The guide was very good and nice, told us a lot of stories about the desert and was very patient. He took pictures and even helped us shopping.
Regarding the car, you can find much better around as it was very uncomfortable.
Dear Nabjana Shabanaj,
Thank you for your feedback. Our guide's vehicles are standard for Wadi Rum, and we will continue to make improvements regarding comfort. Riding along bumpy desert tracks in the back of our 4x4s is all part of the adventure. Guests are always welcome to sit in the vehicle's passenger seats, which are less bouncy.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in Jordan. All the best, Khaled and the team from Desert Eyes.
So it wasn't something we expected. There's a lot of hiking/climbing involved. The driver(guide) takes you to famous spots and you would be on your own hiking/climbing up places to take pictures of the great views. They were all great. we were able to take many great pictures. Our driver was soooo kind. Very flexible with time we were supposed to start at 1 pm but arrived early (like 11:30am). They said they are ready to go anytime we want (we had a quick lunch so ended up starting at 12:30). We ended around 5 pm ish. We took our time taking pictures or just sit and relax. The driver never showed any annoyance or frustration of us taking our time. He was just great and kind!!
At the end of the tour they do take you to "souvenir shop" but they never push hard to sell things. Once you mention you're not interested they won't push.
If you do decide to go on this tour, make sure you are ready to climb up places. The driver did provide us water bottles but if you have one of those water bottles that keep it cold, I would suggest brining those as it can be really really hot out in the desert.
We had a really good time. Had the whole tour to ourselves. Everyone was extremely personable and we even got to meet a family member and write our names in the sand in Arabic. The tour itself is like every other jeep tour and we hit up the same spots as most people. Overall, still had a great time and were taken care of the entire time. They kept us hydrated and entertained. Thanks for the adventure!!
Thank you for sharing your review. We're happy to hear you enjoyed the tour with our guide Mafleh. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels. Best regards, Khaled and the team at Desert Eyes
I almost didn't book this tour: I was apprehensive about going into the desert in the summer, and even after I decided on that, I wasn't sure about camping. Would it be too much?
We started with the one hour camel ride and then did the half-day jeep tour. This was after a four hour bus ride to get to Aqaba from Amman, and then a taxi out to Wadi Rum. (Desert Eyes arranged that for us too.) It was a long day, but worked out perfectly. We kept on saying, "we're going to sleep well tonight;" then the stars were so amazing it was tough to go to bed!
We saw a few other groups while we were out in the 4x4, but my friend and I were the only two people at camp. It was a great first post-COVID excursion, and I'm glad I chose this one instead of the glamping. I suppose I do want to sleep in a bubble someday, but I liked the accommodations here (tiny cabin for two, exterior bathroom with plumbing/showers) and it was 25% of the bubble/glamping price.
I'm so glad we went for this tour! I'd say it's one of the top tours I've done in my life...and I've been to 40+ countries. The scenery is breathtaking, the food was incredible, our guide was fantastic, so many sights to see, and the stars...wow. One night wasn't enough, really. I would go back in an instant, and I would come back to Jordan specifically for this.
You can only submit a review or rating of an experience to Viator if you were the person who made the booking through Viator. Before publication, each review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information for each of the following criteria: who, what, how, and when. If the system detects something that contradicts our publication criteria, the review is not published. When the system detects a problem with a review, it may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site. In some cases, we will also send you an email asking you to validate your review before it is published. All you need to do is click on the link provided in the email. After publication, our team checks each review reported to it as not meeting our publication criteria. Tripadvisor reviews that appear on the Viator site are subject to the same checks and moderation processes as set out above. It is not necessary to have booked an experience through Viator (or Tripadvisor) to submit a review of an experience to the Tripadvisor site.
Viator wants to make your searches as relevant as possible. That’s why we offer many ways to help you find the right experiences for you. On some pages, you can select how to sort the results we display and also use filter options to see only those search results that meet your chosen preferences. You’ll see explanations of what those sort options mean when you select them. You’ll see some experiences with a “Promoted” badge, which means that the operators of those experiences have agreed to pay Viator more to have their experience highlighted. If you see an Experience Award Winner label, the award is based on average review ratings, share of bookings with a review, and number of bookings through Viator over a 12-month period. The importance of any one factor over any other in a sort order varies, and the balance is constantly being reviewed and adjusted. We’re always updating our systems and testing new ways to refine and improve your results to make them as relevant as possible to meet your needs.
