Rami is my favourite! He made this trip 100% better! As we explored the country of Jordan he provided us with tips and tricks that helped us to get the most out of each experience. From being the first group to reach Petra at night to dancing the night away in Madaba, Rami guided the group through a magical week. ”  

• Submitted 7 Oct 2015

Great holiday, the tour included all the best parts of Jordan. Not a camping person so one day in the camp would have been sufficient. ”  

• Submitted 31 Aug 2015

Generally all fine. Good guide. Hotels not great but suffering a bit from lack of tourists due to problems in the surrounding countries. Rooms OK but air conditioning couldn't cope with extreme heat, breakfast/service not that good. Itinerary was good. Aqaba probably not worth visit though probably on route. Thought Jordan quite expensive. Could include more Biblical references + Lawrence of Arabia in publicity and on tour to attract more people?”

See the best of Jordan with us

All our trips start in Jordan's vibrant capital Amman and we also include a visit to the Dead Sea as well as 2 nights in Petra, giving you lots of time to explore this amazing site. There's an amazing walk through the iconic Siq to enter Petra, and you're bound to stop in your tracks when you first catch glimpse of the Treasury - it's quite a special moment! After a full day at Petra, where the Monastery is another undoubted highlight, we also get a chance to see the Treasury at night when it is beautifully illuminated by candle light. A night camping the Wadi Rum desert, floating in the Dead Sea and a visit to Mt Nebo with amazing views over to Israel are other key draw cards.

Recommended places to visit in Jordan

The world-famous ancient city of Petra is just one reason to visit Jordan with beautifully preserved Roman ruins, other-worldly deserts starring in Hollywood films and remarkable natural phenomena competing for your attention. Here's a selection of our favourite destinations in Jordan.

Aqaba - Red Sea Relaxation

View on map
Sea view | Aqaba | Jordan

While there are so many intriguing historical sites to explore and cultural experiences to be had in Jordan, sometimes all one desires is a little R&R. If this is the case then look no further than the laid-back Red Sea city of Aqaba. Fringed with palm-trees and sandy beaches with gorgeous warm waters brimming with colourful coral reefs, a few days of relaxation here certainly won’t go amiss.

Dead Sea - Bob Like a Cork

View on map
The Dead Sea | Jordan

Whether you fancy bobbing like a cork or lathering yourself with mineral-rich mud on the shore, a visit to the Dead Sea is an absolute must for any trip to Jordan. The rugged coastline and buoyant blue waters of this popular site have been attracting travellers for centuries that come in search of its beauty and healing properties. Wade in and have a read while lazily floating across the horizon.

Petra - The Lost City

View on map
The Siq | Petra | Jordan

Hidden away in a secluded valley amidst the mountainous Jordanian landscape, it is no wonder why Petra was lost to the world for hundreds of years before its rediscovery in the 1800s. With the winding narrow passageway of the Siq, impressive Treasury facade, a beautiful hilltop monastery and numerous other monuments you’ll need at least two days to explore.

Wadi Rum - Wild Desertscapes

View on map
Camel trekking | Wadi Rum | Jordan

Renowned for its sandstone landscape of mountains and valleys, natural arches, towering cliffs, narrow gorges and dramatic ramps and caverns formed over millions of years, the Valley of the Moon is nothing less than spectacular. The best way of experiencing Wadi Rum for yourself is by witnessing the sunset over the vast silent horizon and spending a night under the stars.
