Day 2 – Tour Old City & Masjid Al Aqsa:

Today you will explore Jerusalem for yourself and discover why it is one of the world’s foremost pilgrimage destinations due to its numerous sacred buildings and relics.

You will start the morning with a delicious breakfast before a busy day of sightseeing around holy Jerusalem. You will begin your adventure at the famous Dome of Rock, which is an enduring symbol of the city. It is undoubtedly one of the most photographed buildings on earth. As its name suggests, the dome covers a slab of stone sacred to both the Muslim and Jewish faiths. According to Jewish tradition, it was here that Prophet Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son. Islamic tradition has the Prophet Mohammed ascending to heaven from this spot.

Next, you will move onto Al Aqsa Mosque, which is the second oldest mosque in Islam after the Ka’ba in Mecca, and is third in holiness and importance after the mosques in Mecca and Medina. You will have a chance to pray in both landmarks before enjoying guided tour of numerous sites dated in the pre-Islamic period. You will also have the opportunity to walk through the old city Souq to encounter oriental charm and be plunged into the market’s colorful alleys. You will continue to Mount Zion and also see the Tomb of Nebi Daoud.

Finally, you will have a chance to rest your feet as you feast on a scrumptious dinner and enjoy a well-earned rest.

 

Day 3-  Bethlehem & Khalil Al-Rahman (Hebron): zThis morning you will set off for Bethlehem city, by crossing into the West Bank and stopping at the Separation Wall. Then be sure to have your camera ready as you enter Bethlehem to see the birth place of Jesus also known as Nabi Issa. You will then pray in the Omar mosque before visiting Khalil Al-Rahman (Hebron) to pray at the mosque where Prophet Abraham, also known as Ibrahim, and his family are buried. The excitement does not end there, as you will also view the Oak of Mamre, explore the Old City, as well as visiting Nebi Yunes mosque. Finally, as night falls, you will enjoy dinner and overnight in Jerusalem.

 

Day 4 – Al Quds, Jericho, Allenby, Nabi Shoaib, Dead Sea, Seven Sleepers Cave & Amman:
This morning will be etched in your mind forever, as you wake up early and experience morning prayer at Masjid Al Aqsa. After breakfast, you will head off for a green oasis near the Dead Sea – Jericho. This is the lowest city in the world at 240 metres below sea level. You will stop in Ibmoussa mosque, where Prophet Moses who is  also known as Moussa, is buried. You will have an opportunity to pay your respects here and remember his amazing tale before praying at the mosque. Once you arrive in Jericho, you will be able to admire Jabel Alnabi Issa, and Mount of Temptation. Next, you will be transferred to Allenby Bridge to cross into Jordan to visit the Dead Sea. It is believed to be the site of five biblical cities including Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zeboiim, and Zoar. Discover for yourself how the Dead Sea has a density of 1.24 kg, which makes swimming feel similar to floating.

The fun does not end there as you will also visit Nabi Shoaib, and

the Cave of the Seven Sleepers. The attraction is also known as ‘Kahif Al Raqim’ and is a popular site as it has been mentioned in the Holy Quran. According to the Sura named Al Kahf, a group of pious youths took refuge in the cave after being persecuted by the despotic rule of the Trajan. To preserve them, God put them to sleep and when they awoke 309 solar years later, they believed they had only been asleep for a day. Finally, you will check into your hotel in Amman for dinner and a goodnight’s sleep.

 

Day 5 –  Amman & Petra:

Today you will have a wonderful chance to marvel at the beauty of the Red Rose City of Petra. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as you will spend a lot of time exploring its many caves and tombs. You will also have the chance to walk or enjoy a horse ride through Al Siq. Be astounded at the magnificent Treasury, the entrance guarding the ancient Nabatean city, which is now one of the modern seven wonders of the world. Be sure to take your camera with you to snap photos that you will treasure for years to come.

Learn how Petra is an extraordinary and unique place, which was built by the Arab Nabateans more than 2000 years ago. The Nabateans carved their monumental tombs, palaces, temples and treasury from the desert’s natural rose-colored rocks and sandstones. Indulge yourself, and allow the professional guide to walk you through the architectural and spiritual wonders of this majestic place explaining every detail in sight.

There will be time to then explore the city further by visiting Qasr Al-Bint or the Royal Tombs if you wish do to so.

After a busy day, you will have dinner and an overnight stay in Petra

Here you will visit the tomb of his companions Zaid bin Harithah, Ja’far bin Abi Taleb and Abdullah bin Rawahah in the town of Al Mazar near Kerak.
