Itinerary

Day 1: Day 1: Amman - Petra: 3 hours driving from Amman 

Stop At: Jordan Private Tours and Travel, Amman 11623 Jordan
Depart to the south toward the Nabatean Red Rose City of Petra that is considered one of the wonders of the world. A city 139 miles (225 kilometers) from Amman that was carved in stone more than 2000 years ago in order to dominate the trade routes of ancient Arabia. Visit its towns, damns, and water channels and enjoy a walk along the narrow siq, a path which is the main entrance to the city. The first thing you will see is the Khazneh, which was believed to hold countless treasures. You will also see other monuments such as The Monastery and the Altar of Sacrifice. In the afternoon you will move towards Wadi Rum, called the valley of moon, where the movie Lawrence of Arabia was filmed and lately The Martian. You will spend the night in a Bedouin camp inside Rum reserve, in a very unique calm and quiet spot whilst having dinner cooked according to Bedouin style and evening activities (The camp consist of Tents, with beds, blankets , Toilets, dining room - all necessaries for life including electricity via solar system).
Duration: 6 hours

Day 2: Day 2: Petra - Wadi Rum and Dead Sea

Stop At: Wadi Rum Protected Area, Wadi Rum Jordan
After breakfast you will have a short visit of Wadi Rum in a 4x4 Jeep. Wadi Rum is a uniquely-shaped massive mountain that rose among the rosy red sand of the desert with towering cliffs of various brownish, reddish and golden colors. Next, you will make your way toward Gulf of Aqaba on the Red sea , Then, you will transfer to the Dead Sea which sits over 1300 feet (400 m) below sea level. The Dead Sea is one of the most incredible places in the world. It is known for the Biblical story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, which were destroyed by fire and brimstone. The Dead Sea speaks for itself: there are no living fish. It is by far one of Jordan's most impressive and spectacular places to visit. Its calm, shining water glowing from the scorching sun above, is known for the concentration of salt and minerals which makes it a therapeutic as well as a unique swimming experience not to be missed. Enjoy some free time to swim before returning to your hotel in Amman.

Please note: The temperature drops down quickly at Wadi Rum during the night , and it becomes very cold to freezing during winter time ( December & January), be aware that there is no heating on the tents but there is enough blankets, so you could choose the private option to make changes for the night stay to more luxurious camps ( Group Tours will always be using the same camp with no heating on the tens - this can not be changed).

Collection from my hotel was on time by mr ahmad al zboon made me feel very welcome.
Petra was amazing you get 5 hours to try see everything which is tough .
Walking threw the siq to the treasury amazing had to do the climb to get that high level pic.
You have got to do the monastery but 850 steps its a killer on the legs but worth it.
Wadi rum camp very good traditional food and music ,jeep safari was ok.
Dead sea its a must to float in it but very strange feeling.
If you get the pleasure to have mr. ahmed al zboon as your driver and guide you won't go far wrong very nice man.

Thanks

The tour was very well organised and our driver Jafar was very knowledgeable about Jordan and its history. He was very helpful and also recommended dos and don’ts when visiting certain attractions. He was very outgoing and kept a light mood for the group throughout the whole experience. Thank you!

I was a single traveler and went for this excursion based strictly on reviews. The tour was well organised. I was picked up by Jaffar, an experienced tour guide. In total we were 5 passengers. We went to Petra and spent there enough time to visit most important sites. The same day we moved to Wadi Rum just in time to see a sunset. The camp at Wadi Rum had electricity, showers and the room was spacious and comfortable, We had an excellent dinner. In the morning we had a breakfast and Jeep safari visiting interesting places of the desert.
Afterwards we went to the dead sea resort to just get a glimpse of the seaside resort. Near the border of Egypt and Palestine. Dead Sea was our last stop, at a hotel beach. we paid 20 JD to enter with a set of swimming pools and mud treatment included. In the late afternoon Jaffar took us back to our hotel. Throughout the tour Jaffar was explaining and showing us sites. We had water provided for us and Jaffar kept on getting us also fruits, ice creams and kebabs which is not included in the price. To sumarise, perfect tour with a perfect tour guide. Thanks Jaffar

Fantastic experience, the tour guide Jafar was excellent. He is very caring and knowledgeable. All of the places we visited offered an true experience of Jordan. We learned so much. Jafar stopped to buy us lunch fruit and provided us with water continually.

This tour, specifically with our driver Jafar, was an absolute highlight of my time in Jordan. The trip was well-paced, informative, fun, and an overall unforgettable experience. I would give it 6 stars if possible!
