A land of ancient cities, friendly people and landscapes that are out of this world! Evening arrival with check-in.

  • Accommodation 3 * Toledo Amman Hotel
  • MEALS No meals included

Once the capital of the Hashemite Kingdom, Amman is now a contemporary and busy energetic city. Recently known as the ‘White City’ due to the white stone used, today our guided tour explores the incredible 1900 year old Roman Amphitheatre, the Folklore & Archaeological Museum, Jordan Museum, and one of the world’s oldest inhabited areas standing on the highest hill in downtown Amman; the Citadel. We then move on to Al Salt City. Tightly built on a cluster of three hills, the splendid yellow sandstone buildings incorporate a variety of styles. The most beautiful is the Abu Jaber mansion with its painted fresco ceilings built between 1892 and 1906. 

  • Accommodation 3 * Toledo Amman Hotel
  • MEALS Breakfast & Dinner included

Today we take the King’s road travelling to the 'City of Mosaics'; Madaba. Famous for its beautiful mosaics in the public and private buildings, we view St. George's Orthodox Church which houses a two-million piece jigsaw of the oldest map of the Holyland depicting Jerusalem and other centres of pilgrimage. We continue on to Mt Nebo, the alleged final resting place of Moses overlooking the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea. It’s then on to Kerak (photo stop) before stopping at Shobak Castle. Built in 1115 by King Baldwin I of Jerusalem it was used to guard the road from Egypt to Damascus.

  • Accommodation 4 * Mövenpick Nabatean Castle Hotel
  • MEALS Breakfast & Dinner included

A full day at this exquisit city carved into the rose-red sandstone of the Sharah Mountains by the Nabateans. Once lost to civilisation, we can walk along the Siq, a narrow gorge that pierces through cliffs to the dramatic Treasury. Explore the Roman Theatre, the Courts, Qasr Bint Pharoaun as well the Temple of the Winged Lion. As the sun sets, it's easy to imagine caravans laden with incense, silk and spices kicking up the dust as they creep over the horizon.

  • MEALS Breakfast & Dinner included

Today takes us to Little Petra & Beidah where we can walk through the 8000 year old excavated stone ages villages as well as the ruins of settlements of the biblical Edomites and the Roman legionary fortress at Udruh.

Leaving the desert we head for the Sea; the Dead Sea. With its’ year-round sunny skies and dry air, the Dead Sea is is about 422 meters below sea level and one of the world's saltiest bodies of water. Well-known for its mineral-rich mud and waters, boasting health properties. We spend a leisurely afternoon swimming at Dead Sea Spa Hotel before continuing to Iraq Al Amir; the Hellenistic ruins of Qaser El-Abd. Consisting of an enormous palace, it is thought to been built by Hyrcanus of the powerful Tobiad family during the 2nd century AD.

On our final day we visit the Graeco-Roman city of Jerash, hidden under desert sands until its excavation 70 years ago. The result is one of the best preserved cities of its kind. Our tour features, churches, theatres, temples and colonnaded streets. We finish at the 12th Century Ajloun Castle; an exceptional example of Arab military architecture. It was built in 1184AD by Saladin in his campaign to drive the Crusades out of Jordan.

Useful Information

Visa

Your specific passport and visa requirements, and other immigration requirements are your sole responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant embassies and/or consulates of the countries in which you are planning to travel. 

Passport validity

Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Jordan.

Previous travel to Israel

Evidence of a previous visit to Israel like an Israeli entry/exit stamp in your passport does not normally cause any difficulties when entering Jordan. It is, however, for the Jordanian authorities to determine the right of entry into the country. If you have any concerns, you should contact the Consulate of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in London.

Transfer time

The transfer time between Amman Airport and the Toledo Hotel 3* is approximately 40 minutes, depending on the traffic.

Gratuities

We suggest a Group Collection to cover guides, transfer drivers, and hotel staff of minimum £30.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.

Currency

available, but taking ice in drinks is not recommended as a general rule. We recommend that you brush your teeth in bottled water.

Currency

Jordanian dinar

Cash machines are available throughout Amman and in other major towns and cities. ATMs are less widely available in rural areas, though most petrol stations on major roads offer ATMs.

Credit Card Acceptance: In hotels and some larger shops/restaurants.

Recommended Currency for Exchange: Sterling and US$ are widely accepted though exchange rates tend to favour the US$. It is worth taking some money in cash. You may be able to order Dinars from your bank although the rate will usually be lower than purchasing currency in country. 


Optional Excursions (Any excursions bookable in resort are subject to availability)

Petra by night - USD25.00 

Our tours are planned to be as fully inclusive as possible. However, from time-to-time your Solos Tour Leader or Local Guide may suggest optional tours/sightseeing in addition to the standard sightseeing planned for that city. Such options are at an additional cost (payable in local currency). If you do not wish to take part in any optional extras, you will have the option of enjoying some free time at leisure or to return to the hotel.

Dress Code

During the day when sightseeing, we recommend casual, lightweight cotton clothing, that covers the shoulders and knees (both men and women). You will find that smart casual wear is acceptable, even in the best hotels during the evening. We would recommend an umbrella or hat for protection against the sun. Comfortable shoes are a “must” for sightseeing. From time to time, your guide will advise you about observing local customs. On certain occasions it will be necessary to remove your shoes to enter temples so easily removable footwear (eg. trekking sandals) is recommended. Women are advised not to wear shorts or dresses that are too revealing as this can attract unwelcome attention in the streets of Moslem towns - loose fitting trousers or slacks are ideal. Women should also cover their head and shoulders when entering a mosque and men should wear long trousers.
