Pick up from Amman, depart to the Nabatean Red-Rose City of Petra, the new wonder of the world, carved in stone more than 2000 years ago in order to dominate the trade routes of ancient Arabia. Visit its towns, damns, and water channels. The tour starts by walking the siq, a narrow path of three quarters of a mile (1.2 kilo meters), which is the main entrance to the city. At the end of the siq, you will see the treasury " Khazneh". Return to Amman.
* Duration of trip: 10-12 Hours
Compared to many of its neighbors in the Middle East, Jordan is an exceptionally safe country to visit. In fact, the Jordanian government puts a lot of effort and money into making visitors feel safe through high-profile security and police presence in tourist regions and in hotels.
The best times to visit Jordan are spring (March to May) or fall (September to November). The days are warm, with temperatures between 61°F and 99°F, but the nights are cool. It's not too hot for exploring sites or hiking in the nature reserves, where flora and fauna are abundant.
You can comfortably see Petra in a day. Everyone has different levels of historic site tolerance: you could spend five to six hours exploring, or twice that time – but even so, a day gives you plenty of time.
