What You Can Expect

3-Night Jordan Private Tour: Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea

Explore Petra on this 3-night tour of Jordan

Traveling with a friendly, professional driver, your 3-night tour takes you into Jordan’s interior to experience some of the natural and archaeological gems hidden in its beautiful desert landscapes.

After an overnight stay in Amman on Day 1, enjoy a guided walking tour of the age-old, UNESCO-listed rock city of Petra on Day 2. On Day 3, after an overnight stay in Petra, take in the stunning desert scenery of Wadi Rum on a 4x4 and then continue to the Dead Sea. Enjoy time here to float in the incredible, salt-rich waters before you wend your way back to Amman and spend a last night at your hotel in the city.

A choice of hotel accommodation is available on your tour: choose from Jordan’s tourist-class, prime-class or superior-class hotels depending on your budget. Breakfast and dinner are included at each hotel and there’s ample time to enjoy lunch at your own expense on each day.

Please see the itinerary below for details on each day of the tour.

Itinerary

Day 1: Amman Queen Alia International Airport - Amman (D)
Start your Jordan experience with an airport transfer to your hotel in Amman. Check in, and then enjoy dinner in your hotel.

Overnight: tourist-class Larsa Hotel, prime-class Amman West Hotel or superior-class Regency Hotel in central Amman

Day 2: Amman - Petra (B, D)
After breakfast and a hotel pickup by your car and driver, travel south through the rugged desert landscapes to Petra, the ancient rock city in Jordan’s Shara Mountains — your time on the road is roughly 3 hours.

After lunch (own expense), enjoy 2-hour walking tour of this awe-inspiring Nabataean city and UNESCO World Heritage site with a local guide. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, Petra was carved into a sandstone gorge more than 2,000 years ago to dominate the trading routes of ancient Arabia and is rightly regarded as the jewel in the crown of Jordan’s historic sights.

Walk along the narrow Siq, the high-walled fissure in the rocks that winds into the heart of the city. Then, stop in your tracks at your first breathtaking glimpse of the Treasury, known locally as El-Khazneh —Petra’s stellar sight. Wonder at its intricate façade and hear how movies such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade were filmed here.

Take photos of this glorious monument and then continue your tour. See Petra’s ornate tombs cut into the rock face and admire the stunning theater that once sat 3,000 spectators. As you walk, hear stories and facts about the ingenious Nabataeans who chose, carved out and then made this place their home so long ago. After your walking tour finishes, check in and enjoy dinner at your hotel.

Overnight: tourist-class Amra Palace, prime-class Kings Way or superior-class Beit Zaman in Petra

Day 3: Petra - Wadi Rum - Dead Sea - Amman (B, D)
Start your day with breakfast at your hotel and then travel to the spectacular desert wilderness of Wadi Rum. Sometimes known as the ‘Valley of the Moon’ for its lunar-like landscapes, this protected region of mountains, dunes and canyons was where TE Lawrence, known as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ fought alongside the Bedouin locals in World War I.

The locals have named many of the sites in Wadi Rum after Lawrence and numerous scenes from the iconic movie, Lawrence of Arabia, were filmed on location here. Enjoy an exhilarating 2-hour trip by 4x4 through this majestic place to immerse yourself in its serene beauty and ever-changing colors. Rumble along desert valleys, through narrow gorges and past red dunes and mountains and stop to take photos along the way.

After a break for lunch (own expense), travel onward to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. Sitting at 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level, this glittering inland sea contains extraordinarily high levels of salt and minerals, and offers up an incredible experience: the chance to float rather than swim!

Arrive at the Dead Sea Beach Rest House and wade in to experience a short floating session from the beach: it’s an unforgettable sensation. Finish your day by relaxing on the 1-hour journey back to Amman. Check back into your hotel for dinner.

Overnight: tourist-class Larsa Hotel, prime-class Amman West or superior-class Regency Hotel in central Amman


Day 4: Amman (B)
Your 3-night Jordan tour finishes after your hotel breakfast. Check out of your hotel and relax on a convenient airport drop-off at Amman Queen Alia International Airport at a time to fit your flight departure.

I enjoyed the Petra "Passage" for 40 minutes walking.
That is so tall and beautiful water passage,
At the end of the passage,
I found The Treasures in breathing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

This tour was great. We did not have long enough in Jordan, but this tour allowed us to see so much! Shadi, our guide could not have been better or more helpful. We chose the 5 star option and the hotels were fine, but we would probably have been happy to pay a little more if there had been a greater choice, but overall a very good and highly enjoyble tour which was excellent value and I would definitely recommend.
