DAY 3
Private Guided Tour of Petra, Petra by Candlelight

DAY 3
Private Guided Tour of Petra, Petra by Candlelight

After breakfast your private guided tour of Petra starts with a walk to the Siq. 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!

If on a Monday, Wednesday or Thursday you can participate in Petra by candlelight. 1800 candles are lit illuminating the Treasury. Bedouin musicians play haunting tunes to instill 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 the magnificent Petra

DAY 4
Private transfer to the Dead Sea via John the Baptists Site

DAY 4
Private transfer to the Dead Sea via John the Baptists Site

After breakfast your driver guide takes you on the scenic drive to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Make a stop en route at the location believed to be John the Baptist’s baptismal site.

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 the Dead Sea, for your afternoon at leisure. Enjoy the hotel and for the intrepid a swim, (or should we say float!), in the Dead Sea in the Jordan Rift Valley.

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.

Overnight in your 5* Dead Sea hotel in your Sea View Room.

Reviews & Feedback

Testimonials

Petra was magnificent and we were lucky enough to visit the site early in the morning avoiding the crowds & tour guides. The drive to Bethany was incredibly interesting but it was the changing scenery throughout the entire country that captivated us. We captured the flavour of this beautiful country in the short time we were her and would highly recommend this to others.

Joy Greasley

Weekend a la Carte has out done yourselves again. We had a wonderful time and everything went off without a hitch. The guides were awesome. The accommodations were impeccable. The days had the right amount of activity and down time and we were able to tailor it to how we felt. We enjoyed every minute and have already recommended you to several of our friends. Thanks again.
