Description of Jordan small group holiday

This wonderful week in Jordan takes you on a round trip from Amman as part of a small guided group (average 10 people). The advantages of travelling as a group is not only do you get to meet like-minded travellers from around the world but you also benefit from the local knowledge of a passionate group leader. Jordan is a fascinating country and experiencing the ancient sites and natural wonders in the presence of newfound friends and local people is a real privilege, and sets this tour apart from the rest of the pack.

Travelling overland you’ll get to experience an incredible arrangement of ancient and natural highlights starting with the Jordanian capital city before moving swiftly on to the coastal town of Aqaba via the Desert Highway.

Aqaba is well known for its snorkelling potential so there’s every opportunity for your group to hit the beach before continuing to follow in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia as you head for Wadi Rum. Bedding down in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum is an exciting prospect and as you fall asleep under a blanket of stars anticipation levels are sure to rise as you prepare for Petra, the rose red city in the sand.

Entering Petra via the Siq allows you to catch a glimpse of Jordan’s crown jewel as she would have first been seen by traders centuries ago. Exploring the citadel and climbing up to the monastery with your guide allows for greater understanding of one of the world’s most enduring ancient wonders.

Crusader castles and Roman ruins await on the final leg of this small group holiday as you return to Amman via Jerash which is thought by many to hold some of the world’s greatest examples of Greco-Roman architecture. Completing your Jordan adventure with a calming float on the Red Sea caps off a week in the Middle East that will live in the memory long after the tan finally fades.

Many Jordanian hotels and operators provide plastic bottles of water, making it easy to use plastic excessively, especially given the hot climate. However, we encourage our travellers to buy a large 5-10 litre bottles to refill their smaller ones. We are working with our suppliers to encourage them to do the same.

Water conservation is a hot topic in Jordan, as it’s one of the driest countries in the world. Our trained tour leaders are well versed in advising travellers on initiatives to manage water consumption, and we are working with our suppliers to encourage better management of this precious commodity. This may be by way of water refilling opportunities in hotels and more signage to encourage water conservation practices. We encourage our travellers to take short showers and to never leave the tap water running unnecessarily.

As part of our responsible travel philosophy we use local forms of transport wherever possible. Where this is not possible we endeavour to ensure we are using private transport suitable for our small groups. For example, minivans instead of large coaches or buses. We will always ensure that the vehicles is an appropriate size to suit the group size. For instance, we wouldn’t use a 16-seater van if we only have five people travelling with us. We also try to ensure the vast majority of our included and optional activities (such as walking the Roman ruins of Jerash, floating in the Dead Sea, exploring Petra or an Amman city walking tour) have a carbon-free footprint.

The Impacts of this Trip

This trip is run by our own local Jordanian operator who shares our commitment to responsible travel, from waste and water management to ensuring we leave as minimal a footprint as possible. Our local team are trained on our global responsible travel policies and practices.

An important part of travel is mixing with the locals and experiencing real life in a destination. On this trip we stay only in locally owned hotels or guesthouses that are locally staffed, enabling the money you spend to stay within that community. We source local activities that we believe are sustainable to the economy in that they allow the flow of income from visitors to be distributed to a greater audience, rather than remain concentrated with tourism providers. This could be as simple as a meal in a small local restaurant, a home-cooked meal, or staying in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum.

We also use only Jordanian leaders, drivers and local guides. Where meals are provided, ingredients will be sourced from a local market when possible.
All aspects of this trip (on the ground) are operated by local Jordanians including all of our leaders, drivers, local site guides and accommodation providers. We provide our leaders with a formal five-day training so that they are up to speed with the needs of our travellers and have the most up-to-date skill sets.

Locals know where the best food, souvenirs, local crafts and entertainment can be found. This trip is operated by local Jordanians and we ensure any shopping opportunities, from the larger cities like Amman and Aqaba to the small villages outside of Wadi Rum are authentic, showcasing Jordan's inspiring and unique culture and crafts.

Our philosophy is to act local and that means respecting the local traditions. For instance, women will be required to wear a headscarf when appropriate and that both men and women are conservatively dressed, with arms and legs covered. We also take care to form genuine and mutually beneficial relationships with local people. An excellent example of this is in the remote Bedouin desert camp stay, where we get a taste of what it’s like to live like a Bedouin, eat local food and sleep under the stars.

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


It is quite difficult to pick one moment or experience, Jordan is an amazing country which just gives and gives. The sounds, sights and people combine to make it unique: from the desert to the bustling town with historical sites interspersed, modern and ancient are part of it all. Learning from our local group leader - the stories of history explained from the other side - opened our eyes to so much. Thoroughly loved each moment and was sad to say goodbye

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


Make sure your footwear is comfortable over all terrains. Layers are vital as temperatures vary depending on location.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes to benefiting local people. Reducing environmental impacts and supporting conservation are harder to quantify although several of our group participated in collecting plastic rubbish in a couple of locations which seemed to please the local people we were with at that time, notably the Bedouin in the desert.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Wonderful - recommending to others.

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


This is a hard question as there were so many fantastic parts including Petra and Wadi Rum but I think the city of Jerash was a real surprise to me. The scale of the ancient city was astonishing and absolutely worth a visit. Jerash alone was worthy of a full day I think.

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


I would say pack layers. It was really cold during our trip. We knew this from the weather forecast but it still surprised us. It is really cold at night in the desert so pack appropriately. My other advice would be read up on your history if you're not already a history buff or biblical scholar. I think having a deeper understanding of the role the places you visit on this holiday played in world history and religion will add another dimension to your visit. I certainly appreciated the biblical references from my Sunday School days.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes and no. I felt that we supported local hotels and restaurants and tours and it was an affordable trip. We also had the opportunity to support local businesses when buying souvenirs etc. I also think that we tried to limit our personal environmental impact by not drinking bottled water where possible and using a canvas bag etc. I was shocked however by the plastic pollution in Jordan even in the remote parts of Wadi Rum. We mentioned this to our guide and I would like to see companies like Responsible Travel trying to have influence over the government etc and also their providers such as hotels, restaurants etc. Clearly the plastic pollution has a terrible impact on the environment but then that also feeds through to the tourism industry. I appreciate that that is a global issue but I was shocked at the levels of plastic litter compared with other countries where I have travelled recently in Africa and Asia.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was a great trip. There was so much to see, it felt safe and affordable, the people were friendly and welcoming, our guide was very knowledgeable, the group had a good dynamic and the sights were just incredible - Petra alone was vast and magnificent! So many friends are interested in visiting Jordan and I hope that my pictures and write-up will encourage them to come.
