Spend a whole day uncovering the majesty and mystery of the world wonder of Petra. The first glimpse of the Treasury from the narrow path of the Siq is unforgettable

Hop in a jeep and experience the extraordinary desert scenery of Wadi Rum, a rugged moonscape of huge sandstone mountains
Meet Bedouin locals, learn about their ways, and sleep under the stars in a desert camp in the far-out destination of Wadi Rum
There is quite a bit of walking involved in visiting Jordan's historic sites, especially in Petra and Wadi Rum, so a reasonable level of fitness is required. Most of the time there is no shade so remember to bring a hat, sun protection, and sturdy, comfortable walking shoes.
Winters can get quite cool, so if you're visiting at this time, don't forget to pack some warmer layers too.
The desert camp in Wadi Rum is basic but incredibly memorable. There are tents and shared western bathroom facilities. Please be aware that while the desert may be very hot during the day, it will still be cool at night and warm clothes and a sleeping bag is highly recommended when travelling outside of the summer months.
This itinerary is valid for departures from 01 January 2017 to 31 December 2017. View the itinerary for departures between 01 January 2018 - 31 December 2018

Improvements Mic on bus needed as hard to hear and dangerous for guide to stand up and shout More water and drinks at camp in the desert during August - very hot. Sheik did go and get more water. Shiek on his mobile during night whilst looking at stars - disruptive (this was most disappointing of all) phone making text sounds and bleeps as well as light from phone. Paid for authentic remote experience of desert camp under stars .. not mobile phone noises Turkish bath not good in Petra. One person to complete Turkish massage for four people and not a real Turkish bath experience - more like an expensive way to be cleaned . Perhaps some arabic music to create atmosphere during the evening for dinner. Some Judgmental people on trip - more rules around how to treat people and zero tolerance to bullying Too hot at Dead Sea go earlier in August and cut out Kerak castle in height of summer Help Save the donkeys at Petra Highlights Petra is outstanding Petra by night is magical Camel ride in Petra very fun indeed Guide information great, kind, reflects ethos of the company to promote sustainable travel and he is comical Hotel rooms cleaned regularly Never felt like I needed a thing (other than more cold water desert) Jordan Fantastic historical sites Amazing food Friendly welcoming people Safe Lovely dry hot weather Thank you for a great trip
