Travel Advice Summary
All of our tours to Jordan follow travel advice offered by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The FCO currently advises against all but essential travel to within 3km of the Syrian border. Our tours do not travel here. Our tours in Jordan focus on the popular archaeological, cultural and natural wonders located much further away in Petra, Amman, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea.
Should you wish to read more travel advice offered by the FCO for Jordan including advice on health, money, safety and entry requirements, you can do so here.
We recommend that travellers familiarise themselves with the latest travel advice for the country they are visiting and make a personal assessment as to whether they are happy with the level of safety, prior to booking.

Our team in Jordan
All of our office team, tour guides and their families in Jordan are safe and well. They are all hoping that the situation is resolved shortly so they can get back to work as soon as possible. They are further concerned about the affects this will have on tourism and the best way that we can support them is by not blanket cancelling tours.
Travelling to Jerash & Umm Qais
Some 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 both fall in remains unaffected by the troubles in Syria and are safe destinations to visit.
Travelling to Amman
A lot of our Jordan group tours start in the capital city of Amman. The city is peaceful and a safe destination for all travellers.
Travelling to Petra
As Jordan's most popular tourist destination, the 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.
