Although this is a cultural trip some days, such as the time spent in Petra, can be long and tiring. To walk up to the High Place of Sacrifice on days 4 or 5 you should have a reasonable level of fitness. Your leader will be able to offer you further advice about the walk.
Whilst camping in Wadi Rum please be aware that although the campsite does have plumbed toilets and running water there are no showers and facilities are basic.
Ramadan The holy month of Ramadan runs from 28th June to 27th July in 2014. During this time the opening hours to sites and museums may be affected by an hour or two. The leader will be aware of this and adapt your day to accommodate this. Purchasing snacks and meals during the day may also be affected slightly. It does need to be recognised that the energy levels of our local staff may be a bit lower during this period. Having said this, Ramadan is a unique time to visit a Muslim country - each evening the streets empty for an hour while everyone breaks their fast, and there's a feeling of festivity in the air every night.
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 20, plus leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Leisurely/Moderate. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
Exodus is always looking to improve our current itineraries and to offer something different. With many new trips this year, there is something unique and different to try every year.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
Where you stay is a crucial part of a holiday, and we have gone to great lengths to find accommodation that provides extra comfort, character, convenience and value. Five-star hotels won’t feature on the agenda, but itineraries guarantee a greater degree of comfort after your day’s efforts.
