The 3 day trip to Jordan included a city tour to Jerash and Amman, visit to Petra and jeep safari in Wadi Rum. We stayed in Bedouin camps which gave us an authentic experience to the Bedouin lifestyle and a special mention to the tea that they served. Although, it was too cold (3 degree celsius) we were provided with 4 blankets which was sufficient to protect us from the cold. We were a group of 40 people but everything was on time. I am a vegetarian, and had no difficulty finding vegetarian dishes and the buffet menu had more vegetarian dishes than non-vegetarian. Our guide Mahdi provided us details to the social and cultural aspects of Jordan, he was even open to political and economical questions. As far as the border crossing is concerned it should not be a problem unless you are carrying your passport and money for the entrance and exit to Jordan. The time provided at each stop was sufficient and we were not hurried from anywhere.
The whole experience was excellent from the very beginning, the driver Murad showed up on time and was very professional and kind, he was very aware of all needed for the experience, once we arrived to Petra we immediately met with the guide Abdulah, who was just very professional, he told the history of the place since the very beggining and explained the theories and the fundamentals for everything, he was always there for questions, we stopped at every important point to get an explanation of its meaning or use, know the facts and maybe even theorize a little bit about the reasons for some things, i was very pleased to find myself with so professional people during the whole experience, i would definetly recommend this tour and i would absolutely recommend doing it with these guys, once again, Murad and Abdulah were terrific at it, the experience was atop thanks to these guys. Bravo
My tour was an amazing view of Jordan, historical and educational! My guide Mohammed was informative and spoke great English. Wear comfy shoes and be prepared to walk a bit! A bit pricey, and can be found cheaper.
Mahdi was such a great guide. We had a great experience— it was a little colder than we expected but well worth the trip!
Fantastic tour with very good guides, the guide from Amman Bader, and the local guide Marian. Both guides are excellent
