    Getting to see all the antiquities and having someone to give the history was great. Having the companies help in a culture that is so different to my own.

  • David from PA gives this tour 

    The hotel in Amman was not conveniently near other restaurant options. We like to walk to such from hotels to eating places. The breakfasts were outstanding, but we found the dinner we ate at the Landmark to be rather expensive. On the other hand, there were an abundance of good, local restaurants available within easy walking distance of the Crowne Plaza in Petra. The day at Petra required a lot of walking/climbing for full enjoyment of the experience. That was fine for us, but it may be well to state this more clearly in promotional material for those who may not wish to be as active. Overall, a wonderful experience, which we would recommend to others with interests similar to ours.

  • Kelly from PA gives this tour 

    Had a wonderful time. Really liked being part of a small group. The hand holding from the airport pick up to our departure for Cairo made us feel comfortable. An intinerary change requested when one of us became ill was handled without a problem. We loved the driver who took us from the Amman airport to our hotel and then picked us up in Petra for the drive to Amman. The trip was a great experience.
