THE BASICS

Jordan is a fascinating country full of some of the most amazing historical sites of the Middle East, so in addition to diving or relaxing in the Red Sea Resort of Aqaba you may want us to take in some of these wonderful cultural experiences. The capital city of Amman is rich in historical and archaeological offerings as well as boasting an array of quality hotels and shops. It is worthwhile taking a trip from Amman to the nearby Roman city of Jerash. This is one of the best preserved examples of a Roman provincial city. It is particularly pretty in spring when the wild flowers are in bloom. As one heads south it is like a biblical journey. Madaba holds the oldest preserved ancient mosaic map of the Holy Lands. Mt Nebo is traditionally believed to be the burial place of Moses.

Further south along the therapeutic Dead Sea is the Sanctuary of Lot where Lot and his daughters escaped when fleeing the destruction of Sodom. Jordan is a castle lover’s paradise. Along the ancient King’s Highway lie Karak and Shawbak, two of the greatest Crusader castles. A trip to Jordan would not be complete without a visit to 2,000 year old Red Rose City of Petra. Carved into Rose coloured mountains this once lost Nabatean city is reached through the narrow Siq. You will be stunned by its beauty and grandeur. 70 kilometres north east of Aqaba lies Wadi Rum. A vast silent place, timeless and starkly beautiful. A night spent under the stars surrounded by rugged mountains and desert is an unforgettable experience.

The southernmost Resort of Aqaba is Jordan’s only outlet to the sea. It’s sandy beaches look out over the spectacular purple coloured mountains and sparkling azure waters of the Red Sea. Enjoy a full range of water sports including diving, snorkelling, sailing and water-skiing. There is also an aquarium, museum and newly excavated archaeological sites.

Petra and Wadi Rum Tour from Eilat

Destination: Eilat, Petra and Wadi Rum
  Petra and Wadi Rum Tour from Eilat is a 4 Night trip with Direct flights from Luton Airport to Eilat (Ovda) from Wednesday to Sunday. We can offer this magical trip on 21 November from £684.00 per person, including flights, first and last night in 3* Hotel in Eilat and 3 Day Petra and Wadi Rum Tour. Other dates are available from end of October 2018 till the end of March 2019. 3 day Petra and Wadi Rum Tour from Eilat allows an in-depth visit of the two most iconic wonders in Jordan. After pick up from your hotel in Eilat, you will cross the border into Jordan, and make your way to Petra along the desert highway. You will spend the first day of your tour with a guide, discovering the secrets of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Nabatean city of Petra. Inhabited since prehistoric times, this Nabataean carved-city, situated between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, was an important crossroads between Arabia, Egypt and Syria-Phoenicia. Petra is half-built, half-carved into the rock, and is surrounded by mountains riddled with passages and gorges. It is one of the world’s most famous archaeological sites, where ancient Eastern traditions blend with Hellenistic architecture. Overnight in hotel in Petra including breakfast. The following day is dedicated to an independent exploration of the site: you can return to your favourite place, or hike along one of the trails, such as that to the impressive Monastery. In the evening, enjoy an authentic Jordanian dinner at a Bedouin Campsite in Wadi Rum, out in the open beneath thousands of stars. After an experiential night in the desert, sleeping in tents, wake up to enjoy a Jeep tour in the Wadi Rum Nature Reserve, guided by local Bedouins. Wadi Rum is like a moonscape of ancient valleys and towering weathered sandstone mountains rising out of the white and pink coloured sands, and offers some of the most spectacular desert scenery you are ever likely to see. Home to the many exploits of the famous T.E. Lawrence during the 1917-1918 Arab Revolt, Wadi Rum was used for the desert shots of the film “Lawrence of Arabia”. After experiencing Wadi Rum, head to the port city of Aqaba for a walk through its traditional Arab markets before crossing back to Israel and ending your tour in Eilat. There is no need to pre-arrange a visa for this tour, as our team will take care of these arrangements as part of the service.
