Destinations / Middle East

Whether you are looking for an adventure, a trip to see holy sites or one to absorb centuries of history and culture, Jordan offers many tourist sites. From ancient cities such as Amman, Madaba and Jerash to UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Petra and Umm ar-Rasas, to the Jordanian Highlands and Wadi Rum, the incredible country of Jordan is ripe for discovery.


A tapestry of adventure and culture, this Middle Eastern country welcomes millions of tourists yearly, from history to religious buffs, outdoor enthusiasts to foodies. The country is a treasure trove of some of the most fascinating things to do and see in the Middle East, but if you want to elevate your trip, book a tour with Trip 500.


The Jordanian tour operator presents guests with an authentic Middle Eastern experience offering adventure tours, family friendly tours, private tours, group tours and luxury tours. If you are looking for a luxurious Middle Eastern experience, look no further than the six-night tour, which shows you all the sites and ensures you are staying in style. Your tour includes private transportation and a tour guide who shares insights and stories along your journey.


Below are just some of the sites and activities that can be done in the area, and if you are looking for some of the best accommodations to amplify your stay even more, look no further than Four Seasons Hotel Amman, Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea and Mövenpick Resort Petra.


Ma’in Hot Springs: In this surprisingly green oasis, immerse yourself in a series of mineral rich springs and spectacular waterfalls to rejuvenate the body.


Mount Nebo: Head to this religious site where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land before his death and take in the panorama of the West Bank across the Jordan River valley.


Madaba: Tour this ancient town known for the Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics, including a map of the Holy Land.


Dead Sea: Enjoy a stress-free afternoon floating in the saltiest body of water in the world.


Al-Karak: Head to the city known for the Kerak Castle, one of the three largest castles in the region, and learn about its history and strategic positioning.


Petra: Of course, no visit to Jordan can be complete without visiting one of the seven wonders of the world, where, at night, around 8:30 p.m., you can see the night show.


Wadi Rum: The journey continues south, passing through the naturally multicolored canyons, towering sandstone mountains and dunes. Enjoy a leisurely camel ride in the desert before a lovely barbecue dinner under the stars.


Aqaba: Home to the Islamic-era Aqaba Fort, this port city is known for its beaches and water sports. While here, climb aboard a luxurious triple-decker yacht and go snorkeling and fishing.
