Review for another Exodus Travels tour
“This was our first trek and we we struck gold - the scenery and people of Nepal are beautiful. They have left a lasting impression and a return trip is a must. The porters and guides looked after us - lugging our gear and organising food and accommodation, pointing out wildlife and keeping us safe - always smiling, they created a real family feel to the group. I miss the early morning wake up call of a cheerful Namaste with a cup of tea and a stunning sunrise.”

“When we told our friends and relatives we were going to Jordan there were generally the sort of intakes of breath you hear from a car mechanic who is about to tell you you need a new engine. 'Isn't that a bit risky' etc etc etc plus dodgy jokes about being chained to radiators and youtube executions. Well, if you're thinking about this trip then the first thing to do is scratch those worries from your mind. Jordan feels safe and stable. Everyone we met was fiercely proud of its independent moderate stance amidst the political and internecine chaos and strife that surrounds it. The population is literate, charming, welcoming and wryly humorous. Walking the streets of Amman is largely a hassle free experience - in comparison, say, with the in-your-face onslaught of somewhere like Marrakech. But right now the Jordanian tourist industry is suffering with people scared to go to the region, so Jordan desperately needs visitors - and all the more reason to go. Support their economy and get to see amazing sights which are hardly crowded at all.
So, this trip. We've done five Exodus tours, and enjoyed all of them in different ways, but this is right up there with the very best. It's a tightly packed itinerary - at the golden centre of which is two and a half days in and around Petra. A lot of tours settle for a day or even just a few hours, but after the first gobsmacking day exploring the main Petra site itself, Exodus offer a day's hike around the High places surrounding the Petra gorge. This is a very special experience indeed - we saw only two other tourists during the whole high places hike! Although I'd read that Petra was spectacular, and I'm a bit of an old cynic, the place far exceeded expectations. No one can be disappointed by experiencing this extraordinary place.
But there's more to Jordan than Petra - it's a week crammed with breathtaking landscapes, a rich and varied archaeological history, and accessible cuisine, and a night in a spectacular desert. Oh yes, and there's snorkelling in the Red Sea, and floating in the Dead Sea too.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this holiday to anyone.”
