Thank you .My Dad and I had a great time visiting your country. The people we met were warm and very friendly. We could not have chosen a better tour group/guide. Mansoor knowledge was exceptional and he was the perfect host.
I am connected to Trip advisor and I have finally decided that I need to connect to facebook. And I will definitely post a review of my trip with your company.
Last but not least I would like to thank yourself for being able to accommodate my request, for me it was an honour and a humbling experience to be able to visit the various Prophets and companions of the Prophet.

I had been meaning to email you to say thank you for organising this trip for us. I was very impressed with the speed with which you dealt with my enquiry which was made very late in the day and the tour you put together was perfect for our needs. The driver, Wally, was great company and very helpful and efficient - he made everything so enjoyable for us.
I have been telling everyone to visit Jordan, and will certainly recommend your company.

I am writing to tell you how much Judy and I enjoyed the tour we took with your company. From your initial emails giving us tour options/information and your willingness to work with us to formalize an itinerary to the smoothness of execution the entire time we were there.
We felt that we were in good hands all the way and everything went so smoothly. That was due, in large part, to Malek our driver. He was very professional and exceptional at what he does. We were so lucky to have him and felt that he was actually part of "us." I will recommend him (and your tour company) to any of my friends and family that may be wanting to visit Jordan. It was truly an unforgettable experience.
All activities were splendid, the organization was suburb and Malek really made the trip personal and fun and we were happy with everything.
I wish you all the best and hope to come visit again soon.

Thank you so much for organizing our visit to Jordan. Jordan is an amazing place and with us only being there for a short time having a private driver was a great way to travel. We were able to see more thing in a short time. This was the first time I've taken a trip like this, private driver and all and did not expect to be treated this good. Abraham was awesome, had everything we needed.
Our hotels were awesome especially in Petra. I'm sending a few of my favourite photos. Please forward them to Abraham.

I would like to give a review of my recent trip to Jordan and my experience with the driver/guide Qais.
This experience exceeded all of my expectations by far. I found Qais to be extremely professional, friendly, welcoming and very personable. From the very beginning, I felt comfortable talking to him as if he was a long time friend. I found him to be very knowledgeable about all the sites we visited. From the Citadel and Roman Theater in Amman, the Wadi Rum desert and Bedouin traditions to the Dead Sea, Qais provided us with great knowledge and even greater experiences. I greatly appreciated his flexibility in scheduling, site visits and meals as well. Additionally, he hooked us up with a very knowledgeable guide for Petra which made our visit very memorable.
I can go on and on about how great a trip to Jordan this was and would highly recommend Qais and Jordan Direct Tours to friends or family wanting to visit Jordan.
Thank you for a memorable trip in which my memories are irreplaceable!

I just wanted to say how happy we were with the tour and your services. I am recommending you to my friend who is getting married in Amman and who will host a tour for our friends. Essam was an amazing driver. He was perfect! Gave us great options and let us do things at our pace. We also felt that he really took care of us.
Finally the Rum Stars camp was amazing. It was our favourite part of the trip!
Thanks again for an amazing service! I would recommend it to anyone!

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our tour last weekend.
The hospitality shown to us was exceptional and much appreciated.
From the first moment we contacted you, the service and attention to detail has been brilliant and
the professionalism and knowledge of our tour guides George and Mohammad made both days interesting and memorable.
Nothing was too much trouble and we felt extremely comfortable at all times.
I will certainly come back with you and I would have no hesitation is recommending your company to all who want to travel to Jordan.
Thanks again and best regards,

We have just arrived back from a fantastic holiday in Jordan. We wanted to say that we are very grateful for all your help and we wanted to point out that we have been very impressed by your services. We have travelled around the world quite a lot but we had never experience such a high level of customer service. Ibrahim's attention to detail was outstanding and definitely better than our expectations. He made our trip very enjoyable and enhanced our experience by adding his comments and providing us with information that otherwise a normal tourist would not get. We would be more than happy to recommend both you and Ibrahim to our friends who want to visit Jordan!

Just a quick thank you for our recent trip. It all went perfectly and we had a great time. Hitham was great, the perfect guide, very friendly and helpful and Kareem in Wadi Rum was great too.
The trip was perfect saw all we wanted to see, would have loved to stay longer, but cant have everything.
So thank you so much for your time and effort in planning. It all went so smoothly. I will certainly recommend your company and tell people how great Jordan is.
Thanks so much,
Mark and Anne.

Good afternoon Elin,
Hope all is well in Amman.
I have finished my tour of Jordan and have returned to Abu Dhabi. I would like to tell you that I have nothing but good things to say about your company and country. From the moment I saw the yellow card with my name upon arrival, to the moment I was escorted through security to the check in counter to return home, I felt completely taken care of.
You, Jasmine and Marina were amazing in handling all the administrative details of my trip. Thank you for answering my many questions prior to the trip, and for helping me to design a tour that catered perfectly to my interests. Marina handled the payment of my tour expeditiously, and all went smoothly.
I am extremely appreciative of you assigning Firas to be my driver, because I cannot imagine anyone more welcoming and patient than him. He traveled with me for three days, and entertained my billions (maybe only millions) of questions about everything Jordanian – whether they were about the physical landscapes, history, politics, religion, culture – anything. He gave me a great sense of security, making sure that I was well taken care of with my local guides. Firas was always punctual, and gave me the flexibility to stop and take photos (which I did often) whenever I saw something interesting (which happened often). And yes, toilet breaks, too!
Your country is absolutely beautiful! Petra was so much more spectacular than I had imagined. The Dead Sea was extremely dreamy at sunset. Jerash reminded me of my trip to Rome, only quieter and with less traffic.
I truly enjoyed my trip, and wish I were back there now. I have taken the liberty to recommend Jordan Direct Tours to a few of my colleagues who are interested in visiting Jordan in the future. Hopefully, someday, I will have the opportunity to return and visit Wadi Rum and other sites I had too little time to see – inshallah, as one would say.
Please relay my sentiments to Marina and Firas.
Take care, and thank you all again for such a wonderfully memorable experience!

Arrived back home last Tuesday after a most interesting and eventful holiday to Turkey and Jordan. We loved both countries and every thing went without a hitch. Your arrangements were first class and could not fault any of the Hotels used- their location and facilities particularly the Movenpick in Petra were excellent. Our driver Hani was a most capable driver and worked hard to ensure our stay in Jordan was a happy and interesting experience. Nothing was too much trouble and his advice was much appreciated. We fell in love Petra –the 3 days there gave us the opportunity to really take it all in. We walked –donkeyed-horse ride many kms .We could have done with another day in Dead Sea to unwind but there is always next time. We never felt unsafe anywhere in Jordan and trying to pass on the word to our contacts here in Australia of Jordan’s appeal and safety.
Thanks again to you Elin and Hani for a job well done. Hope to use your services again sometime in the future.

I trust all is well with you.
I finally reached Zurich this afternoon and I've returned with a really fond memory of Jordan. One most important wish that I had when I made the decision to come to Jordan was to be able to enjoy the trip feeling safe and supported.
Yousef did a great job for us. He certainly provided everything (and more, as sometimes we were not aware of what we actually needed to do or have) that was required to ensure that we are happy. He is very flexible, supportive, also honest and mostly wise in advising us with his views/recommendations about anything and everything we need to know in Jordan. The car and the facilities that came with the car were also great.
We certainly enjoyed all the hotels we stayed in. Great beds to sleep and great services and facilities. We enjoyed the resorts as well.
Thank you for your support as well in arranging everything. We came in rather last minutes with a lot of questions and requests. I am happy with how the trip has turned out and would certainly speak highly of our experience in Jordan to our friends.
Take care and have a great day,

My husband and I travelled last week as members of Hilary Tomlin's group on the tour of Jordan that you so kindly organised and I would just like to say how much we enjoyed our trip! The accommodation was excellent and it was wonderful to see so much of the country and to learn so much about it from Abdullah who was a superb guide!
Thank you very much for all your care in planning the tour; it was very much appreciated! It is obvious that there is very much to see in Jordan so we do hope to visit again soon!
Very best wishes,

We would like to thank you for the private tour to Petra and especially the thank our driver SAYEL!
He has been very professional: punctual, very polite, proposing options while respecting our choice, explaining very well the places we visited or passed through! He has been able to answer all our questions related not only to tourist places but also Jordan political, economical and social life.
When you travel abroad, you enjoy it even more when local people contribute to benefit from the country. Obviously, Sayel, not only knows and loves his country, but has made the effort or learning and maintaining his knowledge about many aspects related to his country as well as the country we come from (France and Belgium).
He has been also a good and prudent driver which contributed significantly to enjoy the landscape, without stress.
Again many thanks and congratulations! We will remember that day and your organisation and Sayel made this happen!
All the best,
Patrick & Françoise MANA

Thanks again for all your help, we had a wonderful time in Jordan and wish we had stayed a few extra days to see a little more! I look forward to telling people back home about Jordan and should be able to "nudge" a few of my fellow travelers to visit in the future!
Everything went smoothly and we couldn't have been more pleased with Mansour Dawoud's punctuality, friendliness and excellent service.
Looking forward to another visit in the near future,
Daniel and Teresa

My husband and I would like to thank you for organizing a magical trip to Jordan! As you know we were quite concerned before arriving there because of all the adverse news we had been hearing about street protests in Amman. You were very reassuring and we were very pleased that we visited your beautiful country!
We wish to take this opportunity to express our delight with the service provided by our driver, Qais Bader. He was very polite at all times and had a great deal of enthusiasm during the entire trip. He loves his country passionately and this conveys itself to his clients!
Many thanks again!

I have been home for over a week and just now have had time to respond. I have travelled to many places including the Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu in Peru and extensively in Turkey, Central and South America including Easter Island. I must admit that my time in Jordan is arguably the most pleasant and enjoyable of my travels! I am even now looking for an excuse to return!
A very large part of my trip is Mohammad Karajeh, he is easily the most enjoyable guide I have had the pleasure to spend time with! The only possible competition is my Taxi driver in Goreme Turkey. But he only a distant second.
I have discussed Jordan with many friends and have strongly recommended your services! When time allows I will comment on tripadvisor as well.
I have introduced the concept of an Israel visit via Amman and the Dead Sea to friends and am hopeful that I can return.
Thank you again for your most excellent services, Jordan Direct Tours and especially Mohammad’s!

We just arrived home in California, and I wanted to thank you for setting up the incredible time we had in Jordan this February! The two of us had a fantastic time in your wonderful and beautiful country. In particular, we were absolutely blown away by how incredible Petra was. Jerash, Kerak, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea were also fantastic, and will be memories we will cherish the rest of our lives!
In particular, I must thank you for all the attention you gave us at our last minute decision to visit Jordan. We had originally looked at Egypt, but with the unrest there, we came to you looking for an itinerary just a little over a week before our scheduled holiday period. Not only did you communicate quickly with us every single day, but a last minute change in the date of our flight schedule was accommodated for, and we ended up not missing out on any of the sites in Jordan! The minute we arrived at the airport and saw your representative there waiting for us, we knew we would be in good hands.
The hotels and food were all excellent! The InterContinental Amman and Movenpick Petra both had excellent accommodations and food. The Kempinski Ishtar Dead Sea...what can I say? That is easily one of the best resorts in all of the Middle East! Next time, we definitely hope to make it to Aqaba as well!
We had a great time with our driver, Qais Bader, who was always on time in the morning and kept in close communication with us. He was willing to change the schedule around to fit our needs, and he was always available in case we had questions or wanted more information about the area. Specifically, when we arrived, our itinerary was missing the afternoon tour of the Desert Castles as we had originally decided on, but a quick phone call to your office cleared up the confusion and he took care of the tour in the afternoon. He also did a fantastic job explaining the history of the various sites and he was very passionate about his country. To top it all off, he was entertaining and shared a lot about his family and culture to us!
Some other feedback on the trip: -Definitely keep scheduling Petra and Wadi Rum towards the end of the trip, as those sites are incredible, and it's hard to compare anything else to it! -The Dead Sea was absolutely amazing, and I wish we had more days to spend there -A full day at Petra was fantastic! We thought we would be done in a half-day or by early afternoon - it turns out we spent all day there, with more there to see.
The trip exceeded all of our expectations. All of the people in Jordan were incredibly friendly, sociable, and never once did we fear for our safety or security during our trip, which seems to be a rarity these days.
We will definitely recommend Jordan and your company to all our friends and family. It truly was a dream vacation!

Both Wendy and I would like to extend our sincere appreciation for a wonderful tour of Jordan. It was more than we imagined and has 'wet the appetite' to explore more of Jordan and the surrounding countries! Whilst the sites that we visited were amazing, the success of this holiday was very much due to the Jordan Direct team and I can not speak highly enough of our driver and guide Mr Firas Ahmed! He is an excellent driver and a wonderful ambassador for Jordan. Sincere thanks also to the gentleman who met us at the airport both on arrival and for departure. The hotels that we stayed in were also very pleasing. A special thank you to you also for all your work in making this trip run so smoothly!
I look forward to my return visit to Jordan and I have passed on your company contact details to a number of folk who are also interested in visiting!
Please extend my thanks to all the staff at Jordan Direct and very best wishes for the New Year!!

Both I just wanted to let you know that my family and I had a fantastic holiday in Jordan and we are already recommending Jordan and in particular Jordan Direct Tours to friends and family! Everything went very smoothly, the accommodation was perfect, the places to visit were amazing, and our driver Wael couldn’t have been better. Our daughters took a real shining to Wael and still talk about him. He had a wealth of information about Jordan life, culture and sites!
So once again, thanks for a very memorable trip and please pass on our thanks to Wael!
