  • An absolute must. The Dead Sea has fascinated me for many years, and it’s an absolute must to walk into the water, feel yourself being squashed and squeezed and popped onto the surface of the water. Do the mud pack thing and enjoy the heat, it’s fabulous!” Oedevos from Belgium, June 2018
  • “Amazing and vast. The Wadi is a wonderland of shifting sands and camel caravans. You are likely to see just about anything here and be sure to hold onto your hat if you do a four wheel tour. The sand dunes and the colors are nothing short of spectacular. Grab a tour out of Aqaba and visit the Wadi.” IndySig from Indianapolis May 2018
