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.Read More

I absolutely love traveling with On the Go Tours. This is my third trip with On the Go and I have come to expect exceptional experiences. Totally Jordan did not disappoint. One of the things I have come to expect from On the Go is that I will incredibly well taken care of from when I step off the plane until I depart. It is such a relief to arrive at the end of a long journey in the middle of the night and be greeted and have someone take care of things like your tourist visa for you.
Petra by night was spellbinding and the trek through the ancient ruins of Petra the next day at times took my breath away! Jerash was a revelation to me and the mosaics in Madaba were phenomenal. Hiking up the canyon in Wadi Mujib was an unforgettable experience. The biggest highlight to me was the night in Wadi Rum surrounded by the endless desert. Relaxing at the Dead Sea was a perfect way to end our tour.
For me, the best part of any journey is the incredible people I meet along the way. Eid is a fantastic guide with a wealth of knowledge and an obvious passion for his country and his career. Thank you On the Go Tours for another live-changing experience! ”
The tour was amazing ! What our tour guide 'Momo'' doesn't know about Egypt and it's history is not worth knowing. He went over and above to made sure everyone had a great tour and was always the ultimate professional, I can't sing his praises enough. Never at any stage of the tour did I ever feel unsafe or uncomfortable, the Egyptian people were so kind and friendly to us all.
I would highly recommend this tour and especially 'Momo' to all my family and friends.”
I cannot speak more highly of our tour guide in Egypt, Dino. The trip through Egypt was spectacular and Dino was the perfect tour guide. He knew so much about all the places we visited, answered every question and made the whole trip seamless and safe. I would absolutely book w/On the Go again and, more importantly, recommend Dino and the Egypt tour specifically to family and friends in the United States. Trip highlights that I loved: the Felucca Nile River cruise (Mohammed, our boat captain was fantastic! We spent 2 1/2 days swimming in the Nile; sailing the river and visiting a Nubian home and getting to know the family. Abu Simbel is NOT to be missed! Luxor/Valley of the Kings lived up to all of my expectations and Luxor Temple at Night just blew my mind.”

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.
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.
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.
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.
A charming town known for its thriving markets and stunning mosaics which date back to the Byzantine era, Madaba is both an interesting and hospitable stop on any Jordan itinerary. Throughout the city there are a number of boutiques and outlets selling tasteful handmade crafts, particularly tapestries and carpets. For those looking to get more familiar with Madaba’s mosaic-related history, the Archaeological Park and Museum is a great place to start.
The Dana Nature Reserve is the largest nature reserve in all of Jordan and sprawls across over 300 square kilometres. One of the main features of the park is the ancient village of Dana, which dates back to the 15th century and houses but a handful of residents. Despite its seemingly arid landscape, the Dana Nature Reserve is inhabited by hundreds of species of animal and bird and also boasts an impressive number of different plants.
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.
