About this trip

Visiting Jordan is the kind of trip you plan around the sights - and there's no shortage of sights and return talking about the people! Petra – an entire city carved from reddish sandstone cliffs – is one of the most awe-inspiring archaeological sites in the world. Jersash, Madaba and Nebo – are just a few of the sights that have biblical significance. The Dead Sea and the famous SIQ are archaeological phenomenon that few have been lucky enough to experience.

Jordan’s sandstone temples, sprawling desert terrain, and inspiring history is nothing short of captivating. On this journey, find yourself immersed in a rich culture that stems from remarkable ancient empires and influential religions. Get to know the country’s people and heritage by exploring the capital city of Amman, and then discover the well-preserved Roman ruins of Jerash. Spend time in Petra exploring its magnificent sights, like the intricate Al-Khazneh temple (The Treasury) for the ultimate photo op and round out this incredible trip with a visit to Jesus’ baptism site and day of relaxation at the Dead Sea.

We will explore these photographers dream locales by air-conditioned coach with nationally certified guides and drivers. We have included many of the meals for your convenience and ease of schedule (not too many Chipolte’s in the area) and through ‘The Jordan Pass’ your Travel Visa and most of the entrance fees are covered. 

Jordan's desert landscape and strangely familiar names evoke romantic images in the West; here, you can literally walk in the footsteps of Jesus or ride a horse in the desert like Lawrence of Arabia (or Indiana Jones, if you prefer). However, Jordan's most lasting impression always seems to be its warm, welcoming people – come meet the Jordanians and discover their country!

Itinerary

Fri, Mar 25
Arrive Amman

We arrive into Amman and are greeted at the airport by our local guide and driver. (If you are adding this on to the Epic Egypt Escape we will be setting up the flight from Cairo to Amman for you – details soon). 

Depending upon the flight arrivals and time permitting, we will venture out for a city tour of Amman. Often referred to as the “White City” because of the white stone used to build houses, Amman offers a contrast between oriental and cosmopolitan. The tour will take you to the museums, the Citadel, the amphitheater, the souks and the modern part of town. We will start to immerse yourself in the culture and learn of the area’s history from our private nationally certified guide. 

If time is tight, we will do our best to add some Amman sites on the last day.

Next, we check into our 4 Star hotel. 

Overnight: Geneva hotel (or similar)

We had a great time! The lodging (Glamping) was very unique and fun, I enjoyed the people, and the activities were wonderful. Tricia did a fantastic job of putting this together and making sure that everyone's needs were met. Thanks!

This was an absolutely amazing, once in a lifetime trip!! Well organized and lead by Tricia and 2 wonderful Egyptian tour guides, this trip was packed full of history, fun and adventure! If Egypt has been on your bucket list, I strongly encourage you to pack your bags, lather on the sun screen and join the camel train! Our team was well cared for, safe at all times and with Covid precautions maintained. I am so grateful for my Egyptian experience with Alt Esc and will forever cherish the memories!

Egypt welcomed us with open arms. The people were so warm and eager to see us and talk with us. Our guides were the perfect ambassadors to this marvelous country. They called us their goddess and I truly felt like a goddess. The food was plentiful and delicious. The itinerary was full and so well planned. We experienced "Egypt" in the sites, in the sounds, and all of the flavors. Tricia had this trip organized, kept our spirits and excitement at a "12" . Each day brought a new surprise or a special activity. Thank you for offering this fabulous trip. My heart grew by 17 new sisters in the travel family.

Fascinating! That word best describes Egypt for me. Our May Epic Egypt Escape was just wonderful, great group of travelers, we experienced so much of the culture and people and saw so many amazing sights. There were so many highlights, I just can't name them all, but the sunrise hot air balloon ride and Abu Simbel have to be at the top of my list. Tricia did a wonderful job setting up, planning and organizing this trip. Fascinating trip and I highly recommend Egypt, Tricia and Alt Esc for your next travel adventure.
