Wadi Rum is a must do if you are visiting Jordan. We went to Wadi Rum after visiting Petra. We stayed at Panorama Camp, operated by Hani & his brothers. Accommodation was very good and hot running water was available. We had a delicious bedouin dinner. Breakfast was OK. In the morning we wanted to do the balloon ride but it was canceled due to high winds. We did an hour of camel ride. After lunch we went for a 4 hour jeep ride with Salem, Hani's younger brother. This was a most amazing ride at the end of which were taken to a spot where you could watch the sunset. A sight to behold.

We did the 24 hour experience on Sept 17th. My 3 adult kids and myself. We did enjoy our time in the desert and all we saw, however we cannot recommend our guide. We had Mohammad, who we were told was Omar's brother. He was very soft spoken and gave only the briefest of instructions. In fact one of our first stops, instead of telling us about it, he simply said, go read the sign. When we stopped at the camp for lunch, he fell asleep after he ate. We made noise and woke him up. He walked outside and lay down again. My son finally went and woke him again, and he said "15-20 minutes, we go". We asked, will we miss anything? He said, no, plenty of time. But that was not the case. He hurried us later that afternoon. We had specifically asked to be allowed extra time to sand board, and that was rushed. The next stop was, hurry, hurry. And we barely made it to the sunset place before the sun set. However, the worst, was the next morning he scammed us good. As we were driving to the village in the back of the truck, I said to my kids, I have one Turkish bill left, Don't let me forget to spend it as we transfer back through there. Did he hear me? Is this a regular scam? I don't know. I simply handed Mohammed the bills folded up, that I had counted out earlier, and we turned to our taxi driver who was waiting for us. Mohammed came and tapped me on the shoulder and said, no, not a Jordan bill. He handed me a 100 Turkish bill. I was sure I had given him a 100 Jordan bill. He was insistent. We had to give more money. Actually more than what we owed because we had to pay in our remaining American bills. A few minutes later in the taxi, after going through my purse and our careful accounting, I now had an extra Turkish bill. Both 100 bills are blue, the difference being the Turkish 100 bill is worth about $17 American dollars, and the 100 Jordan bill is worth about $140 American dollars. So shame on you, Mohammed. There are lots of desert camps, so please pick a different one for our guide fleecing us.

Take a Jeep ride in Wadi Rum for some spectacular desert views. Better still stay overnight in a Bedouin camp for great food and to see the impact of the sunset and the sunrise on the rocks which rise from the valley floor.

First let me say that what we saw and did on this 24 hour tour was great. However, we did not enjoy our guide. We had Mohammad, who was Omar's brother. Omar is the owner. Our guide only gave the briefest of instructions/explanations. When we stopped at the camp for lunch, our guide fell asleep. We waited, made some noise. He got up and went and laid down outside. We finally went to him and he said, 15, 20 minutes we go. We asked would be miss anything. He said, no plenty of time. So we waited while he finished his nap. However, he hurried us in the afternoon. We had told him we wanted as much time for the sandboarding as possible. We would skip other things to have extra time there, but he hurried us through that, hurried us through another hike and we had to hurry to hike to the sunset point. But the worst was next morning; he drove us back to the village where we had a taxi ride waiting. I handed him our bills folded together, carefully counted out. We were getting into the taxi and he came to me and said, not a Jordan bill. He handed me a Turkish 100 bill. I had just a couple minutes before told my group that I had one bill left over from being in Turkey, so let's not forget to spend it in their airport as we transfered there. I'm assuming Mohammad heard that. We had to collect money from the group to pay and pay extra because we didn't have enough Jordian money and had to give extra American $20 bills. Minutes later in the taxi, after going through my purse and going through our careful records, I now had 2 turkish bills instead of my original one. So Mohammad pulled a fast one. Both the Jordan and the Turkish 100 bills are blue. The difference is the Turkish bill is about $17 and the Jordan bill is worth about $141. Shame on you Mohammad! We did enjoy the sights of the desert, But we can't recommend this guide or tour. Go somewhere else for them scamming us out of that much money.
