Disappointing. Described as half day / 4 hours but in reality this was little more than 2 hours. Session got started late due to a photoshoot that was clearly over running. Participants were asked to help with the clearing up of previous session and setting up for our own session. Over the course of the session I chopped one chilli and crushed a clove of garlic. Hardly a cooking class. No recipes / methods provided. We were told these were available on the website but now I'm home and have checked this is not the case for many of the dishes offered that evening. The description states a dessert dish would be included in the lesson but this was not the case. Our hostess left us part way through the session to return to her family for the evening. We were left with a very charming Arabic lady who was very enthusiastic but had limited English. Essentially this was an expensive way to eat dinner without the added value of the described class. The transfer to and from was very efficient, comfortable and friendly. Overall though not value for money or a credible experience which was a real pity.

We booked this tour back in Feb and about a month before our trip, the airline we used changed the dates of our arrival/departure. We were devastated as we thought we wont be able to make this tour anymore as it starts on Sunday and finishes on Sunday. We have contacted Zaid Tours and they were really very helpful in rearranging everything for us to fit our new dates. They were responding to all our questions within few hours. On the arrival we were welcomed by one of the Zaid Tours employees who had our visas ready for us to ensure smooth passage though immigration. Our guide Firas was waiting for us outside and on the way to the hotel he explained our itinerary for the first day. He is so far THE BEST guide we had on all of our travels. He was very informative, answered all our questions with very good sense of humor. We were a group of 6 people - 3 different nationalities & had a great banter. Firas made sure there was not a silent moment in the car & atmosphere was always good. By end of the every day he would explain our itinerary for the next day and made sure we are happy with it. I would highly recommend to do Petra at Night & add 2 extra hours to jeep tour in Wadi Rum. We had an amazing local guide Abdullah who showed us the best spots for pics and made a yummy tea in the middle of the desert. We have also upgraded our stay in Wadi Rum to a Martian Dome which was an incredible experience. The only downside would be the variety of food in the hotels & when we stayed in Petra Corner hotel there was no water for the entire morning. I will definitely recommend Zaid Tours & specially Firas as a guide to everyone.

We absolutely loved this trip and are already planning our next trip to Jordan. Our guide, Firas was fantastic and we couldn't fault him. He treated us like family and made our trip even better. Our hotel in Amman - Mena Tyche was lovely. We had a beautiful room and made use of the pool and gym facilities. The buffet food wasn't the best quality but there was a fresh counter where you could get omelettes and pancakes for breakfast or pasta for dinner and this was great. Our hotel in Petra - Petra Corner was by far the worst hotel of our trip. We lost water on our last day in the whole hotel, the food options were very limited but tasted quite nice, and it wasn't a clean hotel. This was probably the only negative of the entire trip, but luckily we did not spend much time in this hotel. Our tent in Sun City was the highlight of our accomodation. It was glamping to the max in the most beautiful surroundings, the food was the best we had all trip and all the staff were wonderful. Our hotel in Aqaba - My hotel had very friendly staff and a lovely rooftop pool with amazing panoramic views. The activities we did were fantastic, we did plenty of extras that Firas recommended such as a Turkish Spa after our full day in Petra - this was definitely needed and a completely new experience for us but we loved it. We also did Petra by night which was a unique and beautiful experience. The 4 hour jeep tour in Wadi Rum was probably the highlight of our whole trip. The landscape was incredible and we had a lovely local guide called Abdullah who made us all tea at sunset and drove us around the dessert which he could have done with his eyes closed. A two hour trip is included in the tour but without a doubt you have to upgrade to the four hour. We did a sunrise camel ride at Wadi Rum as well which was a very enjoyable experience. In Aqaba we had a glass bottomed boat tour so we could see all the coral in the bay and that was a lovely was to enjoy the beach. The activities that were included were also amazing. We had a panoramic tour of Amman so we could see the highlights of the city and try local foods from the markets. Visiting Jerash is a must do for any history lovers as this was a whole Roman town beautifully preserved and it was full of history and such a beautiful place to visit. Floating in the dead sea was such a unique and memorable experience that you can't miss. Petra was incredible and the local tour guide was so passionate and knowledgeable. The night in Wadi Rum was unforgettable and the trip to Aqaba rounded off our trip beautifully. And there were so many more stops along our journey that I could talk your ear off about. We also had a lovely group, there were six of us and we got on like a house on fire! We made a group WhatsApp to share photos and made some great memories and friends. I would definitely use this company again (with Firas as our guide of course) and I would definitely visit Jordan again. This is the perfect one week taster for Jordan and I know you will leave wanting to come back and do so much more as it is the most beautiful and wonderful country.
