Reiserute

  • Day 1: Start Amman
    We start at our hotel in Amman on day 1 of the itinerary.  Those on the group flights from London will arrive in the evening.  Land only clients need to provide their flight details if they would like to receive a FREE arrival transfer. Your leader will leave instructions for you at the hotel. Hotel Toledo or similar
  • Day 2: Amman city tour; on to Petra via Madaba and Mt Nebo
    After an early breakfast we head to the Citadel for breathtaking views of Amman and a short tour of this site. There is a small but very interesting museum to explore.  From this viewpoint we can see the remains of the Roman Theatre in the old city area.   Leaving Amman we join the King's Highway which takes us up and down huge 'wadis' (valleys). We stop en route at Madaba, known as the city of the mosaics, and beautiful Mt Nebo where Moses saw the promised land just before he died.  Further south we reach the magnificent city of Petra; Jordan's premier historic site and one of the world's most outstanding ancient cities.  This is a full day with great sites and stunning natural landscapes. Comfortable hotel - Petra
  • Day 3: Classic tour of Petra
    This morning we have an early start to make the most of our day exploring the UNESCO World Heritage site of Petra. Petra was hidden for centuries until the Swiss explorer Burckhardt made his great discovery in 1812. It was founded by the Nabateans, an Arab tribe that arrived here in the 6th century BC. Building at Petra began in the third century BC and continued through the Roman period, financed by taxes levied on the desert caravans. Two features of Petra are unique: firstly, it is a city made defensible by being built down a series of chasms, rather than on a hilltop. Secondly, it is built directly into the rock - beautiful red and yellow sandstone carved into the most impressive facades which glow in the brilliant sunlight. To enter Petra we must begin by walking down a narrow chasm, known as the Siq, surrounded by high cliffs on either side. Unveiled at the end of the Siq is El Khazneh, the Treasury. This is just the first breathtaking sight of a remarkable day. Continuing to the centre of the city, we pass the houses and tombs of the rich citizens and the remarkable scale of the site begins to unveil itself.  A optional walk can then be done up 850 steps to El Deir, the monastery, with its superb facade topped by a huge urn. Comfortable hotel - Petra
  • Day 4: Visit Little Petra; on to Wadi Rum; sunset jeep safari
    Explore Little Petra with its well preserved ruins which are hidden away in the mountains, before continuing to the spectacular Wadi Rum desert. This is where Lawrence of Arabia and Prince Faisal assembled the Arab tribes for the attack on Aqaba in the First World War, and also where sections of many famous films have been shot including 'Lawrence of Arabia, 'Star Wars' and 'The Martian' were shot. Its Mars like landscape is truly breathtaking.  We take a four-wheel drive safari throughout the area stopping at a an outcrop of rocks for sunset before returning to our Exodus permanent tented camp for a star filled night. Permanent Bedouin camp
  • Day 5: Travel to the Dead Sea via Al Karak Castle
    Today we head back up North to the amazing Dead Sea for a float and relaxing evening.  On the way we stop at Al Karak (or Kerak)  Castle for a guided tour of this imposing Crusader stronghold.  This is a place of legend in the battles between the Crusaders and the Islamic armies of Saladin (Salah-ad-Din).  A guided tour through the well preserved ruins opens up another aspect of the history of Jordan.  We continue on to the Dead Sea in time for float in its incredible saline waters and to watch the sunset over Israel on the opposite bank. 5-Star hotel
  • Day 6: Visit Jericho and Dead Sea Scrolls caves; on to Jerusalem
    After breakfast we take a short drive to the Allenby Bridge for the crossing to the West Bank.  Your tour leader will explain in detail what happens at the border and how the crossing works.  It is sadly time to say farewell to the Jordanian Leader and driver.  On arrival on the West Bank the leader who will accompany the group for the rest of the trip will be waiting.  First stop is Jericho in Palestine,  claimed to be the oldest city in the world, it is rich with Biblical associations.  We take a 2km (1 mile) cable ride to the Greek Orthodox Monastery of Temptation with wonderful views of the Judaean Desert below.  The monastery dates back to the 12th century and is supposedly built around the grotto where the Devil appeared to tempt Jesus.  From Jericho we head to Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found by a Bedouin Shepherd boy. Although the caves cannot be entered there is a centre where a short film is viewed and then a trail takes us through the cliffs where the various caves are located.  After this visit we continue on to Jerusalem. 3-Star hotel in Jerusalem
  • Day 7: Jerusalem sightseeing tour
    Today we step back in history with a guided walking tour of the old city of Jerusalem.  This includes the Temple Mount, Dome of the Rock, the Wailing Wall and the Church of the Sepulchre. The city is perfect to explore on foot as it is compact and there are plenty of sites to see and places to sit and rest. Jerusalem's history stretches back more than 3,000 years  and a guided tour of this labyrinthine is sure to be on the top of the list of memorable experiences of this trip. 3-Star hotel in Jerusalem
  • Day 8: Free day to explore Jerusalem
    Today is free for personal exploration of Jerusalem.   The leader will provide suggestions for more places to visit and information on how to get to each one.  You may want to return to the old city and take a leisurely stroll through the streets or head to the Mount of Olives, best known as the scene of Christ's agony and the Garden of Gethsemane.  Another option is the Yad Vashem or Holocost museum and memorial. 3-Star hotel in Jerusalem
  • Day 9: Travel into Palestine for Bethlehem sightseeing. Visit Herodion Castle.
    Today we have a local guide in Bethlehem who will reveal its Biblical traditions.  Perched on a hill at the edge of the Judaean Desert it was the childhood home of David and the birth place of Jesus. It has been a major site of pilgrimage since the construction of the Church of the Nativity in the 4th Century AD.  It is located on the spot which is generally believed to be the likeliest site of the nativity.  It is also one of the world's oldest churches. The tour will include Manger Square, St Catherine's Church and the Milk Grotto. We'll leave Bethlehem and drive to Herodion Castle. Herod the Great built this monumental fortress and palace on the highest hill in the Judean desert, 15km  south of Jerusalem. Herod was buried in the site which bore his name. The site was later a rebel stronghold and hiding place during the great revolts against the Romans. It is one of the most fascinating sites in the Holy Land.  Return to Jerusalem. 3-Star hotel in Jerusalem
  • Day 10: To Tel Aviv via Haifa and Old Jaffa
    After breakfast we head to the north of Israel to the city of  Haifa on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, in the south-west corner of the Galilee.  The city has a fascinating history and we'll visit Mount Carmel, the Bahaai gardens, Stella Mares, Elijah Caves and the German Colony of Haifa. Later we'll continue to Old Jaffa, where according to the Bible a settlement was founded by Noah's son Japheth in the wake of the great flood.  Remains dating back to 2000 BC found here have established Jaffa as one of the world's oldest ports.  Finally, we end the trip in Tel Aviv, the modern face of the Jewish state.  This Mediterranean resort has a long sandy beach and palm-filled avenues lined with elegant buildings in the Bauhaus style.  Tonight there are plenty of great restaurants where the group can head for dinner to share the wonderful memories this trip has created. 3-Star hotel in Tel Aviv

Food
All breakfasts are included and two dinners at the Wadi Rum camp and the Dead Sea resort in Jordan.Whilst staying in hotels we usually eat in local restaurants and the leader can arrange group bookings if people want to dine together. Mezze (Arabic) or salatim (Hebrew) style meals are very popular as they provide a range of small shared dishes to try along with a main of BBQ chicken/meats or a vegetarian dish. These allow fast service with a variety of good quality food for the group. In Jordan meals usually cost around 10-15 JOD ( GBP £11-17, USD $14-21, CAN $18-28). Palestine and Israel can be more expensive so it is advisable to allow around 60 - 80 Shekel per person ( GBP £14-19, USD $17-23, CAN $22- 30). If you are vegetarian, please note that main meals are limited in choice; however, mezze is almost always available in restaurants and is a good, filling choice. There is also a good choice of seafood available at the Red Sea and in Tel Aviv. While camping in Wadi Rum we enjoy a wonderful traditional meal called Zarb which is cooked underground. This consists of rice with a selection including chicken, lamb and vegetables. Vegetables will be cooked separate to the meat for vegetarians.
