Jordan is an ideal destination for a one-week adventure. Bursting with things to see and do this trip includes the best of what this magnificent country has to offer, visiting all the major sites of interest. We will have two full days to explore the so called 'rose-red city' of Petra and to take a guided visit around Jerash, one of the best preserved Roman cities in the Middle East. There is time to 'float' in the salty waters of the Dead Sea and snorkel (optional) over the beautiful coral reefs of the Red Sea. We will also experience the fabulous scenery in the desert at Wadi Rum, where we take a 4WD excursion into the more remote regions and camp out like the Bedouin.

Highlights
  • Float in the mystical Dead Sea
  • Discover Petra's secrets, with two full days at the labyrinthine rose-red city
  • Experience Bedouin life at a desert camp in Wadi Rum
  • Stroll through the ancient streets of Roman Jerash
  • Visit Mt Nebo, claimed to be Moses' burial site
Food

All breakfasts and two dinners are included at the Wadi Rum camp and the Dead Sea resort. Whilst staying in hotels we usually eat in local restaurants and on some occasions the leader will take those who wish to a restaurant for a 'mezze' style meal. These allow fast service with a variety of good quality food for the group and usually cost 10-15 JOD pp ( GBP £11-17, USD $14-21, CAN $18-28). If you are vegetarian, please note that main meals are limited in choice; however, mezze is almost always available in restaurants and is a good, filling choice. There is also a good choice of seafood available when at the Red Sea. While camping in Wadi Rum we enjoy a traditional meal called Zarb which is cooked underground.  This consists of rice with a selection including chicken, lamb and vegetables. Vegetables will be cooked separate to the meat.

This morning we drive north to Jerash, known as Gerasa in ancient times. This was one of the ten wealthy, self-governing cities of the Decapolis during Roman times, and was famous throughout the Roman world for the luxury of its lifestyle. Buried for centuries under blown sand, Jerash is the only city of the Decapolis to have survived, with a dramatic oval forum, colonnaded main streets which remarkably have the drains still intact, two theatres and the impressive temple of Zeus. After a good look around we head back to Amman for a city tour including the Citadel, the Roman Theatre and the old city.

Today is a long driving day down the King's Highway which takes us up and down huge 'wadis' (valleys). There are several stops of interest en route including Madaba, known as the city of the mosaics, Mt Nebo and Kerak, which is a magnificent fortified town. Further south we reach the magnificent city of Petra; Jordan's premier historic site and one of the world's most outstanding ancient cities.

Two days to explore Petra, the so called rose-red city, 'half as old as time'. Petra was hidden for centuries until the Swiss explorer Burckhardt made his great discovery in 1812. It was founded by the Nabateans, an Arab tribe that arrived here in the 6th century BC. Building at Petra began in the third century BC and continued through the Roman period, financed by taxes levied on the desert caravans. Two features of Petra are unique: firstly, it is a city made defensible by being built down a series of chasms, rather than on a hilltop. Secondly, it is built directly into the rock - beautiful red and yellow sandstone carved into the most impressive facades which glow in the brilliant sunlight. To enter Petra we must begin by walking down a narrow chasm, known as the Siq, surrounded by high cliffs on either side. Unveiled at the end of the Siq is El Khazneh, the Treasury. This is just the first breathtaking sight of a remarkable day. Continuing to the centre of the city, we pass the houses and tombs of the rich citizens and the remarkable scale of the site begins to unveil itself.  A optional walk can then be done up 750 steps to El Deir, the monastery, with its superb facade topped by a huge urn.  On the second day your guide will take you into the site for either a hike up to the High Place of sacrifice or for free time to explore the city further.  Only a few people attempt to visit the High Place as it can be quite arduous and is not recommended for those who are unsure of their fitness or are uncomfortable with heights. However, those who do make it to the top are rewarded with wonderful views over parts of the site visited on the previous day.

This morning there is the option to take a guided tour through Little Petra or you can relax at our hotel before we join the modern Desert Highway and make our way south to Wadi Rum.  The purpose of Little Petra is not clear however archaeologists believe it was probably a suburb of Petra where visiting traders on the silk route may have stayed.  Today we enter the natural world heritage site of Wadi Rum where dramatic sandstone mountains rise from the sandy desert floor is where Lawrence of Arabia and Prince Faisal assembled the Arab tribes for the attack on Aqaba in the First World War and also where sections of the 1962 epic film were shot. After checking into our private Exodus camp our Bedouin hosts take us for around a 2-hour 4x4 jeep trip to explore some of the highlights of the protected area. We go to the main popular sights, have time to sample bedouin tea and then watch the sunset from the vantage point of a rock formation.  From here we return to our camp where we enjoy Bedouin hospitality with a traditional dinner called Zarb which is cooked underground.  After dinner we learn about Bedouin culture and music through interacting with the family who run the camp.

5* Excellent trip and guide
Booked very late and was lucky enough to have single room option still available. The trip is superb. More than Petra. So much in one week and very well organised. We had every season going including snow on our week, and still had a dip in Dead Sea at the end of our holiday. Pack layers for jan feb trips, and a warm jacket! Our guide, Ibrahim was superb. Great knowledge, good fun, and helpful with useful advice. Pick your choice of walks in Petra as it is massive. My highlight was the walk to high sacrifice in Petra, stunning ,even with my dislike of open heights on one spot. I would recommend Jordan for it’s friendliness, people, culture and it’s a short haul flight to a completely different landscape/culture. Brilliant trip.

5* A week of discovery
There is nothing I can say about Jordan that others who have travelled to this country have not said before.We were a large group, 20 in all, age ranging from 20`s to 60`s but unusually with a large group we all got on so well together.We started our trip with a visit to Jerash, nothing could have prepared us for the shear volume that was there with even more yet to be uncovered, absolutely fantastic to stand there in the footprints of these ancient people who created these wonders.Onto the Dead sea, I thought it was going to warmer than it was but those of us who went in had a quick float around, a pity we could not see the sites in Israel over the other side of the sea as it was quite misty.Petra was next for us, the Treasury was revealed to by a trick the guide (Zuhair) played on us and what a site, although this is really only a fraction of what is there.We spent 2 days walking around, up and over in awe at the scale and colours, every corner revealing another site or view to take your breath away.Ah camping in the desert hold that thought, how romantic, after a 4x4 ride in the desert we climbed aboard our camels for a ride again into the desert. on our return dinner was prepared but due to a strong wind we ate inside a really smokey large tent. Those of us who brought along a sleeping bag did ok but the the temperature dropped and it was cold, yes it really was.To complete our trip we moved onto Aqaba which was different again, much like many sea ports in the middle east.I found this trip so enlightening and awe inspiring to be the best of the many I have been on with exodus, thank you.

A full week discovering Jordan from Amman City and the ruins of Jerash, 2 days exploring Petra, Wadi Rum, eating and sleeping at a Bedouin camp, watching the sunset and sunrise. Snorkelling in the Red sea, where sadly the coral is now bleached and floating in the Dead Sea.

5* Fabulous
I loved very moment of this trip . Jordan is a country full of great sights and great people - lots of variety. Hard to know what was the best bit - Petra featured highly as did Wadi Rum but then so did Jerash. Tour leader Ibrahim gets it exactly right - gentle and guding leadership with expert knowledge of the history , archaeology and culture of his amazing country. A great Guy !

What a wonderful country, full of Eastern promise.The people were lovely and did not annoy us as we passed so many little shops.The country was clean and the hotels of a very good standard, a little bit more expensive then we first though it was going to be, but it is a fairly rich country so prices are on the higher side.The Dead sea, Mount Nebo, Wadi Rum, Aqaba were all fabulous but Petra was something else, amazing place and so much bigger than we thought it was going to be.Brilliant week and made even nicer by the fact we had 16 companions from 4 different countries, no smokers no moaners just wonderfully friendly people who were there to enjoy this amazing country.Thanks to all of you.

5* A marvellous trip crammed into a week
A wonderful trip with a fabulous guide and great travel companions. I wasn't sure about doing a tour as I usually travel independently. This time, I didn't have time to plan logistics, learn Arabic (though most do speak some English), or manage/research all the destinations, and I only had a week of time off, so I decided to try a pre-organised trip with Exodus to a place I've always wanted to visit. So glad I did.I learnt about Roman cities by walking amongst the pillars, I marvelled at mosaics away from the distractions of the 9-5, I climbed up rocky out-crops formed of incredible reds and oranges, I learned about the Nabateans and the Mamlucs and the Bedouin and the history or a tumultous region steeped in history for thousands of years. Not only do you get to explore Petra and Wadi Rum, float in the Dead Sea, snorkel in the Red Sea, admire Jerash and Madaba and Karak Castle and the flowers in the desert (in April) (thanks to our guide for hunting out the end of season black irises), but you get to taste local food (delicious Shawarma and Falafel) sip delicious mint concoctions, and hear about day-to-day life in world full of refugees, intense politics, history and conflict on all sides. Things come to life when you are in the landscape. Thank you.

4* An informative week
The trip was packed full of activities, which was great, but it could benefit from the odd afternoon of downtime here and there to take a breather and reflect on the activities and places seen. It is a comprehensive tour of the ket sights of Jordan - loved the the inclusion of both the Red Sea and the Dead Sea. Petra was, of course, without a doubt the highlight of the trip, but little Petra was lovely too and the night in Wadi Rum viewing sunset by four wheel drive and sunrise by camel (optional) was great fun. All in all a good trip, which I would recommend.

The trip is planned to take you through that gentle build up of activity on the first and second day to the much more strenuous exertion of days 4,5 & to a lesser degree day 6, before bringing you back down to the more restful experience of swimming/snorkelling in the Red Sea then floating and mud bathing at the Dead Sea.

4* Perfect Petra and a little Rum rum
Firstly ignore friends and people who say don't go Jordan due to problems in neighbouring countries, this is a safe and friendly country with more secure borders than our own (UK). Petra is an amazing place and not just the Treasury - this is a massive site and Exodus are the only company giving you 2 full days here - not 3 measly hours which frankly you would miss most of the site in. Wadi Rum and the desert is a surreal place and most relaxing - there are lots of added extra's and overall a trip in a week that covers the best Jordan has to offer plus a few extras.

5* An amazing week in Jordan
It had been on my ‘bucket list’ for ages and it did not disappoint. It’s a small country but it packs a mighty punch! No pictures can do the sight of Petra justice – it was awesome in the true sense of the word. The scale of it took my breath away. Standing on Mt. Nebo where Moses looked across at the ‘promised land’ gave me goose bumps and I’m an atheist! You could see why TE Lawrence fell in love with Wadi Rum and it’s spectacular mountain range – there is something ‘spiritual’ and ‘powerful’ about being in the desert and looking up at the stars!!

4* A Week in Jordan
Highlight was night in the desert. Trek round Petra also very good. Trip to Aqaba seemed a bit superfluous. Maybe cancel that and have two nights in desert camp instead?Plumbing in hotels variable in efficiency. Likewise air-conditioning on buses.Attempt to reduce use of plastic bottles laudable but unfortunately we found that we needed more than our own flask-full of water when leaving the coach for expeditions which meant we ended up buying plastic bottles as well. Could suggest having water 'on tap' in the hotel foyers as well as on the coach?

5* Astounding and revelatory
When we told our friends and relatives we were going to Jordan there were generally the sort of intakes of breath you hear from a car mechanic who is about to tell you you need a new engine. 'Isn't that a bit risky?' etc etc etc plus dodgy jokes about being chained to radiators and youtube executions. Well, if you're thinking about this trip then the first thing to do is scratch those worries from your mind. Jordan feels safe and stable. Everyone we met was fiercely proud of its independent moderate stance amidst the political and internecine chaos and strife that surrounds it. The population is literate, charming, welcoming and wryly humorous. Walking the streets of Amman is largely a hassle free experience - in comparison, say, with the in-your-face onslaught of somewhere like Marrakech. But right now the Jordanian tourist industry is suffering with people scared to go to the region, so Jordan desperately needs visitors - and all the more reason to go. Support their economy and get to see amazing sights which are hardly crowded at all.So, this trip. We've done five Exodus tours, and enjoyed all of them in different ways, but this is right up there with the very best. It's a tightly packed itinerary - at the golden centre of which is two and a half days in and around Petra. A lot of tours settle for a day or even just a few hours, but after the first gobsmacking day exploring the main Petra site itself, Exodus offer a day's hike around the High places surrounding the Petra gorge. This is a very special experience indeed - we saw only two other tourists during the whole high places hike! Although I'd read that Petra was spectacular, and I'm a bit of an old cynic, the place far exceeded expectations. No one can be disappointed by experiencing this extraordinary place.But there's more to Jordan than Petra - it's a week crammed with breathtaking landscapes, a rich and varied archaeological history, and accessible cuisine, and a night in a spectacular desert. Oh yes, and there's snorkelling in the Red Sea, and floating in the Dead Sea too.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this holiday to anyone.

A wonderful week jam packed with sights, activities and wonderful experiences. It started with a fantastic trip to Jerash, an amazing Roman Town, and just kept getting better and better. The two days spent at Petra were outstanding, and the trip to Wadi Rum exciting and so memorable. The last couple of days spent at the Red Sea and then the Dead Sea were the perfect ending to an unforgettable trip.

First of all... Don't listen to friends and relatives who may be concerned about your going off to the Middle East. Jordan feels extremely safe, the Jordanians are understandably proud of their neutral stance in the Middle East and are welcoming and friendly. and yes, they rely on tourism which is seriously down given the current situation in its neighbouring countries.Having got that out of the way I highly recommend this trip, it is very rushed as there is a lot to see in a scant week, if you can I would strongly urge you to go a day early so you have a chance to see some of Amman, or stay a day later for the same reason. there is so much we did not have time to do.The highlight of course is Petra and this trip is set up so you have your tour leader introducing you to Petra on day one and on day two you are free to explore on your own. brilliant.You do need a fairly high degree of mobility if you plan to hike up to the Monastery or the High Places both of which are a must. You can go up by donkey but that looked even scarier than going on foot! But there is plenty to do in the Valley floor if you cannot hike up these incredible mountains.Did the snorkelling trip in Aqaba and it was a highlight amongst many highlights. The crew on the boat were helpful, experienced, friendly and good cooks! I cannot imagine it could be better on a beach or wandering around the noisy town. It was a perfect end to our very full week. My only regret is that we did not have more time in Amman to explore the brand new Museum and monuments other than the Citadel and to have a bit of time for shopping. We did manage to get about an hour on Rainbow street which was worthwhile but re were several other handicraft shops recommended in the various guides to Jordan and we simply did not have the time.I would actually urge Exodus to schedule a Fridday evening departure and this give you a 8 days in Jordan.

4* a week in Jordan - much more than Petra
This is a full on trip but we covered so much. It's probably only now that I am home that I can really appreciate it all. Issa our guide was really knowledgeable and did his best to make sure we all got the best out of the trip. Mohammed, our own personal armed escort, was also a great addition to the trip although a little unnerving at first. Long travelling days were broken up by lots of stops and toilets and water were never far away. We carried our water with us on the coach in the form of two massive plastic containers so we could always top up. The weather was perfect for exploration, sunny but not too hot for Petra although Aqaba was pretty hot. Food was reasonable although a little predictable by the end of the trip. The sheer scale of Petra can only be experienced by being there and having the second day to explore at one's leisure was great. The beauty of the desert landscape in Wadi Rum took me by surprise.

Also Little Petra and the Neolithic village, the Rift Valley, the Bedouin camp was experience at Wadi Rum which was great, swimming and snorkelling in the Red Sea at Aqaba and finally the Dead Sea experience. Only one long day in the bus but we made a few stops so it wasn’t boring. Hotels were good, food was excellent. Not much alcohol but lemon and mint drinks were good.

5* A Week in Petra
A great week with a great bunch of people This was the trip just as I expected it - Petra being the highlight, but Wadi Rum coming a close second. Or maybe Jerash? Mount Nebo? Two disappointments - firstly Madaba where we rushed through the town to see only the Ma’daba Map (well worth it) because we had stopped off at a ceramic centre for adults with learning difficulties which turned out to be a large shop with less than half of the items being ceramics and the rest the usual ‘stuff’ you could find everywhere but here the assistants were very pushy. Secondly, Aquaba where, because we couldn’t get into our rooms, we went straight to the private beach for snorkelling, swimming etc. which is supposed to be an additional option but we were told to pay the JD20, with no options. A bit annoying as many of our group were not interested in sunbathing and swimming on a private beach overlooking Palestine on the other side of the Red Sea.a -

4* A very full week in Jordan!
An amazing week and also a very full week! There were some long days. Our guide Muayad was excellent, very knowledgeable and made things fun (like getting us all to hold hands and close our eyes to walk down the last bit of the Siq in Petra). Saw and learnt a lot, there is far more to Jordan than just Petra. The two days spent in Petra were well worth it. You do travel some long distances so on some days there is quite a lot of time on the coach. Organsiation and hotels mainly worked well. If I had my time over again I would fly out to Amman a day before the trip starts to see more of Amman, and avoid arriving very late and starting very early on the first day. The memories of this holiday will last a long time and we have made new friends.

5* A Week in Jordan
For years I had wanted to experience Petra. This trip turned out to be about more than just Petra--it showcased Jordan--and in the process exceeded all expectations. Two days at Petra was a wonderful way to experience the site--mile after mile of hiking as the adventure unfolded, we learned about the history and people of the area. We had dinner in the home of a local family where we learned about the muslim religion and way of life. We got to experience a hammam, we enjoyed the luminaria evening at Petra complete with poetry and music. Unforgettable!We got to experience the beauty of the desert in Wadi Rum and stay overnight in a beouin camp at full moon. The next morning, a camel ride at sunrise was magnificent and unforgettable.Snorkeling in the Red Sea--couldn't get enough of it. Swimming in the Dead Sea and taking the "mud cure". Great experience and hilarious to be plastered with black mud. Bye bye wrinkles! Amman and Jerash--such a rich experience --the hisory, the local color, the wonderful people. A special surprise for me was a birthday cake and celebration--It was wonderful and never to be forgotten, thoughtful and much appreciated! There was so much going on--the pace was just right. We saw as much as could comfortable be fitted into the time we were together.

Having just returned from Jordan and reflecting back on my week away, I feel it has been one of the best trips of my life so far. The tour has been created to have a very varied, yet well balanced itinerary consisting of the capital, Petra - a new wonder of the world, the desert, the Red Sea and the Dead Sea. It cannot be argued that this is a relaxing holiday, there is a lot of travelling and a couple of long bus days (though nothing too overbearing and always well broken up with plenty of stops and sites along the way) and the number of included activities means you will fill like you've seen the whole country in a week! But it's brilliant fun, and the opportunity to see all the main sites and the stunning scenery will mean you'll be happy to rest once you get home!Jordan is a fabulously and I feel underrated country. Despite being situated in an area of the world which has had some problems, Jordan is forunate to be a safe and easy to travel country. As a solo female traveller I didn't have a single moment of my trip where I felt uncomfortable or unsafe. The people were welcoming, the weather was perfect (not too hot but sunny every day) and the sights far surpassed my expectations. If you are considering visiting Jordan, you can't beat this trip!

5* Amazing, Stunning, Fanastic
Deciding to go on A Week in Jordan was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I'd wanted to see Petra for a long time, but I had no idea there was so much else to do - from exploring Roman ruins and the Crusaders' castle in Kerak, to snorkelling in the Red Sea and sleeping under the stars in the desert - the whole thing was amazing from start to finish.The itinerary is jam packed full of tours and activities, but there is plenty of time to recover, relax and ease tired legs when you visit Wadi Rum and Aqaba.

5* Jordan loves you!
This was a fantastic trip. I loved Jordan. Ibrahim, the Guide, was excellent and had everything perfectly organised. The food was amazing, and hotels were nice. Petra was unforgettable. Hiking boots are a good idea. The weather was hot in the middle of the day and quite cold at the beginning and end of the day. (T-shirts, with lots of layers, and a coat required, for December trips.) I have done several trips with Exodus and would thoroughly recommend this one.

5* Fantastic week, thoroughly recommend
An awe inspiring trip, with something for everyone, and covering all the key sights, sounds and tastes of Jordan.I knew I wanted to see Petra, but didn't really have any particular expectations of the rest of the tour, I was just curious to see the country. Everything was beyond my expectations, and our leader Eddie and the great group of fellow travellers really made the trip for me. This is my third Exodus trip, and they've all been very different, but equally good.We arrived into Amman late at night and were assisted through immigration and driven to our hotel. The hotel is clean and modern and very comfortable, although if you're at the back you might be woken by the call to prayer - a regular feature for the week!Day 1 was a walking tour around the ruins of Jerash which was really interesting, and then a dip in the Dead Sea and a swim in the pool above it. That evening several of us took taxis to Rainbow Street to find a restaurant for dinner (for the rest of the trip our leader Eddie took us to a different restaurant each night, also pointing out options for anyone who wanted something different).Day 2 and we left Amman with a long day of driving puntuated by stops at Mount Nebo, Arnun Valley (viewpoints and the Mujib Dam), Madaba, Kerak Castle, and finishing with dinner with a Bedouin family in their home, before checking into the hotel in Petra at around 10pm. Loo and snack stops were plenty, and between stops we were given all the info on the places we were going to see (plus jokes and stories!).Day 3 was a full day in Petra. The hotel is close to the entrance to the site, which was appreciated after a day of walking, but the rooms aren't as nice as the Amman hotel. Everything is fine, nothing major to complain about, the rooms could just do with some updating - particularly the bathrooms.In Petra we stuck together as group, walking down the Siq, seeing the big reveal of the Treasury and then along the valley. A couple of people opted not to walk the trail of 600 steps up to the viewpoint high over theTreasury, but it was well worth the climb if you have a decent level of fitness. There are two Bedouin tea tents on the way where you can take a much-needed break in the shade. That evening two of us took the option of the Turkish Bath just down the road before dinner (my tired legs appreciated the massage!), then Eddie took us all to a nearby restaurant.Day 4 was another full day in Petra, this time walking in the back way from the modern Bedouin town, and then walking around the 'nabatean neighbourhood' of cave houses. After a break for a drink, most of us set off on the climb up 850 steps through the rocks and hills to The Monastery. It was hard going in the heat, but there are rest stops on the way to buy water and snacks and plenty of amazing views to take in as you go. We ate our packed lunches in the cafe/rest stop opposite the Monastery, which is a surreal and amazing view. Having covered nearly 10 miles on each day in Petra (148 and 143 flights of stairs each day accodring to Fitbit) most people opted not to walk back in for Petra by Night, which has some very mixed reviews. Instead, after dinner a number of us headed to the Cave Bar near the visitor centre for cocktails.Day 5 and we had a lie in (there are a lot of early starts) and then left Petra, but not before exploring Little Petra and learning the history of the camel trains and the people who lived there. We stopped in town to buy lunch to eat on the bus, Eddie having pointed out the bakery, mini-markets and shawarma shop. We drove on to Wadi Rum, arriving late afternoon where we transferred to the camp in trucks/jeeps, left our luggage, went to the loo, and then set off on a 2 hour tour of the desert. The landscape is stunning and we had a great vantage point to watch the sunset before returning to camp for dinner. The tents are for two, so any single travellers are paired up with another of the same sex, as when the trip is full there aren't quite enough tents to go around. The tents are traditional woven structures with a flap across the entrance, single beds with a blanket and pillow, and a low wattage electric light from the ceiling. The loo block is a little way behing the tents and very clean, with two loos and a shower on each side. It was beautiful sitting under the stars after dinner, listening to a local musician playing traditional Bedouin music, before retiring for an early night.Day 6, and five of us had a very eary start with the optional camel ride at 5.45am. I can't recommend this enough - from the hilarity of trying to get on and stay on, to the beauty of the desert at dawn. After breakfast of omelettes back at camp, we transferred back to the bus by jeep and went to take a look at the Ottoman Railway from the time of Lawrence of Arabia -climbing aboard the steam train parked there. We then drove to Aqaba, where we had a short tour around the town by bus, stopped off for a Turkish coffee from a street vendor, and then arrived at the beach club by mid-morning. At the beach club there are several pools plus obviously a beach, all with loungers and umbrellas. You can rent snorkel gear to swim off the jetty which was fun, and you keep it for the day. Lunch was taken together with a buffet served by the main pool. After a packed itinerary to this point it was nice to just relax in the sun and the water. In the evening we checked into our hotel (fine, and has a small bar area for pre-dinner drink, but bathroom's need updating as flooding from the shower seemed to be common among all our rooms!). Eddie took us for a walk around the town including a spice stall, and the mosque, before we all went to a local fish restaurant for dinner.Day 7 and we left Aqaba to drive back up the length of the country to Amman. We stopped for photo opps overlooking the Dead Sea, to buy snacks for the journey, and to buy souvenirs at a bazaar. Arriving back in Amman early afternoon, we walked around the Roman Theatre and the Citadel before checking back into our original hotel (such comfy beds!) before heading out for a special farewell meal in a great restaurant with rooftop seating, The waiters were full of jokes and the food and atmosphere were great. Having said goodbye to our guide and driver back at the hotel, most of us then headed down the road to another hotel for a drink in the bar (most hotels, including ours, are dry).Day 8 and we transferred to the airport at 8am before flying home, with happy memories, tans, and some new friends.

4* A fabulous week in Jordan
A real tour of the highlights of all this peaceful country has to offer. Petra, and especially our second day there, was a real highlight but there was nothing to detract from it. Admittedly, perhaps in Madaba we could have taken time to see more that just the (relatively very modern) basilica of St George, but to have seen some of the other mosaics that we passed on our way there.Learning to snorkel and visiting the Red Sea reefs was another highlight for me as was, surprisingly, our camel trek in Wadi Rum - the 4x4 tour the previous evening was limited by the failing light.Overall, highly recommended.

A packed schedule with archaeology/history, food, culture, walking and snorkelling. Note that the walk on Petra second day is quite tough (with some ascent, scrambling and heights not for the vertigo-sufferer) - not to be attempted without walking boots.

My wife and I recently returned from "A Week in Jordan" and our first holiday with Exodus.

4* A delightful Week in Jordan
With short winter days in November there is a lot packed into this week - the early starts are worth it though. Travel arrangements in Jordan went well - even with a large group of 20 it never seemed as if we were rushed anywhere. The remains of the city of Jerash visited on our first day were impressive (those Romans got around).The Dead Sea was a novelty but either side of our 'private' beach was a lot of rubbish. On the whole Jordan is not a 'picturesque' country - they have a huge challenge ahead with the amount of plastic waste strewn across the countryside everywhere - roadsides, fields, olive groves etc etc are all littered with the remains of plastic bottles and bags - they seem to be blind to it.That said, the fantastic highlights of the trip - Petra and Wadi Rum - both superlative world class sites (and with a huge number of visitors) were not littered - so it is possible!The two days in Petra are worth the whole trip alone - a spectacular and huge site (wear comfortable shoes or boots) but you quickly loose the large crowds after the Siq and the Treasury.The drives through the desert and night spent in the tented camp in Wadi Rum also provided really amazing memories. Dramatic sand blasted scenery and sweeping sand dunes had us all humming the Lawrence of Arabia theme tune.

I knew all about Petra before travelling but Jordan is about so much more than that as I discovered. A fantastic week with history, culture, food and experiences that I will never forget. People queried how safe Jordan was before I left for the trip and I can honestly say I haven't felt safer on any trip I've been on before. The people were the kindest, friendliest and most open people you could hope to meet. The trip can be as active as you want with plenty of free time in Petra to trek around or just take it easy. Our guide Ibrahim was a brilliant leader who typified the hospitality of Jordan and spoke knowledgeably about history and culture. I would happily return again!

4* A fascinating tour
This trip provides an excellent chance to see the main highlights of Jordan. Our guide Jihad was excellent, knowledgeable, organised, approachable with a good sense of humour. He gave the whole group confidence.I particularly thought camping at Wahi Rum and optional camel ride the best experience. It was well run, more comfortable than anticipated and the food was delicious.Petra too is amazing but does need a reasonable level of fitness. It is good to pace it over the two days, especially if tackling the climbs. Little Petra was an unexpected treat too.Most hotels were good though the one at Petra missed the mark on several levels. I believe there is an issue with Petra hotels, which could be referred to in advance.The trip notes were very helpful and helped considerably with what to expect and what to pack.Jordan is full of history and the whole trip was fascinating.

A brilliant holiday starting in Amman visiting Jerash which is a huge site full of archeology. Petra another huge site and the walk down the Siq full of interest and then the Treasury comes into view. Climbed up to the Monastery spending all day in Petra. Best was the walk up to the High Sacrifice place. Night visit very disappointing, a bit of a lead balloon after the walk down. Hotel in Petra in a fantastic position but dirty and breakfast not good having to avoid chipped cups etc. The view from Mount Nebo over the Promised Land and all the mosaics wonderful. Loved Wadi Rum, the food, stars and camels. Aqaba interesting and snorkelling good. If it would be possible to fly home from Aqaba it would save the long but not unpleasant drive back to Amman in the tired bus with broken seats and dirty interior.

We had planned to visit Jordan on our own but in the end decided to go with a group. This undoubtedly was the right decision as there is lots to see and learn about. Our wonderful, enthusiastic guide made this so easy and accessible. I have always wanted to see Petra but did not have any clue about all the other treats that were in store.........the huge Roman city at Jerash, mount Nebo and the unforgettable Kings Highway. And more, and more.....everyday full of delight and rich photo opportunities. The landscape is truly stunning. The desert is spectacular......seen one desert and you have seen them all? No way, this scenery was quite different from the other three desert experiences I have had and it offered the very best starscape as the night was so clear. Beautiful. Have snorkelled quite a bit as well, and the afternoon at the Red Sea was up there with the best. Warm water, easily accessible from a jetty.

5* Jordan - the Holiday That Just Keeps Giving!
The trip ‘A Week in Jordan’ is an experience that can leave even the most literate and verbally gifted (‘gobby’) at a loss for the right words to describe it.I was part of a 20-strong group that seemed to get on unusually well. There were some seriously seasoned travellers amongst us, yet we all came to the same conclusions, the same thoughts: time and again the destinations proved to be far larger and far grander than we had imagined.Jerash (an introductory diversion I believed) turned out to be a wonder in itself. Huge in expanse, so intricately detailed in parts, and as yet still so unexplored.In the West the word ‘Biblical’ is often used to describe something enormously significant – in Jordan ‘Biblical’ sites are dotted all around – like puzzle clues to a hidden image too big for the mind to grasp. The landscape becomes more than background. It becomes a fiery crucible on which you can imagine humans struggling and suffering just to stay alive through key moments in History. This is a land that does not seem ‘tamed’ by humans. I suspect this quality is a factor in why so many of the world religions have had their genesis nearby?But that’s enough of the florid prose. Let us skip to the star of the show: Petra.No images, no movie scenes (and there have been many) could ever capture the mind-blowing scale of this site. The famous ‘Treasury’ (as seen in Indiana Jones, Sinbad, The Mummy etc.) is just a particularly pretty door… that leads into a house of ancient wonders. The two days spent here are a lifetime investment.

5* A wonderful week in Jordan
We really enjoyed our week in this really interesting country. There was so much to see and do. We enjoyed the Roman city at Jerash, Amman sites including the Jordan museum, Mount Nebo, Karak castle, Petra for two days which is the right amount of time. Also Little Petra and the Neolithic village, the Rift Valley, the Bedouin camp was experience at Wadi Rum which was great, swimming and snorkelling in the Red Sea at Aqaba and finally the Dead Sea experience. Only one long day in the bus but we made a few stops so it wasn’t boring. Hotels were good, food was excellent. Not much alcohol but lemon and mint drinks were good. Hiking in Petra was fun...we all did the treks. Jordan is a very friendly country....we felt safe at all times.
