The 3 day trip to Jordan included a city tour to Jerash and Amman, visit to Petra and jeep safari in Wadi Rum. We stayed in Bedouin camps which gave us an authentic experience to the Bedouin lifestyle and a special mention to the tea that they served. Although, it was too cold (3 degree celsius) we were provided with 4 blankets which was sufficient to protect us from the cold. We were a group of 40 people but everything was on time. I am a vegetarian, and had no difficulty finding vegetarian dishes and the buffet menu had more vegetarian dishes than non-vegetarian. Our guide Mahdi provided us details to the social and cultural aspects of Jordan, he was even open to political and economical questions. As far as the border crossing is concerned it should not be a problem unless you are carrying your passport and money for the entrance and exit to Jordan. The time provided at each stop was sufficient and we were not hurried from anywhere.

Rhania our guide was amazing !!!! The excursions are fantastic well organized the weather is well managed we have always had free time to explore the sites the food was excellent in all the places where we stopped! The Bedouin camps at the top! I recommend without any reservation I loved it !!!!

Incredible experience. From start to finish this tour was extremely well organised. Our guide Abdullah was very knowledgeable and entertaining & made this tour even more amazing.

Mahdi was such a great guide. We had a great experience— it was a little colder than we expected but well worth the trip!
