Trip review
Jordan

loved their trip to Jordan

I started the tour in Anman for 2 nights visiting ancient sites, followed by one night in Petra and one night in the Dead Sea. Of all the ancient sites visited on my Middle East trip, Petra takes the cake. I especially enjoyed walking through the Siq. The red sands of Wadi Rum accentuated the desert. The Dead Sea hotel is actually a resort on the grounds of the Dead Sea, which makes it easy to access the waters. The water was warm in mid November. The weather was warmer than I expected, with a bit of humidity.

Best parts:
Dead Sea! It was a surreal experience standing in the water without touching the bottom. Petra and Wadi Rum were also amazing experiences. I rode on the camel multiple times on this Middle East trip, and the camel ride in Wadi Rum is the best. It feels the most authentic, riding on the camel in the open desert. All the accommodations were centrally located, especially in Petra. It was one block from the entrance to Petra. Hala, the travel agent was patient, accommodating, and helpful. She answered all my endless e-mails without a complaint.
Worst parts:
I wish the driver would look at his cell phone less often, as this is a safety issue. However, the driver is skilled enough that I have less qualms about it than other drivers that I know. I wish I had more time in Petra. I believe the original itinerary planned to have the desert ride in Wadi Rum at sunrise, but my driver suggested sunset is better, hence curtailing my time in Petra.
