This tour was great. We did not have long enough in Jordan, but this tour allowed us to see so much! Shadi, our guide could not have been better or more helpful. We chose the 5 star option and the hotels were fine, but we would probably have been happy to pay a little more if there had been a greater choice, but overall a very good and highly enjoyble tour which was excellent value and I would definitely recommend.
A truly wonderful experience!
I was initially a little cautious about using Viator and an unknown tour operator in Jordan but our tour and all the arrangements for it went as smoothly and efficiently as anyone could wish for. Viator were responsive and very proactive in sending out our vouchers and making sure we had downloaded them before we travelled. The local tour company were great and kept in touch with us regarding our flights, the unseasonal snowy weather and our itinerary. And our driver and guide, Basel, was amazing. A true gentleman, he guided us through the ups and downs of travel in an unknown country with grace and kindness, keeping us safe while allowing us to discover the amazing sights of Jordan at our own pace.
We chose the four star accommodation option for our tour and, as other reviewers had noted, it was probably closer to two or three star. But in a country where resources are scarce and nothing is wasted, what is wrong with an old towel so long as it is clean? Hotel staff everywhere did their very best to meet our requests. And it was great having breakfasts and dinners included at our hotels - after a day of climbing around Petra the prospect of having to go out and find dinner would have been rather daunting!
In hindsight, I think we should have made contact with the local tour operator earlier and discussed options for staying a night at the Dead Sea rather than coming back to Amman, and also to find out about other optional tours in our spare time. Trying to make decisions on the spot about a side trip to Jarash was a little tricky...but in the end was SO well worth doing.So if you have other ideas, don't hesitate to contact Zaid directly.
All in all, highly recommended. So many amazing things to see and do in Jordan...and this tour picks the best of them for you. We will certainly use Viator again.
We had a great experience. Our driver met us at the airport, was incredibly punctual and professional, and guided us through a foreign country.
I think I got enough of an experience of Jordan that I'm not sure I need to go back, but I would definitely use Viator again for future travels.
The tour was great! I took my parents and aunt on this 4 day private tour and we had an amazing time. Ahmad our driver and guide was very nice, helpful, well informed and spoke good English. Due to the snow and the icy road conditions, we didn’t make it to Wadi Rum and so Ahmad took us to Madabar and Mt Nebo instead. We appreciated the flexibility offered from such private tours. I also liked the fact that the travel agency was calling from time to time to check that everything was OK (as the roads were icy and slippery). I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone heading to Jordan.
Absolutely nothing to complain about! Shadi our tour guide was an absolute star! Nothing was too much trouble. We mixed things up and went to the Dead Sea, we changed plans so we stayed in wadi rum. Just brilliant. I've travelled a lot and I would highly recommend this company. Absolutely awesome!
Tour guide was awesome, he was extremely informative, friendly and really helped us to get the most out of our time there. He spoke excellent English and had a great sense of humour. We were able to tailor our tour with our driver a little to suit our interests. Highly recommend this tour - was a good amount of things to do without feeling overstretched and the hotels were very comfortable and the meals provided were great. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. We went during Ramadan, and I would not be put off by going during Ramadan - although I did feel very sorry for our guides at times when they couldn't drink any water on a 40 degree day!
This was a wonderful experience as we had a limited time in Jordan due to other commitments and we certainly got to see as much as possible crammed into the time we had. We had a fantastic driver who spoke excellent English, drove impeccably (very important!) and balanced perfectly the correct amount of info, conversation and peace and quiet we wanted during our trip. The hotels were great and we added another night at the airport Tulip hotel, which was excellent value, independently. Petra lived up to expectations. Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea were also great. The food that was included was excellent and we had perfectly timed comfort stops. There was none of the usual attempts to take us to places that sold souvenirs, indeed I had to specifically ask to be taken to a carpet shop as this was something which I had planned to purchase and I felt I got a good deal. Jordan is a great country and don't be put off by the problems in Syria. It's the best time to visit at the moment as you can have the sites virtually to yourself. Amman is also a very nice city which we explored independently and we also caught a taxi to Jeresh which is not to be missed and again virtually deserted. We were two women travelling together and felt comfortable and safe at all times. However if it is your first time in the Middle East it may come as a culture shock but less so than other nearby countries. HIghly recommended and would use Viator to organise future travels.
All arrangements ran very smoothly with no faults
Hotel quality was excellent 4 star hotel were great
Driver Hassan was very knowledgable and made us welcome in his country. Wadi Rum was better than expected we did Petra by night at his suggestion and it was well worth it also spent good half day walking about Petra. Dead sea was quite an experience. I suggest that you follow and accept driver guide suggestions to make the most of your trip they know how to provide the best experience .
Jordan was a beautiful country with very friendly people had a great tour this is second time we have used Viator and would recommend them to everyone
We had an amazing time tour was very interesting and driver was experienced we felt very safe.
The trip was absolutely amazing. Everything was looked after and my driver was brilliant. I was by myself so could do something's when I wanted and we could change things time permitting. I would definitely recommend people doing a viator tour anywhere.
Well, it couldn't have been any better! I loved it. The guides, sightseeing, all good English speakers and knowledgeable of the history of the places. Special thanks to the driver, very responsible, kind and patient. Thank you Viator for providing me another great experience. I certainly recommend it.
We had a fantastic guide who was flexible, knowledgeable and very proud of his home country. Great way to see an amazing country in just a few days!
We changed our itinerary to skip Wadi Rum so that we could have maximum time at the Dead Sea. Would have been a long day of driving and only a 20min dip in the Dead Sea if we had decided to do Wadi Rum. Just means we will have to go back one day.
Highly recommend this tour to all!

Our trip was fantastic mainly due to our wonderful guide Ziad. He made our trip a very memorable one. Each day he was on time to pick us up and despite the great distance he had to drive to take us around he was always friendly and most helpful. We were really impressed.
The places are wonderful, the tour is very well organized and all the persons who we dealt with were kind and helpful. Being welcomed at the airport by a person who helps in the first formalities is reassuring. Moreover, the driver spoke fluently, which was a useful bonus for a couple like us. Definitely worth doing.
