From start to finish I have been super impressed with the friendliness and efficiency of finding out what options are available and booking my tour, through to the experience itself.
Scotia was very helpful in providing information by email whilst I was exploring the options to get the most of out of my half day in the area. Detailed guidance and tips were provided and private transfers were also arranged for me which meant I had a smooth experience and could relax knowing everything was taken care of.
On the day of the tour itself Khaled made himself available and was able to provide friendly advice in helping me to meet with the driver for the transfer to Wadi Rum. The driver regularly works with Khaled and so it was helpful that everyone was in sync. Because I had the Jordan Pass entering Wadi Rum desert was very quick and I experienced no issues. The pass itself can stay on your phone, so no need to print it out.
Khaled’s uncle was my tour guide for the day, and I had the pleasure of being driven around the desert in a brand new small Land Cruiser that was super fun - especially when whizzing over the dunes! He was a very fun guide, and was awesome at guiding me on how to climb some of the more difficult rocks. He’s a professional climber and so we were able to get to some places that no other tourists were - imagine some of the most amazing views across the desert with no other tourist in sight. We managed to fit a lot into the time we had, and at no point did I feel rushed - giving me plenty of time to take as many pictures as I wanted.
We finished at their family camp, and in traditional Bedouin style we had some of the most amazing pit-cooked food. We were even shown how the food itself is cooked. Eating dinner outside in the moonlight under an entire galaxy of stars is an experience I won’t forget.
Overall I was so impressed with everything from start to finish, and it was one of the most amazing excursions I’ve ever been on. Don’t hesitate to contact Scotia and Khaled to organise your Wadi Rum experience - you won’t be disappointed!
