Tour Overview

Epic desert landscapes, astounding monuments and the wonderfully restorative Dead Sea make this tiny kingdom truly rewarding to explore. On our solo travel tours of Jordan we walk the streets of the spectacular ancient city of Petra, hewn out of rose-red rock and rediscovered beneath the desert sand in 1812. We enjoy lunch in the heart of Wadi Rum, where much of ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ was filmed. And we travel to the Dead Sea, 400m below sea level, for a relaxing float in its exceptionally salty water.

Itinerary

icon Day 1 : UK - Amman

Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Amman, where we’ll base ourselves for three nights. Amman, the capital of Jordan since 1921, is built on seven hills. Remains from the Roman, Greek and Ottoman empires are dotted around the city, the most impressive being the Roman theatre in the city centre.

icon Day 2 : Ajloun - Jerash

We visit the 12th-century medieval castle at Ajloun before continuing our journey along the King’s Highway to the ancient city ruins of Jerash. With its forum of colonnaded shops, temples and theatres, Jerash might seem a little daunting at first, but it is one of the world’s best-preserved classical sites. Take some time to perch on a ledge and enjoy the spectacular views.This beautiful Greco-Roman city is also famous for its ‘Triumphal Arch’, the Hippodrome and the wide street of columns, which leads to the Temple of Artemis.

icon Day 3 : Desert Castles - Amman

We journey to the historic desert castles of Qasr Kharaneh, Qasr Amra and Qasr Azraq, before returning to Amman for a tour that includes a visit to the Citadel and the Archaeological Museum.

icon Day 4 : Amman - Mount Nebo - Madaba - Shobak - Petra

Today we visit Mount Nebo to stand on the spot from which Moses is believed to have surveyed the Promised Land. We continue to Madaba, once a flourishing Byzantine town, and the Greek Orthodox Church with its fascinating 6th-century mosaic map. We end our day at the impressive Shobak Crusader Castle, before arriving in Petra as the evening rolls in.

icon Day 5 : Petra

We’re up early for a tour of the spectacular ancient ‘Rose Red City’ of Petra, entering the city on foot. Hidden by the golden desert sand for centuries, this is one of the world’s most treasured UNESCO sites. The highlights are the spectacular Treasury and the Monastery, both of which have been hewn out of solid rock.Most of this unique city was built by the Nabataean Arabs in the 6th and 5th centuries BC. It was an important link in the caravan routes, added to by the Romans who carved out a huge theatre and possibly the spectacular classical façade of the Treasury.

icon Day 6 : Wadi Rum - Dead Sea

This morning we depart for the desert of Wadi Rum. Stunning in its beauty and inhabited by the Bedouin tribes, it epitomises the romance of the desert. Much of David Lean’s ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ was filmed here. Enjoy lunch at Sun City Camp in the heart of the desert.We continue, travelling down to the Dead Sea 400 metres below sea level, where the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah are thought to be buried beneath its waters. The Dead Sea is rich in salt - even non-swimmers can float freely in the water.

icon Day 7 : Dead Sea

Today is free to indulge yourself at the hotel - the Dead Sea is famous for its relaxation and healing properties. Alternatively, take an optional excursion to Bethany, described in the New Testament as the site where Jesus was baptised by John the Baptist.

icon Day 8 : Dead Sea - Amman - UK

We transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
