    The magic places this country has to offer and our driver Khalil made this experience unforgettable. Khalil is a fantastic guide and he was always ready to help us with anything. He would show us the nicest spots for pictures and take us to the best places to eat at. He even surprised us with ice cream and drinks after a long visit at Petra. I was traveling with two friends and in just two days we managed to go on a hike around Petra, drove to Wadi Rum desert and rode 4WD and camels. We slept in bedouin camp and gazed at the shooting starts and at the sunrise the morning after. Took a dive in the Red Sea’s waters at Aqaba and had so much fun getting coated with the Dead Sea’s muds. This tour is a convenient way to explore the most significant places in Jordan if you only have a limited time to spend there. Although it is pretty comprehensive, be ready to pay extra if you would like to have guides and additional activities during your stops. Looking forward to visiting again!
