What people are saying about Capital Governorate Amman

Excellent day trip to Petra and Wadi Rum. Our driver Mohammad who is fluent in English picked us up from the hotel at 7am promptly. We stopped for a break two hours into the journey at a rest house. Here your can eat good food and if you want shop for some beautifullly locally made products. Toilets are also available here. Then on to Petra. Here we spent 4 hours at Wadi Rum. It's spectacular. The driver waited for us picking us up at the drop off point. From here it's a 1 hour journey to Wadi Rum. Great experience with Yahya, a local who knows his way around the desert stopping at several points of interest. Yahya was very informative and fluent in English. It's a 2 hour drive in a 4 x 4. On return Mohammad picked us up for our 4 hour journey home. Both Mohammad and Yaha gave us a thoroughly wonderful day trip. Long but worth it.

Saw all the main sites that you’d struggle to see without your own car. Quite a few add ons such as 30jd to enter Dead Sea via the hotel and a few attractions that weren’t covered by Jordan pass. If you don’t have your own car then this is excellent for seeing all the top spots in the area. My driver was very friendly and bought me drinks and falafel. The guide doesn’t enter a lot of the attractions with you so you walk around by yourself for a bit of it. Overall expensive but very good to get around the area and to see the main bits. Highlight was the baptism site.

Ahmed was a fantastic driver, helped us out by waiting for us while we had a vet emergency, took us to a great resort on the dead sea with a great lunch. he was very flexible with timings all day even though the weather was extremely hot. the duration of this tour from amman is more than enough time to enjoy the dead sea and visit any shops for the products. Great day
