Gecko has indicated that this thread is about Jordan

Hi. I'll be in Jordan from 13th - 20th June and want to spend at least 2 of these days exploring Wadi Rum.

I have been to Wadi Rum once before, so I know that turning up at the Visitors' Centre, then trying to get a group of people to agree on which trip to do can only end badly! It's far better - and cheaper - to book a trip in advance and after lots of surfing (none of it at work of course...), I found a trip that looks perfect:

Ideally, I'm looking for 2 or 3 photography-loving, squash & tennis-playing, cinema-going, travel-addicts, who subscribe to Wanderlust magazine and like The Duke Spirit, Ladytron and Paloma Faith. However, I realise that might be expecting a little too much, so in reality, I am just looking for 2 or 3 people!

So, if you fancy this trip, please send me a message / email etc and we can have a chat.

Phil

Hi Eddie

I would recommend 3 days at Petra, 2 days in Wadi Rum and day trips to Jerash and the Dead Sea from Amman. If you have more time, Dana Nature Reserve is supposed to be stunning too, but I've not been there yet. From Amman you could also easily reach Damascus and Beirut. If you make it to Lebannon, I would definitely go to Baalbek and if you go to Damascus, you could stop off at Bosra on the way - the possibilities are endless!

Did you have a look at that Wadi Rum trip? If you just turn up at Wadi Rum Visitors' Centre, there are 9 tours to choose from, but they only range from a few hours to a full day. To do longers trips and to stay in Wadi Rum overnight, you have to book with a company in advance and they meet you at the Visitors' Centre. Also, it's cheaper to book in advance.
