My driver Basel was exceptional. His car was clean and knew a lot about Amman and Petra. He was very helpful and kind. The tour was great and so was the local tour guide in Petra. Thanks to Basel and Ziad tours

It was quite an expensive experience, but the whole pack it's worth. I felt save and everything really professional. From the driver, Aiman. Really nice, very in time por my pick up, good chat during the 3h drive to Petra and very communicative.
Petra is worth to go, the restaurant inside it wasn't great to be fair, open buffet, but in this cultural journey the food was like a hotel food... It was cheaper and better have some snack or traditional food in some of the tents around Petra.

Btw, that was a day tour and it was short... hightly recommend to do two days tour if you have the time.

Thanks for the experience!

First let me begin with what an amazing customer service from Zain travel. I was fortunate enough to have (Bassam ) as my private driver. Since I had several destinations planned he was with us for all five days.

Bassam was amazing, he went out of his way to show up at my hotel and go over my itinerary one day before all my tours and gave me suggestions on how to get more out of our experience. Boy was he right. Not only did we enjoy our trip, he gave us a history brief as we drove thru this amazing and beautiful country, introduced us to great coffee and suggested a Turkish bath. Which was amazing. Especially after a long and enjoyable walk of Petra.

Please if you are considering a tour go with zaid tours and request Bassam, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

We did Dead Sea, Mt, Nebo, Jarash, wadi rum, Petra, little Petra, The citadel, Amman sight seeing tour,

Do not expect your drive to be an actual guide!

My driver, who never introduced himself, was nearly an hour late picking me up. it took the hotel calling to get an answer as to what was going on. Tour was advertised as having an English speaking driver, however, mine was not, in fact he didn't speak at all the 3 hours to Petra or back. We never stopped at Little Petra (as advertised). Additionally, he smoked in the car during the ride, even though it was marked as non-smoking. I learned nothing about the journey or what we were driving through to and from Petra. Once arriving at Petra, the local guide , "Sully" was amazing! He told me everything about the location and answered all my questions. He truly made up for my ride there!!

A guide really can make your tour and vacation either wonderful or horrible. Unfortunately mine was the latter and took away from the experience to be had and was an overpriced 6 hour car ride.

I am so sorry about what you mention. Please note all our drivers speak good proper English and they are not guides. They reply according to clients interest,as some clients are not talkative and would rather have a more silent drive. As for smoking it is not allowed to smoke inside the car even if the driver smokes. The Petra classic visit is done with a licensed guide and we are glad you enjoyed it.

As a world traveler I've seen quite a few amazing places in my life but I must say Petra is definitely one of the most special ones. It compares to when I first visited Angkor Wat and what I imagine Machu Picchu will be like. It's a world like no other- and if you're reading this then you are probably interested in going. And to that I say just GO! You will not be disappointed. I went solo along with my guide Sami Mohammad Al-Nawafleh. It was absolutely astounding the amount of knowledge he had of the place! He explained to me how he was an archaeologist at the site for several years and it definitely showed. I got extremely lucky to have him guide me, very pleasant, down to earth, and often funny! I highly recommend you spend the cash on this trip and request him as a guide if possible. You will not be let down.

ENJOY!

I was picked up by Waseem and Kaslar who took me up to Petra. The trip was three hours to drive to the site and then the same back. Kaslar was a great guy and explained everything I asked him on the way.

The trip was well organised and everything was explained to me before I went into the site.

You will need to give plenty of time and there is plenty of walking to do so take sensible shoes and be relatively active. Take a bottle of water if not two as you’re in a desert!

Lunch was provided buffet style at a local restaurant serving local foods.

Great experience, very glad I did it. Thank you!

Had a day in Jordan and this tour was the perfect way to do a trip to Petra.
Driver and guide were professional and informative, and all services were as advertised.
Excellent value!
