    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 40 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.
    • Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio and Hepatitis A vaccinations are highly recommended. For more detailed medical information and necessary vaccinations before departure please consult your doctor. We recommend that you carry a first aid kit as well as any personal medical requirements; and you have to be in good physical health to tour Jordan. The health care system in Jordan is quite advanced, although services remain concentrated in Amman. General advice is to avoid tap water and use instead bottled water.
    Itinerary

    Day 1Allenby Bridge - Masada - Qumran - Jerusalem Hotel

    On day 1, we will meet you at Allenby Bridge and then, drive to Masada. We will climb (by cable-car) the famous cliff-fortress of Masada, where Herod the Great built a magnificent palace in the middle of the desert. Masada was used as a fortress by the Jewish “Zealots,” who fought, few against many, against the pagan Roman Empire. Their heroic struggle became a symbol for the modern State of Israel. We will continue to Qumran, where the famous Dead Sea Scrolls were found and learn about the beliefs of the Jews at the time of Jesus. You will spend the night in Jerusalem.

    Day 2Jerusalem Old City - Jerusalem Hotel (B)

    On day 2, we will narrate a brief introduction of the city from the top of The Mount of Olives, and then, walk down to the Garden of Gethsemane. We will also visit the “Wailing Wall,” the last remnants of the Temple in Jerusalem. If the current situation allows it, we will try to visit the Temple Mount as well. We will follow in the footsteps of Jesus along the Stations of the Via Dolorosa, Jesus’ “Way of Suffering,” and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where Jesus was crucified and buried. The Via Dolorosa also pass through the Old City’s oriental “Suq” (Bazaar). At the end of the day we will visit King David’s Tomb and the “Room of the Last Supper,” the Cenacle. You will spend the night in Jerusalem.

    Day 3Bethlehem - Ein Karem - Jerusalem Hotel (B)

    On day 3, we will travel to Bethlehem and visit the ancient Church of the Nativity, where we can really touch the very place where Jesus was born. Built by St. Helena in the 4th century, it has been an active church and has never been destroyed ever since! Here, St. Hieronymus wrote the first Latin translation of the Bible – the “Volgata.” We will also visit the “Milk Grotto” and the “Shepherds Fields”. Please note that the tour to Bethlehem can be cancelled without prior notice due to security circumstances.

    Returning to Jerusalem we will pass by the picturesque village, Ein Karem, the place where John the Baptist was born. We will visit the “St. John in the Mountains” Church, built on the place where the house of St. John was once standing. We will also visit the Church of Visitation, where St. Mary visited Elisabeth out in the vineyard, and prophesized her birth of St. John. You will spend the night in Jerusalem.

    Day 4Sea of Galilee - Mt. of Beatitudes - Capernaum - Tabgha - Yardenit - Jerusalem Hotel (B)

    On day 4, we will visit the places where Jesus acted around the Sea of Galilee; Capernaum, Peters House, and the famous Synagogue. We will enjoy the view from the mountain of the Beatitudes, where the “Sermon on the Mount” was given, and the reconstructed church at Tabgha, where tradition puts the miracle of the Bread and The Fish. We will also sail on the sea in a boat similar to the boat used by Jesus and his disciples. We will end the day tour at the Baptismal Site on the Holy River Jordan. You will spend the night in Jerusalem.

    Day 5Jerusalem Hotel - Allenby Bridge Or Ben Gurion Airport

    On day 5, after having breakfast, you will check out, and we will accompany you to Allenby Bridge or Ben Gurion Airport.
