Overview

A safe haven in a region of conflict, Jordan has delighted visitors for centuries with its World Heritage sites, friendly towns and inspiring desert landscapes. The quickest one stop flight from India takes close to 9hrs however some airlines could take much longer based on stop over, destination and waiting duration. Jordan has a tradition of welcoming visitors: camel caravans plied the legendary King’s Highway transporting frank incense in exchange for spices and Nabataean tradesmen, Roman legionnaires, Muslim armies and zealous Crusaders all passed through the land, leaving behind impressive monuments. Our “Best of Jordan “tour will help you to explore Jordan completely. The tour highlights Amman where you will experience the city tour, Dead Sea - the lowest place on Earth and the only place where you can walk below sea level, Petra - one of the Seven Wonders of the World and is the rock-carved city which was created more than 2,000 years ago, Wadi Rum - Explore the majestic desert of Wadi Rum, Aqaba - Jordan’s sun-drenched southern city. A complete holiday experience with a fun filled 6 days in Jordan.

Day 1

Arrive Amman

Welcome to Jordan! Pick-up from Queen Alia International Airport Amman and transfer to the hotel. Check-in the hotel. Day is free to relax and to explore the city on your own. Overnight stay at the hotel in Amman.

Day 2

Amman – Jerash – Amman

Post breakfast, proceed for city tour and see the sights of downtown Amman from the comfort of your air-conditioned coach. Pass bustling souks (markets), coffee shops and mosques, and get a feel for the frantic pace of day-to-day life in the downtown district. Stop for photos by the Amman’s magnificent Roman Theatre and hear of its use in Roman times when Amman was known as the city of Philadelphia. After a break for lunch in town (own expense), travel north to Jerash, roughly an hour away. One of the best-preserved cities of Jordan’s Decapolis, Jerash is often called the ‘Pompeii of Asia,’ a name that harks to its impressive collection of Roman relics within its ancient city boundaries. See monuments like the Temple of Zeus and colonnaded Oval Plaza (also known as the Forum). Pose for picture by the Temple of Artemis and hear how it was later used as an Arab fortification during the 12th century. Return to Amman in time for dinner at your hotel, and then spend your evening at leisure. Overnight stay at the hotel in Amman.

Day 3

Amman – Dead Sea – Amman

Enjoy a yummy breakfast at the hotel. Post breakfast, travel south to the Dead Sea by coach. Officially the lowest place on Earth and the only place where you can walk below sea level, the Dead Sea is compelling from every angle. After paying your entrance fee to the Dead Sea Resthouse (a resort in the region), spend time at leisure, either bobbing around in its buoyant salty water or lathering yourself in its nutrient-rich mud for a skin-pleasing treat. Bring your camera to capture lunar-like photos of the surrounding Moab Desert and relax in one of the resort's cafes . Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time in the late afternoon, and then travel back to Amman in time for dinner. Overnight stay at the hotel in Amman.

Day 4

Amman – Madaba – Mount Nebo – Petra

After a sumptuous breakfast at the hotel, check-out from the hotel and head south to the market town of Madaba, traveling along the King’s Highway – once a vitally important trade route in the Middle East. Often called the ‘City of Mosaics,’ the city owes its popularity to an incredible mosaic map of the Holy Land that carpets the floor of St George’s Church. Head inside the church to see it for yourself and hear about the ancient biblical sites from your guide. After stopping for lunch in town (own expense), continue traveling to Mount Nebo, the hill where Moses was said to have been granted a view of the Promised Land. Stop to admire views of the Jordan Valley, seeing the ancient lands of Judah and Jericho, and then return to your coach for your journey to Petra. Check-in to the hotel, enjoy dinner and overnight stay at Petra.

Day 5

Petra - City Tour

Head out after breakfast to enjoy a full day of sightseeing in Petra with your guide. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the rock-carved city was created more than 2,000 years ago and its pink-hued streets, lined with long-forgotten tombs and incredible rock buildings are for many the highlight of a trip to Jordan. After your hotel pickup, travel through the Siq — a naturally formed gorge that acts as an entrance corridor to Petra — and then come face-to-face with the grandeur of the Treasury (Al-Khazneh). Gaze in wonder at its magnificent Hellenistic façade, carved into the rock face, and hear tales of the countless films that have used the building as a filming location, such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Stop for lunch in town (own expense) and then proceed for sightseeing with admiring sights like Petra’s Nabataean theater, the Royal Tombs (the city’s impressive burial grounds) and Petra Church. Finish your tour with a drop off at your hotel, and then spend your night at leisure in the city. Overnight stay in Petra.

Day 6

Petra – Wadi Rum – Aqaba – Amman

Start your day with breakfast in your hotel, and then travel to Wadi Rum, where scenes from Lawrence of Arabia were filmed. Swap your mode of transport for a spacious 4x4 jeep, and explore Wadi Rum in a convoy, riding over red-sand dunes and around the granite mountains that punctuate the desert landscape. After two hours, proceed for Aqaba, Jordan’s sun-drenched southern city. Enjoy free time in the city to do whatever please you, perhaps lounging on the beach or visiting Ayla: Aqaba’s ancient church. Later start your journey north to Amman. After traveling for roughly 3.5 hours, check-in to your hotel, enjoy dinner and overnight stay at the hotel in Amman.
