Floating in the Dead Sea, the first sight of The Treasury after walking through the canyon in Petra, sitting in the middle of the desert watching the sunset, riding a camel in Wadi Rum.......
Danny was very knowledgeable and keen to give us information on all our visits. He was well - organised and did everything he could to assist every member of the group. A very personable leader who engaged with all of his clients.
Check the accuracy of your departure details before you get to the airport! Get that suscreen on as soon as the aircraft lands! This is a full-on, action-packed trip - make the most of your time in Petra.

Petra, Wadi Rum
Yes...enjoyed. Met lots of Jordanians...good people+
Group visas were available at Amman ( at no charge) but we were not aware of this so wasted £85 getting visas from embassy in London

Sleeping under the stars in the desert at Wadi Rum and sunset at the ruins in Palmyra
Bashar was excellent - very enthusiastic, organised and personable. I particularly enjoyed his cultural talks in the evenings. Faisal was less so - he gave confusing instructions and was not as approachable as Bashar. He had excellent historical knowledge though.
More so in Syria where tourism was less obvious than in Jordan.
More so in Syria as Bashar was very good at answering questions and explaining the culture of his country. I felt less in touch with local life in Jordan.
Research the appropriate clothing to wear and don't let little mishaps bother you!

Floating in the dead sea!
Rabi, the tour leader in Jordan, was excellent. We didn't have a tour leader in Israel.

The candlelit descent to Petra
Sharon and Khalid were excellent . Khalid had an incredible knowledge of history and dates just poured out . He was very amusing and patient and made the trip for us .
Not particularly, although we were told tht a sum of money was to be given to a charity there / The children with the donkeys at Petra benefitted by our payment to them .
Certainly, we were given a very thorough history of the country by Khalid which led to a greater understaning of the neighbouring countries . I would have lijked to see more local craft work . We came home with none!
Travel in small group. Do not expect fantastic hotels. Be prepared for a lot of walking . Enjoy the experience and do some homework beforehand . P.S Avoid the bug brought from Egypt which all four of us caught and has lasted for five weeks - a heavy cough and feeling very tired !

Hello! I'm just wondering if anyone else is arriving into Amman for the weekend before our tour? I would love to catch up when we're there if so. ImTrav won't give our details to others on the same tour prior to the trip which is a shame, so I'm hoping people will contact me through here. I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Hi i am on the Petra to Pryamids tour on 1st Feb is anyone else joining me ?
Whenever I click on the The Road to Damascus link http://www.imaginative-traveller.com/trips/TARD I get sent to the home page, is this trip still running? I'm interested in the Desert Kingdoms trip to Syria & Jordan. I notice none of the Desert Kingdoms trips are listed as guaranteed to depart even though some show limited availability, is there a reason for this? There is a trip leaving on May 16th which has 7 places left which fits in with my plans, this suggests that 11 places have been filled so I would have thought it was guaranteed to depart. Thanks
Hi, just wondered if anyone on here is booked onto the 1-16th march Egypt & Jordan Caravan tour? I'll be going alone and arriving a day earlier on the 28th Feb, anyone else going early?
Hi, I have booked onto the Egypt and Jordan caravan trip for 1-16th march 2009. i have been reading my guidebook on Jordan and wondered if this trip makes a stop at Hammamat Zarqa Ma’in or the Ma'in Hot Springs, as it looks like an amazing place, i noticed this in my book and although it is not in the trip dossier i just wondered if it would be possible to visit along the way, or during any free time?
