It's an excellent itinerary and the tour exceeded our expectations. Highlights of the tour were Dead Sea, Petra and camping in the desert. The hotels are a bit basic but what you get to see of Jordan is the hero of this holiday. There is a lot of trekking/walking on this tour which suited our family. All the children on the tour were of a similar age which made the group quite socially cohesive. We were wowed by what we saw and experienced and would heartily recommend this tour. We came home educated and fascinated about the Middle East. Our tour guide Awad was an excellent guide and great company; he educated and entertained us about all things Jordanian.

The trip was amazing!
The first part of the tour, visiting Jerash was fantastic. Then the Dead Sea was brilliant - we had the place to ourselves! But it got better. Petra - there are no words to describe it. Beautiful, amazing, awe-inspiring! The colours, the scale of the site, just unbelievable. It was a lot larger than I was expecting and to climb up to some of the best places and views you definitely need to have a decent level of fitness, especially if you go during the hot summer months. Take plenty of water (although you can buy drinks everywhere) and a hat! Temperatures soared from the high 30's into the 40's when we were there at the end of July/start of August.
The night in the desert camp we all agreed was the best night of the trip. Watching the colours of the rock change as the sun went down was beautiful and sleeping out under the stars was an experience I'll never forget. I would have liked another night there!
The last part of the trip, in Aqaba was ok, but it all felt a bit rushed. The snorkelling wasn't great, the equipment could have been better, but it was nice to swim in the sea!
Our guide, Awad was very special. His knowledge, kindness, attention to detail and genuine love for his country was clear. He was always making sure everyone was ok, and had a real sense of humour too. He made the trip even better.
The only thing I wasn't particularly happy about was the hotel in Amman was a strict Muslim hotel, so the pool was segregated to men only or women only on different days. That was very disappointing for me as a single parent travelling with my 2 sons, that we couldn't go for a swim together.

A great way to experience a wonderful variety of activities. Jordan felt very safe and the Jordians were very friendly.

Petra is as stunning as it appears in all the photos and there is so much more to explore than just the 'Treasury'. The kids loved the variety of transport on offer in Petra, camels, donkeys, and horses.

Camel riding and camping in the desert (in the rain!) was a definite highlight and not something you get to do every day.

Learning about the Bedouin way of life and eating with the locals in a cave and in the desert was a great experience and the food was delicious.

Finally, Aqaba at the end gave us a lovely chance to chill and relax before heading home.

The highlight really is Petra - so incredible, beautiful, and much more to see and explore than we realised. We also loved the Dead Sea experience and the camel ride.

Food was excellent throughout and even though we went in August, the pace ensured we had lots of shady breaks and rests during the walking, so the heat was tolerable - Akaba was much hotter and windier than we expected however.

Getting insights from our guide on local culture and bedouin way of life was also very interesting - his pride and love of his country is clear! Local people were always very friendly ,helpful, and welcoming and we felt completely safe at all times.

It's a trip rich on history. It really makes sense to what you are seeing.
The Jordanians are very helpful and keen to show off their country.
We felt very looked after.
