I rarely eulogise about anything, so it comes as shock to find myself searching for superlatives to describe how truly magnificent this journey was. Its organisation and its composition were faultless. Nevertheless I think the overriding influence on the tone of the trip and the reason why we found it so rewarding was the personal influence provided by the local agent and our guide, Tala Momani.

Great itinerary - some real fun walks through the Jebels. I loved the pace of this holiday - it was perfect. Yusuf, our guide, was excellent. A really lovely fun guy, who was always so helpful and cheery. Yusuf and Salem made the holiday so much fun - a great pairing. Yusuf was also a fantastic tour guide in Petra - I learned a lot. I will definitely recommend this holiday. Fantastic scenery, walks/scrambling, food and also hilarious evenings around the camp fire. I loved the scrambling with Salem. The evenings in camp with the other Trekkers and the guides was excellent fun. Yusuf and Salem were very entertaining. I haven't been on a trip where I have laughed so much. I have also never eaten so well! I also enjoyed the free time in the camps in the early evenings just chatting with the other trekker, watching the sunsets etc. This holiday exceeded my expectations. I didn't expect it to be so much fun. Yusuf and Salem and his team (Ali and Mohammed) were fantastic company. I loved being in the peace of the dessert - I'd have happily stayed another week! Plus a great tour of Petra with Yusuf. A long day but loved every minute.

Our trip leaders were excellent in every way. Both Yousef and Saleem had a good sense of humour. Most enjoyed the companionship of all the group: Being in the company of the Bedouins and sharing their food, and experiencing their diet; and being 'blown away' by Petra. Fantastic scenery in Wadi Rum.

I most enjoyed the education about cultural issues, meeting and conversing with the bedouins, amazing food, Talas' company (guide) and the group dynamics.

The whole holiday was excellent from start to finish. The local crew were brilliant. Salem is an excellent guide. He was always cheerful. He and the rest of the crew made everything fun. Most importantly for me; he gave me confidence to do all the scrambling. The whole crew did everything they could to make the trip as enjoyable as possible.

Very helpful office staff followed up phone calls and had excellent helpful manner. Wadi rum was dramatic and so was the trekking and Petra. We thoroughly enjoyed camping and were well looked after on the trek by our Bedouin Guide. Our companions on the trek were fantastic.

The camping places were fantastic - so remote and beautiful. The scenery and treks were great - whole area much more awe inspiring than I had thought it would be.
