Summary

Spend two days in the evocative rock-cut city of Petra

Nothing can prepare you for Petra: the scale, the colours and the grandeur. Lively, cosmopolitan and rich, with goods from every corner of the known world, Ancient Petra was an extraordinary city. Its streets were swathed in a fusion of Nabataean, and Classical architecture — elaborate tombs, colonnaded streets and temples carved into rose-red rock.

Petra’s tombs and temples are only a fraction of Jordan’s story. We explore traces of biblical tribes, Roman legions, Christian crusaders, and Islamic caliphates in this promised land of archaeology and fascinating history.

Tour highlights:

  • Visit Jerash, the best-preserved (and Jordan’s largest) Roman town in the east, a site that is home to the Oval Plaza and the Corinthian columns of the Temple of Artemis
  • Spend two days in the evocative rock-cut city of Petra, an iconic and instantly recognisable site that needs no introduction
  • Admire the almost lunar-like desert scenery of Wadi Rum, which was immortalised on film in ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ and ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’, aboard a fleet of 4x4s
  • Discover the mighty crusader castle at Kerak, built in the 12th century and one of the largest in the Levant region
