Short Description

Explore Crusader castles and float in the Dead Sea, discover the remarkable lost city of Petra, camp out in Wadi Rum and more on this action packed eight day tour!

We felt we were given enough time in each place, although because of some earlier rain we were unable to do the hike at Wadi Rum. Our guide, Mohammed, made the whole tour really enjoyable. He gave us the right balance of humour, history and practical information as well as taking good care of a member of the group who suffered a minor injury. The hotels we stayed in were fine and staying at a 5 star hotel at the Dead Sea was a relaxing way to unwind and finish the trip.

Highlights of the trip were trekking through the gorges of Petra, first vision of the Treasury , 4WD through the desert outback of Wadi Rum and sunset in Wadi Rum desert. The tour group was well organised and managed by Mohammed. His knowledge and leadership skills are outstanding and On the Go is lucky to have such a dedicated and passionate employee to represent Jordan and its people.

His knowledge just blew my mind. He answered all my questions with such ease. He is funny and handled our group of different ages and needs with such ease. He is a natural at his job.If anyone in the group needed something he made sure we got it.

As for the tour and Jordan I had the most amazing time! The highlight was the morning hike with Muhammad in Petra. I have never been on a organised tour and I must say it blew my expectations. The food, hotels, camping in Wadi Puma and floating in the Dead Sea was all spectacular.

Thanks On the Go, I look forward to my trip to India in December.

Our tour guide Mohammed was so knowledgeable and his English was so clear. He made the holiday for me. He kept the group together and was extremely attentive to all our needs. The tour was varied and interesting. The hotels were all really clean and comfortable. The food at the hotels was excellent and the dinners our guide Mohammed took us to were very good value and extremely tasty.

Mohammed's English was good and easy to understand. Minor criticisms of the tour would be the picking up arrangements after evening optional tours which never quite seemed to work reliably - often leaving clients seeking their own way back to their accommodation.

It would have been useful in the Petra at night option to have been told beforehand that the site would (eventually) be fully illuminated if you stayed through the caterwauling to the bitter end. We decided to leave just before as we couldn't take photos/video in the light available and assumed that this situation would not change!

The pools at the the Holiday Inn on the Dead Sea need to have a lot more properly covered sunbeds. Both me and my wife got sunburn on the last day because of lack of cover.
Nonetheless, this was one of the best short holidays we have had and I would heartily recommend this tour and look forward to using On The Go Tours again at sometime in the future.

I think he has just won the 2018 best tour guide. I do think the program should include something else on the way to the Dead Sea when Wadi Mujib is not running. Either hot springs, john the baptism site or the Dead Sea museum (my personal preference as I did it on my own)
