Full description
Step back into ancient history as you visit the Nabatean Red Rose City of Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Journey through Little Petra, a small rocky valley with carvings believed to represent the Nabatean’s caravan heading to the main city who used this as an accommodation stop for the traveling traders.

Move onto the main Petra site and learn about its magnificent history on a 2-hour guided tour. Walk or ride a horse through the famous Siq, once the main entrance to the city. Admire this rose-pink masterpiece as you walk through the canyon to explore the Royal Tombs and the High Place of Sacrifice.

Head back to the capital of Amman for a panoramic tour of the city’s highlights. Catch a glimpse of the animated markets and churches bustling with life. Pass King Hussein’s Palace and King Abdullah’s mosque, then gaze at the Roman Amphitheater carved into a hillside. Enjoy some free time in downtown Amman, meet the locals and pick up a souvenir to remind you of your trip.
