Best for: Slow Travel, Culture & Beach, Cultural & Immersive, First Time Visitor
This journey to Jordan is perfect for those who like to enjoy their travel slowly. Slow Jordan is a privately-chauffered suggested tour that does precisely that, gently meandering around the cultural delights of this magical destination.
You spend three or four nights in many places rather than two, so you have more time to sit back and relax rather than jump from one experience to another. This will mean spending a morning exploring a cultural site such as Petra, followed by the afternoon beside the pool. You’ll have a private driver and luxury air-conditioned vehicle, and expert private guides when heading out on unique experiences.
You begin with three nights in Amman. We suggest two mornings of exploring, with two afternoons free. On the first day, take a 2-3 hour immersive walking tour of Amman. On the second day, you head north to Jerash to explore this wonderful Roman town.
Your second day in Petra takes you into the site with your private guide. The tour usually lasts for about three hours. They then leave you to explore the Monastery under your own steam and have lunch in one of the restaurants beside the Qasr-Al-Bint. The second day is then at leisure for you to explore independently or relax beside the pool. We can suggest a few interesting walks such as the Wadi Farasa Trail. We also suggest a few elements of ‘Hidden Petra‘.
The Dead Sea is the final port-of-call. Your R&R element can be as long as you want, and we suggest an ample four nights. Bask in the naturally-filtered UV rays on the lowest place on earth.
Any element of this ‘Slow Jordan’ can be tailor-made and we can add on nights, or take some away if you don’t quite have long enough in Jordan. We can also weave in other destinations in Jordan, or in the wider region.
