- Whilst in Wadi Rum the service is full board. The 3 nights spent in hotels is on a Bed and Breakfast basis. You will be required to buy 2 lunches on days 2 and 7 and dinners on day 1 (depending on flight arrival time), 6 and 7. Allow about GBP70 (USD115) to cover these meals. We usually eat in local restaurants to allow maximum flexibility of choice, and, for those who wish, to try a 'mezze' style meal. If you are vegetarian, please note that main meals are limited in choice, however, mezze is almost always available in restaurants and is a good, filling choice for vegetarians. 'Mezze' allows fast service and offers a variety of good quality dishes for the group to share and usually costs JOD10-15 pp. Two litres of drinking water per day are provided free of charge whilst in Wadi Rum.

A fascinating day visiting Petra, one of the world's foremost ancient sites; to Amman.
This morning the excitement mounts as we set of to explore the ancient city of Petra. As a UNESCO World Heritage site and famed for its astonishing scale, this day is bound to be a highlight for many. Following in the footsteps of Burckhardt down the narrow siq, you finally get your first tantalising glimpse of El Khazneh - the Treasury - revealed in all its splendour as you come out into the open. The work involved in carving this immense faï¿½ade out of solid rock defies belief. You have a full day to explore the site and see its many other splendours. In the centre of the city you will pass the houses and tombs of the more affluent citizens and also a Roman amphitheatre, preserved in remarkable condition. Beyond the city centre is El Deir, the Monastery. Its superb faï¿½ade is carved into the rock and topped by a huge urn. After our visit we transfer back to Amman.
