Next, head to Amman's bustling downtown to see Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic ruins set high above the city center on a driving tour.

Amazing amazing amazing! This was our second tour with Abraham tours, and I can honestly say they really exceeded my expectations ! This to Jordan was absolutely amazing!

We met at the Abraham Hostel then boarded a comfortable bus to the boarder. At the boarded you Pat your visa fees. It took like 30-45 mins for our whole group to get through, but it was actually easy! Then we boarded another bus on the Jordan side where we met our great tour guide Abdullah. Very knowledgeable guide! We headed to the city whew we visited a church in Madaba where we saw the oldest map of the this Middle Eastern region. So cool!

Then we headed to Mount Nebo where Moises showed the Israelites the promise land (at the distance). Such and special place with beautiful mosaic displays of ancient art!

After Nebo we head to eat lunch at a restaurant right around the corner from Mount Nebo, and oh my gosh! That was one of the best meals! Then we headed to see a Crusaders castle on the top of a hill and it was very impressive. Then we headed to Petra! There we stayed in a Bedouin camp. It was clean, comfortable, friendly staff, and great food!

Even tho our tour did not include Petra by night originally, our tour guide gave us the option to go see Petra by night for a small fee. We couldn’t pass that one in a life time opportunity!

Abraham tours are very organized and have excellent guides! Our driver was also great and very friendly!

I generally do not go on group tours. My wife and I like to go out on our own or hire a private guide. On this trip, the group helped make it fun and when I fell, many came to my aid with bandages, gauze, and a bit of sympathy.

Our tour began at the Abraham Hostel in Jerusalem where we boarded a very nice bus. Exiting Israel was a bit confusing, but we made it and were welcomed by our Jordanian courteous and capable driver. Our tour guide, Abdullah, warmly greeted us at the Jordanian border and with our passports in hand did everything to make the process painless.

We made two stops. One was at Mt. Nebo where the Lord gave Moses a view of the Promised Land and where Moses might be buried. The Franciscans are caretakers of the site and have proven to be wonderful custodians of the site and chapel. Standing on the mountain and looking at the green of the River Jordan valley with Dead Sea on the left and Jericho on the right was very moving.

When we arrived at Petra it was already dark. Some of the group wanted to see Petra by night and Abdullah graciously accommodated them. My wife and I were tired and instead chose sleep in one of the comfortable tents at the Bedouin Camp. It is in a stunning setting and our tent was what we expected, rustic yet comfortable (well except for the mattress.)

Walking in Petra with all the carved sandstone buildings makes you grateful that the Nabateans took the time and patience to shape the building facades, had the expertise to bring in water, and build such a magnificent place in which to live. Abdullah walked with us to the treasury then set us free to explore on our own.

I can’t say enough good things about the tour. I wanted Petra to live up to my high expectations. It did, in part, because of this tour and our guide.

Lovely tour, our guide was very friendly and we had the opportunity to explore petra by ourselves. We got to stay in the desert, we went in march and it was freezing in our cabins but there was a lot of blankets in the bed. I had one of the best meals ever in the bedouin camp.

one thing that I was sad about was not having time to visit amman as described in the itinerary and on the border to get our visa was a bit confusing/took extra time.
A bit expensive but I would recommend (this was before pandemic hit hard)

I would have given the tour an "Excellent" rating. The transfer to Jordan, the tour guide and our bus driver in Jordan were amazing - as were the buses that transported us. The Bedouin camp was very nice, the food at the restaurants - all acceptable. The return to Jerusalem from Jordan, however, was unacceptable. We were placed on a bus that was in terrible condition - including paper stuffed into the overhead vents (I am assuming this was due to leaks). We were told not to sit in certain seats due to leaks and the smell of mold clearly indicated that the leaks were an ongoing problem that had not been fixed. Abraham tours should fix this issue as it leaves a last bad impression of the tour.

What an amazing experience this trip was! I have been wanting to do this for a while and a work trip to Jerusalem gave me that kick to finally do it. Me being a planner (both professionally and as part of my OCD-ness) researched a lot of tour companies and Abraham Tours received overwhelming positive feedback. Everything was very thoughtfully planned, from pick-up time and what to expect through the border crossing, to sleeping accommodations, dining, etc. Our tour guide while in Jordan, Yazan, was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and was very patient with our group and the hundreds of questions that were asked. During the tours he gave us plenty of time to explore on our own, which was greatly appreciated. From a scale of 1 to 10, the trip itself was a 10, but Yazan made it a 15! Would definitely recommend Abraham Tours, and thank you, Yazan, for sharing your amazing country with us!

The Petra tour, was amazing!! It helped a lot to have Mahdi as our tour guide, very knowledgeable person, helpful, always explaining and pointing the sites, the meaning, talking about the customs, and history. The Bedouin camp, dinner and breakfast was incredible, cold, but it was an experience, also like to mention the person that runs the camp and the staff were great! Petra breathtaking, no words for it “Amazing place”, explanation from Mahdi fulfilled our expectations. We were there for 5 1/2 hours not enough, as Mahdi pointed out you need at least couple of days to see everything. The lunch after Petra had great falafel! The rest of the way back to Jerusalem Mahdi, gave us a great explanation of what to expect at the border.Also like to mention the “Captain “, the bus driver who did a wonderful job!😃
Thank you Mahdi for a great tour!

The tour provides a way to visiting Petra Jordan from Israel. A lot of the trip is travelling to and from Petra as it is quite a distance from Jerusalem. On the way there are stops at Mount Nebo, Madaba and Kerak. Most of the side visits are of limited interest, but offers a way to break up the trip. The overnight camp is great, although there were some issues with sufficient hot water after we arrived quite late, but had a great buffet dinner. Petra is a must see and really the jewel of Jordan, and so a visit from Israel is a way to see this without a dedicated trip to Jordan. Petra is a must see and the trip works really well, and so if you have the time it is well worth the effort. Petra is just magnificent. A bit of patience is required on the boarder crossing as this can be quite time consuming with the process to leave Israel and enter Jordan and vice versa.

Well organized, unique experience. We loved the Beduin Camp- very unique, great atmosphere,friendly. I liked that we started early morning to see Petra- we beat t crowds and it was still cool. This tour gave us plenty of time to explore Petra’s large area. We spent about 6 hours leisurely taking it all in.

We had a blast with this tour of Jordan! Not only do you get plenty of time to explore Petra, you also get to see and meet a lot of friendly Jordanian people as you eat at local spots and visit some important archeological sites in the country. You definitely get more than what you pay for. Also, our tour guide Mahdi was great! He paced everything perfectly, shared lots of valuable facts about Jordan, and had an answer for every question :)

The guide, the meals, the overnight camping were all top notch....was glad I went with the main tour Abraham. Was good value for money I thought.

I personally think if you have time do 3 days so you get to have a fuller day in Petra and try to do the night lights at Petra too .... hiking up to the Monastery is something you want to get to do for sure!!

Our tour guide Wally was absolutely amazing!!!!! These places really will take your breath away
