We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Known as one of the world’s most famous archaeological sites, the city of Petra, capital of the Nabataean Arabs has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985. Also called the “Red Rose City” because of the colour of the stone from which is it carved, the site is located 240 km south of the capital Amman and 120 km north of the red sea town of Aqaba. People don’t often realize how big Petra is! To discover it in full, I have created a series of 3 tours around this magnificent site. In this particular tour, we’ll take a walk to see the Bab al Siq, A 900m long path leading to a vast necropolis in the middle of enormous gorges. We’ll then reach the Genie (Djinn) Tombs: three colossal, squared monuments that stand mightily beside the pathway. After a short walk, we will also see a carved ‘Obelisk Tomb’ with four pyramids perched on top as well as the water dam, and water dark tunnel. Be ready to be amazed! Petra, the world wonder, is undoubtedly Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction and one you shouldn’t miss.
