We then took a three day tour into Jordan with same company- actually their Jordanian partner Why Jordan ?- that was nothing short... More

I had just one day to do a Petra tour from Eilat and it was absolutely worth it (although I'll add days and Wadi Rum next time). Guide Ali was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

After no hard sell but advice from the Eilat office we went for Petra and Wadi Rum with an overnight in the Bedouin camp.The organisation and care were excellent from start to finish. Petra and Wadi Rum are described elsewhere so my review is purely to praise Ecotours and especially Mohammed who guided and drove us around Wadi Rum. He... More

Amazing trip! It's so exciting to have meeting with so ancient place! We were on excursion that took all day,but I'd spend much more time if I could. Our guide was Amer Zeidan from Jordan, he was fun.

Desert Eco tours arranged a 2 day, one night trip to Petra and Wadi Rum from Eilat for my wife and I and two of our friends. They picked us up at 6:45 at our hotel in Eliat, and drove us to the border where they instructed us on how to get across. This would have been all but impossible... More

We read Douglas Duckett’s extensive guide about visiting Israel and took his advice to use Desert Eco Tours for our visit to Petra. They partner with Why Jordan for Petra destinations. We were totally satisfied. Their representative met us in the hotel lobby, drove to the border crossing and gave us instructions for crossing (we gave her $240US in cash... More

Desert Eco tours arranged a private three day, two night trip to Petra and Wadi Rum from Eilat for two of us. The hotels were excellent. Our guides, Ali and Muhammed, were charming, knowledgeable and superlative. Desert Eco Tours smoothed the way for us to cross the border in both directions. All in all, an outstanding vacation experience in a... More

We were two couples planning a 48-hour tour ahead of joining our group in Tel Aviv. We wanted to go to Petra, but very unsure of how to best arrange. Another Israeli tour operator pointed us to Desert Eco Tours, and we were off and running! Because of unique flight arrivals times (5:30 am at TLV) and the need to... More

Luckily our friends recommended we stay over night in Petra and I'm glad we did because we got to tour Wadi Rum. It was my husbands favorite part of our Israel trip. We had beautiful weather and our group was small, 5 of us. It made it very manageable. Our guide cooked us a lovely lunch out in the desert... More
