The 3 day 2 night tour is a great way to have a worry-free experience at all the key sights in Jordan. Everything was well planned and executed and expectations were set very clearly by the tour company, so we knew exactly what we were signing up for (would suggest reading the helpful details before booking). We purchased the Jordan pass as suggested and saved substantially on visa and entrance fees. Special shout out to our driver Ahmed, who was kind, respectful, punctual, and helped us customize each of the three days to our liking. As clearly communicated on the booking description, a basic level of English and facilitation can be expected of the driver, but we would suggest not expecting the driver to be a fully English-fluent local guide. This was perfect for our travel style since we like to explore quickly and extensively on our own at each site, with Ahmed masterfully handling all of the transport and logistics between stops and hotels. He even went above and beyond to order

The driver was super hospitable and friendly, took us from our hotel and waited for us, also super knowledgeable about the history of the country, we do recommend this beautiful tour. The car was very clean and super comfy.

Great experience. Beautiful place. Punctual driver and comfortable car

Would recommend this, but it's on the expensive side

Wonderful experience. Mohamed was a excelent guide
