What to Expect
  • Travel insurance is highly recommended for all travelers. At a minimum your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability. We also strongly recommend it covers cancellation as all deposits paid are non-refundable, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. Petra Nights Tours does not offer travel insurances.
  • Most nationals obtain the Jordanian Visa at Amman Airport and the land borders upon arrival. Except for arrivals through the Allenby Bridge/King Hussein Bridge where all nationals need the visa in advance. The visa fee upon arrival is 20 Jordanian Dinar per person and has to be paid in cash; an exchange booth is available. Your passport has to be valid minimum 6 month while traveling in Jordan. If you are not sure about your visa status contact us or the Jordanian embassy in your country of residence.
  • The official currency is the Jordanian Dinar (JD), which is divided into 100 piastres or 1,000 fils. Notes are in denominations of JD 50, 20, 10, 5 and 1. It is easy to change foreign currency at banks, moneychanger or better hotels, most accepted are USD, GBP and Euros. Banks are closed on Fridays and Saturdays. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are the most widely accepted credit cards. ATMs are available in larger towns and at the airport. The maximum daily withdrawal amount is around JD 500, depending on your particular card. Check with your bank for information on ATM international fees. We recommend that you carry some cash in case ATMs can not be accessed, are broken down or run out of cash.
  • It is necessary to mention that Jordan is not a cheap destination. But as every traveller is different, please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, food and shopping. The costs for lunch and dinner vary. If you are happy with a sandwich or a shawarma at local restaurant or take away, this is already available for 3-4 USD per person (without drinks), but better restaurants charge 16-20 USD per meal/per person (no drinks), same at 4 star hotels for main buffet 20-30 USD per meal/per person. A large bottle of water in the local market is 70 Cent, a soft drink (0.30l) is 40 Cent, in tourist areas the rates are higher.
  • Jordan is characterized by a Mediterranean climate and the best travel time is spring and autumn, March until May, September until November. Summer is hot and sunny, especially in Aqaba and at the Dead Sea. These two areas are in turn ideal for a winter break due to the mild temperatures (16-22 °C) in this season. In the rest of the country winter weather can be cool, with rain and occasional snow. Jordan is a very sunny country with average daily sunshine hours ranging from six to seven in winter and twelve to thirteen in summer. Although summer temperatures are high, the nights are rather cool.
  • The general check in time in Jordan is 15:00, the check out time is 12:00 noon. We can try for an earlier check in or later check out but this cannot be guaranteed. It is on sole discretion of the hotel, its policies and availability of rooms.

8.00 AMPick up & tour

In the early morning, we will drive to the World Heritage Site, the Jordan valley and visit Bethany, the Baptism Site of Jesus Christ. Then, we will stop by Elijah’s Hill, where Prophet Elijah ascended to heaven. Afterwards, we will proceed to Mount Nebo, where Prophet Moses gazed at the Promised Land before he died. We will visit the old monastery, overlooking the Jordan Valley, Dead Sea, and parts of the Holy Land. Our next stop will be Madaba and head to St. George Church to view the famous mosaic 6th-century map of Palestine. Then, we will Continue to Machaerus, the hilltop stronghold of Herod the Great, King of Judea. His son Herod Antipas who inherited the fortress, ordered the beheading of John the Baptist after Salome’s fateful dance. We will walk for about 30 minutes to reach the top of the hill. Finally, you will be transferred to your hotel or residence in Amman.
