    Myself and my wife went to Jordan for our honeymoon, while in wadi rum we got a taxi to Petra, Firas Alfarajat was our driver and wow he went above and beyond!

    Our journey from wadi rum to Petra was perfect, stopping off on route for a coffee and to get pictures of the lovely scenery.

    After we explored Petra,Firas picked us up the following day to drive us to Amman, he even stopped at the Dead Sea so we could have a bath! 😄

    He even organised for his friend to take us to Amman airport on the last day of our honeymoon.

    Firas is loyal, kind and a genuine nice guy, I know if we had any problems while in Jordan Firas would be there to help us out.

    His prices are cheap and he is very reliable! Thank you Firas you made our time in Jordan extremely memorable, I hope to see you in Cyprus soon! 🎉

    Nothing is like this scenery ! The fascinating Al Khazneh is one of many spectacular Arabic Nabataean Features carved into sandstone cliffs, it is indeed a breathtaking scenery when you walk through the Siq and at the end of this passage you get a glimpse of Al-Khazneh for the first time in your life. Don’t miss it .

    It is off the beaten path and doesn't take long to walk up to the top (approximately 20 minutes straight without stopping).

    Original plan was to rent a car and travel throughout Jordan on our own (girls trip after Egypt). Wanted to add a visit to Jerusalem/Bethlehem last minute (as in day before we were arriving into Amman) and reached out to several guides for advice. Abdullah was by far the most prompt, helpful and engaging. As we discussed plans, his knowledge and expertise became more evident, and we ended up ditching the rental car altogether. He arranged everything - pickup to/from airport, guides and drivers to Amman, Jerash, Petra (EPIC!), Wadi Rum, Dead Sea … and navigating the tricky business of traveling to both Jerusalem and Palestine. Drivers waiting on each side of the border and clear communication/follow up made the entire trip seamless.

    We stayed in STUNNING hotels in addition to a Bedouin cave (yes worth the experience!) all through his connections and recommendations. In addition to stays, he accompanied us on spectacular jaw dropping hikes (according to your comfort levels), had in depth knowledge (historical, pop culture, everything!) of each site we visited, arranged amazing meals, and customized the itinerary as he started to understand our personalities and adventurous spirit.

    I’m a wanderlusty traveler (spanning luxury and hard core camping), visited over 40 countries and consider myself hard to impress. Abdullah crafted an extraordinary trip, memories we will cherish and remember forever.
    If I could give Abdullah more stars, I would! He genuinely cares about your time, safety and creating an amazing experience.

    Jordan took a piece of my heart ❤️ and I can’t wait to go back!

    We did an amazing 3 days trip to wadi rum, dana Valley and petra. Well organised trip, amazing guide, and you can see how important it was to Muhammad himself to take care for us. I would recommend it to anyone I know.

    We booked a 4 day hike in the valleys of Jordan through Belal, the coordinator of Jordan Desert Hikes. It was a fantastic and memorable experience. We visited 4 wadis, each a breath-taking paradise and so different from the others. For people who know and love the desert on the other side of the river, the abundance of water and vegetation in these desert canyons is truly amazing. Our guide on most of the trip was Ghassab, an experienced and knowledgeable guides with many interesting stories and information to share, all in perfect English. We shared a very nice and calm atmosphere throughout the trip. Ghassab and his team took care of all camping aspects, and Issam the cook made the experience also amazing from that aspect. On the first day, in Wadi Bin Hammad, we had a different guide - Odeh, who was also very professional and familiar with every aspect of the area.
    The overall organization of the trip was seamless, with English-speaking drivers taking us through the longer parts of the driving between hikes when required, and back and forth from Aqaba border. For us, the driving through different areas in Jordan was also interesting. The country is beautiful and the people friendly.
    Highly recommended

    I had a wonderful experience with PNT. I contacted them to to organize a private tour of Jordan and it was extremely easy to plan my trip with them. I selected an itinerary and asked if it could be adapted to meet my wishes and thy were quick to modify it . The booking process and payment was very easy. They called several times during my vacation to make sure that I was satisfied with everything My tour package included the visa on arrival, airport transfer, hotel, breakfast, a private driver, guides at the main sites, etc. The price was very reasonable too. My driver Tayseer was great! He was always on time, gave me tons on insightful information, made sur I was confortable and had everything I needed. The car was always clean and confortable. He drove very well and I always felt safe. Most of all, he was great company and I now consider him a friend!

    I would not hesitate to travel with PNT and Tayseer again.

    We went on a three day, all inclusive tour to Wadi Rum and Petra. We had two different tour guides, one for Wadi Rum and one for Petra. Both were excellent. The accommodations and food were top notch. Jordan Artist even came up with someone to come to our hotel and give one of us a quick Covid test so we could fly home to the US that same day. This company is professional, curteous, efficient and has great follow though.

    Our group spent 11 days in Jordan visiting Amman, Jerash, the dead sea, Petra, Wadi Rum, etc.
    Go Jordan organized everything perfectly and travelling with us, was our wonderful guide Rabea.
    He enlightened us about the rich history and culture of his country, and answered every question we had.
    Our trip wouldn't have been the same without him. He is an open and knowledgeable guide who tells great jokes and goes out of his way to provide the best care for his guests.
    Never before have I felt more immersed and in contact with the local culture and history on a holiday.
    I highly recommend Go Jordan.
    Thank you Rabea for everything!
    For the good care, the history lessons but most importantly all the laughs.

    We had an amazing trip organized by Mohammed. He took care of all the transfers within Jordan. He also arranged a dinner with local family which was a great experience. He was very understanding and helped out with last min changes or requests. Our drivers Ehab and munzar were outstanding. They went out of the way to make our trip a memorable one.

    Mahmoud is incredible. He made my journey to Jordan the best country I’ve ever been to, and this is my 19th country. He is so gentle, kind and passionate about his work. I initially thought I could plan this trip alone but I’m so glad I came to him. I was able to experience Jordan from the eyes of locals in multiple cities. He also takes incredible pics. If you visit Jordan, this is the person to ask for. I have 0 regrets. Thank you again Mahmoud.

    If you love horses and would like to ride in the mountains then I would recommend Patricia and her stables. Whatever your riding experience you will be matched with a suitable horse and the ride is adapted to your riding ability.

    I did a 3 hour ride and it was a wonderful experience in addition to my short stay in Petra. The views from the trails are stunning and I enjoyed my time in the saddle.

    Patricia and her team are friendly and very welcoming. Her stables are immaculate and her horses are loved and well cared for.

    Personally I found the cost of my ride very reasonable and worth every penny.

    If I were to return to Petra I wouldn't hesitate to book another ride and if I needed accommodation I would look to stay at Patricia's B&B.
