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

Fantastic five days in Jordan! · Jordan - May 3 - May 7, 2022

Traveler: Niamh D. - Local specialist: Samir Bishara

I recently did a five-day trip to Jordan as part of a group of four people with Nader as our driver. The trip was a great success due in no small way to having Nader as our driver and guide.

We were met promptly at the airport in Amman and all paperwork was completed without complication.

I recently did a five-day trip to Jordan as part of a group of four people with Nader as our driver. The trip was a great success due in no small way to having Nader as our driver and guide.

We were met promptly at the airport in Amman and all paperwork was completed without complication. From our first meeting, and throughout the entire trip, Nader was well informed and forthcoming on the history, geography, the general political landscape of the Middle East and current societal norms in Jordan. We felt immediately welcome and safe with Nader.

Our vehicle was comfortable, drinks were always available and Nader went out of his way to make sure that we tasted the best snacks and food that Jordan has to offer.

Checking in to each night’s accommodation was seamless due to Nader’s attention to every detail. He was there each morning waiting for us, and did not leave at night until we were fully settled in, and plans for the next day were clarified.

Nader’s warmth, sense of fun and desire to please added an extra layer to the trip which we, as a family group, really appreciated. Our memories are so much more than the amazing places that we visited because of Nader’s contribution. I would highly recommend Nader as a driver/guide and I thank him for making our holiday the wonderful success that it was.

I also thank the Samir and the tour company. Samir proposed an excellent itinerary, which covered all the sites we wanted to see, and was flexible in accommodating any requests for changes.

In addition, he showed us the perfect places to eat, helped us to connect with the locals and local culture and taught us so much about Jordan. I would highly recommend Emad without a doubt.
Overall an excellent trip and a great experience.

Overall, we really enjoyed the trip, the organization of it by the local specialist, Samir, and the driving and company of Majd, our main driver throughout the trip.

Every place was amazing so it is difficult to say which was best. For sure, Wadi Rum is unlike any other place we have seen. Roman ruins are not unique to Jordan, but Wadi Rum is. Petra was also a fascinating place.

Interacting with Jordanians was wonderful. They are so kind, helpful and welcoming. We were asked multiple times per day, by many people, whether we liked Jordan.

It was also interesting to see the range of hand-made goods for sale, from woven Bedouin cloth and handmade knives to the mosaic work.

Hotel Review

Fantastic location by the edge of the Dead Sea. We did not go for the resort experience but, rather, to spend some time in and beside the Dead Sea. The hotel had multiple options for eating as well as room service, of course. We upgraded our room to one which had a balcony overlooking the Sea which made our evening at the hotel that much more pleasant.

Tips for future travelers

Ask for a room with a balcony on a higher floor, overlooking the Sea.
