DAY 2

Amman, Jerash, & Ajloun

Amman “Cultural capital of the Middle East” is also the capital of Jordan. You will start with a city tour of Amman, visiting the Citadel, the Roman theatre and much more before head towards the North Country for a historical tour. Jerash will be our first stop. The Greco-Roman city known as the ‘Pompeii of the East’. Built over 2,000 years ago, Jerash is widely regarded as the best-preserved city of the Decapolis, a confederation of 10 Roman cities dating from the 1st century! We’ll explore the site taking in the colonnaded street, amphitheater and more. Then we will go for a drive through the beautiful Dibeen Forest on our way to Ajloun Castle. The Ajloun Castle protected the communication routes between south Jordan and Syria, and was one of a chain of forts that lit beacons at night to pass signals from the Euphrates as far as Cairo. Today, Ajloun Castle is a splendid sight with a fascinating labyrinth of towers, chambers, galleries and staircases to explore, while its hilltop position offers stunning views of the Jordan Valley.

DAY 5

Petra & Wadi Rum

The ancient city of Petra is one of Jordan’s national treasures and by far its best known tourist attraction. Petra is the legacy of the Nabateans, an industrious Arab people who settled in southern Jordan more than 2,000 years ago. Admired then for its refined culture, massive architecture and ingenious complex of dams and water channels, Petra is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site Much of Petra’s appeal comes from its spectacular setting deep inside a narrow desert gorge. You can choose between two ways to discover the site*: 1. Traditional way through the Siq (Canyon) guided tour through the Siq to the Treasury. We will visit the Treasury, city center, the Royal tomb, and the theater, the High Place of Sacrifice and the Roman soldier tombs and many others. 2. Through Petra Back door. This is a bit more adventurous and begins with a 20mins drive to the areas called Little Petra. This served as the trading area for the main site of Petra. We will begin with a 2hrs hike through little Petra and beautiful surrounding mountains area, until you reach the monastery (pictured above). Then you will continue through the main site of Petra exiting from the main gate. In the evening, transfer to Wadi Rum for a traditional Bedouin dinner and overnight camping. Read more

Stephen W., United States

Discover Jordan was awesome in planning and helping my group execute our trip to Petra and Wadi Rum. They helped us get across the Israeli border, transported us seamlessly to each hotel (with wifi included in their van), and even provided us with water bottles for our hiking and exploring. They made the trip carefree and were super flexible when we made tweaks to our itinerary along the way. They were awesome!!! Read more

Evan, United States

I traveled to Jordan a few years ago, and traveling this year with Discover Jordan made a huge difference! My husband and I and a group of colleagues had an incredible stay at the Dead See, camped in style in Wadi Rum and a wonderful day spent at Petra. My husband and I stayed a few days later on our own and Discover Jordan helped us organize our transportation and accommodation. We felt as though everything was taken care of and we were truly able to enjoy our experience in Jordan stress free. I will never travel to Jordan again without using Discover Jordan and highly recommend others do so as well! Laura and her team made us feel safe, comfortable and welcome. We truly had the trip of a lifetime and plane to return with more family and friends. Read more

Andrew, United States

The Discover Jordan team did a great job! They know the inside and out of crossing borders, all the logistics of moving big and small groups smoothly, and mostly importantly pleasing the customer. Our trip was great. My family looks forward to traveling with DJ in the future!
