An oasis of peace in the Arabian desert

 

For many years Jordan has been a relatively peaceful country in a turbulent region. It is a fantastic place to visit for those interested in ancient history and students of the world’s major religions. It is also home to one of the new Seven Wonders of the World – Petra, a rose-red city carved from sandstone rock over 2,000 years ago by the Nabateans. In recent years, Jordan has catered for more exclusive travellers. Voyager has selected the best places for you to stay and enjoy the warm hospitality of the Jordanian people. You’ll also get to sample some fantastic Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food: look out for hummus and flatbread, tasty shawarmas, refreshing mint tabbouleh and the national dish, mansef (lamb and rice).

Sacred sites

 

On a premium-quality Voyager Worldwide tour of Jordan you will get to walk in the steps of the great religious figures. According to religious teaching, Moses (or Musa as Muslims know him) established a town at the Golan heights and Jesus (the prophet Isa in Islam) walked across Lake Tiberius, better known to biblical scholars as the Sea of Galilee. Not only will you get to visit these iconic locations but you will also witness the ancient petroglyphs in Wadi Rum and have a chance to swim… or rather float in the lowest place on earth – the salty Dead Sea.

In safe hands

 

Travel to any country in the Middle East is going to raise the issue of safety. Yet, many tourists express their surprise at how safe they felt in Jordan. This is partly down to the low crime rate but also because the local people go out of their way to be hospitable. You can be reassured that Voyager’s experienced team will use their extensive knowledge to produce a safe, premium-quality, bespoke tour that will provide a unique contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of your students.

“I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams... ” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
“One of my favourite places in Jordan is Wadi Rum: it's so rich in history. It's almost a desert environment but - unlike the Sahara, which has always been traversed by very few people - it has been used as a thoroughfare for trading people for thousands of years. Camping out in Wadi Rum is the best way to experience traditional Bedouin hospitality...” Andrew Appleyard, archaeologist and tour guide, the Guardian, 2009.
“Jordan may dwell on its image of desert desolation but, in truth, if you’re dreaming of vast dunes, gloomy bazaars and fading romance, go elsewhere. If, instead, you’d like a handle on how a young, cheerful Arab country is starting to tell some new stories about itself, Jordan merits a second look.” Matthew Teller, the Independent, 2012.
