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

Every day was a new experience but staying in a tented camp in the Wadi Rum and visiting a local Bedouin family was the most memorable. The men talked to the head of the family while we visited the women and girls. Sitting on cushions drinking tea, the eldest girl practised English phrases on us from her book. Because it was so dark in the desert we were able to see thousands of stars and it was completely quiet.

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

Take good walking shoes or sandals, so you can take part in all the hikes and walks. The Jordanians were all very friendly so learn a few basic words.

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

We stayed in a village house and a small hotel in Amman so that benefited local people. Plastic waste appears to be a big problem in Jordan and I am afraid we added to it as although we took refillable water bottles, we still bought a lot of bottled water.

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

Amazing trip with a good mix of different experiences and activities.

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

Petra was even better than I expected.

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

Get small change ASAP so that you can tip easily, as it is expected. Buy bottles of water from the shops before you travel (though the guide did provide some)

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

Clearly Jordan needs tourism as part of its economy to help them restore the fantastic sites that they have, so I will be telling all my friends to go. It is a safe and marvellous country

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

Loved the holiday

review 4 Nov 2016

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

Not thrilled with the hotels selected. In 3 out of 4 cases, they were significantly below the 4-star level paid for.

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

This tour is a disjointed group of local tour people. So, the reality is that no one is responsible for your needs from beginning to end. They shift the responsibility around and many times you are left without a guide, any knowledge of what hotel you are supposed to be in and what the pickup time/place is for the next day.

Would not recommend the holiday provider or this tour

review 6 Mar 2015

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

Walking around Petra on a beautiful sunny day, we had the whole place practically to ourselves - and then walking back at sunset when all the sandstone turning pink, breath taking. We also had a fun night at the Bedouin camp and had a good laugh floating around the Dead Sea!

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

Wrap up warm for Amman's cold evenings. Try the Turkish baths, not as relaxing as we expected but surely will leave you with some good stories to tell

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

It is a good time to go as the whole country is struggling to keep the tourists interested because of the upsets in the neighbouring countries. Jordan is safe and a lot of communities rely on the tourists for their income.

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

Brilliant
