Day 1: Arrival Queen Alia Airport — Madaba

Meals: Breakfast

Arrival at Amman Queen Alia International airport. After a quick and easy procedure you go through customs, through the luggage area into the arrival hall. Note that the visa is at your own costs (40 JD/57 USD per person). Your driver will wait for you in the arrival hall, also holding a name sign and he will transfer you to your hotel in Madaba for overnight.

Day 2-4: Madaba

Meals: Breakfast

At approximate 07.30 am our car representative will meet you at the lobby of your hotel to give you the rental car on day 2. After a small procedure you can start your day.

There are several sites around Madaba you could visit. You could enjoy a city tour of Madaba, with visits to the Madaba Museum, Archaeological Park, St George Church and Apostles Church. Mt. Nebo, Bethany and the Ma’In Hot Springs are close by as well.

If you like to visit Amman, we recommend to park the car in Amman and take taxi’s to the sites around as it can be quite hectic to drive here yourself.

You could also choose to do a day tour of the North, visiting Um Qais, Ajlun Castle and Jerash.

Or if you are more into seeing castles you could go to the Eastern desert of Jordan and do a day of exploring the beautiful Desert Castles.

If you are looking for more adventure you could go to Wadi Mujib for a canyon hike through waterfalls and rivers. The self-guided Siq Trail takes around 2-3 hours.

Having a rental car means you are free to choose which sites you prefer to visit. Let us know your preferences and we can suggest a more detailed day by day program for you. Of course you could still choose to do something else instead.

You will have 3 nights in Madaba so make the most of it!

Day 5: Madaba – Mt. Nebo – Karak – Petra

Meals: Breakfast

Today you will travel to the South, you are expected to check in today at your hotel in Petra.

We recommend following the King’s Highway. It is a long road but absolutely stunning. On your way you can make stops at Mukawir, Karak Castle, Dana Nature Reserve, Shobak Castle and/or Little Petra. Overnight at your hotel in Petra

Day 6: Petra

Meals: Breakfast

Full day to explore one of the seven world wonders. A private English-speaking guide from the Visitor Center for the 2-3 hours city tour would be: 50 JOD (total, not per person). It is easy to arrange this yourself at the Visitor Center.

After your visit to the Siq, Treasury, Street of Facades, Theatre and Colonnaded Street you still have time to see: the Monastery or the High Place of Sacrifice. It is a lot of climbing, but worth the views! Overnight at your hotel in Petra.

Day 7: Petra—Wadi Rum

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

After breakfast drive to Wadi Rum Visitors Centre. Before starting with the jeep tour you could decide to enjoy an hour camel ride from Wadi Rum Village to Lawrence’s Spring. After start with a half day jeep tour including a freshly prepared barbeque lunch. A jeep tour is the best way to discover lots of sites in Wadi Rum. The jeep will stop at each site giving you time to walk/scramble around and maybe even climb up on some of the beautiful natural formed bridges in Wadi Rum. Dinner and overnight at a campsite in Wadi Rum.

Day 8: Wadi Rum—Aqaba

Meals: Breakfast

In the morning you drive from Wadi Rum to Aqaba and the Red Sea. Today you have a day of relaxing on the beach, optional you can do some snorkeling, scuba diving or one of the many other available water sports. Or enjoy a snorkeling cruise!

Day 9: Aqaba – Dead Sea—Madaba

Meals: Breakfast

nAfter breakfast you’ll drive via the stunning Wadi Araba desert to the Dead Sea, lowest point on the earth’s surface. You can access the Dead Sea via a hotel, or the local Amman Beach.

Late afternoon continue to your hotel in Madaba for overnight.
