Petra & Wadi Rum Trek

Great place, wrong time of year

5
Petra is fantastic. A must see and awe inspiring sight. Wadi Rum at the end of May was too hot. It was in the high 30s and low 40s which meant we had to spend hours resting in the shade and much of the walking felt like a route march at times - something to be endured and survived rather than enjoyed. People were exhausted. No other tour company was trekking at the end of May. So go, but go earlier in the year.

Petra and Wadi Rum Trek

A fantastic experience! I felt that we were able to fully appreciate the desert scenery that Wadi Rum had to offer. The wild camping was in excellent locations including on top of sand dunes and between sandstone mountains.

trip of a lifetime

5
Without this trip, my wife and I would not have wandered for 4 days in a desert, climbed rock bridges or had a stress free time of worrying about a campsite, food and water. Having a support vehicle for sleeping bags, tent, food and water aren't cheating when it comes to desert travel - camels would have been used for the desert trekkers even before Biblical times.

Great views and great fun

5
A great well thought through trip with great adventure and amazing views. The desert trek is outstanding, the challenge of walking on sand in hot temperatures coupled with the fantastic camp sites was a real highlight. The scrambling on day 2 of the trek is great fun with the high land bridge well worth the climb, it is safe but isn't for the feint hearted. Petra is also inspiring with the first view of the treasure house a great awe inspiring moment.

Petra & Wadi Rum trek Nov 2014

A well balanced visit to Jordan with some interesting and impressive sights. The Wadi Rum was more varied than I expected although this was mostly on the second and third days. I found we had a good hour or two at the end of the day's walk where we still had good light so if you aren't tired a short wander of your own is well worth it to feel like you've gotten the most from your time there.

When your guide says jump you ask how high

Trekked in Wadi Rum in October. What an amazing and special place to be. The weather was unseasonably hot most days over 35 degrees. Nights were not much cooler, which meant we couldn’t sleep under the stars (reptiles and scorpions were active). The desert is an extremely quite and peaceful place to be. If you are thinking about this trip, (don’t think), just do it you won’t be disappointed.

Loved this Trek

5
We went in March and had the most fabulous weather which added to the joy of this trip. The Wadi Rum is just magical. We found the walks quite leisurely and spent the days gawping at the scenery and chatting to others in the group. The guided trip to the arch of Burdah was more challenging but we had a lot of help and reassurance from our guide, policeman and local staff and there was no pressure to do more than you wanted. The food was good and the tents were basic but comfortable enough. The last day of the trek started with an optional camel ride followed by a short trek then the bus to Petra for a wash and then Petra by night. Petra was a great contrast to the trek and a lovely way to end the week.

Really enjoyed this trip and trek. Wadi Rum is absolutely breathtaking and Petra is something quite spectacular. There are also lots of other places to visit in Jordan if you have free time. The people are friendly also and I loved the food. The trek through Wadi Rum was great, it really is a beautiful place. The scenery is amazing. The desert is tranquil and inspiring. I think Exodus have graded this trek well and put it as medium difficulty. Anyone with some trekking experience will be able to do this fairly easily, you just have to be weary of the heat. Also walking in sand for a long time will make the muscles tire out quicker. The hotel accommodation is excellent and the tents provided were also decent. Our group were really nice also. Highly recommended.

Exceeded expectations

5
This trip exceeded all my expectations. I wasn't even particularly bothered about seeing Petra, which for many is the highlight of the trip, but I was very glad I did! A relatively easy-going trek but walking on soft sand is harder than it looks, nevertheless. The wild camping was fabulous, and there are plenty of interesting things to see and do to keep you from getting bored, despite a lot of sand!
