“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Myself and my girlfriend were recently in Aqaba, and whilst there booked 2 tours with Via Jordan, all I can say is excellent service! We booked the trips just for us as a couple, the first tour with Ashraf to Petra was amazing, he was great company all day and happily shared his knowledge on all local subjects. The tour was a full day and having our own guide meant we were given much more information than the other tours, some of which only made it to the Treasury before having to return. The second trip to Wadi Rum was with Hakam, again, he was excellent company throughout, and made sure we saw the major sights in this amazing place. Both tours were excellent, and both guides spoke excellent English and were a pleasure to spend time with. Be aware this isn't the cheapest tour to take, but in my opinion was well worth the extra money

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Thanks Via Jordan for an amazing day trip to Petra! We arrived in Aqaba on a cruise ship and had decided to go with Via Jordan as it was the same price for a private tour for four of us as it would have been to do the cruise ship's coach tour. Amazing service - our guide Hakam was very knowledgable and interesting and has lived in the US previously so his English was brilliant. At Petra, he had arranged for a guide called Ashraf who was incredible - really funny and again knowledgeable and took us further into Petra than the coach tours. After the tour of Petra, we were reunited with Hakam and taken to a wonderful restaurant for lunch, before a pleasant drive, accompanied by lots of interesting conversation, back to our cruise ship. Perfectly planned and very good value for money - especially for a private tour for four people!

“2 fantastic day trips with Via Jordan - Petra and Wadi Rum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Great planning – great company – great trips!
We were a company of 8 – adults and kids. Ashraf was our assigned guide to both Petra and Wadi Rum. With his knowledge, personality and sense of good service, he made sure we all had a good time. Unforgettable sights, memorable moments in Petra and in the desert and lots of bonus information about Jordan – the people, society and history. We absolutely recommend Via Jordan.
Everything was arranged on email before we left for our vacation, Hakam really understood our wishes.
Thanks

Perfect organisation, knows the best places in a more than excellent way - lovely lunch, in all ways a more than interesting experience with a wonderfull person. Many thanks from this Belgian family, dear Hakam ! See you soon for a next trip !

“Spectacular tour Petra-Aqaba-Wadi Rum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Our journey set us off from Amman on a trip Which took us to Petra, which practically goes without saying to be one of the new 7 wonders. Ali our Guide was always very helpful and friendly and also a good laugh always got us the best deals and made us feel extremely welcome. Later that evening we made our way to the Wadi Rum campsite which installations were remarkable. We were treated to "Mansaf" (Chicken and rice dish with goat’s milk sauce) and breakfast in the morning. The following day we visited Aqaba and did our duty free shopping. Very high standards for a very good price. If I ever return to Jordan I will definitely arrange my tours with this company.
