The days in Jordan flew by and our amazing guide Ali made the tour unforgettable. He imparted his knowledge in a pleasant way and you could tell his 20 years of experience. I always felt that I was in good hands with him and the driver. The camp is in a fantastic location and the sunsets and starry sky were a dream. The tents and beds were comfortable and fit for purpose, the sanitary facilities were clean. I was very happy that it was still low season, so Petra and the camp were not as busy as expected. Wishes: Make a stop in the capital on the first day, after all you drive past it so close (possibly a viewpoint, omit the castle). On re-entering Israel to find a bus with a note from Abraham Tour and a bus driver who had been informed by Abraham Tours how many people to take. This small part just after the border was really badly organized.

Picked up from our hotel in Amman at 6am to begin 3 hour drive to Petra in comfortable air conditioned car. Arrived at Petra at 9am. Our driver was very friendly and he said we could take as long as we liked exploring Petra and meet him back at the car. We were grateful for this as the site is very big. We spent 5 hours inside Petra and met back at the car at 2pm to begin drive to Wadi Rum which was another 1.5 hr drive. When arriving we exchanged tour guide and vehicle (for a Toyota land cruiser) and began tour of the Wadi Rum. Our tour guide was a local, born and raised in the Wadi Rum and very knowledgeable. Stopping to take photos every now and then. We even stopped at a Bedouin desert camp to have tea. We returned to our original driver after and arrived back in Amman about midnight. What a fantastic day. Worth every penny!

This is wonderful trip; a must do in Jordan. My driver Captain Hasem was truly knowledgeable, professional, and went above and beyond to ensure that I was happy. This is a memory that will stay with me forever.

Our ride with Mohammad was really good..he is so professional came exactly on time told us a lot of information about the dead sea and other ares in Jordan! Highly recommend taking this trip

Ahmad , was the best guide/driver that I met in the last 10 years. He managed fantastic the entire day . I recommend 100 % the tour and the guide .
