Our final day in this ancient city is a full free day, which is the perfect chance to opt to head out and experience the ancient allure of the Dead Sea and Masada. You'll drive through Jericho and the Judean hills along the shores of the Dead Sea to Masada, the last stronghold of the Jews after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 A.D. Here, ascend Massada by cable car and tour the mountain fortress built by King Herod, visit the remains of the walls and explore Herod’s Palace. Later, there'll be time to take a dip in the Dead Sea, where you can enjoy the novelty of floating in the unsinkable water and covering yourself with the mineral rich mud.

We’ll enjoy a leisurely breakfast this morning before setting off. With the knowledge that this afternoon we’ll rally in the Red Rose City of Petra, our anticipation will be at an all-time high.

Petra

Pinch yourself - we’re in Petra! Cue the collective gasp in awe of this magnificent site, where the hues of pink make us forget what era (and what planet) we’re in. Once we’re done taking our mental (and physical) pictures, we’ll have our socks blown off a second time as our local guide briefs us on the city’s history. Getting up close and personal with Pharaoh’s Castle, the Triumphal Arc and the Treasury, we’ll see just why this is the greatest attraction in the Middle East. After a full day of ooh-ing and aah-ing, we’ll head back to our hotel for an included dinner.

All that cultural discovery of the past few days has us craving some uber chill vibes, and we’ll find them in Eilat. We’ll leave Petra and embark on a journey through Wadi Rum, Jordan’s largest and most stunning desert.

Wadi Rum

Silent landscapes, ancient riverbeds and pastel colours will have us glued to the windows as we hop in a 4x4 for the full desert experience.

A full day to enjoy the coastal resort of Eilat? You got that right.

You'll have the chance to opt to head to the Underwater Observatory to ogle marine life, hit the beach, or just relax by the pool.

Today is a free day to explore at your own pace, and in a city inundated with beaches, parks, museums, shopping centres and cafes, boredom simply isn’t an option.
