Travel to a country unlike any other with a trip to the historic and beautiful Jordan. The robust and diverse landscape of Jordan is the perfect place to discover how incredible the Middle East truly is. Visiting Jordan can feel like revisiting a different era of time; film lovers will recognize the distinct locations of the country used in films like Lawrence of Arabia and the Indiana Jones series.
A Mediterranean vacation should be on everyone’s bucket list and one destination that will be a trip of a lifetime can be tours of Jordan to satisfy that seaside vacation. Not to mention that tours of Jordan can be enlightening for the traveler, history that dates back to the time before Christ is on full display all across the beautiful country that hosts millions every year. To settle on a travel itinerary that will accomplish all your goals, IBMT Tours is the only company to show you this sparkling country at its best, up close and personal. Movie buffs will recognize some of the vistas in Jordan that dates back over 3000 years as Hollywood blockbusters like Lawrence of Arabia and the Indiana Jones franchise were filmed in the country. As a gateway to three continents, Jordan is truly a cosmopolitan nation that finds its foundation in the Arabic culture. From the coast of the Mediterranean to the Jordan River, the country offers a host of activities to make a travelers vacation a fulfilling one, beaches, ancient cities, and sweeping deserts are all part of the diverse nature that the country presents for visitors to Jordan. Tours of Jordan can be hiking tours of mountainous regions, visits to the Red Sea and many cities and settlements that are part of the unique history that is endemic to the Middle East. In Amman, the capital of Jordan, you can see the best of the old world combined with new world amenities that will be stunning for the eye and the culinary delights will be gastronomically satisfying. No visit to Jordan would be complete without a visit to the Dead Sea. It sits at the lowest point of the Earth’s surface and the intensity of the salt crystals in the water allow effortless floating when you take the plunge into the water. A long history that has produced a character like no other, Jordan is a must-see country when you look for the vacation you can tell your grandchildren about.
• As we mentioned, Amman is the capital of the country and it is one city that will rival other major cities in the world for beauty and history as the cultural hub of the country. Attractions include Mount Nebo, the Amman Citadel, the Roman theatre, and a visit to a sixth-century church that holds the Madaba Map. Horseback riding through the ‘Siq’ (canyon) is a popular activity to show off the terrain around the city of Amman, visit the Treasury of El Khazneh – a tomb of the Nabatean king, and the field of tombs along with many pieces of ancient architecture that dot the area and are easy to access.
• A visit to the 'Red Rock' city known as Petra is just a short hop from Amman and offer the visitor many activities. Petra is known as ‘Sela Edom’ that translates into the red rock an ancient capital from the third century BC for a lost civilization. In Petra, you can see buildings that are set into mountains and that is one of the most important pieces of history that the Middle East has to offer. Petra, in the early days of the settlement, was a stop for many traders that offered art, culture, and trade that was influenced by the many different cultures that passed through Petra to other points in the Middle East.
• With the proximity of Jordan to Israel, you can combine your vacation stay with a trip to two major cities, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Crossing the border from Jordan, you arrive in Tel Aviv with lots of activities that will be waiting for time and energy to visit. Tel Aviv has been described as an Avant-Garde city and it is reflected in the Neve Tzedek district of the city, trendy boutiques, handcrafted clothing, and a farmer’s market are part of the experience here. As a cultured city, art galleries and museums dot the city as it shows off the best and brightest of Israel has to offer. Sitting on the banks of the Mediterranean Sea, cruises and beach activities are part of the allure of the world-class city.
• Jerusalem shares a cultural bond with the Muslim and Christian communities and it reflected in the sites to see and places to visit. See the Western Wall and say a prayer. The Church of Holy Sepulchre dates back to the fourth century and is a Christian basilica that some Christians believe is where is where the Tomb of Christ is located. Temple Mount is a Christian, Jewish and Islamic site that is mentioned in the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Dome of the Rock is a holy Islamic site that has a golden dome atop the shrine that was built in 690 AD. Many more historic sites await your pilgrimage and a trip to Jerusalem wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial and education centre.

We recently returned from a IBMT Tour for our son’s Bar Mitzvah and we all agree that it was the best vacation that we have taken to date. The tour was well organized and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. The events that they include in the tour include everything “must see” in Israel and activities that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between. The tour allows for activities for all ages and accommodates anyone who wants to do more or less than they have planned. It is ...
To Ornan and IBMT Tours staff,
We just got back from tour with IBMT for our Bat Mitzvah Tour in Israel.
We are so glad we have chosen the right company for our tour as I can’t express my words of how wonderful this tour company was, starting before we left, the personal service they showed here back home and later the service in Israel with our great tour guide Natalie who was so informative on every place we went and what we saw. It was so wonderful to listen to a ...
The visit to Israel was better than advertised. All of us had an awesome and inspiring vacation or as I call it, an education. Danny is one of the nicest and smartest men I have had the pleasure of meeting. He made the trip so special and I cannot imagine any other person showing us Israel but Danny.
Hotels were great but for Eilat, but no big deal. Food in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv restaurants were delicious. Sheila in Tel Aviv was extraordinary. Dinners at hotels just “so so”. Loved Mitzpe ...
Thank you very much for the IBMT Bat Mitzvah tour we just completed. We had a fabulous time & there were lots of special little parts from the tour that contributed to that. The different experiences for dinner were very special, and I liked the variety of different types of sites/attractions. Our tour guide Natalie was excellent, and I heard good things from the other group about their guide Liat.

Sara / Ornan,
I had a fabulous time on this tour and highly recommend it to anyone interested. We had an especially knowledgeable guide with us Doron Hoffman who as a history major added so much more information and had a great demeanor. I was part of an international group and made some new friends.
"Opting to celebrate our son's bar mitzvah this summer with IBMT is one of the best decisions we've ever made. The itinerary took us to places around the country that I've never experienced on previous trips to Israel. Experiencing our son's bar mitzvah atop Masada as opposed to a more rushed, crowded experience at the wall truly sets IBMT apart from other tour companies. The professionalism of the IBMT staff both in North America and Israel was superb...everything was incredibly well organized and we were heartened ...
