Hidden Treasurers of Jordan

I can sum up the Hidden Treasurers of Jordan trip in one word "fabulous". I normally go for the more involved type of holiday involving lots of climbing etc but thought I would give a more relaxed trip a go. I'm so glad I did. Jordan a country which seems to be going through a tourism crisis at the moment due to its neighbours Iraq, Syria, Israel, Gaza and Saudi should be classed as a "must visit" and due to the lack of tourists its a great time to go. The country is stunning, the people warm and friendly and the country is above all safe! The cuisine is a mixture of Arab, and European and very tasty. Its also the only Arabian county I've visited where wine, beer and spirits is freely available! What resonates the most is the sense of history that permeates Jordan from prehistoric to Roman, Byzantine, Crusades, First World War to the modern issues. Its a snapshot of world history wrapped up in a beautiful small country! The trip itself managed to avoid being a one trick pony with plenty of trips to the desert and a boat ride in Aqaba. The 12 day trip allowed me to see so much of this but also left me hungry for more! I was also very lucky that the rest of the group are fab people, it was a great trip with a great group. The only downside was leaving Jordan. How soon can I go back?!

Hidden Treasures of Jordan

A huge amount to see and experience, from museum in Amman with 400,000 year old flint tools and Dead Sea scrolls to as good Roman remains in the vicinity as there are in Rome (where we went a few months before). Trips out from Amman not too long and plenty to see, explore and experience. Quite sobering to see the Golan Heights and later in the trip a Syrian refugee camp in the desert. Travelling south to see the St John the Baptist baptism site and nearly touch Israel across the Jordan, arranged as an extra by our very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide Ali. 'Sinking' in the Dead Sea at the beach of our 5* upgrade hotel, plus another addition by Ali of a late afternoon visit to Little Petra. Two days of heat in Petra, setting off early for the climb to the Monastry with the shade temperature of 32C at 0715. Found remains of the oldest purpose built Christian church in the world in Aqaba; not to mention crusader castles, the 'Promised Land' lost in the haze, Madaba where we would have liked a bit more time to wander and Wadi Rum. Food different and very good all the way and all the Jordanians we met were very friendly. A diverse and very friendly group made this and excellent trip.

It was advertised as leisurely but it was much more energetic than that.

HIDDEN TREASURES OF JORDAN

Jordan is a fantastic country, sadly bypassed by events in the Middle East. The people are friendly, the food is fantastic, the ancient sites are awe inspiring and the weather (in Oct) pleasant. There's not much to dislike!

HIDDEN TREASURES OF JORDAN

A really good holiday in a fantastic country with some amazing ancient sites, Jerash and Petra being absoutely stunning. Good country, great companions, a passionate guide, and with a few tweaks to the itinerary, could be an amazing adventure for anyone with an interest in archaeology and biblical history.

HIDDEN TREASURES OF JORDAN

Jordan is a great place to visit but some long travels involved to see the many sights. Mass tourism is present in many places but there are still many off the beaten path opportunities. Some parts were rushed, so read up before you go so that you can choose what bits of an archaeological site you really want to see. Our guide left us to do our own thing when not on the bus trip, so be prepared with a guide book to search out what to see and eat in the evenings.

HIDDEN TREASURES OF JORDAN

This was one of those must do trips, mostly to see Petra but also the Dead Sea, Aqaba and Biblical sites like Mount Nebo. History, Geography and Culture mixed together and spiced with the charm of the Middle East. Talking about spices, the food was unforgettable as well!
