Petra Highlight

Our Jordan guide, Yazan, was outstanding in every way: friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and passionate. You could not ask for a better guide. I would rate him 10 stars if it were possible. Petra is a no miss tour. It is awesome. Yes there are some hours on the road, but with our group and guide, no problem.

Amazing site

It was hard work getting there from Jerusalem (long, long journey on the coaches). The Jordanian coach itself, though quite new, was really struggling at times. And the "luxury" Bedouin camp gave rather a new meaning to that word (though it was magical in other ways, sitting round a camp fire drinking tea under a full moon). So why five stars? Two simple reasons. First, the Petra site itself is truly one of the wonders of the world, and is breathtaking in terms both of its natural attributes and of the manmade carvings, etc. The scale is vast, and the whole thing is an unforgettable experience. Second, our guide Mahdi was just wonderful. He is the ultimate professional tour guide - very well informed, good sense of humour, calm, patient, excellent grasp of English, and just a really nice person. He transformed what could have been a very tedious coach journey into an experience that we would not have missed for anything. He seemed to know everybody wherever we went, he treated everyone with the greatest respect, and it was obvious that he was respected in his turn by all those who knew him. Altogether a lovely human being as well as an excellent guide. So a big thank you from your three travellers from the UK!

Fantastic Petra

Petra is fantastic archeological and historical site in Jordan. Our guide Mehdi is excellent and knowledgable, very kind and he made us discover Petra and Jerrash also in very close and comfortable way. Mehdi is like encyclopedia! Amazing and very passionate in his work It was too hot, but August is the only time of the year we could visit. So- we managed. Bedouin camp is great and we enjoyed new experience to sleep in tents. Service 5* for Bedouin camp. Over all it is a must when in this part of world. Tip: Petra is much bigger than we expected. Riding a donkey to get to Monastery saved us a lot of time and efforts.

Mahdi (our tour guide) is an excellent guide & very nice person. We couldn't imagined how he handled this tour very well & the fact that he hasn't eat or drink anything due to Ramadan. He took care of us from the beginning till the end of the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour, you really need atleast 2 days in Petra including staying overnight in the camp. Camp was clean & the camp manager Ahtep makes sure that there's food on the table. Overall it was a great trip to Jerash, Amman & Petra, Jordan!

WORTH THE TRIP!

I was in Israel for 9 days on a Christian tour and decided to stay longer to do this tour, and it was well worth it! First of all, I was in the "neighborhood", so decided I had to extend my trip. It was a long trip but I had a great time. The coach was comfortable and relaxing, everyone slept most of the ride. The Bedouin Camp was UNREAL! Wish we had MORE time to just hang out, but it was super comfortable and the bathroom facilities were modern and pleasant (clean, accessible). It was really exciting to do that! Then PETRA of course was spectacular, and the guide, Sammy, was nice, organized and made us feel safe. I went as a single female, and always felt safe. The border control is a bit scary, but just keep it cool. It all turned out right. I'm very happy I extended my Israel stay and recommend this trip!!

We took the 2 days tour of Jordan and we were able to see and learn so much! Jerash and Petra were breathtaking! Amazing history and sooo much to see. The stay at Bedouin camp was fun and food was good. Kamal ( guide) was very helpful, knowledgeable, and open to any request. Boarder was "interesting"... Going to Jordan took about 1 hr for both Israeli and Jordan customs. IMPORTANT !! get Jordanian dinars before the boarder, we didn't prepare well enough and paid about 20% premiums for exchange . YOU NEED 50 DINARS PER PERSON. 40 for entrance fee and 10 to exit. Also, ensure you have dinars for drinks and tips... Everything else is taken care of. Things are not cheap in Jordan. Going back into Israel. The fun part. The tour group gives you paper instructions on how to get back if you get detained.... This seems to be quite common. We didn't think so until 3 of 12 were grilled by the Israeli guards and 1 guy was questioned for 1and half hours. Luckily everyone in our group were not in a rush and we waited for him at the boarder. Even with that, Jordan was amazing and wish we had more time!!!!

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.

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..
