Amman ~ Dead Sea ~ Petra ~ Wadi Rum ~ Aqaba

 This tour starts and ends in Amman Jordan

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which once captivated ancient travelers, continues to enthrall a whole new generation as a modern, vibrant nation.

Images of the ancient Nabataean city of Petra, carved from the rock over a thousand years ago, have long been most people’s first impression of Jordan. 

But, while Petra is indeed one of the most stunning attractions in the Middle East, Jordan offers so much more for the modern traveler. 

A well-traveled bridge between sea and desert, east and west, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a land of mesmerizing beauty and contrasts, from the Jordan Valley, fertile, ever changing, to the remote desert canyons, immense and still. Visitors can explore splendid desert landscapes, gaze in awe at the haunting wilderness of Wadi Rum, or bathe in the restful waters of the Red Sea. 

Modern Jordan was founded by King Abdullah I after World War I. It was ruled by his grandson, the late King Hussein, for 46 years until his death in 1999, when his son, King Abdullah II, assumed the throne. Jordan has grown into a modern nation that has enjoyed a remarkable measure of peace, stability and economic growth in recent decades.

There is no mistaking the fact that Jordan is a Kingdom steeped in history and culture. 

From the moment you arrive, you get a sense of its rich heritage; all around are remnants of ancient civilizations long since passed, yet they still remain, stamped into the very fabric of this amazing Kingdom and etched into the soul of the people who live here.

Trip Highlights

Your Host - Suzanne Weller

Hi ..I’m Suzanne,

I love history in all forms; ancient, family & local. So travelling to the Middle East is my happy place. I also love slow travel & sitting in a coffee shop, reading & people watching is my kind of relaxation. I enjoy an early morning walk, a good stretch & have massages everywhere I travel. I’m also a lover of cats, cows & food… I believe we are all works in progress.

I believe people the world over want peace, safety & love. I believe the Universe will work its magic so best to embrace it. I am committed to encouraging women to travel, be brave & feel safe.
