Driver picked us up on time, the hand over to the guide was easy. Hopped into the back of the pick-up truck with benches. Off into the desert we went! Guide was knowledgable, spoke great English, took great photos for us, and picked a great spot to watch the sunset. He showed his love for Wadi Rum, history, and Jordon.
A Great 4 Hours - In The Desert of Jordan
, May 2019
First off booking was very easy online from the UK and we were kept up to date with Whats-apps until we arrived in Jordan. On the appointed day we were picked up from the gang plank of our cruise ship at the agreed time, all very easy, we were a group of 2x couples so 4 people. We then went to the next cruise ship berthed nearby to pick up another couple 2 people so 6 in our group. The website stated this was going to be a "private" tour but it does also so a small group, so you may be private but you may be sharing one vehicle of 6-8 people. The German people who joined us could speak English so we actually had good conversations with them but when we stopped at sites, we both went our different ways so not herded. Once we reached the Wadi Rum Valley we changed vehicle to a Toyota open top pickup truck kitted out with seats on the back. You have to climb in over the back bumper so you do need to be a bit active, one of our party had to travel inside with the driver but no problem. We then raced through the desert visiting various sites of interest and ended up on a rock formation just before sunset to see the sun go down behind the mountains and turn the deserted desert brilliant orange. We then went back to the previous meeting spot and picked up our return driver to the port again about an hours drive. A couple of points... (a) Obviously be aware the desert is not wick with toilets so you may have to pop round a rock formation if you really need to go!! (b) The sand turns white trainers etc red so go in old trainers or soft shoes you don't intend to use again on holiday! (c) Make sure the trainers/shoes you are use are not slippy, you will be climbing over smooth rocks etc and need to have some grip (natural rock bridge up height you may want to walk over, cave drawings from stone age man you may want to see etc). Very interesting, we all enjoyed doing the tour and looking back really glad we did do it. We will treasure our memories of Jordan and the desert for many years. Thanks all. Colin.
