Combination of reddish sand and the descending sun was stunning. We saw the place where use to be Lawrence of Arabia camp, caravan of camels, Bedouins and prehistoric petroglyphs... More

My friend and I spent 3 days in Wadi Rum. On the first day we took a full day jeep tour. We rode camel on the 2nd day, and hiked the Jebel Addami and Burdah bridge on the 3rd day. It was December and not many visitors, but no people around means you can completely immerse yourself into the landscape... More

The Bedouin driver knew the desert well and drove us peacefully to amazing sites, helped us with good advises and spirit. Most... More

The tour in Wadi Rum is a mix of wonderful things -- unique landscape, beduins interaction, important place in the Arab revolution and also amazing nabatean petrogliphs. If you have a chance, get one night in the hotels on the desert to experience star gazing and dinner in tents.

Calm and peaceful. The sand absorbs the noise around you so you feel that you are really with yourself. Seeing sunset was a very beautiful experience - the light, the colors. It is the place you can reflect yourself.

As part of our trip to Jordan this was included. We debated about whether to do it and we are so glad we did. We did the 4x4 experience and two hours seemed a long time - it went so quick. It is truly magical - in touch with nature. We were able to get out and wander around. We... More
