Jordan Family - Wadi Rum, Petra and the Dead Sea
If you would like to book additional nights before or after your holiday please contact the office.
Most of our Jordan itineraries are now tailored to easyJet flight schedules. And, our holiday extensions in Jordan also work with these flights. For many of our holidays, a 2-night extension in Aqaba works well, allowing you to relax and enjoy the watersports and beaches of this laid-back, Red Sea resort. As an extension to our Dana to Petra trek, there is the option to spend some time with the Bedouin in Wadi Rum, or to do some canyoning. As an extension to the Dead 2 Red mountain bike holiday we offer the option of a visit to the Roman city of Jerash. Whilst, our Family Jordan holiday can also be extended with a short visit to this ancient Roman site. Since extensions may affect your international flight schedule you should consider booking these at the same time as your main holiday. We can assist with any arrangements such as extra hotel nights, transfers or internal flights that you may require. All extensions can be reserved during the online booking process.

Jerash is one of the best preserved Roman cities in all of the Middle East and only an hour north of Amman. This extension works for those of our holidays that end with a hotel night in Madaba and which use Royal Jordanian flights. Within the remaining city walls archaeologists have found ruins of settlements dating back to the Neolithic age, indicating human occupation for more than 6500 years. Jerash is most famous for its Triumphal Arch, the Hippodrome, baths, and the wide street of columns leading to the Temple of Artemis. We can also opt to see the Chariot Show in the Hippodrome with fully armed legionaries, gladiators and of course chariot racing! An additional Madaba hotel night and a transfer to Amman Airport is included.
Guided day tour of Jerash
Our private local expert city guide meets us at the hotel after breakfast and we transfer to Jerash. We have a full day exploring and learning about the main sites here of the ancient city. If you wish to opt for the Chariot Show it takes place every day except Tuesdays. From Wednesday to Monday there are 2 shows daily at 11am and 2 pm. On Friday, there is only one show at 10 am. The show lasts about 45 minutes, and guests are required to be there 15 minutes in advance. Please contact the office if you are a family or group of 3 people or more, as discounts do apply.
