Classic Jordan

Best time to go: September to November & March to May
Best for: Culture & Beach, Historical, First Time Visitor, Cultural & Immersive

This classic private tour explores the rich cultural heritage and stunning landscapes of Jordan. You’ll have your own private driver in a modern air-conditioned vehicle, and we will provide the finest private guides to bring this magical destination to life.

Begin in Amman, where we suggest two nights to give you a wonderful introduction to Jordan. You’ll first head north to the 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 to try your hand at Jordanian cuisine at Petra Kitchen. This gives you a 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 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.

    Customise Your Itinerary

    We can tweak and change any element of this itinerary and you can depart on any day you want, add nights here and there, and we can fully customise your day-to-day experiences depending on your interests. Here are just a few ideas of many that we can look at and discuss when we come to plan your tailor-made itinerary.

    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.

    Add some time at the Red Sea

    Aqaba is located just an hour or so south of Wadi Rum, so you could fit that in your itinerary between the desert and Dead Sea.

    Three nights in Amman?

    Three nights in Amman allows you to explore more deeply. You could explore the Desert Castles to the east of Amman, or include some of the more esoteric sites such as Umm Qais, Pella or Ajloun Castle.

    Extend your beach stay

    The Dead Sea is a wonderful place to spend some R&R. Some guest stay as long as a week soaking up the naturally UV filtered sun rays, or making use of the excellent spas.

    Combine with Egypt

    Egypt is a perfect bed-fellow to pair with this classic Jordan tour. We can arrange a wonderful twin-centre holiday.
