Jordan Discovery

8 Day Tour, from £1645 per person

Joined by like-minded travellers and led by professional, local guides, this small group tour is the perfect introduction to one of the most intoxicating and enchanting countries in the Middle East. Jordan has been spoiled, really - this small country is home to a wide range of staggeringly beautiful landscapes, from the ochre-red sands of Wadi Rum Desert to the glistening (and incredibly salty) Dead Sea. Visitors are lucky that Jordan is eager to share its deep roots in the region's ancient history; travellers can walk down the siq to discover the ancient Nabatean civilisation of Petra, carved into the desert canyon walls, or climb to the top of the Roman amphitheatres at Jerash.

But in true Regent Holidays style, you'll discover more than just the well-known highlights on this group tour, designed to remind you that Jordan is a country of as many natural wonders as it man-made. You'll discover the beauty of one of Jordan's protected reserves, Ajloun Nature Reserve, by exploring rolling hills dotted with oak and pistachio trees, before continuing to search for hidden escape tunnels in the crusader castles at Kerak. Leaving the big city of Amman behind, the history lesson continues in Madaba where you will stop to see the oldest map of the Holy Land – a 6th-century mosaic.
