Tour operators become familiar with the Jordan Trail

USAID BEST in collaboration with the Jordan Trail Association conducted two familiarization (FAM) trips for local tour operators. The FAM trips allowed the tour operators to explore the trail as well as gave them the opportunity to connect with local service providers. The first FAM trip covered the northern most region of the trail (Um Qais to As-Salt) and the second FAM trip covered the middle region (As-Salt to Dana). Over 45 tour operator representatives, licensed tour guides and service providers were able to connect through the FAM trips. A third FAM trip will be conducted, covering the southern-most region of the Jordan Trail. USAID BEST continues efforts to promote the Jordan Trail as an adventure tourism product on a national and international level.
