Starting and ending in Amman, the Jordan Highlights tour is a guided adventure tour that takes 13 days. You will travel through Amman, Wadi Rum, Madaba and 3 other destinations in Jordan. Jordan Highlights is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Discover ruins, the desert, symbolic sites and the best hospitality Jordan has to offer. Discover all the must see places on this tantalising journey including breathtaking archaeological treasures, Roman ruins, grand mosques and the delightful Desert Castles. At Um Qais we gain a sense of what Moses saw with views of the Jordan Valley, Golan Heights and the Sea of Galilee; and enjoy cooking a traditional meal with locals. The rose-red city of Petra is revealed through a narrow gorge, where you'll be awe struck by the structures that were carved into the soaring sandstone walls by the Nabataean civilization in the third century B.C. A short walk in the Dana Nature Reserve is preceded by our foray into the Wadi Rum, a spectacular desert landscape and the backdrop for our camel, jeep and foot explorations. In the south we relax on the beautiful shores of Aqaba at the Red Sea. Our final days include visits to the Baptism site of John the Baptist with some time to relax on the Dead Sea, Madaba known as the 'City of Mosaics' and Mount Nebo with its prized monastery.

“Everybody needs to go to Jordan! It was the 44th country Ive travelled to and definitely one of my favourites. The people, history and culture are all the reasons I will return to Jordan and the Middle East in future.”

“The sites were fantastic and the local guides wonderful. Petra was fascinating and the trek we took throughout the hills, city and Bedouin tents was both informative and interesting. Our guide was great. The walk up the river to the falls was fun and it was great to get wet in such a dry country! The night in the Bedouin camp and the trip in the desert gave us a real taste of the country. Our driver/guide provided here was excellent. Trips to the Jordan River and the Dead Sea were less interesting, however, we loved the accommodations. We found all the people we met to be friendly and helpful. All in all, a wonderful trip.”

  • Could you please send me the names of the hotels used and the Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum? Thanks!

    The hotels are dependent on the exact dates of travel, but the tour operator does maintain a standard level when it comes to selecting the hotels. Please let us know your preferred start date for the tour and we will enquire about which hotels are booked for that specific departure date.

    For this Jordan Highlights tour, we use good quality 3-star hotels, all twin share with private facilities. There is also a local homestay in Um Qais. Please do not expect the hotels to be of a western 3-star standard. In some towns the accommodation is basic but comfortable, clean, secure and all rooms with en suite bathrooms. Hotels are chosen for their location, cleanliness, and comfort.

    In Wadi Rum, guests stay in a standard, Bedouin-style tent with ensuite bathroom and fan. At the time of booking, for an additional supplement and subject to availability, it is possible to upgrade to a Martian Dome Tent with terrace, ensuite bathroom, and air‑conditioning. The Martian Dome Tents offer the unique experience of combined luxury and spectacular views.
