Tour to Petra And Wadi Rum From Amman. 

 

day 1: Amman – Petra 

After breakfast and a hotel pickup by your car and driver, travel south through the rugged desert landscapes to Petra, the ancient rock city in Jordan’s Shara Mountains — your time on the road is roughly 3 hours.

After lunch  enjoy 2-hour walking tour of this awe-inspiring Nabataean city and UNESCO World Heritage site with a local guide. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, Petra was carved into a sandstone gorge more than 2,000 years ago to dominate the trading routes of ancient Arabia and is rightly regarded as the jewel in the crown of Jordan’s historic sights.

Walk along the narrow Siq, the high-walled fissure in the rocks that winds into the heart of the city. Then, stop in your tracks at your first breathtaking glimpse of the Treasury, known locally as El-Khazneh —Petra’s stellar sight. Wonder at its intricate façade and hear how movies such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade were filmed here.

Take photos of this glorious monument and then continue your tour. See Petra’s ornate tombs cut into the rock face and admire the stunning theater that once sat 3,000 spectators. As you walk, hear stories and facts about the ingenious Nabataeans who chose, carved out and then made this place their home so long ago. After your walking tour finishes, check in and enjoy dinner at your hotel.

 

Day 2: Petra – Wadi Rum – Dead Sea or Amman  Start your day with breakfast at your hotel and then travel to the spectacular desert wilderness of Wadi Rum. Sometimes known as the ‘Valley of the Moon’ for its lunar-like landscapes, this protected region of mountains, dunes and canyons was where TE Lawrence, known as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ fought alongside the Bedouin locals in World War I.

The locals have named many of the sites in Wadi Rum after Lawrence and numerous scenes from the iconic movie, Lawrence of Arabia, were filmed on location here. Enjoy an exhilarating 2-hour trip by 4×4 through this majestic place to immerse yourself in its serene beauty and ever-changing colors. Rumble along desert valleys, through narrow gorges and past red dunes and mountains and stop to take photos along the way back to amman or to the dead sea .
