Itinerary

Meet the Tour Leader at Malta International Airport at 04:45 hrs for check-in on your direct Ryanair flight to Amman departing at 06:45 hrs. Upon arrival at Amman Airport at 09:55 hrs, your local representative and English-speaking guide will be waiting for you to assist you with the visa procedures. Visa is included. Collection of luggage and proceed to the coach for the transfer to your central Hotel in Petra. During the transfer you will stop en route to visit Kerak Castle and have some free time for lunch (not included). Afterwards you will proceed to La Maison Hotel (or similar) for dinner (included) & overnight.

Breakfast at the hotel and depart for your full day to explore Petra (with your English-speaking Guide), one of the Seven Wonders of the World. This “rose-red city half as old as time” was hewn from sandstone thousands of years ago. Entry by the Siq and visit the Treasury, Street of Facades, Theatre, Colonnaded Street etc. Free time for lunch (not included) inside the site and in the afternoon, you will return to your hotel for short rest & dinner. This will be for sure a day you will always remember, the magical emotion experienced today at the first sight of the Treasury will accompany you during all the duration of this trip. Optional activities for today: Petra Kitchen cooking course, Local Turkish Bath, 1.5/2.5 hours horse ride around the mountains of Petra.

After breakfast, you will depart for your second day visiting Petra with Guide. With the vastness of the site, there is so much to discover that it is impossible to see all in a day. Option to visit also the Monastery and/or the High Place of Sacrifice today. It is a lot of climbing, almost 1000 steps to climb up to the Monastery and the steps are quite uneven and slippery but definitely worth the views and the experience! And for the less fit, you can enjoy a less hectic visit of Petra. Free time for lunch (not included) and early return to hotel for rest and dinner. Optional Petra by Night ($25 per person) from 20.30 to 22.30, which is a magical way to see part of the rock city by candlelight. Explore the old city, by walking the entire Siq to the Treasury, which is lit by over 1,500 candles.

Breakfast & leave to Wadi Rum, a spectacularly scenic desert valley, cut into sandstone and granite rock. 4 hrs Jeep Tour & Picnic (lunch box) in Wadi Rum. A jeep tour is the best way to discover lots of sites in Wadi Rum. The jeep will stop at each site giving you time to walk/scramble around and maybe even climb up on some of the beautiful natural formed bridges in Wadi Rum. (Optional Stargazing Project by night, which can be arranged on the spot) Overnight at the Mazayen Luxury Camp and enjoy the Bedouin hospitality over dinner.

Breakfast & depart from camp for more touring of Wadi Rum. Barbecue Lunch at a beautiful spot in Wadi Rum. After lunch you will depart to the Dead Sea, stopping mid-way for coffee & some souvenir shopping. The Dead Sea is the lowest point on the earth’s surface. You will arrive in the late afternoon at Holiday Inn Resort Dead Sea, room allocation, dinner & overnight at the hotel.

Morning for relaxation and to experience a dip in Dead Sea, float in the salty waters and try out the famous healing mud. Around 11:00 hrs you will depart for the excursion of Mount Nebo, from where Moses viewed the Promised Land. Visit the Sanctuary: the memorial of Moses, the presumed site of his death and burial place, and a centre for pilgrimages since earliest Christian times. Lunch at Mazayen Restaurant in Mount Nebo (not included) and late afternoon transfer back to hotel for dinner & overnight.

Early morning breakfast and depart for your last full day of sightseeing which will start at Bethany beyond Jordan, the Baptism site of Jesus Christ, where John the Baptist prepared the way for the arrival of the Messiah.
