Description of Highlights of Jordan, small group tour

On this eight day highlights of Jordan tour youíll take in the countryís top sights in the company of a small group of likeminded travellers. After touring the historical highlights of Amman, youíll head for Jerash, one of the world's best preserved Roman provincial cities. Then itís on to Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, where youíll have a full day to explore its many treasures.

The next day is spent in Wadi Rum, where youíll take a jeep tour through the desert and have the opportunity to ride a camel, should you choose. Youíll be camping out in the desert and can either spend the night in a tent, or sleep on a mattress outside underneath the silence of a starry sky. Aqaba is the next destination, with its stunning beaches, fantastic snorkelling and crusaders castle.

After touring all of Jordanís highlights, you get to spend a well deserved day at the Dead Sea. Here you may float in the salty waters or try out a pampering spa treatment. Being at the lowest point on earth is a unique experience; you can't swim in the water no matter how hard you try!

Responsible tourism: Highlights of Jordan, small group tour

Environment

When you book this trip you get to experience the silence of the desert. One of the highlights of the tour is a visit to the protected area of Wadi Rum. The area covers 720 km 2 of dramatic desert wilderness in the South of Jordan. Wadi Rum is also described by T.E. Lawrence as a "vast, echoing moon like landscape".

There is a lot of wildlife in Wadi Rum, but visitors often don't see them all. Besides birds, insects and reptile there are also large species such as the Arabian Oryx. However, the Arabian Oryx and other species, are reduced to very low numbers. That is one of the reasons why the protected area exists now. Conservation fees are included in your entry ticket. The more visitors, the more fees will be available to conserve this stunning desert and its creatures.

A major conservation program is on the way to tackle some challenging environmental problems. To contribute our local guides and drivers ask you kindly to follow the rules and regulations and do all you can to respect the site and its people. This includes leaving no waste behind.

Community

By visiting Wadi Rum you will not only help with conserving the protected area, you will also help the people living in and around Wadi Rum. We make sure that for your desert experience only local people are hired.

Virtually all the people living in and around Wadi Rum are of Bedouin origin and, until recently, led nomadic lives relying on their goat herds. We work with the people who live in Rum Village, the only village located inside the protected area. The services they organise (such as jeep and camel tours), are organised through the Rum Tourism Cooperative. This is a locally-run society that shares the tourism between the villagers. So everyone benefits in an equal way which stimulates and encourages the interaction with tourists. And it also prevents jealousy and other possible negative problems.

You will be meeting some real local Bedouins on your desert experience, they will guide you and show you the most impressive places of the desert.

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


The desert at Wadi Rum, jeep safari and overnight in a Bedouin camp - not touristy as I had feared! The people were unbelievably friendly and helpful - and not just looking for a tip as in some countries such as Egypt. That was a refreshing change.

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


We were glad to overnight at the Dead Sea resorts on the last night so it was just a 45 minute drive to the airport. That's better than ending at the Red Sea, and perhaps having to overnight in Amman.

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


Yes, up to a point. Local people benefited for sure, and I was pleased the Jordanian partner was based locally in Petra.

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


Excellent. The Jordanian tour partner was fantastic, really good itinerary and all delivered.
