Footsteps of Lawrence - Jordan

Experience Level

Ride and Visit to Dead Sea

5 star rating   16 October 2017

Horses are very well taken care of. Machmoud who takes care of the horses cleans the eyes and nose with a cloth. You can see those horses are being loved by their owners. You have to be a good rider although they have also "easier" horses for less experience/adventurous riders. All horses have a high level of cuddling. Saleem the owner is very social and tried his best to get to know everyone. I can only recommend this trail if you like 'back to basics' kind of travelling with extra ordinary nature landscape.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Hotels in Petra and Madaba were comfortable. Food during desert trail was abundant and very tasteful.
Tents where was you can expect from tents ;-). But they chose nice spots in the desert. Amazing view of the stars with many falling stars.
The staff put up and take down the tents.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

Maybe giving a better view on the safety regulation for electronic devices you can take on board when leaving Amman. Lithium batteries are also forbidden. Only on the way back from Amman and not towards Amman. Maybe a note so we better pay attention to it.
