About this trip

Bucket List Travel is excited to help you take Jordan off your bucket list! 


This is a budget-friendly four-day trip to Jordan, designed to introduce you to this amazing country's highlights.: Amman, Madaba, Mount Nebo, Jerash, Dead Sea, Petra, and Wadi Rum.

Trip Highlights

Guided tours include transportation and entry fees to all these sites:

  

Madaba, The City of Mosaics

Visit Madaba – best known for its spectacular Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics. The city is home to the famous sixth century mosaic map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land, which has two million pieces of colored stone.

Mount Nebo, Pilgrimage Site for Early Christians

Early Christians from Jerusalem made pilgrimage to Mount Nebo, where a small church was built in the fourth century to commemorate Moses’ life. Today the basilica houses a stunning collection of Byzantine mosaics.

Overnight in Amman at Nairoukh Palace (3*) 


  

Full Day Tour of Amman and Jerash

Tour the Jordanian capital of Amman, referred to in the Bible as the Ammonite Kingdom. Amman is a fascinating city of contrasts, a unique blend of old and new, located between the desert and the fertile Jordan Valley.

The ancient city of Jersash boasts an unbroken chain of human occupation dating back more than 6500 years. The city’s golden age came during Roman rule, and is generally acknowledged to be one of the best preserved Roman provincial towns in the world.

Dead Sea

We’ll visit the Dead Sea where the warm, soothing, super salty water – 10 times saltier than sea water - is rich in chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium and bromine.

Dinner and overnight at the Dead Sea at Grand East Hotel (4 stars)


  

Petra, One of the New 7 Wonders of the World

The Rose City of Petra is a historical and archaeological city, described by UNESCO as “one of the most precious cultural properties of man’s cultural heritage.” It flourished in the first century AD, when its famous Al-Khazneh (Treasury) was constructed. We’ll enter the city through the Siq, a dark narrow gorge flanked on both sides by soaring cliffs. The Siq leads to the massive façade of the Treasury, carved out of the sheer, dusky pink rock-face and dwarfing everything around it.

Dinner and overnight in Petra at Edom Hotel (3*) 


  

Wadi Rum, the Valley of Light

Wadi Rum is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan. It has been inhabited by many human cultures since prehistoric times, with many cultures leaving their mark in the form of rock paintings and temples. Khaz'ali Canyon in Wadi Rum is the site of petroglyphs etched into the cave walls depicting humans and antelopes dating back to the 8th century BCE. The village of Wadi Rum itself consists of several hundred Bedouin inhabitants with their goat-hair tents and concrete houses. Much of the 1962 movie Lawrence of Arabia was shot in Wadi Rum.

We had a wonderful trip! I love that Annie got to go with us and Tim is an incredible guide and we couldn’t ask for anyone better! All of the lodging was great but mziki is my favorite! I added on hot air balloon, farewell dinner and Victoria falls and they were all amazing! Thank you Annie and Tim

Jordan has been at the top of my destination list since 2018. I finally made it! My heart was happy in Jordan. I had the opportunity to see and do everything on my wish list. Mt. Nebo, Jordan River, floating in the Dead Sea, private guide through Petra, exploring Wadi Rum and feeding camels. I can’t wait to go back and spend more time in Wadi Rum. Thank you Annie and Yasser for making my long awaited dreams come true!

I just got back from the trip of a lifetime. Annie and her contacts in South Africa set up an itinerary to make sure you experience different facets of the country in the time you spend there but best of all they make you feel welcome and make sure you see the animals! The accommodations were great and the people we met were great. This vacation exceeded all my expectations and I may never top this trip!!

If you are thinking of going to Egypt, I highly recommend Bucket List Travel. My husband and I have just completed a private tour. We were their first booking since the pandemic started, and we truly loved the experience. Annie arranged a great itinerary tailored to our preferences,, and Yasser, our guide couldn’t have been better. He is a scholar in Egyptology who is passionate about his country, its history, culture, architecture, food and all things Egypt. He is also fun to be with and bends over backwards to give his guests the best experience possible. We normally travel independently, but are so glad we decided to see Egypt this way. We would not have gotten half as much out of the trip without the background and understanding provided by Yasser. I would recommend using Bucket List Travel without hesitation.

I just returned from a once in a lifetime trip to Cairo organized by Bucket List Travel. Annie took care of every detail of planning, and it really showed when I got off the plane and was taken care of from start to finish with the greatest care. Our guide Yasser was kind, professional, knowledgeable, and funny! He went above and beyond to ensure every need was met and we got the most out of each day in Egypt. I always felt safe and loved experiencing local life and culture. I plan to grab my friends and book again with Bucket List Travel!
