    This was a fantastic tour! Our guide, Rania, was very knowledgeable about every site we saw, and our driver, Mustafa, was friendly and efficient. The Bedouin camp was amazing, and the lunches we stopped for were also excellent. The only thing I would note is that you need to have 107 NIS for the Israeli exit fee and at least 60 Jordanian dinars (or US equivalent)—there is no ATM at the border as some people on our tour were told.

    We had the most amazing experience with Jordan Private Tours and its all thanks to our tour guide Mohammed Abuhamdh . If you looking for a tour that is flexible and personal and not commerially orientated I strongly recommend this tour with this guide. He went above and beyond to make our tour a personal and memorable experience . The city of Jerash is a must see. Absolute treasure to still see parts of the city remaining. Its hard to believe you have history right infront of your eyes. Thereafter we had a delicious traditional lunch thanks to Mohammed. What an experience. The food the flavour the company. Highlight of the day was Dead Sea. Here again Mohammed had his personal touch. Ensuring we had a private experience by entering private beach at a small fee to ensure the waters

    As I said in my previous review in Jordan public transportation is very bad. This trip was a bit expensive but organisation was great. The driver picked us up at our hotel and than we visited roman theatre, amman citadel, jordan museum, private car museum and mosque. In the end he brought us back to our hotel. After Jordan museum we went for lunch ,but its up to you when you want to have it. Lunch was delicious, but you have to pay for drinks. Your driver is arranging everything for you. All the time he gave us tickets and let us go. He was waiting for us in the front in car and he said we can come whener we finish,which was super nice cause we had time for everything and we really enjoyed this tour.
