Tour Jordan

There are so many wonderful things to see and do in Jordan. Jordan tours might include visits to the cities of Amman, the capital of Jordan, or the incredible Nabataeam City of Petra. Visitors may experience the Greco-Roman ruins of Jerash or Wadi Rum of Lawrence of Arabia fame. Adventuresome guests may traverse greatly diverse lands from sea, to desert canyons, to fertile valleys while visiting castles of relaxing in the bathes of the Red Sea.

Jordan tours should certainly include a visit to Amman to visit this very modern city in the heart of an ancient land. The heart of Amman offers visitors modern hotels, restaurants, shopping and art galleries. Yet, all around the city there are signs of ancient Amman with traditional coffee houses and artisan shops.

Petra is often called the eighth wonder of the ancient world. Petra is an immense, ancient, city carved into the steep, pink rock faces over 2000 years ago. The ancient city was once an important trade centre dealing in silks and spices. To thoroughly explore Petra one would need four or five days, but some time here when arranging Jordan tours, is essential. One should be certain to where comfortable walking shoes for this exploration.

Wadi Rum is a land of towering rock skyscrapers carved by thousands of years of relentless wind. This place is vast, wild and untouched by humankind. The towering rockscapes reach heights of 5,741 feet creating serious challenges for rock climbers. Exploration of the rock canyons will reveal drawings on the rock walls that are over 4000 years old.

Jordan tours offer so many great experiences that it may be difficult to choose when planning an itinerary. One great possibility is to focus on locations that are mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible. Most of what happened in the Old testament happened in Jordan. One can visit Mount Nebo the burial site of Moses or see where Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River.

Jordan tours might focus on eco-tourism or active tourism, both a new and growing industry in Jordan. Visitors may arrange tours to camp in the stark vastness of Wadi Rum or bask in the luxury at a first class eco-friendly spa resort. Another choice is a trek across the eastern coast of the Dead Sea to arrive at a sparkling pool and waterfall that rises quite mysteriously from the barren rock.

For a really different Jordan tours experience join a 4-wheel-drive adventure that retraces, the steps of Emperor Hadrian, from north to south across Jordan. The trip offers explorations of biblical cities and ancient fortresses. For those seeking something even more primitive try a caravan by camel or donkey. Camp in a different location each night while trekking across the central highlands and eastern deserts of Jordan following the route of Lawrence of Arabia.

Jordan tours offer so much to so many. Ancient, modern, luxury, primitive, a mixture of both or something in between plan a vacation adventure to Jordan and create memories not soon forgotten.
