What people are saying about Amman

The 3 day 2 night tour is a great way to have a worry-free experience at all the key sights in Jordan. Everything was well planned and executed and expectations were set very clearly by the tour company, so we knew exactly what we were signing up for (would suggest reading the helpful details before booking). We purchased the Jordan pass as suggested and saved substantially on visa and entrance fees. Special shout out to our driver Ahmed, who was kind, respectful, punctual, and helped us customize each of the three days to our liking. As clearly communicated on the booking description, a basic level of English and facilitation can be expected of the driver, but we would suggest not expecting the driver to be a fully English-fluent local guide. This was perfect for our travel style since we like to explore quickly and extensively on our own at each site, with Ahmed masterfully handling all of the transport and logistics between stops and hotels. He even went above and beyond to order

Absolutely amazing experience, we would definitely recommend. We were a group of 6 people with our awesome guide Jafar (also famously known across the globe as Mr see you tomorrow!!). Jafar made the experience 100 times better with his humour, knowledge and kindness! Best guide we had. The tour started early in the morning - by about 10-11 am we were in Petra with 5 hours free to walk around the sights. This requires a certain amount of fitness and appropriate shoes and clothing. Then we headed to wadi rum just before sunset (again amazing). We had about an hour free time before dinner (delicious jordanian food). The next day we had breakfast at the camp, then 2 hours on the jeeps around the desert and then on our way to the Red and Dead sea. Beware that when we went they would only allow us to be 2 meters from the shore, claiming the beach is closed (but they had a sign it was open). Ladies also take toilet tissue with you as in a lot of the toilet stops we did there was no tissue.

We went to 2 and we spent an exceptional weekend. Everything was as described when subscribing to the stay. A weekend without any pitfalls with a lot of joy and pleasure. Special mention to Qutaibeh our guide, who was great both in terms of tourism and human. I highly recommend!

Amazing experience. Magnificent locations, truly memorable and a must see and experience for everyone.

Wonderful experience. Mohamed was a excelent guide
