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 4.84 out of 5 based on 160 recent reviews — See All Jordan Reviews

We had a wonderful tour of Jordan. Our guide, Hameed, is a true ambassador for the country and is very knowledgeable and open to sharing, often saying “that is a really good question”, he answered all the questions that came to him and was thorough in his explanations. He was challenged with this tour as there were individuals that were not up to the physical demands of this tour and so in many cases he was operating two tours in order to keep everyone happy. This is a true testament to his acumen as a guide. I believe that On the go should look at screening of Participants to ensure that there is clarity around the physical demands.

The last few days of the tour are really packed with activity, whereas the front end is a bit slower- that is the set up of the tour- would recommend perhaps tightening up the first few days to give more time to the back half activities. We did choose this tour for the meteor showers and were disappointed that there wasn’t much in the way of meteor activity. I would say that was the biggest draw to the tour and therefore the biggest disappointment.

This was a great overall tour of Jordan, and all those we came in contact with as a part of this tour were lovely and hospitable. Our guide is a great asset to On the go and hopefully that will be shared with him.

Thank you Hameed and all the On the go staff we interacted with on this tour. ”

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.
