Awesome trip in Jordan, getting to know the country throughout a full week's travel. Samir was quick and efficient in helping us put together a plan in short notice for our trip and everything ran smoothly once we were there.
Special mention for our driver, Khaled, who was with us through the week and helped us with whatever little problem we may have encountered whilst also providing us with useful hints and tips along each stop we made. Thanks to both for the great service and making sure... read more

Hotel Reviews
Shams al weibdeh hotel apartment
Amman

Good hotel in central Amman, great location as a base for discovering the city. 5-10min walk from Paris Square where there is a selection of restaurants and tea houses, whilst its also closely located to Rainbow Street. The hotel itself met our requirements, whilst staff were friendly and welcoming.

Authenticity & Character
Location
Close to restaurants whilst also within walking distance of Amman's main sights (Citadel & Roman Theatre).
Staff
Very helpful staff, we had little interaction with them but always very pleasant and offering to help where they could.
Cleanliness & Comfort
Petra Palace
Wadi Musa, Petra

Classic hotel that is 2min walk from the entrance to the sight of Petra and the Museum. Buffet style breakfast and dinner were good though the rooms are big but fairly basic.

Authenticity & Character
Location
Location was great, 2min away from the entrance to Petra.
Staff
Were generally helpful and polite but upon arrival we realised we had been given a room with 2 single beds rather than a double bed as booked. Upon ringing reception from the room we didn't receive much help other than being told that we could just sleep in one bed, which was't the solution we were looking for
Cleanliness & Comfort
Old style hotel, with just one accessible plug in the room that was being used by a lamp. A struggle to charge 2 phones let alone anyone else who may have watches/cameras etc.
Enjoy Desert camp
Wadi rum

Well run camp site with friendly staff and good amenities given its desert setting. Local zarb dinner was great in the evening and the staff were very friendly and helpful when it came to the activities we had planned during our stay.

Authenticity & Character
Location
Really nice viewpoint that has been incorporated into the campsite, great for sitting after breakfast or dinner and gazing out into the desert.
Staff
Cleanliness & Comfort
Each tent came with an incorporated bathroom which was a nice luxury to have.

Wadi Rum (2-3 Hrs Jeep ride)
Jordan

Great drive through the desert and completely different to anything we have ever seen. Although there aren't really any historic sites etc we would have appreciated a bit more information along the way or a bit more interaction with the driver about the local way of life or regarding important areas of the desert.

Rum Valley Sunrise Hike
Wadi Rum

This was actually a camel ride instead of a hike. We really enjoyed the time on the camels but felt it was a bit short as half way through we stopped to sit and light a fire and drink tea whilst the sun rose. We would have preferred to see the sunrise whilst on the camels and actually covering a greater distance on the camels.

Camels were safe and well behaved.
