A Week in Jordan

Week in Jordan.

The perfect introduction to this fascinating and beautiful county. Only put very good due to the hotel choice in Amman, it was not the one we were expecting and not the quality of the one we had originally been booked into. This was down to the local company not exodus.

A Week in Jordan

A Week in Jordan,our 1st trip with Exodus

3
I have rated our "Week in Jordan" as Good,rather than Very Good,on the standard of the Hotels we stayed in throughout the trip. We enjoyed the company of our group of 20,and the craik was always good.We had a good guide and an excellent bus driver,not to mention our ever smiling Tourist Policeman. In the space of the week we covered all the main tourist sites and I was delighted to find the Jordanian street sellers accepted my "no thank you" with a"Welcome to Jordan" rather than following me around. The Exodus organisation,from time of booking was excellent,and many of our fellow travellers were Exodus regulars.

Thoroughly great trip!! This was my first Exodus trip and I decided to share a room. I did not regret this once, as my room mate was lovely and this added to the experience and meant there was no quiet time in my room waiting for dinner. There were 20 of us, which was initially worrying, but it all worked out very well, as we all got on brilliantly. There were 10 solos and 5 couples (including friends that had come together).

A busy and hugely varied week in Jordan. Every day we did something and saw something new - I loved the variety of the holiday and the different experiences you can have in such a short time in relatively small country

A Week in Jordan

"Welcome in Jordan"

Was the constant greeting and we were certainly made to feel so (and very safe) "Hello. Look at that! " from our enthusiastic, knowledgeable and extremely accomodating local guide Petra was on most of our minds (made even more special by the fantastic 'reveal' by our guide - so very thoughtful) However our trip included so many other fantastic facets - Roman city of Jerash and peace and vastness of Wadi Rum

There is nothing I can say about Jordan that others who have travelled to this country have not said before. We were a large group, 20 in all, age ranging from 20`s to 60`s but unusually with a large group we all got on so well together. We started our trip with a visit to Jerash, nothing could have prepared us for the shear volume that was there with even more yet to be uncovered, absolutely fantastic to stand there in the footprints of these ancient people who created these wonders. Onto the Dead sea, I thought it was going to warmer than it was but those of us who went in had a quick float around, a pity we could not see the sites in Israel over the other side of the sea as it was quite misty. Petra was next for us, the Treasury was revealed to by a trick the guide (Zuhair) played on us and what a site, although this is really only a fraction of what is there.We spent 2 days walking around, up and over in awe at the scale and colours, every corner revealing another site or view to take your breath away. Ah camping in the desert hold that thought, how romantic, after a 4x4 ride in the desert we climbed aboard our camels for a ride again into the desert. on our return dinner was prepared but due to a strong wind we ate inside a really smokey large tent. Those of us who brought along a sleeping bag did ok but the the temperature dropped and it was cold, yes it really was. To complete our trip we moved onto Aqaba which was different again, much like many sea ports in the middle east. I found this trip so enlightening and awe inspiring to be the best of the many I have been on with exodus, thank you.

Jordan - the Holiday That Just Keeps Giving!

The trip ‘A Week in Jordan’ is an experience that can leave even the most literate and verbally gifted (‘gobby’) at a loss for the right words to describe it. I was part of a 20-strong group that seemed to get on unusually well. There were some seriously seasoned travellers amongst us, yet we all came to the same conclusions, the same thoughts: time and again the destinations proved to be far larger and far grander than we had imagined. Jerash (an introductory diversion I believed) turned out to be a wonder in itself. Huge in expanse, so intricately detailed in parts, and as yet still so unexplored. In the West the word ‘Biblical’ is often used to describe something enormously significant – in Jordan ‘Biblical’ sites are dotted all around – like puzzle clues to a hidden image too big for the mind to grasp. The landscape becomes more than background. It becomes a fiery crucible on which you can imagine humans struggling and suffering just to stay alive through key moments in History. This is a land that does not seem ‘tamed’ by humans. I suspect this quality is a factor in why so many of the world religions have had their genesis nearby? But that’s enough of the florid prose. Let us skip to the star of the show: Petra. No images, no movie scenes (and there have been many) could ever capture the mind-blowing scale of this site. The famous ‘Treasury’ (as seen in Indiana Jones, Sinbad, The Mummy etc.) is just a particularly pretty door… that leads into a house of ancient wonders. The two days spent here are a lifetime investment.
