The 3 day trip to Jordan included a city tour to Jerash and Amman, visit to Petra and jeep safari in Wadi Rum. We stayed in Bedouin camps which gave us an authentic experience to the Bedouin lifestyle and a special mention to the tea that they served. Although, it was too cold (3 degree celsius) we were provided with 4 blankets which was sufficient to protect us from the cold. We were a group of 40 people but everything was on time. I am a vegetarian, and had no difficulty finding vegetarian dishes and the buffet menu had more vegetarian dishes than non-vegetarian. Our guide Mahdi provided us details to the social and cultural aspects of Jordan, he was even open to political and economical questions. As far as the border crossing is concerned it should not be a problem unless you are carrying your passport and money for the entrance and exit to Jordan. The time provided at each stop was sufficient and we were not hurried from anywhere.
It was a fantastic trip and our guide and driver Ibrahim was exceptional! Friendly, professional, polite and really informative about the area and the places we were visiting. Ibrahim added lots of little touches ,like taking us for a delicious kunafa:) Spending the night in the Wadi Rum Desert was one of my favorite memories from the trip. Don't be affraid of cold, just take warm clothes with you. We can't thank you enough for the excellent service you provided while we were in Jordan. We are hoping to return for another trip!
This was a fantastic tour! Our guide, Rania, was very knowledgeable about every site we saw, and our driver, Mustafa, was friendly and efficient. The Bedouin camp was amazing, and the lunches we stopped for were also excellent. The only thing I would note is that you need to have 107 NIS for the Israeli exit fee and at least 60 Jordanian dinars (or US equivalent)—there is no ATM at the border as some people on our tour were told.
Basam was the best tour guide. We had a great time from the Churches in Madaba to Mount Nebo to Jordan River Baptism Site and the Dead Sea. There wasn't time in the winter after those sites to see the rest of the King's Highway.
Trip was amazing. My driver Mohammed was excellent!! He help me with everything and I felt really safe. Thank you Mohammed for lovely experience. Next time in Jorden i will take same company, hope with Mohammed on board. Marie
