Details about this tour

From Jerusalem, your first day starts by crossing to Jordan via the Sheikh Hussein border. Driving past the lush mountains of the countrys north, your first stop is one of the worlds best-preserved Roman cities: Jerash. The impressive Hadrians arch marks the entrance to a variety of colonnaded streets, perfectly designed theatres and vast squares.

After a traditional lunch, youll head to Ammans Citadel, where you can learn about the history of one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, and enjoy the panoramic views across this modern capital. In the afternoon, the route will take you to a Bedouin camp near modern Petra, allowing the unique experience of Bedouin hospitality including a delicious dinner, local music and stargazing next to a warming campfire. Youll spent the night here in one of the traditional, comfortable huts, where real beds and sheets are provided alongside a towel.

The next morning, youll board your minivan again just after breakfast and depart for Petra. The entire day is dedicated to wandering the red-rose city and its famous archaeological sites built by the Nabataeans some 2.000 years ago. The first half will be a guided tour past the siq and the treasury, while after a local lunch youll have time to go explore other sites like the monastery or royal tombs. In the evening, youll head back for dinner and another night in the Bedouin camp.

Your last day consists of an exciting 4x4 Jeep tour through the virtually untouched, moon-like desert landscape of Wadi Rum. After lunch at a local restaurant, youll make your way to the Allenby Border crossing, and arrive back in Jerusalem by late evening.

    I was mostly interested by Petra, but I was so impressed by Jerash and Wadi Rum. Ali was a great guide, the bedouin camp was lovely and we ate really well. I would love to go back and see more of Jordan. We were there late June and it was warm, but it also meant the sites were not too busy, so I do not regret that choice.

    Altamente recomendable!!
    Viajamos en familia mi esposo, mis dos hijos 27 y 25 años cada uno y yo.
    El proveedor es Abraham Tours y el guía fue Mahdi, una persona muy profesional, preparado, abierto a cualquier tipo de preguntas, siempre cuidando al grupo y atento a las necesidades de cada uno.
    El cruce con la frontera sin ningún contratiempo ya que vas muy cuidado y guiado.
    El tour en si es muy bueno en todos sentidos la comida, el transporte, los tiempos para cada actividad en fin.. no hay peros.
    Nosotros decidimos estar en el campamento es un lugar hermoso en medio del desierto, las cenas deliciosas y abundantes, el desayuno un poco limitado en variedad no así en cantidad.
    Las habitaciones por que en realidad es como una habitación ya que esta alfombrada y cuenta con dos camas individuales es muy limpia, un poco fría la verdad aunque te dan todas las mantas que requieras.
    Lo único que debes considerar es el asunto del baño ya que lo compartes con 40-50 personas hay 4 regaderas que no son suficientes y por la cantidad de personas que las usan es difícil conservarlas limpias así como los baños en general. Los dos días nos toco bañarnos con agua fría, por la misma razón de la demanda. Fuera del baño la verdad es que todo valió la pena en el campamento.
    Los lugares visitados son hermosos ni que decir de Petra, mucho más de lo que esperado!!
    El tour por el desierto y las vistas espectaculares también valió la pena.
    Aunque el trayecto es un poco largo Mahdi se encargo de hacerlo agradable ya que nos brindó todo su conocimiento acerca de la cultura su cultura y respondió sin miramientos todas nuestras preguntas.
    En conclusión: definitivamente vale la pena!!!

    Raina was one of the best guides I have ever had. She was well informed about the sights we visited, and answered all of our questions, she was professional and interesting. Definite 5 stars for her! The sights we visited were amazing.

    Our guide was fantastic and everything was organized and exceeded my expectations. A full day in Petra was amazing, especially the free afternoon to explore on your own. Jeresh was spectacular, and the jeep ride in Wadi Rum was wonderful. Highly recommend. Accommodations in the Bedoin-type tents were fine.
