We had an amazing tour with Desert Eco Tours and Why Jordan Tours. Their partnership enabled us to see so many wonderful things in both Israel and Jordan. In Israel we hiked in Ein Gedi, toured Masada, and swam in the Dead Sea. Our guide assisted us in crossing the border to Jordan where we were immediately met by a Why Jordan staff member and driven to our hotel. We were picked up the next morning and our guide, Mohammed, spent an amazing day with us in Petra. Wow! We stayed in Petra that night and then went on a Jeep tour of Wadi Rum desert. Another amazing day and another spectacular guide! Ali was our driver, our guide and our chef. And also a historian, and educator and quite a mountain climber! WHy Jordan took us to the border at the end of the day, helped us cross, and again we were met by Desert Eco Tours on the Israel side. Every hotel, tour, and meal arranged by these people were terrific! Guides were all top notch and incredibly knowledgeable in a wide range of topics - history, geology, languages, culture, humor, ... We learned a lot about the places we saw and we highly recommend traveling here and booking with these companies.
