“The trip was incredible thanks so much. I really appreciate the flexibility you guys had in accommodating our tour into Wadi Rum. Honestly, everything worked incredibly smoothly as well. All the guides were on time and made the experience seamless. I would do it again for sure.” -Nick S, USA
“Nizar, our tour guide. What a character, what a dude, what a king. He knew every angle for the best pictures any time of the day, was inclusive, hysterical, and an all-around good time. I went into this trip open to the possibilities, and I never thought he could give me such a fruitful vision of Jordan’s past, present, and future. He was fascinating, he was entertaining, he was knowledgable, and he taught us with facts rather than opinions. Nizar – highly recommended! You guys killed it with this tour. Loved every second of it. And by the way, I never write reviews about anything, but this trip was 100% worth it.” – Rebecca Z, Israel
“We were very satisfied with the tour to Petra. Very good assistance from everyone. Everyone was on time and the guide was very prepared and very kind.” -Luca, Italy
