“One word: AMAZING! I REALLY loved it. The buses were tidy and comfortable, the drivers were prudent and the guides SO NICE and knowledgeable. The tour itself so great, informative, and sights that make people go in « awe »when they see the pictures. The overnight in Wadi Rum is a must!!! I would like to thank out Petra guide and also the gentleman who helped us through the process of going into the Jordanian customs. They were really helpful.” – Caroline, Canada

Our tour departs as early as possible to ensure timely arrival to the border crossing. By arriving first this means a quick crossing procedure and more time spent in Petra.
From November to March the standard overnight accommodation for the first night is a 3-star hotel in Aqaba and dinner will be at the hotel. Hotel upgrades are available upon arrival in Aqaba. For travelers who still wish to stay in the Bedouin camp, please notify our reservation team via email.
