Tour Add-ons

Enhance your trip with these amazing added extras and add-ons

Jordan was a revelation. This part of the tour was fast paced and full on. Hamed managed our group very well and kept us all safe. It’s not that easy with all the physical activity involved. He communicated well and always looked after our needs. He was well organised and determined our group would always have the best. Great accommodation and transportation. Hamed gave me confidence to do the canyoning which I loved. He really is a great asset to your company.

We lived Jordan. Well organised, nice people and amazing history.
