Dear Lamees,

We just returned from our vacation in your wonderful country.
We just want to say thank you for the most well organized tour we’ve ever been on. From the very first moment we contacted you, everything went smoothly. I need to comment on the professionalism of everyone. Yourself, Ahmed who met us at the airport, Tariq our driver. Congratulations to the whole team. I will definitely make use of you again on our next trip to Jordan and I have already recommended you guys to our friends & colleagues. Please convey this message to the top structure of JORDAN DIRECT.

Thanks again,

~  George Roos

Hello there JDTs,

We arrived home safely in Kuwait and are pleased to report that we all had a wonderful trip in Jordan. The trip was well planned and we enjoyed all the historical sites. The trip would not have succeeded without our wonderful driver and guide, Mohammed Agol. He is knowledgeable, humorous, patient and extremely passionate about Jordan; a very good man. We would definitely recommend him to be the driver of our friends. There are many expats here in Kuwait who are interested in touring Jordan and we will happily suggest they do so.

Kind regards

Dear Jasmine,

This is to thank you very much for the arrangement for the trip in your beautiful country. We had a great time. Zacharias, our driver, was an excellent person and provided my family and I with everything that we needed. You have a great employee. Take care.

Dear Miss Lamees,

Well it has been 2 weeks since we returned from your beautiful country and I thought that I should drop you a line and thank you for putting together a wonderful trip for us. From the Dead Sea to Petra and then down to Aqaba and how could we forget Wadi Rum. So much history, so much to see. Khalid was very good, even purchasing a cake for my husband’s birthday which was very kind. From my family and I know our friends enjoyed it too, a big thank you and a belated Eid Mabarak. Don’t be surprised if a few of my friends email you as I am recommending you and the trip to a lot of them. I have advised that the best time would be Easter through to October? as if you want to partake in water activities I think “warmer” is better.

Thank you again, Jordan is wonderful and your organization was excellent.

~  Ros Madigan and family

Dear Lamees,

We returned from holiday on Sunday morning and we are now back at work after Eid. We had an excellent holiday and thank you very much for organising such an interesting itinerary. Thank you particularly for rearranging the itinerary at such short notice. Our driver, Ibrahem Alsmadi, was excellent and we would be very happy to have him as our driver when we come again (notice I said when, not if). Petra was very interesting but, much to our surprise, it was by no means the best part of the holiday. Wadi Rum and the Kempinski Hotel were both excellent. We saw Petra by day and night on the same day. Both trips were well worthwhile but we would just suggest that you warn people that two walking trips down into the Siq (and especially back again) can be very tiring.

We are thinking ahead to the Ramadan period next year (this seems a quiet period for the hotels) and we are considering a trip based on the Kempinski Ishtar (which really is very good indeed). We saw most of the sights on this holiday but we would like another visit to Wadi Rum, perhaps for longer and including sight of the sunset. We would also need transport to and from Kempinski and to Wadi Rum. We are also open to suggestions for places we haven’t seen. Could you give us some ideas for an intinerary and prices based on this information – staying at least a week and then perhaps a price for each extra night?

Thanks very much, again, for all your help.

~ Peter McGuirk

Hello Lamees,

I’m sorry these email is so late, but I have been caught up in travel! I just wanted to thank you and jordan direct tours for the wonderful time I had in Jordan. Basan was a great driver and the tour was just magnificent. I will reccomend you (and already have) to all my friends.

Thanks again,
~  Kalev Kaseoru

Dear Lamees

I just wanted to say a very big THANK YOU for the fantastic trip you arranged for us. Our driver, Raeed (hope I’ve spelt this correctly) was absolutely superb and everything you organised on our behalf was perfect. Once again, thank you so much for your excellent, prompt, efficient service. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone looking to have a fantastic trip in Jordan.

With my most sincere thanks.

Kindest regards,

~ Lynn Johnson

Dear Miss Lamees Shakhshir!

Thank you for unforgettable tour in Jordan (13-16 October). Everything was OK. Many thanks to you for organization and planning and to your excellent driver – Raed.

Best regards,

~Tatiana, Ivan

Dear Lamees,

Returned home from Damascus, Syria late last night so dealing with my correspondence now. Just a short note to thank you most sincerely for organising a great trip for me in Jordan – I had no problems & Okpa [sure I’m spelling it wrong..] the driver/tour guide was great – a really nice person. My trip to Syria also went well & I’m thinking of returning in the Spring to visit more places. I will recommend your company to any friends/colleagues planning to visit Jordan.


~ Raymond

Dear Rana,

We really enjoyed our trip there and were grateful to have the expertise of Muhammad, our driver.

He gave us a lot of information about Jordan that was very helpful. We saw many things, but especially enjoyed the archeological sites at Petra, Jerash, and Wadi Rum. Everything was very well organized. We traveled around Jordan quite a bit and decided that the only thing we could have done different was to spend more time in one place, like Amman, where we would have had a chance to see local attractions and interact with Jordanians more.

If we decide to revisit Amman as part of another trip, we’ll definitely contact you. That’s our plan because we started taking some Arabic classes. We might visit either Turkey, Egypt or Syria on a future trip. Could your office recommend a travel agent there we might contact?

Thanks for planning everything so well and making our experience through customs easier.

~ Elizabeth

Dear Lamees,

Dawne and Dave returned to the UK yesterday and were full of praise for the service they received from everyone at Jordan Direct Tours.

In particular the help given by Mr Raed Zoghoul – both on arrival and on departure – was priceless. It is not an exaggeration to say that a potential nightmare situation became a smooth and easy process due entirely to Mr Zoghoul’s friendly efficiency. The driver was outstanding. Solicitous, helpful and friendly. He brought your beautiful country to life for Dave and Dawne who have returned with a new perspective on the history and culture of Jordan.

The people were, without exception, friendly and kind. An absolutely magical break – thank you all.


~  Michael Wakelin

Dear Lamees and Raed,

We want to thank you for the wonderful trip. It was one of the best I did. Please keep up the Good work and I am as a Jordanian so proud of you. Please note that I am already having people checking for me for the first week of July. Anyways, I will arrange for everything and give you a call.

Take care and God Bless you …

~ Rana Al-Ruzoug

Dear Lamees,

My husband and I have a good time at Jordan. Thanks for your arrangement. In particular, your driver Okba has delivered a very good service and hospitality to us.

Best Regards,

~Wai-yin WONG

Dear Rana,

The visit to Jordan was absolutely lovely and I have recommended it to several people. Your organisation was professional, polite and speedy – thank you.

Kind Regards,

~  Lesley

Dear Lamees,

Now back home. Just to say what a wonderful day we had visiting both Petra and Wadi Rum. Mohammed our driver was excellent. Thanks.

~ Richard Beardshaw

Dear Lamees,

This is just a short note to thank you and your organisation for providing us with such an excellent tour of Jordan.

The hotels you selected were very good (only the Marriott in Petra seemed a little ‘tired’ but then it caters largely for people who stay there only to visit the sites at Petra, rather than to stay in the hotel for the sake of it).

The driver you allocated to us, Okba, was exceptionally good. His driving and time-keeping were first class and he was very knowledgeable about Jordan and its places of interest. Also, he was very good company, with a fine sense of humour. Nearly everything went extremely well on our tour and we shall be recommending your company to our friends.

With best regards to you,

~ Raed and Okba, Lynn and Nigel Butt

Hello Lamees,

We all had such an amazing tour of Jordan, we had to write to you and pass on our congratulations and many thanks for organizing such an enjoyable holiday for us.

As we are not sure who to write to, to pass on our appreciation, we would appreciate if you could pass this message on to your Manager and especially to the person who is the Manager of our escort: Khalid – Alwahsh.

The four of us in our group were totally impressed with Khalid to the point where if we came back to Jordan we would ask for him again. He was totally professional throughout the whole tour; was discreet when required; was protective of us at all times; provided valuable information and even went out of his way to ensure that during ‘off tour times’ we enjoyed local restaurants and attractions that he recommended. We would strongly recommend him to future guests.

Also, our entry and exit from Jordan was very efficient at the hands of Raed.

Lastly, but certainly not least, we would like to thank you for you very efficient organization in making the planning of our trip run so smoothly. We were most impressed with your immediate replies to our many questions and especially to the efficient change to our itinerary when we increased the length of our stay.

Thank you again and well done!

~ Allan and Shirley MacLean

Dear Lamees,

Thank you very much for organization of our holiday. In Jordan we had enjoyable and unforgettable time. Your colleagues were very friendly and attentive. Separately thanks to Mr. Khalid who was accurate driver and interesting guide for us. I’m very lucky that I selected your company.

Wish you a good business and family happiness!

~ Sergey Grigoryev

Dear Raed,

We enjoyed our trip to Jordan very much and had a good time, despite the difficulty on one day with the weather — of course, none of us have any control over that. Thank you for the arrangements.

I would also like to thank you for making arrangements to send back my wife’s mobile phone left behind at the Crowne Plaza in Petra. Some of my friends are very interested in visiting Jordan and I will gladly recommend your firm.


~  Naufel

Dear Ms. Jasmine/Lamees,

Thank you for the tour you’ve have arranged for Mr Ban’s Family. They really appreciated your hospitality and your assistance.

Thanks and best regards,

Dear Jordan Direct Tours,

just came back from the most magnificent trip to Jordan ! Your country was an amazing discovery : so rich of history ,culture, archeological and natural sights. Your organization custom made the perfect tour for me : I ‘m an international solo traveller and you guys accommodated all my requests with professionality, enthusiasm and warm hospitality. Jordan Direct Tours is very reliable, always on time, safe, and with a personal attention to make your vacation stress free and memorable. I highly recommend this tour operator. Thank you for taking such good care of me and to make me experience Jordan the best.


~ Cristiano Mancini, New York City , NY , USA

Dear Lamees,

It was extremely sad leaving your beautiful country after such a fulfilling vacation. We would have liked to stay longer, due in no small part to your company’s organization of the time and trip. There is no much more to see. I especially enjoyed the warm welcome of the Jordanian people. Without Mohammed, our driver, this would have not been possible. He very quickly understood what I had come to Jordan for — photography and ruins–and seemed to know at every turn what would interest me. I love to photograph the old with that which is contemporary about a country. He knew instinctively where I could shoot and learn about today’s bustling Jordan. His guidance was essential.

Best regards,

~  John Robertshaw

Dear Rana,

I apologise for my late reply to your email. I have been working alot and taken some more holidays. Thank you very much for making our tour of Jordan such an enjoyable experience. My mother has told me that it was the best holiday she has ever had and I am very grateful for all your efforts. We found the service right from the very beginning, excellent. Our driver Mohammed especially was wonderful. We really bonded with him and he really made our holiday more enjoyable. He is such an asset to your company! Jordan is such a beautiful country and I cannot wait to go there again. I would love to visit Petra again and Aqaba so I am very certain I will meet you again in the near future… I would not hesitate to recommend Jordan Direct to anybody who wishes to go to Jordan. Your company really looked after us.

Thank you again and hope to see you soon,

~ Anne-Marie

Dear Miss Shakhshir,

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my all-too-brief holiday in your beautiful country and to thank yourself and Jordan Direct Tours for the most excellent services which you have provided for me. I will say without hesitation that this was perhaps the most enjoyable trip that I have had in many, many years. And may I also add that a very major part of my enjoyment was the result of the also-excellent work of my driver, and new good friend, Mohammed Karajeh. I would enthusiastically recommend Mohammed, and Jordan Direct (and already have) to anyone I know who is interested in a visit to Jordan. Again, please accept my thanks and my heartfelt best wishes to you all.

Yours truly,

~ Mike Ringlet

Dear Lamees,

On behalf of my group, I’d like to say thank you for arranging a wonderful trip to Jordan. Our driver Jihad was very good, and the guides we had in Petra (Mahmoud) and Jerash (Mohammed) were excellent. They really helped us to understand the history of what we were seeing. Also, we were very satisfied with our hotels in Amman and Petra. We had a great experience in a short amount of time; I think we all wish we could have stayed longer. We will certainly recommend Jordan Direct Tours, and we hope to visit Jordan again sometime soon.


~ Virginia

Thank you for organising a superb holiday for my wife and myself.

The itinery was excellent, and we visited all the places that we have wanted to see for many years. Your driver, Bassam, looked after us extremely well and the hotels were all of a very high standard.

Thank you again,

~  Ian and Jackie Campbell

Dear Ms Bseiso,

Let me say that I am very pleased with my trip, the arrangements were perfect. A special thanks goes to the driver Mr. Tariq who was very responsible, punctual and a nice person to boot.

I really love Jordan and I will recommend visiting your fine country to my friends, as well as recommending Jordan Direct Tours. The only thing I found annoying in Jordan was the habit of restaurants to add the taxes to the prices of the menu. Particularly in Amman, where the taxes are 26%, the menu is quite misleading when you have to add ¼ to the total price.

Having my great sense of humour I usually ask the restaurants for information, not only about how many per cent they have to pay in taxes, but also the percentage for the rent, raw material, staff and of course their profit for the meal in question!

Of course, there is not much JD Tours can do about this phenomena, other than conveying this criticism when you have a conference with the restaurants.

Other than that, I think Jordan is a perfect holiday destination and I wish you the best of luck!

Best regards,

~ Bo


We had a very pleasant trip in jordan 4 – 11 july 2007. Your reservations expert ms. Lamees shakhshir did a good job with the bookings. Guide/ chauffer mohammed muawwad was very courteous and did an excellent job of showing us the country, introduced us to the people and made sure the trip went smoothly. We had a great lunch with mohammed’s cousin and his family at azraq. They are charming, hospitable people.

We have been recommending your services to our friends and talking positvely to everyone about our experiences in jordan. We were very impressed with the site at jerash, were happy to have an opportunity to be at petra on 7/7/2007.

The two night stay at the dead sea kempinski hotel ishtar (beautifultravertine limestones) was a marvelous way to end the trip. We spent all day in the sun and didn’t get a sunburn! Just in case you haven’t seen it i am sending you a powerpoint presentation of the dead sea i hope you will find useful. Best wishes to ms. Lamees shakhshir and mohammed. We will likely return to jordan next summer and do another custom tour with you, perhaps with side trips to damascus and jerusalem. Thanks again for the wonderful trip; keep up the good work!

~ Tim, Isabel and Zoe Coates.

Hi Rana,

Had a fantastic time in Jordan.

I would highly recomment your organisation for their professionalism to any of my friends. Your driver Obak (excuse the spelling) was excellent. Thank you once again for making our holiday memorable.

Best wishes

~ Anthony and Cath

Dear Everyone at Jordan Direct Tours:

We have just arrived safely home in New York, and we want to be sure to thank you for providing us with excellent tours and travel while we were in Jordan. Our driver, Mohammed, was extremely helpful, and we have learned a lot about life in Jordan. We are grateful, too, for the assistance in navigating departure procedures at the Amman airport.

And, of course, we voted for Petra! We look forward to visiting Jordan again, next time perhaps to see Petra again, more of Madaba and Amman, and the other parts of your country. We will certainly be in touch with yo when we do that!


~  Kathy Frankovic and Hal Glatzer

Good morning Lamees,

That was one of the best holidays we have ever had! This is because of:

The varied beauty of your country. The hospitality of every person we met. The feeling of safety and lack of threat everywhere. The organisation from Jordan Direct.

Everything worked perfectly. When we needed support Mohammed was there; when we needed time alone we had time alone. Cars arrived on time, hotels bookings were honoured, guides were available as required – absolutely no problems.

I think the decision to start in Madaba was for us a good one. A nice quiet introduction to Jordan rather than the big city of Amman. I know that I suggested hotels to you when I first contacted you – thank you for quietly suggesting other hotels. You were absolutely right in Madaba and the upgrade in Petra was a very pleasant surprise.

What was the best part of the holiday? It got better as we went south. Umm Quais and Jerash were good. Kerak, Mukawir and the countryside around Wadi Mujib, Dana/Wadi Hesa were better. Petra was astounding and Wadi Rum was unbelievable!!!

I know that every country has different attractions but there is so much in Jordan that it deserves more visitors! I will be passing your name on to all my friends and family – I hope you get some more reservations from them.

Thank you once again for organising such a wonderful week.

Best wishes to you all, Shukran cathiran,

~ John Pilley

Dear Lamees,

I have just returned to Luxembourg after a wonderful holiday. Jordan was definitely the best part of our trip ,Dana ,Petra and Wadi Rum were just fantastic. Thank you very much for organising this trip for both me and my son it is one of the best holidays we have had.

I would like to mention especially and to thank our driver Hitham (I hope the spelling is correct).He did everything possible for us to have a super visit to Jordan .His English is excellent and we really appreciated his knowledge of the history and culture of the country which helped to make our trip very interesting. At all times he was pleasant ,helpful and courteous and this we greatly appreciated. Please give him our best wishes.

We would like to return to Jordan and I will definitely contact you to organise our next trip. Thanks again for all your help.

Kind Regards,

~ Irene

Hi Lamees and Rana,

We had a wonderful holiday thank you to all involved and to Raed and our driver Zac.

Jordan is a beautiful country with lovely, friendly people and an amazing history.

Thanks again.

Kind Regards,

~Sue Mannering

Dear Mr Raed,

This is just to repeat what we said to you at Queen Alia Airport: We had a wonderful time in Jordan, thanks to Jordan and Jordan Direct! Everything worked out just fine! Even the splitting up of our itinerary that you did for us was just perfect. Whenever anyone of our friends plans to go to Jordan, which I can highly recommend, and thinks of doing it with a travel agency I will definitely suggest Jordan Direct. We both wish you and your lovely country all the very very best and many clients as satisfied as we are!


~ Otto and Margit Gutmensc
