- BernadetteWritten on April 15, 20184.5 - ExcellentI loved the way that in a very short time i got an appreciation of the history and society. The immersion in the culture was appropriate.. not overwhelming but The itinerary was varied and well thought out. The guide was very patient with us, but passionate about his culture, and provided unique opportunities... we found a black iris! I loved the picnic overlooking the Rift Valley. Marvellous. I would have liked to rate Issa as excellent for his qualities ...a little revision of English terms would be helpful to make explanations clearer.Show detailed ratings

- BKBintouWritten on July 18, 20174.0 - GoodJordan is an amazing country with outstanding places and people are welcoming. The highlight of the trip was the visit to Petra, the city of Petra is stunning!!! The guide was great, very passionate. Food was delicious, plates are very big so we ate a lot but we walked a lot as well so it offset. Hotels were average. You will need to a couple of days to recover but it is definitely worth it. Highly recommended... One of my best trips so far.Show detailed ratings
- AnonymousWritten on November 14, 20135.0 - ExcellentVisiting Jordan was a truly memorable experience with sights, sounds and experiences I will never forget. The variety of what we did and saw, as well as, the show-stopping, awe-inspiring sights of Petra and the desert in daylight and under a star-filled sky will stay with me forever. A packed week which is a must for people looking for culture, history, variety, natural beauty, great food and lovely people! Jordan has it all! What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?There were many fantastic moments but without doubt, the most amazing was seeing the Treasury buliding at Petra for the first time having walked along the 1 kilometre beautiful canyon before emerging right infront of the Treasury.Â The whole of Petra and the two days spend there were incredible.Â Apart from Jerash, the desert and the dead sea experience, the other memorable experience was an afternoon spent on a sailing boot, swimming and snorkelling amongst thousands of fish and brightly coloured corals - and in sea so warm it was like being in a bath.Â Beautiful!What did you think of your group leader?Sammi, our Group leader was fantastic.Â He helped make the trip what it was.Â He has an incredible knowledge and took time to explain so many aspects of Joran culture and way of life. He also guided us around all the sights and gave us a the background to everything we saw.Â Above all though, he has a wicked sense of humour and took great pleasure in having fun with the guests. He was fun, very personable and engaged very well with all of the Group.Â I would say that he is the perfect guide and the best one I have ever travelled with.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Take sturdy shoes for Petra - not necessary to take full walking boots.Â Take something warm for the evenings as it can get a little chilly at times. Don't expect to drink alcohol wherever you go - it is a dry country and only the biggest hotels sell alcohol. Many of our meals were with soft drinks which was a surprise for those not expecting it. If you have time and can do it - add a few days on at the end of the trip to chill out in Aqaba - there's not a great deal there but to relax in the sun and by the Red Sea is great and there are a few very good hotels to choose from.Is there anything else you would like to add?Jordan is a great place - everyone must go during their lifetime.Â Petra is without doubt one of the highlights of my life!Â Thanks Exodus for a fantastic trip!
- AnonymousWritten on November 11, 20135.0 - ExcellentJordan is a wonderful country. The trip packs all the main sights in yet still gives time to enjoy them. The trip emcompasses something for everyone. Beautiful sunny weather and blue skies and not too crowded either.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?I have always wanted to see Petra and it was just amazing. First sight was on the nightime event outside the Treasury which although short is a magical experience and well worth a first introduction. The next day was a full day sightseeing. Never realised it was such a massive site. The walk to the Treasury was fantastic and later in the day the walk to the monastery was equally as good. Breathtaking. My feet certainly ached at the end of the day. The second full day there involved the walk to the High Place and yet more time to soak up the atmosphere.What did you think of your group leader?The tour leader was excellent. Very well informed and full of information about Jordan and the various places visited. Also just the right amount of information as well.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Just go and enjoy. Make sure you have good comfortable walking shoes for the two days in Petra and something to wear on your feet for the Dead Sea "float". Currency exchange is readily available but make sure you get small notes. They tend to like giving out 50 and 20 Dinar denominations which is equivalnet to Â£ 50 and Â£ 20. Country feels perfectly safe. Go now while tourist numbers are low. On our second day in Petra the place felt quite deserted. Even obtained pictures of the Treasury with no one else around. Probably don't go in summer as I would imagine it would be unbearable walking around Petra for a couple of days.Is there anything else you would like to add?Go now and enjoy. Great for a quick week away. Jerash roman ruins are spectacular and large. Although not as well preserved as some, it is still a magnificent place to visit. Brush up on your Moses life story as well. My knowledge of the Old Testament was slightly lacking and trying to recall things from childhood.
- AnonymousWritten on November 6, 20135.0 - ExcellentFantastic trip with a great group and tour leader. Warm weather and amazing sites. Jordan is an amazing country, people were warm and friendly - its hard to believe how much we saw and did. Certainly missing the sun and bright blue skies ....................What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Wandering around Jerash with the sound of Scottish bagpipes wafting with the breeze. The sheer scale of the amphitheatres, colonnaded streets and palacesÂ is truly breathtaking. That first glimpse of the Treasury at Petra through the Siq walk - very Indiana Jones! Sitting outside a Bedouin Cave looking across the Petra desert complete with shooting star -Â following a wonderful dinner (not to be missed). Snorkeling in the Rea Sea surrounded by lots of fish. Bobbing around in the Dead Sea. Night in Wadi Rum with that desert full moon.What did you think of your group leader?Khaled was a fantastic tour leader - making us all feel welcome and informed about Jordan in general as well as the places we were visiting. He always had good tips on evening meals and optional walks to take to get the 'worlds best view' in Petra and Wadi Rum. Highly recommend any trip to Jordan with Khaled - you are sure to have the best experiences possible.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?When getting local currency try to get smaller denomination notes (20 dinars and below) as you will find it much easier to pay for meals etc as not all places have change for larger notes. Make sure you have plenty of wet wipes and good walking shoes especially around Petra (as rocks can be slippery). I travelled at the start of October and found during the day temperatures were warm but pleasant (although a sunhat is good idea) at night it can get chilly so a jacket/fleece will be good idea.Is there anything else you would like to add?I was not sure what to expect with Jordan but found people open and friendly - always welcoming to tourists and interested to know where you were from - 'Welcome to Jordan!' was often said. So many great experiences - too numerous to mention but Petra is much more than just the Treasury and please do opt for the evening meal in the Bedouin Cave (fantastic). Floating in the Dead Sea is an experience that words fail to describe -Â you really need to try it. In Aqaba (red sea) we went on the boat trip (complete with lunch) to snorkel on coral reefs - everyone found this a relaxing afternoon compared to the busy local beaches. Jordan is not to be missed! Fascinating historical sites and vast landscapes with big blue skies. Just go - you won't be disappointed :)
- AnonymousWritten on November 1, 20135.0 - ExcellentFrom Amman to the dead sea to the wonderous place that is Petra. Then onto Wadi Rum and the desert. A spectacular fun packed way to spend a week !What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Petra, nothing can prepare you for how massive and stunningly beautiful Petra is.Â Awe inspiring place. One day is spent exploring from the bottom, the next from exploring the hills and caves above the main site. My husband and I wandered down from the Safrifice area all the way down to the main site.Â WE explored the caves and temples and didnt see another soul.Â One of the best days of my life - if I am honest !What did you think of your group leader?He was very good.Â Enthusiastic and full of knowledge. He made the trip fun.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Book this trip !!! Its fantastic !!Is there anything else you would like to add?The sun set over Wadi Rum is not to be missed and the silence and the stars..................
- AnonymousWritten on October 23, 20135.0 - ExcellentWonderful trip, brilliant guide, great bunch of travelling companions and Jordan is just amazing. So many wonderful and unique things to do and experience. Exceeded my expectations by a long, long way.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Sleeping out under the stars in Wadi Rum and listening to the snoring chorus! Four sleepers beautifully in harmony and synchronised to perfection - funny and brilliant! Actually there were too many highlights to single individual ones out. This whole trip just reveals one amazing thing after another.What did you think of your group leader?Wael is a wonderful ambassador for his country. His love and enthusiasm for everything Jordanian is infectious and it was a privilege to share this with both him and the group. Nothing was a problem and any suggestions he made were further enhancements to an already great itinerary.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Jordan is amazing! The people, the sights, the history, the culture. This is an amazing trip which allows you to see much that Jordan has to offer and is sure to leave you wanting more.Is there anything else you would like to add?Do yourself the biggest favour and just do it! Visit Jordan - you will not be disappointed!
- AnonymousWritten on September 23, 20135.0 - ExcellentA completely (if tiring) excellent trip. I can't beleive the amount we saw and did in one week. What did you think of your group leader?Very knowledgeable and great insight to Jordan, not just the places but the culture too. Organised some great extras too such as the snorkelling boat trip and cave dinnerDo you have any advice for potential travellers?If you are at all dubious about Jordan - don't be. There are not a lot of tourists at the moment which is great for us as have such a greater experience in Petra and other places but not so good for Jordan itself. Jordan needs you and you won't regret it.Â
- AnonymousWritten on September 17, 20135.0 - ExcellentHaving just downloaded my photos onto my computer I know realise how lucky I was to go on this trip . Amazing country and incredible historic sites and lots of fun . Its worth it just for Jerash and Petra alone , let alone the experience of sleeping under the stars in Wadi Rum and the quiet of the desert . Food's pretty great too !!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?This is hard , there's so many ! I think that my fav moment was sitting in the desert with one of my new friends at night after we had watched the sunset as a group . We let the others return to camp and just sat , suddenly we heard the rocks making noise . We got closer and it got even weirder . Until we realised that the walls of rock around our camp were amplifying and sending the sound out like a speaker and the it was bouncing back at us . Wadi Rum makes you understand why the locals believe in Djinn (spirits) that live in the desert . Amtospheric doesn't even come close , awesome !!!What did you think of your group leader?He was a very nice guy with a big heart and a passion for his country and his religion . He tried to bring us along for the ride and widen our perspectives . For me that is what travel is all about . I was genuinely sad to say goodbye . I think he wanted us to be happy and tried hard to make that happen but he also tried to give us little words of wisdom that might stay with us .Â Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Get fit !!! This sounds like an easy ride but trust me there's lots of climbing and walking for up to 8 hours a day at some points . The first 4 days are full on . Bring walking boots and buy a head scarf in Jordan , very good for keeping the sun off you . The company info and all guide books say you need to cover up more than you do on a cultural level . The Jordanian people seem to appreciate and like westerners , you are kind of given a pass on most stuff .Â EAT !!!!! Mansaf and Makluba .............delicious !!! Its diet time for me people ! Â Is there anything else you would like to add?Before I make my comment I'd like to point out that I understand that there is a monster itinery here and its hard to see all the incredible things without it being a bit overwhelming . However at times I think we all felt it was a bit of a route march and not enough time to sit and aprreciate and explore on our own . Petra especially was a bit too much for myself and my partner . So much so that we opted out of the Petra by night experience as we just couldn't face any more walking up the Siq. Which was a shame . There also seemed to be an amount of pressure to go to the leaders favorite tourist restaurant rather than go out and experience those funny moments when you pick the wrong thing like dromedary pretzels by mistake . Not that the food wasn't good .So maybe another day in there somewhere would help and a looser grip on the experience would help it to feel less forced . Â
