Departure Time

8:00 AM
After early pickup from your Amman hotel, settle inside your private, air-conditioned vehicle with your private driver.

Then, admire Jordan’s rugged landscapes as you head south along the desert highway toward Wadi Rum. This UNESCO-protected wilderness lies in south Jordan, and consists of pink desert plains punctuated by mountains, cliffs, and gorges traditionally inhabited by Bedouin tribes. The wadi is also where T.E. Lawrence, better known as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ fought alongside the Bedouin during World War I, and where many scenes from the 1962 movie epic, 'Lawrence of Arabia,' were filmed.

On arrival, swap your vehicle for a 4x4 with a Bedouin driver at the wheel, and head for the Wadi Rum visitor center at the gateway to the valley.

Then, set off on a 4x4 tour of the area. Pass the towering mountain columns called the ‘Seven Pillars’ after Lawrence’s book, and soak in the stunning, lunar-like scenery as you pass red dunes and towering granite crags.

Stop to check out natural highlights such as the Hanging Arch and Khaza'ali spring, nicknamed ‘Lawrence’s Spring.’ This natural spring gushes from a rocky hillside and is where Lawrence reputedly bathed during the 1917-1918 Arab Revolt.

Rumble along chiseled gorges and valleys, drinking in steep cliffs and rock formations, and stop to view ancient rock art and inscriptions dating back up to 12,000 years.

During your tour, relax at a Bedouin camp over a refreshing tea or coffee, and refuel with lunch (own expense) before or after your 4x4 explorations. Before taking your leave, you will also head off the main Wadi Rum tourist track to follow less-visited trails near Jordan’s border with Saudi Arabia.

After admiring the scenery of this remote area, make your return drive to Amman, ending your trip with a hotel drop-off.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Wadi Rum Protected Area
This unique tour leaves early morning from Amman via desert highway. Here we board our 4X4 jeep, driven by professional Bedouin drivers ( Optional ) and ride to the visitor center in Wadi Rum. From here it's onto Jordan's legendary sandstone area of Wadi Rum. The enchanting Wadi Rum is an area almost surreal in its distinctive beauty. Cross red sand dunes and explore the beautifully eroded pillars of sandstone rock, among the natural attractions, are what have become known as ‘The Seven Pillars'. It was this area of Wadi Rum that so inspired T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia). Wadi Rums' beauty remains intact and its breathtaking scenery is still an inspiration for those who travel there. Visit the famous spring at ‘Khaza'ali' and the Hanging Arch. We also drive along the rarely visited but equally stunning trails just beside the Saudi Arabian border. Back to Amman by evening. Lunch is not included on the tour.

One day tour to Wadi Rum
karinaloktionova

I had a day tour from Amman to Wadi Rum. I had a full VIP service. I didn’t stay in the desert overnight but if you can, definitely do it! The tour was fun, and I got to see the amazing scenery, drink Bedouin tea made on a bonfire and take millions of pictures with the help of my tour guide. It’s one of those things you can’t miss if you are in Jordan! Everyone was very professional, punctual and accommodating. Highly recommend!
