Nader (our guide) was excellent in every respect. Knowledgeable, and interesting conversationalist. We learned a great deal about Jordan. He was good company and positive with the group's interactions.
The way the trip was structured and the way that it unfolded meant that every hour of each day brought new wonderful experiences.
The nights at the Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum, seeing the stars, the food and company of Mohammed and Yusef (the camp crew) was particularly enjoyable.

Both the Guide Yousef and the driver Taleb did everything to look after us and were very informative about every aspect of Jordanian history and culture.
All of the sites we visited Wadi Rum and meeting the Bedouins was the highlight.

This was a superior holiday. I can't say enough good things about how well put together the itinerary was. The sites selected and the pacing of the trip were just right. When I looked at the trip, it seemed like it might be hectic, but in fact it was very relaxed, with the right amount of time everywhere. The car that transported us was very good. Most especially: Ahmad was a very safe driver, which I really appreciated. Our trip leader, Yousef, was kind, helpful and a good explainer of the history and local culture. I most enjoyed Wadi Rum and Petra, especially having tea at the Bedouin cave. Also Floating in the Dead Sea - very weird. Loved the food. Having specific tip guidance removed a major source of stress. This trip exceeded my expectations. I recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see Jordan, and isn't exclusively interested in trekking. You guys did a really good job of putting together a short, interesting trip, that was relaxed yet active, and very varied.

I want to emphasize that I was delighted by this trip. The choice of places to visit and the amount of time to spend at them was nearly perfect.
I loved this trip. You struck an excellent balance between how many places to visit and how long to visit them. The amount of activity was very good, in the middle between sedentary and strenuous. Jordan is very beautiful and hospitable. I sincerely hope you can invent more trips like this in other parts of the world.
The jeep ride and walks in Wadi Rum probably were my favorites. Petra is more spectacular than its photos and the walk into it from Little Petra was wonderful. Floating in the Dead Sea is pretty silly but it was fun, so I'm glad we did it.
I'm a happy veteran of several KE trips.

A brilliant introduction to the Middle East tempting me to return to Jordan. Nader Saleh and the driver Ziad were just fantastic, being very helpful, informative and friendly. Most enjoyed - The trekking and walking, the local information readily transmitted by the guide. The highlight being Wadi Rum and meeting the Bedouins, plus a 3day old camel!
