Manar,

Thank you very much for all the trip, it was simply fantastic and it was even better with your constant support.

If I have the chance to go back to Jordan, I will definately contact your company again.

Many thanks once again!

Dear Ms. Shakhshir:

It was nice to speak with you by phone last week. Now that I am back home, I just wanted to send you a short note of thanks. Our trip to Jordan was excellent! In addition to the amazing sights of Petra and the quaint hotel, we enjoyed Amman and the trip down.

Most importantly, our driver was professional, knowledgeable and an excellent addition to our trip. Mohammad made the trip even better.

Thanks again, and we look forward to a return trip to Jordan sometime soon!

We have just uploaded to my web site a number of images from our wonderful tour throughout Jordan earlier this year with the assistance of yourself, Jordan Direct Tours and our very friendly and cooperative driver Ahnad Al-Suwi.

Hi,

I would just like to say what a wonderful holiday we had in Jordan. The tour was great, and we have many fantastic memories to take away with us. It is such a beautiful country, and one day we hope to come back and do some more of it. We enjoyed all the hotels we were in, particularly the Kempinski Dead Sea, which we were really glad we spent an extra day at. The hotel in Aqaba was also very nice, although they are obviously still finishing off refitting it, which didn’t affect our holiday, but I’m sure it will be even nicer in a few months time. The hotel in Amman was fairly basic in comparison, and I think if staying in Amman for longer would be nicer to be nearer the centre of town, but for us was fine, as we only really stayed there so we were close to airport.

The biggest thank you must go to our driver, Shadi, who was lovely, and couldn’t do enough for us. We were very appreciative of him taking us to Petra by night and the returning us to our hotel afterwards which was in Taybeh as it was late by then, and he had been driving all day. We felt like we were saying goodbye to a friend at the end of our holiday, and do wish him well. He certainly helped make our trip wonderful.

Thank you all once again for organising this trip for us, we will definitely be recommending you to our friends.

Regards,

~ Alison

Hi Jasmine,

Sorry it took me a while to write back to you (I had to travel on business quite a bit after vacation). I just wanted to say a big thank you for all you’ve done to make it a great vacation for us – we had a wonderful time and liked Jordan very much!!! Special thanks to our driver Ibrahem Alsmadi – great guy, he was always responsive to all our wishes, showed initiative, great sense of humor – just a wonderful person.

Your country has a lot to offer and we will be happy to come back again one day 🙂

Hope all is well for you, take care, and many thanks again!

Best regards,

~ Oksana & Padraic Conroy

Just back last night, minus my luggage…

Just wanted to give you feedback as to how our trip went. Overall, we had a fantastic time, we all enjoyed it very much. What we liked about it was the variety of the experiences we had. And above all, the service you provided was first class!

Here is more detailed feedback of our trip so you can use this for future.

planning:

1. “Jack” our driver was excellent, discreet and most professional. The welcome by Raed (Spelling?) both at the beginning and at the end was also very appreciated.

2. Hotels: The Kempinski was the best hotel we stayed in. Dominique and I also really liked Le Meridien and would almost be tempted to say it was almost as nice as the 4 Seasons. The Movenpick in Petra was probably the most run down in comparison to the other hotels. Although not yet opened, I am sure the Kempinski in Aqaba will be impressive.

3. Experiences: our guide in Jerash was particularly good in explaining the history and giving us a great tour of Jerash. I would think that the Dana campsite would be a good experience and would look at recommending in terms of options to give to your groups as opposed to the night in the desert with the Bedouins which is to our taste probably a bit too commercial in nature.

However, the desert drive was super. What I would recommend is the substitute this for the night with the Bedouins. Also, the Dana guest house was nice but not the most comfortable place to sleep.

You realise these are strickly for you to use in future and by NO MEANS does this mean we did not enjoy our trip.

Once again thank you…you have a wonderful country, wonderful people and your tour provided us with the opportunity to validate this!

Cheers and it was a pleasure meeting you and working with you!

I have copied Richard as he is not yet back form hte end of their trip to Israel so he can add or comment further if he so wished.

Best,

~ Marc

Hello Miss Shakshir,

I hope your Ramadan is going well.

We have arrived back home from Saudi Arabia, and I wanted to send an email to you to thank you for the day trip we had in Jordan on the way to Arabia. We were very happy with our driver Talal, who was punctual, friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. His English was excellent, too.

We enjoyed our brief taste of Jordan so much that we are thinking of spending our next holiday there insh’Allah, so we can see more!

Many thanks,

~ Sumit Rahman

Hi Lamees,

A quick email to thank you so much for all our travel arrangements in regards to our recent Jordan tour.

Firstly, sorry to not have met you but we were in good hand at all times. Everything ran very smoothly, efficient and on time! The peoples of your country certainly are friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our experience and stay. Ibrahem our driver cum local guide was first class. Never late and full of tit bits of information on the local places we were passing thu. Nothing was too much trouble and he was always prepared to stop for photo opportunities, plus everything done with a smile.

Petra what can I say, awesome. Petra Palace Hotel was very good and we did enjoy the swimming pool after our long day walking in the heat! The rooms with a balcony (like ours) are the best to go for.

Aqaba snorkelling was excellent. Coral Bay Hotel suited us fine being right next to the coral reef etc. The hotel’s bus service into Aqaba was very good value for money and ran on time to the second! Unbelievable for us coming from Africa.

So once again thank you and your colleagues for our great holiday. We have already made notes for other friends who are looking to visit sometime in the future. Your company will be highly recommended.

Best regards Janice.

Dear Jasmin,

My wife and I have just returned to the USA after a wonderful, 8-day tour of Jordan and the first thing we said to each other upon arriving back home is how we wish we were back in your beautiful country!

Jordan Direct Tours offers a stupendous tour that showcases the many beauties and wonders of the Jordanian landscape and its warm, hospitable and welcoming people.

From the moment we stepped off the airplane, your representative, Raed, gave us a hearty welcome and personally led us without a hitch through the immigration, visa and customs requirements, and then on to our waiting car and driver. Raed was personable, kind and professionally keen about wanting to ensure that the trip would meet our expectations.

My wife and I have only praise for our driver, Mr. Monsour Monsour. Monsour is a quintessential driver whose number one priority was our physical safety—he always drove with the utmost care and professionalism. The air-conditioned car was always immaculately clean and polished and he made us feel like VIPs throughout the week we spent with him. He was extremely generous with his knowledge of the country and all the historical and modern sites that we visited. Without his insightful commentary and stories, we would not have come away from Jordan with such a personal and broad understanding, as well as a deep feeling of heartfelt affection towards Jordan and its people. Monsour was very, very kind and attentive towards us, always genuinely concerned about our comfort and willing to do whatever necessary to make our trip pleasant and enjoyable. Whether it was finding clean rest areas, restaurants, stores for shopping, finding the best route to travel, and how best to efficiently spend our free time, Monsour was the man to go to for the best advice and recommendation. My wife and I, after visiting the Citadel in Amman, had a most wonderful time when he invited us to a savor the delicious cheese dessert in downtown Amman. The taste was heavenly!

On our next trip to Jordan, we would like to include Syria on our list of places to visit. And when we schedule that trip, we want Monsour to be our driver.

The itinerary was perfect, the hotels and restaurants were all first class, and our days were neither too slow or too fast, but rather well-timed to allow us to see and enjoy Jordan at our leisure. Jordan Direct Tours is an excellent tour company, efficient and well-run; I recommend that you continue searching for ways to improve your service and product so that every client feels he is being treated as a Very Important Person.

Without a doubt, we fell in love with your country and its people. We sincerely say that we look forward to the near future when we can visit Jordan once again. Our choice of tour operators is easy—it will always be Jordan Direct Tours. And we have recommended JDT to all our friends. Best of luck to you all.

Jasmin, and now I leave the best for last. You, indeed, are a courteous, kind and attentive ambassador who professionally and most ably represents Jordan Direct Tours. From our initial inquiry (many months ago) to the day we regretfully left Amman for home, you treated me and my wife as if we were the only clients that you had. You are a valuable person and an asset to your company; I can honestly say that without your assistance in the front-office, our tour would not have been as memorable and enjoyable as it was.

Thank you, again, for a trip-of-a-lifetime.

Most sincerely,

~ ILDA & FRED CHILDS
Many thanks,

Hi Lamees,

We arrived back from Jordan yesterday. I would just like you to know what a good time we had, all your staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help and accommodate us. We took on board recommendations and enjoyed the experience.

Thank you for all your help, i have already passed on your details to others.

Once again many thanks

~ Jackie, Sally and John

Dear Jasmine!

I would like to thank you very much for all the beautifull times we had in your country, we liked almost everything there and I would definitely recommend your agency to my friends who are interested to visit your wonderful country. All my friends send their regards too.

Best regards,

~ Galina

Dear Lamees,

If anyone answer me about Jordan I´ll recomend him your agency.

All was perfect.

Dear jasmine,

Just a short note to say thank you for our recent trip of Jordan. We took home with us some wonderful memories and experiences.From the northern city of Jerash,the experience of the dead sea ,the absolute wonder of Petra (a must see for any traveller! ) to the developing Aqaba,every day was a buzz! Your companies organizing of our tour was excellent and went without a hitch. Our driver,Talel,was brilliant. He is a good man with a good heart – also a good sense of humour!

I had one of the best conversations about the middle east political situation I have ever had, with Talel .His knowledge of the history of the region was second to none. We also found the people of Jordan to be warm and friendly everywhere we went. I would definitely recommend jd tours to any one considering a trip to Jordan. Hopefully ,if our dollar improves,you will see us again one day

Once again many thanks

Dear Jasmine,

I wanted to take the time to finally thank you for the great job you did of organizing our trip to Jordan last month. Hani was an excellent driver, spoke English very well, and was quite intelligent and able to explain many things to us along the way. The airport assitance was perfect, the guide at Petra outstanding, and the Bedoin guide also very interesting to talk with. We are only sorry that we did not plan to spend more time in Jordan because we would have liked to see Petra in different light and have more time in the Dead Sea.

The Marriott Dead Sea Hotel was absolutely fantastic with excellent choices of food in many restaurants and they upgraded us to a suite as Mariott Rewards members. The Amman Hilton was lovely and I had the best light late dinner of my entire month long trip in their lounge.

I plan to recommend your company on Trip Advisor and you can feel free to use me as a reference in the future as well. GREAT JOB!

~ Marcy Levinson

Thank you for one of the most spectacular vacations we have experienced in many years. Our trip to Jordan far surpassed my expectations. From the moment we were picked up at the airport in Amman until we were returned seven days later, we were well taken care of. Our tour guide and driver, George, was remarkable and saw to it that our every need was met. The Jordanian culture, Petra, Wadi Rhum and the Christian holy sites were awesome not to mention the extraordinary Roman ruins that were a complete surprise to my husband and me. I would gladly recommend Jordan Tour Direct to anyone who would like to truly experience your beautiful country. The Jordanian people are kind, generous and gracious. We couldn’t have had a more pleasant trip. Thank you.

Sincerely,

~ Ed and Karen Logue

Dear Jasmine

I have lost the questionnaire, I am so sorry!!!! May I write you a mail instead?

General impression of your company

Very good and top professional (the fact that you ask for feedback speaks to itself!) Your company made me feel I was the only client you had, the service was very individual – however I know that you have many clients, as I knew later while travelling.

I cannot think of anything you could do better than you did.

Travel arrangements made by you: top quality, everything worked and you informed me always if there were potential changes.

Driver: was always on time and has responded always to my wishes (for example to drive me to the mameluk castle in Aqaba) and has always asked if everything was fine. His driving was safe and good. The car was always clean and in a good state. He never left me in any place until he made sure I was correctly checked in or got my ticket, etc.

Welcome at the airport: very friendly and informative, I felt safe and well taken care of.

Departure at the airport: Raed was just wonderful, I don’t know how he did it that I actually got the very best seat in economy class, so thanks again a lot!!!!

Hotels: Kempinski at Dead Sea was an absolute dream, I have probably never seen a nicer hotel.

Century Park was ok, friendly service but slow in the restaurant and no mini bar nor possibility to cook coffee

To summarize, if I ever should know of somebody going to your wonderful country, I would gladly recommend your organisation. Thanks again for the very kind support and excellent service.

Yours,

~ Nuria

Dear Jasmine

This is to confirm that we did make it back to Taipei safely, though a day late. Our helper at the airport, (sorry I have forgotten his name), was also very helpful and without his contact with the Cathay Pacific office we would have been much worse off.

I realise now that we forgot to hand in the comment form which we would like to send to you as we do want to acknowledge the wonderful service of Talal and the excellent organisation of our trip. I will fax it to you and if you would like any further comment or if you cannot read my husbands writing, I will be happy to provide it. Apart from Talal’s good ‘guiding’, he has a lovely friendly demeanour and most importantly he doesn’t smoke. I really do not think many Jordanians realise just how most non-smokers feel about being surrounded by so much cigarette smoke all the time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and now we have had an overall look at the place, the thought of going back to do some proper walking/trekking quite appeals. When we do that we will certainly get in touch with you.

Thank you for your excellent service.

Sincerely

~ Catherine

Dear Lamees

Just a note to say a great trip and well organised. Also the assistance at the airport coming and going was excellent and Mansour was also top class.

~ Martin Hayden

Dear Lamees

I would like to send special thanks to you and everyone else who organized our trip to Jordan and made sure that things go smoothly. We spent wonderful and unforgettable time. Mohamed, our driver, was especially great and he made us feel welcome throughout the tour. His kindness and hospitality as well as the breathtaking views of Jerrash, Petra, and the Dead Sea would always remain with us.

Best regards,

Dear Jasmine,

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for organising this magnificent trip for me.

Waleed was an excellent guide and you must also pass my heart-felt thanks to him for showing me what a beautiful country Jordan really is.

This trip surpassed all my expectations and I now have so many amazing memories that will last a lifetime!

Jerash, Ajlun, Wadi Rum, Madaba, Desert Castles, Baptism Site, Dead Sea, Petra, Little Petra… they were all just magnificent… I was so sad I had to leave!

Oh, and Amman Century Park was a great hotel for a 4 star! Would love to stay there again!

I have already told all my friends of how organised and reliable your company is and will hopefully be taking my mother to Jordan in the next year or two, so I will definitely contact you again when I plan to return.

Thanks again to you, to Waleed and to your whole company for creating such a memorable journey for me.

Many thanks!

~ Tania Tanios.
