JORDAN WITH A&KThe letters we receive speak volumes. Whether it's Zuhair 'the walking encyclopaedia', Mohammad's passion for his country's art, religion and history, or Kamal teaching your children to write in Arabic, our brilliant Jordanian guides are an essential ingredient in Abercrombie & Kent journeys to this memorable, beautiful and diverse country. With a team of 30 full-time, multilingual staff and long-established network of top-notch contacts, we offer unique, premium experiences, embracing Jordan's dramatic desert landscapes, historic architecture and supremely hospitable locals.

Helpfully, most sights in Jordan are within an easy hit of the capital Amman, where Greco-Roman remains entwine seamlessly with a modern cosmopolitan city. Head south along the King's Highway - naturally, A&K has the country's most modern fleet of air-conditioned vehicles - there are the mosaics of Madaba (you'll be impressed by the huge Byzantine depiction of the Holy Land, trust us), Kerak's imposing crusader castle and Dana Nature Reserve, some of the oldest continuously inhabited land on earth.
Alongside the scenic drama of Wadi Rum and the Seven Pillars of Wisdom, where our Bedouin guides have been known to source cushions from nomadic camps for their 4x4s, allowing them to offer you impromptu, thrilling and comfortable al fresco rides through the desert, you can be pampered in a Dead Sea Spa, or head south for a blissfully warm dip in the Red Sea with its multi-coloured blizzards of tropical fish.
And, of course, there's Petra. Iconic UNESCO-listed Petra. Jordan's Rose City, with its stone-cut architecture behind a small fissure in the mountains, is simply unmissable.
But whatever the attraction, A&K's knowledgeable guides go the extra mile. From taking you to a discreet shawarma (kebab) joint that's high on taste, low on tourists, to finding a serene cave away from the midday heat and crowds, they'll make your Jordan holiday very special.Show less...
