Absolutely amazing experience, we would definitely recommend. We were a group of 6 people with our awesome guide Jafar (also famously known across the globe as Mr see you tomorrow!!). Jafar made the experience 100 times better with his humour, knowledge and kindness! Best guide we had. The tour started early in the morning - by about 10-11 am we were in Petra with 5 hours free to walk around the sights. This requires a certain amount of fitness and appropriate shoes and clothing. Then we headed to wadi rum just before sunset (again amazing). We had about an hour free time before dinner (delicious jordanian food). The next day we had breakfast at the camp, then 2 hours on the jeeps around the desert and then on our way to the Red and Dead sea. Beware that when we went they would only allow us to be 2 meters from the shore, claiming the beach is closed (but they had a sign it was open). Ladies also take toilet tissue with you as in a lot of the toilet stops we did there was no tissue.

I don’t even know where to begin!! This tour is absolutely incredible and I highly recommend it. Our driver Jaffar made everything so easy and fun for us. He treated us like family and made us feel very comfortable and welcomed. Every part of the tour was enjoyable, and the sites are incredible. The traditional food was so tasty. Jordan is stunning, with such rich history. The pace of the tour was perfect. I recommend packing light because there is a lot of movement and bringing cash for your convenience. Don’t skip out on this tour!

This is a once in a lifetime experience. But please. Take it from me. Do at least a three day tour. You need a whole day at Petra for sure.

Amazing experience. Magnificent locations, truly memorable and a must see and experience for everyone.

highly recommended for solo traveler, good experience, everything was well organized
