Itinerary idea in detail
Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
An early start this morning as it's around a five to six hours drive down the 5,000 years old King's Highway to Petra. En-route you will stop to see Mt. Nebo, with its spectacular views over the Dead Sea; the Christian mosaics of Madaba; and the crusader castle of Kerak. On arrival in Petra you will stay for two nights at your hotel.
Today you will enjoy a full day guided tour of Petra. Your private guide will be with you for around two to three hours, after which you have some time to explore further on your own. Although it is probably the highlight of your holiday, bring your walking shoes and be prepared for an inspiring but energetic day!
One day may not be enough, so you have extra time to explore Petra under your own steam. You will then be met by your driver for the 'fast road' up to Amman, where you spend the night. If you have the energy, do think about eating at Hashem's, for the best falafel in town!
