On Your Travels
Are you looking for the best Jordan tours?
Our 7 night escorted holiday to Jordan includes 2 nights in Amman, 3 nights in Petra and 2 nights in the Dead Sea for relaxing at the end.
Petra will be the highlight of your trip - it is a big site, and so 3 nights here is definitely preferable.
Instead of Aqaba which is best for diving, we travel up to the Dead Sea after visiting the desert of Wadi Rum. Enjoy relaxing on the beach, floating in the Dead Sea, free mud treatments, exceptional food and great weather.
Tip: You can extend your stay in Jordan by adding a few extra nights at the Dead Sea. Typical is 2 , but we have customers that add an extra week to make a 2 week Jordan tour and beach stay.
The picture at the bottom is one I took at the entrance to Petra which will probably be the highlight of your stay in Jordan. It normally takes about 20 minutes to walk down the siq to get to the entrance. Of course a horse and carriage can do it in about 10 minutes (definitely worthwhile for the thrill!) but we stopped so many times to take photographs that it took about an hour!
And so here is one of the things about escorted Jordan tours, or indeed an escorted tour in any country. Is it best to do it this way, or is it best to be more independent? For us, we would have annoyed the group too much with all the hundreds of photographs we took, so to be honest an escorted tour for us is probably not best. So we did the trip on a private basis - it costs more, but you do get much more flexibility firstly on the Jordan tours itineraries, and second when you're actually in Jordan.
So if you wanted say just 2 nights in Petra, or an overnight in Wadi Rum then no problem - it is your holiday and you can design it as it is.
And when you are there in Jordan, you don't have to worry about anyone else - if you want to spend an hour taking photographs then you can!
Just remember it will be more expensive - the escorted group tours of Jordan are actually exceptional value because of theb group rates that we get, and you get a tour guide throughout - but the private tours offer more individual flexibility.
