Walk the Street of Facades, passing the Roman Theatre to reach the Royal Tombs. See the Byzantine Church, Temple of the Winged Lions, and Great Temple. At the museum, your tour ends. Petra is excellent for photography and the best time to take pictures is late afternoon, as this is when the angled sun highlights and enhances the natural red, pink, and orange colors of the rocks.

Frequently asked questions

Most likely, yes. Some travelers can obtain a visa on arrival (no longer available at the Wadi Araba border crossing). It is best to check the Jordan Tourism Board’s visa info page to determine if citizens of your country need to obtain a visa before arrival or if you can get one on arrival.

Jordanians are known for their warm hospitality, making Jordan not only a safe place to visit, but also extremely welcoming. Although there is unrest in other areas of the Middle East, Jordan is peaceful and often referred to as “the quiet house in the noisy neighborhood.” Of course, you should still take the usual precautions you’d take most anywhere you travel in the world: Leave the expensive jewelry at home, don’t flash wads of money, keep your valuables close by or locked in a safe, and don’t wander off alone at night. If you are traveling to the northern part of Jordan, be aware that you may be asked to show your passport at checkpoints and should not attempt to cross the border. The Syrian border crossings are currently closed and you will not be permitted near them (as of writing this in early 2018).

Absolutely! Jordanians tend to be very family-oriented, so children are welcome in most places. You can find more details on family travel in this article.

While you can visit Jordan any time of year, spring (March-May) or fall (September - October, though September and October can still be hot) are likely to be the most comfortable weather-wise. Summer can be unbearably hot and winter can be quite cold and rainy with shorter days and less light. If spring or fall travel isn’t possible, summer is the next best option — more sunlight means more hours to explore.

It depends. If you are on a budget, you can find affordable local meals — like a falafel sandwich — for a couple of dinars or less, and stay in budget accommodations, like hostels in Amman and Bedouin camps in Wadi Rum for around $20-30 per night. If you’d prefer more upscale dining options and creature comforts, you will find an array of restaurant options with extensive local and international menus in Amman. Luxury hotels in Amman, Dead Sea, Petra, and Aqaba run around $100-$300+ per night. There are mid-range options and lovely boutique hotels for around $100 per night. Whether you are traveling on a budget or planning to indulge, keep in mind that the typical cost per day for a tour is about $125-300.

Visitors to Jordan tend to travel by car — either self-driving a rented car or hiring a car and driver. Public transportation in Jordan can be unreliable and there are no trains. If renting a car, keep in mind that driving in Jordan may be quite different from driving at home. Drivers tend to be aggressive. In many places, there are no lines on the road, and even if they exist, people often ignore them. Road signs are not always posted and GPS may not be accurate. If you find driving in Jordan exhausting, ask our specialists about booking you a driver and guide so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the spectacular scenery. If you are traveling from Amman to Wadi Rum or Aqaba, you may consider a domestic flight from Queen Alia International Airport in Amman to King Hussein International Airport in Aqaba.

The Jordanian dinar (JD). One JD is approximately 1.4 USD (as of early 2018).
