My driver Hafez, was a nice guy. He’s kind of funny. During our last night, I said that the San Rock Hotel’s food is not nice, he offered to drop me off at some good dining place. I said, sure and asked him along for some local KFC for which he treated me to the meal. The tour to Wadi Rum was amazing and friendly driver. Petra was really fantastic but time was too short. I had 3 hours there. Other than the 30mins walk before one reach The Treasury, the 2 hour private guide was detailed. But when we reach the end of tour before even reaching the Monastery, I’m running short of time. Heading into the Monastery is another 45mins walk (one way) with 900-1000stairs to climb. Would advice a full day at Petra. That should be great. The hotel Movenpick Nabatean in Petra was an amazing hotel facing the pretty Sunset over the horizon. Dead Sea was good, but would be even better if it was held at Hilton Instead. As I had it at the Amman Beach Resort (which was a local beach), I wasn’t able to experience the mud spa service.
The visit was amazing from pick up to drop. Though I had to cut short and change my plans due to personal emergency, everything was taken care of. Infact I even got a refund on my Wadi Tum trip which I could not take. My drive for this tour - Aarafat was amazing and very helpful. Special mention of my guide in Petra - Saleh. Very knowledgeable and amazing. I was a solo female traveller n felt absolutely safe.
Hassan was a wonderful guide, he was very attentive and took us to some other sites that were not on the specific itinerary, but which we had time to visit. The country and experience was amazing and highly recommended - we were made to feel so welcome by everyone that we met in the country, Jordan is a beautiful place. Thank you to Hassan and Zaid Tours for a trip to treasure.
What an amazing experience. We were greeted by our driver upon arrival at the airport and he drove us to our hotel where he helped with the check-in process. So no one is surprised, all the hotels have metal detectors and body scanners you have to walk through each time entering the hotel. This wasn't off-putting at all as it's for your safety. Petra is just amazing and much larger than we anticipated. We were told that approximately 90 of it is still underground. Next day we were off to Wadi Rum. We upgraded to a 3 hour jeep tour which was amazing. Our driver took my neck scarf and wrapped my head as a Bedouin and then took red from red rocks and painted my face as well. He showed us how the Bedouin's make soap out of a plant and then in the middle of nowhere we came across a Bedouin he knew that was brewing tea. We stopped and he threw his coat down for us to sit on in the sand and he then proceeded to pour us tea. Spent about half an hour there. Dead Sea was next. There are bowls of mud and you shouldn't miss the experience of slathering it all over your skin. It feels so soft going on. We then went to the water's edge and not quite sure how to approach floating but it just happens. Were told the Dead Sea is evaporating and may not be hear in 40 or so years. Jordan was amazing and we felt perfectly safe while there.
We had a particularly poor experience with this tour. We'd paid for 'Prime Class' hotels - which promised western 4 star standard. They were 2-3 star standard with poor food and, in Amman, poor location. Facilities at the Dead Sea were unsanitary. We were made to feel like an inconvenience to our driver. I would not recommend at all.
It was an amazing trip. We really enjoy the country. Everything was excellent. Net time I will upgrade for bettee hotel rooms. The guide is an excellent person very patience. I full recommend amman for your next vacation
A thoroughly enjoyable experience through what is a magnificent and fascinating country. A huge thanks to Zaid Tours and my guide Amer. Traveled in April 2017.
