Tours and Trips to Jordan

Home to ancient relics, traditional villages and the lost city of Petra. Discover the best of Jordan with On The Go Tours.

More than three quarters of the country may be covered in desert but in Jordan that results in a surprising variety of landscapes from the endless rocky plains punctuated by grazing camels to the smooth sweeping dunes that morph through rusty hues as the sun rises and falls. Scattered across these sandy lands is a wealth of archaeological marvels, natural wonders and intriguing towns.

Nowhere is the desert better experienced than in Wadi Rum where crevice-riddled cliffs loom over the shifting sands. Here you can camp out under the starry sky with a traditional Bedouin feast. Jordan is also famous for its incredible archaeological sites and the Rose City of Petra is the jewel in the crown with the famed Treasury facade. For those looking for relaxation there's the warm coral-filled waters of the Red Sea at Jordan's prime beach resort of Aqaba or you can dip in the curative waters of the extraordinary Dead Sea.

Voyage to Jordan with us on a group tour to uncover these treasures and more, ring in the New Year from the desert, or try something a little different with one of our select private journeys.

Our tour was by far one of the greatest experiences we’ve ever had. Lots of our friends and family had reservations about us going to Egypt and Jordan, but we never felt unsafe once. We had our ultimate holiday and ticked two wonders of the world off our bucket list in one trip. MoMo, our guide was beyond fabulous. He ran our trip like a well oiled machine, always one step ahead of us coordinating everything. He went above and beyond what we expected. He made sure we had an amazing time, but also befriended us in the process. His knowledge about the different sites we visited was incomparable and he engaged us in different ways to make sure he wasn’t just giving us lectures of information. If you want the adventure of a lifetime, then do this tour. We did and honestly we’d do it again twice over. The pure grandeur of the pyramids and the sheer magnitude of Petra will stay with me always. We also made friends on group tour for life. We’ll be definitely doing another On the Go Tour. On the Go is the most professional company I’ve ever done a tour with. All our transfers, buses and hotel check ins were effortless. Again, I can’t recommend them more. ”

We so enjoyed the 'Road to Jordan with Nile Cruise' tour with On The Go! As soon as we landed, our OTG rep had us through customs in moments and on our way to the hotel. I've never had an immigration experience like this - felt like a rock star.

Our guide, Medo E., has the patience of a saint and apparently, the ability to herd cats. We were everywhere! Medo's passionate devotion to Egypt and her history brings the whole country to life. While still on our (very comfortable) coaches, he would preface each site with historical depth and its cultural importance to Egypt today. His help made it possible to navigate each local situation with ease (hawkers, bargaining, security) and the optional excursions were offered early and clearly so we had time to decide. Our accommodations were comfortable & safe, transportation reliable.

We chose a shoulder season and were thrilled with the weather, upgrade to the cruise. This was my first On The Go tour and highly recommend them to show you the treasures of Egypt. I might just go back.”

Our guide was Sherif. We started our tour from Cairo to Jordan. Sherif has looked after us like a father he even said that we are his “family “ I love that. As the day started he made sure everyone has all the info and everything they need.

Everyone enjoyed his company he would always watch over us even when you can’t see him. He took care of everything for us. We soon became friends and we will never forget that he has offered us the best time of our life.”

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.
