We were planning a destination wedding in Jordan from Australia – a unique situation to be sure! We decided to offer our guests a custom packaged 7-day tour of Jordan in addition to the wedding inside the Jerash Amphitheatre. Sue (of Spice Road Travel) and I had so many phone calls it was critical that she was in the same timezone as I was. Her connections in Jordan meant that she knew all the suppliers required to deliver. I had been warned that what you are promised is not always what you get in Jordan, but with Sue we got exactly what we expected and more. The buses were always on time and comfortable, the hotels handled the little bumps with grace and the Bedouin Whispers Camp in Wadi Rum is our new favourite spot in the world! All my fears of taking a group of 30 foreigners around Jordan at a time of turmoil in the Middle East evaporated under the care of Sue and her team. Most of us even made the climb up 800 steps to the Monastery at Petra! It is a trip that our guests will never forget.
Sue from Spice Road Travel arranged a great tailor-made short trip to Oman for me. She provided very helpful guidance and was flexible in planning the trip (that had to be done in a hurry). The local agency that Spice Road Travel works with in Oman provided flawless support, and the trip was a most enjoyable experience.
Sue helped my husband and I plan a three day trip in Oman in March 2017. We found a package tour we were interested in on her website and from there we customized it with her until we had the exact trip we were looking for. Sue was a pleasure to work with since she was so professional and helpful in all of her emails. Since we had never been to that part of the world we had a ton of questions and she was very patient in answering everything, which made us feel prepared for our trip. We had an absolutely wonderful time exploring the beauty of Oman! We cannot wait to return to the region and will be contacting Sue when we do!
If you want one of the most incredible, wonderful vacation adventures of your lifetime, then use Sue to design a tour of Jordan for you. My husband and I spent a week in Jordan with our one guide and driver seeing the most spectacular 2,000 year old ruins, Roman cities, and of course Petra and Wadi Rum. Jordan is much safer than any big city in the United States, the people are friendly and our tour was very reasonable.
Sue also arranged for our tour to continue in Israel which is another wonderful and incredibly safe country, in spite of what you hear on the news. Tourism is down right now because people are afraid to go. Go NOW, it is safe and both countries are wonderful. Sue is fantastic!
