Description of Jordan cultural holiday, 4 days
This Jordan cultural holiday is a short break trip of three nights and four days, based in a hotel in Ammam, the capital city, throughout. And following a tailor made itinerary. With the services of a local, English speaking driver guide, you will be taken to see the archaeological wonders of Jerash, one of the finest remains of a Roman city in the world. That is on day two of the trip, followed by the great Petra UNESCO World Heritage site on day three.
You also have a chance to visit the Dead Sea, 400m below sea level and where you can float and take healing mud baths. You will stay at the Geneva Hotel in Ammam throughout the trip, with driver guides to take you in a private, air conditioned vehicle to all the sites each day. We also include a short horse ride at Petra in the price of the holiday, availability depending.
The price of this short break in Jordan includes airport transfers, three nights’ accommodation, breakfasts, transfers and excursions in itinerary and expert guides at Petra and Jerash.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
The whole trip was short but jam packed with things we wanted to do so the whole trip was amazing. But the whole team on the ground and the organisation by the local operator made everything truly memorable. Rashid our driver was brilliant - punctual, knowledgeable, helpful and kind.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Cash machines charge around £5 for a transaction so it might be better to take as much cash as you need before you go. Many main places accept visa but tips and souvenir stalls/cafes in Petra for example will need cash. There are cash machines readily available in Amman though. The food market in downtown Amman is also a
great place to visit, it's very busy but the locals are friendly and helpful - you will definitely need cash here!
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
You can directly help local people through tipping. I also feel this trip benefitted the local tourism agency's staff, who were all brilliant.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
One of our best holidays ever!! Our tour group was just our family (3 of us, all women). We felt safe and looked after the whole time.
PlanetWe promise to make your holiday to Jordan unforgettable but not at the expense of the environment or the local people. All tour guides in Jordan are responsible for ensuring that the guests understand the nature of the environment that they are in and minimize the impact that they may have.
We send detailed pre-departure information to our travelers upon booking their tour with us. This includes information on travelling responsibly and minimizing their impact on the local environment.
Our business is 'paper free'. Reservations are made by the internet. We do not have a 'glossy brochure' to sell our enterprise. We only advertise through our website, so We try to limit printing on paper and recycle as much as possible.
Through our environmental responsibility, all historical places visited are to be left as we found them without touching sites and dropping litter, and we always advise guests to conserve the environment and not to smoke at the historical sites. Moreover; our local staff are prevented from smoke during working hours. Also we decided not to use car horns excessively whilst driving. We try to reduce plastic waste.
PeopleOur sightseeing tours are operated and led by local guides. We use local drivers and all tour arrangements are made by local staff. In addition we use locally owned hotels and restaurants and all their staff are employed locally. Part of the entree fees to all Jordanian historical sites contributes to local conservation. Concerning local community, we use locally owned hotels and restaurants and their entire employees are local people.
We believe that the Responsible Travel concept has to be a two-way strategy with both the travelers and the local community gaining benefits. We benefit the local communities we visit using a wide scope of activities that have a positive impact on the local economy, directly by donating money to charity organizations, financially supporting some local communities and by recruiting employees who belonging to the local community. We encourage our guests to buy local products and make use of services that people local community offer. We help indirectly through capacity building projects we implement with our employees and through the experiences and culture exchanges that take place between the locals and the travelers during our tours.
