    Itinerary

    Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

    Day 1 - Join tour Amman

    Join the tour today in Amman, the capital of Jordan. It is a fascinating city of contrasts - a unique blend of old and new. The Temple of Hercules is in the commercial heart of the city along with ultra-modern buildings, hotels, smart restaurants, art galleries and boutiques that rub shoulders comfortably with traditional coffee shops and tiny artisans' workshops. The people of Amman are multicultural, multi-denominational, well-educated and extremely hospitable. They welcome visitors and take pride in showing them around their fascinating and vibrant city.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 2 - Visit Jerash and Mosaic Workshop Visit

    This morning we drive northwards to ancient Jerash, located in the Gilead Hills. One of Jordan's major attractions, it is a beautifully maintained Roman city, considered to be the best preserved of the Decapolis, a confederation of ten Middle Eastern cities under the Emperor Pompey. One of the highlights of the Middle East, a triple arch gateway, gives way to colonnaded streets, theatres, temples and baths. It is estimated that this represents only about 10% of the entire city, the rest is still to be uncovered. We spend several hours exploring the site. We then travel onto the town of Madaba which was once a one of the most important Christian communities east of the Jordan River. Today it harbours a collection of extraordinary mosaics, including the incredible 6th century Great Map of of the holy land mainly Jerusalem. Discovered in 1896, it contains detailed depictions of the important pilgrimage sites throughout the Holy Land, including Jerusalem, and is believed to be the oldest surviving map of Palestine in existence. We watch and learn the procedures of mosaic production from the specialists before returning to Amman. If time permits, you will be able to wander around the streets of the capital and discover it's unique blend of old and new. The Temple of Hercules is in the commercial heart of the city along with ultra-modern buildings, hotels, smart restaurants, art galleries and boutiques that all rub shoulders comfortably with traditional coffee shops and tiny artisans' workshops.

    The downtown area is much older and more traditional with smaller businesses producing and selling everything from fabulous jewellery to everyday household items. The people of Amman are multicultural, multi-denominational, well-educated and extremely hospitable.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 3 - Morning ‘swim’ in the Dead Sea, drive via Kerak to Petra

    This morning we drive to the shimmering Dead Sea. At nearly 400m below sea level, it is the lowest point on earth. Surrounded by barren hills, this unique body of water has an amazingly high salt content (33%) which means no animal life survives and that it is almost impossible to sink! But don't take our word for it, try for yourself. There is also access to a hotel pool, beach, showers and the hotel restaurants and bars.

    We then head south following one of the oldest trade routes in the world, the King's Highway, which once carried the richly laden caravans of Solomon. We reach Kerak, imposingly positioned on a hilltop, which became famous in the time of the Crusades as one of a chain of fortresses in the Holy War against Islam. Built in 1132 by Baldwin of Jerusalem, a Crusader king, the castle finally fell to the forces of Saladin himself and who was so impressed with the courage shown by its defenders that he set them free, we spend time touring the castle at Kerak, with stories of what life was like for the early crusaders. From Kerak we continue south to Petra, without doubt one of the most famous and awe inspiring sites in the Middle East.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 4 - Walking tour of Petra and Bedouin style dinner in Little Petra

    Abandoned centuries ago, Petra was the rock cut stronghold of the Nabateans (and the final resting place of the Holy Grail - according to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). Surrounded by imposing mountains and approached through a deep, narrow cleft in the rocks known as the Siq, it is a unique and unforgettable place. Enhanced by the play of light and shadow, the sights are an altogether overwhelming experience. In the morning we walk through the Siq and enter this lost city, sighting the famous temple façade of the Treasury as we approach. A guided walking tour will take us to some of the key parts of this remarkable site after which the rest of the day is free to walk through one of the most impressive and exciting attractions of ancient history at leisure.

    We return to Petra this evening to experience one of the highlights of the holiday, a private dinner in nearby Little Petra with a traditional Bedouin style setting inside or outside a cave (depending upon weather conditions). Imagine living among the ancient Nabatean people, with a traditional barbecue dinner including local mezze, seasonal fruit and desserts as we sit around a camp fire on Bedouin carpets with a blanket of stars overhead.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast & Dinner

    Day 5 - Free in Petra, dinner with a local family

    Today you have a free at Petra. Returning to the city you can climb steep paths to the sacrificial 'High Places' (altars) and hike to the top of Jebel Harin (1396m) for a stunning view over Wadi Araba and the Negev Desert. The Monastery is the largest of Petra's monuments and certainly worth the steep climb up to it. Towering to a height of 40m, its doorway alone measures 8m in height, dwarfing anyone framed within it. It is a place to lose oneself in the atmosphere of the past.

    We visit a local family in Wadi Musa which is close to Petra for dinner and to learn about the local way of life and traditions. Your tour leader will explain how the meal is prepared as well as how local Bedouin tea and other traditional dishes are made. Dinner is likely to be a national dish of the country, such as Makloobah, which is lamb cooked in a sauce of fermented dried yogurt and served with rice.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast & Dinner

    Day 6 - Four wheel drive to Wadi Rum and Bedouin experience

    We spend today experiencing the beautiful area of Wadi Rum. We head off south for an exciting half-day four-wheel drive through stunning desert scenery. Travelling via the old Roman road, we explore the lesser-known northern areas of Wadi Rum, seeing natural rock bridges and viewing incredible rock sculptures on the way to our overnight camp. After lunch we rendezvous for an unforgettable trek, either on foot or you have the option of taking a camel. We ride and/or walk for about 2 hours through a landscape of sandstone mountains, white and pink coloured sands and a desert that is dripping in the 'Lawrence of Arabia' legend with scenes of the famous film being shot here. The desert has been inhabited by the nomadic Bedouin people for generations and we discover how the Bedouins of Wadi Rum live with explanations from our guide and the opportunity to visit a local Bedouin family and share a cup of tea with them. We learn about the Bedouin habits and way of life, their culture and the stories that have been passed down from previous generations. They believe that Wadi Rum is beautiful due to its magical landscape, and so we include time in this area with few other visitors which help us discover the silence and majesty of the desert. The Bedouin culture is also famous for story-telling and we get the chance to listen to stories about the past days and generations of those who used to live in the vast desert of Wadi Rum.

    Before our night under the starry sky, we may be lucky enough to witness a spectacular desert sunset. We sleep in a single, large, traditional goat hair tent (the best protection against typical desert extremes of hot and cold) which is laid out with rugs, mattresses, pillows and sleeping bags. The evening is normally spent around a campfire, with spectacular desert stars overhead: Washing facilities and WC are available close by.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Tented Camp

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 7 - Travel to Aqaba with afternoon free to spend on the beach

    Leaving Wadi Rum, we drive to Aqaba on the Red Sea. Aqaba is Jordan's only seaport and has had a long history of occupation and trade. King Solomon's ships left here loaded with copper whilst the Edomites and the Nabateans used the port as part of a trade route from Damascus to Egypt. The Roman 10th Legion was stationed here and during the 12th century the Crusaders made good use of Aqaba's strategic position. During World War I, the Arab troops under Prince Faisal used the fort as a base for attacks on the Ottoman forces. After checking into our hotel, the rest of the day is free for you to relax.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 8 - Free day in Aqaba with optional sailing and snorkelling, return to Amman

    Today you have a free day where you may wish to enjoy the splendid coral reefs and clear warm waters for which Aqaba is famed. Aqaba has numerous watersports activities including sailing, snorkelling and glass bottom boats for hire, so there should be something for everyone.

    A selection of optional activities are listed below to help you budget for your Family adventure. Whilst the basic tour price you pay before you travel includes a great selection of highlights, we have also built in free time to allow you the flexibility to choose from a carefully selected range of additional excursions and activities or take time to relax, the choice is yours. At certain destinations along the way there may be several options to choose from and it may not be possible to fit all the activities in; your Explore Leader will be able to give advice on which are the most suitable for your family.

    Clothing

    Lightweight clothing is essential in midsummer, with a sun-hat and neck protection, though a sweater and light jacket are advisable for Wadi Rum. Early mornings can be very cold when camping in the desert. Winters in Jordan can be cold and it may snow, so please bring suitable warm clothing. We recommend a waterproof jacket in winter. Women are advised not to wear shorts or dresses that are too revealing as this can attract unwelcome attention in the streets of Moslem towns - loose fitting trousers or slacks are ideal.

    Women and older girls should also cover their head and shoulders when entering a mosque and men should wear long trousers.

    Footwear

    Comfortable walking shoes or boots, trainers and sandals.

    Luggage

    20kg

    Luggage: On tour

    One main piece of baggage and daypack. Remember you are expected to carry your own luggage so don't overload yourself.

    Equipment

    Sleeping bags, blankets and mattresses are provided, but we suggest you bring your own sleeping sheet. A personal water bottle, a towel and small torch are useful for the nights in Wadi Rum. You may also wish to bring your own snorkelling equipment. Antibacterial hand wash, such as Travelproof's \ H20-No\ water-less hand scrub (available through Explore Trader catalogue); try to avoid anti-bacterial wipes as these can pose a disposal problem

    Tipping

    Explore leader
    Tour Leader: At your discretion you might also consider tipping your Tour Leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive.
    Local crew
    In this region, tipping is a recognised part of life across the service industry. Local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided.

    To assist with this your Explore Leader may organise a group tips kitty for included activities and meals, they will then account for kitty use throughout the tour.

    For this we suggest JD20 (Jordanian Dinar) per family member.

    For all non-included services and meals on your trip please tip independently at your discretion.
    International Departure Taxes
    The Jordanian government levies on all travellers a departure tax of JD8.00 per person. For travellers departing by air this is usually included in the taxes on the airline ticket and thus nothing will be collected from you at the point of departure. For those travellers departing by land, this will be collected by the immigration authorities at the port of departure from Jordan.

    Recommended Currency For Exchange
    Sterling and US$ are widely accepted though exchange rates tend to favour the US$. It is worth taking some money in cash. You may be able to order Dinars from your bank although the rate will usually be lower than purchasing currency in country.
    Where To Exchange
    Banks or 'Forex' offices in main towns/cities.
    ATM Availability
    ATMs are widely available, but do not always work.
    Credit Card Acceptance
    In hotels and some larger shops/restaurants.
    Travellers Cheques
    Travellers Cheques, although still the safest way of carrying money, are difficult to cash in Jordan. There are high commission charges on Travellers Cheques on a per cheque basis so if using them we suggest you take high denomination cheques. Proof of purchase may be necessary for encashment of Travellers Cheques.

    Accommodation notes


    Jordan's tourism infrastructure is well developed and standards are generally good, however due to the recent considerable rise in tourism in Jordan, hotels are experiencing very high demand for rooms', particularly in and around Petra. This high demand can lead to lower levels of service and quality, as well as occurrences of overbookings, which are often notified to us at a late stage. For this reason, we would like to emphasise that hotel accommodation in Petra, including the standard of, is subject to change. However, we are confident that these issues are vastly outweighed by our close proximity to historical Petra perfect for exploring.

    Our accommodation throughout this tour is in in modern mid-range hotels with ensuite facilities, air conditioning, hair dryer, mini bar, direct dial telephone, TV and have use of a swimming pool and free Wi-Fi. We stay in the heart of Amman, on the edge of the old city centre and within walking distance of the downtown area before moving on to our accommodation in Petra. Enjoying a good location, the hotel is close to the entrance of the site itself which allows for lots of opportunities to explore. A highlight of our trip is our desert camp in Wadi Rum, set within a stunning location in a little visited part of the desert. The campsite we use presents the opportunity to experience traditional Bedouin living arrangements in a large communal style goat hair tent, which provides the best protection against typical desert extremes of hot and cold weather. The tent is laid out with rugs, mattresses, pillows and sleeping bags and is where each tribe would commune to eat, sleep and socialise. There is even a proper toilet and washing facilities! In Aqaba we stay in a bright, modern hotel with a rooftop restaurant and pool all close to the beach.

    Please note that some hotel swimming pools in Jordan may operate separate timetables for men and women.

    Family swimming

    All the hotels have a swimming pool and there is a chance to swim in the Red Sea at Aqaba and float in the Dead Sea. The swimming pool at the Toledo hotel in Amman is open to the public and operates segregated swimming based on gender, a timetable is available at the hotel reception.
