Journey through Jordan: Real travels

“This was the best trip we’ve undertaken.”

When we receive photos and a review from clients that so perfectly encapsulate why we believe a country is so special, we can’t not share them! A big thank you to Rob and Audrey, who have done just that with these top-notch photos and their stellar review of beautiful Jordan. 

The highlights: Jordan is safe and Jordan is seriously special.


“We’ve been lucky and have undertaken a number of organised/escorted trips to different countries through reputable agents such as Kuoni, but this trip to Jordan booked and organised through holiday architects was the best we have ever undertaken.

We were away for 10 days and the itinerary was just perfect with a balance of touring days visiting some amazing sites and days spent chilling in some lovely hotels.

The local agents, UTA, were absolutely spot on. We were met at the gangway of the aeroplane and escorted through border control with our visas pre prepared and handed over to an excellent driver, Moayyed, who stayed with us throughout the trip. His personal knowledge and recommendations were great.

We can’t believe Jordan hasn’t been on our radar before now. What a country! You can probably travel extreme north to south in 5 hours and the change in scenery is amazing from lush green to deserts and wadis.

There is a huge range of historical sites other than Petra to visit with some of the most preserved ruins we’ve seen. I’d recommend taking two days to explore Petra to ensure everything can be covered at a reasonable pace.

Due to the Palestinian situation, Jordans tourism is 70% down at our time of travel and the country is suffering with people losing their jobs.

“I don’t recall ever feeling safer on holiday.”

At no point did we feel unsafe, threatened or wish we hadn’t made the trip. In fact, I don’t recall ever feeling safer on holiday. UTA also provided a mobile for us to keep throughout our stay so we could contact our driver whenever we needed.

Jordan is amazing, the food is great and the people warm and welcoming. In Amman, people randomly thanked us for visiting their country and wished us a good trip.

We visited Amman, Umm Qais, Ajloun, Jerash, Karak, Aqaba, Wadi rum, Petra and spent our final day/night at the Dead Sea (45 mins from the airport)

All this just 5 hours flight from the UK. We were very sad to leave and come home.”
