The 3 day trip to Jordan included a city tour to Jerash and Amman, visit to Petra and jeep safari in Wadi Rum. We stayed in Bedouin camps which gave us an authentic experience to the Bedouin lifestyle and a special mention to the tea that they served. Although, it was too cold (3 degree celsius) we were provided with 4 blankets which was sufficient to protect us from the cold. We were a group of 40 people but everything was on time. I am a vegetarian, and had no difficulty finding vegetarian dishes and the buffet menu had more vegetarian dishes than non-vegetarian. Our guide Mahdi provided us details to the social and cultural aspects of Jordan, he was even open to political and economical questions. As far as the border crossing is concerned it should not be a problem unless you are carrying your passport and money for the entrance and exit to Jordan. The time provided at each stop was sufficient and we were not hurried from anywhere.
Our guide, Levi, took us to the normal places as well as unique places including the Ilana Goor Museum in Old Jaffa. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant and we would definitely recommend him to other travelers.
We had 5 days in Israel and we used them to the fullest. We saw so much but still only a taste of what Israel has to offer. Definitely going back.
Mahdi was such a great guide. We had a great experience— it was a little colder than we expected but well worth the trip!
I was picked up sharp on time, all was organised beautifully and out driver / tour guide was very kind and informative.
