Welcome to Amman. Our representative will meet you at the arrivals gate, will help you through airport formalities, later our driver will meet you and transfer you to your hotel for overnight.

Day 2: Amman / Amman City Tour / Jerash / Ajloun / Amman
After breakfast, our driver will be waiting to pick you up to visit the capital of Jordan, Amman. WE will start of by visiting the Citadel of Amman which is the highest hill in Amman and is the site of ancient Rabbath-Ammon. Occupied since the Bronze Age, it's surrounded by a 1700m-long wall, which was rebuilt many times during the Bronze and Iron Ages, as well as the Roman, Byzantine and Umayyad periods. There's plenty to see, but the Citadel's most striking sights are the Temple of Hercules and the Ummayad Palace. We then descend to visit the roman theater which is the most obvious and impressive remnant of Roman Philadelphia, and is the highlight of Amman for most visitors. Then we are heading north to the beautiful and greener part of Jordan to visit Jerash, approximately one hour from Amman. Jerash is a close second to Petra on the list of favorite destinations in Jordan and one of the best places to explore roman civilization outside of Italy. Inhabited since the Bronze Age, Jerash is known for the ruins of the walled Greco-Roman settlement of Gerasa, just outside the modern city. These include the 2nd-century Hadrian's Arch, the Corinthian columns of the Temple of Artemis and the huge Forum's oval colonnade. Later we go on a 30 minutes' drive to visit Ajloun, a town that is known for its beautiful green mountains and the Ajloun castle, standing 1250 meters above sea level, the castle was constructed between 1184 and 1188 by the nephew of the Muslim military leader Saladin. Saladin fought against the Christian military during the Crusades in the 12th Century. The strategic location of the castle enabled Saladin's army to look out across the Jordan Valley for invaders. The castle is set on top of Mount 'Auf and provides visitors with astonishing views of the Jordan Valley and surrounding desert. We later drive back to Amman, for a free evening, and overnight.

Day 3: Amman / Madaba / Mount Nebo / Shoubak / Petra
After breakfast, we take a 40 minutes' drive south of Amman to visit Mount Nebo and the memorial of Prophet Moses and where he saw the Promised Land, later we visit the town of Madaba and the St George Church which contains the oldest surviving original cartographic depiction of the Holy Land and especially Jerusalem on mosaic. Then we take a longer drive (around 2 hours) to reach the town of Shoubak, there, on the "royal mountain" Montreal or Mons Regalis as it used to be called, was the first Crusader fortress in a line of strongholds in Oultrejourdain, the territory east of the river Jordan. Baldwin I King of Jerusalem ordered its construction in 1115 AD, to control the caravan routes between Syria and Egypt. Later we proceed for a one hour drive to Petra for dinner, relaxation and overnight.


Day 4: Petra / Petra Visit / Wadi Rum
After breakfast, we are heading to Jordan's crown jewel and travelers ultimate destination, the ancient lost city of Petra! The Nabateans carved this city in stone with simple tools 1500 years ago, and nothing will prepare you for the beauty and the sheer size of Al Khaznah! Mark my words when it starts peeking at you by the end of the Siq (the pathway to Petra)! After our visit, we proceed for a 90 minutes' drive to Wadi Rum! The valley of the moon, we arrive to the camp (and we bet you're hungry by then) for a Bedouin specialty dinner: ZARB. What's that you may ask? Well, it's a mix of meat like lamb and chicken, rice, potatoes and carrots, placed in a hole in the ground, which is filled with flaming coals. The hole is then covered, and after a few hours, the meat and rice are all smoked, steamed, and grilled, all at the same time! After dinner, you can enjoy a brief folkloric show (Bedouin music and typical Bedouin dance) then finish the night stargazing the beautiful unpolluted desert clear skies.
