Jordan
The true crossroads of the Middle East, the ancient kingdom of Jordan offers visitors a beguiling array of historical and archaeological wealth ... Jerash, an exquisitely preserved Graeco-Roman city, with so many of its remains still standing; Wadi Rum, the strange and haunting desert beloved by Lawrence of Arabia, ideally visited on camelback or four-wheel drive; and, most famous of all, Petra, the ‘rose-red city,’ whose treasury facade is known throughout the world, and is reached only by winding on horseback through the Siq, a tremendous crack in the stone between huge towering cliffs.
Two words, Greg Utterly unforgettable! [etr tour leader] Carole was awesome! You can be assured that we will be using your services again. Meanwhile, can you send me a copy of etr's trip to China and Tibet, as I would love to get a group of teachers and parents together to do it soon?. L.M., IB Coordinator, Rome

The territory of both Old and New Testaments, settled by Greeks, Romans and Arabs, including the legendary Bedouin, Jordan offers deep layers of history embedded in a remarkable land. One of the most striking features of the landscape are Jordan’s desert castles, built at the time of the Crusaders, which run up the spine of the land from the Red Sea to Syria. Amman, the capital, is a modern city built on an ancient foundation across several hills, and crowned by the ruined Temple of Hercules. The Dead Sea, shared with Israel, is the lowest point on earth, 400 meters below sea level, and famously salty.

We have had an exceptional trip and the students have thoroughly enjoyed the week. Please thank your staff for putting together a comprehensive Jordan itinerary which exposed the students to a variety of sites and experiences.EB, Singapore

An etr Jordan Adventure combining history, archaeology, geology and geography, with the right dose of rest & recreation to ease things along, is surely the ideal way to visit this fascinating, still little-touristed land.

Our Airline Partners

airlines

For over 24 years etr has enjoyed partnerships with the world’s leading airlines including British Airways, Thai Airways, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Singapore Airlines, LAN Airlines, Royal Jordanian, South African Airlines, Swiss International, Air France, Austrian and Cathay Pacific, amongst others. And as airline agents we can secure for you the lowest available fares, even from remote locations, and even from some of Europe’s budget airlines. What we often suggest to many of our out-of-Europe client schools is for them to get a fare from a local agent and we’ll get one from our airline contacts here…and then use the lowest one. As we do not mark up airfares, you benefit financially. Take advantage of our flight expertise…all at no cost to you.
