“Thoroughly enjoyable trip, although I would have sacrificed some of the sightseeing in tourist spots for more desert walking”

“I have travelled with other tour companies & love it when we get to meet locals. In Aqaba we went to the local craft market which was an excellent chance to meet local women. We would have liked to meet with a group of women to understand their lives.”
