What travelers say about kimkim

Reviews from kimkim travelers who recently returned from their adventures

Make the most of your trip to 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 suggested itineraries 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).

Jordan Travel Insights

Top 10 Must-Do Activities While in Jordan

Planning a trip to Jordan? Here's a list of the top ten activities to help give you an idea of great things to do. We've focused on unique things to do in Jordan that provide you with a more authentic experience.

When is the Best Time of Year to Visit Jordan?

Jordan is a year-round destination, but there are seasonal weather variations that travelers should be aware of. Spring and fall have the most predictable, pleasant temperatures and are therefore peak travel seasons. Winter tends to be rainy and unpredictable - it even snows in some places. Summer brings hot temperatures, but longer daylight hours allow travelers to use cooler early morning hours to explore Jordan's world-class sights.

Highlights of Jordan & Israel: 9 Days

From the Rose City of Petra to the shores of the Dead Sea, enjoy nine days of exploration in Jordan and Israel on this comprehensive tour. With a curated focus on the area's most fascinating highlights, you'll hit all of the cultural sights and natural wonders that make this region a timeless and sought-after destination.

Jordan: Amman, Petra and Wadi Rum - 4 Days

Have limited time, and want to see Jordan's highlights in a few days? Experience a perfect snapshot of Jordan's rich history and stunning natural beauty on this 4-day, 3-night journey. This efficient itinerary packs quite a punch, balancing extensive exploration of the ancient city of Petra with a mellow evening camping in the ancient desert of Wadi Rum.

How Many Days Should You Spend in Jordan?

Jordan is a compact country, roughly the size of Ireland, with more than its fair share of must-see sites. Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea are all world-renowned attractions and are located within just a few hundred miles of each other. This, combined with the fact that Jordan’s roads are of excellent quality, means that it’s possible to see all of Jordan’s top spots in about 3 days. This doesn’t mean that we recommend spending 3 days only, since there is a lot more to see, and the top sites are worth spending more time at than just a quick visit.

Petra

Jordan in 7 Days - Amman, Jerash, Mt Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba and the Dead Sea

Perfect for travelers ready for a full week of adventure, this 7 day, 6 night itinerary prioritizes Jordan's best-loved landmarks. You'll bask in the beauty of the Dead Sea, take in panoramic views from the temples of Petra, and camp in Wadi Rum's desert wilderness, finally returning home with a satisfying slice of the country's rich heritage.

Dana to petra trek - hiking from dana to petra in jordan - 9 days, Jordan - Jan 1 - Jan 11, 2018

Traveler: Cynthia M. - Local specialist: Andy Nurse

Ibrahim in Jordan was a fantastic guide and Mohammed was a great driver. They worked well together. We like our history so Jerash was fabulous. The hike through Dana Valley also was a highlight as was Jerusalem. Re the design of the trip, the only dud day was the trip to the Dead Sea. The hotel where we had lunch was depressing and the beach was ugly and cordoned off with barb wire.

Petra (and petra in the nght-light up), jeep tour in wadi rum, jerash, mt. nevo,madaba, amman, dead sea canyons, Jordan - Sep 30 - Oct 3, 2017

Traveler: Lawrice S. - Local specialist: Bianca Abma

This was one of the best trips I have been on. So well organised. 5 start accommodation and service. The guide we had was so friendly and helpful. The taxi drivers were friendly and very helpful too. I would recommend this tour and company to anyone who wants the best in Jordan.

Bianca did every she could to get the best tour together for my team. I changed the plan/days multiple times and Bianca continued to help us get the best price and experience out of it.

Dana to petra trek - hiking from dana to petra in jordan - 9 days, Jordan - Sep 24 - Oct 3, 2017

Traveler: William T. - Local specialist: Tala Dabain

My compliments to all the support staff. From Abdullah our Bedouin guide to all the drivers, cooks and Wilderness Camp workers, they were all very kind, helpful and attentive to our comfort and safety

As for me, being an older, slower and more deliberate hiker, I found the terrain and heat more than I have ever experienced on previous hikes. I would like to do that trek over 10 days instead of 5 but that would be difficult from a logistical point of view. I was able to walk 2/3 of the trail... read more

My compliments to all the support staff. From Abdullah our Bedouin guide to all the drivers, cooks and Wilderness Camp workers, they were all very kind, helpful and attentive to our comfort and safety

As for me, being an older, slower and more deliberate hiker, I found the terrain and heat more than I have ever experienced on previous hikes. I would like to do that trek over 10 days instead of 5 but that would be difficult from a logistical point of view. I was able to walk 2/3 of the trail but was happy to have the donkey or truck for the other 1/3. Gratefully, Mahadi was understanding and never made me feel that I was a burden.

Of course, the last 2 days, the hike to Little Petra and then to Petra were the highlight. Other than Machu Pichu I have never experienced anything like the hike from the Monastery and through the Siq to the Treasury. It was truly magnificent. The hardship of the trek was worth all that I learned about Jordan and its' people and customs. We all came away with a much greater understanding of the Middle East and the peaceful religion of Islam. It is very unfortunate that many politicians, for their own gain, paint Islam with a terrorist brush. It would be a better world if more Americans had the same experience we had.

There is a possibility that I will be returning to Jordan next April to work with a medical team at the Syrian Refugee Camp near Amman and I told Mahadi I would contact him and we would have a cup of tea together

Best regards
Bill Tedesco
