No. We were planning to go with them this year but we could not get together on dates. Might try and squeeze it in next year. 

It's pretty much perfect if you like beautiful weather, picturesque views, chilled out vibes, warm sea, fantastic food, great local drinks, incredible turkish baths, friendly locals, great service and brilliant trips.  Nearly all at reasonable/cheap prices.

Main problem we've found is that hard to find anywhere else to go that ticks all the boxes.

Went to Kalkan for the last 2 Summers but thought we'd try somewhere else this year. Just booked again for next Summer, a year without going is more than enough. If anyone is heading that way, Turkish Airlines now do direct flights from Gatwick to Dalaman at good times too. They were also flying from Stanstead, but with a partner airline. Will hopefully watch us play our first match in the Prem on TV there.

We were supposed to be going to Jordan and Israel this Summer. Managed to move the flights for free to next Easter so fingers crossed for that. Probably works out better at Easter as won't be so hot, and can fly to Aqaba in Jordan at Easter.

I've always wanted to go to Petra but imagined it would cost huge amounts of money. You could probably do it for a long weekend now and for a similar price as it you were going to visit a Western European city. Just hope Easyjet keep flying there.

Anyone got any good tips for Jordan, especially for getting transport to Petra/Wadi Rum/Elat border? Or for car hire in Israel at the border.

I've been to Israel once before and loved it. Going to Dead Sea, Massada, Jerusalem and Tiberias, before staying with friends for a few days. Great place to visit if you wanna go somewhere a bit different.

Jerash near Amman is good but not worth the drive from the south if you're flying to aqaba rather than Amman. I quite liked Amman too. 

Petra was about £50 entry when I went a few years back(7/8 years?) so I assume it's more than that now. I think it was even more if you hadn't been in the country for so many hours prior to going in (in order to fleece cruise passengers and day trippers). 

Didn't actually think you got much for the money in terms of guide to the site and the signage/info boards were quite basic so maybe make sure you've got some guidebook or something to make the experience a bit better.
