A great tour of the historical sites of northern Jordan. My driver was Mohammed. He was a good driver, spoke good English and was fun to talk with. The car was in good condition. I would recommend this tour because Mohammed is one of the few drivers who takes tourists all the way up to Umm Qais which is close to the border with Israel/Palestine. The site looks onto the Golan Heights and on a clear day you can see the Sea of Galilee. The roman ruins there are well worth the visit and extra drive. The second site is Ajloun castle which is compact and in a fairly good state of repair which means that you get a decent sense of what the atmosphere was like there in the past. Finally Jerash is a huge and impressive roman site. It takes at least 2hrs to walk the well preserved ruins. Its worth adding that the drive between the places on the itinerary was enjoyable in itself because the hills and valleys offer some spectacular views on the way. A great trip which I recommend!
This tour was a convenient and enjoyable way to see the Dead Sea and religious sites. My driver Khalil particularly made the experience great. As a solo female traveler who took this tour alone, he made me feel comfortable and welcomed to Jordan and treated me like his daughter. Khalil was happy to share his culture with me and teach me about Jordan. He took every opportunity to provide for me, including getting me food and water, stopping for photos, and not rushing me during activities. Khalil also helped me with two problems: I lost my sunglasses in his car, and a faulty ATM machine “ate” my card. Khalil met me the following day to return my sunglasses, and he called the bank for me to try to retrieve the card. Though it was unfortunately not able to be returned, I really appreciated his help with the issue, since I could not call in English. I am grateful to Khalil for everything he did to make my time in Jordan special. I feel that I have made a good friend here!
Nidal, our tour driver, was absolutely excellent. He was punctual, had a lovely, comfortable car and was great to talk to during the journey. Nidal drove us a few hours to Petra and then we met up with our tour guide, Shadi, who was very knowledgeable and also an excellent host. An unforgettable day - thank you very much to Nidal and Shadi for your hospitality.
My guide, Mohammed Al Na’Na was excellent. He took me out of the way to show me some interesting things I wouldn’t have on my own. He was very professional and would recommend his services.
Jaf’ar was an awesome guide, he told us many stories about Jordan and regarding the trips he did during his career. I recommend him and his company.
