Family visit in Amman + Jerash, Petra, Dead sea - Aug 6 - Aug 15, 2018

Traveler: Michael B. - Local specialist: Lena Sluga

Driver Azzam was very good and informative and punctual. However on a couple of occasions he suggested pick-up times different to those on our itinerary, most notably at Petra where he did not know about our back-door hike to the Monastery on the morning following our day at Petra, and he suggested a pick-up time from the Dead Sea of 1:00pm rather than the previous booked 5:00pm (this was important as we were meeting the family at the Dead sea). However everything worked out all right in the end and he did show as some amazing views both driving into Petra and on the old road from Petra to the Dead sea.
Our guide Ibrahim for the hike to the Monastery was excellent, as was the hike itself.
Petra is of course amazing and our day and a half there was just about right.
Jerash, Ajloun, Karak and Showback are all impressive and enlightening.
The Dead Sea experience was enjoyable but really only because we could play with our grandchildren in the swimming pool.
A well organised itinerary with sufficient time to see our family in Amman. A trip we will not forget.
Lena deserves thanks for putting together the programme combining touring and spending time with our family.
