Add a night in Petra
There is so much more to see and do in Petra. A second day in the site could include the superb Wadi Farasa walk which takes in the High Place of Sacrifice. There are other superb options in our Hidden Petra tour.
This classic private tour explores the rich cultural heritage and undeniably stunning landscapes of Jordan. What’s more, you’ll have your own private driver in a modern air-conditioned vehicle. We will also provide the finest private guides to bring this magical destination to life.
Begin in Amman, where we suggest two nights giving you wonderful introduction to Jordan. You’ll firstly head north to the particularly well-preserved Roman city of Jerash, before taking an immersive walking tour of Amman with your guide. You will then be driven down the historic King’s Highway stopping at the biblical sites of Madaba and Mount Nebo before seeing the superb Crusader Castle at Kerak. You continue onto Petra for two nights. On your first night, you might want also like to try your hand at Jordanian cuisine at Petra Kitchen. This gives you a further day to explore the rose-red city with a guide the following day, with the option of seeing Petra by Night that evening.
It’s now time to delve into the desert – Lawrence of Arabia style – in Wadi Rum. You’ll head down in the afternoon to take a two-hour immersive jeep safari with a local bedouin before arriving at one of our superb desert camps. We can also arrange for you to head out on a short camel safari at sunset. Sit back and admire the view as the red desert changes colour and retreats into night. Feast on a bedouin barbecue as the night sky reveals countless stars above you. The following day, you might like to see the desert from above on a superb balloon flight.
You then conclude your time in Jordan with two nights of R&R beside the Dead Sea. For those more active, you can take a walk into the Wadi Mujib siq, but we rather like looking at the sunset as it sets over the West Bank, glass in hand.
We arrange totally bespoke trips and design an itinerary that is designed around you. You may have seen a suggested itinerary that we can base your plans around, or we can start with a blank sheet and paper and design something from scratch. You can leave a phone number and suggest a time to call you back, and we can also arrange to do this during the evenings or at weekends if you are busy during the daytime. We can also meet up with you in you fancy a coffee and are based in and around London.
