The 3 day trip to Jordan included a city tour to Jerash and Amman, visit to Petra and jeep safari in Wadi Rum. We stayed in Bedouin camps which gave us an authentic experience to the Bedouin lifestyle and a special mention to the tea that they served. Although, it was too cold (3 degree celsius) we were provided with 4 blankets which was sufficient to protect us from the cold. We were a group of 40 people but everything was on time. I am a vegetarian, and had no difficulty finding vegetarian dishes and the buffet menu had more vegetarian dishes than non-vegetarian. Our guide Mahdi provided us details to the social and cultural aspects of Jordan, he was even open to political and economical questions. As far as the border crossing is concerned it should not be a problem unless you are carrying your passport and money for the entrance and exit to Jordan. The time provided at each stop was sufficient and we were not hurried from anywhere.
Abdulla the tour guide, did a great job leading us on our 3 day adventure to Petra. He was attentive, informative and funny. Day 1 and 3 are very long days of travel and border crossings. There could be a little more information about what to expect on the other side, once you cross the border. We waited for 45 minutes before anyone showed up to continue the trip with little information about how long we would wait. Other than that, everything was great!
Awesome trip.. Ali is a very good guide and explains everything in detail.. All the border crossing formalities were done at ease with not much waiting
Mahdi was such a great guide. We had a great experience— it was a little colder than we expected but well worth the trip!
