Jordan Tours and Travels
Jordan is perhaps best known for the lost city of Petra with its famous Treasury and Monastery. Delve deeper into Jordan and you’ll find the red desert sands of Wadi Rum where you can dine around a crackling bonfire under the desert stars with the welcoming Bedouin tribes. There's the warm coral-filled waters Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea and the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea. With Crusader castles, incredible views of the Promised Land from sacred Mt Nebo, Amman - Jordan’s modern capital city, Roman Jerash and the Sea of Galilee, Jordan makes for a truly perfect holiday destination.
Travelling with us, you'll see the very best of Jordan, be it on one of our guided group tours with expert local guides, or on a tailor made holiday. We also recommend combining a visit to nearby Egypt or Israel with your holiday to Jordan.
Travelling with us you'll get off the grid in the vast red landscape of Wadi Rum on a 4x4 desert safari stopping to marvel at natural rock formations, scale towering sand dunes and enjoy a cup of mint tea made by your Bedouin guide. Located at the foot of a rocky outcrop, our desert camp is the perfect place to quietly contemplate the vast starry sky and feast on a sumptuous BBQ dinner.

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
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 passage way of the Siq, impressive Treasury facade, a beautiful hilltop monastery and numerous other monuments you’ll need at least two days at this impressive archaeological site. Plus why not visit at night, when the entire site is illuminated in the glow of candle light.
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.
Dating back some 2000 years, the ancient town of Jerash is brimming with remarkably well-preserved ruins that are testament to its grandiose past as a thriving Roman hub. Colonnaded streets marked by chariots, the remains of a once magnificent theatre, public squares, ruinous temples and the impressive Arch of Hadrian are just some of Jerash’s many treasures.
Modern day Amman is a thriving Arabian city with two very different vibes. In the west you’ll find trendy cafes and art galleries, bustling shops and coffee houses spilling into the streets, while in the east there very much remains a more traditional way of life and numerous ancient sites to explore. Both areas are well-worth discovering to see two different aspects of Jordanian city life.
Set in the relaxed town of Madaba in central Jordan, Mt Nebo is perhaps one of the most sacred sites in the entire nation. Believed to be where Moses first caught sight of the Promised Land, it offers incredible panoramic views of the Jordan River Valley as well as the northern shore of the Dead Sea. A trek up to the summit is well worth the huffing and puffing!
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.
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.
Greatest ever holiday I had. Touring around Jordan and celebrating New Year in Wadi Rum desert in Bedouin camp. We visited many places - Umm Qays, Jerash, Karak, Petra and Amman. We had the greatest tour guide - Ogla Nawafleh. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit Jordan.”
