Reviews for Jordan tour, tailor made


review 5 Nov 2019

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

Petra was vast and amazing. We first visited it by night (not included in trip) and then spent two long days walking round Petra, covering 15km each day. We were sorry when we turned our back to the Treasury for the last time.

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

Book a couple of days to relax at the end at the Dead Sea. The vacation is great, but has some long days and early starts, and it was nice to be able to relax, swim and float in the Dead Sea at the end

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

Our driver and guides were local and we had one lunch with a local family - though were surprised this was in a modern house rather than something more "local". Environmentally there was too much plastic - handed out in water bottles in the car (which we refused), large amounts in lunch boxes, and even in the local lunch with the family we were given water in single use plastic cups (foil sealed) and where we ate was covered with a single use plastic covering which was gathered up with the scraps at the end of the meal to be thrown away. We visited several nature reserves and hope the fees trickle down to help conservation.

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

A great vacation. A few issues with guides and hotels, but nothing major
