"I was so-o-o impressed by the trip to Petra. Everything was so exiting and interesting. Special compliments to the tour guide Nazir. So knowledgeable and with great sense of humor. I only wish I had more time to see more of Petra. The day in Bedouin camp and tour around Wadi Rum was also very interesting. The overnight stay at camp was very relaxing and comfortable. Not too many guests but the camp has a potential to accommodate much more people." -Kristina, Australia
