Aqaba (Petra) Wadi Rum Walking Tour Excursion Reviews

The ancient desert valley of Wadi Rum has been home to countless inhabitants, from the Nabateans to T. E. Lawrence. Take in extraordinary views of towering rock structures over flat desert with this beautiful and historically significant walking tour!
As we had already been to Petra (a must see) we decided on Wadi Rum this time.

Enjoyed the coach trip booked through Marella. Wadi Rum is a great place to see but is spoilt by all the others seeing it too. The best way to see the valley would be via a vehicle with no roof (our coach stopped a couple of times instead). Lunch was at a tourist campsite. The food was OK (not good) and best eaten with one hand, the other hand being used to keep the flies at bay. Amusingly there were more flies at lunch than in the toilets... Read Less

The Wadi Rum was interesting as well as the Bedouin dinner.

The Wadi Rum was interesting as well as the Bedouin dinner. The vehicles were less than stellar but we managed to get back in one piece.

It was not a walking tour. Rather we rode, and walked, through the sand dunes. An exciting experience.

Tour was bench seats in the back of a pick-up truck which did not initially impress us. However (only 6 to a truck) it was a hoot. We were in a short sand storm, then it rained (in the Sahara Desert) and then got hot. Seems we encountered all seasons on one tour. Wadi Rum cannot be captured in pictures. It must be seen to be appreciated. This was our favorite tour of the cruise. Read Less
