Float in the Dead Sea, and bask in the monumental glory of the ancient, rock-carved city of Petra, as you journey through the signature sites of the Arab kingdom of Jordan.

Arriving to Amman, capital of Jordan, you'll head south to Petra, site of the ancient UNESCO World Heritage-listed complex that's carved into solid rock. First, explore Little Petra outside the main city, convergence point of ancient caravan routes from Egypt and across the Mediterranean. With your private guide, explore the main city of Petra, and marvel at the incredible craftsmanship required to carve such a monumental city into the face of a mountain, over 2,000 years ago. Continue with your guide to explore Wadi Rum, a spectacular pink-tinged mountain jutting out of the Jordanian desert. Discover Madaba, and Mount Nebo on your way to the Dead Sea, offering views of the Jordan Valley below. Float in the hyper-salinated waters of the Dead Sea for some peaceful contemplation as your journey through Jordan comes to a close, offering time to reflect on this new country you've since come to revere. ...

NOTE: Travel in Jordan often involves early-morning starts, designed to avoid crowds and the hottest midday hours. It can be hot, especially in June, July and August, but there is virtually no humidity and evening temperatures cool off dramatically. Jordan is a moderate secular state, well used to hosting hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. While you will want to avoid revealing clothing, loose shorts and short-sleeved shirts are fine for any gender.

Day 2: Amman - Petra

Sit back and relax on your 3 hour transfer from Amman to Petra.

The Siq Al-Barid (Little Petra) is located to the north of Petra, only a 10 minute drive away. A classical temple stands guard outside the miniature siq which would appear to have been an important suburb of the city of Petra, situated at the point where several ancient caravan routes met, linking Wadi Araba with Gaza, Egypt and the Mediterranean coast. The narrow file, only some 350 m long, is crammed with tombs, temples, triclinia, houses, water channels and cisterns. The surrounding area is picturesque and fun to explore.

Day 3: Petra

Certified private English speaking guide for daily tours outside of Amman.

Petra is the treasure of the ancient world, and the rock-carved rose-red city is full of mysterious charm. Indeed, it was "designed to strike wonder into all who entered it". Petra is the legacy of the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled in southern Jordan more than 2,000 years ago. Admired then for its refined culture, massive architecture and ingenious complex of dams and water channels, this remarkable city of grand buildings carved into massive cliffs evokes wonder to this day. After lunch, you will be able to walk the grounds of Petra on your own.

Day 4: Petra

Certified private English speaking guide for daily tours outside of Amman.

Settle in for a scenic drive through the desert from Petra to Wadi Rum. The drive takes approximately 1.5-2 hours. 

Wadi Rum has a timeless feel to it – a stupendous open space, virtually untouched by humanity and its destructive forces. Here, it is the weather and winds that have carved the imposing, towering skyscrapers, so elegantly described by T.E. Lawrence as vast, echoing and God-like. Hikers can enjoy the tranquility of the boundless empty spaces and explore the canyons and water holes to discover 4000-year-old rock drawings and the many other spectacular treasures this vast wilderness holds in store. Head into the desert today with your Bedouin driver for a 2-hour jeep tour through the monolithic rockscape, visiting Lawrence Spring and the Khazali sites. Lunch is included at the Rose Sand Camp. Return to Petra in the late afternoon.

Day 5: Petra - Dead Sea

After breakfast, depart for the Dead Sea. On the way, embark on a tour of Madaba, best known for its spectacular Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics, Madaba is home to the famous 6th century Mosaic Map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. Close to the Church of the Virgin is the Madaba Institute For Mosaic Art and Restoration, which operates under the patronage of the Ministry of Tourism. The only project of its kind in the Middle East, the Institute trains artisans in the art of making repairing and restoring mosaics.  Continue to visit Mount Nebo, the mountaintop memorial of Moses with captivating views of the Jordan Valley, Dead Sea and The River Jordan. A small Byzantine church was built there by early Christians, which has been expanded into a vast complex. During his visit to Jordan in 2001, the Late Pope John Paul II held a sermon here that was attended by some 20,000 faithful. Arrive at the Dead Sea.

Accommodation: Kempinski Ishtar

Highly commended by the international hospitality industry, the Kempinski Ishtar, located at the Dead Sea, is one of a kind. With 117 rooms and suites with balconies, terraces or verandas, the hotel’s allure is not simply in its proximity to the Dead Sea. It is the chic design and architecture of the property and rooms that lends flair to a vacation. The restaurants, host to international fusions and trendy bar settings, are exciting and full of surprises. With endless views of the sea and the 9 swimming pools on the hotel grounds, some appearing to overflow into the Dead Sea, the hotel is unforgettable.

Start the day with a city tour of Amman. Amman is the capital of Jordan which is a fascinating city of contrasts – a unique blend of old and new, ideally situated on a hilly area between the desert and the fertile Jordan Valley. The visit will include the fascinating Roman Theater and Nymphaeum that reflect the historic legacy of the city, and the enchanting Citadel which has stood since the ancient times of the Ammonites. Your touring will also include visits to both the Archeological and Folklore museums. If it's shopping you're after, then the pedestrian Wakalat shopping district offers a wide selection of international brand names to choose from. For a more exotic and traditional experience you can visit the old-downtown, also known as the ''Souq'', and take in the traditional sights and smells of the spice market, and shop for authentic souvenirs.

Upon departure, you will be met by a representative at the airport’s departure hall, then head to the counter to get your boarding pass and the passport control to receive your exit stamp.

  • Lori M — June 19, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    I had an amazing opportunity to travel for the first time with my little brother on a trip to Egypt. I was mostly booking through an agency because my brother is a spoiled traveller. In hindsight, I highly recommend you booking through an agency if you go. I used Kensington Tours and could not have been happier. They prepared me for what to expect and were very organized throughout the entire trip. We had a gracious and kind host the entire time who arranged everything. I never even checked into a hotel by myself. I felt so spoiled. If you go, ask to have Osama Soliman. We also had the most amazing driver I have ever witnessed and could not have been more thankful, but it is not a place to rent a car! He was always on time, right where we needed him with full AC, WiFi, a clean car and water! You need Mostafa Khalil as your driver - I promise you that! We had 3 guides depending on where we were and what we were doing, but all of them had been doing tours in English for many years and they were all amazing! We had Hala Kamal - she was our Egyptian mother and tour guide in Cairo...we would not have traded the conversations we had with her for anything. She was welcoming and thoughtful. She gave us as much or as little info we wanted. Also, in Cairo, we had not enough time spent with Mahmoud Ramadan. He was very informative and passionate about his knowledge. In Luxor, our guide was Osama Raslan and I would highly recommend his 23 years of experience as a guide. You are all missing a really amazing experience in Egypt if you don't go...my photos will not do it justice. I am in awe and hope to get a chance to go back again!

  • Susan P — July 08, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    The tour, guides, security, driver, accommodations were remarkable in all facets. Specifically, I would like to point out our guide in Cairo/Giza - Hela and our guide in Luxor - Muhammad. There is not enough space here to list all the positives; it lived up to our expectations of a Trip of a Lifetime.

  • Derick B — April 22, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    Seamless professional knowledgeable and trusted throughout. Everything was anticipated and handled with warmth and competence. Beginning to end, not a false step. Superb!

  • Ronald O — April 13, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    My son and I were extremely pleased with the efficiency and organization of our Kensington tour to Egypt. The accommodations, airport and tour facilitators, drivers, hotel and ship personnel, and knowledgeable tour guides made for an unforgettable experience.

  • Paulette L — February 02, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    We knew the accommodations would be superb; however, was not expecting the guides to be so well spoken, accommodating, friendly, and above all so educated and knowledgeable in every aspect. They showed a high degree of interest in us and answered every question with enthusiasm and real desire to relate their history and current Egypt. Kudos especially to Ishmiel Gamea. Ermeen Mostafa El-Sissy also showed in-depth knowledge and appreciated our interests.

  • Sharon P — February 02, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    We have already recommended Kensington Tours to friends who are interested in travelling to Egypt after hearing about our experience. Every portion of our trip was handled in a professional, friendly manner. We are so pleased that we had this opportunity to visit Egypt.

    Our guides were one of the most exceptional parts of our trip. Nermeen in Cairo and Ismiel from Aswan to Luxor were outstanding in their knowledge, their professionalism, and their sense of humor, answering every question we posed. They shared their love of their country and it’s ancient history, as well as its culture and present-day issues. Bill and I would not hesitate to recommend Kensington Tours to our friends, thanks to our guides and every other aspect of our experience. Thank you for our “trip of a lifetime”!

  • Sophia V. — November 23, 2018 — Egypt & Middle East

    I wouldn't have done Egypt any other way! The planning was so easy, Tamara listened to our needs and wants. We were absolutely blown away with our guides, Iman and Mohamed. Iman was so incredibly passionate, she truly brought Egypt alive. Mohamed was highly knowledgeable, but also listened to us and anticipated our needs ahead of time. Kensington really nailed it, and I could not be happier with our trip.

  • Diana B. — December 26, 2018 — Egypt & Middle East

    Our guides and drivers were extremely nice, very knowledgeable and had excellent manners. Nermeen and Ahmad went above and beyond their duties, they stop at our request at places to buy local food and coffee for us along the way. They connected with us in a personal level and understood what we were interested in.

  • James B. — January 22, 2018 — Egypt & Middle East

    Micha Weiser was an exceptional tour guide! He adjusted the schedule to make our trip more enjoyable.

  • Biggs P. — December 03, 2018 — Egypt & Middle East
