Wadi Rum Protected Area Reviews
The accommodation, foods and everything is good. but the tour they offered to me. As an individual traveler I expected to pay a more to go on a tour. Since I was told I’ll be with another group of 4 in the morning for camel rides, I thought the price would’ve been fare as I’m not on a one-person trip. However the camel sunrise ride was not impressive at all. Waited a bit until the guide came then we didn’t actually go to the dune to see sunrise. Just 20min ride to somewhere 1km away from the camp and 20min back. I could’ve even walked to the place in 30min with ease as it’s not dunes. I was charged a lot. When I arrived visitor center I realized I could have a camel for 6hrs for the price I paid. Not just 1hr aimless wandering.
Beautiful place. Amazing rock formations and red sand. I feel sorry we only took a 2-hour jeep ride. It is definitely worth to stay longer or better - stay overnight in the desert.
