EF Go Ahead Tours is set to introduce its first tour dedicated to Jordan, starting in April 2024. Tapping into the growing interest of travelers in exploring lesser-visited regions, the “Jordan History & Culture: Amman, Petra, and the Dead Sea” tour promises an immersive journey into Jordan’s rich history, culture, and natural wonders.
This small group tour will guide travelers to explore remarkable ancient sites, including the UNESCO-listed Petra, as well as the captivating natural beauty of locations such as the Wadi Rum desert and the unique Dead Sea. Moreover, participants will have the chance to engage with the local culture through hands-on experiences, such as a soap-making class at a women-supported cooperative and a calligraphy lesson.
Each EF Go Ahead Tours itinerary covers all essential transfers and accommodations, allowing travelers to savor free time for personal exploration in between group meals and guided tours.
Heidi Durflinger, President of EF Go Ahead Tours, expressed enthusiasm for the launch of their Jordan tour, highlighting the beauty of the country and the unique experiences the itinerary offers. The collaboration with the Jordan Tourism Board is a testament to their commitment to fostering positive, lasting impacts through partnerships with Jordanian locals, including visits to women’s cooperatives and environmental nonprofits.
In response to the partnership, Malia Asfour, Managing Director of the Jordan Tourism Board, North America, voiced excitement and shared how the tour aligns with the values of sustainable tourism, contributing to the well-being of local communities and travelers alike. She emphasized the significance of building sustainable relationships in the industry and expressed gratitude to EF Go Ahead Tours for their cooperation, looking forward to welcoming their travelers to Jordan, known for its hospitality and natural beauty.
