Really enjoyed this trip. I was travelling on my own and everyone on the tour was really friendly, I felt really at ease and enjoyed every minute of it. The tour guides were really knowledgeable on everything and I felt that I didn't have to worry about a thing. The food was of a much higher standard than I expected and so were the hotels. I am looking forward to doing my next Gecko's trip to South America and Antarctia!

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, experience extreme saltiness at the Dead Sea, enjoy a night off the grid at a Bedouin desert camp, 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).

Amman’s buildings seemingly follow uniform construction protocols, so it’s a good idea to pack a map and pay attention to where you’re going while navigating through a sea of rocky, grey same-same-but-just-a-little-bit-different buildings ... Read more on the blog

Whether you wanna get lost in the souqs of Aleppo, float in Jordan’s Dead Sea or pretend you’re Luke Skywalker in Tunisia, this exotic region will surprise, delight and leave a traveller wanting more.
So jump on a Geckos Middle East or North Africa trip and lose yourself to Moroccan medinas, sleep under Saharan stars, explore Egypt’s pyramids, discover the hidden jewels of Petra, and kickstart your Arabian adventure asap.View all Middle East & North Africa trips
