My husband & I are planning a trip to Israel & Jordan in mid september this year, our first time in the region.
We had planned to land in Tel Aviv before visiting Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Lake Galilee & then go to Petra & spend a week in Jordan & fly home from Amman. We are both seasoned travellers and had hoped to do it all ourselves.
My questions are:
1.How many days do I need in Petra?
2. Any recommendations for other things to see in Jordan? We hoped to spend a week in Israel & a week in Jordan.
3.Is it worth doing the dead sea on both sides (israel & jordan) or is one side far superior?
4.We would also love a night in the desert, does this have to be through an organised tour, can anyone recommend any tour companies?
Many thanks :)
