Featured Testimonial

"I wanted to extend a huge thank you to your entire team at My Jordan Journey for a fantastic week with my family in Jordan earlier this month. We absolutely fell in love with everything about the country and can’t wait to get back to that part of the world and explore more!

We are already working on plans (ok maybe dreams right now) of returning to the Middle East (and FOR SURE Jordan) in 2017. It was such a fascinating country, the people were amazing! I want to spend days hiking at Petra or camping out in Wadi Rum and weeks exploring the history
of the country!”
