Full description
Day 1:

Your tour begins with a drive through the fertile Jordan Valley to the Sheikh Hussein border crossing in the North. Your first stop is Jerash, one of the world’s best-preserved Roman towns. Journey through time as you walk the colonnaded streets behind the impressive Hadrian’s Arch, and discover the Greco-Roman architecture telling 4,000 years of Mediterranean history.

After lunch at a local restaurant, head to the capital to learn about Amman’s cultural importance and eventful past, featuring palaces, a museum and the Temple of Hercules, and panoramic views across the city. Drive to a Bedouin camp near Petra, savor a traditional dinner, enjoy authentic Bedouin hospitality beneath the clear desert skies and listen to local music, before heading to rest in your tent’s comfortable bed.

Day 2:

After breakfast, take a day to explore Petra, carved into the red stone by the Nabataeans around 2,000 years ago. Hear about Petra’s complex history, followed by lunch in a local restaurant. In the afternoon, explore the sites by yourself, and admire the Hellenistic architecture, before heading back for dinner.

Day 3:

Your last day starts with an exciting ride through the exquisite and virtually untouched desert landscape of Wadi Rum. A 4x4 jeep will take you to stunning sights and viewpoints, past towering cliffs of weathered stone and desert animals. After lunch at a local restaurant, head to the Allenby Bridge border crossing, and by late evening arrive back in Jerusalem.

Thank you Abraham Tours for our Jordan 3 day trip. We have loved the experience and certainly Petra exceeded our expectations. What an amazing place! Pictures do not do it justice. Wadi Rum is just spectacular and we are now left with memories that will be cherished forever. Our tour guide, Abdullah was friendly and very knowledgeable. Food was great and coach very comfortable. Bedouin camp standards are basic and if you are not a frequent camper you might struggle with basic facilities. There was no heaters provided in tents and during winter season this should be a standard in each tent. No hot water in the morning... No hooks or shelves to put your things on when taking a shower resulted in personal belongings getting wet. Nevertheless, Jordan is an amazing country and I would highly recommend taking this tour but pay for a hotel upgrade if you do mind basic camping standard.
