By Nahrain John @karryontravel23 Oct 2017Strong demand for the Middle East’s enchanting culture, ancient heritage and exotic spices, is taking Travelmarvel and its guests somewhere they’ve never been before – Jordan. Late last week, the tour operator revealed that it would host its first ever trips through the Hashemite Kingdom as an extension to its “successful” Egypt departures. As part of the first Jordan trips taking off in 2018, guests will be exposed to the heart of Jordanian culture with visits to the UNESCO world heritage-listed wonder, Petra, the unique capital of Amman, and the majestic and mysterious swim spot of the Dead Sea.
