50% awful trip!
Being disabled, I made a simple request to have a seat on the driver's side of the coach so that I could stretch my right leg but although I was assured by Joseph that this would happen, it was not arranged so all the way to Jerusalem, I was in an awful lot of pain.
There was a man called Simona who put us on the coach to Jerusalem. He was very rude and all the time was shouting at us to hurry up which is impossible for me on crutches. He also shouted at us when we got to Elat before we went to Jordan. His attitude was disgusting!
Our guide for Jerusalem was terrible. Really, really bad. He didn't even say his name and he left our group so many times, did not explain things and did not tell us what we were doing. He was awful.
There was a small group of 8 of us who were English speakers whilst the rest of the group were Russian. So much time was wasted by them constantly shopping that we missed out on a lot of Jerusalem, only had 20 minutes for lunch and only had an hour at the Dead Sea. Whenever the coach group was told we had a 20 minute break, the Russians took an hour and a half which completely wasted our time.
When we got to Jordan, everything was so different. The driver was brilliant, the welcome host, Hussein Al Abbadi for Al - Jawad Tours was fantastic and explained very well all the times we would be doing things the next day.
The next morning, we met our guide, Ihab and he was brilliant. He explained everything to us on our way to Petra and also when we were in Petra. We were very, very happy with him. He made our day in Petra fantastic.
We are very happy with our day in Petra but very disappointed about the coach to, and our day in Jerusalem. It was awful!
Having previously booked a Bedouin dinner with King Safari which was a disaster as the jeep driver crashed due to stupidity injuring both myself and my partner, we were very wary about our Jerusalem and Petra trip but Joseph reassured us it would be good. He was so wrong. We have complained to him about the Jerusalem and Petra trip but as yet, a week later, he has not had the decency to reply to us.
Do not book trips with King Safari. Book through your hotel or choose another tour company.
