- Excellent itinerary, covering the major sites in Jordanian history and culture. The programme was very full and busy but this was necessary to do justice to the variety of places of interest in the country. Our guide, Mo, was knowledgeable and informative. He engaged well with the group and worked very hard to ensure that we had the best possible experience. Highlights were Petra, Madaba, Wadi Rum and the desert forts and castles. Amman itself was hectic and staying in a hotel on the edge of the city centre meant we had to travel by bus and taxi to get around. We would have welcomed more chances to find our way about and explore the city on foot. Staying in a more central hotel might have made a difference. The hotel reception staff in Amman were not very friendly. An overnight stay in Madaba would have helped us appreciate that interesting city. We didn't enjoy Akaba though the hotel staff were excellent.
