Omar -
We're safely back and still somewhat in recovery (just tired from long flights; no health problems at all throughout the entire trip) from one of the best trips of our lives.

As for Jordan, you can quote us that this was an exciting and tremendously valuable add-on to our Egypt adventure. Petra itself is worth a special trip, but the beauty of Wadi Rum is not to be missed. The guide (Nadine Tali) assigned by your colleagues in Amman was absolutely fantastic. She was bright, constantly cheerful, extremely informative and just a delight.

The interplay between Nadine and Adib, the driver, was also delightful; his English was pretty good, but Nadine would translate their comments for us and always kept us in the conversation. She made it a point during our drives to give us background on politics, history, food, clothing, social customs, etc about Jordan without our having to ask which made the trip particularly informative. [Also, and just for your own private information -- since I don't want to get her in trouble -- Nadine said the "panoramic tour" of Amman wasn't good enough; she insisted on also taking us to the Citadel in Amman, where we gladly paid the JD2 each for admission since it wasn't included in our package -- and we were so glad we did.

This is a very important stop and should be made a regular part of any Amman visit. The little archaeological museum there, with some of the oldest sculptured statutes every made by humans, fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls, early examples of burial sites, ceramic sarcophagi, etc etc etc, made for a fascinating hour -- plus the great views of Amman, the Roman temple, and so on.] Nadine also made it a point to show us her own neighborhood and some of the upscale homes in Amman which gave us a good, if too brief, feel for the city. We even loved our stop at the Dead Sea, one of nature's own amusement parks. In six days we felt we had really thoroughly explored and enjoyed an important new tourist destination.

Just to wrap it all up, we came home thoroughly delighted with your help with this trip. The agencies you worked with were obviously top-notch, and we know it is no accident when this happens but is instead due to your diligence in selecting them.

I only hope that we come across some people looking to plan a trip to the region so we can INSIST that they contact you at the outset.

Many thanks again.
