day 1
Beginning at your hotel in Cairo, you will be brought to Your flight from Cairo to Amman, Jordan, leaves at 8:00 AM. 9:25 AM arrival in Jordan where you will be met by another English-speaking representative who will assist you with getting your visa, retrieving your bags and going through customs. Visas for US citizens are $15 USD, paid in cash upon arrival for US citizens. Other nationalities, please check with your local Jordanian Consulate for entry visa policies.
Leaving the Amman airport* and driving southward toward Petra, your first visit is to Madaba where the St George's Greek Orthodox Church has a famous mosaic on the floor. Made during the 6th century AD, the mosaic shows the pilgrimage from the surrounding areas to the Holy Land. You can even find Egypt on this map!

Your next visit recalls the story of Moses and his journey to the Promised Land. At Mount Nebo there is a Memorial for Musa (Moses) and a 4th century church which Italian Franciscan priests excavated and restored in 1933. The panoramic view overlooks the Jordan River Valley, the Dead Sea, Jericho and Jerusalem.

In the Bible story, Moses does not ever arrive at the Promised Land, but he is able to see it from a distance before he dies. It is from Mount Nebo that one can see it in the distance (on a clear day). It is also believed that this is the burial place of Moses.

Afternoon arrival in Petra and time to get situated in your hotel.
Optional add-on: Drive from the Amman airport to Petra via the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth. Float in the mineral rich waters at one of the Dead Sea spas. You can still visit Madaba and Mt. Nebo if you choose this option.

*Note: You can also substitute sightseeing at Jerash for the sightseeing at Madaba and Mount Nebo on arrival day. You would then do Madaba and Mount Nebo on your last day, before departure from Amman airport. Contact us for the current price for the addition of Jerash to this program.

Jerash is the best example of a Roman provincial city in the whole Middle East. You will visit Hadrian's Arch, Hippodrome, a colonnaded street, the cathedral, North Theater, South Theater and the Jerash Archeological Museum.

Day 2

in Petra

A full day of sightseeing in the Red Rose City of Petra. First established during the 6th C. BC by Nabataen Arabs, Petra became a trading center for the caravans during what was the Ptolemaic era in Egypt.
Hailed as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, it is a magical experience to enter this hidden city through a long narrow Siq. The natural beauty is breathtaking, and then to find beautifully carved buildings made by human hands is a memorable experience.

Unlike the other tourists who have only a short 2-hour visit to the site, your tour will include the services of a local English-speaking guide for the whole day. This will give you a chance to explore the area at a slower pace (and take breaks from all the hiking) and see more of the many buildings there. There is a horseback ride included that brings you to the entrance of the canyon. Camels are available for hire, once you are inside the city.
