This tour will take you all around Jordan. And you will learn about its history, culture & its people. Which will make you merge with the land & make you feel like part of it. Adding to this is the unmatchable experience of connecting to earth’s nature in Wadi Rum by stargazing strait into the milky way & at the lowest point on earth by floating on the world’s saltiest body of water. If you know nothing about Jordan and you’re looking for an authentic Middle Eastern experience, look no further.

●7am: Breakfast at the hotel.
●Our tour will start off by going to Amman’s Citadel. Which is situated on a “mountain” in central Amman. Known for being one of the oldest continuously inhabited places. This first stop will give you a glimpse over the capital before going to Amman-Downtown. Known as “Al-Balad” by the locals, you will get to see the different & various markets and ancient Souks. Ending this tour will be the visit of the most obvious and impressive remnant of its Roman past. The Roman theater that was built at the time Amman was known as “Philadelphia” (around 106AD).
● At the end of the day we will bring you back to your hotel in Amman.
●7am: Breakfast at the hotel.

●Next we will go on a mosaic tour till we reach Madaba. A city known for having a mosaic map of the Holy Land. Which dates back to the 6th century AD, preserved in the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George.
●We will then be driving toward the lowest point on Earth passing by winding roads. Enjoy a stress-free day, floating in the saltiest body of water in the world. The Dead Sea is known to be Earth’s lowest elevation on land and the deepest hyper-saline lake in the world. Its harsh environment does not permit the flourishment of any plant or animals. On the other hand, it has extremely healthy & beneficial properties that attracted visitors for thousands of years and today it will supply you with natural mud that you can spread on your skin putting any skincare lotions to shame.
(PS: be careful not to splash dead sea’s water in your eyes…. it’s salt:).

Known to be one of the seven wonders of the world. Just try to grasp the fact that the Arab Nabateans, more than 2000 years ago, carved this 45m high monument Treasury into the red mountain rock.
● Afterwards, we’ll continue to our last stop in South Jordan. To the most impressive deserts in the world. You will get to see the naturally multi-colored canyons, towering sandstone mountains and dunes of Wadi Rum. Known as the Valley of the Moon. This place was made famous for being used as a background setting for numerous films (“The Martian”-2015, “Rogue One”-2016, “Aladdin”-2019, just to name a few…). At this point you’ll have the opportunity to discover these landscapes by Jeep for 2 hours (or you can also choose to ride a Camel or a Horse).
