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.
Thank you Abraham Tours for our Jordan 3 day trip. We have loved the experience and certainly Petra exceeded our expectations. What an amazing place! Pictures do not do it justice. Wadi Rum is just spectacular and we are now left with memories that will be cherished forever. Our tour guide, Abdullah was friendly and very knowledgeable. Food was great and coach very comfortable. Bedouin camp standards are basic and if you are not a frequent camper you might struggle with basic facilities. There was no heaters provided in tents and during winter season this should be a standard in each tent. No hot water in the morning... No hooks or shelves to put your things on when taking a shower resulted in personal belongings getting wet. Nevertheless, Jordan is an amazing country and I would highly recommend taking this tour but pay for a hotel upgrade if you do mind basic camping standard.
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.
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.
All advertised programs fulfilled, border crossings professionally handled, adequate transportation, a truly excellent guide (Nader). No hidden costs, the Bedouin camp a great experience! We are really glad we didn’t choose a direct to Petra version, as the Jerash and Amman stops were also extremely interesting
