We’re Celebrating 300,000 Facebook ‘Likes’ by Sending You to Jordan!

If you’ve been following us on Facebook you know we’ve been hinting for a few weeks now about a big announcement once we reach 300,000 ‘likes’ on our page. Well, we’re finally here! A few months back we asked the ‘G-Nation’ on Facebook where they’d like to take an adventure with us and Jordan received the most votes.

Yes we’re sending YOU on our Highlights of Jordan adventure! Plus our friends over at Visit Jordan are throwing in free airfare!

All you need to do is check out this blog during Jordan Week (August 13-17). Each day we’ll post a new article about Jordan and ask a trivia question at the end. Simply provide the correct answer and you are entered. Pretty simple huh? Come back each day that week, because you can enter up to five times to increase your odds of winning the adventure of a lifetime to Jordan!

Here’s what you will get to experience on our Highlights of Jordan adventure:

  • You’ll start off arriving in the city of Amman, which is Jordan’s capital and largest city.
  • Visit the ancient Roman town of Jerash and then make your way to the Dead Sea.
  • A tour of Petra, which is celebrating its 200th anniversary of being rediscovered.
  • A Wadi Rum 4×4 excursion during the day followed by a traditional dinner at a Bedouin desert camp.
  • An optional snorkeling excursion in Aqaba.
  • Finally back to Amman.


So check back here August 13 for your chance to win and thank YOU again for making G Adventures the most liked adventure travel company on Facebook!

    I would dearly love to visit Jordan again ,my last visit was at the end of WW2 whilst serving in the middle east and found the people so friendly.I began listening to radio jordan in the early days through the medium of shortwave and made many friends at the station most of which are still my friends today.Among my proud possessions are many Q.S.Ls from Radio Jordan and a letter from His Majesty the late King Hussein from his private office at The Royal Hashemite Court.
