What people are saying about Capital Governorate Amman

This was a well organized trip, which put a lot of interesting things in each day, so that we had 3 fully packed days. We had the impression to get the most possible out of everything, and there were also a lot of nice meals and the very special venue of the tends near Petra. Best of all was the super well informed and friendly guide Ali, who provided us always with all the relevant background information, answered every question with attention and a deep knowledge and took care of every small and big problem. He encouraged us to ask always more in order to get a real understanding not only of the sites but also of Jordan and it’s people. He gave us a very direct approach to everything. Only thing not organized perfectly well was the journey back to Israel: we got the last meal at noon and then had a long stretch to the border and further to Jerusalem. With the bus arriving late at the border we were back only at 8:30 pm… One (additional?) night within Wadi Rum would be very nice!

I did a tour with Abraham Tour to Jordan- the 3 day option and we all had a blast. I did it in September 2022 I lucked out in having an amazong bunch of people in my group, our guide Wally (spelt I think Wa`hle or similar) was amazing. He is easily in my top 5 guides ever.... Abraham have terrible reviews from 2019 but newer reviews were amazing so I took a chance and decided it will be them. Also, theit itinery aligned with what I want to see. They were truly really good and my whole group had a lot of fun. I said I will go back to Jordan and I think partly because of the fun time I had. I spent a couple days wondering- 2 or 3 day tour. 3 day tour might be more expensive, but I do think you need a full day in Petra. We walked so much and went to the monastery and around. I think a couple hours are not enough. If you go for the 3 day one, the visa fee is lifted. Jordan is amazing and the Jordani guide and driver were terrific!

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.

Perfection! Ali our tour guide made everything perfect. Food, stay, tour, bus - All perfect! Accommodation was incredible- wifi, great food, hot water!

great trip and great organization a guide at the top, a magnificent Bedouin camp, all visits, meals included. I recommend this trip to all
