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

Petra and Wadi Rum

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

You can do Amman Citadel, Roman Theatre, Jerash, Madaba and Mount Nebo all in one day. Go off the trails in Petra, and do the alternative routes with the guide

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

Partially yes

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

The vacation provider was exceptional in their help and support. All the staff were very friendly. They had exceptional guides both in Petra and Jerash. We had one dedicated driver throughout our journey, which made things even much easier. Their sole purpose was to show Jordan in its own form, just exactly what we asked for. Were there any hiccups? Not really, unless you are one of those who complain about 5-10 minutes delay here and there, we certainly were not!!! Thanks again for all!!!!

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

Twofold really: 1. Two full days in Petra, there is so much to see in this ancient city that even two full days (and a night tour) did not do it justice. An amazing place. 2. Three days Wadi Rum camel safari with guide, cook and very basic camping as you go. This was a truly spiritual experience, the night sky, the silence, the unflappability of the camels truly amazing and so authentic.

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

If you can make the time then do a camel safari rather than the tourist style camping and four wheel drive version. Bedouin food, cooked on a camp fire of sticks by a real Bedouin, stories of the Bedouin way and of tales handed down through the generations.

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

Definitely: The Wadi Rum Bedouin people depend upon tourism to exist while maintaining their families and lifestyle in the traditional manner. Without tourism the young people would leave and head to the city to earn a living and thus lose their cultural ties. The various guides used in Petra, Jerash, Mt Nebo and the Our tour guide all depend upon tourism for a living which of course extends through their families and communities.

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

The best ever. It is difficult to rate something that has been so profoundly stirring. The sights were spectacular, the colours simply amazing, the people so friendly and helpful and with little or no drama moving around what is potentially a difficult part of the world I would have to say 10/10.

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

This is such a difficult question to answer. The whole vacation from beginning to the end was fantastic. Jordan is so safe: the people are so friendly and welcoming. We visited Petra and Petra by night, Jerash, Karak, the Jordan River, Bethany beyond the Jordan, Dana, the Dead Sea, Amman and we also spent 3 days on a camel safari in the desert, living as Bedouins. It was a vacation with a difference and one we will not forget.

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

I can only speak from our experience and I would say that our tour operator made this a vacation of a lifetime. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We travelled extensively and their support was with us every step of the way. Don't be deterred from going to Jordan, because you don't think its safe - Jordan IS safe. It's welcoming, friendly and the people are lovely. I cannot praise our tour operator enough, they absolutely made this vacation for us. Thank you.

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

Yes we did feel that we were giving something back to the local people. They were such friendly, helpful people and genuinely pleased to see you and to welcome you to their country. It was good to be able to give a little back to them.

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

This was one of the best vacations we have ever had and we have traveled to many different parts of the world. The vacation was good, but the staff made it great and it was a vacation we will always remember. We are very grateful to them all.
