DAY 3, Sunday - Madaba, Mt. Nebo, Kerak

Today, drive towards Petra. En route, visit Mount Nebo, the reputed burial site of Moses, overlooking the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea. Afterwards, visit a mosaic school and workshop where you will have the opportunity to learn about this incredible craft. Continue to visit the mosaic city of Madaba, where an ancient map of the Holy Land is set into the floor of Saint George's Church. After lunch, travel to Kerak Castle. The striking silhouette of this fortified Crusader town and castle will instantly make you understand why kings and nations utilized the structure for centuries. Make a stop at the Moses Springs before you arrive in Petra for overnight. (Breakfast, Lunch)

DAY 4, Monday - Petra City Tour
An astonishing day exploring Petra! Enter the "rose red" city hand-sculpted from a mountain range by the Nabateans in the 3rd century BC. Begin your walk (or ride) through the "Siq", a winding canyon road. At the end, you'll gaze in total amazement at Petra's most extraordinary monument - the towering Treasury building rising over 140 feet. Beyond, discover soaring temples, elaborate royal tombs, a theater, burial champers and water channels - all remnants of a once great Nabatean culture. Today, Petra is both a Jordanian national treasure and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience! There will be time on your own to further explore Petra before returning to the hotel. (Breakfast)

DAY 5, Tuesday - Wadi Rum
Morning departure to Wadi Rum, a surreal desert terrain of ancient river beds, wind-sculpted mountains, vast desert vistas and pastel colored sands. This UNESCO World Heritage Site, often described as the "Valley of the Moon", served as inspiration (and site of the filming) for T.E. Lawrence's novel, Lawrence of Arabia. Ride in a 4x4 vehicle to explore the valley, with its looming rock faces that seem to grow directly out of the sand. Cross the huge red sand dunes, and the eroded pillars of sandstone rock known as "The Seven Pillars". Then, a fabulous lunch in an authentic Bedouin tent in the midst of the desert, where you'll be introduced to "Zarb"; a selection of foods cooked in an oven with hot coals beneath the desert floor. Afterward, head to Amman. This evening enjoy a farewell dinner at a local restaurant. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

DAY 6, Wednesday - Depart Jordan
Your vacation ends today after breakfast. (Breakfast)
