One of the highlights of any trip to Jordan is Petra, an ancient city carved into the rock over 2,000 years ago. As you make your way through the narrow, winding canyon, known as the Siq, you'll be awed by the towering sandstone cliffs that surround you.

Visitors can experience Bedouin hospitality, enjoy traditional food and music and immerse themselves in a unique way of life that has been passed down for generations.



The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is another highlight of any Jordan tour, offering visitors the chance to float effortlessly on the water due to its high salt concentration.
