At Encounters Travel, we understand that everyone is different and that's why we provide a variety of Jordan tours that will suit every preference.
Quintessentially Middle Eastern, the desert country of Jordan was previously only accessible to the most intrepid of explorers. Visitors going on a Petra / Jordan today are now able to discover all aspects of the country, including beautiful desert and mountain scenery, lost cities, spectacular ruins and the delights of the Red Sea. Often evoking images of ancient Biblical times the modern-day country of Jordan is widely regarded as one of the most progressive Middle Eastern countries with the capital city Amman standing at the forefront of this modernisation.
Journey through this rugged desert country on one of our Jordan group tours as we discover ancient Roman ruins strewn across the sands, enjoy unforgettable desert sunsets and come upon the lost city of Petra and the miraculous Dead Sea.
Join us as we spend the night under the stars in a traditional Bedouin camp and relax and unwind and enjoy the coral reefs in a Red Sea beach resort. We also feature several tours that combine time in Israel or Egypt with a visit to Jordan. Whatever your budget, we have the best Jordan tour for you.

Encounters Travel did an excellent job in all aspects of our trip! Egypt was amazing and the trip was made especially enjoyable as a result of the quality of the guides. I highly recommend Encounters Travel!
Worth every penny! Go to Egypt with Encounters Travel!
This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.
There was a lot of communication from the beginning. The encounters staff was very responsive and the tour guide was great and very accommodating. Encounters was also able to help me with last minute changes to my itinerary while I was on the trip.
I have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.
I was pleased and impressed with the experience in booking and obtain all necessary documents in a timely manner. I am looking forward to my tour and hope the ground experience it just as good. This trip is my dream/bucket list trip.

Jordan is a sovereign Arab State in Western Asia and is officially called the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Jordan is situated on the East Bank of the Jordan River (which it is
named after) and bordered by Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Israel and Palestine. The Dead Sea lies along the western borders and a Red Sea shoreline is on the southwest of the country. The capital of Jordan is Amman, the most populous city and the country's cultural, political and economic centre.
This almost-landlocked country that is relatively small has a population of almost 10 million people, which makes it the 11th-most populous Arab country. The dominant religion Sunni Islam is practised by 95% of the population and coexists with an indigenous Christian minority.
Despite its turbulent region setting, Jordan remains stable and at peace with its surrounding countries. Even during the Arab Spring in 2010, it was hardly affected. Since 1948, Jordan has accepted refugees from its neighbours.
Throughout the Middle East, Jordan is regarded as one of the most progressive countries. Although it has one of the smallest economies in the region it is growing at a fast rate and continues to attract foreign investors as a result of its skilled workforce. This country is a safe and major tourist destination that also entices medical tourists, based on its developed medical sector. The climate in Jordan is heavily influenced by the country's location between the Arabian Desert and the eastern Mediterranean area.
