    No one was there at the airport meet and greet. Welcome meeting was very good. Wadi Rum was the highlight. The least enjoybale part was geting scammed in Petra. Great value for money and excellent tour overall.

    Travel consultant's knowledge and helpfulness was good before the tour. Provision of documents before travel was poor. Meet and greet at the airport was poor- no one there. Wadi Rum Camp showers were bad.Amman City tour and As Salt were highlights.

    Airport meet and greet was good. Itinerary was a bit too fast paced. No hot water and bad food at Wadi Rum Bedouin Camp. The tour was excellent value for money. The highlight was the Roman site of Jerash.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are entrance fees included in this tour?

    The tour price does not include entrance fees to the sites visited on the tour.

    We strongly recommend that you purchase a Jordan Pass prior to your travel to Jordan. This is a special package that has been designed by the Jordanian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities for tourists visiting Jordan. As well as including a discounted package of entrance fees covering all the sites in Jordan that you will visit on this tour (plus many others), the Jordan Pass also provides free downloadable digital brochures on each attraction, plus a free tourist visa for entering the country (40JD if obtained on arrival in Jordan).

    The cost for the Jordan Wanderer Pass suitable for this tour is JD70 (approx. US$99). Passes are available by completing a simple online form before you travel, taking care to make sure your passport details are entered correctly as this doubles as your visa application. Your Jordan Pass will then be emailed to you as a pdf document, which you should print out and bring with you. You will then need to show this print out at the immigration desk on arrival in Jordan to obtain your free entry visa, and also at each attraction where it will be scanned to confirm your entry.
