Day 1: Jerusalem – Jerash, Amman, Petra (L, D)
Meet a driver in central Jerusalem, then cross the Jordan River Valley as you travel into northern Jordan, passing a 12-century Crusader castle along the way. The first stop is the ancient Roman city of Jerash, where you’ll find well-preserved streets, colonnades, mosaics, and theatres dating back thousands of years.
Next, head to Amman's bustling downtown to see Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic ruins set high above the city center. The day concludes at a Bedouin camp in Petra—or at a nearby 3-star hotel—with a Bedouin dinner served by a blazing fire.
Day 2: Petra – Jerusalem
Wake for a guided tour of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and ancient Nabatean city, entering through the winding siq, a narrow slot canyon. Following a packed lunch in Petra, begin the return trip to Israel, where this tour concludes at the original departure point.
