The highlights of our tour were Petra and Wadi Rum. We didn't enjoy the Dead Sea because the water and the resort was not very nice/access too expensive.
We had a bad experience with our driver (almost head on collission, combative/aggressive towards other drivers, looking at photos/watching youtube while driving.) We communicated our concerns with the operations manager; he was apologetic and said they would not hire him again.
The tour guide was punctual, arriving at 7am to our hotel lobby. We started off with a 4 hr ride to Petra where we got to spend 4 hrs at the site on our own. The driver walked us in and helped us get situated with a horse/carriage for my elderly parents. We arranged to meet at a certain time at the car. Again, the driver was punctual. We drove to Wadi Rum and arrived after sunset. We stayed at Night Luxury Camp at Luxury tent with AC and private Bathroom ( one Double tent for each two persons) because we paid the $75 extra for the upgrade to have a heated tent. Totally worth it since it was COLD. The night sky at Wadi Rum was breathtaking. There were supposedly activities at the camp (bon fire, etc) but we were so exhausted from the day so we opted out after the buffet dinner. We did wake up early to watch the stars at 4am and the sunrise (it was a little cloudy so we missed it - womp womp). The tour guide picked us up after our buffet breakfast and dove us to 3 sites. He was a prior military service man so he taught us desert survival skills as we went through the Wadi. Super cool. We then took off for the dead sea and spend a couple of hours there. Pros: super nice guide who is knowledgeable about the desert and the country. Very patient and very willing to answer questions.Cons: we booked a private car for 4 passengers. The small SUV really only fit 3 comfortably, not 4. We were a bit crammed. The tour company is super nice so Im sure if you sort that detail out ahead of time, they will figure it out so that you are comfortable.
Its a must do trip if yo have short time in Jordan. You can almost see the whole country. Our guide Jafar was a very nice n well informed man. He took good care of us. The car was very comfortable. The night stay in WAdi rum was just amazing. The dinner we had there was very nice. All in all a perfect tour.
Amazing 2-days tour through Jordan thanks to our tour-guide! It is really not possible to say enough about Mustafa. 10/10 for our driver-tour leader-guide! He is a wealth of knowledge, great personality, full of educational information, great company and very competent. His experience and service definitely exceeds expectations. He has an incredible knowledge of all aspects of Jordan’s history and much more than that.
He never gets tired of answering all kind of questions you may want to ask him about whatever. We never stopped asking questions about everything during the whole tour and he was always happy to respond and finally give a more than a complete view of things.
Very well informed, helpful, entertaining, respectful, engaging.
An outstanding experience driving through Jordan with Mustafa and visiting all those amazing sites and natural paradises with a person he knows so much. Excellent organizer, he knows exactly where to take you, what to show you, when, how and why. It was just a 2 days tour and in the end I definitely felt I ve seen and learned so much. 100% recommendable!
Thank you for everything, an unforgettable experience! Well done!
I totally enjoyed the excursion with our guide Mohammad and was able to see a number of really interesting sights I would be unable to see on my own. The tour included a trip to Petra as well as the Dead Sea and the Red Sea but my No. 1 favourite activity was definitely the night spent at Wadi Rum which was exceptionally beautiful. Mohammad was exceptionally knowledgeable and took a lot of time to answer many of our questions and making the trip absolutely wonderful to us. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the great country.
This is one of the best trips I have ever been on..and I have traveled much of the world. : Mustafa is a great guide and if you only have a short period of time a must to work with him. Petra is amazing and everything you could imagine. Wadi Rum is a wonderful surprise and the icing on the cake. Nothing quite like looking up at the desert sky to see the entire galaxy.
A most incredible 2-day adventure through Petra, Wadi Rum, Mujib Trail and the Dead Sea. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is due mostly to the efforts of our phenomenal guide, Mustafa. His knowledge of the region and its history, thorough experience as a guide, flexibility, enthusiasm, professionalism and excellent English ensure a worthwhile trip. Jordan Private Tours have organised an excellent tour. I highly recommend Mustafa and Jordan Private Tours.
