Wadi Rum - tour and overnight stay recommendationsHello,
Does anybody have any recommendations for a tour/agent to organise a jeep tour and overnight stay in a camp at Wadi Rum?
I have done a bit of reading up on this and it seems there are a multitude of different places to try, I'd be keen to hear of your experiences good or bad. I had read that I should use people mentioned on the Jordan Jubilee website (rumguides.com & bedouinroads.com). Has anybody had any experiences of these?
I will be traveling from Petra, does anybody know what time the bus leaves and arrives?

1Generally the folks recommended in JordanJubilee provide good service. Another option is to ask your hotel operator if they will put you with a few other travelers and offer a shared taxi and a good rate with a guide and camp.
I stayed at the Cleopetra and that's what they did for me. I was very happy with their service, but other hotels also will do this. The benefit of a shared taxi is it's faster, more comfortable, direct to the visitor center and about the same price (if you get four people or so).

2I just spent the night at the Bedouin Directions camp on Saturday, and it was fantastic. We had a 4x4 tour during the day (40jd a head including an amazing lunch). The camp itself was 50jd for a 2 person tent, including dinner (also fantastic). There was a great atmosphere in the camp- the guys were all great, and the overall experience was amazing.
I also travelled from Petra - the bus leaves at 6.30am and gets in for 8.30. It's 5jd pp, and an extra dinar per piece of luggage.
Enjoy your trip!

I went to Jordan in Oct 2011 and did a one day Camel trek and overnight stay in the desert followed by Jeep back to Wadi Musa the next morning. The chap that organised ours was Dkelallh Zalabaeh the whole things cost 65JD each which we though was good value. We did tip the camel guide as well. There were only 4 of us staying at the camp and we spent a great evening learning about Bedouin life and smoking the argela.
The camel tour was uncomfortable but good fund and our guide was a great guy.
I can also thoroughly recommend doing the canyoning at Wadi Mujib.
I hope you have an amazing trip.
