Travel Advice for Jordan

As a tour operator registered in the United Kingdom we follow the travel advice as set out by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) who currently advises against all but essential travel to within 3km of the Syrian border. None of our Jordan tours come close to the Syrian border and focus on the perfectly safe tourist destinations of Amman and destinations further south. A number of our tours visit Umm Qais which is 30km distance from the border and unaffected by the troubles in Syria. All tours are running as normal.

For more information please visit the FCO website.

You may also wish to consult Smart Traveller when planning your trip for insurance cover purposes.

Travelling to Jerash & Umm Qais

A number of our group tours visit the ancient ruins of Jerash and Umm Qais located in the northern region of Jordan. Umm Qais is the northern-most site that our tours visit in Jordan and is located approximately 12km from present day Syrian territory. The area that Jerash and Umm Qais fall in remains unaffected by the troubles in Syria and are safe and rewarding destinations to visit.

Travelling to Amman

Many of our Jordan group tours start in the capital city of Amman. The city is peaceful and is a safe destination for all travellers.

Travelling to Petra

As Jordan's prime tourist destination, the incredible Lost City of Petra remains a perfectly safe place to visit. Located 225km south of the Syrian border, Petra and the surrounding area, including Wadi Rum which lies further south, do not suffer from any unrest.
