Ihab was such an amazing tour guide. He arranged the transportation and was very familiar with the directions. He helped us navigate language barriers while we were in Jordan. He gave us a first-hand view of the local life in each destination, helped us experience an authentic slice of every town and city, learn historical and political background of the country, get discounts and exceptional value for money, sample delicious local cuisine, and gain access to places and curated experiences. One of the friendliest and cheerful tour guides I have ever met. He managed our tour time efficiently. Weeks before the tour he was promptly responding to our queries over e-mail, and even gave solutions to our travel needs and inquiries. The schedule was also flexible to what we wanted to do and see in Jordan. He had a great time too and was also genuinely enjoying our company. Will definitely recommend him and this tour! It gave us such a memorable time in Jordan. Thanks, Ihab! God bless you! :)

Safwat was a very friendly and professional driver. He gave us great tips to get the best out of our visit to Petra. He also offered us cold water and juice. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone who wants to enjoy Jordan. Thank you so much for the great day and see you again!!

I loved the whole experience. The driver/guide was amazing. He was giving us wonderful explanations along the way. The tent in the desert was also really nice. I chose the deluxe tent and the room was comfortable. All the meals included were local and really tasty. In doubt, book this tour!

Wonderful. We walked from little Petra to Petra - a little bit longer but did not have to walk in and out and arrived at the Monastry first. Fabulous walking in.

Jaffar is incredibly incredible. The tour is magnificent. The group was amazing. It’s a must to do in Jordan. See you tomorrow!
