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

The service from Samir and our Guide Nader was absolutely outstanding!!! Samir was so accommodating and listened to all our requests for hotel changes and itinerary changes. He recommended the Petra Guest House, and after trekking throughout the ancient city, this was the best decision to stay here because the location was so great, right outside the visitors center! The Citadel at sunset was breathtaking looking over Amman.

We spent two nights glamping in Wadi Rum and the jeep safari was terrific. Wadi Rum was my favorite part of the stay. I hope to spend more time there in the future. You have to enjoy nature and silence to spend more than one night here.

My family loved every second of our stay in Jordan. We really did feel like family. Our guide Nader was not only informative, he made us feel safe. He gave us advice on places to eat, he helped us out when it came to bargaining while we shopped.

Nader made our trip one we will never forget. He was kind, caring, and patient with my family. My father got sick on our first day and he was very attentive, he got my father some tea and medicine to ease his stomach. Nader is a terrific driver as well, the Kings Way is absolutely beautiful but also a bit scary. He eased my mom's fear of heights.

My family said this was one if the best trips we ever had and the process was seamless. We would definitely recommend booking with Samir.
