  • Day 2: Madaba – Mount Nebo – Baptism Site expand_more
    • Meet the tour guide at the airport (or hotel or any other desired location) and visit Madaba. The city of mosaics has more biblical sites than you can imagine. Here is a taste of what is in and around Madaba.
      • St. George Church: In the heart of Madaba, with a map of the old Holy land documenting all cities, is a 2nd-century beauty that speaks history. The icons on the walls inspire the Orthodox spirit of the church, a must-see!
      • The Martyrs Church: In the back corner of St. George's Church is this amazing site with so much history.
      • The Catholic Church: Recognized by the Vatican in 1976, it became a visited site by both tourists and pilgrims. This church comes with a museum and bell tower, which is amazing. Tunnels, mosaics, you name it, along with a Moabite well dating to 3000 years ago.
      • Kherbet Almukhayyat: Located in between Madaba and Mount Nebo is one of the hidden jewels of Jordan, a 6th-century church with the most beautiful storytelling piece of mosaic ever.
      • Apostles Church: The 6th-century structure with mosaic floors and a unique building, this landmark, as significant as it is, is also the landmark marking the beginning of the king's way as it exists today.
    • Head to Mount Nibo. A cliff 710 meters above sea level overlooking Jericho and Jerusalem on a clear day is this site with a church dating back to the 4th century for the memory of Prophet Moses, the place in the Bible where it mentioned that Moses was granted a view of the promised land. It also comes with a museum and some outstanding mosaic work.
    • Visit the Baptism Site and enjoy the tour in the area of the Jordan River. At this point, Jesus met with his cousin John to be baptized. Located 7 km to the north of the Dead Sea is the actual baptism site of Jesus Christ, Bethany Beyond the Jordan. At this point, Jesus met with his cousin John to be baptized. There is a shrine with a mosaic floor, and the site was visited by several popes, ending with Pope Francis.
    • Return to Amman for an overnight stay.
  • Day 3: Visit Petra expand_more
    • Start early from Amman, heading to Petra to arrive there after 3.5 hours of driving.
    • Visit the site of Petra and enjoy a min of 8 hours tour of the site. The rosy red charm carved in the sandstone mountains of Wadi Musa is evidence of the connection between the old cultures. The city will have an effect on you like a child in a candy shop. The marvellous colours and atmosphere of the Siq are as if time stood still; you don't actually walk down the path, it's more like gliding, and as it opens itself wide to the site of the treasury, it will hit you like an Indiana-Jones-movie scene and a secret hidden for thousands of years, a sight like no other. Taking the steps up to the Monastery is long and tiring, but when you reach there, you can say "top of the world" and no less. A cup of tea at the view up there with the fresh breeze around sunset will be priceless.
    • Go to little Petra to complete the picture of the culture that built this amazing city. Discover a 4000-year-old winery and the drawings from before the clock started to tick. It is a must-see wonder of the world. 
    • Get on the road again towards Wadi Rum. Head to your camp for a Zarb dinner and get ready for an adventure to see an enormous amount of stars you have seen. On a clear night without the moon, it is also possible to see the Milky Way. Enjoy a serene night at your camp.
  • Day 4: Explore the Attractions of the Moon village expand_more
    • Have 2 hours of 4x4 ride in the morning in the vastness of the most tranquil place you have ever been to! After that, be on the way along the Great Rift Valley to arrive at the lowest point on earth. 
    • Enjoy your lunch, and take a swim and a mud bath at the Dead Sea, which will leave you with softer and firmer skin. 
    • Return to Amman or the airport.

Know before you go
  • Amman: Join this panoramic tour of the city of Amman around the old and new parts of it; if you are here for the first time, then this is your chance to visit the city that will sweep you off your feet. This is where ancient meets the modern, beautifully! The Roman Theatre is believed to be Greek of origin, but no matter, it was the place your guide would always start his journey from before heading downtown as a child. Maybe he just wanted to salute the ancient crowds before he headed into town! You will be able to smell the history before you lay an eye on it. Imagine the second biggest Roman theatre in the world among real Souqs. The arches and the shops are just lined up there, watching the citadel as it sits quietly on top of the surrounding hills; diverse is what you will find here. The guide will personally recommend one of those hole-in-the-wall eateries and some Kenafah for dessert to cap off your tour. Maybe go for a walk in Rainbow St if you are still eager to take in more of the city. Come to Amman and feel right at home!
