Map
All This Included
Your off-season guided tour of Jordan begins in the capital city of Amman and concludes at the Dead Sea—one of the lowest spots on Earth. Marvel at Jordan’s many amazing sites, but without the crowds or prices of the busy season! Visit Amman—one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities with a history spanning nine millennia—to see the Roman amphitheater and Jerash, a well-preserved Greco-Roman city buried for centuries under desert sands. Enjoy a guided sightseeing of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Petra—one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Walk down the Siq, a narrow gorge with spectacular colors between its high cliffs, and stand in awe of the famed Treasury site, carved out of the sheer sandstone cliff in the 1st century BC. Sip tea in a real Bedouin tent—a tradition of the semi-nomadic Bedouin people still inhabiting this region.

Take an adventure on a four-wheel drive in 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 with its archaeological museum and St. George’s Church, home to a 6th-century mosaic map of the Holy Land; Mount Nebo, the holy site where Moses saw the Promised Land; Bethany Beyond the Jordan, where Christians believe Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist; and the Dead Sea. All of this, minus the crowds and cost of high-season, awaits you on this one-week guided tour of Jordan!
