Day 2: Amman - Petra (B, D)
After breakfast and a hotel pickup by your car and driver, travel south through the rugged desert landscapes to Petra, the ancient rock city in Jordan’s Shara Mountains — your time on the road is roughly 3 hours.
After lunch (own expense), enjoy 2-hour walking tour of this awe-inspiring Nabataean city and UNESCO World Heritage site with a local guide. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, Petra was carved into a sandstone gorge more than 2,000 years ago to dominate the trading routes of ancient Arabia and is rightly regarded as the jewel in the crown of Jordan’s historic sights.
Walk along the narrow Siq, the high-walled fissure in the rocks that winds into the heart of the city. Then, stop in your tracks at your first breathtaking glimpse of the Treasury, known locally as El-Khazneh —Petra’s stellar sight. Wonder at its intricate façade and hear how movies such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade were filmed here.
Take photos of this glorious monument and then continue your tour. See Petra’s ornate tombs cut into the rock face and admire the stunning theater that once sat 3,000 spectators. As you walk, hear stories and facts about the ingenious Nabataeans who chose, carved out and then made this place their home so long ago. After your walking tour finishes, check in and enjoy dinner at your hotel.
Overnight: tourist-class Amra Palace, prime-class Kings Way or superior-class Beit Zaman in Petra
Day 3: Petra - Wadi Rum - Dead Sea - Amman (B, D)
Start your day with breakfast at your hotel and then travel to the spectacular desert wilderness of Wadi Rum. Sometimes known as the ‘Valley of the Moon’ for its lunar-like landscapes, this protected region of mountains, dunes and canyons was where TE Lawrence, known as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ fought alongside the Bedouin locals in World War I.
The locals have named many of the sites in Wadi Rum after Lawrence and numerous scenes from the iconic movie, Lawrence of Arabia, were filmed on location here. Enjoy an exhilarating 2-hour trip by 4x4 through this majestic place to immerse yourself in its serene beauty and ever-changing colors. Rumble along desert valleys, through narrow gorges and past red dunes and mountains and stop to take photos along the way.
After a break for lunch (own expense), travel onward to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. Sitting at 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level, this glittering inland sea contains extraordinarily high levels of salt and minerals, and offers up an incredible experience: the chance to float rather than swim!
Arrive at the Dead Sea Beach Rest House and wade in to experience a short floating session from the beach: it’s an unforgettable sensation. Finish your day by relaxing on the 1-hour journey back to Amman. Check back into your hotel for dinner.
Overnight: tourist-class Larsa Hotel, prime-class Amman West or superior-class Regency Hotel in central Amman
Day 4: Amman (B)
Your 3-night Jordan tour finishes after your hotel breakfast. Check out of your hotel and relax on a convenient airport drop-off at Amman Queen Alia International Airport at a time to fit your flight departure.

Fantastic tour! I paired this with the Jerash half-day and an extra hotel night in Amman. My driver Shadi was fantastic; he knew all the great places to stop for photos and gave great advice and history of the country. The tourist class hotels were perfectly acceptable.
