Lyndel · Traveled May 2024
Our experience in Jordan was fantastic. Incredible Petra was the star but such an interesting country, historically and culturally. Very quiet tourist wise due to the conflict but we never felt at risk. The Dead Sea, Jerash and the cooking class were other highlights. Plus our excellent leader Mohammad.
