Whooda thunk it? The awesomeness of Jordan is really too much to mention here, but just to give you a taste think classical ruins, folky bedtime stories and the weirdest dessert you’ve ever seen.
Travel to Jordan to see the Middle East’s quiet achiever hard at work. Small in size but not in stature, the Kingdom of Jordan is enjoying a renaissance of late, so it would be a wise move to check out what all the fuss is about.
On a Geckos tour of Jordan you’ll get to channel your inner Indiana Jones at Petra, dune bash through the Wadi Rum desert, perhaps experience extreme saltiness at the Dead Sea, enjoy a night off the grid at a Bedouin desert camp, go out on your own and pretend to be an archaeologist at the Roman ruins of Jerash, and see the old meet the new in up-and-coming Amman.
Oh, and since Jordan regularly throws up white-hot, scorching temperatures, you’ll get to sweat too.
With deserts that go on forever and cities built on the back of centuries of trade, labour and tradition, a trip to Jordan is the ultimate rut-breaker for active travellers seeking to interrupt their lives with a potent dose of mysterious Middle Eastern magic (and a face-melting blast of desert air).
What people say
Jordan is an amazing country, book extra days there as the tour will not be long enough. In particular Wadi Rum is a lifetime highlight for me.

Jordan Journey, July 2017
I could not recommend Jordan as a country to tour more highly. It has so much to offer, such as trekking Petra to soaking in the Dead Sea, exploring Roman ruins and crusade castles as well as seeing a variety of religous and historical sites to rival Israel and Palestine.

Jordan Journey, July 2017
I had the most amazing experience with Geckos on the Egypt and Jordan Highlights Tour. We had excellent Tour Leaders who went above and beyond to ensure we got the most out of our trip, and we got to see everything on my bucket list (from the Pyramids of Giza to swimming in the Nile River, overlooking the Petra Treasury and floating in the Dead Sea). In terms of value for money, Geckos was definitely the best tour company on the market, most of the main sites were included, but we also had the freedom to explore the local food and culture in a way that makes the trip unique from person to person. I would recommend Geckos to any travellers - both solo or in couples/groups - who are looking to get off the beaten track and make the most of a once-in-a-lifetime trip.
