Overall rating

(10 reviews)

The return flights worked great. Just a little more precise information about the flights in advance would have been better. Picking up on site and crossing the border were also great. The time in Petra was short but if you hurry you can still see a lot of it. Guide was also great.

Everything was well coordinated, airport, border , camp, multi step complex tour went very well. The camp was very good, the food delicious! the people were friendly, courteous , the group was fun! Petra a must see. Highly recommend this activity.

Petra is a must-see; Kareem went out of her way to organize food, etc. for us beyond the actual offer 😊 Anyone who pays overpriced prices for tricked-out souvenirs when stopping at a rest house has only themselves to blame (as a tip 😉)

It works perfectly. The only thing is that it is activated via QR code. So you need to have another device available from which to frame it

Setting up the eSim was easy and the connection was really good everywhere in Israel!
