The tour starts by visiting the most famous attraction in Jordan – the Red Rose city of Petra.
Petra is located just outside the town of Wadi Mousa in southern Jordan. It is 260 kilometers from Amman via the Desert Highway and 280 kilometers via the King’s Highway.
Petra, which means “stone” in Greek, is perhaps the most spectacular ancient city remaining in the modern world, and certainly a must-see for visitors to Jordan and the Middle East.
After visiting Petra, you will be driven to Wadi Rum – a protected desert wilderness in southern Jordan. It features dramatic sandstone mountains like the many-domed Jebel Um Ishrin, and natural arches such as Burdah Rock Bridge. Climbers are especially attracted to Wadi Rum because of its sheer granite and sandstone cliffs, while hikers enjoy its vast empty spaces.

The tour starts at 08:00, your driver meets you in the lobby of your hotel.
After we pick you up from your hotel in Amman we will drive towards the rose red city of Petra, the biggest attraction of Jordan. Petra was first established around the 6th century B.C. by the Nabatean, a nomadic tribe who settled in the area and laid the foundations of a commercial empire that extended into Syria.
Upon arrival you will begin the trip on horse back to the canyon, the so called Siq, and then by foot to the most beautiful monument: the Treasury. Although it served as a royal tomb, the Treasury gets its name from the legend that pirates hid their treasure there, in a giant stone urn which stands in the center of the second level. Believing the urn to be filled with ancient treasures, the Bedouins periodically fired guns at it: proof of this can be seen in the bullet holes which are clearly visible on the urn.
Among other monuments you will see are the Street of Facades, the Royal Tombs and Pharaoh’s Castle.
Petra was also chosen to be one of the New 7 Wonders of the world.
You will have time for lunch in the local restaurant.
After visiting Petra we will drive towards the protected area of Wadi Rum, one of the most impressing desert landscapes in the World. The area was made famous in the west by Lawrence of Arabia who described it as “vast, echoing and god-like”.
