The 5 Night 6 day highlights of Jordan experience surpassed my expectations. I was awed by the beauty of Jordan along with the ever friendly Jordanians I had the honor to meet. The tour operator, Allure Tours and Travel provided a first class experience from start to finish. My friend and I were met at the airport before customs to guide us through the visa process, after which we were introduced to our driver for the week. Bassam was a fountain of information besides being both courteous and punctual at all times. If we had an extra errand, he knew just where to take us. Bassam has been driving for nearly two decades and knows everybody and everything. This made the experience far more personal as we had numerous opportunities to interact with the locals. As I stated, Jordan is beyond spectacular and pictures provide only a glimpse into the reality of what you will see. Petra gets all the glory as a must do, and without a doubt, it deserves its accolade as one of the seven wonders of the modern world. However, I was simply blown away by the beauty and magnitude of the ancient Roman city of Jerash. Nothing I saw in Rome compares to this ancient city, simply because of its size. Rome has beautiful ruins of course, but has been built over and over again throughout the centuries. Jerash was never built over so allows you to imagine what it must have been like to live there. What is more mind boggling is that in its hey day it occupied 800,000 square meters within its walls so still has considerable real estate yet to be unearthed! Wadi Rum was also included in this tour and proved to be a spectacular destination of natural wonder. One of the best things offered on this tour was a chance to eat dinner with a local family in Wadi Musa. How welcoming this family was to two strangers. Here our tour manager also met us to ensure everything was meeting our expectations. Ramsy and Bassam love their country and so enjoyed sharing their culture and history with us. I HIGHLY recommend this tour which truly covers everything about Jordan you can imagine and more.
