Lynda Holland review 11 Nov 2022
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
Donít pay the enforced £35.00 per person tip money that the tour guide
wants to collect at the briefing meeting.
This will not cover all tips and seems to go directly against the operators stated
policy on tips. Regardless of paying this levy more money was requested to tip
driver and your guide by fellow guests who felt they were not covered by the
£35! Who was then I wonder?
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
Some of the hotels especially the one at Petra had very very shabby and low

Hi Lynda, thank you for your review. Whilst we are pleased to hear you enjoyed visiting Petra, it was disappointing to learn that the standard of some accommodations and the tipping kitty did not meet with your expectations. It was discouraging you did not feel your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation. As a B-Corp, we take pride in our commitment to incorporating responsible travel fundamentals into all that we do and every one of our trips, such as using locally owned and operated accommodations and giving back to the communities we visit through our not-for-profit charitable foundation. We've been able to locate your booking and a member our Customer Care team will be in touch shortly. Thank you again for sharing your experience.
