Introducing Jordan

Jordan's top attractions Petra, the Dead Sea and Wadi Rum are all amazing in their own right. The fact that these world-class sites are located just a few hundred miles from each other make Jordan a must-see travel destination. The country's excellent infrastructure and friendly people add to its attractiveness. You can experience Jordan in just a few days, and combine it with a visit to neighboring countries, or spend 2+ weeks exploring history, nature and culture. Browse our Jordan tours to get inspired before connecting to one of our local Jordan specialists. 

When is the best time to visit?
Jordan is a year-round destination, but peak-time for touring Jordan is spring (March-May), when temperatures are still warming up and wildlife is at its finest. Autumn (September - November) is also popular.  Both seasons see milder temperatures, making hiking and sightseeing alike more comfortable. Read more details about the best time to visit Jordan.

Top places to explore
In addition to visiting Jordan's top 3 (Petra, the Dead Sea and Wadi Rum), we highly recommend taking the time to experience Jordan more deeply, through activities such as sharing a meal with a local family, staying at a bedouin camp, and trekking through a wadi (desert canyon). Find more ideas here.

Getting Around
Jordan is a compact country with a great highway network. Most travelers opt to hire a private driver to explore its amazing sites. Read more

Jamal was our driver for the entire trip and picked us up at the border. He was very prompt and so kind. He made sure we were always comfortable and well taken care of. He even went above and beyond and bought us fresh spices to take home and cook with.
5 stars for the entire trip and wi would highly recommend booking with KimKim!

First of all thank you to Kimkim for a nice set up for tourist like us who are new to world travel.
Kimkim introduced with Mr. Samir from Jordan who set up our Itinerary in a manner that we don't waste our time. He set up our visa, our hotels in Amman, Petra and camps at Wadi rum.
He was available 24/7 with his WhatsApp, if we had any question he promptly reply.

Upon arrival from New York, we were warmly welcomed by the guy (forgot the name) from Enjoy Jordan travels. The immigration process is very quick, our names were mentioned on the board, and we felt welcomed and with such a friendly atmosphere we had a fantastic start!

We got introduced to Mr. Shareef who is our guide/driver for our whole 8 days trip. Mr. Shareef picked us from Airport and brought us to our hotel.

Each morning of the tour, he would arrive promptly at 8am to take us to the next destination on the tour. On each day, Mr. Shareef would describe in detail the history and information regarding the area we were in- whether that be a site of Islamic history or Roman/Byzantine history He is fluent in English and knows how to handle the customers with respect and professionalism.

“We had a wonderful tour with Mr. Shareef. We enjoyed it greatly, all the detailed information he provided, and his patience with us telling all the historic events. Mr. Shareef is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide. He drove very professionally on high mountain roads, he knew all the areas, food, restaurants, historical places either it’s an Islamic history or roman/Byzantine history.

He was very respectful when we asked questions and very knowledgeable regarding historic sites. He was also very friendly with us and the people he would interact with, always making polite conversations. Furthermore, he was even willing to take photos and videos of us and the area, so we could experience it without focusing on doing it ourselves.

Mr. Shareef also is very knowledgeable about Jordan in general. He knew the high mountain roads incredibly well, knew restaurants for us to try out, even knew the routes on our tour incredibly well. At most of the sites, in fact, Mr. Shareef had connections which resulted in faster service and a better full immersion into our tour of Jordan.

I wholeheartedly believe that had we done the tour of Jordan without Mr. Shareef, we would not have been able to experience Jordan as well as we did.

Many thanks to Mr. Shareef, and I recommend Kimkim/Enjoy Jordan to anyone who is considering a tour in Jordan!

I can't emphasize on awesome he was at this!

Our trip went off without a hitch, in part because of the private driver, Mohammed, that Samir set up for us for our whole vacation. He made changes with us along the way as we changed our minds about small details, and we always enjoyed his company and felt taken care of and safe.

Regarding our itinerary, my husband and I spent a total of two weeks in Jordan and we really did *everything*. I'd recommend taking that much time making sure you make the most of this beautiful historic place!

Here's some of things we did
- Historic sites (Jerash, Petra, Umm Qais, often with private guides)
- Outdoor adventuring (Make sure you do Wadi Al-Mujib!)
- Desert (desert castles, Wadi Rum)
- cultural experiences (cooking class, museums)

Thanks again for the perfect trip to Jordan, Samir!

This is a great thing to do *IF* it's your very first view of Petra and the Treasury. The candlelight effect is really nice, and we got lucky enough to see the moon over the canyon, too. However, I wouldn't add this if you've already been to Petra :) all it is is a walk to the Treasury by candlelight, sitting on carpets and drinking a little tea, some local musicians, then shining floodlights on the Treasury building
