Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Amman Airport Private Arrival Transfer. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The driver was very good, but we found out later a can ride from the airport was 20JD and we ended up paying $60 for the cab ride. Jordan is attempting to really promote tourism to improve their standard of living as they have no natural resources, but if they take advantage of tourists in this fashion they are going to run into trouble. People don't like being taken advantage of like this. Quite upset I didn't do my research before booking this transfer.
A little apprehensive coming to Jordan as single senior, My flight was late arriving and my luggage was lost, but my car and driver had been waiting patiently for me for over 2 hours. My driver was a very pleasant man who got me to my hotel and drove back to his office only to come back half an hour later to check that I was o k and the hotel was good. I couldn't thank him enough. Highly recommend this company for the care given to me.
We were greeted by our driver after we had picked up our luggage and cleared immigration. The driver took our luggage to the car and we were on our way to our hotel.
Great driver, waited for our late flight and stopped off on the way, very polite and helpful, thanks
Flew into Amman on time - came out of customs ... no one there to pick me up. After 15 minutes of trying to find someone who was there to pick me up, a nice woman (I think a guide) saw I was in trouble and inquired. She let me use her phone to call up the local # that Viator gave me. Viator said that they were told that the flight would be an hour late (hmm). 15 minutes later someone arrived who drove me to my hotel. The loss of time resulted in getting caught in rush hour traffic, doubling the time trip to the hotel. Trip back to the airport from the hotel with public taxi was cheaper than Viator.
Based on another review, I requested a driver named Shardi. I thought it was a long shot that I would get him, but sure enough it was him waiting for me at the airport. He was a great driver and answered any questions I had as he is very knowledgable of his country. His kindness set the tone for the rest of my trip in Jordan. Thank You Shardi and thank you Viator.
Driver was waiting for me and easy to find. Very friendly and informative. Great way to get to my hotel.
Our tour driver Muneer was great. We're very happy that he was our driver from airport arrival to visiting Mt. Nebo, Dead Sea and Petra. He was very informative, punctual and always asked us what we wish to do and was flexible to accommodate our requests. Thanks Muneer for making our tour interesting, pleasant and safe. Shoukran my friend.
Great experience! Our driver was waiting for us upon arrival and provided an easy and quick transfer to the city. He was very nice, spoke great English and proided some information about the local area. We booked all our tours through Viator so the driver who picked us up at the airport was our driver for the whole trip which was great, each day we were able to coordinate the next day's activities with him.
I was traveling with a friend and this was both of our first trips to the middle east, we felt much safer having arranged for a driver rather than taking a taxi at the airport. This was very safe and we were very glad we made this choice.
Also, one note on the airport. The signs say you can purchase a visa with a credit card but the agent at the desk told us he prefers cash and refused to accept a credit card. Furthermore, the ATM was out of cash. We were able to exchange USD at the exchange counter but be aware that you best off arriving with Jordanian Dinar.
My brother and myself arrived at Amman airport at about 1.30am in the morning, we were lucky to leave the plane first and proceeded straight to immigration where there were plenty of immigration officers and desks to choose from (beware if you don't have a entry visa you will need to go to the desk at the far left hand end and purchase your visa from this desk about 20JD each), after collecting our luggage we proceeded to the exit where our driver (Shardi) was waiting with the usual card with our names on it.
What a wonderful man Shardi was, being bright and cheerful even at that time in the morning, he loaded our luggage into the car and we left for our hotel in Amman (a transfer of about 1 hour).
Throughout the journey Shardi kept us informed of sights that we should consider seeing while on our holiday, his command of English was very good and by the end of our holiday (we had Shardi as our driver for the whole of our week stay) he became a good friend and someone we could trust and take his advice on many a matter. We would recommend any visitors thinking of having a driver to ask for Shardi......you will not be disappointed.
Transportation driver was at the airport arrival area with a sign with my name. Service was good and was worth the money paid
Driver was on time, pleasant, and a good driver.
Excellent experience. My driver was waiting in the arrivals hall with a large board showing my full name. He was friendly, courteous, fluent in English and knowledgeable of the country and travel related information. The transfer from Amman Airport to Petra was safe and efficient. I highly recommend this service.
