After crossing the border, we drive to JERASH to visit the incredible Roman city built over 2000 years ago. Travel to MADABA, the Biblical Medeba for a visit to a church built over the 6th century mosaic map of the Holy Land. Drive on to MT. NEBO to view the mountains of ISRAEL and the PROMISE LAND as Moses did just before he died. Continue south for dinner and overnight on the Dead Sea. Relax with a swim/float in the DEAD SEA.
Leaving the Dead Sea, travel on the Kings Highway, the path of Moses and the children of Israel on their way to Caanan Land. Drive toward Kerak via Wadi El Mujeb, the Grand Canyon of the MiddleEast. View the magnificent Crusader fortresses. Their history goes back long before the Crusaders; the earliest remains are Iron Age, shortly after the Exodus, when this was part of Moab and its doom was prophesied by Isaiah (16:7), who mentions its ‘raisen-cakes’, presumably a local specialty. Continue on to Petra for a day of touring the Red Rock City, considered to be the eighth wonder of the world, a complete city carved in colored sandstone. Enter the Nabatean city of Petra on foot, by horseback or horse-drawn carriage to experience the breathtaking Treasury, the Palace of Justice and other amazing and spectacular sites. After passing back through the Siq, the natural gorge, board the coach to return to our hotel on the Dead Sea.
We will request a late check-out so you can enjoy a swim in the Dead Sea, rest and relax at the incredible Dead Sea. We will have mid-afternoon departure for your transfer across the border to Israel and continue to Ben Gurion International Airport. Breakfast will be provided but you will be on your own for lunch and dinner. The airport at Tel Aviv has an array of restaurants while you wait for departure shortly after midnight.
