    Overall it was an incredible and memorable trip. What's not to love about Petra?! The other tour group members made it a lot of fun and the pace of the trip more tolerable. There was a lot of what felt like hurry-up-and-wait when visiting the ruins,... Show more

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.

    • What time would you have to be in Amman on the first day?

      You can arrive anytime day 1, but please note that the check-in at the hotel can be made starting with 2pm.

    • Can the hotel look after my suitcase during this trip?

      We wouldn’t really recommend leaving your suitcase in Amman, as we can’t guarantee we’ll use the same hotel at the end of the tour.

    • The trip has everything we would like to do in Jordan other than doing Mujib Siq Trail, we have found a day tour from Amman where we could this or would you be able to add this into our trip?

      The tour operator doesn’t offer a day trip to Wadi Mujib from Amman, but if you’d like to book your own day trip for one of the days that would be absolutely fine.

    • With the way the flights fall we would have to add an extra day to our tour. Would you be able to tell me what the name of the hotel in Amman we would be staying at?

      The hotel we normally use in Amman is the Al Waleed Hotel, however we don’t guarantee specific hotels on our group tours (though we use this property maybe 95% of the time on this tour).

      If you’d like to add an extra night post-tour then it would be for an additional cost per person for the night and this would still include the airport transfers.

    • We would arrive very early in the morning (earlier than the scheduled) - would a transfer from the airport still be available?

      It wouldn't be a problem for you to arrive earlier, however you may be a little tired for the sightseeing that day due to the early arrival. The airport transfer will still be included and you'll have a little time to freshen up at the hotel before the sightseeing begins - normally around 8.30am.

    • Is a tour of Amman itself available on the last day of the tour?

      If you wanted to take a tour of Amman at the end of the tour we can certainly arrange this for you, however private guiding services in Jordan are normally quite expensive so you may find it easier to take a taxi to downtown Amman and walk to the Amphitheatre and Citadel (not far from one another).

    • Would we be able to have our own double room?

      Yes, you can have your own private double room for the duration of this tour. Please contact to arrange this.

    • Is it possible to join the tour one day later?

      It wouldn't be a problem for you to arrive into Amman a day later than the start date, however this is the day when we normally visit the Dead Sea and Jerash, so unless you'll be arriving very early in the morning ( before 7am) it would result in you missing this day trip as it normally begins at around 08:30.

    • Is it possible to stay in Wadi Rum for the night and leave for Amman the next day?

      We would be able to provide a supplement for a night in the Wadi Rum, with a transfer to Amman for the final day.
