In Amman, our guide met us at my hotel on time. He was knowledgable, friendly, safe, intelligent, and spoke English fairly well. He handed us over to a native Petra guide, who was able to explain the history and significance of what we were witnessing in a simple and accessible manner. He even assisted us in dealing with the persistent merchants and animal handlers who were soliciting their services. It was a fantastic day trip!

Jordan is a moderate Islamic country that is very close to west. The security is tight around hotels. Petra and Aqaba are amusing.

Excellent value and service. Our driver Murad was fabulous - first class English. Pickup at hotel early. Dead Sea hotel stop which allowed swim in the sea; and refreshing hotel swim afterwards - they had 2 or 3 pools. Waited for us for 2 hours. Then on to Kerak castle - waited for us for an hour. Some complimentary local snacks along the way. Then onto our hotel at Petra with some good tips on what to do and what to avoid. Highly recommend this service.

I signed up to take a day trip to Petra and Dead Sea, leaving from and returning to Amman. Essentially, you are just hiring a driver, since you need to pay for the entry to the sites separately (I paid the entry fee for Petra, which is about 50 JD, and the Grand East Hotel is 25 JD without dinner). My driver Qusai spoke a limited degree of English, but was immensely helpful and charismatic throughout our time together, and we used translation apps to communicate otherwise. I went over my time at Petra by about 50 minutes, but he waited for me patiently and it was not an issue. In between, we ended up driving to a lookout point to see the mountainous terrain and the Dead Sea, and later he took me to the Grand East Hotel to have a dip in the Dead Sea (Jordanian side). It was also Ramadan, so after my trip, he took me to the Grand Bazaar to have an iftar (community dinner and breaking of the fast) with people there! It was quick, but a really immersive experience. I would highly recommend it if you get the chance.

I had a great experience withe Jordan Private Tours while in Jordan. I can't say enough about how amazing our drive Khalil was. He went above and beyond to make sure our experience Jordan was a great one. We started early in the morning on our way to Petra which lasted til about 3pm. On our way back we visited the dead sea and finished the long day with dinner in Madaba. Khlalil later drove us back to the airport to finish off an amazing day. I highly recommend Jordan Private Tours if you visit Jordan.

Jordan Private Tours and Travel went out of their way to ensure we had a great trip to beautiful Jordan. Our driver, Khaled, was amazing. Our trip was tailored to us and what we wanted to see and do during our visit 7-9 January. Khaled picked us up at the airport and drove us to our hotel on the Dead Sea. He was amazing, pointing out the sites along the way and very easy to talk to about Jordan and his time living in Saudi Arabia. He dropped us at our hotel which was pretty far from the airport in Amman and then returned at 7am to drive us to Petra. We were running a little late because we wanted to go down to the beach to see the Dead Sea in the daylight. The drive to Petra was over 3 hours and Khaled kept the conversation going the entire time. He stopped at a great souvenir shop along the way. He was instrumental in finding us a private guide once we arrived at Petra and was waiting for us at the end of the day where we once again had a long ride back to our hotel on the Dead Sea. We got back to our hotel around 9 pm and needed to be picked up by 5 am to catch our 5 am flight to Egypt. Needless to say, Khaled was out front waiting for us as scheduled at 2 am with a smile on his face. Jordan is a beautiful country and we hope to return. If and when we do we will hire this same tour company and request Khaled.

I came to Jordan for a business trip and realized I have one free day from work. I then contacted Jordan Private Tours and Travel in a very short notice to see if it was possible to arrange a private tour to Petra. The reply was instant with positive answers. Mohammad, the driver, is a very nice person who speaks fluent English. He is also very knowledgeable and familiar with every single sites along the way. When I finished visiting Petra and plan to return to Amman, Mohammad made an advice to take a different road so we can see the dead sea. Even though there is an extra fee and extra time for doing that, I was very glad i took his advice. The road is very scenic. I had a very good time and have seen much more than I expected for this trip.
Overal, this is a short but pleasant trip.
