THESE PROGRAMMES ARE HARD GOING AND
ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR NOVICES IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW TO ABSEIL AND TO
We realise that
sometimes it is difficult for people to pay the cost of our tours, although we
still insist that we give good value.
If we have
several people wanting the same programme on the same day, we therefore
automatically take you all together and apply the cheaper price. However some of
you prefer to be alone with the guide and we ask you to state this when you make
your reservation - or in any case AT LEAST A WEEK BEFORE you arrive in Wadi Rum.
We make an extra charge of 10JD/person per day for this. During the high season
the service may not be available or the charge may be doubled. We do realise
that this charge is high, but so many people are asking for this service that we
are running short of good guides.
So unless you
are on your honeymoon or are travelling with three turbulent children, please
try not to ask us for this service during the main tourist periods.
These periods, incidentally, are March to May, and September
to November and also the two weeks including Christmas and the New Year.
We should like to make it quite clear that if you do not
arrange specifically for a private trip, it is entirely possible that you will find
yourself with others on your tour to a maximum number of 8 people.
Private tours are only "private" during the day. There are likely to be
other clients in the camp for supper and for the overnight. But there are plenty
of places to be private around our camp. It is very seldom that we have more
than a dozen people there. In fact we have found that on the whole our clients get on
very well together. You have a number of things in common:
You are nearly all not just independent travellers, but
EXPERIENCED independent travellers. You are intelligent and use the Internet
regularly; you research a country before visiting it.
Most of you have good jobs, a surprising number of you have
very interesting jobs.
Nearly all of you enjoy outdoor activities, many of you
practise a sport at home.
You are adaptable - and you expect us to be too. (Even
though we offer a large variety of programmes we still need to customize them for
nearly a quarter of you). And you enjoy meeting people and exchanging
experiences and advice.
So don't be afraid that you will find yourself in a package
However, one word of warning :
if you cannot arrive in time for our usual morning departure, that is to say
comfortably before 9.30am, we reserve the right to charge you for a "forced"
private tour. This means that the private tour surcharge would be added to
the normal charge for that day. This surcharge would also be added if you refuse
to accept any other traveller with you.
