This enlightening drive through Aqaba offers an excellent overview of one of Jordan's most strategically located historical cities, followed by free time for further exploration.

Depart from the pier and drive directly to Aqaba's resort-dotted southern beach, where you are likely to see water-skiers, snorkelers and sunbathers enjoying this lovely stretch of sand. As Jordan's only outlet to the Red Sea, Aqaba attracts watersports enthusiasts from around the world, as the waters are crystal-clear and nearby Aqaba Marine Park teems with life.

Returning to Aqaba's vibrant city center, you will soon view Aqaba fort, which the Crusaders originally constructed in the 12th century. It has been rebuilt numerous times, usually following the style of the newest conquerors. Your route will also pass the remains of what archaeologists believe to be the world's oldest church, a structure that dates from the late third century B.C. The city itself is even more ancient, having been settled around 4,000 B.C.

Following your panoramic driving tour, you'll have free time to meander about and shop in the city center. Aqaba is known for good buys on traditional jewelry, detailed embroidery and fine baskets. Flat-woven kilims are also highly regarded, and the majority of these rugs bear colorful geometric patterns. Following your free, you'll rejoin your coach and return to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes limited walking, mainly at the guests' discretion during free time. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing (November visits may require a light sweater or jacket); sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
