GUEST REVIEWS
Stéphanie (France) Confort + with the Dead Sea extension - May 2024

Welcoming, responsive and very attentive team.
My mare, Samira. very adapted to my level (low), also very reassuring and comfortable. My daughter was very happy with her horse too, more lively, adapted to her level and to her needs.
We really enjoyed the tea and local dishes at Wadi Rum camp, as well as the comfort. Seven wonders: very good surprise, on all levels. For the other hotels (Petra and Madaba), the buffet is nothing more, very common, but we didn't come for that. Impeccable cleanliness throughout the stay.
1st experience with cap rando: we recommend, and we will come back! well done to the local team and Ahmad in particular (. Very good choice of horses, on which the ride depends. 
Cap Rando  Services: very appreciated, for a last minute registration!
 

Sorin (France) - Comfort option - March 2023

rando cheval JordanieA ride which turns very well, under control. It is sometimes necessary to ask and clarify some details: type organization of the days / program, the transfers. If not, very nice team, very good horses. To recommend !
Very focused on safety. Nothing to say.
My horse: Amir ! A great horse, which responds to all commands without problems. Some elements of the tack can be renewed. But overall ok.
Very good meals, comfort ok. Always possibilities for improvement, as of running water, sometimes there was no cold water... so washing only with very hot water... difficult
Very nice ride, to do with your eyes closed, but keep them open for the landscapes. ! ;)
Cap Rando services: Very good follow-up, with all the details given on time and even better, having the local contact, to exchange directly. Maybe improve the website with the description of the daily rides: progressive or not. Provide information on local specificities (of the Ramadan type period, etc.).

Marine (France) - Camping option - October 2022

Very caring welcome, we had nothing to manage, only to let ourselves be carried away.
Marmoud (the guide) and Amhed (his partner) are very welcoming, caring and available. We share real beautiful moments of exchange. Marmoud perfectly manages the safety of riders.
The horses are in very good condition and the guide really takes care of them. We feel that he loves them, that he preserves them as much as possible during the week, that he takes care of them. He is very vigilant about their condition, gives them time to recover, they are well fed and pampered.
Saddle with sheepskin provided, top comfort !
We ate very well. The night under the stars is spartan, but that's exactly what you're looking for in this kind of experience !
Management of my registration by Cap Rando Cheval: Smooth follow-up, perfect travel file, nothing to complain about !
In short: A magical ride, far from everything, where only serenity reigns. A week full of meetings, discoveries, local and gourmet dishes, exchanges, laughter, sensations, freedom. We take full eyes and full heart. Happiness !
