Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Jerusalem - Sheikh Hussein - Jerash - Amman City Tour - Petra

Ancient Jerash

Rise early on the first day of your tour, pack your bags, and wave farewell to Jerusalem as you make your way to the Sheik Hussein border. After crossing the border, it's on to Jerash for a stroll through history on a site regarded as one of the most important and best preserved Roman cities in the Middle East. Return to the car and drive south to Amman, where an ancient citadel and Roman theater offer more historical exploration, and then, finally, make your way to Petra where you'll spend the night. 

Day 2: Petra - Allenby Crossing - Jerusalem

Petra
View from the Garden Hall in Petra

Welcome to "The Red Rose City" of Petra! Spend your day marveling at the beauty of the stone-carved city, exploring its caves, and wandering through the Siq, with its striking Treasury. This main entrance to the ancient Nabatean city is considered one of the New 7 Wonders of the World — and with good reason! Once you've seen the main sights, dig deeper with visits to the temple of Qasr Al-Bint and the Royal Tombs. In the mid-afternoon, take your last photos and soak up your last impressions before boarding the van for your trip back to Jerusalem.
