review 20 Mar 2017

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

The scenery is amazing In Jordan, incredible gorges, rock formations as well as good variety. In terms of ancient cultures - Jerash and Petra stand out. The people are very friendly and its very safe.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Cycling was pretty easy as long as you can do 30 kms comfortably you should be fine. Women take a gel seat cover or your own saddle.

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

Stayed in local hotels and ate local restaurants. However, having a large coach for just 18 of us and using gallons of bottled water (when the tap water was fine) was not very eco friendly.

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

4/5 Was disappointed with the cycling as didnt do as much as I expected spending too long in the coach and being made to go in gift shops! Dead sea was a non event - 1 hour would have been plenty, could have done some nice cycling around the dead sea that day instead. Group was great and guides all fantastic.
