Home to ancient relics, traditional villages and the lost city of Petra. Discover the best of Jordan with On The Go Tours.
A land where time stands still, the lost city of Petra attracts travellers from all over the globe. And it's easy to see why; as you stroll through the ancient realms and relics, you'll catch an unforgettable glimpse of the life lived centuries ago.
The rose city of Petra will be at the top of everyone's list, travellers entering through the deep canyon to be greeted with the iconic image of the Treasury facade. The inspiring red sand desert of Wadi Rum is a close second. Here you can dine on a traditional Bedouin feast under a vast sky strewn with glittering stars. And for those who would like a dose of relaxation and rejuvenation, there are the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea.
With our Jordan holidays, you'll get beyond the famous sights. You'll sleep under the stars in the desert. You'll make new friends around a crackling campfire. And you'll meet the welcoming Bedouin tribes.
Because we win British Travel Awards for a reason; our trips are packed with authentic experiences you'll never forget.

I cannot describe how wonderful this trip was..but I am going to try! Everything was perfect, the hotels (including the tent at Wadi Rum), the transport, the food. I mainly went to Jordan to see Petra but I ended up enjoying every single place we visited, it’s unbelievable the history that this country has and how welcoming and kind Jordanians are. The time we spent in the desert, especially at night, was fascinating, and the trekking trail at Wadi Mujib is a must do if you have at least an average level of fitness. I would also recommend to do the optional tour to the Baptism of Jesus site and the hot spring.
What made this trip even more special was our guide, Mahmoud: his passion for his country, along with his excellent English, knowledge, sharp sense of humour, and caring for our needs, was one of the best highlights of Jordan.
Expect to walk quite a lot and, if your level of fitness is below average, you may consider skipping some tours or use horse/donkey rides in Petra. However, if you can make it, I can ensure that this trip is worth every single effort. ”
Excellent Tour from start to finish!
Very easy to book and all information supplied included. ”
Incredible Jordan discovery!
The New Year in Petra tour was a wonderful discovery of the extraordinary Ancient and Biblical history of this region. Our guide was exceptional in the way he delivered his extensive knowledge. Highly recommended! ”
Frequently asked questions about our Jordan holidays
Will I see Petra and how much time will I spend at the site?
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 add-on.
Many tour operators only spend one night in Petra on their Jordan holidays. But we want our travellers to have plenty of time to take in this unique world wonder!
What is your desert camp like in Wadi Rum and will I need a sleeping bag?
Inside the tents are comfortable camp beds and warm bedding, so you don't need to bring a sleeping bag. However, 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 sunset.
How much walking is required on your Jordan tours?
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?
We recommend choosing cotton over synthetic materials and packing 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?
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?
What sort of transport do you use in Jordan?
When is the best time to visit Jordan for general sightseeing?
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.
