I loved my tour and Hazem was an excellent driver / guide. He was courteous, kind, informative, funny, and flexible, and I very much enjoyed the drive because of his hospitality.

I would recommend Jordan Private Tours, and him especially, to anyone visiting Jordan who wants an easy and efficient way to visit more than one site in one day.

We had a wonderful trip today with Hani to Umm Qais, Ajloun Castle, and Jerash, which were absolutely stunning. Hani was well organised, helpful, and generous, with lots of extra information on the sites we visited, and as we drove through the astonishing views. He also managed to bring us to Pella en route, and used his experience to arrange for us to be able to go inside to take in the view - all at no extra cost to time nor money. Hani let us take our time in each site, but was delightful to be back in the car with afterwards. An excellent trip - thoroughly recommended.

Very fun day trip with some nice views in Ajloun and Umm Qais. The Jerash ruins are also very impressive and well preserved. I'd still recommend you start with the Petra/Wadi Rum/Dead Sea trip but this is definitely a fine second choice. The driver Mohammad was very friendly and entertaining, and we got a chance to try the famous Jordanian Mansef for lunch. Highly recommended!

My partner and I had a quick visit to Jordan and I chose this company for all three tours we did. I hired a driver from the company who drove us to specific sites in Northern Jordan. Umm Quais was amazing in terms of Roman antiquities and buildings. My partner and I thought the preservation of the town was amazing, however, our socks were knocked off by Jerash. We both felt that by visiting Umm Quais first and Jerash second, we were able to really absorb the wonderful ruins of 2 Roman settlements. Zakeria took us for lunch at a local restaurant in Jerash - the food was really good and good value. Because my partner and I took so long at Umm Quais we didn't make it to Ajloun Castle. However, really enjoyed our day. Zakeria drove us competently throughout. He is friendly, companionable and not a gabbler. He shares history and knowledge without prompting and will answer questions where he can. Otherwise he is happy to drive in companionable silence whilst my partner and I absorbed the scenery whilst driving.

Our driver and guide was a former member of the King's security detail, and he was most enjoyable to visit with. He modified the tour a little bit, deleting Umm Qais and adding other visits, which was absolutely fine with us. He accommodated us in every way, making sure our needs were fulfilled. We were not rushed at any of the sites, and we had a great day. The one-day adventure went-off without a hitch!

My mum speaks Spanish so I requested a Spanish speaking guide. My surprise was that the driver and guide speak Spanish: the driver lived in Mexico and the guide in Cuba. Their Spanish was very clear and advanced. Both made us felt very safe and at home. We were able to make jokes and comments about our home country, Mexico, as if we were talking with a local. The guide is historian, very professional and knowledgeable so his explanations were very comprehensive, super high level. On top of this, they were always on time and they even took us for lunch to a restaurant popular among locals, amazing food! I highly recommend Jordan Private Tours and Travel as quality is their signature. You will not regret booking your tours with this agency; top of the top!

Highly recommended!!!
I took this one day tour with Ahmad as driver, he was extremely professional, friendly and personable. He informed me about the sites before we arrived (average time to see the highlights, cost etc.), bought me falafel and coffee (yum!), was informative regarding all of my questions about Jordan and was fun too. He knew all of the shortcuts to get through traffic congestion in Amman - highly appreciated!
The sites themselves are fantastic - Jerash is stunning, if you like Roman architecture / history, this will blow you away.
I never rate tours usually (and I used other tour companies during my stay in Jordan, which were fine), but Ahmad was such an exceptional guide that he totally deserves the highest praise!!!

My parents and I had a fantastic time during this trip.

Our guide arrived early at our hotel to pick us up and off we went.

Before hand, we decided that we wanted to skip Umm Qais so we could spend more time in Jerash- we communicated that to our driver and he was very understanding and flexible which was great.

You are ultimately paying for someone to drive you from point A to point B which is exactly what we wanted. The guide/driver is very knowledgeable of Jordanian history so we would ask questions during the car ride but the guide does not go with you into the sights. Each location has either pamphlets or signage with detailed history lessons which brings each place to life. We chose not to get a guide within the site and read the pamphlets/signage which was perfect for us. As mentioned our guide was great and flexible, at each site he would tell us the direction to go and where he would be waiting when we where done. He never gave us a time to be back at the car, just insisted that we enjoy.

Can't thank you enough for a wonderful trip.
