Fiona's review for another Explore tour
“If felt like we missed a lot of things:
1.Cycling down from mount Nebo
2.Cycling the kings highway
3.The off road cycling in the desert
4.The coffee demonstration in the camp
5. The church in Madaba
While some of this was due to weather and so out of your control it wasnt clear what we got instead to replace these missed experiences.

“Our first trip with Explore was to South Africa for our honeymoon and it was fantastic. Out of the many trips we have taken it remains our favourite.
Costa Rica is well up there with a couple of others in second place. A wonderful experience.”
