Costa Rica Traverse

The trip was wonderful, thanks! The local operator, Coast to Coast, were very well organised and especially Danny, the lead guide, was the best guide I have ever seen in action. It was a privilege to be guided by such a well-rounded and versatile person - from navigating and motivating the group, to cooking (delicious food) and patching up blisters. And always with a smile on his face.

I am already planning my next trip with World Expeditions - rafting on the Franklin River in Tasmania.

Jordan Highlights

Discover all the must see places on this tantalising journey including breathtaking archaeological treasures, Roman ruins, grand mosques and Crusader fortresses. First on the agenda are the delightful Desert Castles and the second century Roman ampitheatre in Amman. At Um Qais we gain a sense of what Moses saw with views of the Jordan Valley, Golan Heights and the Sea of Galilee. The rose-red city of Petra is revealed through a narrow gorge, where you'll be awe struck by the structures that were carved into the soaring sandstone walls by the Nabataean civilization in the third century B.C. A short walk in the Dana Nature Reserve is proceeded by our foray into the Wadi Rum, a spectacular desert landscape and the backdrop for our camel, jeep and foot explorations. In the south we relax on the beautiful shores of Aqaba at the Red Sea. Our final days include visits to the Baptism site of John the Baptist with some time to relax on the Dead Sea, Madaba known as the 'City of Mosaics' and Mount Nebo with its prized monastery.

traveller reviews

There were so many trip highlights, but probably Petra would have to be a contender, especially having two whole days there. Travel knowing that the Jordanians are delighted to welcome you to their country and extremely hospitable. Pack sturdy walking shoes and hiking sandals. Abdullah is wonderful - he is knowledgeable, friendly and a delightful guide.
