Places you'll visit

Description

After pickup from your location in Amman, settle into your private, air-conditioned vehicle with your private driver. Sit back and relax as you journey south through Jordan. As you travel, gaze at the desert landscapes and hear tales of Petra’s history. Hewn into a sandstone valley by the Nabataean people some 2,000 years ago, this ancient rose-red rock city was located at the crossroads of age-old trading routes.

On arrival, leave your vehicle, and enjoy a 2-hour tour of this UNESCO-listed wonder. As you explore, listen as your guide describes how the Nabataeans sculpted the buildings, and learn how they mastered the harsh desert conditions to make their lives here. After around two hours of exploring, return to Petra’s entrance and rejoin your private vehicle and driver. Then, journey back to Amman, where your day trip ends with a drop-off in Amman.

Itinerary

Day tour to Petra

Pick up in Amman, morning departure via the desert high way to Petra for a full day visit of the city. We will start our journey to explore Petra, aptly described as the “rose-red city, half as old as time”. The ancient city was founded by the Nabateans 2000 years ago. Its massive architectural structure and its multicolored stones are an incredible attraction. The visit of the ancient Nabatean capital starts on horseback, followed by a walk through the Siq, a long narrow fissure between two overhanging cliffs. Towards the end of the Siq, you will be spellbound by Petra’s most famous monument; the Treasury. The tour then proceeds to gradually unfold the mysteries of the city. Afternoon transfer back to Amman. (No accommodation booked).
