“I may easily have missed this, but a warning to bring really sensible walking shoes for Petra would have been good. I had no idea I would end up walking 12 miles and climbing 70+ floors each day! Wish I had brought my walking boots”

“Pace was good for most of the children (11 and up). The younger children struggled occasionally.
Possible guidance on how much to tip tour leader/driver. I ‘googled’ and tipped accordingly!”
