Petra & Wadi Rum by Bike

Petra and Wadi Rum by bike 25th March to 2nd April 2017

An excellent holiday. Hugely interesting part of the world. Well planned and even though an Arab Summit meant a change of itinerary, everything was fitted in, and in fact it was possibly better to do the Dead Sea at the end of the week anyway. On the whole everyone got on well. We were the oldest in the group and the pace was slightly fast for us. I also had a problem with my knees which meant I couldn't cycle as much as I wanted to,but everyone, guides, tourist police officer and other cyclists were helpful and supportive. We felt completely safe and it is a shame Tourism in Jordan is suffering from a down turn in holiday makers due to the situation in the Middle East

The holiday was action packed from start to finish and I was taken aback by the variety of sights that we saw during the trip. Whilst the first two cycles were a bit disappointing, the remaining cycles were much more interesting and challenging. In particular, I really enjoyed our longest cycling day through the desert - our group spread out on this day so for large parts of it I was in my "own world" riding through the spectacular desert scenery.

The itinerary covered many of the best archeological sites in Jordan, with the added highlight of a night camping under the stars (which we couldn't see because, much to our surprise, it rained in the desert) in Wadi Rum. Petra is magnificent, as is Little Petra, and we had plenty of time to explore both. Floating (because it is next to impossible to swim) in the Dead Sea ended our trip on a high note. The only itinerary flaw was Aqaba. It is a busy, noisy city, in which, for us, the only thing to do with our free morning was to take an expensive, dull and uninspiring boat trip to snorkel amidst underwater garbage.

They say variety is the spice of life and this trip has just about everything the ruins of Jerash second only to Pompeii, Petra a world heritage site, cycling through the desert on a deserted road probably saw 4 cars in 4 hours and snokerling on a coral reef (an extra). An activity based holiday split 50/50 between sightseeing and cycling so never a dull moment except when on the coach but the rest was welcome. I went end of November and it was COLD in Wadi Rum so be prepared

You'll be on the go for much of the time, as this trip packs a lot into a week. It's a great introduction to the country, which feels a million miles away from the troubles of its neighbours.

Good trip but hampered by the weather of very strong winds. This curtailed the cycling but remaining safe was a priority & taken seriously by our guide. It also made it colder than I was expecting however very dry with no rain
