review 7 Nov 2018

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

Visiting Petra was amazing! The country seemed extremely safe and we wandered around Aqaba for hours at night feeling safer than we do in our local town Weston-Super-Mare!

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

Plan carefully your itinerary, some of the transfers eat into you daylight hours with careful route planning this could be minimised.

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

Yes the local economy benefits from tourism and they are extremely friendly and welcoming indicating to me that they understand and appreciate the contribution it makes.

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

We had a great time, the local agent did our itinerary which ran like clockwork. Jordan is a warm friendly and very welcoming destination with much to see and learn about we would recommend it to anyone.

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

Visiting Petra.

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

If you're in good health/happy with hiking - recommend min 2 days at Petra (ask for a guided walk on day 2 through some of the other wadis to get to Petra/or go to Little Petra - supposed to be v good too), and a full day in Wadi Rum. Movenpick hotels are fabulous (the one opposite entrance at Petra v recommended for location). Sinai Divers (esp dive instructor John & wife Tracey) in the Tala Bay Movenpick resort is strongly recommended. For Red Sea diving (steer clear of Camel Divers). Eating better, and cheaper, if you go into Aqaba at night rather than stay in Tala bay.

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

Yes - supported guides and local drivers. Guides talked to us about conservation issues, esp Bedouin degrading some of the tombs in Petra; the overall water shortages & drop in Dead Sea level. Depressing to see the amount of plastic litter, especially around Amman.

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

5/5 - thank you to Areej at the tour company - she was helpful and polite when we needed them (couple of times the drivers turned up late; there was a mistake over provision of picnic lunches one day, which meant I paid). All the drivers and guides were polite, welcoming and great company.
