Description of Short tour of Jordan

This short tailor made tour of Jordan whisks you around the country’s top sites in a mere three days. You’ll take in Jerash, one of the best preserved Roman cities in the world, and drive along the King’s Highway, a winding road that passes through desert, mountains and ancient sites. Your drive will take you to the site of the Tomb of Moses and the Crusader castle of Kerak before reaching the legendary lost city of Petra.

After exploring Petra’s incredible rock cut tombs and temples, you’ll take a jeep tour through the desert of Wadi Rum before heading for the Dead Sea, where there will be plenty of opportunity to float in the water and try out healing powers of Dead Sea mud. Then there’s just enough time for a city tour of Amman, before flying home the next day.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

We are committed to trying to reduce, re-use and recycle as much waste as is possible, wherever we are. We review and update our responsible travel policies on a regular basis because we know there's always more we could be doing. We aim to achieve both in our office and out on the road.

In offices:
• All paper products we use in the office are recycled, from paper to envelopes.
• We print on both sides of the paper whenever it is appropriate.
• We try to reduce what we print by using email and online media for internal and external communication wherever possible.
• We recycle as much as we can, from paper to plastics, glass, cardboard, and metal.

On the Road:
• We communicate with our crew online - reducing postage and printing.
• We recycle wherever possible, often supporting informal projects with local people collecting materials for recycling.
• Our crew encourage travellers to minimise plastic drinks bottle consumption.
• When cooking whilst camping, we generally use gas instead of wood. It’s a cleaner fuel and this way we don’t deplete valuable local natural resources.

The Impacts of this Trip

We provide authentic, experience-rich holidays to responsible and discerning travellers through our community-based ecotourism initiatives to ensure that local economies benefit from our business.

Our Eco-experiences serve community projects like the Wadi Musa Women cooperative, offering those who take their holiday in Jordan the chance to experience what is beyond the archaeological sites, they also get the chance to shop locally made handicrafts from local cooperatives, eat with local families or at local restaurants, use local transport, utilise the services of local tour guides and sleep at local properties.

A percentage of the profit from each tour booked with us goes straight towards encouraging and implementing positive change in our community – whether that be creating and giving out food parcels, assisting with building shelters for working animals or our beautiful handicrafts, we are actively looking for new ways to have a positive impact on the community that has given us so much.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Our itinerary and needs were met. Our guide was excellent.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Stay in a nice hotel in Dead Sea. Spend 2 nights in Petra and truly explore this magical hidden city. If using the carriage book them at the gate. Using the donkey to climb to the Monastery can be dangerous and scary. Wear comfy shoes. Wear a swimming shoes at the Dead Sea

Best Bits:
Our travel needs were met as per required. Fadi, our guide was awesome and going the extra mile on anticipation of needs, birthday cake in Wadi Rum.

Tips: More days in Petra to experience the true beauty of the ancient city. By foot is highly recommended as opposed to donkey or carriage ride. Therefore walking shoes are highly recommended. To enjoy the Dead Sea and pamper yourself. A nice hotel with a good spa is a must. And swimming shoes is also a must.

Simply awesome. Value for money. Memories to cherish for lifetime.
