Jordan Tours & Holidays

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



A land where time stands still, the Rose Red 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. It's one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, too!

The Nabatean 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. Meanwhile, history buffs will fall in love with the ancient Roman city of Jerash.

With our Jordan holidays, you'll get beyond the famous sights with our local guides. 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.

Jordan tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.96 out of 5 based on 27 recent reviews — See All Jordan Reviews

We toured for 23 days through Egypt, Jordan and Israel. The tour was well structured - a great itinerary and great/good guides. Our guide in Egypt Mahmoud Ramadan as excellent. He is the main reason I would recommend OnTheGo Tours. This is my fifth trip overseas and I have had countless short tour guides. He is the best! You want to request him if touring with On The Go in Egypt.

I also thoroughly enjoyed my time in Jordan. I was looking forward to Petra but was surprised by how much I loved Wadi Rum, Wadi Mujib and the Dead Sea. This was such a varied experience and a great time. We added a few days at the beginning in Cairo and a few days at the end in Tel Aviv which I would definitely recommend. Overall this was a great trip.

On The Go took very good care of us from meeting us at the airport to the transfer to the airport at the end. Great Service.”

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. ”

Frequently asked questions about our Jordan group tours

Will I see Petra and how much time will I spend at the site?

The incredible ancient city of Petra is the country's top attraction and so it's included on all of our Jordan trips. 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 (of Indiana Jones fame).

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, including the main sights and some hidden gems too!

What are your desert camps 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 our permanent Bedouin 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 on your trip to Jordan. 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 a traditional Bedouin dinner 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 trips?

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.

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 throughout your Jordan holiday. 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 offense, but also to be more comfortable in the high summer heat.

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?

Our small group tours in Jordan have an average group size of 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, perfect after a day exploring. 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. You can information about the hotels used on each tour on the relevant tour page.

What sort of transport do you use in Jordan?

Depending on the group size, you'll be travelling in an air-conditioned vehicle such as a mini van or coach (depending on group size) with toilets on board. 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.

Can I visit the beach in Jordan?

Jordan has a tiny sliver of Red Sea coastline - 27 kilometres to be precise. The resort city of Aqaba is the best place to enjoy some R&R at the Red Sea coast, though of course, the Dead Sea is also a great option. We visit the Dead Sea on all of our Jordan packages and can incorporate a visit to Aqaba on a Tailor-made Jordan holiday for you.

As a solo traveller will I have to pay more to travel to Jordan?

Travelling solo doesn't have to cost more, and solo travellers who are happy to share a room can do so on our Signature tours to Jordan, subject to there being another solo traveller of the same sex for you to share with. Please book a single room and contact us if your preference is to room share. The cost of the single supplement will then be refunded.

Solo travellers who would prefer the privacy of their own room can pay the single supplement, the price of which is listed on each tour page. A single room supplement applies for solo travellers on our Handpicked Jordan trips.
