The Magic Of Jordan
A crossroads between three continents, Jordan’s arid lands hold a rich cultural heritage. This tour reveals the very best of the country’s history and geography. Visit the classical city of Jerash, famed for its Roman ruins; the Biblical site of Mount Nebo; and both the rock-hewn city of Petra and lesser-known ‘Little Petra’. The shifting sands of Wadi Rum and the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea complete your exploration.
