Hotels were a mix of nice and unsatisfactory: Retaj in Amman was very nice but the first night so excruciatingly hot in the room I barely slept at all. I know several of us complained to the hotel desk. I finally slept a couple hours after I moved the bed across the room in f..."

    Unfortunately, the key disappointment for the group was the quality of guide. His English was difficult to follow and he lacked enthusiasm. We also lacked historical context and cultural anecdotes throughout.

    Highlights of Jordan – August 2018 The adventure was everything my wife & I had expected, I am fairly well travelled my wife is not and wanted to experience life on the wild side and not a sun lounger, both of us were well served by G Adventures and has left us desperate to go elsewhere on other G Adventure experiences. On a practical note, the other reviews on line accurately represent the trip as a whole and initially sold the idea to us, there were some as has to be expected minor itinerary hic ups during the trip however they were all surmountable and well managed by the trip CEO who incidentally was extremely professional throughout and an experienced tour guide. I would recommend though that the extra time of the extended 4x4 trip in the Wadi Rum desert although fun is in fact actually well covered in regard to ground covered within the normal excursion time and anyone who has spent any time in the desert whether middle east or own back yard of Arizona or such like won’t get a lot from the extended tour, there were also a few structural safety and maintenance concerns about the vehicles being used. The night out in a Bedouin camp was a super location but a bit manufactured and only really a night out under the stars and a bussed in buffet meal not a genuine Bedouin camp and inhabitant experience but waking up to a wilderness desert sunrise was something special and a view to remember. The snorkelling excursion in Aqaba was fine for someone with past snorkelling experience but the undersea rip currents a little strong for my wife with no experience or water confidence and there was no offered instruction to beginners which spoilt her day a bit. Those points aside the whole trip was a great mix between adventurous activity and cultural and historic learning the itinerary being well organised and administered, the other ten members of our group were made up of varied ages and nationalities literally worldwide, all were courteous polite and fun to be with. Both myself and my wife excitedly now look forward intrepidly to our next G Adventure, who knows where.

    This tour was amazing! We went to Jordan not knowing what to expect, nor did we know much about the country but it blew out all of our expectations. The itenary was incredible but what made the tour even more enjoyable was our guide Khadir. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone was happy and he is absolutely hilarious. He showed us the beautiful history of Jordan but with a sense of humour. I highly recommend this tour but recommend Khadir as your guide even more

    Thanks for providing your review. We have some fantastic CEO's in Jordan and I'm glad Khadir did not disappoint!

    I went on the Highlights of Jordan adventure from 3 May to 11 May and had one of the greatest experiences of my life. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to give us a lot of historical information and was very open to any of our questions. The attractions did not disappoint. If you've always wanted to see Petra, Wadi Rum, the Red Sea, or just experience a whole new culture then you owe it to yourself to take this tour.

    Tour was run very efficiently; we packed a lot into the days without a significant amount of down time, and I liked that. Hotels were a mix of nice and unsatisfactory: Retaj in Amman was very nice but the first night so excruciatingly hot in the room I barely slept at all. I know several of us complained to the hotel desk. I finally slept a couple hours after I moved the bed across the room in front of the window; the road noise through the open window was really loud. Seven Wonders at Petra was a complete dump. The room reeked so badly of smoke I had to change rooms; the 2nd room looked like the carpet had not been vacuumed in a year, with obvious visible debris all over it; bathroom was not maintained with lots of mold and grunge; having a mini-fridge was nice except when you removed the keycard it turned off, ergo ruined perishables. Our bus was pretty full, so quite uncomfortable with nowhere but the dusty floor to place your backpack; overhead shelf was too slim to fit anything substantial up there. Our driver was a nice and pleasant guy who cared for the bus well and it was pretty clean. There seemed to be a lot of distortion in the bus' microphone (if was so much easier to understand our guide without it). Our guide Monty was excellent, friendly, easy going and caring. If we had any problems at all he was right on it for us. We were well taken care of. Overall GAP and our guide did a great job on this tour and it was most enjoyable. Any problems I encountered were related to difficulty dealing with the local Jordanians, who will take you for a ride if you aren't vigilant - a different culture.

    I recently went on a tour to Jordan through G Adventures. I was always sceptical about travelling to the middle east but I felt safe throughout my trip. The tour was well put together and interesting. I look forward to travelling with them again.

    A great trip from many perspectives. Wonderful, safe country, an urbane and quietly sophisticated leader, Jihad, warm and welcoming people, healthy variety in activities, good transportation and accommodations, great travel companions, delicious food and, if you are considering this trip for Petra, you will not be disappointed
