Peltours Launch Luxury Breaks to Jordan featuring Amman, Petra & The Dead Sea

February 11, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Specialist operator Peltours is launching an exclusive programme of luxury short breaks discovering mystical Jordan with flights from Heathrow to Amman with Royal Jordanian Airlines.

Peltoursí unique 4 and 7 night tours of Jordan combine the heritage sites of Amman and Petra with relaxation on the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, staying at luxury Marriott Hotels throughout.

The bustling city of Amman is a fascinating mix of architectural and cultural highlights. Guests will enjoy a panoramic tour of the city together with private guided excursions to the rose-red city of Petra. Buried by sand for centuries and rediscovered in 1812, Petra is deservedly cited as one of the wonders of the ancient world and features breath-taking architecture in its tombs, temples and theatres built into the sandstone rock. Other historic sites still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, will include Mount Nebo, the alleged burial site of Moses and the oldest map of the Holy Land, as well as the mosaic city of Madaba.

Guests will enjoy the highest standards of luxury and comfort at three Marriott Hotels throughout the tour: The Marriott Amman is close to all the major tourist attractions of the city, while the Deluxe Jordan Valley Resort & Spa boasts an extensive range of luxury treatments and therapies based on the renowned restorative properties of the Dead Sea. The Petra Marriott Hotel enjoys panoramic views of the stunning Sharah mountains.
