Jordan Vacation

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.

Your Jordan Holiday will leave you wanting more as you take part in the traditional foods of falafels and maqluba and sip delectable coffee, and later, dine under a canopy of the Wadi Rum desert stars. Jordan is a perfect getaway for history buffs and families alike yearning to see some of the most iconic parts of the Middle East.

Jordan Vacation

Jordan Travel Information

Travel to Jordan

Historic Cities

Round trips in Jordan typically start and end in the nation’s capital, Amman. This colorful, lively city is full of historic sites like the Roman Amphitheater and the Citadel, both of which can be seen by visitors going on Jordan guided tours. Take a stroll downtown and purchase souvenirs from the bazaar or sample some delicious Middle Eastern foods.

Want to get outside the hustle and bustle of the city? Take a quick jaunt to Jerash, the ‘Pompeii of the East’, to explore the wonders of this Greco-Roman city, built over 2,000 years ago. And, just 73 kilometers from Amman, explore the brick passageways, towers, and staircases of the Ajloun Castle where you can sleep in the nearby Ajloun Forest Cabins.

Ancient Desert Treasures

Later, take a breathtaking drive on the King’s Highway, one of the Middle East’s most scenic and ancient roads that is 280 kilometers long. The King’s Highway was once a trade route and has left history in its wake. On this road, you’ll visit 6th-century mosaics, churches, Crusader Castles, and Mount Nebo, the memorial site to Moses.

As you enjoy the wonders and beauties of the King’s Highway, prepare yourself for the adventures of the Wadi Rum desert, also known as the ‘Valley of the Moon’. Go for a jeep ride to see the highlights of the desert like the Nabataean inscriptions and Lawrence of Arabia’s house. See rock skyscrapers and formations and eat an authentic Bedouin meal under the light of the stars.

For history buffs, customize your trip to see the remarkable Pyramids of Giza and the treasures of King Tutankhamen. Wave at locals as you cruise down the Nile on a ship set to Kom Ombo, and on your way, visit the Temple of Sobek and the Horus Temple of Edfu.

A majority of trips to Jordan also offer the exciting opportunity to see the iconic Nabataean city of Petra, one of Jordan’s key tourist places that have been named one of the ‘new Seven Wonders of the World’ and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The way you arrive at the Rose City is your call. Travel by horseback or trek on foot through the Siq or Petra’s backdoor.

A Water-Filled Vacation

Take your time discovering the desert treasures Jordan is home to, but for those looking for a splash in their trip, explore the waters at the South Beach in Aqaba where you can swim alongside exotic fish and gaze at the colorful coral reefs. Take private diving tours for an underwater visit to the Cedar Pride Shipwreck and the Hercules Airplane Wreck. Later, find your way to the lowest point on earth – the Dead Sea – and relax in a warm mud bath.

For those longing for a mixture of a water and hiking-filled vacation, trek through the Mujib Gorge. Splash water on your face and neck as you wade upstream through the river in the rock trench and climb up smaller waterfalls on your way to the grand waterfall.

Jordan tours have something for everyone. Whether you enjoy hiking, swimming, relaxing, or learning about history, this is a perfect trip for you. Exploring this beautiful country is something you’ll never forget and you have complete control as you book your holiday today.

About Jordan trips

A Historic Nation

Jordan is a small nation in the Middle East known for its ancient artifacts, history, and beauty.  The nation has a primarily Arabic culture; however, its history has made it a modern and European-touched country today. Jordan was ruled by Roman, Greek, Persian, Nabataean, and Byzantine empires for hundreds of years. Today, the rule of these empires has left their marks with ancient ruins like Jerash and the Crusader Castles.

Though less than 35,000 square miles, there seems to be something to see in each corner of the nation that makes any short or long trip to it perfect. Sprinkled throughout the nation are iconic sites such as Petra, the Ajloun Castle, and the Temple of Hercules that date back to thousands of years ago. In Amman, the capital of Jordan, visitors can tour exciting places like the Citadel or shop at the bustling souks which are the Arabic marketplaces.

Outside of the city, Jordan tours take you for a ride in the desert to see rock canyons, Lawrence of Arabia’s house and give you an exotic meal under the stars in the Wadi Rum desert. And though known for its deserts and dry climate, the west side of Jordan’s borders is an oasis that traces the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan River, and the Dead Sea. Add a splash to your Middle Eastern vacation by scuba diving at the South Beaches in Aqaba, floating in the Dead Sea, and relaxing on the warm Arabic shores.

Private Tours in Jordan

The best way to see this history-filled Middle Eastern country is through a private company that assists you in packing all the exciting adventures in that Jordan has to offer, while also giving you a relaxed vacation. Jordan private tours offer visitors a chance to dive into this historic country and adjust their schedule to fit their perfect idea of a holiday.

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.

We were extremely pleased w/the care & details that were arranged for us every step of our journey there & back home. The peace of mind was priceless!!!

Rita T., September 2018

Mohamed's knowledge of our destination and his expert recommendations was the foundation of a trip that EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS!!!!! I do not use these words often or without careful consideration, but really and truly from the moment we landed in Cairo until our return flight everything we were promised happened and more! I would have been very happy if what we were promised was delivered, but trip.me and Mohammed went above and beyond.

Lauren De V., September 2018

Gail did an excellent job in hearing out our wishes and setting up a program that fitted us well (such as budget and less touristic places). She thought about public holidays, and what excursion to do best on a certain day to avoid the crowd. She replies incredibly fast and has no problem changing the program until there's a full match with your wishes. The pick ups with the drivers were always good and in every hotel the vouchers were ready. The trip was well organised so everything went very smoothly.
