ITINERARY CHANGE IN 2019:
In 2019 the Jordan section of this trip will change order slightly. Previously Day 13 was spent in Aqaba, and Day 14 in Wadi Rum. In 2019 we will go directly to Wadi Rum from Amman. This small change has been made in order to maximise our time in Wadi Rum. There are no changes to the included activities.
