Day at leisure. This evening meet your Tour Director for a welcome dinner.
Start this morning with guided city sightseeing of Amman and a visit to the Roman Amphitheatre. Later, travel to Jerash, which was inhabited as early as 3200 BC. Although the city was impacted by the earthquake of 749 AD, it is the site of the best preserved Greco-Roman ruins in the Middle East. Next, stop in Umm Qais, site of the Gadarene swine miracle.
An exciting visit to Wadi Rum is on the program today. Wadi Rum is the largest wadi (ravine) in Jordan and made eternally famous through the movie Lawrence of Arabia. Enjoy spectacular four-wheeling through the sand dunes and receive a keffiyeh, a local headscarf. Continue to the "Rose-Red City" of Petra, where you can relax at your hotel this evening or explore the ancient city.
Full day of guided sightseeing in Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Lost to the world for centuries, it is located in the biblical land of Moab. Enjoy an unforgettable experience as you walk down the Siq, the narrow gorge made famous in the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Stand in awe in front of the iconic and famed treasury. You'll see spectacular temples and tombs created out of the rose-colored sandstone, and sip tea in a real Bedouin Tent.
This morning features Kerak, with a visit to the Crusader Castle and Wadi Mujib, the "Jordanian Grand Canyon." Continue to your hotel at the Dead Sea for your 2-night stay.
A fascinating day awaits! Stop in Madaba to visit St. George's Church, which houses a precious 6th-century mosaic map of the Holy Land. Also explore the Madaba Archaeological Museum. Today's major highlight is a visit to Mount Nebo, where Moses saw the Promised Land. Next is Bethany Beyond the Jordan, where Christians believe that Jesus was baptised by John the Baptist. Back at the Dead Sea tonight, enjoy a farewell dinner with your traveling companions to celebrate an unforgettable journey.
