5 benefits of hiring a tour guide in Wadi Rum desert
Sometimes we wonder why people don’t book a tour when they visit Wadi Rum desert. Wadi Rum desert is a stunningly beautiful area. And there is so much to see and do that you easily spend a couple of days here. The only thing is, you cannot do this by yourself. Most sites are far apart, and it is not easy to find your way when you don’t know the area. Why settle for visiting only the edges of the desert by yourself when you can see so much more during a tour? We give you five benefits of hiring a tour guide that will make up for every reason to not book a trip.
#1 The 4WD car
Booking a tour means having a 4WD car. With a 4WD vehicle, you can cover a far bigger area. In Wadi Rum desert this definitely is an advantage. As the protected area is big and the sites are widespread. If you have only one or two days to visit the desert, the 4WD car enables you to see all major sites and do some hiking and scrambling on the way.
#2 Your Bedouin driver
Your Bedouin driver gives you two benefits in one. Firstly, we are born and raised here. We know the desert inside out. So, no chance you will get lost in this harsh and inhospitable place. Secondly, you can enjoy the majestic landscape while we drive. Admire the beautiful red and yellow mountains with their different shapes and curves. Look at the scattered red and yellow dunes. And notice the plants and animals that call this desert their home.
#3 The source of information
Wadi Rum desert is a unique place on earth. A place with stunningly beautiful nature, rich cultural heritage and interesting inhabitants. Our guide takes you around and tells you about the sites, the history, the culture and other things that have your interest. Which adds a lot of value and enhances your overall experience enormously.
#4 The Bedouin food and drinks
When on tour you will be provided with food and beverages during the day. You don’t have to think about how much water and which food you need to take. We take care of everything. You will be provided with three freshly prepared Bedouin meals a day. And if our guests are vegetarians or have allergies, we make the food accordingly.
#5 Your overnight stay
The unique experience you can have in Wadi Rum desert is sleeping under the stars. Have tea and dinner next to the fire in our camp or ‘cave’, watch the stars and the Milky Way and afterwards sleep in one of our comfortable tents or out in our ‘cave’.
