The most comprehensive tour of Jordan, covering historical sights, cultural highlights and taking in the broadest range of her amazing landscapes. With every ‘Grand tour’ you start in the capital; Amman is a great introduction to the country with eye opening museums and origin stories that will surprise you. After an intensive start to your holiday, we take you south to relax in the crystal waters of the Red Sea in Aqaba. No grand tour would be complete without a night in the Wadi Rum, a region not only integral in Jordan’s beginnings, but also a popular location for star studded movies, including ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ and ‘The Martian’. Moving onto Petra, you have two full days to explore this ancient settlement. With this style of tour, you have time to explore lesser visited regions, including the secluded Dana Biosphere Reserve from which you can take serene guided and self-guided trails through the reserve. After cooling off with a walk through the Mujib Siq trail, you spend your final three nights chilling in the Dead Sea, the lowest point on dry land.
