We worked with the travel company to build out a 2 week custom itinerary that started with a few days in Jerusalem, then the Dead Sea and Eilat. We then crossed over to Jordan and saw Wadi Rum, Petra, Amman and then crossed back into Israel and saw the northern part of Israel ending our trip in Tel Aviv.
Overall the trip was very good and we really enjoyed all the sites, learning about the history. Our guide in Israel was excellent - very knowledgable, friendly and extremely flexible. We had changes and he was very accommodating and we appreciated that. Same was true as well as the tour company/guide/driver in Jordan. The new Wadi Rum camp was absolutely fantastic.
The only part of the tour that was disappointing was the lack of attention to detail on meals. We had advised the travel company that we were vegetarian. Our guide had no idea that we were vegetarian or where to take us to eat, nor were our dietary restrictions communicated to the Jordan tour company or guide. We ended up having falafal lunches most days or pizza at a strip mall. In Jordan, our lunch comprised of french fries and cold salad at rest stops. Dinners were fine since we did them on our own. If you have any kind of dietary restrictions, I would highly recommend work closely with the travel company to ensure they understand expectations. If it was not for the meals, I would have given them a 5 star review.
