This was my first Exodus tour and I can hardly wait for more. The small groups allow plenty of time to get to know fellow travelers and the guide and also allows for flexibility - some places we were ready to leave earlier than scheduled and others we needed a bit more time - neither was a problem. We watched many cruise tour buses stop for a short while and shook our heads wondering how anyone could possibly explore Petra in less than the two days we had. The night we spent in Wadi Rum was amazing. The hospitality and food were excellent, the beds warm and comfortable. Although the weather in February was a little cooler than I would have liked for the beach, it's hard to imagine making a trip to Jordan without a float in the Dead Sea or the spectacular snorkeling in the Red Sea. Most important of all was our guide, Khaleb. He brought Jordan to life from the moment he told us "when you are in Jordan, you are a Jordanian - everyone is welcome."
