1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
Going to Petra because its such a massive site and since we had a free day there, I liked being able to go on my own and do my own thing.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
The itinerary is sort of misleading. Not all the items meet expectations, and for the price, the accommodations are sort of cheap.
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Yes. Meeting the local people was cool.
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
It was interesting, but the pace was too fast. Whoever planned the itinerary didn't account for the traffic or road detours. Also some of the stops weren't as described, so half the time I didn't know what to expect.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe encourage our travelers to minimise their use of water and ensure our passengers preserve and do not contaminate the local water supply. Jordan has one of the lowest levels of water availability per capita in the world. Therefore, it is important that as visitors to this desert nation we respect the use of water. Our local leaders are very well trained in advising our passengers in how to conserve this precious commodity during their stay. It may be as simple as timing your showers and ensuring that you reuse your towel when spending more than one night in the same hotel.
Due to the nature of this itinerary and the destination we cannot use public transport. However, we do use local in-country operators for the supply of our private vehicle on this trip. We ensure that the correct size vehicle is used for the group number to avoid wasting fuel. We try to avoid unnecessary use of the vehicle and advise our operators on driving skills to minimise fuel consumption and subsequent CO2 emissions.
PeopleAn important part of travel is mixing with the locals and experiencing real life in a destination. On this trip we stay only in locally owned hotels that are locally staffed, enabling the money you spend to stay within that community. We source local activities that we believe are sustainable to the economy in that they allow the flow of income from visitors to be distributed to a greater audience, rather than remain concentrated with tourism providers. This could be as simple as a meal in a small local restaurant, a home-cooked meal, or staying in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum.
We recognise local issues and actively campaign to address them. Whilst Jordan has drastically reduced the education gap, this tiny desert country continues to have one of the world’s lowest rates of women’s workforce participation at only 13.2 percent. This trip is campaigning for change by encouraging the active participation of women in the tourism industry. As well as, empowering entrepreneurial women who want to develop their own travel businesses.
Our philosophy is to act local and that means respecting the local traditions, such as the wearing of a headscarf for all women at appropriate times and ensuring that both men and women are conservatively dressed (with legs and arms covered). This trip respects local culture and women within that culture. Each country in the Middle East comes with its own unique cultural and societal norms, which can make local interaction challenging for mixed gender groups. This trip allows women to interact with locals in a free and comfortable environment.
