Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

An unforgettable day in the Arabian desert awaits, as you join your fellow passengers and guide for a motorcoach ride from Aqaba pier to the sprawling red-sand Wadi Rum desert valley. Fresh-water springs made Wadi Rum a meeting center for caravans heading towards Syria and Palestine, and it was also the stunning backdrop used in the 1962 film, 'Lawrence of Arabia'. The first part of your five-hour tour is by motorcoach, but on arrival at the desert you will transfer to a four-wheel vehicle for a fun two hour drive through the reserve. View the Seven Pillars of Wisdom Mountain, and the Desert Jebels and Inscriptions, awe-inspiring sandstone rock formations that rise from the Wadi floor. Enjoy a unique rest stop at Captain's Desert Camp, where you will enjoy a traditional Arabic tea with delicacies served in a huge Bedouin tent furnished before heading back to port.

Special Notes:

You will be in the open desert for approximately two hours, a head cover and a scarf recommended, as not all 4WD vehicles will have covers. A closed walking shoe to avoid the sand getting in and bring a bottle of water. List of Sites Seen During Tour - Seven Pillars of Wisdom Mountain, and the Desert Jebels and Inscriptions
