DAY 10: Fly out
Depart from Queen Alia International Airport home or to your next destination.
“If you want to experience things that most tourists don’t in regular tours, then this is the way to go! But if you also want to live it up for a day or so and stay in a nice hotel by the Dead Sea, then Engaging Cultures Travel can arrange that for you, as well. I’ve tried different travel agencies in different parts of the world and this tops it, hands down! The staff are so friendly and accommodating and will do their best for you.”
