October 30 – November 2, 2023
A unique opportunity to extend your trip to Israel with a visit Jordan, including Petra, Wadi Rum, the Red Sea, and Amman.
After the Israel Farewell Dinner, we will return to Jerusalem for the night.
The following morning, we will cross the border into Jordan and drive to Petra for an overnight. Along the way we will visit
- The ancient city of Madaba, most famous for its 6th century byzantine mosaic of the Holy Land. It is the oldest preserved map of the holy land. We'll have lunch and some time for shopping.
- Mount Nebo. Enjoy a peaceful and spectacular view of the Jordan valley, the Dead Sea and the Judean hills from 2,300 ft above sea level. This is the spot where the Lord took Moses and let him view the promised land before his death.
We visit the famous ancient city of Petra in the Siq Canyon. Explore the ‘Silica Quarries’, the Jinn Blocks and Petra’s most renowned monument, The Treasury (Khazneh). You can ride an Arabian horse or walk yourself down the canyon road. Petra is a truly unforgettable experience!
After lunch we visit the village of Rum inside the stunning and unique Wadi Rum nature reserve (where the movie Martian was filmed). We board 4X4 jeeps and journey into the spectacular sandstone area of Wadi Rum for an off-road adventure into unique landscape and exploring rarely travelled ancient merchant routes. Stop at a bedouin tent for tea and shopping.
We then head to our Aqaba resort on the Red Sea for dinner and overnight.
Relax, snorkel and enjoy a well deserved rest on the Red Sea. After lunch we will make the journey to Amman, with a short city tour and a sumptuous Jordanian Farewell Dinner.
We will stay at a hotel near the airport and be up early for our flights home!
