What people are saying about Amman

Good, safe driver in a large, clean vehicle!

Our driver picked us up promptly at our hotel in Amman and drove us to Madaba, where we visited a beautiful church with ancient mosaics. Then we proceeded (optionally) to a "mosaic school" where we briefly watched students creating mosaics and pottery. We were offered tea or coffee. Then we were able to purchase items if we chose. We were told that proceeds benefited charitable causes. Next we were driven to Mount Nebo. Lots of history there. It was hazy in the afternoon so we did not see the "Promised Land" but the site was clean and well kept. There is a modern church there in which Mass was being held so we were respectfully quiet. There are ancient mosaics laid out on the floor of the church. Bear in mind that this tour was for transportation only. At both Madaba and Nebo there are opportunities to hire guides for a small fee. Having ridden in taxis and with other drivers in and around Amman we felt safe in the vehicle with our very courteous driver. Buy the Jordan Wanderer Pass!

Once in a Lifetime Experience - Book this tour!!!

This 2 day tour covers the best sights of Jordan: The first stop will be the Greek-Roman city of Jerash, which features an impressive Amphitheatre and a high street that is still very intact. The second stop is Amman, which is the capital of Jordan and pulsates with life, similar to Tel Aviv in Israel. In the middle of the city, you have a very old citadel that is situated on a hill overlooking the city. It's an impressive view and the best place for taking pictures in all of Amman. The night in the Beduin camp is a lot of fun and actually a core part of the experience. Don't upgrade to the hotel, it's not worth it. The food on the trip was also surprisingly good. On the second day, we visited Petra. The city is just BREATHTAKING and something that you have to see once in your lifetime. In total we spent 6 hours in Petra, which is sufficient to get a good overview. The only caveat to visiting Jordan from Israel is that you have to accept waiting times of up to 2 hours border.

Petra, Jerash and Amman: 2-Day Tour from Jerusalem Reviewed by Johannes, 05/02/2017

A memorable trip seeing wonderful architecture.

I initially booked wanting to see Petra only, but I am very glad the tour also took us to Jaresh and Amman. The recovered past civilisation buildings are terrific, and the guide, Emad was knowledgeable, and engaging. The Bedouin camp was very different to staying in a hotel, but I liked it. Petra is terrific, and the rest of the tour was very interesting. Remember to bring Jordanian money, as there is no access to money changers or an ATM when you leave the Israel/ Jordan border.

We would would highly recommend this experience.

The 3 day trip was awesome and we touched all the highlights of Jordan. From the Jordan valley to Petra, from Wadi Rum to floating on the dead sea, the three of us and our driver navigated with ease in a relaxing pace to allow us to enjoy the environment and lovely Jordanian people. We would would highly recommend this experience.

Amazing experience and outstanding service.

Thanks for the outstanding service provided by your company and the excellent driver selected Mr. Hassan Khateb. He is a very knowledgeable and respectful person and he make my trip to Petra a memorable one. I highly recommend him and your company to any of my colleagues or friends that come to Jordan for any tour.
