Group tour of Jordan/Israel, please critic

Jump to last reply

I am travelling solo and I am finding private packages for Jordan are too expensive for a solo traveller.

I have found a tour itinerary that is of interest and includes the sites I would like to see in Jordan. The tour also visits Israel for 4 days, I feel, the Israel portion is too rushed, but since I am in the area I would like to include israel if feasible.

Here's the itinerary, please let me you know your thoughts, the cost is $3000 with a single supplement for 11 days. The tour company is On the Go tours and I am having a hard time reviews for them.

Day 1,

Arrive Amman, transfer to hotel

Day 2,

Amman -Jerash - Umm Quas - Amman

Day 3,

Amman - Dead Sea - Petra

Day 4

Petra sightseeing

Day 5

Petra - Wadi Rum

Day 6

Wadi Rum - Madaba

Day 7

Madaba

Day 8

Madaba to Jerusalem

Day 8

Jerusalem sightseeing

Day 9

Jerusalem, Bethlehem sightseeing

Day 10

Nazarath

Day 11

Jerusalem to Amman airport.

Here's a link to a pdf file with more details about the tour,

Based on cost, is it worth going to Israel for such a short time? I do not intent to be in the region again anytime soon. If I remove Israel from the itinerary, the costs are reduced by ~$1000.

Any information fodorites can provide wil be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
