    Great way to see all the highlights of Jordan! Highly recommend. Our driver Murad was very helpful and caring- ensured we had a good experience and was helpful in recommending places to eat and arranging a tour guide for Petra! Thank you so much- we had a wonderful time and you have a beautiful country.

    We booked an overnight tour and we didnt regret! Atalla is a really nice guy, he cooked very good traditional food for us. The dessert is incredible, we feels like we are on Mars. Atalla sang traditional beduin songs it was amazing! Thank you Atalla for this unforgetable experience! We hope we will see you again!

    There is only one way to start this review and that is say we had the best tour guide and driver, Ahmed! He was always on time. He was always pleasant and knowledgeable. And he was open to discuss his culture and religion. It made this trip of a lifetime a 5 star experience. I'm not overstating this at all. We left Jordan, feeling we had a new friend and greater understanding of the Middle East. This is the gift of travel at its best. Tim

    Very long drive from Tel Aviv. Comfortable bus with frequent stops. Drive thru Jordan desert was spectacular. Petra was as advertized -------a world renoun site. Much larger than I expected. having a quide really helped understand everything. Wrap up visit to Petra with a very interesting dinner.

    We had five days traveling in Jordan with the help of Mohammad who organised everything. The places were amazing and the management of the trip was great. He was always very responsive and very easy to interact. We highly recommend it. We had a driver- mashhour who was wonderful and helped us with some issues we had during the travel (one of the kids didn’t feel well).

    The whole trip was amazing. The driver Oqbah picked me up at 6am at my hotel in Amman. He made me feel really safe (I was traveling solo), told me everything about Jordan and we also joked a lot. The guide in Petra was also great, he told me everything and more about it. Petra is a wonder. The food in Wadi Musa was great. Then we went to Wadi Rum where a jeep driver took over. Wadi Rum is also a marvel.
    Thanks Oqbah for a great experience.

    Great way to get around the city and to see the highlights. I did this solo but was good to have the company of the driver. I recommend this for anyone who wants to see the best parts of the city within a few hours.

    We spent two wonderful days and two nights with Yossef (The King of the Desert) in Wadi-Rum. He showed us many Highlights and gave us the time we wanted to enjoy the landscapes. In addition, the "couch" on the roof of his Toyota remains an added value. The tented camp is small and therefore not very crowded, which was important to us. Alessio & Wally

    First trip to Petra and couldn't fault the experience. The driver was on time, very polite and told me that if i needed to stop at any time for food/drinks etc it would not be a problem. The guide i had waiting for me spoke perfect english, was very informative and never seemed to try and rush me. He also gave alot of insight such as the history, the meaning behind certain parts and what other routes i could take on my way back that would not be too long.
    Is a great place to visit but be warned, there will be ALOT of people trying to sell you goods such as clothing, jewels, donkey rides and to guide people on non approved paths etc
    I was told just to say "no thank you" and that seemed to work

    This was a day we looked forward to and the company, guide, and drivers did not let us down. We were a party of 4 and had planned a day to see both Petra and Wadi Rum. Making reservations online was very easy and the company was very responsive to all of my questions prior to scheduling the day long tour. We were met right as the instructions said at the port and met our driver Youssef who drove us to Petra. He was very good about telling us about his country and things we saw along the way. Our ship was delayed with disembarking so Youssef made a point about staying on schedule. No problem for us. He was a delight and a very competent guide/driver. We stopped at a overlook of the valley and saw some stunning scenery - the entire day was filled with spectacular and stunning scenery - but we were up in the mountains and it was windy and chilly. Of course we shopped there and the people there were very helpful and so friendly. We then moved on to met our guide Moath at Petra and another delightful, competent guide with a lot of enthusiasm for the site. When you have a guide who is enthusiastic about the sites it really adds to the enjoyment during the tour. We found this to be the case the entire day - friendly, enthusiastic, professional guides. The best money we spent on our trip was here in Petra where we hired an electric golf cart to take us through Petra. They say the walk in is not that bad but we found the trail steeper and more slippery than we had heard so the cart really made our visit very efficient with no wasted time. It takes an hour to walk back up to the entrance so the cart saved us a lot of wasted time plus saved our sore legs! Our golf cart driver was very good about stopping so we could get off and talk about different things with Moath. Did I tell you Moath was the best guide ever? So enthusiastic, knowledgeable and made sure we saw everything! By renting the golf cart, we got to see the entire site down to the end so we really felt it was a special visit for us and we saw everything we wanted to see other than that trek of 860+ steps up to the monastery. No way we could have even attempted it given the day’s busy schedule. So if you book this tour, request Moath. You will not be disappointed. He’s that good and very friendly, enthusiastic and so knowledgeable.

    We opted to have our lunch upgraded at the Movenpick Hotel and so glad we did that! The buffet was absolutely delicious and what a spread! Plus the hotel itself is beautiful and staff there are very accommodating. It was a nice break in the day.

    Following lunch Youssef was right on time to move us on to our Wadi Rum visit. We saw the 7 pillars, camels, sand dunes, rock bridges, and had a great drive through the Wadi Rum in the back of a pickup truck, the way to really enjoy the vista. When in Rome......We were amazed at the beautiful dessert and how the colors changed with the changing sun.

    We stopped on our way back to the port for coffee and tea from Youssef and I splurged on one of those uniquely Bedouin decorated ostrich eggs. A great souvenir of a great country, visit and wonderfully delightful people. You will not be disappointed booking with this company and I recommend booking a private tour. The best personal attention for the entire day.

    Starting at 2:50am was a bit hard but arriving 9:30 pm earlier than expected.
    Ferry from Taba to Akaba, Jordan was comfortable and fresh.
    Restaurant for lunch was good.
    Full-day tour saved my time.

    For me things went very well. We entered the site at 11.30 and stayed till 16:15.
    Enough time to see the monastery. I was surprised on how many people were saying the road till there is difficult and maybe it is worth going on mule.... The road till the monastery it is more than OK for average fit people. even children can make it.... sincerely.
    I would not recommend to take the ride with an animal because it is dangerous, they tend to walk on the edge ... and it is plain animal cruelty the way they are treated and I never seen anyone giving water or food to any of very many donkeys that I saw there…
    Even now it was ok, I think it has to do a lot with the fact it is extra season. I can totally see how in high season a lot of delays can be added and I totally believe the people who said they arrived in Petra at 13.30…
    I believe that the company it is doing they best but there are things that can definitely be improved. people were very nice and tried being helpful. The lunch made laugh a little.
    Even if you arrive late at Petra enjoy what you can. it is breathtaking.

    The communication with the company was great from the beginning. Everything was answered patiently and we were totally satisfied. Then came the driver, he was d best I can ever imagine, his name was Qutaiba. Even though we were always late, he had the patience to wait and to bother us for 6 days. Also he is a very good human being, took exceptional care about us. If you have the chance, ask for Qutaiba. Finally about the tour. The itinerary covers everything from north to south with ample time to visit all the important places. To top it up, we spent around 7 hours in Petra.
