The only part of the trip that I didn't like was that it wasn't even enough. My bad. I should've booked for a few more days. In Aqaba there were a lot of sites and water activities that I was thinking of getting into. And I will make sure that the next time I will be with my friends and families coming here. If only I could commit of another vacation within this year.

I was so bored but then when I saw how promising the offer was I decided to give it a shot. And it was such a great idea to have this trip. Me and my girlfriend did a lot of water activities in Aqaba. Will there be any fun than this? I love the part when we are at the jeep in Wadi Rum. My girlfriend was thrilled and it was the first time she ever had that excitement I see in her face. It wasn't just the jeep ride but also the red dessert that amazes us both.

We simply decided to have our tour this summer since we are on vacay. When we get into the Booking Jordan website, I was actually a bit wondering how come the rate was quite affordable for a 2 week trip. When I told my friends we all agree to book ahead and there it was. We had the most value for our money. We will make sure to try some other tour packages that you have here. Probably next year summer time again. See you again Jordan.

We were not expecting that our 14 days or 2 weeks in Jordan will be all that we will need for the entire year to make us feel like we have never felt before. I was actually in the brink of getting burnt out at work prior to booking this tour. But after the tour I really felt like it was all I need to feel energized again. I and two of my friends had the same feeling as we did it this summer of 2017. We had the best time in Aqaba doing all sorts of water activities. We will go back Jordan for sure and might even try extending our trip going Israel. Of course, we will be doing it through Booking Jordan once again.
