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.
  • Our offers include usually breakfast every day and in case of camping the dinner. To give you the flexibility to decide when and where to eat and how much money you like to spend other meals like lunch and dinner are not included. Your tour leader will be able to suggest restaurants during your trip. If you have a stay at one of the Dead Sea Hotels, please note there are no local restaurants in this area.
Itinerary

8.00 AMPick up from hotel

We will start with a drive to the Madaba Town, an ancient town famous for the Byzantine mosaic art. St. George Church will be the highlight of our trip, housing the mosaic map of the Holy Land, dating back to the 6th century. With about two million pieces of local, colored stones, the map depicts the hills, valleys, villages, and towns of Palestine and Nile Delta.

 

10.00 AMMount Nebo

We will have a short drive to Mount Nebo, the sacred place believed to be the burial place of prophet Moses. Enjoy the spectacular view of the Holy Land (if weather is clear) and see more mosaics in the early Christian church of Mount Nebo. Then, we will head to the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea, one of the most incredible places in the world. The area also has a significant role in the Bible, being the destruction site of Sodom Gomorrah. Acting like a health spa, the mineral concentration in the mud is used for therapeutic and beauty treatments. In fact, Queen Cleopatra and Sheba both were said to have known the value of the site and used it. Due to too high salinity, the water doesn’t bear any form of life, and hence the name. Put on some mud, relax in the salty water, and float on your back. Just don’t dunk your head! 

1.00 PMBack to Amman

 Finally, you will be transferred to your hotel or residence at Amman.
