Worth it to see Petra - but improvements need to be made

This tour can be divided into two parts - the border crossing and the actual tour of Jordan and Petra. The Jordanian part was fantastic. Our guide Abdullah was one of the best guides I've ever had. He is so knowledgeable, patient, and kind. He truly did a fantastic job explaining both Jerash and Petra. The Bedouin camp was perfect. All the cool things about "camping" without the hassle. Yes - the communal showers and bathrooms aren't ideal but we were hardly bothered for the one night. The food at the camp and both meal stops were excellent. You do spend a long time in the bus traveling around, but we had adequate rest stops. Now, dealing with the tour desk folks from Abraham Hostel was a nightmare. We were all on time for the departure and signed in with guy in charge. However, when we got in the bus, they did not have enough seats for everyone. The guy was very condescending towards us - counting us multiple times and acting as if someone sneaked on the bus though we all signed in on his paper before getting on. 19 people signed in and the bus sat 16 so some people had to take a taxi. We were already delayed and when we left - all of a sudden the bus driver was called and made to turn around and go back so we could be recounted again! Not only that, but the guy confused EVERYONE with his description of the border crossing procedure and fees. The email/website says one thing but he contradicted the information. When folks complained about the info he was condescending towards them. This big delay set us back at the border crossing which was very, very slow and painful in the heat. The crossing back to Israel was a little bit smoother, but still stressful as the tour bus will leave without you if you are held back for any reason. Overall, it was still worth the border hassle to experience Jordan and Petra. I do believe you need a tour group and good guide to be able to see it and luckily Abdullah made the tour worth it despite everything. The Abraham Hostel/Tour folks need to clean up their procedures, information, and customer service for this to be a 5 star tour.
Great experience!

Amazing small group tour! The tour guide and bus driver took great care of all of us. The included meals were excellent. The people of Jordan we encountered were friendly and we felt very safe on the tour.
Somewhat Lacking!!

The guide on this tour was not as knowledgeable as I would have expected for a Viator product. The tour company was great and even called us when a last minute reschedule had to happen due to a last min Muslim holiday that affected our tour. Luckily we were able to reschedule. The border crossings were confusing and the guide was not forthcoming with expectations or instructions. Thank God the destination was worth all the hassles to get there. I would recommend the Bedouin camp. Make sure to bring a flashlight for when the lights go out. Trek to the bathroom could be dangerous..

Overall, our adventure to Petra was an enjoyable one. Our tour guide in Jordan was quite good. He was funny and engaging with excellent English. Our stops along the way, as noted in our itinerary, went as planned and were meaningful visits. Our group was small and the season for going was not a heavy tourist time so we weren't met with crowds of people anywhere. All visits were quite pleasant. The van was adequate and comfortable, the driver safely navigated the roadways and carefully guarded our possessions. We stopped periodically and enjoyed delicious food along the way. The food stops were carefully picked to provide clean atmosphere with tasty buffet food choices. My only area of concern involves the border crossing. Actually, that crossing was no problem, just time consuming. What was unclear to me was the money. I was prepared according to what I read in the material for the amount in US dollars and what I expected to need to change into Jordanian money for the return exit fee. However, when I got to the window on the Israeli side, what I had planned did not seem to fit. Then I needed money on the Jordanian side. In the end, it all worked out, but I was scrambling to find cash of some sort to make it work. The fact that we were individually crossing the Israeli border without a guide from either side, made it more stressful. Perhaps I misread something or inadequately prepared, but I would have appreciated a friendly face to clarify when I was in that uncertain position related to money. When we returned to Jerusalem late at night, we needed to immediately travel to our hotel near the airport at Tel Aviv. for a morning departure the next day. The Abraham Tour driver that we met after the border crossing graciously helped us get to our hotel, which was not on his list of stops, but which he was able to arrange for us. We are grateful for his patient efforts on our behalf.

I really liked this tour. The border crossing took little long but was easy because the tour guides helped us to get the necessary checking done fast. Our tour guide at Jordan was very knowledgeable, and funny and made the trip a pleasure. Spending the night in Bed-wing camp was certainly an experience and highly recommended. Only thing to remember is that there is no Electricity and running water after 12am till 6am in the morning. So any bathroom breaks during this time will be with flash lights and wet wipes. :

Wonderful experience. Unfortunately, there was no hot water in the Bedouin Camp before we left for Petra but that was the only issue on the entire trip. Our guide did a great job directing this large group.

This trip was great! The tour is really about archeological sites so if history is your thing - you'll love this trip. Our tour guide Mautaf / Mo was wonderful. He escorted us on all of the sites and was a wealth of information. Very engaging and I felt he really cared about our experience. All meals were excellent - they have selected really top notch locations and the food was not disappointing. The overnight camp experience in Petra was very cool. Although cold we were there in February, they provided lots of blankets and I slept very well. I felt safe and the camp staff were friendly. This is a camp in the desert so have realistic expectations about showers and hot water! Border crossing: this company did an outstanding job of telling us what to expect, what the risks were and what would happen should any one of us get delayed at the border. Like everything on this tour, the company has really considered the customer's experience and I have nothing but great things to say about them and this tour!
