Wherever we go in the world, Ker & Downey strives to deliver the very best of a region to the elite traveler: cultural experiences, amazing atmosphere, historical destinations and customized luxury accommodations. Go above and beyond these goals in Jordan, where the influence of centuries of converging cultures has left a desert trail of majesty and intriguing natural sites begging to be glimpsed on your journey.
Travel to Jordan through the remains of early Christian villages, dating back to the 4th century, and many of them places you will recognize for your Bible: the mountains of Gilead, the city of Gadara, Mount Nebo and Bethany, the baptismal site of Jesus Christ. Navigate the roads that the Crusaders once marched to tour Aljun Castle, a famous Arab stronghold. Continue on to Jerash, the largest and most intact ancient Roman settlement outside of Europe. A treasure trove of history’s most important places and cultures is laid before you on this desert quest, reaching its apex at Petra, a Nabatean city carved entirely into rose-red sandstone cliffs. This hidden valley is yours to explore for a full day, including such sites as the Treasury, amphitheater, temples, tombs and ancient homes. Though the amazing site is consistently included on “must see” travel destinations of every sort and is visiting by millions annually, your private tour will give the impression that your footsteps are the only ones witnessed by the ancient rock.
Ma’In Hot Springs
It is hard to top the mix of experiential travel and splendid comfort Ker & Downey provides. Spend one of your desert nights under an endless canopy of stars as you lounge in a vintage-style Bedouin tent in the Wadi Rum. Bedouin guides will escort you on thrilling 4×4 rides up the sandy dunes to see the sights once enjoyed by Lawrence of Arabia – a true Jordanian experience. Retire to the privacy of the Bedouin tent, complete with traditional seating on cushions and mats, plus a good dose of frivolity by campfire. Indulge in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea and the Ma’In hot springs, the site of the world’s oldest “natural spa” and a Mecca for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Luxury travel with unmatched service begins by contacting the Ker & Downey professionals. Expand your horizons by embarking on the Bedouin Trails journey to Jordan, a beautiful introduction to the wonder of the Middle East.
