Unbelievable!!!! - Breathtakingly unforgettable. Walking through the almost 4 mile hike was almost a spiritual journey. Pictures in media is just 10% of how it really is in person.

Anas our driver…incredible!!! - Anas Abu was incredible as a driver and companion during our trip. We had several experiences with him throughout our two weeks in Jordan. He was extremely dependable, helpful in figuring things out as we do not speak Arabic, and highlighted different points of interest during our various drives. We highly recommend Anas and will use his services again the next time we visit Jordan, our thanks in making our trip truly memorable!

Absolutely recommended - We had a great experience!!! Mohammad Bardaghawi is the best! He picked us up early in the morning and managed our schedule very well. He also explained us the main information about Jordan and the things we were going to do in our tour. With him we were confident all the time. And in Petra he left us in hands of a great guide that told us the most important features and took some amazing photos!!
