Petra

Petra, the Rose-Red City, was the impressive capital of the Nabataean kingdom whose ruins remained hidden to most of the world until the Swiss explorer, JL Burckhardt, disguised as an Arab scholar, infiltrated the city in 1812. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Meet your private guide at the site and hike or ride a horse down to the entrance of the Siq, a long, winding sandstone canyon that leads to the Treasury. The tour continues to the Street of Facades, the Roman Theater and the Royal Tombs.

Our consultant with Jordan Select (Ms Suha) arranged an excellent 2-week tour for our first visit to Jordan with a private car & driver. We rarely use agencies, preferring to plan our trips to suit ourselves. However - following such great Tripadvisor reviews we felt we should give the Agency a try! Presently in Aqaba, we have seen most of the important Jordanian sites and will return to Amman for our last few nights. Hotels they chose worked well, most were geared to large bus tours which didn’t impact on our stay. W were delightful ‘camps’ - glamping at its very best! The driver (Halil) was safe, courteous, always on time and we couldn’t fault him! Anyone who can cope with all the unmarked speed bumps without jeopardising the well-being of his passengers deserves a medal! The car was clean, modern and large enough to fit 2 suitcases in the trunk. His road safety awareness was excellent.

Safely back home and by now well back into our daily routines, I would like to take the opportunity to express our warmest gratitude, appreciation and respect, in the aftermath of our tour/trip to Amman & Petra. A great 'thank you' is in order to all of the people of 'Jordan select tours' whose team work has rendered our holiday trip unforgettable and a special mention to Ms Suha, for being so good and explanatory through the prodedure (prior to our arrival), but especially for choosing for us that amazing gem of theirs, working as a driver, part guide, part assistant, part friend/brother/host/ - you name it and he became it... We have had our quite big share of travelling around the world, and have had to charter touring agents' driving services, across the continents, but Mr Ibrahim Fakhoury is by far the top of the top [safest - most positive thinking - calmest - well informed/updated, most helpful and anticipating to each and every minor need/detail that might come up (with the list going on and on...)]. Trust Mr Ibrahim to be there on time, to humbly say he is not a guide but only a driver when - in fact- we have had professional guides that knew less or were not as updated as he was, trust him to respond professionally to unexpected occurrences [perfectly informative when the police had blocked/cordoned off his way into our usual meeting point and had to change our point, remaining absolutely effectively calm and with a problem solving disposition, when our tour car door was violently opened by a roaming retarded kid demanding charity, are only a few off-the-top-of-our-head examples]. We were so blessed to have him...! In an effort, however, to remove any possible doubt from my so positive feedback, as to its objectivity standards, and if I have to find fault with their services, I would only mention that, prior to our arrival in Jordan, we had not been told that it was absolutely necessary to be carrying with us a printed form of our covid health certification, as we wouldn't be let into the aircraft, for there was an Amman representative at our airport, just before the airport gate, not permitting anyone to board the plane, without the printed paper. Luckily, we had been tipped off about it online and we were carrying one...

We spent 1 1/2 days in Petra booked through Jordan Select Tours. Petra was fabulous! Jordan Select provided the absolute best experience possible! We were met at the airport and helped through the visa process. Then our driver, Hasan A., picked us up and drove us to Petra. He was an outstanding driver but also provided excellent background on the Jordanian culture. Samir was our guide in Petra on the 2nd day and was an excellent guide. If you are interested in visiting Jordan, this is the tour group for you!

I had a fantastic trip to Petra with Ahmad Albayaydah. He made sure I had enough cold water, provided Wi-Fi in the car, and connected me with a tour guide in Petra who walked me through the site and explained its history. He even took me on a small detour to Shobak castle! I’ll definitely seek out Jordan Select again the next time I’m in Jordan.

We had a wonderful experience with Ahmad Bayaydah from Jordan Selected Tours during our 2 days adventure in Jordan visiting Petra, Jerash and Dead Sea. Ahmad was super responsible and helpful resolving all questions and issues during the trip as well as providing a lot of interesting facts and details along the route. His car is in a very good condition and we were provided with water, juices, local phone and WiFi along the way. I strongly recommend Ahmad as a driver and guide in Jordan!

First I want to say that this tour company went above and beyond in helping to design the perfect trip for 4 people. They were so accommodating with our requests and itinerary. As it turns out, our trip was to commence just in front of the covid-19 epidemic and 3 of my friends decided to bail on my at the last minute, but as this was a trip I had planned and my heart was already in Jordan--I went solo! Jordan Select was VERY accommodating again and made the arrangements for me to travel solo and have the most extraordinary experience. I would do it again and encourage others to do this too. Solo was fantastic--my personal guide and driver was fantastic, each of the site guides at Petra and Wadi Rum were amazing. The van was roomy and clean, and Firas was my wonderful driver and had perfect english and good knowledge about the US, Jordan, the world. He was a good conversationalist and led me through the experience like a kind brother. To say the least--I'm completely in love with Jordan and hope to return. I will use Jordan Select again....if they will have me!!!

Arrived in Amman where we were met by a Jordan Select agnet, driver and car. Toured Amman, Jerash, Ajlun, Madaba, Mt Nebo, Shobuck Castle, 2 Days in Petra, Jeep tour of Wadi Rum and last night on the Dead Sea. We had an excellent driver and vehicle. He was knowledgeable, friendly, flexibile and helpful. Our hotels were very good to excellent with good locations. Time at each site was great, not rushed. This was a low season tour so crowds were small, weather was good for the time of year. This is the second tour I've had with Jordan Select. I highly recommend them and would definitely use them again.

Firstly, I can not praise Piruza at Jordan Select enough. She worked tirelessly to help plan and then continued with the same level of support throughout our six day tour. The hotels selected were good to great, the only difference being the staffing in them. Our driver, Monther, is a keeper. His efficient yet friendly manner allowed us all to relax on the long road trips between sites and he was an excellent restaurant guide! The service where we were met at the airport (airside) was wonderful as when you’re travelling to a new country it’s always a little daunting. Our first hotel, The Boutique house in Amman was wonderful, rooms were sizeable, spotless and the staff were amazing. The next morning we hopped into the car, with wifi, and headed to Madaba and Mt Nebo. Stepping back to biblical times and in the footsteps of Moses was awe inspiring. Our guide, Ziad, in Petra, was full of knowledge and kept us moving but seemingly without hurry. When he left us, long after the allocated time, he suggested a worthwhile exploration for the day with the words “and that will be enough for you”. In total we spent a glorious 7.5 hours exploring and it was “enough”. We couldn’t believe there was so much to do there. Could have easily spent two more days there, Staying out in the desert at Wadi Rum was amazing, we were away from most of the camps and the three hour tour Takes in places that can be a bit crowded and litter strewn, but our driver took us to a spot well clear of others, we collected dried wood and built a fire, enjoying wonderful tea whilst watching the sunset. We stayed in the luxotel Bubble hotel, in our own little Martian pods! We loved tramping around in the Bedouin cloaks that kept us toasty warm in the desert night. The SKY is unbelievable. Our final night was at the Dead Sea, we stayed at the Hilton and this was a beautiful way to end our trip, floating in the sea and then a mud bath. Just wished I realised how cold the shower was going to be... I’d have used slightly less mud! Thank you Piruza, thank you to all the Jordan Select team.

Easyjet now offer 'cheap' flights to Jordan and having planned to go there for years, it gave us the impetus to go. However I knew I would need some assistance once there. We are in our 50's and were taking our 20 year old 'children' with us. Having looked at TA , I chose Jordan Select and could not be more pleased. They were very helpful in planning our itinerary, and allowed me to 'swap in' items I wanted to do - i.e. we wanted a 5 star hotel for our first night, and with a few tweaks I had planned my perfect trip. I paid the 25% deposit by credit card, and kept my fingers crossed that I had not sent my money in to an abyss ( its always a risk I know ). It was fantastic that when we got off the plane and in to the airport there was someone standing with a card with my name - even before immigration - to wizz us through the fast track, and to our driver/guide in the car park. From then on everything was perfect. Jordan is a fabulous country, and the tour we had, allowed us to see the best of it. We agreed our starting times for each morning and had our private guide help us from place to place - Alaa recommended where to eat, who the best local guide was, and what not to miss. If you have a desire to go to Jordan , go with it, and Jordan Select will ensure that you get to see the best of it.
