Jordan has a rich mix of attractions for today's traveller, with more variety and beautiful scenery than you may expect. The country's main highlight, and one of the world's must visit places, is of course the fascinating hidden city of Petra, which we always allow plenty of time to explore. Close by are the towering cliffs and rock formations amidst the desert at Wadi Rum, and also the coral reefs and fish of the Red Sea at Aqaba. Contrasting completely is the Dead Sea, in which swimming is a strange, surreal experience, and one not to be missed. Other highlights include the extensive Roman ruins at Jerash and mosaics at Madaba, the crusader castles at Kerak and Shobak, and the Baptism site at Bethany.
As well as its rich history and ancient monuments, Jordan also has some beautiful countryside, and we always try to include a drive up the scenic King's Highway between Petra and Amman, crossing the massively deep Wadi Mujib en-route. The forested hills north of Amman, close to Jerash and Ajloun Castle are also well worth a visit and time exploring. We also like to take our travellers into the desert to see the less visited 'Desert Castles' and desert nature reserves, and to Dana Nature Reserve near Petra.
Several of our tours that cover Jordan also take in time in Egypt, and we can tailor-make itineraries for you to fit any budget, accommodation level and personal interests.

We take responsible travel very seriously, and design and run our tours in as sustainable and responsible fashion as possible, while still giving you the holiday experience you are looking for. We are also very committed to supporting the local people in Egypt, Jordan and Syria who make these tours possible and try to ensure as much benefit from our trips stays in country as we can.
Following a significant improvement in the situation on the ground in Egypt and relaxation of official UK Foreign Office advice, we are delighted to be able to run tours throughout most of Egypt at the moment. The majority of our group tour program is running, as well as private & tailor-made options. A few geographical restrictions apply and some minor itinerary adjustments may be required.
