- A tour that exceeded expectations in every aspect - from sights and experiences to the people, food and culture we were able to experience - I can't find the words to describe how amazing this trip was!
Highlights for me included my first glimpse of the Treasury at Petra, hiking up to the Monastery, and the High Place of Sacrifice - culturally, the highlight was a home-cooked dinner in a family's home in Petra. Watching the full moon emerge over the desert in Wadi Rum was truly magical...
Snorkelling in the Red Sea and floating in the Dead Sea were also unexpected highlights... Jordan is truly an amazing destination and I have no doubt I will return.
Tips - if going in winter, prepare for cold nights and cool days - layers are essential with a good wind-breaker. Try going on a diet for a few weeks beforehand as the food is sooo good you're bound to gain a couple of kilograms!
