You'll start with the city of Amman, then tour the ruins at Jerash and archaeological sites at Madaba on the shores of the Red Sea. Follow the King's Highway to Kerak Castle, cycle through the Wadi Araba desert and camp under the stars, and see the famous monuments of Petra and sand dunes of Wadi Rum, all under your own steam.
Visit Jordan's most iconic destinations on this eight-day tour. You'll visit ancient Roman ruins in Amman and Jerash, then spend a full day wandering through the red city of Petra. The journey continues to the desert wilderness of Wadi Rum, where you'll gaze at the stars from a Bedouin camp. From here, you'll travel to Aqaba to swim and snorkel on the sunny Red Sea coast, ending the adventure with a float on the Dead Sea.
Five days makes a quick trip to Jordan, but it's enough time to hop between the country's southern highlights—a couple of hours of driving on well-maintained highways is all that separates Petra, the Dead Sea, and the desert wilderness of Wadi Rum. Active travelers can lean into Jordan's outdoor offerings with an itinerary filled with hiking, canyoning, and diving in the Red Sea. Yet another time-maximizing option? Pair Petra with a tour of Jerusalem and "Holy Land" sites in the West Bank.
On this outdoor-focused itinerary, you'll spend five days exploring Jordan's dramatic landscapes, from windblown deserts and living canyons to ancient cultures and Red Sea reefs. Go canyoning in Wadi Mujib, hike your way through Petra, and enjoy world-class snorkeling and diving off the shores of Aqaba. Spend two of your evenings gazing at the stars from traditional Bedouin camps in Little Petra and Wadi Rum.
On this five-day tour, experience the best highlights of Jordan. Arrive in Amman and head to the Dead Sea for some post-travel relaxation. Then, ride to Petra to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site and its beautiful canyons and rock formations. Next, take a day trip to the sand dunes of Wadi Rum, before heading back to Amman to do some sightseeing in the capital, along with a sendoff tour of the Jerash ruins.
This exciting Middle Eastern adventure gets to the heart of hospitable Jordan in just one week. Starting in the capital of Amman, you'll visit ancient Roman ruins, experience the UNESCO-listed sites of Petra and Wadi Rum, and see Byzantine mosaics in Madaba Archaeological Park.

Jordan: Amman, Petra and Wadi Rum - 4 Days · Jordan - Dec 24 - Dec 27, 2019
Overall, we were happy with the arrangements of our trip. Tamara was quick to respond and catered to our request. When we canceled our Petra by Night, Tamara immediately refunded the amount to us. In general, the guides hired at Petra and Jervash were knowledgeable and professional except our driver and guide at Wadi Rum. He just drove us to the destination and told us to just read the info and walk around ourselves. We stayed at night at a resort at the Dead Sea which wasn't... read more

Highly professional and extremely organized company. Tamara arranged a seamless 5 day trip with very short notice (last minute trip) and accommodated all my requests. I spent one night in Amman, a day in Jarash/Madaba/Mt Nebo, a day in Petra, and my final day visiting a crusader castle in Karak. My driver Mohamed Ali Hilalat was exceptional. He went out of his way to make sure my stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Always on time, a great conversationalist with a wealth of... read more

Hamzah my guide was super punctual and helpful.
Petra was the highlight and the whole 6 hours I spent there was tremendous
The Dead Sea was extraordinary 30% salt! Just dont get it in your eyes!
The Holiday Inn resort was well chosen
Wadi Rum spectacular - like Monument Valley but 10 times bigger!
BBG Lunch in the desert shade allowed time to reflect on my trip.
Super Jordan Memories. · Jordan - Oct 31 - Nov 5, 2019
Right from the booking of the trip, the ease of visa on arrival formalities at Amman airport, the hotel suggestions and till the time we were dropped at the Jordan - Israel land border, everything was excellent and well executed.
Our driver & guide Ismail was very courteous & professional. He definitely made our trip even better.
Tamara , our local specialist made sure that everything was perfectly planned and executed well.
Great job done by Tamara, Ismail & Team Kim Kim.

Wonderful experience, Tamara and Mohammad pampered us with a perfect professional service, everything running smoothly and even more.
The guides were very professional, careful and deeply in love with their country, which makes the real difference between a good service and a wondefrul experience.
Jordan · Jordan - Apr 18 - Apr 27, 2019
Overall, the trip was great despite a few major hiccups in communication among the agency and the driver. There was a bit of a discrepancy in terms of what we would consider 5-star hotels and what Jordan considers 5-star, as we got got a few noisy, hot rooms without some of the amenities. We were told there would be no problems going to Israel for the day during our time, but it was actually a very big problem and we spend most of the day stressed and in immigration because of mistakes in... read more
Jordan in 5 Days: Amman, Jerash, Mount Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea · Jordan - Apr 16 - Apr 21, 2019
Our trip to Jordan was very well organized by Tamara and Mohammad from Why Jordan operations. To top it all off our tour guide Mohammed Ali made this whole trip a memorable one. We were with our 2 yr old daughter and initially worried how it will be but he made everything very comfortable and catered to our needs. He made us feel at home and shared his vast knowledge about Jordan and his immense experience. Mohammed Ali went extra mile to give us the authentic experience of Jordan and honored... read more

Trip to Jordan · Jordan - Mar 22 - Mar 27, 2019
Our driver while in Jordon was Mohammad Althnibat, he was fantastic. We had unexpected health issues with one of our party and he was very supportive and helpful. He was always prompt and courteous. We went to Jerash and the tour guide there was Zehar, very knowledgeable and made the tour very good.
Our guide in Petra was Basil, we had trouble understanding him, which is too bad, he seemed to really know the area and was trying but we just didn't get any useful information. Our second day... read more
Trip to Jordan · Jordan - Mar 22 - Mar 27, 2019
Tamara and WhyJordan? gave us a magnificent vacation in Jordan. It's hard to know where to start because everything from planning to our trip was so seamless, and beyond our expectations.
As the 6 of us requested, this was a truly 5* trip from airport pick-up, to hotels, to excursions & experiences. Tamara chose 3 top hotels and we loved them all. Mohamed our driver throughout the trip listened and reacted to us, and made sure we had fun and learned. When my husband fell ill, Mohamed's... read more
Trip to Jordan · Jordan - Mar 19 - Mar 23, 2019
Why Jordan? Why not Jordan! What a wonderful trip we have just had to that exciting country.
From start (the booking) to finish ( saying goodbye to our experienced, eloquent, knowledgable guide, Mohammed) everything worked like clock work and nothing was too much trouble.
The people of Jordan are friendly , honest and always willing to help. The food was delicious especially the Kunafeh in downtown Amman!
The highlights are too many to mention them all so here are just a few;

Guide Raed was ultra attentive and helpful. Did have some trouble with my understanding his English sometimes, but we managed just fine.
Ayass hotel was great. Again, ultra friendly and solicitous staff, wonderful room. Too bad it is so far from downtown but taxi/Uber is inexpensive.
Aicha tent camp very elegant. Again good service.
Petra guest house rooms are weird; up and down stairs to get to room. Needed guide to find our room.
Local guides in Jerash and Petra spoke English well. All we... read more
Jordan in 7 Days - Amman, Jerash, Mt Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba and the Dead Sea · Jordan - Feb 10 - Feb 17, 2019
Jordan was exhilarating, the itinerary was perfect, well scheduled and planned. Two more days in Petra would be fantastic, but that will have to be for another time. Special mention to our driver/guide and friend, Hasheem 'Petra', and to Why?jordantours for this unforgettable adventure.
Jordan: Amman, Petra and Wadi Rum - 4 Days · Jordan - Jan 5 - Jan 9, 2019
To begin with Tamara and the Why Jordan team did a comprehensive and very professional service from itinerary to drop off at the airport. At no time did we feel unsure of procedures or plans for the next day which is in direct contrast to our experience in Egypt.
Our driver/guide Mohamed Ali was all you could ask for. His attention to detail, protectiveness to our family, detailed explanations of sites and customs and flexibility to our whims throughout is a great credit to your company... read more
Ultimate Guide to Visiting Petra - Jordan's Ancient City · Jordan - Dec 27 - Jan 1, 2019
Our trip to Jordan was perfect. Every detail was taking care of by Tamara and her team. We were taking care of from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. No complaints at all. It was a wonderful trip from start to end thanks to the detailed planning and assistant from Tamara and her wonderful guides. Loved it. Highly recommend.
Trip to Jordan · Jordan - Nov 16 - Nov 19, 2018
Tamara was an excellent specialist - she worked within our budget, and made sure we saw all the sights we wanted to in Jordan. I was impressed with the itinerary, and loved every one of our drivers. Our hand-offs were smooth, and all of the drivers and guides were incredible! Other than the hotel in Petra (which was just old) the lodging at each stop was fantastic. Tamara even accommodated a last minute change to our arrival time, without blinking an eye. She was amazing, and I was so happy we went with KimKim!
Day tour of Petra · Jordan - Nov 23 - Nov 23, 2018
The process of booking was easy. But I was very disappointed in the tour. While the tour of Petra was a must-do, the price for the experience was not equal to the value. Our guide was nice and pleasant and stayed with us 2.5 hours. She connected us to a young friend to provide rides up the mountain. After she left, he tried to scam for more money. We finished our walk up and down ourself. The price of entry to the park, 2.5 hours of tour and a buffet lunch did not really equal the $185 in value.
I will not recommend this tour to any others.
Trip to Jordan · Jordan - Oct 16 - Oct 21, 2018
We used Why Jordan travel agency based in Petra through KimKim. When you arrange a holiday where you are reliant on the tour operator for your driver and guides you put yourself totally in their hands.
Tamara from Why Jordan worked with us to plan the 6 day trip across Jordan taking in Jerash, Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea. It was a whistle stop tour and every step of the way the events unfolded as previously planned. From the reception at the airport including sorting the visas to our... read more
Trip to Jordan · Jordan - Oct 20 - Oct 24, 2018
We did a Jordan and Jerusalem 4 day trip and it was amazing! Tamara was very patient with us as we had her change things to make the trip exactly how we wanted. We flew in and arrived late on Saturday night and were delivered to our hotel where we did dinner on our own. The next morning breakfast was included and then our driver Talal picked us up and spent the next four days with us. We toured Amman where Talal bought us Turkish coffee and coffee cookies that we enjoyed before touring... read more
Jordan and Israel · Jordan - Aug 4 - Aug 18, 2018
My partner and I had the most amazing trip to Jordan and Israel. Everything was seamless... from meet and greet at the borders to great accommodation to wonderful private guides at all the key sites. We had looked at doing a group tour and decided to book a completely private tour on the Jordan side, and a mix of day tours and group tours in Israel. You get the peace of mind of a perfectly organised trip created by a local expert, great local guides, and with the independence of a private... read more
Trip to Jordan · Jordan - Sep 4 - Sep 8, 2018
We had a wonderful in Jordan thanks to Mohammed (our guide), Tamara (our travel agent), and KimKim. We hit the major sites: Petra, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea and they did not disappoint. We couldn't have wished for a better trip. Our driver/guide, Mohammed was the man! He made the experience fun, informational, and authentic. The trip was the perfect blend of site-seeing, adventure, not too much traveling, amazing food, etc. Highly recommend!
Trip to Jordan · Jordan - Jul 31 - Aug 4, 2018
Two things I have to say: thank you and amazing!
The best thing of all, the people I interacted with: Tamara, Mohammad and Tito!
I usually do my own travel planning and booking, this time I booked a last minute trip to Jordan and I am more than happy I got to be connected via kimkim to the Why Jordan Tours team, from the first moment I got contacted by Tamara I knew that all I had to do was to leave it all to the experts and begin to enjoy my trip.
Tamara was incredibly helpful, despite the... read more
Highlights of Jordan: 6 Days · Jordan - Jul 22 - Jul 27, 2018
I enjoyed the private Jordan tour and all Tamara’s hard work putting it together at the last minute. Her flexibility and helpfulness along the way were most important, answering my numerous questions, and ensuring I had non-smoking hotel rooms and a driver I could speak to.
The disappointments were mostly due to a lack of research on my part and even so were far outweighed by the positives. I would and will recommend your agency, driver Ala’a (the very cool, smart Aloosh), the Ramada Dead... read more
Jordan in 7 Days - Amman, Jerash, Mt Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba and the Dead Sea · Jordan - Jul 18 - Jul 25, 2018
My driver was excellent, reliable punctual and knowledgable.
Petra was amazing and I wish I had scheduled more time there.
Dont be put off by going in July, it was no hotter than the UK was this summer and the place was empty of tourists.
Good choices for veggie food.
A few days in Jordan · Jordan - Jul 5 - Jul 9, 2018
It was incredibly helpful to have kimkim to arrange this trip. It was in between heavy work travel and I needed something to do on personal time, but I did not have the bandwidth to arrange such a complicated trip by myself. Having an English-speaking driver as well as guides at Petra and Wadi Rum was enormously helpful. They were all flexible and resourceful. I was also pleased about how easy it was to customize elements of my trip, particularly choosing and using miles to book... read more
Jordan in 5 Days: Amman, Jerash, Mount Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea · Jordan - Jun 6 - Jun 10, 2018
I could write a book or a love song about My trip to the Jordan, a story and a song that will forever remain in my heart,
The trip started with kind Tamara who knew what I wanted and the places I wanted to visit, between Jerash, Wadi Rum, PETRA, and the Dead Sea,
At the Queen Alia airport, I was met with gentleman who had a sign with my name on it waiting for me, (sincere apologies don’t remember his name) in no time he arranged for my Visa, got my luggage and out of the airport,... read more

I want to say BIG Thank you to my wonderful agent Tamara, who I was happy to meet in Jordan, she did a excellent job to organize my trip.
