There are not enough descriptive words to describe our fantastic day trip to the Lost City of Petra and The Wadi Rum!
Our driver Abraham picked us up from our ship at 7am and drove us to Petra. He was an excellent driver and his car was air conditioned, clean and comfortable.
Mohamed, our guide in Petra was spoke excellent English and knew the history of the city.
At 1pm we had a delicious traditional Jordanian lunch at the Sandstone Restaurant included in our tour price. The service was excellent. Very friendly.
On our drive to the Wadi Rum, Abraham purchased a full watermelon from a roadside seller which we all shared during a break in the Wadi. He also shared his Arabian coffee with u
On arrival at the Wadi Rum, we transferred into the back of a covered 4x4 which was great fun.
Our young Bedouin driver was excellent driver and the scenery was spectacular.
Before leaving the Wadi for the drive back to the ship, we visited a Bedouin camp for tea and friendship.
We returned to our ship just after 7pm.
Everyone we came in contact with was extremely friendly, gracious and patient. We were never rushed. I can not recommend Jordan Daily tours highly enough. Thank You for the memories we will always cherish.

We are on a world cruise and one of the ports of call was Jordan. We arrange a day tour through Jordan Daily Tours to Petra and Wadi Rum. We were a little bit apprehensive as people on the cruise had mainly booked on a ship excursion and thought it was risky doing a private tour. Well we couldn’t be happier. It was lovely not to be in a big tour group and we were able to enjoy both Petra and Wadi Rum at our own pace. The tour guides couldn’t do enough for us and were both helpful and gracious. Lunch was included and we are at a local restaurant in Petra before continuing on to Wadi Rum. The food was all home made and delicious and even though we were late meeting our guide he was very patient and didn’t try to hurry us along. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour operator.

Well what a superb day trip.After a smooth booking process from our home in New Zealand 4 of us arrived on the cruise ship Sapphire Princess on 15 April.We were picked up as soon as ship berthed and managed to avoid all the mad rush of bus tours.We were first to souvenir,nibbles and toilet stop and then continued to be first all day at the places we visited including lunch.We had a superb guide at Petra who was an archeologist from there so was very knowledgable and advised us really well to get a horse and cart to the Treasury and then walk and horse and cart back to lunch.This was very sound advice as very long way to walk and we had to get to Wadi Rum as well.Was excellent going through Petra and was so busy with all the bus guests as we went out for our trip to Wadi Rum...we were so pleased we were not amongest them.Friends of ours had chosen to do the ship bus trip and we passed them walking down to the Treasury on our way out and they were surprised.We then had a HUGE superb lunch and then off to Wadi Rum.The pick up vehicle was awesome and both our guide and the pick up driver/ guide were fabulous and so helpful.We had a great tour also of Wadi Rum and not a sole anywhere near us so it was like we were on our own in the desert!!!We all had an amazing trip and from booking to getting dropped off could not fault anything.Also for your info our friends paid more than us going just to Petra via the shore excursions on ship than we did for going to both places.What was really cool for us is there is a New Zealand woman who married a Jordanian and she has a stall in Petra and she has Jordanian woman make beautiful silver jewellery (which of course we all bought a piece of it as it was beautiful and real).Her son was manning the stall that day and he did his secondary schooling here in Nelson NZ so was extra special for us.Highly highly recommend Best Shore Trips..we also used them in other ports we visited and no problems anywhere.

Absolutely amazing. Picked up from Aquaba. Our driver was great. Very good English and a great sense of humour. I think his name was Mahdi or Mohammad. Have done a lot of tours so names have slipped. Petra was amazing. Seeing the treasury was breath taking. Tour included lunch and it was fab. So much food. Then Wadi Rum. What an experience. I won't spoil the surprise of the day but it's a must see. Our driver went above and beyond. We even managed a tour around Aquaba. Highly recommend this company. Correspondence was efficient and service excellent. Five stars.

Tours were excellent. Our driver, Yazn, was excellent and communicated with all of us. He was knowledgeable. The guide at Petra (I forgot his name), was very good. took time to explain everything and the pace of walking was moderate but we saw everything. We took his advice and took the buggy ride to the bottom then walked. This saved a lot of time. Wadi Rum was very nice an amazing. The ride through there was fantastic. I would recommend this company, Jordan Best Shore Trips, to everyone. Excellent service!!!

Yes we had a fantastic day trip to Petra,

Everything was well organized from the moment we set foot of the cruise ship to the return journey, Our guide in Petra spoke excellent English and was waiting for us as soon as we arrived in Petra at 9am, telling us everything we needed to know about Petra and the surrounding area. his knowledge was first class.

Everything was on time, no waiting around, the only down side was our driver to Petra spoke very little English and so we were unable to converse with him going and returning to Aqaba, about Jordan and the landscape as much as we would have liked, but apart from that it was an EXCELLENT tour......5 Star.

Thanks for a great trip

Thanks to Joseph & his partner, 12 of us onboard Nautica had a wonderful day in Petra. Although most of us had been in Petra before, we saw way more this time. Many of us even managed the hike up to the Monastery.
Thanks Jordan Shore Trips for making our trip the best ever!!

We took the Petra trip from from our cruise ship in Aqaba. Best Shore Trips had such good prices for the trip that I was a little concerned it might be too good to be true. Considering the positive reviews, we decided to go with them and we were NOT disappointed.

We were met at the port, right off the ship and led to a very nice van with with cool AC, separate controls for those of us in the back, and plenty of room for the six of us. Our driver, Issa, was absolutely fantastic! He had water, juice, and candy for us and the additional treat of free Wi-fi to enjoy during the ride. He was a very good, safe driver. We had one passenger with limited mobility. She sat in front with Issa and he wrote her name in Arabic for her, prompting the rest of us to ask for the same thing.

Our handicapped passenger had trouble getting back to the car because of the wait for a carriage ride back to the top. This caused us to be much later getting back to the van then the time we had arranged with Issa. He never complained or gave any indication that we were putting him out.

We have nothing but good things to say about Best Shore Trips and their service and especially Issa!!

Booked a shore excursion to Dead Sea and we got a maniac driver 120-140 kmh on two lane roads, passing everything on hills and no passing zones. When I booked this trip I told them I had a handicap scooter, they said OK and never mentioned the 300 steps to the Dead Seashore, and the 5 star spa we were taken to was a public beach/spa and was old and rundown. The shore excursion from the ship went to a real 5 star hotel/resort/spa. We couldn't go down 300 steps, so never got to swim in the Dead Sea, all we got was a hell driver for 3 hrs up and 3 hours down. When I paid the driver, he even asked for a tip. What a waste of money this was, never use this tour company!

To our friends in Jordan

We had the best tour to Petra with Jordan Shore Trips, we were collected at the Port at the agreed time and our driver to Petra was excellent and  spoke very good English and was able to answer any question we had along the way. Once we arrived at Petra we then met with our guide who took us places that a lot of other tourists didn't go to. It is well worth while spending the little extra for the lunch as this was remarkable.

I would recommend Jordan Shore Trips to anyone visiting Jordan.
