Review for: Heritage of the Holy Land & Jordan

Recently went to Jordan and Israel. Feedback from our trip: Dakkak Tours was excellent. V safe and seemless transfers. Highly recommended. Corp Amman - very modern facility. Excellent food and staff. Pity about being next to a very busy intersection 7.5/10. Disco night on last night didn’t help. Petra Panorama- slightly outdated and out of town. Food was ok. Great views. Best sleep though as it was very quiet! 6.5/10 Orchid Reef Eilat - excellent, faultless, best breakfast I have ever had anywhere in the world! Just next to a couple of loud bars but they stopped at around 6pm. Not connected to hotel. Real estate there is tight. Hence close proximity. Glad I was outside of town. 8/10 Jerusalem Gate - terrible! Wish I stayed closer to old city. Very budget, not 4 star by a Mile. Maybe 2.5. Traffic very bad as next to a very large junction and vehicles honked all night. 2/10. No redeeming factors except free parking. Rooms very dirty. Had to move. Wish I read the reviews..... Vital Hotel Tel Aviv - brilliant, sad only one night. Wish I stayed closer to the beach as hotel situated next to a hospital for visiting relatives. 9/10. All in, great trip. More in depth reviews are on Trip Advisor.

Fantastic Trip

Review for: From Pharaohs to Prophets

Took a trip with Sun Island to Egypt, Jordan and Israel last year. Had a fantastic experience and loved every moment of it. Was set to go on another trip in 2020, but borders closed. Hopefully can travel to Europe in 2022 with them.
