If you’re looking for the ultimate family adventure, this 8 day tour of Jordan’s must-see sites will have even hardcore iPad junkies craving for more desert fun!
We know what it’s like with kids today – getting them off their phones and tablets is a never-ending challenge. But this Jordan family tour (read: adventure) will keep everyone happy!
And what’s not to like? This family tour has been especially designed to take in the wonders of Jordan, with a careful balance of fun activities and downtime.
The tour kicks off with us picking you up from the airport and taking you to your hotel in Amman, where you can enjoy the day (depending on what time you land). The next day we head out to the stunning Roman ruins of Jerash, before heading back to Amman and spending time at the interactive Children’s Museum, which includes some amazing exhibitions on Stars and Space, the Human Body, and Ancient Civilizations.
Day 3 sees us head out to Petra – but en-route we stop to enjoy the Roman mosaics at Madaba, and explore the walls and tunnels of the huge crusader castle at Kerak (don’t forget to bring a torch as the tunnels and halls are great fun for children to explore!). We end our day at Petra.
Day 4 is devoted to the wonder of Petra. Included is a 2-3 hour guided tour, lunch, and plenty of free time to trek up to the High Place of Sacrifice and the Monastery – if the kids are up for it (and trust us on this one, the amazing landscape wins over almost every kid!)! In the evening, you can also head out to see the stunning Petra by Night tour (this is not included in the tour price).
Day 5 and it’s time to head the desert! We head down to Wadi Rum, where we get to enjoy a 4×4 jeep tour through the spectacular high cliffs and sands of Wadi Rum. After arriving at our Bedouin camp for the night, we’ll head out for a fun camel ride at sunset and a traditional Bedouin meal.
Day 6 sees us chill out by the Red Sea, as we head down to Aqaba for some beach time. This is the place to get the kids snorkeling – they’ll love it!
Day 7 sees us head back to Amman, but not before we stop by at the stunning salty waters of the Dead Sea. There’s nothing quite like kicking back and floating in these warm, still waters! The kids might struggle at first, but they’ll get the hang of things pretty sharpish!
Your final day is basically yours to enjoy in Amman, before we transfer you to your flight at the airport.
This Jordan family tour takes you to some of Jordan’s must-see sites, while ensuring a focus on your kids and some real family fun! This is a tour that will stay with them forever – and don’t be surprised if they go speechless upon encountering The Treasury in Petra!
