Don’t mess it up, make it better. We are committed to preserving the cultural and natural resources of host communities and empowering people to have opportunities that improve their lives.


“Very unusual Jordan-based operation, offering the kind of insight and cultural immersion on touring itineraries that is generally extremely hard to find. Detailed knowledge of the whole country and great contacts among local communities means they can get you under the skin of the place quicker than just about anyone else, on a variety of broad general-interest trips and excursions.  A fine choice.”

“Local operator Engaging Cultures offers the chance to approach Petra by camel.  After visits to a community project and a night at the Feynan Ecolodge, you stay at a bedouin camp before riding into the site on a little-used back route.  Three days from £220pp land-only, including accommodation, entry fees and transfers.”

“Engaging Cultures organized a private tour specific to what I wanted. I had searched and asked many tour companies in Jordan and Engaging Cultures was the only one able to accommodate my request… I would not have been able to do this on my own without Engaging Cultures. They are terrific and I cannot recommend them highly enough. It is worth every moment.”


One of the “50 Tours of a Lifetime”.  Our Jordan Insider tour is among the “most authentic, most innovative, most immersive, best-guided, and most sustainable tours” in the world, said Norie Quintos, executive editor of National Geographic Traveler.
