    This tour was amazing! We went to Jordan not knowing what to expect, nor did we know much about the country but it blew out all of our expectations. The itenary was incredible but what made the tour even more enjoyable was our guide Khadir. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone was happy and he is absolutely hilarious. He showed us the beautiful history of Jordan but with a sense of humour. I highly recommend this tour but recommend Khadir as your guide even more

    I went on the Highlights of Jordan adventure from 3 May to 11 May and had one of the greatest experiences of my life. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to give us a lot of historical information and was very open to any of our questions. The attractions did not disappoint. If you've always wanted to see Petra, Wadi Rum, the Red Sea, or just experience a whole new culture then you owe it to yourself to take this tour.

    Tour was run very efficiently; we packed a lot into the days without a significant amount of down time, and I liked that. Hotels were a mix of nice and unsatisfactory: Retaj in Amman was very nice but the first night so excruciatingly hot in the room I barely slept at all. I know several of us complained to the hotel desk. I finally slept a couple hours after I moved the bed across the room in front of the window; the road noise through the open window was really loud. Seven Wonders at Petra was a complete dump. The room reeked so badly of smoke I had to change rooms; the 2nd room looked like the carpet had not been vacuumed in a year, with obvious visible debris all over it; bathroom was not maintained with lots of mold and grunge; having a mini-fridge was nice except when you removed the keycard it turned off, ergo ruined perishables. Our bus was pretty full, so quite uncomfortable with nowhere but the dusty floor to place your backpack; overhead shelf was too slim to fit anything substantial up there. Our driver was a nice and pleasant guy who cared for the bus well and it was pretty clean. There seemed to be a lot of distortion in the bus' microphone (if was so much easier to understand our guide without it). Our guide Monty was excellent, friendly, easy going and caring. If we had any problems at all he was right on it for us. We were well taken care of. Overall GAP and our guide did a great job on this tour and it was most enjoyable. Any problems I encountered were related to difficulty dealing with the local Jordanians, who will take you for a ride if you aren't vigilant - a different culture.

    I recently went on a tour to Jordan through G Adventures. I was always sceptical about travelling to the middle east but I felt safe throughout my trip. The tour was well put together and interesting. I look forward to travelling with them again.

    A great trip from many perspectives. Wonderful, safe country, an urbane and quietly sophisticated leader, Jihad, warm and welcoming people, healthy variety in activities, good transportation and accommodations, great travel companions, delicious food and, if you are considering this trip for Petra, you will not be disappointed

    Just back from a fantastic G Adventures Highlights of Jordan Tour. First and most importantly, our tour guide Zuhair was 10/10, a fountain of knowledge and made the trip what it was for myself and the 14 other travel companions. From bobbing about the Dead Sea and trekking around the spectacular City of Petra to spending the night in the colourful Wadi Rum desert and fishing on the the Red Sea, this trip was packed with fantastic surprises. Highly recommend visiting Jordan with G Adventures if you're considering it.

    Where do I start? This trip was so much better than I thought it was going to be. When Zuhair (our CEO) told us that every day would get better than the last, I cynically rolled my eyes and didn't believe him. Boy was I wrong! Sight after amazing sight with a fantastic group of well travelled individuals showed off Jordan in its best light. From the ruins of Jerash to the magic of Petra: the weird floating below sea level in the Dead Sea to snorkelling in the Red Sea; from phenomenal falafel to mouth-watering kunafeh (you HAVE to try this); this country has so much going for it. It is really sad that the number of tourists is so low given its geographical location between a whole lot of contentious countries (great for our photos though) but this place is safe and waiting for you to come and visit. I couldn't recommend it more!! Book this trip now!!

    I had an incredible experience and will definitely be using G Adventures again. The tour was very well organized and all of the accommodations were solid. Our tour guide, Bassam, was the best part of the entire G experience. He was very knowledgeable and personable. I would book another tour exclusively because of the quality of the tour guide.

      The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
