The itinerary included time in Amman, Petra, Jerash and at the Dead Sea, and combined the classic tourist sights along with privately-hosted dinner parties by chic locals and an evening in the desert at Wadi Rum.
“The mix of history, natural beauty and, yes, relevance to current world affairs make Jordan a country that must be visited,” wrote Indagare founder Melissa Biggs Bradley when she returned from hosting the first Insider Trip there in May 2011.
Currently, there are no Insider Trips to Jordan scheduled for 2013, however our Jordan itinerary can be adapted for groups of private travelers. Insider Trips are open to members-only. Alumni of previous trips are given priority access, followed by our Connoisseur-level members. For more information, contact our Bookings Team.
TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST JORDAN TRIPS:
“Our night in the Wadi Rum desert was like being an actress in a movie…watching the sunset behind the sandstone mountains and then arriving at our pristine “camp” was both humbling and exhilarating. The Indagare trip to Jordan afforded me the opportunity to gain even a tiny crumb of insight and understanding for the Middle East.” Indagare Member
“Jordan really was a life-changing experience. In turns educational, spiritual and above all, a lot of fun! The Insider Trips really are just that, in the course of one week you feel as though you have learned more about a country than you would if you lived there a year. The organization is flawless and the enthusiasm infectious! The Insider trips are beyond words – the orchestration of the unique destinations, people and activities makes it an experience of a lifetime. I am now officially an insider addict!” Melanie Vere-Nicol
