If you're visiting Jordan and organising your travels with a Jordanian DMC / Inbound Tour Operator a Jordanian Visa is now FREE.


That's great news and saves a couple 80 Jordanian Dinar, About $115 USD, £80 GBP or 100 Euros. That's not bad and you only have to spend 3 nights in the country.


So how does it work? Well it's very simple. Drop us a line, let us organise your itinerary, send us your passport details and we'll meet you at the airport, just after you've got off the plan and escort you through customs, collect your baggage and take you to your hotel. The whole process, baggage permitting should take less than 30 minutes from getting off the plane to leaving the airport.


Take advantage of this saving and stay an extra night - it's all possible if you know how. Contact us today for more information.

All food in Jordan is fantastic whether you are eating in a fancy five star restaurant and hotel, a local restaurant downtown Amman on from a street vendor selling tasty fast food. Ainsley Harriott, a UK celebrity chef recently visited Jordan as part of his Channel 4s international street food programme. Not only did he visit some of the lesser known restaurants in Amman but he also visited some of the firm favourites. Watch the full programme on You Tube Here.

If you love street food, you’ll love Amman. Try a shawarma, the Arab equivalent of a hot dog. The very best shawarma in can be bought for a few pennies in Reem, a small hole in the wall shop near the 2nd Circle. It’s always busy and late at night by the young & trendy stop by in their BMWs to top up traditional tucker.


Missed your shave then pay a visit to one of the hundreds of barbers located in every city, town or village in Jordan. Nothing beats a cut throat shave and haircut. You’ll leave feeling a million dollars – make sure you go to one that knows how to thread with cotton – an added plus although it will make your eyes water. This has to be one of the best local experiences in Jordan for little more than a few pounds.


It’s always difficult buying holiday gifts but help is at hand in Jordan with two fantastic shops that provide outlets for local skills. Wild Jordan Nature Shop sells local products made in the traditional way by local people and the Soap house, which wouldn’t be out of place in London or New York, sell a range of hand – made soaps and creams.


Wadi Rum is wonderful but it’s at its best a couple of hours before sunset until a few hours after sunrise. This is when it’s most beautiful. The changing colours of sunset are magnificent and the night time stars are literally on another planet. When you stay in the desert make sure you sleep out in the open under the stars and wake early as the sunrise and early morning light are magical.



Wine in Jordan – you’d better believe it. Jordanian wine is great. Look out for the St George label from the Zumot winery. It’s won several international awards so get glugging.
