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

Traveler: Joyce B. - Local specialist: Samir Jawabra

Everything was great but I will mention 2 things. The driver on the first day booked me on a ‘boat tour with lunch and swimming and snorkelling’ out of Aqaba (I had told him that I would love to go snorkelling). It was a disaster, do not recommend again. I was the only one on the whole boat going in the water, there is no reason to snorkel as there is absolutely nothing to see…total waste of time!

Everything was great but I will mention 2 things. The driver on the first day booked me on a ‘boat tour with lunch and swimming and snorkelling’ out of Aqaba (I had told him that I would love to go snorkelling). It was a disaster, do not recommend again. I was the only one on the whole boat going in the water, there is no reason to snorkel as there is absolutely nothing to see…total waste of time!
The Hotel Kempinski was wonderful, recommendation from the driver to dive with Aqaba Shark diving and Talal was a wonderful experience. Thanks.
The driver that picked me up for my flight back to Amman arrived early, had not been to the airport in over 2 years so not quite sure where to go. He dropped me in a parking spot from where I could not see an entrance. There was nothing happening. The first set of doors that I found, no one there, the nest set were locked. Finally, I followed another van coming in and walked to where they were and found the departures entrance. Nothing was open. I was picked up at 3:15 pm for a 6:25 pm flight and the airport was not even staffed until after 5:15pm. I should have stayed at the hotel and I should have had a driver that knew where the entrance was. I realize that tourism is just reopening but I do think that these two things could easily be improved. Thanks for organizing, thanks for listening. I very much enjoyed my 11 days in Jordan.
