Great trip

The arrangements worked perfectly and all the drivers and guides were punctual and polite. Our driver for the first two days spoke limited English and his car was dirty and smelt of old cigarettes but when we told Mohammed from your local partners after he had asked our opinion of our holiday, he arranged for us to have an additional walking tour of Amman on our last night and treated us to dinner! Unexpected and very much appreciated. One thing which could have been made clear in advance was that at the desert camp ( Rayahed) very loud club-style music was played after dinner until 9.00 pm in the only indoor seating area. It was impossible to hold a conversation or to quietly read and it was just as noisy if one went back to the tent. Also there was no heating or carpet in the tent so it was very cold at night. I think that visitors should be given a choice of camps - obviously the loud music would appeal to some people but we found it very intrusive. Apart from that, it was an amazing trip and we will certainly be looking at Travel Local for our holidays in future.
