Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Amman. Upon arrival into Amman you'll be met by your private driver and taken to your hotel.

Day 3 Petra
Day 4 Petra
Today you will enjoy a full day tour of Petra. For the first two or three hours you'll have a private guide with you to show you the city's main highlights and tell you all about the ancient city's history and the lives of those who made it their home. You then have some time to explore further on your own. Bring your walking shoes and be prepared for an inspiring but energetic day.
Day 5 Petra
One day is never enough to fully take in the wonders of Petra, so you have an extra day to explore under your own steam. Admire the intricacy of the rock carvings, explore the Royal Tombs cut into the dusty pink rock face and see the mosaics at the site of the Byzantine church. You could also climb to the Monastery or the High Place of Sacrifice.
Day 6 The Dead Sea
After breakfast you'll be collected by your driver from the hotel for the transfer to the Dead Sea. The journey will take most of the day as you enjoy a private guided tour of the vast, red rock and sand landscape of Wadi Rum en route. You'll see the remains of a Nabatean temple, pass through the settlement of Rum and take a walk in a narrow canyon whose walls are etched with ancient Thamudic inscriptions.
Day 7 The Dead Sea
You have the day free to relax by the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. A visit wouldn't be complete without spending time floating almost weightless on the water, famous for its high salinity levels. You could also indulge in a massage or spa treatment at your hotel - the area is well known for its healing practices.
