Day 1
Fly from the UK to Amman, where you'll be met and transferred to your Amman hotel for a three night stay.
Day 2
Spend the morning touring Jerash, the Classical city which is almost as impressive as Petra, before moving on to Ajloun to see the Arab castle, and to Umm Qais, another ancient city dramatically located with views over the Sea of Galilee.
Day 3
Begin the day with a tour of the capital, before heading out to a relatively unknown and intriguing temple called Iraq Al-Amir, where there is also the chance to visit a local women's collective.
Day 4
You head down the King's Highway today, stopping at Madaba to admire the mosaics, Mukawir to see where Salome danced for the head of John the Baptist, and Kerak, arguably the most imposing and impressive Crusader Castle in the Middle East. Check into your Wadi Rum Camp where you spend a night under the stars.
Day 5
After breakfast, you have a jeep tour with a local Bedouin around the canyons, rock bridges and red sands of this mystical place. After your tour you head into Petra for three nights, first stopping in Little Petra to get a taste of things to come.
Day 6
You have a tour of the ancient city of Petra today, beginning along the Siq Canyon, to the Treasury Tomb and through the heart of the site to the huge Qasr El Bint temple.
Day 7
Head back into the site under your own steam today to explore at your leisure. Take in some of the churches near the main street, or for the active, head up to The Monastery or Place of High Sacrifice. Or for a more unique return into Petra, take the path less travelled with an expert guide from Little Petra to the Monastery.
Day 8
Leaving Petra, you head back north driving along the shores of the Dead Sea, via the informative Panoramic Complex, where you spend the final two nights of the tour.
Day 9
At leisure to relax by the pool, take some spa treatments or perhaps visit the nearby site of Christ's baptism at Bethany-on-the-Jordan.
Day 10
You have a transfer back to Amman Airport today for your flight back to the UK.

This itinerary will form the basis for most trips to Jordan as it’s been designed to cover all the major highlights, as well as to include a few less well-known sights that take you off the standard tourist trail. Beginning in the north of the country visiting Jerash, Ajloun, Amman and Umm Qais, you then work your way south along the King’s Highway to the spectacle of the Wadi Rum. After a morning jeep tour through the desert, you enter the magical city of Petra, where you have two full days to explore. Your tour ends with a relaxing few days by the Dead Sea.
