  1. Day 1 Welcome to Amman

    Tread in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia, crusading knights and Bedouin tribes, who once crossed the length and breadth of Jordan leaving their mark on its mystical desert landscapes. Our springboard to the spellbinding ancient trading history of Jordan is the white stone city of Amman, which you will have an opportunity to explore at your leisure after being transferred to your hotel from the airport. Meet your fellow travellers this evening for a cocktail reception followed by dinner.

  2. Day 2 Explore Ancient Jerash

    This morning, we embark on a city tour of Amman to see its Citadel, Archaeological Museum, Roman Amphitheatre and Folklore Museum. Our next stop is to Iraq al-Amir where we'll Make Travel Matter at the Iraq al-Amir Women's Association and learn first-hand how they make soap from olive oil and craft greeting cards and note books from recycled paper. Try your hand at making your own before enjoying a lunch prepared by the women. We continue to the ancient city of Jerash, a favourite city of the Roman emperor Hadrian and an important stop on the incense and spice trade route to the Mediterranean. Amble past its soaring Corinthian columns and view its almost intact city walls, before returning to the seven hills of Amman, where tonight we'll Connect With Locals over an exclusive Be My Guest experience with a local family featuring Jordanian favourites for dinner.

    meals Breakfast, Lunch, Be My Guest
  3. Day 3 Onwards to Petra

    The enchanting rose-red fa��ades of Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, beckon. Your journey continues on the fabled King's Highway to visit Mount Nebo, one of the most revered holy sites of Jordan and the place where Moses is buried. You'll see the Madaba Mosaic Map that covers the floor of the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George in Madaba and ascend to the Crusader Shobak Castle, perched on the side of a mountain. Arriving in Petra later, you'll join a Bedouin tribe for a traditional dinner in their camp, under the clear night sky.

    meals Breakfast, Regional Dinner

  4. Day 4 Discover Colourful Petra and Scenic Wadi Rum

    Imagine silk and spice caravans plying their wares as we Dive Into Culture and enter this mystical trading city through the narrow Siq, flanked by towering cliffs soaring 80 metres high. Emerging from the path, the stone façade of the Treasury with its ornate decoration looms ahead - the first of many wonders to be explored. Leaving this ancient wonder behind, you'll trek through the timeless landscapes of the Wadi Rum desert, once described by T.E. Lawrence as 'vast, echoing and god-like'. Check into your luxury accommodation in Bedouin tents and soak up the endless desert landscapes. Watch a breath-taking sunset lighting up the surrounding sandstone mountains in brilliant golden hues, then gaze up as the day turns to night and the star-studded sky takes centre stage for the rest of the evening.

    meals Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel Mazayen Rum Camp
  5. Day 5 Journey to Amman

    This morning, we embark on a jeep tour through the desert watching the landscape rise almost 2,000 metres from the desert floor, amidst which you'll find canyons, waterholes and rock paintings that span millennia. Return to Amman for your final night in Jordan, enjoying a Farewell Dinner with your travel companions. As the sun sets on this magical city, listen to the mystical call of the muezzin and reminisce over an enchanting trip into antiquity.

Amman

Desert Castles

Join us as we travel to the east and south of Amman to visit Jordan's desert castles, beautiful examples of early Islamic art and architecture. These preserved caravan stations were centers of agriculture and trade in the eighth century that helped distant rulers forge ties with local Bedouins. One of the best-preserved monuments, Quasir Amra, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with lively frescoes and colorful mosaics.
Adult Price: $122

Ajloun Castle Experience

Built in 1184 AD, Ajloun Castle played an important role in defending this area against the crusaders, who unsuccessfully spent decades trying to capture the castle and the nearby village. Afterward, we will travel to the quaint village of Rassoun for a simple, but generous, home-cooked meal with the family of Abu Baker, who has built a kitchen and Living room on the top of his house to entertain us.
Adult Price: $165

Excellent service and help at the airport. Knowledgeable and kind guide. Perfect timing, Jordan had just opened up to tourists. There was hardly anyone at the archeological sites. It was fabulous!
Response from Grand European Travel:
That is so fantastic to hear! We are so happy that you enjoyed Jordan and the sites with no issues or hassles. Thank you for sharing your experience.
