DAY 2
Wed: Private Guided Tour of Petra, Petra by Candlelight

After breakfast transfer to Petra for your private guided tour of Petra. This  starts with a walk to the Siq, though we offer the choice of doing part of this on horseback should you prefer.

The Siq, legendary in the film Raiders of the Lost Arc, is a 15 minute walk through a long narrow fissure between two overhanging cliffs that leads you to the heart of Petra.

Your private tour then gradually unfolds the mysteries of the Red Rose city with its spectacular Treasury, Royal Tombs, burial chambers and high places of sacrifice. A local expert will take you around proudly sharing his history and insights into this amazing place.

Having familiarised you with the site your guide will leave you for the afternoon to explore the parts of Petra that are of most interest! This can include the Upper Petra area.

Afterwards right at the exit to Petra we would recommend a stop at the oldest Cave Bar in the world. The walls of the Cave Bar are part of an ancient tomb carved by the Nabataeans and the cool evocative atmosphere and drink are most welcome!

As this is a Wednesday you can participate in Petra by candlelight. 1800 candles are lit illuminating the Treasury. Bedouin musicians play haunting tunes to instil a moment of magic. This normally carries an extra charge but is complimentary to guests of Weekend a la Carte.

Overnight in Petra in your 5 star hotel with super mountain views from your room. For more information on magnificent Petra

Firstly visit the magnificent Crusader Fortress of Kerak with its diverse history dating from the Byzantine to the Mamluk period and get to know the architectural military brilliance of the Crusaders.

You will pass through Wadi Al Mujib, a deep valley with one of Jordan’s most breathtaking views.

Today you will visit the Christian town of Madaba – “the city of Mosaics” , where you will visit the St George Church with its extra-ordinary mosaic map of the Holy Land from Byzantine times and the Archaeological Park which houses the amazing mosaics in the Byzantine Church of the Virgin.

Next up is the Monastery in Mt Nebo, one of the most revered holy sites in Jordan as it is the burial place of Moses, with its spectacular view over the Holy Land.

Arrive at the Dead Sea, the lowest place on the planet. The Dead Sea is flanked by mountains to the east and the rolling hills of Jerusalem to the west making it one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world.

Morning at leisure to enjoy the Dead Sea – Try reading a book as you float high in the water due to the high salt content- it is surprisingly easy!

In the late 5th century a church was built here but the recurrent flooding of the river has meant that it had to be rebuilt several times over. At least three other churches have been discovered, built in the 6th and 7th centuries.

Afterwards continue to Aqaba via the Desert Highway.
