Includes flights from Heathrow, transfers, excursions in Amman, Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea and a week with breakfast in four-star hotels. "Petra is one of those places you never forget your first glimpse of," says Megan Shaw at Audley (01993 838 415; audleytravel.com).
£1,499: Luxury Dead Sea and Red Sea
