Fantastic way to see the sights of Jordan! A great mixture of activities and adventures to suit any level of fitness! A must for all who would like a taste of everything Jordan has to offer!
- What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Petra is definitely the highlight of this trip, and with two full days there, there is plenty of time to explore its vastness and pure beauty! I can tell you how amazing it is, how mind-blowingly fantastic it is, how you will be seduced by its beauty and wonder...but nothing will prepare you for quite how perfect it actually is. There is so much to see, so much to learn and such an adventure to have there!
- What did you think of your group leader?
- Our group leader Sami had a fantastic wealth of knowledge about the entirety of Jordan. It was amazing at quite how much information he knows without any prompts or notes! He also kept us entertained with his 'jokes' and funny tales!
- Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
For all those on their first adventure like I was, remember to take a zip-up fleece and some light long trousers. I took one pair of 3/4 length trousers, and a long cardigan, which were fine, but always a good idea to have a backup pair, and the fleece for walking up at the High Place in Petra, if a little windy!
You do not need to take too much with you in your case! I took about 5 capped sleeve tops and just washed them in the sink of the hotels as I went along...they dry by the morning if you hang them up!
Take a waterproof camera for the boat trip in Aqaba too! I was so glad I did!
- Is there anything else you would like to add?
I had the most fantastic time on this trip! I was so happy and excited each day, because the trip gives so much to you! I have to say that I was really looking forward to going, and it actually exceeded my expectations by miles!
It is a brilliant way of seeing a spectacular amount of thing, and learning so very much, on a personal and also informative level! There is so much to see, so much to do, so much to learn and lots of fun to be had along the way! If you are looking for an adventure without the hiking, then this is the trip for you! You will not be disappointed!
I went as a single female in her late 20s. I felt safe at all times. I made some fantastic friends and had one of, if not THE best time of my life.
