The jewel in Jordan's antiquities crown is the legendary Rose City of Petra where a walk down a narrow canyon ends at the towering Treasury facade. See the Roman influence in the remarkably well-preserved ancient city of Jerash in the north of the country whilst the impressive Christian mosaics still decorate the floor of Byzantine churches in Madaba. Marvel at the never-ending sand dunes and dramatic rock cliffs of Wadi Rum or soak in the medicinal waters of the Dead Sea.

Journey to Jordan with us on an escorted group tour that covers all the highlights, celebrate New Year's under the desert sky or set your own pace with a tailor-made holiday.

Wow wow wow what a great tour my husband and I just loved it. So well organised. Medo our Egypt guide was great so passionate about Egypt and so entertaining he made it fun to learn all the history even throwing in a play of which I had a staring role as Isis! Egypt was a major bucket list tick for me and it didn’t disappoint. Thank you Medo, thank you On The Go, I will and actually already have recommend this tour to all my friends and family.

Jordan was also fantastic and Mohammad (also part time pharmacist) was again a great guide, nothing was too much trouble. Loved it all. ”

We visited the pyramids, Abu Simbel, Valley of the Kings and the Egyptian museum. We loved the Nile River Cruiser and the sleeper train is something we can’t do at home. Tonga and Momo took great care of us and treated us like family. Our trip would not have been the same without Momo. He was an absolute pleasure to be with and he went above and beyond. To suggesting the yummiest restaurants to go to, to getting us the best deal on souvenirs, to getting us to the sights early before they got busy, to making sure I was taken care of when I wasn’t feeling well, we could not have gotten better service from him. His sense of humour was an added bonus and he was super patient with all of our questions which I’m sure he’s answered a million times over the years. You cannot have a superior guide than Momo! ”

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience in Egypt and Jordan. Felt really comfortable the whole way that OTG would look after our interests.

Egypt was definitely an eye opener. Nader was the best possible tour guide you could ask for. Communication, planning and attention to detail in every aspect of the tour, right down to arranging late check outs at hotels knowing that we would be wanting showers etc before the next leg of the journey. A really great guy as well - he made us all feel safe and he was part of our tour group, not just the guide.

We spent a couple of nights on the Felucca. Recommend that ear plugs are added to the list of essential items to block out snoring! The two train trips were the least enjoyable aspect of the tour. Recommend Nader for the tour guide of the year award.”

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.
