F.A.Q.
Is there any luggage restriction?
Good news, there isn’t any luggage restriction on our tours as long as you’re happy to carry your own luggage! If your tour includes camp stay, we highly recommend you to pack a smaller bag as well, so that you can leave your luggage on the bus.
F.A.Q.
Do I need to tip?
Tips are a common reward for service staff in Jordan. Your tour guide and crew will be especially appreciative and honored with this kind of traditional gratitude at the end of your tour.
F.A.Q.
What if I join the tour late?
You can join a tour late or miss the Welcome Meeting on Day 1 if you inform us prior to the departure date. Please note that it will be your responsibility to make the necessary arrangements to catch up with the group. Please contact us at info@traveltalktours.com or +44 208 099 9596. For all emergencies, you can contact +44 208 099 7536.
F.A.Q.
Will my tour be affected if I travel during Ramadan?
Ramadan (Ramazan) is the Islamic holy month, during which Muslims fast from sunrise until sunset. Fasting means 'nil by mouth' including food, water and cigarettes. Ramadan dates move every year, please see below the dates for 2020 and 2021. Some local cafes and restaurants close during the day; however tourists are not expected to fast, and there are many cafes and restaurants that stay open to cater for you. During Ramadan, you are encouraged to show your respect by not walking around in public eating, chewing gum, smoking or drinking (especially alcohol). It is fine to do so in your hotel or in a cafe/restaurant recommended by your tour leader. Your tour leader will organise lunches and dinners to make Ramadan easier for you. During the month you will find that tourist sites often close early to allow staff to return home in time to break their fast, and shops often open late and close early.
    Ramadan Dates:
  • 24 April – 23 May 2020
  • 12 April – 11 May 2021
F.A.Q.
Should I bring sleeping bag for the tours with camping accommodation?
Sleeping bags are not requried for camping as we stay in sedentary campsites, and provide bedding and blankets during the winter months.
F.A.Q.
What should I pack for my trip?
We would recommend to bring a swimsuit & small towel, head scarf, and comfortable walking shoes for all Jordan tours. Make sure to check the Predeparture file under the Overview section of each tour online for detailed information and suggestions.
