What people are saying about Capital Governorate Amman

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 was a wonderful experience. The driver was very knowledgeable about the routes and showed me some views of difference destinations which was extra. Zach, was punctual and was very eager in making sure you were safe and satisfied. I enjoyed spending time with him. He also gave pointers on things to look out for while touring Petra. There are people that will try to swindle and take advantage but you’ll just have to say no and keep moving. I did not do any donkey or camel rides for to me it wasn’t worth it. It will take the same time walking. I was able to do the tour myself without guide. I simply did a lot of research and reading prior to trip.

Excellent trip. Covered everything and more. Our driver was Basil and he was great-safe, knowledgeable and gave us lots of tips for visiting. Lots of beautiful places covered.

Harim our guide was excellent. He went beyond our expectations accommodating our requests . Petra is incredible. Worth every second of planning necessary.
