Highlights

Discover the rich history of Jordan and its Bedouin traditions

Walk among the fascinating sandstone architecture that comprises the 3000-year-old city of Petra.

Traverse the Judean desert to visit Jerash, a well-preserved ancient Roman town with fantastic ruins that will make you feel like a gladiator.

Sample the local fare like the sweet knafeh, a pastry soaked in syrup and topped with cheese and nuts.

Experience the magical Bedouin lifestyle of sleeping in carpeted tents and gathering around the fire under the stars listening to their traditional tunes.

The Petra and Wadi Rum Sightseeing Tour is short, but each day is jam-packed with cultural activities. Starting in Jerusalem, you will be transferred across the Jordanian border and into vast desert landscapes. Stop at a couple of wonderful sites on the way to the Bedouin campsite near Petra, including Jerash and Amman (the capital of Jordan). You’ll spend each night under the stars in the traditional carpeted tents of the Bedouins—this is one of the highlights of the tour.

If you want a snapshot of Jordan’s highlights, this tour gives it to you. From morning until night on Day 2, you will explore the ancient Lost City of Petra, a historical hub that dates back over 3000 years. Wander its wonderful sandstone buildings in awe. On the third day, you’ll get an adrenaline-pumping ride in a 4x4 Jeep across the dunes of Wadi Rum, also known as the Valley of the Moon. All your meals and transportation are included on the tour, allowing you to sit back and enjoy. Fill your days well on the Petra and Wadi Rum Tour in Jordan.
