2018 Jordan Adventure
24 March - 1 April, 2018
You have been handpicked to receive this very exclusive invitation to join Tiny World Tours as we spend 6 full days (7 nights) exploring some of the world's oldest and most untouched treasures. Nested between Israel and Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, Jordan is thought to sit in the center of where great civilizations first started. You will quite literally have the opportunity to see thousands of years of history first-hand.
The tour will focus more on the natural aspects of Jordan including the Dead Sea, the Red Sea, the famed Wadi Rum Desert, and of course no trip to Jordan would be complete without experiencing Petra.
Included in the package will be all hotels, transportation around the country, paid entrance to all parks and monuments, access to Bedouin camps and caves, and likely an adventure tour across the Wadi Rum Desert.
We will be going on extended hikes around numerous parts of the country including Petra where we will embark upon a historic western-religion pilgrimage to the peak of Jabal Haroun, also known as Aaron's Tomb - the alleged burial place of Aaron, brother of Moses from the bible. From the top of this peak we will look out into Jordan, Egypt, Israel, and Palestine.
As a bonus, everyone will know how to properly tie their kaffiyeh before leaving!
