review 7 Jan 2014

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

Truth be told, almost every moment was a memorable moment. It's difficult to choose one. Jerash in Jordan was a surprise. More Roman ruins than I saw in Italy. Petra Kitchen was a lot of fun and now I can prepare what I learned and feel like I'm back in Jordan. Dinner at Fauzi Azar Inn - best meals we had on the tour and we had really good meals. Singing and dancing at Bedouin Camp was great too! I really can't choose one, sorry.

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

Petra By Night can be skipped. Spend more than three hours in Petra.

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

Yes, I do. We stayed in mainly locally-owned accommodations and shopped at local establishments and co-operatives including the store located on the premises of the Madaba School of Mosaics and Petra Kitchen. Tourism is down in Jordan by about 40%, I was told, so I think my group of 10 made a difference.

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

I would rate it a 9 out of 10

review 28 Sep 2013

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

Jordan - particularly Petra which lived up to, and surpassed its reputation

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

Try for an extra day in Petra! Plenty of sunscreen andlight, but good walking shoes. Flipflops for the Dead Sea

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

Tourism was very heavily down because of the Syrian crisis so we felt our visit was helping some of those dependent on tourism. Purely selfishly it meant that nowhere was crowded! We tried to buy from co-operatives and the like eg the workshop at at Madaba.

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

9/10
