Why you'll love this trip
  • Follow in the footsteps of Indiana Jones and explore the amazing ancient city of Petra, with history brought to life by your incredible local leader

  • Discover the magical world that lies under the Red Sea with snorkelling around some of the world’s best coral reefs
  • Cruise through the desert on a 4WD safari and witness a landscapes that’s changed every day by the wind, then maybe explore in real desert style – by camel
  • Play gladiator in the ancient Roman city of Jerash, and re-enact more ancient epics in the crusader Kerak Castle

Is this trip right for you?
  • There are some long travel days on this trip, with driving times adding up to between six and eight hours. This is a good opportunity to get to know your fellow travellers and soak up the diverse scenery.
  • It’s important to prepare for hot temperatures during the day and cooler climates in the evening, particularly in the desert. Layers are the one of the best ways to tackle this disparity in weather. Water, hats and comfortable shoes for lots of walking around sites like Petra are recommended. Also pack some warmer clothes for the winter season.
  • Jordan requires a certain level of modesty in terms of clothing, although on the beach the usual swimwear is acceptable.
  • Please be aware that consumption of alcohol outside of approved venues or in the streets is illegal.

Excellent trip. Petra, cooking with local family & really got to know Jordan & its history were highlights. Good hotels, great campsite, good transport. Furat was an excellent leader.

We had a wonderful time on our Jordan Family holiday. Our trip was a great balance of local and tourist experiences, history, family fun and spectacular scenery. What made it extra special was our guide Motaz, who went above and beyond to make it a family holiday we will never forget.
