Enjoy a 2-hour tour of this awe-inspiring Nabatean city and UNESCO World Heritage site with a local guide. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, Petra was carved into a sandstone gorge more than 2,000 years ago to dominate the trading routes of ancient Arabia and is rightly regarded as the jewel in the crown of Jordan’s historic sites. Walk along the narrow “Siq”, the high-walled fissure in the rocks that winds into the heart of the city. Then, stop in your tracks at your first breathtaking glimpse of the Treasury, known locally as “El-Khazneh” – Petra’s stellar sight. Wonder at its intricate façade and hear how movies such as Indiana Jones, the Transformers, and the Last Crusade were filmed here. Take photos of this glorious monument and then continue your tour. See Petra’s ornate tombs cut into the rock face, and admire the stunning theater that once sat 3,000 spectators. As you walk, visit the Byzantine church and hear stories as well as facts about the ingenious Nabateans who chose, carved out, and then made this place their home so long ago. Free time to explore and walk up the Monastery or the High Place of Sacrifice if time permits. After your walking tour and free time for lunch at your own expense, drive to Wadi Rum. Dinner and overnight in Wadi Rum Camp.
Day 3: Wadi Rum – Aqaba (B, D) 90 KM
After breakfast, proceed to the spectacular desert wilderness of Wadi Rum. Sometimes known as the Valley of the Moon for its lunar-like landscapes, this protected region of mountains, dunes, and canyons was where T.E. Lawrence, known as “Lawrence of Arabia” fought alongside the Bedouin locals in World War I. The locals have named many of the sites in Wadi Rum after Lawrence and numerous scenes from the iconic movie, Lawrence of Arabia, were filmed on location here. Besides, the recent well-known movie The Martian was also filmed by Hollywood superstar Matt Damon. Enjoy an exhilarating 2-hour trip by 4×4 local jeep through this majestic place to immerse yourself in its serene beauty and ever-changing colors. Rumble along desert valleys, through narrow gorges, past red dunes and mountains, and stop to take photos along the way. Finish your day by relaxing on your journey to Aqaba.
