Petra & Wadi Rum Trek

Sand and rocks

3
It was only after my first few steps into the desert that I remembered how much I dislike walking on soft, moveable sand, but I guess that is to be expected in the desert! The chef worked miracles to produce huge portions of tasty food, seemingly out of nothing. The downside at the camp sites (for three nights) was the lack of a mess tent and somewhere to sit comfortably (we sat on cushions in a square around the fire, with no back support), and the toilet facilities: ladies to the left, gents to the right, dig your own hole and cover it up with sand. Ironically the longest day of the whole trek was the tour of Petra (20km). This is a hugely impressive place, tombs and houses hewn out of the solid rock and approached through a narrow canyon. We were taken past/into all the main sites, then returned by way of the High Place of Sacrifice, from which you get a stunning view of the whole site, but the downside was being constantly hassled by people trying to sell you things, and having to leap out of the way of passing pony and trap combinations, and passing camels. The hotels in Amman and Petra were fine, although it would have been good to know that the one in Amman was 'dry'

An amazing trek in beautiful scenery.

This was a trip arranged at very short notice as my trip to the Simien Mountains in Ethiopia was cancelled. I viewed it as a consolation prize but it turned out to be the exact opposite. The desert scenery was stunning, the walking was pitched at the right level and the itinerary was superb. The icing on the cake was that the whole group was lovely.

Amazing - I loved the desert

5
What an experience - trekking in the desert is like nothing I have ever done before. I loved the space, the quiet and the rhythm of the actual walking. The stars at night were unbelievable. The food for us veggies was excellent and really varied and tasty. I felt that I had grown by this whole experience.

What a great trip

5
This was such a brilliant trip and exceeded my expectations. We had perfect weather with blue skies and sunshine but it wasn't too hot for trekking. The desert scenery is simply stunning and takes your breath away - it really is spectacular. Petra is amazing but for me trekking in the desert and sleeping out under the stars was the highlight.

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.

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.
