Jordan 3 days private tour: Amman to Petra and Wadi Rum, ending in Amman or Eilat
"The desert is beautiful," the little prince added. And that was true. I have always loved the desert.
One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing.
Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams . . .

Day 1 - we will pick you up from Amman airport and drive you down to Petra for the night there in 3* hotel. According to your flight landing time we might be able to visit Amman before. Please advise your arrival time so we can offer you different options. Accommodation options in Petra are available below.
Day 2 - after breakfast we will pick you up from your Petra hotel, and transfer to Wadi Rum (approx 1 hour). This day covers the highlights of Wadi Rum. Having arrived at the village of Rum inside the nature reserve, we board 4X4 jeeps, driven by professional Bedouin drivers and journey to the sandstone area of Wadi Rum. Here we go off-road into its unique landscape and get right off the beaten track to explore rarely travelled ancient merchant routes. The enchanting Wadi Rum is an area almost surreal in its distinctive beauty. We cross red sand dunes and explore the beautifully eroded pillars of sandstone rock. It was this area of Wadi Rum that so inspired T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia). Wadi Rums beauty remains intact and its breathtaking scenery is still an inspiration for those who travel there. Lunch is enjoyed on route in the great outdoors. The tour includes the Seven Pillars, Khaz Ali canyon and Jabel Um Asharim. At the end we will drive back to Petra for an overnight. Back to Petra to your hotel.
Day 3: We begin our tour in Petra early. We head straight to the ancient city of Petra. The tour takes in the most popular highlights of Petra beginning with the Treasury and the Siq Canyon and heading right through the main center of the site. After lunch in Petra we have some free-time. Time allowing you may choose to take an optional hike up to The Monastery on Jabel A-Deir (highly recommended), or the High Place of Sacrifice. Following the tour we meet you at our nearby offices to drive you back to Amman or to end the tour in Eilat.
You also have the option, for a supplement, of ascending to the summit of Aaron's Mountain to the shrine of Aarons Tomb (also called Jabal Haroun) we board a local Bedouin 4x4 pick-up for the off-road drive to Mount Aaron. We leave the vehicle where the jeep trail ends and begin the half hour ascent to its summit on foot. On the mountain peak we find Aarons shrine and enjoy the astonishing panoramic views from the mountain's summit
Tour to Wadi Rum from Amman
Climbing to the Monastery:
Our tour guide accompanies the group for four hours which enough time to cover a lot of ground and information about the site. Before he departs, he joins the group for lunch at a nearby restaurant, close to the path to the Monastery. The ascent to the monastery is done indecently after lunch and our vehicle meets the guests at the exit of Petra. Guides may be booked for the walk to the monastery for an additional $50, but since the route is straightforward there is little point in using a tour guide for this section.
