Highlights
  • Prebooking a tour of Jordan from Israel means you can see more in limited time
  • Cover key highlights in just two days of exploration
  • Experience Bedouin culture at a Petra camp, plus most meals
  • Round-trip transport from central Jerusalem takes care of logistics
What to Expect
Meet a driver in central Jerusalem on Day 1 and then cross the Jordan River Valley as you travel into Northern Jordan, passing a 12th-century Crusader castle along the way. The first stop is the ancient Roman city of Jerash, where you find well-preserved streets, colonnades, mosaics, and theaters dating back thousands of years. Next, head to Amman's bustling downtown to see Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic ruins set high above the city center on a driving tour. The day concludes at a Bedouin camp in Petra—with a Bedouin dinner served by a blazing fire. On Day 2, wake for a guided tour of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and ancient Nabatean city. Enter through the winding Siq, a narrow slot canyon. Following a packed lunch in Petra, begin the return trip to Israel, where this tour concludes at the original departure point.

The guide, the meals, the overnight camping were all top notch....was glad I went with the main tour Abraham. Was good value for money I thought. I personally think if you have time do 3 days so you get to have a fuller day in Petra and try to do the night lights at Petra too

I would have given the tour an "Excellent" rating. The transfer to Jordan, the tour guide and our bus driver in Jordan were amazing - as were the buses that transported us. The Bedouin camp was very nice, the food at the restaurants - all acceptable. The return to Jerusalem
