1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Petra was just as stunning as expected, if not more so! I also enjoyed the desert experience at the Wadi Rum Space Village Luxury Camp which I would thoroughly recommend. It's the Bedouin version of glamping - nicer than some hotels!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

We used this op in the end and Liddy was extremely helpful and thorough.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Although I saw no direct evidence of this I hope it's true. Certainly our Egyptian guide was very knowledgeable and we discussed politics frequently - I feel like we learned a lot about the issues facing Egypt currently. The same would be true of our driver in Jordan, Naim. I felt they were bothvery open about what they were proud of and what concerns both countries faced.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Absolutely excellent - I can't wait to return!

review 9 Nov 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Being up in a hot air balloon at sunrise over the river Nile floating over the Valley of the Kings. Quiet, magical and some wonderful views.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take a little bit of time to read up on Egypt before - you will get more out of the trip.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes it benefitted local people. The people in the places that we visited desperately need more people to come and visit.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

As good and as memorable as any place that we've been to. This was the first time we've been with a guide over a 9/10 day vacation and it was made enjoyable as all the logistics, research etc that I would normally do for this sort of trip was taken out. It meant that we did more without having our energy used on the organisational stuff.
