Jordan Private Tours

If you are looking for a private tour in Jordan this page is a great place to start. Not only does it include private tour itineraries, but it also includes tips on choosing and booking a Jordan private tour.

For first-timers in Jordan, planning can get overwhelming, and hiring a private guide can take the guesswork out of planning the best itinerary. No one knows a good itinerary like a local Jordan guide who spends every day traveling around the country.

I have seen plenty of bad itineraries, from both tour operators (who often have never done the tour) and from people who plan to see the country independently, but do not do the proper planning. Jordan private tours will enable you to sit back and relax as your guide or driver will take care of getting you from A to B. Behind the scenes, your private tour guide will take care of the itinerary and logistics while you can enjoy your adventure in Jordan.

A private tour guide in Jordan can offer the expertise that first-timers to the country might not think of. From quick detours enabling visitors to see even more that they never thought could happen to a quick word with an employee of a site that is about to close that does not want to admit more visitors; Jordanian tour guides can often give you more than what you would get if you had shown up on your own.

What to Know About Booking A Private Tour Guide in Jordan

How to choose a guide?

The most important thing about choosing a private tour guide in Jordan is to ensure they are licensed by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities. Taxi drivers and private drivers are quick to offer “guiding” services but are usually not licensed guides (or they would be doing tours not driving cars).

Licensed guides are permitted access to all of the sites in Jordan and often are given priority service in restaurants, handicraft shops, and some sites.

Having a private guide with you means you will not have to hire a local guide inside the tourist sites and they can give you a more detailed experience that a guidebook cannot afford you.

Why choose a Jordan Private Tour Guide instead of a Group Tour?

There are several reasons to book a private tour guide in Jordan instead of a group tour. The first is the option to completely customize your itinerary based on your time in the country, the level of comfort you are looking for, and the sites you want to see.

The second reason why you should consider a private tour guide in Jordan is that they can cater to special situations that group tours cannot always accommodate. If you are traveling as a family, young children have different needs when it comes to having a “pool day” or rest afternoon. Also, large families can benefit from booking a private tour instead of taking up half the spaces on a small group tour. It can also often save you money.

The third reason to book a private tour in Jordan is that it caters to travelers who do not like group tours. If the thought of sitting on a bus from A to B and seeing something then getting back on the bus from B to C just turns you off tours altogether, then a private tour is perfect for you. You can lounge at lunch for as long as you want or stop for take-out shwarma without having to stick to a strict schedule. Jordan private tours offer the ultimate flexibility.
