Traveling to Jordan, Dec. 05

Our family is traveling to Jordan from Cairo on Christmas eve. We plan to travel overland to Eilat then Petra. Any warnings or advice? Has anyone used Desertecotours, based in Israel? Do you recommend the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Petra?

Hmm. You are planning to go from Egypt to Israel to Jordan? You may have some difficulties at the borders but perhaps not if you are with a tour? We crossed from Israel to Jordan and back over a two day period and got the third degree at the border. When we told them of going to Petra as tourists that did not seem to be a good enough reason for the Israelis.
I can't respond about the Crowne Plaza because we stayed at the Movenpick.
Sounds like a terrific experience.
