Map
All This Included
Ancient sights and fascinating landscapes await you on this Jordan tour that begins in Amman, Jordan's capital, and ends at the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth. In between, you’ll visit many of Jordan's amazing sights.

Amman is one of the world's oldest continuously inhabited cities with a history spanning nine millennia. Here, guided sightseeing includes a visit to the Roman amphitheater and excursions to Umm Qais and Jerash, a well-preserved Greco-Roman city buried for centuries under desert sands. Also enjoy guided sightseeing in Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World®, where you’ll admire this amazing city carved directly into the sandstone rock. Here, Globus has arranged an unforgettable experience for you. You'll walk down the Siq, a narrow gorge with spectacular colors flanked on either side by high cliffs. At the end, you’ll stand in awe in front of the iconic and famed Treasury, carved out of the sheer sandstone cliff in the 1st century BC. Additionally, sip tea in a Bedouin tent. The Bedouin are semi-nomadic people still inhabiting this region, and this is a special experience offered by Globus.

Another unique experience offered by Globus is a 4-wheel drive to the desert of Wadi Rum, virtually untouched by humanity with its incredible landscape, monolithic rockscapes, and centuries-old paintings spread on the rocky outcrops. You'll also visit Kerak, and its 12th-century Crusader Castle; Wadi Mujib, the "Jordanian Grand Canyon;" Madaba, home to a 6th-century, tiled mosaic map of the Holy Land; Mount Nebo, the holy site where Moses first saw the Promised Land; Bethany Beyond the Jordan, where Christians believe Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist; and the Dead Sea.
