Lawrence Tour of Jordan

The history of Jordan may be etched in stone (and buried by sand), but its future is written in glass and steel. The country that captivated Lawrence of Arabia and Indiana Jones is now yours to explore. We see the best in seven days on this locally escorted tour.

Discover Jerash, the Dead Sea, Petra and Wadi Rum on this 7 day tour of Jordan from Amman. Explore Amman and admire the city’s impressive Roman theater. Explore ancient ruins in Jerash, float in the Dead Sea’s salty waters and gaze over the rugged Moab Desert. Visit St George’s Church in Madaba and learn of the city’s biblical sites. Take in panoramic views over the Jordan Valley from Mount Nebo. Enjoy a full day’s sightseeing in UNESCO–listed Petra and explore Wadi Rum in style by 4×4 Jeep.

Start this seven-day tour  in Amman, one of the Middle East’s up and coming cities. Where underground galleries, trendy cafes and skyscrapers can be found together with the treasures from Islamic antiquity.

Then there’s the desert Jordan, the Nabataean kingdom among the dunes –home to crusader castles, the desert of Lawrence of Arabia and white-robed shepherds leading their sheep across the desert.

Travel across the lunar landscape of Wadi Rum on a 4 X 4 safari, float in the Dead Sea, explore palm-fringed wadis and wander old Roman roads to the ancient city of Petra.

* As a Muslim country, Jordan observes Ramadan. If you are planning to travel during Ramadan, it’s important to consider that many restaurants and shops will either be closed or operating on reduced hours during this time.
* The weather in Jordan can get quite extreme. Overall, it tends to be hot during the day and cold at night (in desert areas, expect it to be extremely hot during the day and freezing at night). Yet during winter it can get bitterly cold, with snowfall occurring in some parts of the country.
* Travelling during the summer months (June, July and August) can be challenging for those not accustomed to the heat, so visiting Jordan during spring and autumn is recommended for those who wish to escape the hotter temperatures.
