What Was The Most Memorable Or Exciting Part Of Your Holiday?

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…….

What Did You Think Of Your Tour Leader?

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.

What Advice Would You Give To Other Travellers?

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.

What Was The Most Memorable Or Exciting Part Of Your Holiday?

Sleeping under the stars in the desert at Wadi Rum and sunset at the ruins in Palmyra

What Did You Think Of Your Tour Leader?

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.

Do You Feel Your Holiday Benefited Local People?

More so in Syria where tourism was less obvious than in Jordan.

Do You Feel That You Got Under The Skin Of A Country?

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.

What Advice Would You Give To Other Travellers?

Research the appropriate clothing to wear and don’t let little mishaps bother you!

What Was The Most Memorable Or Exciting Part Of Your Holiday?

The candlelit descent to Petra

What Did You Think Of Your Tour Leader?

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 .

Do You Feel Your Holiday Benefited Local People?

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 .

Do You Feel That You Got Under The Skin Of A Country?

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!

What Advice Would You Give To Other Travellers?

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 !
