This is an epic trip. If you are even half thinking about booking this, just go ahead and do it! You won't regret it! It is the perfect mix of hiking, beautiful scenery, fun personalities and history (Petra!!). The 21km hike from the Little Petra camp down to the Monastery in Petra itself is stunning and was probably the highlight for me. You can also get a hot cup of tea at the main viewing point, which is a bonus (but it's not exactly a vending machine!) Saleh and all the camp staff (Mahmood and Atif) are extremely hard-working and looked after our group extremely well. Saleh is an exemplary tour leader with infectious enthusiasm. He is an excellent ambassador for his country. He is very knowledgable about his subjects, but manages to impart information in manageable chunks, so you never feel overwhelmed. It was, however, all the little extra things that he constantly did, that made the whole trip so special: asking us to listen to the call to prayer at Jerash (the most atmospheric I have ever heard), constantly picking up stray rubbish on hikes, carefully selecting people to tip (eg cleaners at Petra who we had not even noticed), very thoughtfully buying us fruit from street vendors for a truly authentic experience on a long car journey and finally, teaching us half the vocabulary of the entire Arabic language in 7 days!

It's hard to pick a highlight as there were so many. Petra is incredible and the second day there, walking around the back and largely away from all the tourists was amazing. The desert was equally stunning however and the warmth of the Turkish bath after a cold, damp day is hard to beat.

Future travellers need to be aware that it CAN and DOES rain and even snow in Jordan so, as well as a waterproof, waterproof trousers could also be handy. Also, particularly at this time of year, many of us wished we'd brought our own 4 season sleeping bags instead of having to put blankets inside the ones provided. (The blanket/sleeping bag combo was warm though, so it isn't a complaint against Explore)

The whole tour was phenomenal....Wadi Rum and the desert landscape including the stars at night, Petra, Kerak crusader castle, Madaba, the Dead Sea and, of course, Jerash Roman city which was astoundingly intact..... Wow! what a country!! Saleh was brilliant. His knowledge is amazing - from animal tracks and plant info in the desert to archaeological info at Petra, Kerak and Jerash.

The highlights were walking in Wadi Rum, seeing Petra for the first time and floating in the Dead Sea.Saleh went out of his way to ensure everyone had a good holiday. He was very knowledgeable and informative and very enthusiastic about his work and his country.

Walking up to the Monastery at Petra on a quiet path in the morning sunshine, breathless but taking in the magnificent mountain and desert landscape. Very knowledgeable about all matters of flora and fauna in desert and mountain. Good on history and culture. Excellent at bringing the party together, dealing with problems and good fun at the end of the day in camp. A proud Jordanian.
