The Lost City of Petra

The Lost City of Petra

Most definitely a holiday to remember. Our guide, Zuhair was excellent and given the constraints placed upon him by Exodus, the trip was on the whole an ideal way to travel to the region with a young family. The main disappointment was the lack of genuinely local experiences. The shops we stopped at were of the service station variety. The restaurants we ate at were of the chips and coke variety. The Bedouins we took tea with were happy to welcome us as part of a steady stream of tourists passing through their tent, where commercial goods were available to buy as you exited. The trip was fun and extremely well organised but smacked of a commercially focussed enterprise and not as an opportunity to experience the real Jordan. Visits to Petra (make sure you include the additional walk to the Monastry. The walk up the steps is as memorable as the experience at the top) and the river Jordan site are a must, along with the Wadi Rum desert experience. Aqaba however did not add anything, other than cost, to our trip. We couldn't shake the very loud western pop music, even on the boat trip. An insufficient number of childrens lifejackets (we only found this out mid journey) and no snorkelling equipment for children, proved without doubt that this was an 18-30 party boat and not a family enterprise. The best experience we had of the real Jordan was our last night in Amman. Jump in a taxi, head down town and just drink in the city. Souks, shisha, hustle & bustle and super shops for spices, sweets etc and tea at Café Jafra is a must. Enjoy the stress free, well organised and efficient guided tour, but make the most of the "unscheduled" hours of the trip to see Jordan, beyond the tour bus.

This is an excellent trip, Petra is astounding, the Wadi Rum is achingly beautiful and peaceful and the array of life in the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea just amazing. The Dead Sea ranks amongst one of the weirdest experiences of my life!

An amazing trip....can I go again please? We went with our three kids, aged 11, 6 and 5. They all had a wonderful time and could name many highlights...from rides on camels, mules and horses (yes, all three!!!), to snorkeling in the Red Sea or climbing rocks in the desert!

Perfect half term trip for families with a great balance of sights to see, breaks for some DIY exploring and fun. Jordan has a beautifully barren landscape hiding some amazing sites that will stay with us always. We loved the Dead Sea, Petra, Wadi Rum camping, Jerash, sitting on the bank of the River Jordan and cruising on the Red Sea.

Amazing to think that floating in the Dead Sea didn't make it in to our top 3 activities for the week. It was trumped by 1. Sleeping under the stars by a camp fire in Wadi Rum, 2. Snorkelling in the life size fish tank that is the Red Sea and 3. Petra by candle light - magical.

My two teenage children and I loved everything about this trip and would highly recommend it to others.  Jordan is a beautiful country with friendly people.  Petra was amazing. The overnight at the camp with our Bedouin hosts in the desert was the highlight.  Our guide and driver were excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday, it was a memorable experience for both adults and children. It was our first Exodus holiday and we immediately ordered a brochure to plan our next trip on our return. Jordan was a fantastic place to visit with a stunning scenery and very friendly people. I would thoroughly recommend this trip!

I had  gone  expecting  Petra  to be  the  highlight  but  was  bowled  over  by all the activities being interesting  and  enjoyable . How  can  one  small country  have  so much to see and  do , one  memorable  experience  after  another.
