Itinerary

Day 1 UK - Amman

Today make your own way to the airport or be collected by our Private Chauffeur (if you've pre-booked) for your flight to Amman, Jordan's capital, and on arrival, we'll transfer you to your hotel.

Day 2 Amman

A good breakfast will set us up for a full day of discovery as we get to grips with the culture and traditions of Jordan. We'll begin with a walking tour of Amman, where we'll mingle with the locals as we step inside the King Abdullah Mosque and look around the busy vegetable market. We'll see the well-preserved Roman amphitheatre, which in its heyday could accommodate 6,000 spectators, and the Nymphaeum, a Roman public fountain.

Our tour is not finished yet, as we now head to Jerash – one of the largest and best-preserved Roman cities that still exists today. Your tour highlights are sure to be the Temples of Artemis and Zeus, Hadrian's Triumphal Arch and a street of columns that stretches for a mile.

We're going to head to a restaurant this evening for dinner.

Meals included: B,D

Day 3 Madaba - Petra

A day of exploration lies ahead as we journey south to Petra today. The route we follow, along the King's Highway, gives us the chance to visit some fascinating sites. First, we're going to Madaba, where St George's Church is home to the famous Mosaic Map. Dating back to the 6th century, it is the oldest map of Palestine in existence. After you've admired this revered work of art, you've got the chance to make your own as we include a visit to a mosaic school to learn this intricate craft. After you've created a unique souvenir of your holiday, we'll continue our journey to Mount Nebo. This elevated ridge rises 700 metres above sea level and, according to the Hebrew Bible, it's from here that Moses saw the Promised Land. We'll stand here today and take in panoramic views of the Holy Land and the valley of the River Jordan.

On arrival in Petra, we'll head to a restaurant for dinner and then check into our hotel, which is similar in design to a traditional Jordanian village. We'll be heading to the famous 'lost city' of Petra tomorrow, but if you'd like to start your discoveries right away, come with us on an optional trip tonight. Following a path lit by candles, we'll walk through the Siq to view the incredible Treasury building. This is also subtly illuminated by the glow of many candles spread out before it - a truly awe-inspiring sight.

Meals included: B,D

Day 4 Petra

We're going to spend today exploring Petra – a 'rose-red' city carved by the Nabateans out of vast cliffs, which we'll reach via a journey along the Siq. The excitement builds as we walk through this long, narrow gorge, which is an experience in itself as the colours and formations of the rocks that tower above us are incredible. After walking 1km, we are rewarded with the sight of the Treasury building, which is almost perfectly preserved and features ornate carvings on its facade.

One of many wonders here, we'll tour the site with a Local Guide, who will tell us about the Nabatean culture and show us highlights including intricately carved tombs and a Roman-style theatre. There's plenty of time to explore at your own pace before we return to the hotel.

This evening, we'll enjoy a dinner with a difference as we head to a restaurant, where with help from the chef, we'll try our hand at cooking local dishes. Then, we'll sit down together and eat what we have prepared.

Meals included: B,D

Day 5 Petra - Wadi Rum

This morning we'll depart on our journey to Wadi Rum, stopping en route at the ancient fortress of Shobak. This is one of the largest and most impregnable of the chain of forts built by the Crusaders and is an impressive example of military architecture. Every stronghold was built to be a day's journey from its neighbour, and at night, beacons were lit to signal to Jerusalem that each was safe. We'll then head to Wadi Rum, a vast desert whose rocky landscape has been carved by the forces of nature. With sand dunes and sandstone rock formations of all shapes, sizes and colours, this magical landscape is sure to leave a lasting impression. The Bedouin people who live in the deserts of Jordan consider receiving guests a great honour, and we'll experience their hospitality today as we visit a Bedouin village where, over herb tea and lunch, we'll get to know our hosts and learn about their semi-nomadic lifestyle and traditions.

Tonight, we are staying in the heart of Wadi Rum, where our hotel is in the guise of a Bedouin camp and you'll stay in your own Bedouin-style tent. Once you've settled in, enjoy an included dinner of traditional dishes and afterwards, maybe join an optional stargazing excursion. As you look up to the clear desert skies, an Expert Guide will tell you about the constellations you will see.

Meals included: B,L,D

Day 6 Wadi Rum - Dead Sea

After breakfast, we'll leave the desert behind and make our way to the Dead Sea, where our hotel sits on its shores. This is the lowest spot on earth, and its waters are renowned for their buoyancy and therapeutic qualities. Due to the high salt content as well as 21 other minerals, it's impossible to sink in the Dead Sea, so enjoy relaxing and floating in this natural spa.

Meals included: B,D

Day 7 Dead Sea - Amman

Spend the morning at leisure enjoying the facilities at your hotel, or dipping in and out of the relaxing waters of the Dead Sea.

Early this afternoon, we'll transfer back to Amman, where we'll get together for a farewell dinner.

Meals included: B,D

Day 8 Amman - UK

Today we'll transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival, either make your own way home or your Just You Private Chauffeur Service will be waiting for the journey home (if you've pre-booked).

Meals included: B
  1. Memorable Moment

    Get together to share food and stories at Petra kitchen whilst learning about the local dishes.

What our customers say

  1. Jordan exceeded all my expectations

    "Jordan exceeded all my expectations. Petra was awesome and the people we met were very kind and helpful. Dead Sea floating was a truly wonderful experience along with the mud scrub! Never been one for camping but the Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum was more like glamping so another amazing night. The local delicacies of lamb and chicken dishes were tasty along with all the salads. A holiday to remember for a long time- that is until the next one! Always feel safe as a solo traveller with Just You. Also usually meet like minded people who are interesting and friendly " - Christine Howarth

    "My first time on this sort of holiday. I certainly have no complaints. An interesting week which showed the different aspects of Jordan.

Petra at night

Petra at night

To visit Petra during daylight is an awe-inspiring experience; but to experience it at night by the light of 1,800 candles is truly an out-of-this-world experience! Walk through the Siq to the Khazneh following a candle-lit path and enjoy the haunting music of the Bedouin at the Treasury.

Evening excursion – difficult walking through the Siq at night (approx.1hrs there and 1hrs back) on rough unlit ground

Please note - This excursion will take place at night and the walk through the Siq (approx.1hrs there and 1hrs back) is illuminated by a dim light on uneven and uphill surfaces, therefore extreme caution and fitness is required. Torch is required.
