I initially booked wanting to see Petra only, but I am very glad the tour also took us to Jaresh and Amman. The recovered past civilisation buildings are terrific, and the guide, Emad was knowledgeable, and engaging. The Bedouin camp was very different to staying in a hotel, but I liked it. Petra is terrific, and the rest of the tour was very interesting. Remember to bring Jordanian money, as there is no access to money changers or an ATM when you leave the Israel/ Jordan border.
It was amazing visiting Jordan for two days. The sites were breathtaking. Our Jordan guide Mehdi gave us a lot of information and explained everything really well. However, please keep in mind that it can take a while to enter both borders. From Israel to Jordan was okay, the other way around almost took two hours because of interrogations, passport checks and what not. I can however highly recommend taking this trip. You will not regret it!
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.
Exceptional excursion. We traveled on a very comfortable bus, with an expert, friendly and helpful guide (ask for Mahadi if you can!) And we stayed in a very well equipped Bedouin camp and warmed up despite the winter temperatures...
The tour was amazing! Highly recommended. The guide was informative, professional and fun! Both Jerash and Petra are worth a visit!
