What people are saying about Aqaba

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

Magnificent Tour, Magnificent Landscapes and Incredible and Surprising City of Petra! The Bedouin camp is amazing! Electricity and Wi-Fi and private tiled bathroom. Refectory under tent with a magnificent buffet! Crossing the Israeli-Jordanian border a little laborious but it gives you time to get to know the other companions… If you go around in winter, bring warm and waterproof clothes and a light pair of gloves because it is very cold once the sun has set… Beware also of the Bedouins who, despite their legendary sympathy, do everything to rip you off because no price is displayed… Apparently everything is fake and comes from China… to see… The 15-minute horseback ride in 20 dinars ends in 40 with a welcome tip for the Canasson…:-) After calculation, it represents almost $60 for 15 minutes… easy enough !

I am in love with Petra City and Wadi Rum! Advicing everyone to visit Jordan and experience these beautiful places. Our tour guide Mr Murad was a super experienced and helpful person!
