Hello Rana !!

I will like to express how happy we were with the services that your company gave us I was able to see and compare to another companies and I realized that your company is one of the best or the best . I would like to mention your wonderful staff from Hassan, Ahmad that had an excelent attitude with tourist, and be sure that the name of Jordan Direct Tours will be highly recommended Thank You once again.

Ps: I found companies that offered tourist guide in my own language but I did prefer your staff they are the BEST !!!!

Dear Rana.

This is a message from Luis and Stefan from New York. We would just like to thank you again for your excellent services during our recent visit to Jordan. We very much enjoyed our trip. Your company was very reliable in all the arrangements you made. We appreciate in particular your flexibility, as you allowed us to organize our visit just the way we wanted. We were highly satisfied, also with Ahmad, who was a professional, reliable and knowledgeable driver.

I am keeping your card in my office in the United Nations here in New York and in fact I have already given your contact details to a colleague who might visit Jordan next month. I’d be happy to recommend you further.

Thanks again.

Dear Rana,

We just wanted to say very big thank you for such a wonderful tour, and apologies for taking so long to send this email.

We all had an absolutely amazing trip and Mr Saleh was an extremely helpful and informative driver who went out of his way to make sure we had a good holiday.

Everything was organised perfectly and went more smoothly than we ever thought possible. The welcome packs were a great idea and gives us something to keep to remember our holiday by. We only hope we get to come back soon.

Thank you again.

~Naomi and Eugene

Dear Rana,

I thought you would like to know that we were very satisfied with all the arrangements for our tour In Jordan. Everything went smoothly.

Mo was a great help at the airport. Our driver Tayseer was very knowledgeable and it was good to have a driver to take care of us on all the trips. He was also very friendly and pleasant.

Thank you for all your help. We liked Jordan very much and hope to return in the not too distant future. We would also be happy to recommend you to friends.

Thanks again.

~Best wishes from Lynn and Peter Roberts.

Dear Rana,

I am very sorry we could not talk to you when we were in Jordan. Time went by quickly, as we had much to do and much to see, read and ponder.

Jane & I really had a great time in visiting your country.

Here we are in Wadi Rum:

And below – this is us having dinner on my birthday in Petra, all set up by Ahmet – we had a great time, he is a genuine and funny person.

And again in Wadi Rum having tea in the desert with our dest guide and Ahmet.

Once again – thanks VERY much for all your help and patience in the past.

All the very best.

~Jane & John

Hello Rana

I had a fantastic time in Jordan thanks to Ra’ed. I would like to show my appreciation by sending him something from here – could you please let me know who I should address a parcel to and what the address would be.

Thanks again and regards,

Bonjour Ahmad,

Merci encore pour ta gentillesse et l’agréable voyage que j’ai pu faire en ta compagnie aux quatre coins de ce magnifique pays qu’est la Jordanie. Voici ton portrait, j’espère qu’il te rappellera de bons souvenirs, pour moi c’est le cas.

Bonne continuation,
Amicalement,

~David.

We want to let you know that we really enjoyed our trip.

Hassan was a great driver, very warm, very willing to share with us insights into Jordanian life and culture, terrific ideas for meals, extrememly helpful – even on his day off he was there for us and made us feel that we were really being looked after!! All the places we visited were spectacular – visiting Petra has always been a dream and adding Jerash, Um Quais, Wadi Rum, Amman, Madaba, Mt. Nebo to our holiday made this an exceptional experience. Thank you so much for your recommendations and efficient service, and please pass on our regards to Hassan!

All the best,

Dear Rana,

I hope you are well.We have been back home since Wednesday night and are finally getting back on track.

Let me say first of all say that we had a FABULOUS time.We enjoyed Jordan far morethan Egypt.My only regret is that we didn’t spend more time.

The main reason for the success of the trip is because of our driver,Ahmed.He took very good care of us and kept us thoroughly entertained.He treated us as one of the family.

The highlight of the trip was our overnight in Wadi Rum.The camp was beautiful and secluded. After seeing the accommodations at the rest house I was really happy to not have stayed there. After dinner we walked up a sand dune and laid on the cool sand looking at stars.I have never in my life seen so many and I have been to some remote areas here in the states.

Dana was wonderful also-unfortunately we had spent so much time in Madaba buying a mosaic table (!) that we arrived at Dana just as the sun set. The guesthouse was beautiful! We had a great hike the next day with a guide named Talid who helped me quite a bit in navigating the rocks and was a wealth of information. Next to Ahmed he was our favorite in Jordan, although all the guides were great.

he transfer to Nuweiba went smoothly as did the car ride to Cairo. It was very nice of you to arrange the meeting with the person from the RSCN. We learned a lot about the other reserves and hope to visit them on our next trip.

To the contrary of what I’ve read I felt that Jordan was the better value. We spent far more money than we had intended to in Egypt. We will definitely return. Say hello to Ahmed for us!

~Judi

We are back home and I wanted to tell you we are very happy with our trip, in Jordan. We discovered a beautiful country and nice welcoming people. The tour was really a great moment. The hotels were fabulous, good value for the money.

We spent 2 full mornings in Petra and enjoyed the site very much.

Thank you and all the best

Hi Rana –

We arrived home VERY early yesterday morning, and I was going to send you an e-mail today, to thank you for arranging such a perfect visit to Jordan for Sam and me.

First and foremost, Kamal was wonderful. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. We had a lot of questions about the history, customs, people, etc. etc. etc., and he seemed interested in answering them. Kamal helped us get through immigration when we arrived from Eilat, and he eased our way through passport control and customs when we left up north. (That was hectic and confusing, so Kamal was an enormous help.) He was a superb driver/guide in whom we had the utmost confidence. I gather he will not be living in Jordan for the most part, so in the long run he will not be available to do for others what he did for us. Too bad. You can pass this on to him, but I will be sending him an e-mail myself.

Everybody we met was warm and welcoming and gracious and friendly. We had some unique experiences, including an interesting encounter with several retired women from Amman who were at Taybet Zaman on a “girls’ outing.” Incidentally, Taybet Zaman is beautiful and charming and, if you have a driver, certainly not a hassle in terms of visiting Petra. Petra, of course, was the most unforgettable of all the sites.

By the way, our visit in Israel was also wonderful, topped off by a fairy-tale wedding on Monday evening that took place at David’s Citadel at the entrance to the old city. It was magical.

You can be sure that we will refer to you any and all friends who are thinking about visiting Jordan. You were terrific! I hope we wil have an opportunity to get back to Jordan ourselves, and certainly to renew our acquaintance with you.

Many thanks.
Best to you both,

~Jo Ann

Dear Rana,

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the trip you arranged for us in Jordan. We were very impressed with both Hassan our driver and Mohanned our excellent guide. It was truly a great learning experience for us. Jordan is a beautiful country and all of the Jordanians we met were very nice and helpful. We will certainly recommend your company to anyone we know and hope that tourism will get better for all of you.

Thank you again for the special trip we enjoyed so much.

~ Sally Lowen

Dear Rana,

please let me say thank you for the nice and wonderful time we had during our stay in Jordan. Thanks a lot for your help. I hope everything has to be fine with the car.

If we will come again, we will contact you for further help.

With very best regards

~ Edeltraut Kuschel

Dear Rana,

Thanks again for your efficiency. Your immediate and comprehensive replies to every e-mail helped plan our trip to the last detail and it didn’t disappoint. I am still on a high from seeing such wonderful sights and meeting, without exception, such lovely people.

Please send our thanks to Jamal, our driver, who was extremely kind to the children and well as being always punctual and very knowledgeable. Our lovely driver Hassan in Wadi Rum also deserves a special mention.

I will certainly recommend your company to my friends and would love to come back myself one day.

Kind regards

~ Sally Prosser and family

Hello,

We all had a wonderful time in Jordan. When we phoned our kids last night to make sure they had made it to their homes alright, we found they were looking at all the pictures they had taken in the past week.

So, thank you. It was an excellent holiday, without the slightest hitch.

~ Robert

Rana,

Thank you very much for all of your assistance before our trip, and for organising such a wonderful holiday for us. We had a fantastic time from start to finish.

Kamal, our driver was extremely helpful, letting us feel comfortable at each destination and making sure that we knew what was going on. We especially enjoyed the jeep tour in Wadi Rum and the isolation of the desert, so different from London!

The hotel in Aqaba was also wonderful, allowing us to really relax for a few days before coming home.

I’m very sorry that there seem to be so few visitors to Jordan at the moment, when our security fears were quite so unfounded. I hope that numbers increase soon, we will certainly be telling all of our friends what a great time we had.

Please pass our thanks to Seif, Kamal and Mohannad, and anyone else who helped with our holiday.

Best wishes

~ James & Linda March

Dear Rana,

Our trip was lovely, and the services your company provided was top notch. Thank you for sharing your country with me. I thoroughly enjoyed my many days with Hassan, my driver, who proved to be a pleasure to share my experiences. I will definitely recommend your company to my friends.

~ John

Dear Rana,

We got back to our house in Kuwait about 3:30 PM yesterday. Everything is fine and we had a good time in Jordan. We think your company did a very good job regarding planning the trip and have good quality people working for your company (drivers,..) I am certain our colleagues will be asking us about the trip in Jordan and we will be glad to recommend your company to them.

We told our daughters that they have to visit Jordan sometime with their friends.

Thanks again for writing us.

~ Jennifer & Philip Chou

Dear Rana

It was very nice to have met you in person last month on our regrettably short visit to Jordan. Having spent some time visiting the sites and enjoying Jordanian friendliness it is a sure thing that we will return in the future and we have been recommending both yourselves and the country to family and friends!

Please could you accept our thanks for making our trip so enjoyable and could you please send our thanks and kind thoughts to Kamal. He was terrific, he gave us plenty of information about the country and sites and also made us laugh a lot!

Good luck for the future and we will hopefully be in touch to organise another visit (once we have paid this trip off!!).

Many thanks

~ Gareth Kelly

Dear Madame Rana!

Now we all are good back at home. We will say you many thanks for your perfect organisation. The trip trough your wonderful land was really a big adventure for all of us. We enjoyed it from the first to the last minute!!!

Thank you for giving us this ” first-class-driver” Mister Tarek. Please tell him, that we are very happy to meet him und that we all say once more “Thank you for all”.

When anyone of our friends will ever go to Jordan – we will recommend you.

Kindest regards to you

~ Grübler August and friends.

Dear Mrs Bseiso, Dears Mr Waleed

First of all we would like to share with you our sincerest gratitude we feel
towards all the Jordanian people we met for their very outspoken hospitality and friendliness that we experienced during our trip in Jordan (3/4/2002 till 11/4/2002).

The natural beauty of Jordan combined with the “warmth” of his population was a unique experience to our family.

As far as the organization of the trip is concerned we can only say that Jordan Direct tours outperformed itself. The trip was perfectly organized, starting with a very warm welcoming upon arriving at the airport (at 3 o’clock in the morning !).

The hotels and restaurants you choose, demonstrate clearly that a combination between local tradition and the comfort needs of spoiled western tourist is perfectly possible in Jordan.

Last but not least we would like to express a very warm “shukran” for Monzer, our driver, who did a outstanding job in making us discover Jordan.

His exceptional knowledge of English and French, his cultural knowledge, his wisdom, his negotiating skills, his kindness, made this trip unforgettable for us.

Driving and guiding tourists is clearly more than a job to him. It is a passion to him to meet new people and make them feel comfortable. Monzer is much more than a driver, he became a friend to us and the children.

I can only add that we will not hesitate to recommend your organization & Monzer to friends & family.

We sincerely hope that peace comes very soon to the Middle East. Your country is so rich in natural beauty and values that we feel it is very unfair that Jordan is suffering under the current circumstances.

Salam,

Dear Maha,

Sadly arrived back in England, and already missing your beautiful country
although the sun is shining here too though not as hot!

We cant thank you enough for the professional way you arranged everything in Jordan for us. It was fantastic from beginning to end.
We felt privileged to be just on our own and not in a group, and I think we saw the sights so much at our own pace that way .

How do you sum up the favorites of such a wonderful country. Firstly the people, everyone we met with the exemption of the odd Amman taxi driver, were so friendly and welcoming with their endless cups of mint tea. Jerash was spectacular, Mount Nebo so peaceful and moving, Petra we loved and the terrace of the Petra Forum is undoubtedly the best place in during Petra tour! But, for us both, the Wadi Rum will always remain the most unforgettable place. It has a certain magic about it I think, and next time I would want to be there for longer to absorb this more. I never believed I would see such sights.

The Disi camps setting is magical, but no doubt Amer will tell you about our sleepless nights with the Mosquitoes ! But did we have fun there?

Lastly our driver, Amer. We would not have seen or done half the things
without him, especially the Turkish Bath in Petra, which I vowed I would never have before!!!!! We both have never laughed so much and loved it. He looked after us so well, and really was just like a guide. I think he enjoyed our company too, and it was sad to say goodbye yesterday

We will certainly be coming back, sooner rather than later I hope, and I really worry for your tourism as it seemed so quiet everywhere we went (which was lovely for us!) The troubles are on the front page of every newspaper here, and being next door to Israel it is certain to put tourists off, but rest assured, we will tell everyone what a wonderful country you
have.

I have a real ache in my heart this morning, and wish I was still there.

Keep in touch and very many thanks
Best wishes,

~ Angie
