Explore the best of Jordan with our range of escorted group tours or plan your own unique adventure with a tailor-made holiday.

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 of the 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.

Frequently asked questions about our touring holidays in Jordan

Will I see Petra and how much time will I spend at the site?

The incredible Nabataean city of Petra is the country's top attraction and so it's included on all of our Jordan group tours. A full day is spent exploring the temples, theatres and colonnaded streets of the ancient city, with entry via the siq to arrive at the extraordinary Treasury facade. The next morning there is free time to return to Petra via al-Madras, with visits to the High Place of Sacrifice and Wadi Farasa. As two nights are spent at Petra, there is plenty of free time for you to opt for the Petra by Night experience or our Petra Kitchen bolt-on.

What is your desert camp like in Wadi Rum and will I need a sleeping bag?

We also include a night in Wadi Rum on every one of our Signature tours in Jordan. The night is spent in a permanent desert camp with individual tents for two people. Inside the tents are comfortable camp beds and warm bedding, so you don't need to bring a sleeping bag but you may wish to bring your own liner. Showers and toilets are in an outhouse close by with hot running water. There's a communal area with rugs and cushions where food is eaten in the evening. The camp's position at the foot of an easily-climbed rocky hill makes it the perfect spot to watch the sun set.

How much walking is required on your Jordan tours?

Petra is a sprawling site and over the course of the day spent here, you'll be walking for a good six hours and cover approximately 14 km. The climb up to the Monastery alone involves 854 strenuous steps, however, this is an optional visit and donkeys are available if you require assistance. On tours departing between April and October you'll embark on a moderate–paced two hour trek along the Siq Trail at Wadi Mujib. Depending on the water level this can be quite a challenging adventure as climbing is required in sections. If you prefer to give this a miss, you can head straight to the Dead Sea after viewing Wadi Mujib from the entrance of the siq.

What should I wear whilst visiting Jordan?

Jordan is more liberal than many countries in the Middle East yet it is still a conservative country. It's a good idea to dress respectfully and with modesty in mind. This means opting for shorts or skirts that touch the knee, high necklines and keeping shoulders covered. Loose-fitting, opaque clothing is the best option, not only to avoid causing offence but also to be more comfortable in the high summer heats. Choose cotton over synthetic materials and pack a wide-brim hat to keep your face shaded from the intense sun. For footwear, take a good pair of walking shoes for the day of guided sightseeing in Petra.

How big are your tour groups and what is the age of your travellers?

Our average group size in Jordan is around 14 passengers and you'll be travelling with an eclectic mix of English-speaking people from all over the world. Our Christmas, New Year and Perseids Meteor Shower departures attract a larger group size due to the nature of these events. You'll find a wide range of ages on tour from those in their 20s to those in their 60s or even 70s. On average the age is around the mid-40s.

What is the standard of hotels on your trips?

You'll be staying in comfortable, modern 4-star hotels in Jordan. We've chosen well-located properties that offer all the amenities you need. In Petra and the Dead Sea the hotels have a swimming pool where you can cool off after a day in the heat. At Wadi Rum we use a deluxe permanent desert camp with proper bathroom facilities.

What sort of transport do you use in Jordan?

Depending on the group size you'll be travelling in air-conditioned coaches with toilets on board or in smaller mini-vans. At the entrance to the Wadi Rum protected area you'll board well-used 4x4 vehicles to navigate the rolling orange sands. Four passengers get in each vehicle plus a local driver. It's the quickest and easiest way to get to our desert camp.

When is the best time to visit Jordan for general sightseeing?

The months of March and April or September and October are the best time to visit Jordan as this is when temperatures are milder and more comfortable for sightseeing. In April some of the less arid landscapes in Jordan will be in bloom with colourful wildflowers, which makes the country even more photogenic. The months between May and August are very hot and the temperatures can be overbearing for many people but if you want to witness the celestial display of the Perseids Meteor Shower then August is when you should time your visit.

Love love loved it! You have to go! I had decided to spend my birthday on this trip and what a great decision that was!! Thank you Momo for your dedication in educating us and creating a passion I am sure we all discovered for Egypt. We felt safe, spoilt and very welcomed in all the places we visited. We had waited many years to do a trip like this and it exceeded expectation. To our other wonderful guides in Jordan and Israel who's experience and knowledge left me wanting to know as much as possible about these wonderful places "Thank you". You all worked tirelessly to support us and make sure we got the full experience from information to any requests we had day and night. From pyramids and camels to sheesha and falafel. The places you will see, the people you will meet the highlights and nightlights are what this tour is all about. We have made lifelong friends and Momo thank you again for showing us your world as a guide but most of all as one of those lifelong friends. ”

Highlight after highlight. The pace of our tour was excellent with chill days well placed. All our hotels were excellent and exceeded expectation. The sites were mind blowing, the people on our trip were diverse which added to the experience and we made some great new friends. What made our trip however was our Egyptologist and tour guide Momo. The man's passion and love for his country and its incredible history enriched our experience greatly. His knowledge is phenomenal and his communication skills and story telling are second to none. Momo went way beyond his regular duties and extended himself to become our friend as well. He took us to places outside of our itinerary because he wanted to and was available for support outside his regular working hours. I would highly recommend this tour for its mind blowing sites, passionate and knowledgeable tour guides, extraordinary history, the friendships made as well as the hospitality of the locals. At no stage did we feel our safety was compromised either. I would happily travel through Egypt, Jordan or Israel again and catch the sites we missed in this trip. Having said that I would like to thank On the Go for providing a memorable experience, all our new friends for enhancing the experience and especially Momo for being a wonderful Egyptologist, tour guide and dear friend!”

This was the best experience I've had traveling, ever. I'm in Greece right now, and I want to go back to Egypt, back to Jordan. Momo was a phenomenal guide, speaking To us instead of At us. He called us his family, and we felt, very much, like a family. His passion for Egypt was so clear, and the way he explained myths and current Egyptian culture were clear and inspiring. I also took the Cruise and found Aamer to be wonderful, a spiritual counter to Momo's playful side. I loved all of this. When we went to Jordan, the guide Ogla was great as well, but Momo & Aamer were out of this world great. My highlights were the camel ride at the Pyramids, the temple of Isis at Philae, the cruise down the Nile from Luxor, the balloon ride there, the mule ride through Petra, the drive through Wadi Rum, and the site of Jesus' babtism. I know I will go back to Egypt, and I plan to travel again with On the Go. ”
