    Description

    After several years working with tourists in the beautiful desert of Wadi Rum in Jordan, I've got a big experience as a guide.

    My name is Atayek Hamad, from the tribe of Zalabieh and i grew up in the desert where my parents are still living in.

    I am very proud of my bedouin culture and I like to share it with the foreigners who are going to visit my area.

    Very good driver, well experimented as trekking guide, I speak and understand english good enough and I want to communicate my passion of the desert to the others.

    I know many beautiful places where you can contemplate the red landscape of Wadi Rum, on the top of the highest mountains of the place for example. I will show you the tracks of animal drawings on the sand, I will tell you about our wild bedouin life here, I will lead you through unknown canyons and roads. We will share together the pleasure of being in such an amazing place.

    You can decide to sleep under a bedouin tent in a camp, or outside in the moonlight, you can decide if you prefere to visit Wadi Rum by jeep or by feet, I will adapt my tour to everyone, because each one has his own rythm, each one have different wishes.

    I am sure you'll spend an unforgetable moment with us in our desert.
