5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide 13 Sep 2013
By Maureen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Would recommend this book for a traveller wanting to get a fairly comprehensive overview of the country before their visit. There are good descriptions of the major sites with excellent photography. Enjoyed reading about the background history of Jordan. The recommendations for hotels and restaurants are discretely positioned in the guide so it would be good for visitors with pre booked accomodation etc. I am not sure if the book is detailed enough to act a guide book whilst actually visiting a site such as Petra.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Book 10 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book goes into great depth and so is very informative.
I will be visiting Jordan this year and this book will be coming with me.
The topics covered in this book are well laid out and the many colour pictures are great.
I am reading this book in advance of my trip as you would read any book, for the history and culture,
having cherry picked the places I will be visiting and practical travel details.

I have most of the series in my native language but for some reason I couldn't find Jordan so I got the English version. Excellent and comprehensive country guide from an equally excellent series!

3.0 out of 5 stars Insight Guide to Jordan 30 Aug 2013
By patricia a. white - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Disappointing that the Guide doesn't contain better maps, especially maps of Amman that are legible on my iPad. And that there's little info about walking in Amman, restaurants, etc.
