Magnificent Tour, Magnificent Landscapes and Incredible and Surprising City of Petra! The Bedouin camp is amazing! Electricity and Wi-Fi and private tiled bathroom. Refectory under tent with a magnificent buffet! Crossing the Israeli-Jordanian border a little laborious but it gives you time to get to know the other companions… If you go around in winter, bring warm and waterproof clothes and a light pair of gloves because it is very cold once the sun has set… Beware also of the Bedouins who, despite their legendary sympathy, do everything to rip you off because no price is displayed… Apparently everything is fake and comes from China… to see… The 15-minute horseback ride in 20 dinars ends in 40 with a welcome tip for the Canasson…:-) After calculation, it represents almost $60 for 15 minutes… easy enough !

There were some mistakes and delayed replies, which made me feel anxious. But get your guide and travel agent fixed as soon as they could. Apart from that, all the experience of travel was great. Some tips for future guests, desserts are very cold, especially with Jeeper. After rushing out for the border, the weather was warm. Took off the big coat and the luggage was in different vain. Going to desserts directly without enough clothes. It was really cold on the Jeeper.

Meravigliosa esperienza nel deserto, abbiamo poi deciso di dormire nel campo tendato del beduino che ci ha fatto da guida perché innamorati del deserto!!

Had an amazing trip! Everything we needed was arranged and we still had some time to explore ourselves. Would definitely recomend!

Excellent visit! Personal care with a lot of benevolence and kindness!
