We loved the tour & ride with Ali. We highly recommend to do this safari tour. We were 6 people in one jeep, Ali is a very good driver. We had cold water for free and we get fresh watermelon for break. Ali was a great guide funny and nice he has a lot of expierience as he lives in the desert. The ride was 4 hours where he explained us the nature, animals and the plants. He gives us an idea how Nomad people live and lived in the desert and how they made it to survive. Which plant can be eaten, which one used as soap. How to find water, where to sleep. How to read tracks in the sand. We saw dromedas, ibex, birds and a yellow scorpion. The nature and beeing in the middle of the desert surrounded with nothing then sand and the view at the Dead Sea in over 300m was amazing Contra: The dead sea afterwards. Huge bus group,the "Kalia Beach" super crowded touristic spot. Not nice. Would recommened to split this tour to just do the safari OR even better add a desert sleepover under the stars
Thank you Abraham Tours for our Jordan 3 day trip. We have loved the experience and certainly Petra exceeded our expectations. What an amazing place! Pictures do not do it justice. Wadi Rum is just spectacular and we are now left with memories that will be cherished forever. Our tour guide, Abdullah was friendly and very knowledgeable. Food was great and coach very comfortable. Bedouin camp standards are basic and if you are not a frequent camper you might struggle with basic facilities. There was no heaters provided in tents and during winter season this should be a standard in each tent. No hot water in the morning... No hooks or shelves to put your things on when taking a shower resulted in personal belongings getting wet. Nevertheless, Jordan is an amazing country and I would highly recommend taking this tour but pay for a hotel upgrade if you do mind basic camping standard.
We first did the Desert Safari and it was awesome. The guide picked us up in a Land Rover and we begin our journey immediately. Stopped at three spots along the trail, each having a spectacular view. The second was the Dead Sea, and it was cold, windy, rainy, and the waves were very choppy. We were told the beach was closed but some people went in anyway. There was a camel there at the beach and we were able to at least get a camel ride - bonus!
Nir was my favorite guide ever! he shared so much with our group of five - historical and personal. Such a love for this land. We have different backgrounds and different perspectives, but I enjoyed every single minute of this tour.
The day in Petra was amazing, don't miss the trek to return to the Bedouin camp! (if available)
