    Gladiator show; tour Roman city of Jerash

    After breakfast we take our first steps back in time to the Roman City of Jerash.  The Hippodrome and it's history come alive with an entertaining Gladiator show, where chariots complete curcuits in a cloud of dust and Roman soldiers show off their maneuvers. At the end of the show you can even get a photo with the actors who are rigged out in traditional uniforms and armour.  In ancient times Jerash was a city of great wealth and importance.  Settled as a town during the reign of Alexander the Great it reached its zenith during the period of the Decapolis -  a group of ten great Roman cities on the eastern frontier of their empire.  Walking along the well preserved Roman roads, wandering through the market place and climbing the steps of the theatres is bound to capture the imagination of everyone in the family.  After our Roman adventure return to Amman for free time and maybe a dip in the hotel pool. 4-Star hotel

    To Petra via Mt Nebo and Madaba

    Leaving Amman pur first stop is Mt Nebo where Moses stood looking down on the promised land.  Race to the top and take a family photo on this historic spot.   Our next stop is the market town of Madaba famous for its Byzantine-era mosaics the most famous of which is the oldest map of Palestine in existence.  Crafted in 560 AD it depicts all the major Biblical sites of the Middle East from Egypt to Palestine.  A visit to a mosaic workshop reveals how these arts of work are made.  The oldest mosaic found in the world has been dated back to the 3rd Millennium BC.   Before leaving Madaba fill up your water bottle with one of the many delicious fresh local juices.  We continue our journey south through deserts and amazing canyons stopping at a high point for wonderful views,  to see some of the fossils found in the area which used to be under the sea and have a picnic lunch.   On arrival at Wadi Musa the gateway to Petra there is free time to settle into our hotel. Comfortable hotel

    Have your own Indian Jones adventure exploring Petra

    This morning we start early to avoid the heat of the day and maybe your family are too excited to sleep anyway because today is our Indian Jones adventure into the Lost city of Petra. We start our early wandering through the Siq, a natural gateway to one of the world's most spectacular landmarks.  Along the way we pass 'Djinn' blocks.   Djinn is an Arabic word meaning spirits and is the source of the English word for Genie. So maybe these monoliths can grant wishes.  Suddenly through a narrow opening in the rock we get our first glimpse of the famous Al-Khazneh or Treasury.  Featured in the 1989 blockbuster film 'Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade' the astonishing sites of Petra were brought to the attention of the world.  Since then travelling to this ancient city has been added to many people's must see list.   So pinch yourself to make sure you're not dreaming.  We continue exploring this amazing city scrambling up hills to find huge tombs and palaces.  Winding our way around the hillsides we stop for a picnic lunch before exploring the Colonnaded street and Great temple.  Heading back along the main street we re-enter the Siq leaving behind a magical city that will probably stay in your memory forever.   The rest of the afternoon and evening are free to relax. Comfortable hotel

    Wadi Rum jeep adventure; sleep in a desert camp

    Leaving the Red Sea coast it's time to head into the desert and our private Exodus camp.  Basic but beautiful we join a Bedouin family who are our hosts. There’s a small sand dune nearby which is great fun to roll down. Later in the day we bounce around the dunes in our jeeps and then scramble up some rocks to watch the sunset. This evening we can go star gazing and maybe even meet up with some of the animals that come out at night.  Our dinner is cooked the traditional Bedouin way under the ground and there's a campfire where we can sit and talk.  Camping in Wadi Rum is an experience of a lifetime. Permanent Bedouin camp
