Reviews for Jordan archaeology holiday, Beyond Petra


review 13 Nov 2014

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

So many to choose from but Petra by candlelight, swimming in the dead sea and snorkling in the red sea are the ones that come to mind first.

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

Make sure to take advantage of snorkling in the dead sea, do the hike to the high sacrifice place in Petra where you will be rewarded with an amazing view of the treasury and maybe add an extra day or so to your holiday to do some of your own exploring in downtown Amman (and have dinner at hashem's - a remarkably down-to-earth falafel restaurant but worth the visit)

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

We attended local restaurants and went to a few shops that we were told were community based businesses.

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

Unbelievable - we had an amazing time - it lived up to expectations (despite a few niggles wih regard to accomodation in a couple of locations). The guide (Sami) was extremely knowledgeable and the other travellers we met on the tour were a delight to spend time with in a truely remarkable country.
