- I loved this trip. I'd never before done a group holiday, still less one in which I would be sharing a tent with 12 strangers, and wasn't sure how it would be. But it was a great experience. Everything about it was wonderful, from the hiking in the Wadi Rum desert and finding Koranic inscriptions on the cliffside, through camping out at night and eating food cooked in a pit, to all the extraordinary ancient sights - above all Petra, of course, but also the mosaics at Mount Nesbo, the crusader fort, and the Roman city of Jerash. It was very well organised, and we had an excellent tour leader in Saleh, who brought a high level of understanding and intelligence to everything we were looking at. There was so much variety that it felt like two weeks, not one. It's also really good value for what you're getting.
