Explore the best of Jordan with our range of escorted group tours or plan your own unique adventure with a tailor-made holiday.

Jordan has long enjoyed friendly relations with the UK and its ancient wonders provide a powerful draw for visitors to the country. An easy flight away, the Hashemite Kingdom has featured in a slew of popular films from Lawrence of Arabia to Indiana Jones and has plenty of star quality of its own. The rose city of Petra will be the top of everyone's list - entering through the deeply cut canyon to be greeted with the iconic image of the Treasury facade.

Delve deeper into Jordan and you’ll find the red desert sands of Wadi Rum where you can dine around a crackling bonfire under the desert stars with the welcoming Bedouin tribes. Finish with some rest and relaxation besides the warm coral-filled waters of Aqaba on the Red Sea or the therapeutic waters of the 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.

Jordan tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.86 out of 5 based on 101 recent reviews — See All Jordan Reviews

The tour covered the main archaeological sites in Egypt. Returning many years after my first visit the sites are still incredible.

We had no issues with safety and were very well looked after by Momo our tour guide.

Momo was professional and very knowledgeable about the history of Egypt. He also made the tour fun and was the key to making our group bond.

I would recommend to anyone to go there and would like to thank Momo and On the Go tours for a terrific time.”  

Derek Ah Sam • Submitted 2 Jun 2018

What an amazing experience Egypt is 💕. An adventurous and diverse group of 18 set off to tackle pyramids, tombs and old stuff. It was all overwhelmingly beautiful and fascinating! Our guide Momo was so knowledgeable and entertaining which made our group bond closely and have the maximum of fun.

From the impressive pyramids in Cairo, Valley of the Kings, Abu Simbel, swimming in the Nile, to sleeping on a felucca it was the whole experience. There were bumps on the way, such as sandstorms which held up our felucca experience but Momo sorted out alternative arrangements quickly and professionally.

I would do it all again in a heartbeat and would recommend On the Go as a superb company to tour with. I felt safe the entire time and can see that tourism is developing in a positive way throughout all of Egypt. If you are lucky enough to have Momo as your guide you will have the best of times.

Also I cannot forget Amir who was the On the Go representative that welcomed us at the hotel armed with information and his beaming smile and got us started with the tour.

Thanks Momo, Amir and On the Go Tours - making forever memories!”  

Rachel Trafford • Submitted 21 May 2018

This trip without a doubt well exceeded my already high expectations!

ARRIVAL

Arriving into Cairo airport as a single traveller I was a little nervous but that disappeared as soon as I was met by the On The Go rep Abdul who took me through customs and immigration and baggage claim. He delivered myself and 2 other travellers to the transfer where we were met by our local Cairo rep Mido who was just lovely. He was a friendly, smiling face who told us what to expect from our arrival and next couple of days until we met our tour guide. He was available in the lobby regularly to answer any questions we had and helped us arrange money exchange and an ATM. The other Cairo rep, Amir, was also super lovely and always willing to help whenever he was around. He saw us to the airport at the end of our stay in Egypt.

ITINERARY

The flow of the trip was fabulous. My mind was blown at the fact that I was looking at things that were up to 4,500 years old. It was hard to believe that these sites are still in such good condition. I never felt bored at any of the sites. You would think that at some stage you might feel a bit 'oh great, another bloody temple' but nope. Everything was fabulous and each site had it's own special something that the others didn't. Please don't ask me for a favourite site because I can't choose!

OK you've twisted my arm! Abu Simbel is a MUST DO. Pay the extra money and do it because if you don't you'll just end up paying for it when you get there. It is enormous and something special. Philae temple has a calm magic about it. Valley of the Kings was unreal as you got to see how everything was actually painted. It's amazing that after all of these years you can still see the original paint. Karnak Temple Complex is another site to behold. It is by far the biggest. My last favourite was the Indiana Jones special - the lost city of Petra. Be prepared to do a lot of walking. Day 1 at Petra we walked up to the Monastery through the city and that was about 12 - 15kms at least. We all had sore feet and knees at the end but ok by day 2. A few people weren't quite up to the hike to the top of the Treasury on day 2 but if you are mobile, you should absolutely do this. The view is awesome! It is a tricky hike along cliff walls and down rock canyons. A challenge for those who don't do well with heights but doable! You don't have to be a hiking pro. We all did it in a pair of runners. Ooo and floating in the Dead Sea. What a bizarre experience that was! You have to make zero effort to float which was well deserved after all of the hiking and walking we had done! Staying at the Holiday Inn at the Dead Sea and having 2 days to relax at the end was the perfect way to finish the trip. Snorkelling in the Red Sea in Egypt was also a great experience and one that never registered for me when I booked it but I do recommend seeing it because the water is crystal clear and the visibility is far.

I did not feel at all rushed as we had plenty of free time at the sites to explore and take photos. The trip was evenly paced and suitable for all age groups. Our group ranged from 21yo to early 70s. The bus rides were not too long. Maybe 6hrs at most with plenty of toilet stops and snack breaks.

TOUR GUIDES

In Egypt we had Momo who is a seasoned professional. His knowledge of Egypt and his love for his country was just inspiring. We all walked away in love with Egypt no doubt due to him. He is a fabulous teacher and by the end he had us picking out the Gods by name on the carvings and hyroglyphs. His catch phrases also made us laugh regularly. Get ready, get excited! We were fortunate to have him.

In Jordan we had Mahmoud or Mido who was very lovely and friendly. He was always smiling and willing to help whenever you needed it especially when we were buying some lovely souvenirs at Petra. He took us on some awesome hikes at Petra which were my favourite.

Loved every minutes of it and I'd recommend it to anyone!”

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.
