Tour Trips in Jordan

Do you want to come and check out Jordan?


Do a tour trip.

Here are some hotels, transportation,  restaurants and tourismsites that are not expensive

and good quality.


I have tested them myself. I live in Jordan.


If you follow this tour you will not need a tourguide or anyone helping you. You will be independant and you will save money on:


transportation

hotels/accommodation/shops

food

and no tourguides bothering you for money and tips


step 1:

book a ticket on www.skyscanner.com

Do not book directly from America to Jordan. That is very expensive.

Book from America to Brussels Belgium 

and then from a ticket from Brussels Belgium to Amman Jordan.

This flight route is way cheaper than any other flight. Choose the cheapest airliner.

Don't bring a lot of luggage.


step 2:

Buy the Jordan Pass

This pass includes a visa and free entrance to more then 40 tourism sites in Jordan.

It will save you a lot of money and frustation

get it here


Step 3: 

after arrival at the airport go here 

this place is at the main exit of the Queen Alia Airport Amman

where you can get a cheap bus to the next location on this tour.

A taxi will cost you 25-30jd (24/7)

but the local bus only cost 3jd (8 am - 8 pm)

you save 22 jd


Step 4:

Go to the Jordan River Hotel

this hotel is in down town Amman ("Wastal Ballad")

very cheap, clean and good quality

(10jd per day for 2 people, 1 double room)

tips in jordan:


religion: 

During Ramadan 24 April - 24 May do not eat in public

you can get in trouble with the police for that


attitude:

be friendly and have a postive vibe

Jordanians will ask you: "where are you from?"

But you must not see it like something negative.


They will offer you to drink tea or coffee with them or even eat with them.

Just go along and accept the invitation.


Don't shake hands with woman. Just say "Salaam" which means "peace"


clothing:

woman & girls: wear wide skirts / dresses at ankle lenght

no cleavage


money:

always have 10 jd in coins and 1jd bills with you for the taxi/busses/ and beggars on the streets


watch out for aggressive salesmen on the streets.

to keep them away say: "Le shoukran" which means: "No thank you".


you will see women and children beggars; give them coins, no bills


taxi's

do not get in a taxi that has no pricemeter; you will get tricked and pay too much

a normal ride in Amman is between 2 jd - 6 jd


local public coaster busses in Amman

cost 0,35 jd - 0,60


local public big busses in Amman

0,35 jd - 0,40 jd
