There’s an optional tour of Petra, with its famous Treasury Building, but another included highlight is Little Petra. Although a smaller site, this less-visited treasure is big on features with impressive frescoes, temples, tombs and cisterns carved out of rock.

More about Israel

More about Jordan

The one thing you probably know about Jordan is its famous ancient city of Petra. The archaeological site and the magnificent Treasury building is something you won't want to miss, but here are three other places in Jordan that our travellers rave about:
  1. On the highest hill in Amman you'll find the Citadel. The hill was a fortress for thousands of year and archaeologists have found artefacts from the Bronze Age. Two of the most impressive remains are the Temple of Hercules and the Ummayad Palace.
  2. Wadi Rum is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in southern Jordan. The 74,000-hectare property is a rich and varied desert landscape of narrow gorges, dramatic cliffs, 20,000 rock carvings and a strong history of human occupation that dates back 12,000 years.
  3. The Dead Sea is actually a lake that's bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west. The 'sea' sits 400 metres below sea level and the water is nearly 10 times more salty than most oceans. Aptly named because nothing can live in the water, that doesn't put off humans and bathing is must. The high salt levels make floating a breeze and the mineral-rich mud is believed to have therapeutic qualities that will make your skin shine!
Offering the perfect balance of included activities and free time, this fascinating tour is escorted by specialist guides and packs a lot into 13 days. Starting in Tel Aviv and ending in Amman, it's your chance to follow in the footsteps of the Romans, Byzantines and Crusaders and feel like Indiana Jones. Plus, international flights are included with this exciting deal!
