Introducing Jordan

Jordan's top attractions Petra, the Dead Sea and Wadi Rum are all amazing in their own right. The fact that these world-class sites are located just a few hundred miles from each other make Jordan a must-see travel destination. The country's excellent infrastructure and friendly people add to its attractiveness. You can experience Jordan in just a few days, and combine it with a visit to neighboring countries, or spend 2+ weeks exploring history, nature and culture. Browse our Jordan tours to get inspired before connecting to one of our local Jordan specialists. 

When is the best time to visit?
Jordan is a year-round destination, but peak-time for touring Jordan is spring (March-May), when temperatures are still warming up and wildlife is at its finest. Autumn (September - November) is also popular.  Both seasons see milder temperatures, making hiking and sightseeing alike more comfortable. Read more details about the best time to visit Jordan.

Top places to explore
In addition to visiting Jordan's top 3 (Petra, the Dead Sea and Wadi Rum), we highly recommend taking the time to experience Jordan more deeply, through activities such as sharing a meal with a local family, staying at a bedouin camp, and trekking through a wadi (desert canyon). Find more ideas here.

Getting Around
Jordan is a compact country with a great highway network. Most travelers opt to hire a private driver to explore its amazing sites. Read more

We had a terrific trip to Jordan and Egypt planned by Samir. The hotels were just what we wanted, the guides and drivers top notch. Samir anticipated exactly the trip we wanted and brought everything together. beautifully.

The only disappointment was the car in Jordan. It had some issues that should have been addressed before use. It also was fairly old and probably should be retired from a a trip of this caliber. That said, the driver - Amin - handled the challenges with grace and humor.

Another suggestion would be to remind clients of the need to secure an Egyptian visa themselves. I discovered this quite by accident a couple weeks before the trip.

Overall, we will continue to recommend KimKim and were very happy with Samir and Enjoy Jordan. Many, many thanks for a memorable visit.

I have wanted to go to Jordans for almost 40 years. I have lived in the Middle East and traveled and worked in many of the countries but I never had a business reason to go to Jordan and then when I retired it just never seem to work out. I had a sudden schedule opportunity to fit in a couple weeks in Jordan and I contacted Kim Kim. I told them what I was interested in since I'm a history buff and also a seasoned amateur archaeologist. They responded almost immediately and put together a fabulous itinerary and got me a guide that just couldn't have been better.

What Kim Kim has always done well for me is to know the local market and be able to find resources. In this. In this case they put together an itinerary together with Flow Travel of Jordan travel, and found me an archaeologist as a guide. The guide, Amer Bdour, was absolutely perfect for my needs. He was well-versed in the history of the sites that we went to and since he had worked with the Archaeology Directorate he knew the archaeological history of the sites as well. Archaeology is never static, there's always new discoveries that are changing viewpoint on historical events and sites. Amer and I had some delightful conversations and debates about the wonderful sites that we visited

Petra is the big tourist draw in Jordan, and certainly the two days we spent wandering around Petra or amazing. But Jordan is much more than that. The neolithic sites go back to almost 10,000 years BCE. Historical chronology from the time of Christ onward includes amazing transformations between Nabatean, Greek, Persian, Roman, Byzantine, Crusader, and Muslim empires. It was fascinating to visit the various sites and see the evolution represented in architecture and iconography.

I also have a particular interest in TE Lawrence in the Arab Revolt during WW1. The schedule had me visiting four places where there's good historical evidence that Lawrence was there, including his office in the ancient Al-Asraq Castle. Amer understood how important that was to me and went out of his way to make sure I had enough time at these sites. I also got to talk and interact with some of the Bedouin tribe members whose tribes were part of the Arab Revolt. This is very real history to them and I remember one of the Bedouin tribesman telling me with pride that his grandfather rode with Lawrence in the attack on Aqaba on 1917.

We did include some non-historical sightseeing at Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea. I will most likely come back with my wife next time and will probably do a more nature focused trip. There's no doubt I will arrange this trip yet again with Kim Kim

Hotel Review
Petra Marriott Hotel
Wadi Musa

The trip Kim Kim arranged for me included wonderful accommodations. The only exception was the Petra Marriott. I am a Marriott BonVoy member and I stayed at Marriott before and after Petra. Those before and after hotels were great.However, I thought this hotel was not at all customer focused. It started when they put me, a single person, in a room with three beds. There's no reason for this since occupancy at hotels his way down right now to do the drop in tourism. In addition the room was shoddy; wi-Fi didn't work well, the air conditioning unit was so loud it was difficult to sleep, they gave me a room with a view of the parking lot. Twice I said something about my disappointment and in one case the management person just turned around and walked away. I don't think this hotel is representative of Marriott in general, but having run service organizations, it's in need of some different management.
