Jordan Travel Information

Jordan is a country rich with history and beauty. Since they’re so iconic, Jordan tours inevitably involve a visit to the Dead Sea and Petra, but visitors are also pleasantly surprised by the amazing international food recipes of Amman and the modern cities they can visit.

Although small, the country has been at the center of some of the most historic trade routes for centuries. The Roman, Greek, Persian, Nebataean, and Byzantine Empires have all ruled over this area, each leaving behind unique and grand artifacts that you can still find, meaning history boffins will find plenty to write home about.

Jordan Tours

Jordan is a country rich with history and beauty. Since they’re so rich with iconic sights, Jordan tours inevitably involve a visit to the Dead Sea and Petra, but visitors are also pleasantly surprised by the amazing international food recipes of Amman and the modern cities they can visit.

Although small, the country has been at the center of some of the most historic trade routes for centuries.

Jordan tours don’t just involve these ancient wonders, however. Today, Jordan is a modern and welcoming country, full of friendly people who are more than eager to show you how they live and why they call this beautiful desert home. You’ll come to experience a country that was part of many of the world’s greatest empires, but you’ll want to stay for the lingering smell of coffee in the streets, the delicious food and the arresting hospitality of the locals.

Best time of the year to visit Jordan?

Jordan may be small, but it packs a punch in terms of its climate. In Amman you can expect snow in the winter, while in high summer temperatures can soar to over 35 degrees. The best time to visit is in Spring (between March and May) and Autumn (September to November). The weather in Jordan during these months is relatively cool, but still pleasant.

Food and Culture of Jordan

Be sure to start your morning on Jordan tours with a traditional Levantine-Arab breakfast of Manakish. This pita bread is typically covered in the tart za’atar spice and served along with fresh vegetables like cucumbers and tomatoes. Be sure to also try the falafel, and maybe even the maqlouba. Literally translated to “upside-down”, maqlouba is a dish traditionally made out of rice, chicken, eggplant, and other vegetables all cooked in a large pot and flipped upside-down to be served with pita bread. You also can’t miss the Arabic coffee on offer, the scent of which wafts through the streets continually.

Tradition and religion are extremely important in Jordanian society, but this is a country that more and more frequently has to grapple with rapid modernization and globalization. It’s one of the Arab World’s most cosmopolitan city, which is reflected in the views and lifestyle choices of the younger generations.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Jordan

Jordan tours attract millions of people every year. The vast majority of these will involve  visit to Petra. Petra is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and a UNESCO World Heritage site. This ancient city was carved into the side of a rose-tinted sandstone cliff between the 6th and 4th Century B.C. It was once the capital of the Nebataean Empire and, as you’d imagine from such illustrious beginnings (and current acclaim), the site is nothing short of breathtaking.

Best of all, arriving to Petra is only the tip of the iceberg – the journey is every bit as interesting. Entering from the east, you must first traverse the Siq, which is a narrow gorge that’s only 3-4m wide at some points. If this sounds like too much effort, you can take a camel there. Jerash is similarly memorable, and well worth a visit.

Such is the diversity on offer in Jordan that once you’ve finished with this cultural and historical tour, you can relax in the Dead Sea in an idyllic beach setting. The Dead Sea is roughly 9 times saltier than a normal ocean. This creates a buoyancy which makes it difficult to do anything other than take a leisurely float on its surface.

If you’ve finished relaxing and are after a slice of Jordan’s nightlife, you could do much worse than to visit Amman. This city was established in 7,000 B.C. and still hosts a population of around 2 million people. It’s a unique blend of the old and the new, with crumbling buildings a stone’s throw from modern skyscrapers. Be sure to wander the narrow alleyways, enjoy the delicious coffee available in the local cafes and, at nighttime, downtown Amman is home to a number of shisha bars and nightclubs you can explore.

I was late in organising this trip in Jordan, but Carmen managed to have everything ready for us on time.
She seems to know the options in Jordan really well and we had a great time without a hitch.

David Offord, February 2017

Carmen was very responsive to our requests for places to visit and worked up an excellent itinerary which we thoroughly enjoyed which made it a memorable trip. Thank You

Poobalan Naidoo, January 2017

All accommodation and drivers were arranged by Carmen. Rearranged trip owing to flight delays on two occasions. Very accommodating and proffessional.

Jane Asher, November 2016

I was so impressed to receive a response from Carmen within minutes of sending a request to Trip.me. Carmen was very helpful in every respect. She made very good suggestions for how we would organize our holiday. Her attention to detail and her professionalism were top drawer.
I had never heard of Trip. Me before so I was a bit nervous with proceeding, however, the communication between Carmen and myself was reassuring. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to others.
Being from Canada, a lot of my family and friends were concerned for my safety while in Jordan. I can honestly say that I have never felt safer. The people of Jordan are so friendly and helpful. Our driver Ahmed was fantastic and caring and the guides chosen for us ( Hartim in Petra and Wafa for Bethany and Amman )were so knowledgeable and pleasant.
The hotels chosen for us were great and the food was exceptional throughout our trip with the most delicious meal coming from the Al Quasor Hotel on Amman. That meal was gormet.
More people from North America should visit Jordan. I am truly amazed by the huge vistas.
