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.

Still traveling but wanted to thank you for planning a marvelous trip. It is truly a trip of a lifetime.
The IBMT Bar Mitzvah tour was fantastic! It was the perfect blend of family time and peer group time, of sites with religious/historic significance and just plain fun. The guide was personable and informative, and even the bus driver was great. All the details were attended to and you didn’t have to concern yourself with or worry about a thing. It was a true vacation. We would highly recommend it to anyone. If you are going to Eilat, Petra is a must!
We went on a church group to the Holyland with IBMT Tours and had a great trip, everything was planned for us perfectly. There was over 123 people in four different bus groups and things went smoothly, I thought it was going to be hectic with that many people in the group but IBMT did a wonderful job and made sure the buses did not go convoy, every bus had its own time table and itinerary for the day, our guide Dani was so knowledgeable and loving. We love you IBMT and we will recommend you guys. Thanks for everything you have done for us.
We just returned from Israel on an IBMT Bar Mitzvah Tour for our three grandsons. We had enough family members to warrant our own bus. After checking out many tour companies we went with IBMT and all of us were glad we did. The hotels were fabulous and the rooms allotted even more so. From the INBAL in Jerusalem, KFAR BLUM in the Galilee, the SHERATON in Tel Aviv, to the ROYAL BEACH in Eilat we couldn’t have asked for more. Our meals were equally excellent. Beginning with a welcome reception at the INBAL to the closing dinner at the CANAAN restaurant in Tel Aviv one and all loved them.
It was a busy tour made even more so by my husband who was determined the grandchildren see “everything”. Fortunately for us, we had the best guide when Ornan (from IBMT) gave us GADI. All of the groups loved their guides but Gadi was special. He was able to reach the kids (ages 7-13) as well as the adults. His knowledge, willingness to adjust the schedule, and good nature gave him a soft spot in all of our hearts. He filled in at Yad Vashem when the guide droned on a bit too much for some of us. He searched out a cemetery where a father, grandfather and great grandfather was buried and proceeded to enlighten us on the rituals and customs of a military cemetery. He adjusted our times to include those little extras. When weather precluded the camels, we visited Qumran. After the Bar Mitzvahs, some wanted to walk down Masada - again, no problem.
We loved everything. Friday night dinner with an Israeli family (coincidentally the husband was from Toronto), meeting the soldiers on the kibbutz, the Druze lunch, sampling different foods at the shuk, the bullet factory and on and on. Although the weather was precarious in December, it didn’t stop us and we were able to celebrate Chanukah in Israel...menorahs everywhere, sufganiyot of every kind, celebrations in the street galore.
Would we recommend this tour...without a moments hesitation. We had a family trip of a lifetime. Thank you also to our bus driver Louie, whom we all loved and who got us around safely.
“Gadi” - what else can we say ... g double o - d, j-o-b. Good job, good job. V-e-r-y-n-i-c-e, very nice, very nice.💕
I cannot imagine a better, more organized, more perfect experience! IBMT went above and beyond all expectations!
Loved the trip! The itinerary was fantastic and really kept us moving. We were able to see and do so much. Best of all was our tour guide Natalie. She was very kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable on every aspect of Israel.
