We had a fantastic time. Petra was amazing. We had 5 hours there and so we didn't make it to the monastery which was a shame. If we did it again we would choose a tour with a longer time at Petra. We loved Wadi Rum. The luxury 'tent' was more like a chalet- very comfortable, air conditioning/heating and wifi. The sunset was incredible.

It was an amazing experience.We travelled in private in a very confortable car. Our guide was very friendly.I recommend the activity

It was a great tour, nice driver and perfect guide, unfortunately only in English. Highly Recommended.

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

Great time going to the dead sea, easy travel, and great guide!
