In Jordan we can explore the dramatic desert landscapes of Wadi Rum in a 4x4 Jeep and float relaxingly in the famous waters of the Dead Sea. In Syria, perhaps you'll feel like wandering around the stunning Omayyad mosque and bartering to your heart's content in the bustling bazaars of Damascus.

Why not join us and discover the infectious magic of an area known as the 'cradle of civilisation'!Our InclusionsAt Topdeck we realise that cash doesn't grow on trees, so we're all about trying to give you maximum value for money, whilst never compromising on quality. Choose to visit the Middle East with Topdeck and you'll stay in quality 3-star hotels, you'll enjoy included airport transfers when you arrive and depart, and you'll find that all entry fees have already been paid for in your trip cost! But that's not all - the astounding ancient city of Petra in Jordan has been described by UNESCO as "one of the most precious cultural properties of man's cultural heritage" and was unsurprisingly chosen as one of their World Heritage Sites. In our more humble opinion, it's hands down one of the most amazing sights you will ever see!
