11-Day tour Jordan to Israel

Day 1, Flight to Amman: Welcome to Jordan! You will be met by our representative to assist you through the transition to Jordan. Then we will drive you to the great city of Amman, Jordan’s capital, where you will enjoy dinner and stay overnight.

Day 2, Amman – Jerash – Umm Qais – Ajloun – Amman: Today, you will visit Jerash, the Pompeii of the East. You will enter Jerash through the monumental South Gate and find yourself wandering around in a Roman city. You will walk in the Oval Plaza surrounded by colonnades and visit the Roman theatre and Byzantine churches with mosaic-covered floors. Enjoy a stroll along Cardo, the main road of Jerash, and pass by the Nymphaeum. Jerash has been covered by sand for centuries, the main reason why it is still so well-preserved. Experience the marvelous acoustics of the theatre, the stage of the Jerash music festival which takes place every year. See for yourself how the Romans built the earthquake-proof columns of the colonnaded streets. Next you will visit Umm Qais, which was built mainly out of black basalt. Here you can enjoy the impressive view over Lake Tiberius and the Golan Heights. At the guesthouse we will serve you a traditional mezze lunch. On the way back to Amman, you will visit the Islamic military castle of Ajloun. The castle was used by the Islamic armies of Saladin to protect the region against the crusaders. After dinner in the hotel, you will have plenty of time to enjoy the nightlife in Amman.

Your next stop will be Mount Nebo where, like Moses, you will be able to look over the Holy Land and the Dead Sea. The West Bank city of Jericho can usually be seen from the summit as well as Jerusalem on a very clear day. Your journey will continue along the King Highway. On the way you will pass through Wadi Mujib, the grand canyon of Jordan and then stop in Karak for lunch. Here, in the afternoon, you will visit the huge castle where Saladin and Richard Lionheart fought during the crusades. While enjoying the beautiful landscapes, the journey continues along the King Highway to Petra, your final destination for today.

You will pass the famous “seven pillars of wisdom,” described by Lawrence of Arabia and explore Wadi Rum by jeep escorted by a Bedouin guide.
