Amazing experience with Omar Ghazi an ex guide with his own desert experience. We were picked up from our hotel in Aqaba and taken out to Wadi Rum where we were met with a first class 4 hour desert experience with a Wadi Rum born English speaking beduin guide/ driver. Omar was the ultimate guide bypassing all of the hype to show us the real Wadi Rum.
Explaining the influence of the Nabateans, the wells and the value of the natural environment. He explained to us his contact details hard to find overseas wadirumdeserttours@gmail.com
We were left in awe at the scale of the desert lands and the mountains and will always remember his efforts to make us so welcome in the Kingdom of Jordan.

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.

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.

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.

We took 3 hours tour & paid USD 50. If you are staying in gulf then i would say it is not worth as gulf resident would have seen desert
In those countries. But if u r passing thru wadi rum then u can visit. But shall not plan specifically for wadi rum.

Started with a 4X4 safari of the desert area. Went up some hills for a superb view of the desert. Took a camel ride to a Bedouin rest stop tent with hot tea and toilet facilities. Then continued with the 4X4 safari ride. Camel ride is extra JOD15 per pax for almost 30 mins ride to the rest stop tent.

I did a jeep tour with Aeith and it was a once in a lifetime experience. He is a terrific guide and very knowledgeable; he knew so much about the habits/characteristics of the various animals, plants and terrain. It made the whole trip very enlightening and entertaining. Also he cooked is an amazing lunch over a fire deep in the desert. Great guide and highly recommended!

The Wadi Rum desert was an amazing experience, beautiful view all around of the desert and how marvelous everything was around there, from the lifestyle of the locals to the animals and such a spectacular view of the sunset on the mountains but the service was bad, the private tour we had didn’t provide us with a great tour of the desert, it was pretty rushed the whole time and our driver did not take us to the sand dunes and the food was bad as well and there was no show either. Overall the experience was good but the entire service was bad
