Jordan in 7 Days - Amman, Jerash, Mt Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba and the Dead Sea
Jul 30 - Aug 4, 2018
Everything was great, the fact that I was able to message back and forth in a "conversation" style on KimKim was very easy going and helped as I was able to request changes as they happened up to the trip.
One of the best things about my trip to Jordan when booking through Kimkim was my driver, Yahya. I wasn't sure about doing an individual trip to another country. But my driver was great company, he was a good converser.
He talked me through what to expect, how to get the most out of my trip, also made recommendations to see things, such as on our way to Dana Village, he knew of a great spot to view the sunset so we were able to catch that. He had great recommendations of places to eat. All in all, he made the trip a much better than what it would have been otherwise
He even brought a Hotspot so I can stay connected on the trip.
I started from Amman to the North, Jerash and Ajloun. These places held ancient and medieval sites of Romans, a complete city, and a Muslim castle.
The next day was Madaba, Karak and Dana village. I really enjoyed Dana village and seeing the 500 year old village. The highlight of the visit was going on a hike with the local bedouin man that has lived in those mountains for more than 60 years.
After that was Aqaba and Dead Sea. Aqaba is a nice city, it was nice to see another bustling city since I left Amman. I enjoyed my stay there next to the sea. The Dead Sea resort I was at for some reason didn't have access to the beach open. Only to their pools, which was a let down.
After that, being back in Amman before my flight back was great. I was able to get some good falafel and shawerma one last time.
