Travel this morning from the modern city of Amman to the towering 12th century Ayyubid castle at Ajloun, nestled among sprawling pine forests.

Next, to the northwest corner of the country to see the ruins of the ancient town of Gadara, now called Umm Qais.

DAY 4, Thursday - Jerash , Amman City Tour
Travel north to the vast archaeological site of Jerash, known as the "Pompei Of The East", one of the best preserved Roman provincial towns in the world, uncovered after being hidden in the sand for centuries. Tour the soaring Temples of Artemis and Zeus, the Roman Forum, Hadrian's Arch, the massive theatre and mile-long Street of Columns. Afterwards, discover contrasting Amman - a unique blend of old and new, with a history dating back to the Stone Age. Begin at the ancient Citadel, towering above the city, site of ancient Rabbath-Ammon. Excavations here have revealed numerous Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic remains. The most impressive building, known as al-Qasr ("the Palace"), dates back to the Islamic Umayyad period. See the Temple of Hercules and the Jordan archaeological Museum, with its extensive collection of antiquities ranging from prehistoric times to the 15th century. After a panoramic tour of the city and its suburbs, continue to the Roman Theater, an impressive relic of ancient Philadelphia, built during the reign of Antonius Pius. Pass through the bustling bazaars (Souks) to the modern part of the city where the American Embassy is housed on our return to the hotel

DAY 5, Friday - Mt. Nebo, Madaba
Travel along mountain-fringed King’s Highway towards Petra. On the way, visit Mount Nebo, where the Bible says Moses climbed to see the Promised Land, and where he is presumed buried overlooking the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea. Continue to Madaba; enter the Church of St. George to view the vivid 6th century Byzantine map created of mosaic tiles depicting Jerusalem and the Holy Lands. After an included lunch, travel further to the town of Shobak, perched in a remote landscape. A great photo opportunity awaits you at the impressive Shobak Castle, formerly called Mont Real (the Royal Mountain), a reminder of former Crusader glory, dating back to 1116 AD. Pass through small villages and towns where olives, grapes, figs, and apricots are grown in the fertile fields. Arrive in the town of Petra for overnight
Optional: Dinner Package
Overnight: Petra
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 6, Saturday - Full Day in Petra
An astonishing day exploring Petra! Enter the "rose red" city hand-sculpted from a mountain range by the Nabateans in the 3rd century BC. Begin your walk (or ride) through the "Siq", a winding canyon road. At the end, you’ll gaze in total amazement at Petra’s most extraordinary monument - the towering Treasury building rising over 140 feet. Beyond, discover soaring temples, elaborate royal tombs, a theatre, burial champers and water channels - all remnants of a once great Nabatean culture. Today, Petra is both a Jordanian national treasure and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience! There will be time on your own to further explore Petra before returning to the hotel with a stop at Moses Springs
Optional: Dinner Package
Overnight: Petra
Meals: Breakfast

DAY 7, Sunday - Wadi Rum Desert, Travel to Dead Sea
Morning departure to Wadi Rum, a surreal desert terrain of ancient river beds, wind-sculpted mountains, vast desert vistas and pastel colored sands. This UNESCO World Heritage Site, often described as the "Valley of the Moon", served as inspiration (and site of the filming) for T.E. Lawrence’s novel, Lawrence of Arabia. Ride in a 4x4 vehicle to explore the valley, with its looming rock faces that seem to grow directly out of the sand and endless skies. Cross the huge red sand dunes, and the eroded pillars of sandstone rock known as "The Seven Pillars". Then, a fabulous lunch in an authentic Bedouin Tent in the midst of the desert, where you’ll be introduced to "Zarb" -a selection of foods cooked in an oven with hot coals beneath the desert floor. Afterwards, we travel to our hotel in the unique Dead Sea area. Here, you can float in the "unsinkable" buoyant, salty waters at the lowest spot on earth. Take time to relax and enjoy the benefits of the mineral-rich therapeutic waters. Later this evening, a farewell dinner with your tour manager and travel companions

Half Day Bethany

Day #8 01 Apr 2014 - 31 Mar 2015         $75
This morning, travel to the religious site of Bethany to explore first-hand the foundations of Christianity. The site of John the Baptist's settlement at Bethany where Jesus was baptized has long been known from the Bible and from Byzantine and medieval texts. The site has now been identified on the east bank of the Jordan River in Jordan, only 15 minutes by car from the Dead Sea Hotel. The Bethany area site formed part of the early Christian pilgrimage route between Jerusalem, the Jordan River, and Mount Nebo. This area is also associated with the biblical account of how the Prophet Elijah (Mar Elias in Arabic) ascended to heaven in a whirlwind on a chariot of fire. This is not to be confused with the village of Bethany near Jerusalem, where the Bible says Lazarus was raised from the dead. After the tour transfer back to your hotel.

Approximate tour duration is 3 hours.
