We will have lots of time in Petra to photograph the valley on our own. Many of the other places will have free times for photography. Steve and I built in a free day up front to get over jet lag. You do not need to take the extra day if you dont' want to. You can discuss that with the travel agent.
Again, any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me or Wildland Adventure Tours for more details of the trip. We do have guides but this is not a photography workshop so there will not be a photographer to help you with photo's. This will be an amazing trip. (Especially Petra and Wadi Rum.) Come join us if you can.
