I had a great experience booking this tour with R&H Bib Transportation and Mr. Mohammed Al Na’Na. Mohammed picked me up on time at 6:00 AM like it said on the page, from there we went straight to Petra, his driving skills are excellent, drives very careful and makes sure that you’re comfortable, the car is nice and comfortable too, with air conditioner, he dropped me outside of Petra and waited for me for around 3 hours until I finished exploring Petra, after that he took me to Wadi Rum, where a Jeep was waiting for me to explore Wadi Rum, I was there for around 2 hours, he also gave me some refreshments, if you have little time like a day this tour is excellent to explore Petra and Wadi Rum in short time, they also have other tours where you can stay days with them and explore more of Jordan, I recommend this tour to everyone, thank you again.

The super friendly driver, from the day before he contacted me by whatsapp to agree, at 6 o'clock we met and super punctual, from Amman we went to Petra, with one stop in a typical Jordanian cafeteria, and he invited me a good coffee! Great gesture, in Petra he gave me about 4 or 5 hours off, I traveled a part on horseback and the rest on foot, then we went for typical food, in a very good restaurant. He offered me the option of going to Wadi Rum, he showed me photos and everything that was included and I was encouraged. The best decision in the world! The incredible sunrise as well as the sunset, the spectacular buffet dinner with a show of how they take the food. A sisha and perfect starry night! The next day we had breakfast and he took me back to Amman! His name is Mohammed Alnana! Great experience.

Petra is amazing!! You have all day, utilize as much time as possible (at least 4-6 hours to get all the way to the end monastery). The driver was great, felt safe on the way over, provided water as it was very very hot! There is so much history and culture, and you definitely want as much time as possible there! The driver and company was also very responsive. Thank you!

This’s been something unique, something magnificent, something unbelievable….another dimension of life

Punctual driver, high driving culture, very willing to help, I recommend it to everyone.
