The Lions get their tour underway on Saturday when they take on the New Zealand Provincial Barbarians (8.35am).
The fixture against the invitation XV should represent a soft start to proceedings but the rest of the six-week tour will see the tourists play against all of New Zealand's provincial sides as well as the three All Black Tests.
Many have branded the the schedule lunacy with no break longer than four days between games except a week's rest before the final test.
But Jones, veteran of 110 games for Wales and two previous Lions tours, insists the squad are not concerned about the prospect of 10 games in such a short space of time.

"It gives us a lot to laugh about," Jones said.
"People will always have their opinions, but I think for the most part people are saying things out of concern.
"But it's not supposed to be easy when you come down here, and it's not going to be, so it's a case of getting down to it.
"And the people that want to support us and approach the schedule in the same that the players will are I'm sure the ones who will still be with us at the end."

Premiership Rugby has confirmed that the 2017 tour will be the last in its current format as the new global rugby calendar that will begin in 2020 will not allow for such a long trip.
But Jones is determined to ensure the Lions remains a pinnacle of the sport and a victory in New Zealand would go a long way towards securing its future.
"When I came into the Australia tour in 2013 people were talking about dropping the Lions altogether because we hadn't won a series in so long," Jones added.
"It's funny that you then win one and people want to preserve it for as long as possible.
"So I think there's more responsibility to the Lions jersey than the tour itself or the people who have gone before.
"I think that's the point of note, the point of difference, for us to carry here.
"With the advent of professionalism there's always going to be that question on the Lions' future, because it's businesses as well as organisations putting money into players, and they need to be represented.
"But I think it's something that needs to be preserved, it's what makes rugby special and I'm sure there's a few southern hemisphere teams that would want it to be sustained as well."
