Transportation (Middle East)

Road Conditions

Roads have generally improved over recent years, but traffic or weather conditions may extend driving times. Road conditions are known to be congested and construction work usually covers an enormous section of the road. For this reason, the timings listed in the itinerary are approximations only. There may be sections of road where the surface is comparatively bumpy, but our drivers and guides will do their best to avoid possible delays, changes or in rare cases, cancellations to sections of your itinerary.

Coaches & Seatbelts

Coaches with air conditioning are used on our group tours for city sightseeing, short excursions to the countryside and longer transfers where necessary. It may not always be possible to return to your hotel after sightseeing to freshen up before going to the restaurant for dinner due to long travelling days.

It is recommended that where seat belts are available in any destination, customers must use them and remain seated at all times whilst the vehicle is moving.

Cruise ships

Some tours may include a cruise down the Nile River. Cabins on the Nile River cruise ship will have a private bathroom and French balcony. Please note that the cruise ship and all shore excursions arranged by the cruise are on a shared basis. 


Due to Wadi Rum's remote location and difficult terrain, you will travel to and from here in a fleet of 4x4 vehicles.  Water will be provided and you will experience the thrill of venturing through the desert in an all-terrain vehicle

Domestic Flights

The flight schedule of domestic airlines in this region changes frequently, hence all domestic        flights that appear in your itinerary are always subject to change. Please ensure that all valuables and any medication you may need for the rest of the day are taken on board with you. 

The baggage limit is up to 20kg suitcase + 5kg hand luggage per passenger and bags must be locked. all seats are based on economy class. Group members may not necessarily be seated together. 

Airlines currently do not allow liquids (alcohol, spirits, wine, water, perfume, etc.) or sharp objects to be carried on-board the aircraft and these will be confiscated. Wendy Wu Tours issues all internal domestic flight tickets locally and these will be handled by your National Escort/Local Guide and given to each passenger just prior to their flight.
