archaeologist fought here alongside the Bedouin Arabs against the Ottoman Turks, basing his headquarters in the valley. Many Wadi Rum sites are named after this still-revered British soldier. Have your camera ready as you pass through narrow gorges and plains, framed by natural rock arches, towering buttes, ancient caves, and red dunes. Visit a Bedouin tent to enjoy a glass of refreshing local mint tea and meet the friendly locals. If you wish, upgrade your tour to include a 30-minute camel ride in the desert for your exploration to make your visit extra special. When the time comes, reconvene with your driver and relax on your ride back to Amman, where your day trip finishes back at your hotel.

Good driver very helpful, informative and eager to make our trip enjoyable. Wadi rum is fascinating with lots of history and culture
We were very pleased with our tour guide, he was very helpful and professional. The trip was well organised. Wonderful views!
Our driver, Amer from Zaid Tours, was excellent. He picked us up promptly at our hotel and we made the three hour drive to Wadi Rum. Zaid Tours had arranged a private guided tour and a camel ride, with lunch. We had a great time and learned a lot from Amer about not just the area but the history as well. He was great. He took the time to make a video of us on our camel ride and surprised us by sending it electronically that same evening. It was a great experience overall. Zaid Tours, and Amer, provided excellent service.
Outstanding time, great driver, and really a must see on short time in Jordan.
We had a great trip to Wadi Rum. Our tour guide Shadi was amazing. He was informative and provided us with an amazing experience. Not only would I recommend Viator for tours, I would absolutely request Shadi while in Jordan! I have already recommended him to a few friends. A great experience all round.
As we were also going to Petra, the driver suggested that the visits be combined. Great idea otherwise we would have travelled over much of the same desert road two days in a row. Wadi Rum was terrific, and would love to see more of it sometime.
An amazing day away from Amman! Wadi Rum is so peaceful and relaxing, its the perfect getaway from the craziness of Amman. The camel ride was a perfect addition to the tour a true Bedouin experience.
