Hi I am traveling from Buenos Aires to Jordan, I will came the May 8, 2015 to Aqaba, meet fellow travelers to share costs and be more fun, I'm alone, and I will rent a car and driver to travel from Aqaba to the border with Israel, visiting Petra, a night in a Bedouin camp, Amman, I'm looking for meet to share costs, if you are interested let me know, I travel alone so more fun and inexpensive trip. Hints and tips are welcome.
This is a great location for an electric golf buggy or an electric tuk-tuk.
Is it possible to join a jeep tour in the afternoon? Ideally, I'd join a jeep tour and stay in the desert for the night.
Any recommendations? I read somewhere that it would be ok to just show up in Wadi Rum village and sign up for a tour there vs advanced reservation? Can I get a better price/negotiate that way?
Instead of renting a car, I had the idea that I would just hire a driver who can show/drive me around (Amman, Madaba, Mt. Nebo, Dead Sea, Kerak) and eventually ending up in Wadi Musa and dropping me off there. I emailed a few travel agents and they would gladly do it but for $$$$. Basically it would be a private tour with just me.
Do you know of or have used a reliable driver who can do this? If so, I would appreciate if you shared a phone number or email so I can try to organize…
Those familiar with the crossing, will not be surprised that a Jordanian government spokesman announced that the Nasib crossing was closed late Tuesday. Nasib was the only working gateway between the two countries and served Syrian and Jordanian officials and traders.
From what I've read, there is 1 bus from Amman to Petra at 630am on JETT. Are there other alternatives to this? Are there other bus companies, shuttles, etc that can take me from Amman to Wadi Musa? I'd be willing to take smaller inter town vehicles, etc. I would like to leave Amman early afternoon (evening preferable) so I arrive at Wadi Musa in the evening and tour Petra the next morning. How much would a taxi run if I hire it from Amman airport to Petra?
Are there tours that I can join in Wadi Musa that can take me to Wadi Rum to stay at a bedouin camp overnight in the desert? If so, any recommended ones? Another option would be to take public transport to Wadi Rum and join a tour there. Any recommended ones there as well?
Thanks a lot. I really…
