At a glance

Head out on a 10-day adventure through Jordan, experiencing the sights, sounds and flavours of this incredible country. Your exploration begins in Amman where you’ll have a few days to start to get to know Jordan. Spend time with a member of the speaker’s bureau and learn about modern Jordan as well as its history and people. You’ll also get to spend a full day exploring the ancient city of Jerash which is one of the best preserved cities of the Roman Empire. While in Amman you’ll have the opportunity to get a taste of the flavours that make this region so special as you join locals to create a delicious Arabic feast. As you leave Amman behind you’ll visit Madaba, a 4000 year old archaeological site. It will soon become clear why it’s known as the ‘City of Mosaics’. You will also stop at Mount Nebo, on which the Prophet Moses is said to have stood looking over into the Promised Land.

The next leg of your journey sees you spend a few days in Petra, exploring the spectacular ancient site. An expert archaeologist will accompany you for a spell here and reveal more of Petra’s fascinating history. You may opt to add an extra special, and highly memorable exclusive dining experience at Petra. And there will also be a visit to nearby Little Petra.

Next, you will travel out to Wadi Rum to experience some authentic Bedouin hospitality. Visit a local home and get stuck in, in the kitchen once more as you learn to cook some more tasty dishes and learn about your hosts’ way of life. And what better way to experience the desert than on an exhilarating Jeep ride across the sands.

Finally, you’ll bring your adventure to a relaxing close near the Dead Sea where rejuvenating treatments and beautiful landscapes await.

Expert briefing: Jordan today Expert briefing: Jordan today

Known for its historical monuments and fascinating culture - Jordan’s modern day story is equally as important, and no less fascinating.

Today you will meet with a member of the speaker's bureau who will explain the current state of affairs in Jordan, including the political system, the path to democracy, reformers versus conservatives, the history and evolution of the monarchy, and the impact of the various waves of refugees in Jordan. Your meeting will last around an hour and your speaker, who is either a prominent journalist, risk analyst or think tank expert, will spend the time imparting their deep knowledge on these subjects. This will be a chance to step away from the ruins of the past and probe deeply into the Jordan of today.

Jerash guided tour Jerash guided tour

Explore the ancient city of Jerash. A truly incredible site, extremely well preserved and with remains from Neolithic times, as well as Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Umayyad and others. Its history also tells the tale of a remarkably long chain of human occupation.

As one of the best preserved cities of the Roman Empire, visited by Emperor Hadrian 129 AD, it’s possible to walk within the tracks of chariot wheels that are still visible in the paving stones. During your tour today you will be able to walk beneath the imposing south gate and then make your way up the 'Street of Columns' – the Roman road running 600 metres north from the Oval Plaza. And, as you visit the theatres you can imagine the throngs of crowds enjoying dramas unfolding before them.

All of this unfolds within the warm embrace of a traditional grandmother's house, nestled in the heart of Jabal al Weibdeh, one of Amman's most ancient and cherished neighbourhoods.

Read a map like no other today when you visit the ‘City of Mosaics’ and St George's Church, famous for its ancient mosaic map of the Holy Land. The real name of this city is Madaba, which sits just south of Amman and is in fact a 4000 year old archaeological site. The quantity of the mosaics here is astounding, particularly the creation within the Church of the Apostles which depicts the sea and her creatures.

Mount Nebo Mount Nebo

Visit Mount Nebo today and gaze across to Jerusalem, just 60 kilometres away. The Prophet Moses is said to have stood on Mount Nebo and looking over into the Promised Land, understood that he would not be permitted to enter it.

This enriching experience will give you a new perspective on Petra and a glimpse into what it might look like in the future.
