Description

Madaba - Wadi Rum - Petra - Dead Sea - Amman

Located at the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe, The Kingdom of Jordan is considered to be among the safest and friendliest of Arab countries in the Middle East.

So much to do, so much to see, whether Roman Ruins, vast deserts, Christian and Jewish holy spots or UNESCO World Heritage sites it be. 
You'll never know if you don't go.
You'll never shine if you don't glow!

Highlights

Petra
Petra is half-built, half-carved into rock and is surrounded by mountains riddled with passages and gorges. It’s known as the Rose City due to the color of the stone out of which it is carved. Walk through the ancient city and capture the beauty & grandeur of this UNESCO World Heritage Site to understand why it’s one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.

Dead Sea
At over 400 meters below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on the face of the Earth. As it is 10 times as salty as the ocean, plants and animals cannot flourish, hence its name. It’s the perfect place for you to float in the waters, as you read a book or cover your body with its therapeutic mud and maybe get a massage!

Wadi Rum
Known also as the Valley of the Moon, this desert is cut into the sandstone and granite rock. Trace the steps of Lawrence of Arabia and like him, get mesmerized by its majestic beauty. Take a four wheel drive, jeep safari and then camp in tents under the stars, in a once in a lifetime opportunity.
