Jordan tailor made holiday
Description of Jordan tailor made holiday
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOn this tour we visit several towns and places that are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well as protected reserves and areas such as the beautiful Petra site and the otherworldly landscape to the Dead Sea. Our visits to these places help to support local projects to conserve the area's cultural and geographical heritage.
Our driver/guides will brief travellers on appropriate behaviour, both cultural and environmental.
Where appropriate and feasible we will always incorporate walking tours of cities rather than being reliant on private transportation - not only reducing our carbon footprint but we believe leading to a more enjoyable and intimate experience for our clients. Furthermore, all vehicles used on the tour have low carbon emissions. We work closely with our local suppliers to highlight best practice in terms of environmental issues.
This being a private and tailormade tour, it has much less impact when travelling through rural areas, reducing our environmental and social affects. Travellers are free to choose how long they get to experience in each region and where to go next.
Finally to emphasis our commitment to Responsible Tourism all clients will receive a copy of our Travellers Code of Conduct with their travel documents.
PeopleOur philosophy is to only use small and locally owned suppliers, meaning that the income remains within the country and creates a real economic contribution. We also feel that the passion inherent within such suppliers means that your experience will be enhanced.
We only employ local staff and unlike many operators we believe that to send a foreign Tour Leader along to accompany your trip is an unnecessary burden on your wallet and our carbon footprint. We believe that locals know best.
Wherever possible, throughout this private tour to Jordan, we use locally owned accommodation. This means your money stays in the area to benefit the local community. When possible we use local transport, and we always use local restaurants, markets and shops. In doing this your travels are supporting and encouraging the development of local services.
On this suggested short tour, travellers also take part in the preparation of traditional dishes with the local Iraq Al Ameer Womens Co-Op.
