Once described to me, by a group of Bedouin round a campfire above the ancient city of Petra, as 'a quiet house in a noisy neighbourhood', Jordan is firmly back on the tourist map! It has just made the Lonely Planet hot list for 2019, and this is a great time to visit before the crowds return! We ran a version of this trip twice a few years ago, but have made a few tweaks to achieve what I believe is the best itinerary possible.

Jordan is a fascinating country, steeped in history, and with a warm and friendly population. You can find ruins from the Bible, Romans, Crusaders, Saladin and of course the Nabateans, who built Petra. You are even able to wander in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia in the sprawling wilds of Wadi Rum.

We have arranged this trip to take in the very best of this photogenic country, but in a shorter format than our usual tours to make it more affordable.

We start in the sophisticated city of Amman, before exploring nearby ruins and a wildlife wetland - not something that you would expect in a desert country. Certainly there is very little water in our next location, the atmospheric Wadi Rum. We will be able to photograph eroded rocks and star trails from our desert camp, before continuing on to the Red Sea at Aqaba.

This is a great place to join a snorkel boat, to witness the remarkably well preserved coral relatively close to shore.

Nothing can prepare you for the scale and the majesty of the ancient city of Petra. The approach, along the narrow siq, is one of the true Wonders of the World, and we have three nights here - enough to explore every corner.

Less travelled, we visit the Kerak Crusader castle and then the remote Dana Nature Reserve, where we stay in a traditional village at the top of a deep valley.

Our final destination is the pleasant city of Madaba, which we use as a base to float in the salty waters of the Dead Sea, explore Mount Nebo and wander the sprawling Roman city of Jerash. This ancient city has a full sized chariot track where races used to entertain the population. Jerash has been hailed as the best preserved Roman city outside of Italy.

Steve will accompany the tour supplying his unique blend of photographic tuition and encouragement.
