Few countries are as richly blessed as the small desert kingdom of Jordan, with its magnificent archaeological remains and breathtaking desert and mountain scenery. This fascinating tour begins in Amman with its blend of ancient and modern, then visits the finely preserved Roman city of Jerash.
We then follow the ancient Kings Highway south to the great Crusader Castle at Kerak before reaching Petra. Here we visit one of the most spectacular sites in the Middle East – the rock-hewn ‘rose red’ city of Petra. We continue to Madaba with its Byzantine churches and exquisite mosaics, Mount Nebo from where Moses surveyed the Promised Land, and drive through the awe-inspiring landscape surrounding Wadi Rum, before ending our journey with few days relaxing at the Dead Sea.
