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

I can't emphasize on awesome he was at this!

Our trip went off without a hitch, in part because of the private driver, Mohammed, that Samir set up for us for our whole vacation. He made changes with us along the way as we changed our minds about small details, and we always enjoyed his company and felt taken care of and safe.

Regarding our itinerary, my husband and I spent a total of two weeks in Jordan and we really did *everything*. I'd recommend taking that much time making sure you make the most of this beautiful historic place!

Here's some of things we did
- Historic sites (Jerash, Petra, Umm Qais, often with private guides)
- Outdoor adventuring (Make sure you do Wadi Al-Mujib!)
- Desert (desert castles, Wadi Rum)
- cultural experiences (cooking class, museums)

Thanks again for the perfect trip to Jordan, Samir!

Trekking from Dana to Feynan lodge

Jordan

One of the favorite days of our trip! Even though it was a long hot day, it really helped that the trail was all downhill. And our guide, a local Bedouin, was excellent! He was patient, funny, and cooked us a perfect meal on a campfire along the trail

Self Cooking Meal in Amman

We LOVED this and plan to add an experience like this to all our future trips! This was a great way to meet new friends, have a great meal, and learn more about the local culture.

Petra By Candle Light

Jordan

This is a great thing to do *IF* it's your very first view of Petra and the Treasury. The candlelight effect is really nice, and we got lucky enough to see the moon over the canyon, too. However, I wouldn't add this if you've already been to Petra :) all it is is a walk to the Treasury by candlelight, sitting on carpets and drinking a little tea, some local musicians, then shining floodlights on the Treasury building

Our local specialist, Nada, helped us plan our trip from A to Z. She had really good recommendations, travel advice and was extremely responsive. Our itinerary, driver's contact details, hotel information etc. was all provided well in advance with a lot of detail so we knew what to expect.
Our driver, Awni Naser, who was with us for 5 days carting us around the sights of Jordan was exceptional as well. Very knowledgeable and helped re-arrange our itinerary slightly based on our needs for an even better experience. He gave us excellent pointers during the entire trip.
Our Jordan trip included Amman, Kerak, Mt. Nebo, Jerash, Petra, Wadi Rum and Dead sea. Wadi Rum and Petra were the highlights for us. We stayed in a panoramic dome "tent" (in Aicha camp, highly recommend the accommodations and food here). Nada also organized a dinner for us with a local Petra family, which was nice to see how people in the area live. We highly recommend the Petra By Night tour, it is simple and quite magical.
Overall, we have nothing but good things to say about our trip - very well organized and executed. We will definitely book with KimKim again for our next adventure. 5 stars all around (would rate it higher than 5 stars if we could!). Thank you very much, Nada and Awni!

Toledo Hotel

Amman

The hotel and breakfast was good. However, they had separate days for men and women to use the pool. I understand the culture is different there but perhaps another hotel that doesn't have this rule would have been a better choice for us as travelers. After being out in the sun all day sight seeing, it would have been great for my husband and I to dip in the pool together to cool down.

We love this hotel. It was so comfortable and beautifully decorating. We were expecting more of a camping style stay here but this was definitely 5 star. Would recommend this to everyone. The breakfast and dinner were top notch - tons of variety and food to suit all palettes. We were also surprised with a complimentary star gazing activity. We weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and took our picture under the stars with his special camera. This turned out to be the best photo of our trip to Jordan! Thank you, Sultan!
