You’ll see the Treasury, an imposing ancient tomb, then it's upwards to the

hike through Wadi Farasa to our picnic lunch stop.  Hidden high in the hills
is another legendary monument, the Monastery.  To get there we head up 850

Reviews from Travellers on this Tour

An excellent tour of an amazing country

This trip really does do a great job of showcasing what an amazing country Jordan is - taking you to some of its more well-known sites (e.g., Petra, the Dead Sea) and some of its lesser-known ones (I had never heard of the Wadi Mujib Siq Trail before but it was my favourite part of the trip). The trip strikes a great balance between fun activities and time to relax. The first hotel (Rum Art) is a little basic, but the standard improves as the week goes on which means you appreciate the later ones even more. I have never had longstanding ambitions to go to Jordan but, after this trip, I can't recommend it highly enough.

Excellent!

An excellent trip. Enjoyed every moment of it and was so sad to leave at the end. Laughed more than I have done in years and feel like I was away for months. We saw so much in the 9 days. I felt at home in Jordan from the moment I arrived. I will definitely be heading back to Jordan and booking another Exodus Edits trip! Thanks for having me!

Spectacular

This is a wonderful and magical trip from start to finish with a great mix of culture, hiking, delicious food, welcoming people and breath-taking beauty of the landscape and archaeological sites.

The most wonderful time in a mesmerising country

From the moment of booking the trip to arriving back to London everything was a super organised. When we arrived in Amman we were greeted by an Exodus representative, who helped us through security and took us to the taxis. The first hotel gave a great indication of what 'Active Jordan in style' will mean. Our hotels and accommodation were of a high standard. The huds in the Ajloun Forest Reserve were basic but nice. On our first morning Ab, our guide, gave us an overview on what to expect for the next 7 days. It was the beginning of the most wonderful week. I cannot imagine a better way of experiencing Jordan. We had a great mixture of sightseeing and activities to enjoy & experience the richness of Jordan: Jaresh, Aljoun Forest, Mount Nebu, Petra, Wadi Rum, Red Sea, Dana, Dead Sea and Wadi Mujib. Our driver Sami and guide Ab made sure we arrived safely and felt cared for at any point.

Action packed week!

Really busy trip but the pace calms down after Petra! Lots to see and amazing food to try too. Petra is as stunning as everyone says (I'd skip Petra by night, very busy expensive and stinky!) but Jerash is also absolutely beautiful and huge. The Dead Sea is a complete mind boggling experience you just can't help but float. Lots of optional extras available for this trip - Turkish bath, cookery class, star watching, Petra by night.
