Ms Tucci told me everything was PERFECT. Thanks a lot!

At the moment we have a 100% satisfaction by clients, some of them were really enthusiastic and I’m very happy about it!

Sincerely,

Myriam, Italy

Thanks very much for our hospitality in Jordan 3 weeks ago. I wish you all the best in New Year and looking forward to coming again to Jordan.

Boris, Russia

I wanted to take this opportunity to convey my utmost appreciation of Mr. Ibrahem , who was my guide for the Jordan tour for the excellent services given during my tour. I have taken more than 60 trips in different parts of the world, but this tour he made it very special and enjoyable for every minute by taking care of my all opersonal needs being a pure vegetarian.He is very professional and very kind & courteous in dealing with the customers and I highly recommend him for all of your tours in your magnificent country.

He has made my Jordan tour as the best one out of all tours undoubtedly and I wish him my sinsere thanks and goodluck to him and his family!

Anand, Canada

The days in Jordan were very nice, the whole group did enjoy this trip. I want to give Jordan Select Tours a big compliment for organizing the dayprogram. From the moment we arrived everything was well taken care of.

Conclusion, with the help of Jordan Select Tours our Fam trip to Jordan has been as great success! Jordan is really something we can advise to our customers especially for our Incentive Department.

Inge, The Netherlands

About one week has passed since we got back to reality again. We are still overwhelmed by the fantastic arrangements you have created for us five. The journey became to an amazing adventure! Everything was so well arranged by you. We were met like VIP:s at the airport and was driven by the very,very nice Mohammad, who we had the pleasure to met once again when he drow us to Damascus. The day after our arrival we met the lovely Emad who took us further on. He was very concerning and openminded ,asked us all the time if we had any special wishes and gladly effected them if we had any. He was not only the talented driver he was our guide also during the trip south and fullfilled that task very well.
We also recommend the very nice guide we had at Petra. He was interested enough to learn our names, which is not very usual.

As we arrived in Syria Yaseen Allatif met us at the border. He assisted us through the border formalities and welcomed us to Syria with gifts and maps to us all. Then he accompanied us the whole way trough Syria and all the places we planned to see. He was a wonderful man, extremely talented in telling us all about the old places and the new Syria. He was really a perfect guide and a very nice companion. He escorted us to and inside the airport in Damascus, very concerning. We really recommend him to be used for other tourists. Please transfer our information to the Syrian Travel agency, Sherezade! In Syria the driver was Ahmad, who patiently waited for us in many places. He was also very nice although a bit absent in his mind, thinking of his newborn child 2 days before we met him. Despite this he fullfilled his mission with skilled driving and a good humour.

The journey has really lived up to our expectations except one thing. That was the accommodation, which exseeded all our expectations. From the wonderful rooms in Amman and Petra “Guest House”, the latter not at all a guest house but a luxorious hotel perfectly situated and comfortable , to the amazing hotels in Damascus and Aleppo as taken from Thousand and one Night!! We have never in our lives stayed at any hotel like these, with such an athmosphere from the 17th century and stylish decoration. We were so happy and talked many times about the wonderful Manar who had arranged it. So the accommodation was really one of the greatest highlights on our journey!
We will also remember all kindness, friendliness and concern from everybody we met both in Jordan and Syria. I hope we can pay a new visit to this region some time in the future. I will also tell you that we have really recommended your agency and specially you to our friends. Many are very interested to go, some of them very seriously.

Now we have our memories left and all the pictures and a video, which I have started to edit.
We all wish you good luck in the future and bring you a deep gratefulness!

With much love and regards,

Åke, Sweden

I just wanted to drop you a note to say 1 million thank you for all your help in making this holiday absolutely magnificent. Your flexibility, great advise, patience and perseverance made the whole experience extraordinary and the whole travel experience effortless. Suheil was brilliant, very polite, flexible and very knowledgeable. This proved to be extremely helpful as we clearly needed guidance. The airport staff were also lovely, very welcoming and very helpful. I have to say that this has in no doubt been the most stress free holiday we have ever had. I will definitely pass on your details to anyone who is considering going to Jordan on holidays.

Many many thanks again… We will be back!

All the best!

Galia, Canada

I want to thank you because clients have been very,very, very satisfied for all your services, and over all of Mr.Moahmed, their guide, professional and friendly.

All hotels have been so beatiful, over their immagination. Just a little note for Aquaba, because on Fridays many persons from Arabia come to hotel to spend their weekend, so the stay in Raddison is not so quite and relaxing. But anyway all was fantastic , also the weather!

Thanks for all, hope to contact you soon.

My best regards.

Giuliana, Italy

I (and the whole group) would like to thank you for the tour you organised for us in Jordan. Everything was ok, a very good guide, superb hotels, a fine program, good assistance at the airport, a beautiful country and very kind people. We will recommend your organisation by our friends who want to visit Jordan!

Kind regards.

Charlotte, Belgium

Dear Yasmeen

Just wanted to write and thank you for the trip you organised for us to Jordan. It was the holiday of a lifetime – such a beautiful country. We know we could have spent many more weeks exploring such a beautiful place but for a few short days we were transported to another world.

We particularly enjoyed our trip to Petra and really have no words to describe the feeling of awe the place evoked. We also met the author of “I married a Bedouin” Marguerite van Geldermalsen who was in the valley that day at her market stall.

We enjoyed our jeep trip in Wadi Rum and our cup of tea in a Bedouin tent. So many memories of Jordan.

Once again, thanks for all your hard work – the itinerary, the driver and your representative at the airport all made a most amazing holiday.

Thank you

David and Sue Hogg

We like to thank Jordan Select for arranging a great holiday for us. We had an excellent time in Jordan and enjoyed the whole itinerary. Our driver, Sufyan, is excellent and we appreciate his help when we are in Jordan. Everything went smoothly with no major hiccups. He drove safely (the whole time), answered a lot of our questions and was responsive to our requests.

We will definitely recommend your group and Sufyan to our other friends in Hong Kong!

Regards,

Leo and Noel, Hong Kong

Thank you so much for taking care of my friend Clair and her husband a couple weeks ago. They gave rave reviews about your company’s performance and specifically mentioned how helpful and professional you are.

I am sure she will refer more people from the UK to you for your excellent service.

Sincerely,

Neal, UK

I’m back to reality, meaning work =(((( which is hard after my great vacation in Jordan…

Hope everything is fine with you!!!!

Just wanted to drop you a quick email to Thank you very much for the great service!!!!!!

The tour was definitely Awesome!!!! since the moment we arrived to the airport until the moment we left Jordan everybody was very friendly, professional and helpful; definitely the service attitude of all the people involved in our tour was the highlight.

Truth to be told, the tour exceeded our expectations by far… =)))) The guides were excellent, most of the hotels were great, maybe the only one that was not very good was the one in Petra (the AC did a lot of noise and didn’t work very well)….

I want to thank/recognize in particular for Haytham services, he was always very respectful, helpful and veryyyyyyyy patient with us, very professional… =))) Please give him our regards and our thanks again.

I’ll recommend your company’s services to my friends, you can count on that…. and if I go back to Jordan or any other country around there, I’ll contact you! …

Lourdes, USA

Well what can I say – we had a delightful 4 days in Jordan – it’s a wonderful place and had such an interesting and good time.

There were so many good points – from the exhilarating 4×4 ride in Wadi rum to floating in the Dead sea. Not forgetting the highlight which was of course Petra – doing this by night was extra special , we looked forward to seeing it by day – which was just as awe inspiring. Mansouir (our driver) was nothing short of excellent – co-ordinating our tour and ‘fitting in’ all the sights, in fact he almost became one of the family. I must congratulate you on the choice of hotels, they got better as we progressed, and the Movenpick at the Dead Sea was incredible – we were sorry it was only one night and wished it were two.

As Christians the visit to Mt Nebo and Bethany meant so much.

Thanks again for arranging a wonderful holiday we had a great time.

DAVE, USA

We are back home safely and before I start to enjoy the memories I want to thank you again for your contribution to making our holiday so perfect. The arrangements were excellent, meeting you was a joy and Ibrahim was perfect in every way – a gentleman who took great care, met our needs in every way and added real value with his information, explanations and thoroughness. If ever you need a reference please do not hesitate to use us!

Kindest regards, also to Ibrahim please!

Esta, Petro, Yolanda, Friedel and Liezel, South Africa

We have just come back to Italy after our holiday in Jordan. Everything has been beautiful and perfect, the tour and our staying at Aqaba. I and my family thank you for all your work! In particular we want you to know that our driver Ibrahim has been really very kindly and professional with us. Please send him our greetings!

Isabella and family, Italy

We had a fantastic time, thank you so much! I have been recommending Jordan and Jordan Select Tours to all our friends and family since we got back. I think Petra was the highlight but the Movenpick at the Dead Sea was just fantastic. We also enjoyed the hubbly bubble shiska pipes! I think i’ll get one for the house…

Again thanks very much for everything, the ground agents you use are great. They couldn’t do enough for us and it made the trip very relaxing not having to worry about any of the normal travel hassles. A special thank you should go to our driver for the week, Mansour Mansour. He was an absolute gentleman and he struck the right balance between chatting to us and tellnig us about Jordan and leaving us to sleep on the journeys! He really was a lovely guy and we couldn’ t speak highly enough of him.

Finally, one more big thank you for everything!

Paddy & Caoimhe, UK

I just returned and I must say that you company did a fabulous job at putting the tour together. What an incredible place, Jordan. My driver, Ebad, made Jordan come to life. He is to be commended and you are very lucky to have him on your team! Please say hello for me when you see him.

Again, thank you so much!

Donna, UK

First we would like to thank you being so accommodating with us when we missed our flight. We really appreciate it and you were great to work with on scheduling and rescheduling our itinerary. Thank you so much!

Our driver, Badder was great! He was always on time to pick us up at all our hotels and sites. He even took the time out to write down and teach us some Arabic words and phrases. He also did a great job to make sure we experienced the food and culture in Jordan. Which we really appreciated! He also knew great places for us to stop and take pictures which he would do so on our drive to our destinations and would always offer to take pictures for us so we could be in them. He did a great job!

Bryan and Celia, UK

Having been in the Travel Business myself, I know how important constructive feed-back is, but in this case we genuinely cannot think of any constructive criticism, except to say that the world does not know enough about what you have to offer….more advertising!!!

Our drivers were Hitham Khaleel and Esam and they were both outstanding. We cannot compliment them enough….Well informed, helpful, good driving, and easy to get along with. A great support in the matter of the swallowed Credit Card!! A real pleasure and people you can be proud of. Very comfortable vehicles too! We had two guides as well, Ma’moun at Petra – a MINE of amazing information, and we felt it a priviledge to be on the receiving end of all that knowledge. Beauty at Jerash was just as pleasant, and gave us lots of interesting insights into the site. Airport assistence was spot on and VERY helpful….what would we have done without you???? You obviously have all the right contacts, Mr. Zghoul, and we were impressed to see you helping the two ladies in distress as well!!

The accommodation was amazing, and we felt it was lucky that we got it at the END of the tour otherwise we would have been spoilt for the rest! All hotel staff very pleasant and helpful, rooms and service without fault.

Our overall impression of the tour was absolutely excellent! Mr. Mahommed and Jasmine were extremely helpful and accommodating in the matter of changing our schedule and we were most grateful, as it would have been terrible to miss the Dead Sea!!!! Many thanks for the No Charge change to the Kempinsky!

And so – ten out of ten!!!! We cannot think of even a tiny fault!!!! Thanks again for everything and we will certainly be raving about Jordan to whoever we tell about out trip.

Kindest regards to all,

Jenny, South Africa

My clients are back are really happy about their holiday in Jordan ;)) they forgot to fill in the satisfaction form, but in any case I want to let you know that everything was excellent and thank you again 😉 The guide, tours, transfer and hotels were really good.

Hoping to work with you again in the near future 😉

PS: they want to come back again in Jordan

Laura, Romania

We are now back in Australia after a far too short a trip in your country. you asked us to complete a questionnaire on our trip. We have searched everywhere but have not been able to find it. I will however try to guess what is in it and give the following answers.
1. arrival process. – Excellent, Everything was handled efficiently and effectively with the minimum of fuss and the briefing on our schedule was appropriate.
2. Driver – Both Esam and Samir were excellent. They were good fun to be with and very engaging in conversations. They were always on time and waiting for us at the required time. The cars were clean and very comfortable
3. Accommodation – The Crowne Plaza deserves an excellent but as we had had some really great accommodation in Egypt we downgraded it slightly mainly because. the room size was slightly smaller than our other hotels but the view from our room just breathtaking. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and we feel that this is the only place we would stay should we return.
4. The guide into Petra.- I know this was out of your control but he was excellent. Carol was not feeling well and he made sure that we walked at her pace and made the walk in as special as possible. He then took Carol all the way back to the hotel. This was above what we could reasonably have expected.
5. Overall – We have nothing but good things to say about the entire trip. It was perfect from start to finish. We would certainly recommend your company to others travelling to the region and would also use your company again should we return.
The only downside was the trip was far too short. I could have spent another day in Petra itself and reading your brochure there are now many other places that are on our list to see.
T hope this answers most of what the questionnaire is looking for. If i have left anything out then e-mail me back and I will answer.

Thanks you again for being part of a very special experience!

Keith & Carol, Australia, Mariangela

Dear Elin,

I would like to congratulate your organization for the wonderful time we had in Jordan earlier this month! Everything was perfect and well planned. The hotels were of first quality and both the driver and the tour guide were very helpful and professional!

I dare saying that everything exceeded our expectations!

Vincenzo Sinisi

Finally, I am back to Brasil, I arrived yesterday! Thanks for the trip in Jordan. We had a wonderful time there! Everything was perfect fur us! Nice manager and transportation from the airport to the hotel in Amann. The hotels are excellent, the day in the royal diving club in Aqaba is a dream, I really recommend it! Also the hotel in Wadi Musa, Amra Palace ( very nice staff and great Turkish bath! Wonderful sight to Petra!). The driver/guide Juma was very careful/cautious and very kind, he also knows everything about everything, so he could give us a lot of information about our curiosities. We had a great time with him and also inside Petra and Wadi Rum!

Everything was excellent! I really recommend your very friendly tour! I will write to Jordan jubilee and to trip advisor.

Thank you very much for this!

Suzana

Many thanks to you and all the staff for helping us have such a memorable holiday in Jordan. We came back with very fond memories of the country and its people. In particular, a big thanks to Ala. I think having a good driver makes all the difference. His sensitivity and local interest made a big impression on us. He certainly helped us understand the people and culture on a more detailed level and we particularly appreciated the efforts he made with suggestions for sights and especially with local guides, all of which were excellent.

Best wishes,

John Ford

Hello Mr.Kiswani,

This is the greetings from a Chinese tourist who has just experienced 3 days fabulous Jordan tour. The gorgeous landscapes made the 3-day-tour an everlasting memory which can not be erased in my mind. Last but not the least the professional tour guide job from Aziz Copty is the most brilliant point in the process! He did a great help for us to know and experience the Jordan culture as we will tell what happened in Jordan to every Chinese people. I wish I would come back to Jordan and at that time I will also chose Jordan Select as my partner!

Thanks million to your company and Aziz again!

Stephen

I (and the whole group) would like to thank you for the tour you organised for us in Jordan. Everything was ok, a very good guide, superb hotels, a fine program, good assistance at the airport, a beautiful country and very kind people. We will recommend your organisation by our friends who want to visit Jordan!

Kind regards

Charlotte, Belgium

Jordan Select Tours is the best way to see the country of Jordan. We still can’t believe we went from the north to the south of the whole country. From the very beginning, JST made our trip in this country so easy. We were met at the airport before passport control and led through the controls very quickly and easily. Then we met our driver, Firas Ahmed. He was the most important part of the success of our trip. We drove through all kinds of weather: mostly sunshine, but then lightning, hard rain, fierce wind, and a blinding sandstorm. Throughout all of this, Firas was the safest driver we have ever had in our travels. Safety is of utmost importance and something we don’t take for granted. He was so knowledgeable about his beloved country. We had come to Jordan to see Petra, and it didn’t disappoint us. The desert of Wadi Rum was breathtaking, and we were glad Firas found us an enclosed jeep since it was very windy and cold while we were there. We spent our last night in Jordan at the Dead Sea. We had gale force winds, but it only added to the adventure. This will be a trip we will remember for a long time to come.

Thank you Firas! Thank you Jordan Select Tours!

Craig & Teddi Baumgartner, Kailua, Hawaii

Hello, Marina!

I am writing this email to thank you all out there in Jordan who helped me with the tour and for giving me such a wonderful time in these 4 days I spent in Jordan! Peter, the driver, works in a extremely professional manner, as well as being a great person and a great character.

I really enjoyed my trip and for sure you will be well recommended to anyone willing to go to Jordan.

Thank you!

Daniel

I wanted to send a quick email to say thank you very much for organising our fantastic trip to Jordan, we had the most amazing time. Everything was perfect from meeting the representatives at the airport to everything in the itinerary.

Our driver Younes was absolutely fantastic and it was a pleasure to spend the week with him.

I will be putting a 5 star review on trip advisor today and will recommend you to anyone and everyone I speak to.

Thank You

 

 

Freddie
I am writing to say how much we enjoyed the holiday in Jordan. Thank you so much for all your help and advice prior to the trip. The holiday was truly magnificent.
 
We also want to let you know that our driver Wesam looked after us really well and became a very good friend. He was always very helpful and we really enjoyed his company during our time in Jordan. 
 
Thank you again for all your help. We will definitely tell all our friends and relatives that Jordan is a wonderful place to visit and will also recommend Jordan Select Tours to them.
 
David Early

We are back home and had a beautiful day together with your guide and driver in an excellent car in Jordan. We had an unforgettable experience on this trip.

Many thanks and best regards

 

Anton

I am writing to you today to commend you for the services provided to my partner and I during our recent trip (14th July 2013 – 21st July 2013) to Jordan.

As first-time visitors to the country, and an Arab state in general, we were nervous and apprehensive regarding what to expect. However, upon meeting our driver & guide (Wadji) at the airport we immediately felt safer and welcomed to the country, allowing us to relax and enjoy our time to the full extent. On the roads, we were nervous as to the different style of motoring we experienced in comparison to that of the UK. However, as a driver Wadji was courteous, professional and reassuring, making us constantly feel safe whether it be on a city street, highway or desert road. In regards to the service we received, Wadji was incredibly polite and chivalrous – always opening the door for my partner, and asking how we were. He was always willing to go out of the way for us, putting our trip first-and-foremost to any personal issues he may have had, to help make our experience within Jordan the best it can be. Throughout our journey’s he also displayed vast knowledge of the country, detailing the history and landmarks of the area we were passing, answering any questions we had. I can safely say that without the service, professionalism and enthusiasm Wadji provided during our stay, our holiday in Jordan wouldn’t have been the same.

We were also very happy with the service and choice of excursions we received as part of our package, booked through “Mosaic Holidays” in the United Kingdom. All the guides were highly knowledgeable about the area and provided local stories and myths that helped to set a more personal picture about the site. I also feel the choices of excursions (Jerash, Ajlun, Amman, Petra, Madaba, Kerak, Mt Nebo) gave a deep and complex view of the many characteristics of Jordan, allowing us to experience all aspects of the country.

I would very much appreciate it if you could pass on the comments to Wadji and I’d like to take the time to thank you for the allowing us to make the most of the opportunity we received in Jordan, and we certainly look forward to visiting and using your company again.

Best wishes,

Steven Errington

We are sending this email to thank you for organising our recent trip to Jordan and Jerusalem. From the beginning, Diala Ayoubi provided prompt advice and assistance with the organisation of the itinerary and accommodation. She provided us with a number of alternatives and some extra activities that we could choose. After we decided on the itinerary it was booked for us and we were kept fully informed as to what we needed to do. Because of Diala the organisation of this trip was hassle-free we would like to thank her for her support, advice, and professionalism.

On arriving in Jordan it was great to be met at the airport in order to double check our itinerary and then meet our driver for the trip.

We enjoyed everything that we did and the accommodation was excellent. One of the main reasons that our trip was such a success was because of our driver and guide Yousef. He always ensured that the arrangements were finalised by checking the accommodation as we arrived, calling guides and activity organisers well before we arrived to make sure that there were no hidden problems. He made good suggestions throughout the trip for additional stops and things to do. He often put himself out to ensure that we did everything that was planned and nothing was trouble for him to do. Yousef personalised the trip by taking us to local food outlets to ensure that we sampled traditional foods of Jordan. He became a friend and we were sorry to say goodbye at the end of the trip. We would highly recommend him to any other travelers coming to Jordan.

Yousef organised the local guides and when we spoke with other travelers we considered ourselves lucky as the guides that we had were excellent; something the other tourists did not agree on. This was due to Yousef’s experience and contacts and knowledge of which guides were good and who he wouldn’t use.

Once again we would like to thank Diala, Yousef and Jordan Select Tours for organising a fantastic holiday. You have a beautiful country and we have already recommended family and friends to make sure they go and visit.

Michelene and Bruce Handley

Having returned home to England and had time to think back to our wonderful holiday in Jordan, I want to give you feedback on our tour.

The entire tour was extremely enjoyable. Booking it through Jasmine Salim was very clear and straightforward. Arrangements and the various options for payment were explained and payment itself was a simple process. When I needed to change our overnight accommodation at short notice on one occasion, your office staff were very helpful and met my request promptly and to my complete satisfaction.

Our driver Mohammed was excellent from start to finish. He always arrived promptly to pick us up. He was polite, very informative about local sites, local customs and traditions, and made sure we had knowledgeable guides on pre-arranged tours. His car was comfortable and clean. We felt safe driving with him and also leaving luggage and souvenirs for safekeeping with him. I would strongly recommend to friends and family who arrange tours through Jordan Select that they ask you to assign Mohammed to be their driver. If I book future tours in Jordan with you, I shall ask for Mohammed to be my driver. He is a great credit to your company. I am sorry that I did not make a note of our driver, Mohammed’s, second name. I know you have more than one driver called Mohammed as I met another who was driving for some friends who had also booked a tour through Jordan Select. Will you please make sure that my comments about our tour and about our driver get back to the man who drove for us on our tour from 8 July to 15 July 2013.

I shall post a review of my tour with on Trip Advisor and shall give you a very strong recommendation. I enjoyed the tour very much and shall recommend your services to friends and family. I know of at least one friend who is right now planning a tour in Jordan and shall give her your contact details.

Thank you, and thanks to Mohammed, for making our holiday something we shall remember for many many years.

 

John Middleton
 It’s taken a while but I have managed to finally get some feedback from a few members of the group who recently went to Jordan.
They have all reported that they had a fantastic trek and that the hotels and services that were provided by your company were excellent.
I would also like to mention on behalf of Aston Garcia Tours that your pre-tour services in leading up to this tour were very good with instant responses to our correspondence and we would like to thank you for taking care of our clients and for providing them with a memorable experience in your country. We would not hesitate to use your services again.
Kind regards,
Keith

I thought that we should write you an email thanking you for the wonderful time we had on our 5 day private tour of Jordan.

The booking experience was very smooth thanks to Elisa Papi who made the booking easy for us. Even with the great difference in the time between Canada and Jordan, she was always prompt in returning the information we needed to choose your company to provide the tour.

Our tour would not have been near as enjoyable as it was if it wasn’t for our guide/driver.
He was absolutely fantastic! The transportation he provided was always clean, comfortable and his driving was always respectful of the laws of Jordan and made us feel very safe with him in control of the car.

He was always on time and, with his guidance, the tour went very smoothly. His knowledge in all things Jordanian was very helpful and I believe this made our trip even more enjoyable.

He also gave us extra valuable advice ranging from restaurants to eat in and shops to look for gifts. I think he saved us from having any problems or disappointments.

He made us feel very comfortable by lending us a cell phone that we could use to call him at any time if we needed help in any manner.

Because of our experiences with the people in your company, I feel happy in recommending your company to friends who will be traveling to Jordan in the future.

We will someday return to Jordan and use the services of your company again.

Thank you again,

James and Renata Ritter

We wish to express our appreciation for providing us with an enjoyable and memorable experience.

Thanks also to Hind and Elisa for their assistance.

Best Regards,

Tony and Elena From Australia

Keep thinking about our special time in Jordan and finally have had a chance to write and thank you and send in my feedback regarding our driver. We really appreciated his reliable, knowledgeable and efficient service on our trip – we remember fondly his efforts on our behalf which enabled us to try great food, explore new areas and have a relaxing and interesting visit to Jordan. As we had limited time, we were very pleased with the personalised service offered by Jordan Select Tours.

We also cannot speak highly enough about our tour guide for the day in Petra (July 6). Unfortunately, I cannot remember his name – but I think it might have been Omar (?) – he was a highly knowledgeable archaeologist and he recommended a documentary about Petra that he was involved with. I wish I had written down the details. If you know his name we would appreciate the information.
All the best,

Cathy Killen

I was on a holiday to Jordan (Amman, Petra and Dead Sea) with my family from Dec 25th to Dec 28th and all my arrangements were managed by your company. Mr. Walled was assigned to us to take us and show us around these places and I have to say that he has been the most wonderful person cum tour guide. He was extremely friendly, took time to show us all the important things, assisted us wherever we needed assistance and never hesitated to cater to any request we made. I have traveled to many places around the world with many tour companies, but I have rarely come across such a professional and well-organised tour operator like Jordan Select Tours and Mr. Walleed.

 

I would certainly recommend both Jordan Select Tours and Mr. Walleed to my friends and family should they ever plan to visit Jordan.

 

Thanks and all the best.

Best Regards

We are soon ending our trip in Jordan.  We just got back from Wadi Mujib and absolutely loved it – it is such a beautiful and unique place. We are sad that we will be leaving this great country!  I am at the hotel and have a little time to rest so I wanted to send you an e-mail and just thank you and your whole Jordan Select Tours team for setting up such a wonderful tour.  We could not have asked for a better experience.

While at the office, you asked us about Mohammed Salameh and how he was as a tour guide.  We did not have much of a chance to respond so I wanted to give you more details now.  As we said beforehand, Mohammed was a great guide!  Samuel and I have had guided tours in many places throughout the world, and I can honestly say that Mohammed was the best guide that either of us have had.  He always arrived on time, brought us to all of the great places and was incredibly knowledgeable about Jordan and all the sites.  He was also just really good company – he is a friendly, kind and smart person.  When we recommend Jordan Tours to our friends, we will recommend that Mohammed be their guide.  I cannot imagine having anyone better than him as a guide.

Thanks again for setting up this tour.  Whenever I make it back to Jordan, I will be sure to let you know and set up another tour!

Jackson

I send this message to congratulate you on all the services that Meritxell and me enjoyed during our holiday in Jordan, Thank´s a lot.

Also I want to explain to you, that in Jerash we didn’t need a guide, so Mohammed Kiswani returned to me 30 JD, for this reason, he doesn´t have any receipt from the guide in Jerash.

Also, I want to remark that Mohammed was very friendly and professional whit Meritxell and me.

Mohammed gave me a mobile phone to speak in Jordan, this detail was very important for me, because in all moments ( 24 hours)Mohammed was for our disposition. Please take this detail into consideration this for recognition and say thank´s a lot to Mohammed.

 

We enjoyed a lot, and we hope one day return to this beatiful, amazing and friendly country Jordan.

 

Best regards.

 

 

Meritxell and Carlos Iván.

I am finishing my tour of Jordan today which was organised through your company. I wanted to take the opportunity to express my thanks for the tour. Your driver was an excellent tour guide & was always willing to meet my needs & was very knowledgeable about the sights of Jordan & the best places to go. He was always timely & a safe driver. I have traveled to many countries & I found this tour and the services to be one of the best. I would choose your company if ever I was to visit Jordan again & I would recommend your company to my friends who want to travel to Jordan.

Regards,

Peter Burford

We had a fantastic time and Ra’ed (our guide) was great and really made it special.
Many thanks for organising the trip.

Regards,

Paddy

Let me introduce myself. I am Sarala Unni ,Sunil’s mother. My son was the one who was communicating with you throughout regarding our trip. But I thought I should thank you personally.

It had long been my wish to visit Jordan. I travel quite a lot specially to places of historical interest. Since Sunil shares my love of the ancient world(he knows much more about it than I do) we sometimes do trips together. We have visited Egypt, Greece and Istanbul this way. When we visited Greece in 2006, we had drawn up an itinerary for Jordan as well. But we had to go personally to Delhi to get the visa. For a person living in the south of India ,going to the Capital Delhi is like going to another country! So we dropped the plan. By the time both of us thought of it again, 7 years had passed. We had so much wanted to visit Syria but God knows whether it will ever be possible. So we decided to go ahead with Jordan without any further delay. The visa regulations had relaxed by now.

We had some anxious moments with the US threatening to attack Syria but finally, we made it.

We are so glad we did the trip. We had a wonderful time. Your country is beautiful and so rich in tradition and history; your people are so warm and friendly; your food is simply delicious especially to a non-vegetarian like me!

We had consulted Trip Advisor before we selected our tour operator. Jordan Select has such wonderful reviews and we fully endorse them. You are really professional and the arrangements were excellent. I would like to thank you and the others in your Company who made our Jordan experience a wonderful one.

Warm regards

I can not say enough about the trip – it has exceeded all of my expectations.  The places were great, Mohammed arranged for rooms with a view, and food has been very delicious. I can not put into words how lucky I feel to have had Mohammed as my driver.  Mohammed has been amazing!!!!!  From the first moment at the airport, he greeted me with a huge smile.  As you know, I was hesitant to come as I was concerned about being American.  He immediately put me at ease.  He has been helpful beyond words and I always felt safe when I was with him.  I definitely made a new friend!  I will be very sad to say goodbye.  Zaid was my guide in Petra and was also fantastic!  He spent a lot of time telling me the history of Petra which made it even more beautiful.  I also felt very reassured being with him and have made a friend in him as well.

I can not say enough about how the people of Jordan have treated me – I will leave that for my recommendation, though.  It has been a blessing to have come on this trip and I feel very, very fortunate to have seen this place.  It ill be very hard to leave.

Thank you again and I thank your entire company for such an exciting and beautiful adventure!

I just wanted to let you know how much my husband and I enjoyed our trip to Jordan. Your itinerary was excellent and we feel like we saw many of Jordan’s historic sites. We also enjoyed our accommodations, and every hotel/resort we stayed in exceeded our expectations. We especially enjoyed the Petra Guest House!

I also want to compliment our driver Sayel. He was friendly, prompt and a very safe driver. He even arranged an additional tour so that we could visit the Jordan River and see where Jesus was baptized. He really played a big role in making sure we enjoyed our trip. He’s a wonderful person.

Thanks again for arranging a great trip for us!

Karen

This is to inform you that the tour was very enjoyable.

Mohammed the driver was very friendly and his English is good. He is very knowledgeable about Jordon and the various sights that we visited. I will definitely recommend Mohammed Sahameh and Jordon Select to others.

Holiday Inn resort was excellent.

Regards

Your driver assisted me with information about the places I visited.  He understood that we didn’t have to talk the whole journey.  He is an excellent driver and managed traffic and difficult roads.  He was punctual if not early and was ready to change plans when we had to avoid Kerak.

I was never worried about being overcharged for lunch or when shopping if he was present.  He has an excellent knowledge of English, allowing me to learn more about life in Jordan and its history than I could from any book.

He is an example of a well educated and extremely hospitable Jordanian.  I will recommend Jordan Select to all my friends and family in Manhattan New York City.  He is an asset to the company, worth more than you could ever pay for.

My friend, Mary Ann Kertesz, and myself have been touring Jordan, and we are at the end of our tour.   The itinerary that Ola put together for us was excellent, giving us a chance to visit all the various wonderful sites in Jordan.

Our driver, was an extremely careful and safe driver. He speaks very good English, so that we could communicate well with no misunderstandings. He was extremely thoughtful and would ask several times when we were traveling if we need to stop for bathrooms, or taking photos, etc. He has a good knowledge of Jordan and could answer all our questions, always called us, when we were at the sites to make sure all was OK.
I would highly recommend Jordan Select.

Thank you for showing us your country.

It took some time for emotions from our trip to Jordan to settle and London weather certainly played a role :-))

Prior to our departure to Amman, we knew that we will have a good time in Jordan but impressions of what we have seen went beyond any expectations. You have amazing country to rightfully be proud of!!

Every little bit of our journey was special. Starting with the exceptional service from Jordanian Royal Air and ending with lovely shops at the Amman airport. Everything in between was spectacular. I could go on and on numbering what we have seen and how impressed we were with Jarash, Petra, street food in Amman, mud and bathing at Dead Sea, sunset in desert, riding camels. That is actually what we do since our return to London and to Brussels respectfully. We cannot stop telling other people how beautiful Jordan is and how kind, generous and forthcoming its citizens are.

Our journey would not be as successful without your assistance and readiness to step in at any time to adjust programme to our needs and likening. From the very beginning of our email exchanges you acted like a professional, responding very quickly, regardless of office hours or time zones.  Although we have not met (pity!) I will continue to visualise you as a person perfect for the job that you have. Well done!

I would also like to extend our gratitude to both Bassel and Wael who proved not only to be great drivers but excellent companions as well. Their flexibility, kindness and assistance went beyond pure professionalism – it was a genuine wish to act as good hosts to your very special country.

We left Jordan uplifted, relaxed in good spirits and determined to go back again. Thank you once again for making it so.

Warm regards from gloomy, cloudy and fresh London,

Just wanted to say that we had a wonderful time in Jordan.
Your organisation was excellent and it was also a pleasure to meet with you.

A special thanks also goes to Saleh our guide. He was fun to be with and yet
extremely professional. Would you please pass on our thanks to him. I hope
he is acknowledged by the company for his commitment to the business.
Thank you once again. I hope we will visit with some friends one day again.

With best wishes,

My husband and I just returned from a vacation in Jordan organized by Jordan Direct Tours and wanted to let you know what a great experience we had with our driver, Younes Romman.  He was extremely friendly, punctual and knowledgeable.  He had wifi in his car (which we loved – we did need to check a few emails while we were on the road), as well as a ready supply of cold beverages and snacks.  His car was clean and comfortable.  He helped make our travel through Jordan one of the best vacations we’ve ever had.  We would highly recommend Jordan Select Tours – and Younes! – to anyone.

Sincerely,

Catherine Mannick

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and the staff at Jordan Select Tours who helped to make our one-week tour of Jordan (July 16-22, 2013) such an interesting and enjoyable experience.  In particular, I would like to say that Miss Diala Al Ayoubi was extremely helpful, courteous and patient with the queries that I made from the time I first contacted her.  In planning our trip, she responded to all of my questions and requests in a very timely and professional manner with clear explanations and good suggestions.  In addition, Mr. Qais Bader made good company with his friendly and professional way of getting us around Jordan.  He was quite knowledgeable of the sites that we visited and of Jordan as a whole.  He was more than willing and able to answer all the questions that we had about Jordan.

With regards to the tour itself, we found the sites that we visited fascinating and we were satisfied with the accommodation and meals that were provided.  We were happy to pay for guides at the sites that were not included in our tour package (Ajlun, the Citadel,  Mt. Nebo) but we were wondering if these could not have been included in the overall package, even at an increased price.  Also, I realize that tips to guides and others are completely up to the traveler, but we would appreciate having some guidelines of what is an appropriate amount.

Overall, our tour of Jordan left us with a very positive feeling and many good memories that we’ll hold for years to come.

Again thank you for providing us with a wonderful holiday in Jordan.

Kind regards,

As I touched on briefly in the handwritten document, our trip was great from start to finish.

We began in earnest to plan our trip in May 2012, and Diana was able to create an itinerary that we believed included everything we wanted to do/see in the short time we had to visit. We were sorry that we had to cancel last year, but we have seen that, had we traveled when originally scheduled, your guides would have kept us safe. It’s something we’ll remember on future trips!

This year, we worked with Iris Tan, and she was just as helpful as Diana had been. Every time we added or changed something on our itinerary, she was more than accommodating. We couldn’t have been more pleased with all she did for us, and we were extremely happy with each of the hotels she reserved for us.

Regarding Wesam — the three of us just hit it off, and he was so accommodating. For example, when I asked Wesam about a place I’d read about in the Royal Jordanian magazine during the flight to Amman, he took us there — and he didn’t have to do that. He is so easy to get along with, and he shares our sense of humor, which was such an unexpected pleasure. We feel very fortunate that we were matched up with him for the week! We had SO much fun together! He just took care of us the entire time we were in Jordan, and we feel we now have a friend in Jordan.

We were very happy with Mike, our guide in Israel, as well. He brought to life all the places we’ve learned about since we were little kids, and he was the perfect person to share our first visit to his country. He explained, he demonstrated, he made us think about where we were & the history behind what were seeing. Our driver, Mohammed, was equally as nice, and he navigated traffic with ease!

I’ve had the opportunity to travel internationally on a regular basis, and I have to tell you this is one of my favorite trips, due in large part to the staff at Jordan Select! I’m sure Virginia, who is well-traveled as well, would agree. When I tell friends about the trip, they’ve commented that I’m more enthusiastic in my details than they remember from other trips. I guess I’d have to agree. Both countries, and all the people we met, exceeded our expectations. It was an incredible journey!

Thanks so much for everything. We’ll be sure to tell people they need to come see Jordan!

 

Rosalie Walrack

Our decision to use Jordan Select Tours was initially based on the positive Tripadvisor reviews.  We worked exclusively with Elisa Papi in planning our trip to Jordan for the last week of September.  Elisa was extremely helpful and responsive to all questions and any changes to our itinerary.

We traveled to Jordan on a mixed trip to tour Wadi Rum and Petra as well as to visit relatives.  We were very pleased with all of the hotels suggested and booked in Amman and Petra.

We stayed at the Rahayeb Camp in Wadi Rum that included tents with attached bathrooms, which can come in very handy in the middle of the night.  This was our second stay in a camp in Wadi Rum, and I must say we did enjoy the atmosphere of our first camp best.  We stayed five years ago and it was called the Lawrence camp.  While the accommodations/tents and the food were nice at the Rahayeb Camp, after dinner it was off to bed.  During our previous stay at the Lawrence camp, after dinner the host sat around a campfire and visited with the guests and it was very entertaining.  After the lights were off guests could stay out under the stars and some even pulled their mattresses from the tents to sleep outside. I missed this interaction at the Rahayeb Camp.  However, if you desire a “hotel” room in the desert this is the camp for you.  We also rode camels from the camp back to our vehicle the next day and it was quite a fun experience.

We stayed at the Movenpick at Petra and this is a wonderful hotel.  Again, this was our second visit here and it was still as nice as it was five years ago.  Great staff, rooms, food and free wi-fi.

Petra is a place that everyone should experience and even though this was our fourth visit, it was still magical.  Select Tours arranged for a horse ride to the Siq and a guide for us.  This was the first time for this and, I would suggest, that the money spent on the horse ride would be best used at the end and to ride the horse out because by that time you are so tired from walking it’s hard to make that last walk up the final hill.  Be advised that everyone offering services at Petra, ie horse rides, carriage rides, guides, etc. expect tips.  The person guiding my horse kept telling me how much to tip him the entire ride.  He started out with “10 JDs or $10” and by the end it was “5 JDS or $5” tip.  If you don’t tip them what they want they will let you know they are not pleased.  This is the bad thing about Petra and I wish the government would do something to control the harassment regarding tipping.   It puts quite a damper on the whole experience.  It would be nice if the government employed more professional people as guides and providing transportation in and out of Petra or offered better training to the Bedouins.

We had a special request of Select Tours to arrange a sort of “family reunion” or outing for around 50 to 60 people.  Elisa suggested that we rent a large bus and go to Mountain Breeze Country Club in Al Salt.  This turned out to be a fantastic idea and resulted in a memorable experience for everyone that went.  It could not have been better!

Our driver, Nabil Abeda, was also an excellent choice for us.  He was extremely knowledgeable about all of the historical aspects of Jordan as well as being a great driver and very nice person.  It turned out that he had lived in the US for many years so he spoke very good English and there were no communication problems at all.  I would certainly recommend requesting Nabil if you use Jordan Select Tours.

Over the course of several weeks of finalizing our itinerary for Jordan, we made many changes and even canceled at one point because of the situation in Syria.  As soon as that situation turned around from potential war in the region to Syria agreeing to UN inspections, we made the decision to go ahead with the trip and we are so happy we did.  Elisa was very patient and receptive to all changes and in the end made our visit to Jordan one of the best ever.  We would absolutely recommend Jordan Select Tours, Elisa Papi and Nabil Abeda for anyone considering a trip to Jordan.

Elias Shahwan

Thank you for a wonderful wonderful tour.  We enjoyed every moment of it.  In addition to the sea and the mountains and the ruins and the desert, we especially appreciated Samir’s tour of Petra (we always appreciate a guide who is willing to deviate from the script once in a while to answer questions and tell stories) and, most of all, Khaled’s skills at getting us through Amman’s traffic, knowing exactly when we were getting hungry, ensuring comfort and security, and his great sense of humour.

Thank you also for your patience with me as we got everything organized.  You have ensured, yet again, great stories, pictures and memories for our return home.

Best,

 

Miriam

I want to express how happy we were with our driver/guide Mohammed Kiswani on our recent visit to Jordan. We traveled with him for a week (April 20 -27) and we could not have asked for a better driver or a more gracious man.

We felt very well looked after and safe during our entire stay. He had some excellent suggestions regarding our itinerary and the suggestions he made greatly enhanced our tour. He chose to take us on a variety of different highway routes so that we would get to see more of the country than we had expected, which was fantastic.

His humor and kindness was absolutely wonderful and because of him our Jordan tour exceeded our expectations! We will definitely be recommending Jordan Select Tours and Mohammed to friends considering a trip to Jordan.

Kindest regards,

Kathy and Larry Bowser

I have just returned from a trip to Jordan were your company acted as ground agents for Imagine Africa in London.

I would personally like to thank you for your work in helping to make my trip (with 3 friends), to your beautiful country, amazing.

Your driver Qais Bader, was excellent and followed our itinerary exactly. He sorted out the couple of very minor issues, to our complete satisfaction, and was very helpful, knowledgeable and courteous.

When I get the opportunity to come back to Jordan, I will contact you directly, and will definitely recommend your company to

my friends.

Many thanks again for your help in allowing me to enjoy your magnificent country.

Kind Regards

Greetings from KSA! Thank you very much for your very warm hospitality during my weekend visit/ tour of historical and beautiful Jordan.

Though within a short period of time I had grand and beautiful lifetime memories of Petra, Jerash, Dead Sea and the sights and sounds of Jordan that it has to offer to its tourists/ guests.

In between I had also a taste of the delicious “Mansef” served at Midway Restaurant, Fish dish from the biblical Jordan river served at the Bethany Restaurant, lots of intricate souvenirs and mementos from your beautiful country with welcoming shop owners and staff including the world famous Zalatimo sweets, Pomegranate Juice from Jerash, Special date bread from Paradise bakeshop. All of this through the warm welcome and the excellent services of Mr. Sayel Hijazi Jawasneh, whom I consider now as my Brother from Jordan amongst the friendly staff from the Amman Mall nearby my hotel Ibis, tourist guides Moath, Tareq (Petra), Sultan (Jerash), Holiday In Lifeguard Basel, Salem and Younes. All of the moments I really enjoyed and the weather truly cooperated during my visits and rains paved my way to explore the intricate designs of the ancient world as it unfolded on my eyes.

I will never forget my short visit to Jordan and promise to come back again, and I am really proud to refer this unique, safe and pleasant experience  to all my friends and colleagues globally through Jordan Select Tours through Mr. Sayel of his professional and excellent services with defensive and safe driving skills on the ins and outs of Jordan.

Keep up the good work and special thanks to Mr. Sayel !!! I appreciate Mr. Omar for his time and effort during the delay of my flight making sure that I am in good hands from arrival to departure.

More power, God bless and till we meet again.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO JORDAN SELECT TOURS!

With Many Thanks,

 

Engr. Michael

This is the last full day of our wonderful Jordanian experience, so we just wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped make it so smooth and memorable.  I have already filled out your questionnaire, but, since my handwriting is so bad, wanted to make sure you know how much we appreciated Elisa Papi’s help making our customized tour plan, Mohammed Salameh’s expert driving and assistance in so many ways, Ali’s help in Petra, and so many others who I’m sure helped with arrangements behind the scenes.

We saw and did so much that each day seemed like a week, but we know that we only scratched the surface of what your wonderful country and people have to offer, and so we hope to return soon, inshallah!

Again, many thanks,

 

Joel Smith and Terra Brockman

Petra was great. Visiting Petra was one of the main reasons for coming to Jordan and it did not disappoint. We were incredibly sore the next few days, but it was worth it. Petra Kitchen was good. It ended up just being Kristina and me that night, so Tareq the chef was able to give a lot of individual attention. I am also a baba ganouj fan, and it was some of the best that I have had. Wadi Run was great. We had our camel ride and then the Jeep ride was also really good. I appreciated that Firas came along. He got some great videos of us running down sand dunes. The Dead Sea was a highlight for me. Jerash was unexpectedly awesome. I did not know much about it beforehand, but I was really impressed with the size and how well preserved everything was. If anyone has a later flight out from Amman, staying at the resort the last night worked really well. They let us keep the room until 2:00.

I was very impressed with Jordan Select. My wife and I have done a fair bit of traveling since we started our assignment in Saudi Arabia a few years ago and your team is among the best that we have seen. I really appreciated your flexibility in changing our itinerary before and during our trip. Firas and Wisam were both exceptional. They were always early and their advice and coordination made the trip more enjoyable.

Thanks again for the help. We had a wonderful time.

Kindly,

 

 

Brian

Thank you very much for this year. The group enjoyed their day and evening in Jordan.
I spoke to my mum and brother before they left the OCEAN Hotel this morning. We LOVE this hotel and would like to utilise the same hotel every year . The service at the hotel was wonderful. All the clients enjoyed their short stay there.
Thank you and I hope you have a lovely week. Take care and enjoy the wonderful warm weather.

kind regards,

 

 Evie Caras

A big BIG thank you from me and my husband for the wonderful wonderful trip we had! Jordan is a very beautiful country and you guys simply made it look even more amazing!

Everything-starting with the VISA procedure to the final see-off was very well coordinated! Mr. Awni, our driver was very knowledgeable and helpful! We never felt out of place! We were overwhelmed with the hospitality he showed us!

We will definitely recommend Jordan and Jordan Select Tours to our family and friends.

Thank you for making memories! Awesome ones! As you say, ‘Shukran’!!!

Regards,

 

Sanjukta Rej (Ashii)

I just wanted to let you know that I had a fantastic trip. Wael was really
great and I really appreciated you changing the schedule to allow me to stay
a night in Wadi Rum. That was really magic and I am so glad I stayed there.

Thanks also for getting the package to me.

I have really been impressed all the way along by the professionalism and
flexibility of the Select Team.

Cheers,

Kristina West

It was very nice meeting you in person at your office and, also on behalf of my friend, I would like to thank you once again for everything and especially for helping us with the refund of the ‘ miscalculation’ of the payment by the representative who met us at the airport.

Please also convey our sincere appreciation to the manager for his assistance and integrity in returning us the extra payment of Euros 165.00.

Our meeting with the manager in your office convinced us that the ‘miscalculation’ by the complex method of converting Euros into Dinars, then into USD……, was obviously not the way Jordan Select Tours do business!

We would also like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to Wesam who has been an excellent driver/guide throughout our whole trip.  He has been very kind, considerate, patience and accommodating all the times.

We have enjoyed your country very much and hope to come back soon.

Kind regards,

 

Betty See

Thank you so very much for giving me this wonderful tour of Jordan. I had
the time of my life here and thanks to the wonderful excellent service from
everyone- especially my driver who showed me Jordan in the
most beautiful way.
I really enjoyed your services and would highly recommend your company to
everyone that comes here.
Thank you again for an exceptional experience and I hope to see you again
soon.

Nick Nath

A visit to Jordan is often passed over because of the Middle East conflict especially after the Arab Spring. Or a visit may be only a cruise ship land excursion taking a long tour bus ride from the port of Aqaba to Petra to view one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
Jordan’s rich history from ancient times and its extremely varied geology and geography is worthy of a full week tour going from its verdant north to the desert south and from the tall mountains to the lowest elevation on earth, the Dead Seas.
Jordan Select’s classic 8 day tour gave us an excellent understanding of the country which is the size of the state of Maine. We saw Greek and Roman ruins in Jerash, olive trees and farm land in the north, then the Dead Sea area’s historical biblical sites, then to the historic and archeologic city of Petra, then to Wadi Rum, the fascinating desert we recalled in movies such as Lawrence of Arabia and recently the Martians and at the end the seaport city of Aqaba.
Our tour was a private tour which included a private driver and car with internet access, local tour guides and per our request 5 star international hotels. As we experienced elsewhere in the world the cost of a private tour on a daily basis was less than a group tour and more custom to our interests and timetable.
Most group travel tourists only meet the local people in passing. Recognizing the problem group tour operators are adding visits to local homes or schools.
In comparison, with a private tour with a private driver, you are spending a lot of time with the driver and gives you an opportunity to know a Jordanian. If he is open, engaging and enjoyable to talk with like Ibrahim Smadi, our designated Jordan Select driver, you can learn a lot of the life of Jordanians, their aspiration and struggles and some socio-political insights, which you cannot learn from a Lonely Planet guidebook. You can ask questions that are difficult to ask in a large tour group.
Licensed local guides are useful with providing information about what you are seeing but too often they are like a walking tape recorded message giving the same information to everybody. We learned and remember so much more about contemporary Jordan from Ibrahim and will probably forget over time what I learned about the Umayyad period in Jordan.
We highly recommend Jordan Select’s classic itinerary and very much appreciate the services of their driver, Ibrahim Smadi.

Ira Wong

My husband Andy and I wanted to thank you and your colleagues at Jordan
Select Tours for helping us plan a wonderful trip to your beautiful country.
We could not be happier. Our hotel accommodations were perfect and the
travel arrangements were very smooth. Everything worked the way it was
supposed to work, which is the sign of a well planned trip.

We would like to extend a special thanks to our driver and guide, Mr. Firas
A. Beool, who did an excellent job of driving us, arranging for
English-speaking local guides, and teaching us about the rich culture,
customs, and history of Jordan. As much as we enjoyed visiting the historic
sites, our visit was enriched by Firas. He ‘rescued’ us from local taxi
drivers and uncooperative border guards at the Allenby border crossing,
helped us navigate around a traffic jam on the King’s Highway in Tefila
caused by a spontaneous University graduation party (he even negotiated a
police escort around the traffic jam!), and brought us chilled ice water
after a long and hot day of hiking in Petra. He patiently answered our
thousands of questions. Firas is generous, kind, thoughtful, and he became
our friend as well as our guide.  Jordan Select Tours could not have a
better representative than Firas Beool.

Thank you and your colleagues for your professionalism and hard work. I have
already recommended Jordan Select Tours to several friends and colleagues,
and I will leave a complimentary review of your company on TripAdvisor.

Kind regards,

Robin

I’m writing this mail to you in order to show my gratitude and to give you a big hug from me and my husband. As you know, we just return from our holiday and we already miss Jordan. I remember our last phone conversation when you assured me that everything will be fine and we’ll have a nice tour.

EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT AND WE HAD A WONDERFUL TOUR!!!

– very good organization, started from the airport ( we felt like VIP)

– very nice hotels

– very spacious car

– good guide on sites

AND A EXTRAORDINARY DRIVER!  Ibrahim was our everything, but most important we feel him very dedicated. He likes what he is doing and it sees. He is a big PLUS for JST company

Lucky us to choose JST and Bravo for you!

Best regards,

Malina

Thanks for an unforgettable trip! Big hug!

Thanks Jordan Select, we had a wonderful tour of Jordan. We were very
impressed with the efficiency and friendliness of Lamees; with the
attention and hospitality of our driver Mohammed Salame, and with the great
character of Jordanians. We will recommend Select to anyone we know
traveling to Jordan.

Hope to see you again in the near future.

Daniela and Jose Fernandez 

We are now home and all unpacked.  It seems like a dream that we were in Amman wandering around Roman ruins just last weekend and floating in the Dead Sea.

We very much enjoyed our visit to Jordan.  The itinerary went very smoothly and all the travel arrangements and accommodation were excellent.  Thank you for your advice and patience – especially about my numerous visa inquiries.

I have recommended my niece contact you when she is planning her holiday to Jordan.

The only thing we would do differently next time is spend a night at the Dead Sea prior to going to the airport on our last day.  I hadn’t really appreciated how relaxing it was going to be.

Firas was a wonderful Tour Escort. He is very knowledgeable, professional and friendly.  He made our trip much better with his gentle guidance, suggestions and recommendations.  He provided many insights into Jordanian history and cultures, which helped us understand and enjoy Jordan much better.

The Movenpick Resort Petra is terrific.  The staff were friendly and welcoming.  The rooms were spacious and comfortable.

Omar in the Al Iwan restaurant was a wonderful waiter.  He was friendly, very polite and humorous.  We had a very wonderful anniversary dinner there.

Thank you for all your efforts to make our trip enjoyable and memorable.

Yours sincerely

 

 

Sharon

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for our wonderful weekend. I hope you also had a great long weekend.

Everything went so smoothly and both Waled (the driver) and Elias (guide) were absolutely fantastic. We managed to do so much without ever feeling under pressure and we learnt and saw so many wonderful things, it was simply fantastic!

Jordan really is as special as we always dreamt it would be and your organization and the great people you provided us with gave us a very memorable and special experience. I will certainly pass on your details to any friends looking to visit and we will certainly use you again should we come back to see the North.

Many many thanks again

 

 

Colin

Jordan Select Tours is committed at every level to provide the customers with the highest quality of services, and you managed to exceed my expectations.

Thank you for making my stay a memorable holiday. Special mention about my driver guide Ahed who flawlessly and professionally handled all my inquiries and produced an exceptional experience.

I cannot wait to visit your wonderful country again in the near future.

Have a great day.

 

 

Maria Teresa Fernandez Fragua

First of all, thank you for the excellent service that you and Mr. Awni provided to us.. We felt very special and it was handled perfectly! We all had a wonderful holiday in Jordan and have happy memories!

Again, a BIG THANKS to Jordan Select Tours!

Kelly, Ton, Denz, Ron, Nel, Mike & Dan

We have completed the tour. I would like to thank you for the nice package along with the trip and driver. It was a wonderful experience especially the car was good and driver was very friendly. Everything was arranged nicely. Thanks once again.

Regards

 

 

Abhishek

We really thank you for the wonderful trip we had. Everything was perfectly organised by you and your company. We wish we had more time to explore. However, it was absolutely fine. I also acknowledge services of Mr Musa and would like to compliment him for the very courteous and safe journey all through our trip.

Thanks once again,

 

 

 

Ajai Kumar

I just finished a tour of Jordan, and I wanted to tell you how clever you are to employ such an amazing driver. He was, without a doubt, the best driver we have ever had. We have traveled extensively, and we use drivers and guides frequently. As expected, Mohamed’s driving skills were excellent. And, since we had advised him about our back problems, while at Wadi Rum, Mohamed cautioned our driver in the desert to be careful with his speed due to our back problems. Mohamed was extremely patient with all my questions (and, being an attorney, I ask a lot of questions), and provided all the information I required. His English is excellent and we did not experience any problems with translation. He was always early to meet us each day. He allowed us all the time we wanted at each site. He called ahead to ensure we got the best guides available at each site, as well. (And I might also commend our guide at Jerash.) At the hotels, he always came into the hotels and stayed with us as we registered to answer any questions and ensure there were no problems. But, I must say, more important even than his knowledge, skill, and professionalism was his disposition. He was always in a good mood, which had a significant impact on our enjoyment of Jordan. Thank you so much for employing this man. He was responsible in a very large part for our enjoyment of this trip.

 

Colleen McQuaid

I would like to let you know that we enjoyed all the sights, and hotels that Jordan Select had arranged for us, and we particularly enjoyed Monther Masri as our driver and great source of interesting information about Jordan.   Thank you once again.

Sincerely

Cathy Rogers

First this was the trip of a LIFETIME!

Haythum was absolutely the BEST driver we have ever had, the local guides that he chose for us were perfect for us. Jerash was an exciting surprise, we were very unfamiliar with that destination. And finally you were SO right, 2 nights at the Dead Sea was the thing to do, the minute that I saw how far Amman was from the airport, I asked Haythum to make the change,  should have NEVER doubted your expertise!

I am looking forward to recommending Jordan Select to my clients….I hope to be able to send some to you!

We had an absolutely great time thanks – Petra and Wadi Rum were particular highlights for me. I can’t recommend our guide Nabil Abida highly enough – he was the absolute height of courtesy, kindness and local knowledge and made the trip really special. I’ve never been on a personally guided trip like this before but it certainly won’t be the last time – having the guide made it individual and allowed us to get closer to this wonderful country and its people than would otherwise have been the case.

Thanks again

Just a quick note to tell you that we had a wonderful time in Jordan.  We especially liked our tours in Jerash and Petra.  Hasan was a very good guide and driver, and was most accommodating.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time and will recommend Jordan and Jordan Select to our friends.
Thank you for all your assistance and guidance.

Best regards,

Karen

I just wanted to let you know that the trip you arranged for me in Jordan was a highlight of 2014.
All the best to you and Ahmad. Stay safe and well.

Best regards,

We wanted to get in touch now that we are at home to let you know how much we enjoyed our tour with you.  You had so much valuable information that you gave us regarding your country, its history, politics, financial situation, royal family, olives and olive oil.  We truly enjoyed the little extras you gave us, in particular, the stop at your favourite breakfast bakery.  The falafel and bread were sumptuous.  Jordan is a beautiful, safe country and we still marvel at all the superb sights that we saw.

We have let family and friends know how much we enjoyed Jordan, and your tour and will be passing on the information about Jordan Select Tours and you to anyone who would like to travel to Jordan.

Best regards,

A short message to send greetings & thanks to Ibrahim for his looking after us on our recent 4 day tour of Jordan – his friendship and attention to detail was much appreciated by Jan & myself.

We arrived home safe & sound & are settling in to being home again & regularly think back to the wonderful sights of Jordan, they will be with us for a long time.

Thank you to Jordan Select Tours & again to Ibrahim.

Kind regards,

 

Jan & Bill Medaris

Thank you for your diligence in arranging our itinerary for our trip to Jordan. We enjoyed our visit immensely. We especially want to recognize our wonderful tour guide, Mohamed Kiswani, as a major factor who contributed to the success and enjoyment of our time in Jordan.

Debra and I found Mohamed to be knowledgeable about Jordan in all its aspects of life- landscapes, the food, the people, the political variables at play within and around Jordan, the history of your beautiful country. He was always concerned about our safety and rearranged the schedule, at times, to ensure we had the best trip possible. Mohamed gave us insights into traditions and how we could fit in most easily into local events. This saved us from a few potentially uncomfortable moments, for which we were very grateful. We also found that Mohamed was honest and forthright in explaining situations, and always seemed to have our best interests at heart.

We would highly recommend Mohamed’s services to friends and family. In addition, we are happy to recommend your agency for anyone wanting to see Jordan.

Thanks again for all your work on our behalf.

Sincerely,

Carol Pappas and Debra Diaz
I would thank you for your kind assistance and confirm that we have a great experience and a wonderful holiday.
Everything was excellently planned; our driver, Awni, and all the guides were very kind and professional.
We will suggest your travel agency to our friends and relatives.
Best regards,
Alice

I am just completing a 6 day tour of Jordan.  My trip took me from Amman to
Petra, to Wadi Rum, to the Dead Sea, and I fly out this morning to Istanbul.
My stop in Jordan is part of a round the world trip I started in late
August, and I just wanted to comment on my experience with your company.
The destinations selected by Jordan Select Tours were perfect and made my
visit memorable. As a solo traveler in the country for the first time, however, the destinations are only part of my concerns. Perhaps the biggest
concern is the ease, comfort, and security of the transfers between stops and
the person selected to manage my day-to-day itinerary. In this regard, I
want to comment on the exceptional services of the driver who escorted me during my entire stay in Jordan.
From the moment I first met Mohammed at the airport he was extremely
professional, courteous and informative. He told me that he would take care
of everything and that if I ever had any questions or concerns to let him
know. His goal, he told me, is to see the smiles and happy faces of his
clients as they depart Jordan after he has escorted them through the
country. We went over the itinerary and he made sure I had his phone number.
As we drove along from the airport to my hotel he pointed out various points
of interest, from the new construction going on to the old and new parts of
Amman. At the hotel he told me when he would be by the next day to pick me
up and start our journey, and he showed up several minutes early on Monday
morning.
Mohammed helped me when it came to deciding where to hire a guide and where
to forgo the expense. For instance, he suggested a guide was worthwhile at
The Citadel and that it was not necessary at Mt. Nebo (after he pointed out
what to look for as I walked the site). My tour included the price of a
guided tour of Petra, and prior to arriving at Petra, he made sure I had a
very good person to guide me.
Mohammed also served as my interpreter. At every check-in, he handled all
the arrangements for my room, and he made sure I understood the plan for the
day or the day he would pick me up.  At Rahayeb Camp, I was booked for a
standard room. Mohammed spoke to the operator and had me upgraded to a VIP room at no extra cost.  He also arranged the 4×4 drive into the desert and
the morning camel ride: all I had to do was show up at the time he scheduled
and the event went off without a problem.
We spent a lot of time in the car together, and Mohammed used the time to
explain life and society in Jordan and to patiently answer my questions
about the country.  His command of English is excellent, and we chatted
about many topics.  As a solo traveler, it was nice to have a companion
happy to talk.
It seemed throughout my time in Jordan that wherever we went, whenever we
stopped, everyone knew and genuinely liked Mohammed.  By association, I was
the beneficiary of his friendships and contacts, and I received excellent
care from his associates.
It is clear that Mohammed’s motivation is to assure that the traveler has a
wonderful time in Jordan.  He does this by carefully looking after all the
details of the trip, explaining what will “happen next,” keeping the tour on
track for the next stop and making sure no one takes advantage of his client.
I will leave Jordan today with many fond memories and a smile on my face,
all made possible by the care and attention of Mohammed.

Thank you.

Alex Iszard

I cannot express enough gratitude for our AMAZING trip to Jordan. One we
will never forget, and we never felt an inconvenience. Everything was
arranged perfectly. We all said today that we missed Esam! He went out of
his way on a number of occasions to make our trip joyful and complete.

Thank you to your team who have perfected the Jordan experience. We will
come back, hopefully for a Jerusalem trip or possibly another Petra
excursion with our families!

All the best,

Larissa Boland  

I am pleased to say that we very much enjoyed our recent trip to Jordan and I would like you to pass our thanks to everyone on your staff who helped to organize it.  The changes (night in Wadi Rum and the meals at Petra Guest hose or “The Basin” instead of a night at the Petra Guest
House) worked out very well and added to our enjoyment.
Please pass our special thanks to Wesam.

Regards,

John and Kia
I would like to thank everyone at Jordan Select Tours who helped to make our holiday so special.
I would particularly like to thank you for organising everything so well, despite all my changes of plan and cancellation. The tour had just the right mix of relaxation and stunning site-seeing.
Finally, please let Bader know that we really enjoyed his company for the trip. He is a great driver and host, good humoured, knowledgeable and always punctual. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome in Jordan and we have great memories of our journey.
Thanks again to everyone.
Stephen James
First of all, I just wanted to let you know what an amazing time my wife and I had while we were in Jordan.  Your country is absolutely beautiful, full of amazing history and the kindest of people.
I also wanted to thank you personally for all the help you gave us in organizing our trip.  You were always quick to respond to emails, answered all of our questions, gave great advice and overall made the planning process incredibly easy.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and your company.
Also a special mention of our driver Ibrahim.  Simply put he was amazing!  He met us at the airport and immediately made us feel comfortable and at ease like we had been old friends.  He was an amazing driver/ guide and the trip would not have been the same without him.  He knew an incredible amount about the history of all the places he took us to, was quick to answer questions and give recommendations and always made sure we got where we needed to go safely.  He kept us on schedule, while at the same time adding in his own “spicy” stops along the way that made the trip even more memorable.  He did all this with a great sense of humor and overwhelming kindness.  I truly felt that when our trip was over we not only were leaving Jordan but we were leaving our friend.
So thank you again for everything.  It was truly an special experience that we will not soon forget.
Matt & Kim Shaw
I have just returned from a trip to Jordan were your company acted as ground agents for Imagine Africa in London.
I would personally like to thank you for your work in helping to make my trip (with 3 friends), to your beautiful country, amazing.
Your driver Qais Bader, was excellent and followed our itinerary exactly. He sorted out a couple of very minor issues, to our complete satisfaction, and was very helpful, knowledgeable and courteous.
When I get the opportunity to come back to Jordan, I will contact you directly, and will definitely recommend your company to
my friends.
Many thanks again for your help in allowing me to enjoy your magnificent country.
Kind Regards
Martin Chaplin  

Our trip was great and we enjoyed Jordania pretty much. We were quite impressed with the country and its people.

Ahmed, our driver, was more than a driver! He supported us in everything we needed and also explained to us a lot about the culture, sites visited. He was very calm and patient!

Thank you very much for all your attention, kindness, dedication and gentleness toward us , not to mention your excellent work!

We are completely satisfied with everything!

Warm Regards!!!!!

Let me start with our excellent driver and tour guide, Nabil. We met Nabil when we crossed the Allenby Bridge on 5/21. He was very prompt ( and was prompt for the rest of the tour) and looked for us as soon as the bus arrived. He welcomed us warmly and made us comfortable from the get go. He was helpful with the numerous luggage we have. He laid down the itinerary each day clearly and made sure that all our needs are met. He made suggestions when necessary, and most often, his suggestions are better than we thought of. He was knowledgeable of the places we visited and had carried great and intelligent conversations with my family. He was also an excellent, cautious driver.
He is very sensitive to all our needs (i.e., he brought a cooler with bottled water or took us to a Filipino restaurant when we said we are missing a filipino dessert).

Second, I would also like to thank Iris for assisting me to plan the tour. I like that she was prompt to respond to my emails which made your company stand out among the other tour companies I emailed. I also appreciated all the suggestions she made. I think that organizing the pre-tour is equally important as the tour itself.

Third, we also enjoyed the tour with Whassef. We also had a great time with him.

Overall, I will highly recommend Jordan Select Tours to family and friends. I enjoyed all the places I visited, the cuisine, the culture and the people I met. I cannot wait for the next visit to Jordan.

Sincerely,

Cristina
Thank you soooo much for the tremendous tour you arranged for us in your beautiful and stunning country!
From our initial contact, arrival, to every sight we saw and detail along the way – everything was perfect!
And of course, Mr Yousef was amazing and truly made our travel a most entertaining and wonderful experience we will never forget!
Thank you for all the extra thoughtful touches also for our wedding anniversary
– we have been so blessed – and are truly appreciative
With much love and grateful hearts

I wanted to let you know Mr. Beool did an outstanding job throughout our trip to Jordan. All the sites were top notch and the guides you obtained for us were excellent.

Thank you for a great time.

David Bushnell

I just wanted to send a little thank you note for my recent trip to Jordan in April of 2015. I feel very fortunate that I had the opportunity to do an independent tour with your company and have Sufyan Akileh as our tour guide/driver.  I now have a greater understanding of your country and would love to come back again.  I would have no problem recommending your company to family and friends looking to visit your country.  It was an excellent itinerary and it will leave us with many memories none the least of which Sufyan will be:  his energy, enthusiasm, and good humor showed his love for his country and people every day. When we talked about visiting Jordan we looked into big bus tours and small independent tours. I don’t think I would be able to do another big bus tour after being spoiled.  Sufyan looked after us as if we were family.  It was pleasantly surprising to not even worry about the small stuff.  Sufyan made sure that we had water, juices, and opportunities to enjoy tasty local snacks and fare. Sufyan is one of Jordan’s many hidden treasures. With warmest thanks for your excellent care of us on our journey through Jordan, and for importing on to us your wealth of knowledge, I shall never forget this fascinating tour, and who could ever forget the wonderful maklouba meal that was specially prepared for us.

Thank you again and best wishes,

 

Theo
We had a great time in Jordan and with excellent service from Jordan Select. Thank you for all your effort. We will recommend Jordan Select to all our friends.

Faris made this trip very warm and enjoyable. We had a great time, please pass our regards and thank him.

Happy New Year and all the best for 2015.

Thanks,

Rahim

We just returned from our 8 day Jordan Tour organised by Jordan
Select. Jordan is a beautiful country and totally exceeded our
expectations. We had a fantastic time.

I wanted to let you know that you were a very very important part of
making our trip so successful. From the beginning, you have been so
helpful, patient, accommodating, professional and knowledgeable. It
has been nothing but an absolute pleasure dealing with you. From
answering the most mundane of questions to expertly managing last
minute itinerary changes to anticipating our every need…. you were a
super-woman!

You are such an asset to the Jordan Select Team.

Thank you very very much for everything, Iris!

With Kind Regards

Sara
we have recently completed a 6-day tour with your company(ies) and we would like to express our gratitude.
We had a very nice tour and everything was planned and carried out according to our wishes. The pre-organisation was already very quick and easy with Ola and Jasmine, and our airport pick-up together with the visa help was extremely helpful.
We would also like to particularly thank our driver, Hasan, who went above and beyond to accommodate our wishes and to help us. We very much enjoyed his company and we learnt so much from him about Jordan.
The sights have been beautiful and we would certainly recommend this tour and your provider to other tourists.
Best wishes

Several weeks ago, we were lucky enough to travel throughout Jordan with Jordan Select Tours. It was one of the best choices we could have made for our first visit to Jordan.

We were very grateful early on to be able to communicate with Iris Tan, who provided a comprehensive itinerary for a private tour that fit both our timeframe and budget. We saw so much throughout our trip (including the Dead Sea, Petra, and Wadi Rum), but never felt rushed. Iris somehow managed to strike the perfect balance between an ambitious and leisurely pace of travel, keeping in frequent contact with us before our departure from New York and even reaching out to us by phone during the trip to check in on us.
Our favorite part of this trip was Sufyan Akileh. He is the most attentive, flexible, and friendly tour guide we have come across in all of our experiences traveling abroad. Sufyan was a pro in scheduling, adding stops along the way when something piqued our interest or skipping stops when we were ready for rest. He provided snacks and drinks that we enjoyed on our daily road trips. He put us at ease, keeping the mood light by sharing jokes, and impressed us with his extensive knowledge of the culinary arts. We give Sufyan full credit for our newfound appreciation of maqluba! It was clear to us that we were in the good hands of someone with many years of experience in the industry. All of this makes Sufyan truly an asset to your company.
We would like to express our many thanks to you and your team for giving us a home away from home this spring. Both Theo and I felt safe, comfortable, and extremely fortunate to be able to explore such a beautiful country with some of the friendliest and most helpful people in the world. It is an experience that we will remember with great fondness and one that we will share with our family and friends to spread the amazing word about Jordan and Jordan Select Tours. Thank you!
Xiao Lin Wu & Theodore Trujillo

I am writing to, once again, say how very much my wife and I enjoyed our tour of Jordan and Israel with Jordan Select Tours.  We were enchanted by the sites we visited and people we met during our tour.  It surpassed our expectations in every instance.  Your company did an outstanding job.

We especially want to express our gratitude to our guides Esam and Maher.  We cannot say enough about them.  We feel fortunate that we had two men of such high caliber to show us around their respective countries.  We feel that they were not only our guides, but our friends as well.  We think of them often.

Faithfully yours,

Michael and Elizabeth Anders

Thank you for making our Eid vacation a memorable one.

I need to make a special mention of the guide(Abdullah) & driver(Mohammed) you provided to me.

There are no words to describe their dedication & the level of customer satisfaction service they provided. They were just amazing.

Next time if any of my friends or relatives are visiting Jordan, I will surely recommend Jordan Select Tours & Abdullah.

Thank you once again for all the support extended.

 

 

Hisham
On behalf of all of us here at Search for Common Ground, I wanted to commend your team as to the level of detail and logistical assistance you have provided throughout the week.  You have completed all of the disparate transports with all of the changes we made without issue and perfectly, and the tours that you had led last Monday were also exceptional and Abdullah (the guide for my trip) is also to be commended.   I have lost count of the number of commendations your team has received from our staff throughout the week, and your assistance has been invaluable to me and Jimena throughout the process.
Once again, thanks so much,
Brad
We are back from a wonderful Jordan trip. It’s been a memorable one for me, my husband and my friends. We highly appreciate the support we got from your team from the time of inquiry, at the airport, till the end of our trip.
The overall trip was a blend of adventure, fun and relaxation. We were overwhelmed by the beauty and history of Jordan.
The lively rainbow street, adventurous Mujib reserve, rejuvenating dead sea, historic petra, mesmerising wadi rum and the stay in Martian tent will be unforgettable. We relished on delicious food and met some joyful and warm people.
The minivan was super comfortable for four of us to travel. It was very thoughtful to provide us with WiFi in the car and a local mobile phone.
Unfortunately, we could not meet you. Nevertheless would like to thank you for all the arrangements. Special thanks to Feras for being so friendly and professional throughout the trip. He guided us very well.
Will surely refer JST to our other friends.
Divya Poojari

We just had our honeymoon in Jordan from 29 Sept to 6 Oct.
Following the fantastic trip, we would like to thank you for the perfect service. Ola and Jafar are very professional which made our honeymoon perfect! Ola has a very considerate arrangement for our hotels. Almost all of our rooms gave us lovely upgrade or honeymoon gifts.
We are very happy with Jafar who has excellent driving skills and very patient on introducing local culture to us. The whole journey would be less of fun without Jafar!
We are recommending the agent to our friends. Quite a few are interested in the Jordan Tour!

Much appreciated!

Lisa & Bin

Just got back to Sydney Australia tonight.  I cannot praise enough our driver Hani and our Guide Abdullah for a wonderful tour of Jordan.  Hani’s expertise driving and Abdullah’s history knowledge of the area added to our amazing tour of Jordan.
Hani’s assistance on our last day with the problems with the delays from the Israeili checkpoint and our Jordan visa problems at the Allamby Bridge checkpoint was of great assistance and was gratefully received.  While I missed my flight because of these circumstances, Hani made the whole situation less stressful for me and stood by me and made sure I was well looked after, taking me to the hotel at Jordan airport and organising my stay there.  THANK YOU HANI SO MUCH.
I will recommend your travel tours and I know Carol and John fully endorse them as  well.  Both Hani ad Abdullah were always on time and so knowledgable on the history of all the areas we visited.  We found the Jordanian people so friendly and helpful wherever we went in Jordan.

Thank you for an amazing tour of Jordan.  I will suggest to the tour organisers this end that more time should be spent in Jordan.

Yours sincerely

Judy Porter
I have just returned from 4 days in Jordan that you organised for my group (Lucy Matthes, Felicity Alabaster, Evelyn Over and Amanda Hughes via Mosaic Holidays, London) and wanted to say it was the most wonderful trip.
The guide you provided, Rania was most excellent and she taught and showed us so much, and we all became friends.  Also, our driver Wael was extremely helpful, fun, knowledgable and not to mention being a very safe and good driver!  He introduced us to delicious jordanian biscuits at the beginning of the trip and then managed to source more for us to take home whilst in Petra.  Rania and Wael really helped make this a very memorable holiday and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone we know.
I would also mention that both hotels we stayed in were perfect for what we wanted. 
All in all a fantastic holiday. 
Many thanks for your help and organisation for this trip
Lucy Matthews

We had a fantastic time in Jordan with your Tour agency and staff, will definitely and highly recommend to our friends and family. We hope to come back to Jordan in the near future.

Please send my regards and thanks to Muath Shatnavi and especially Yousef Brish.

All the Best!

 

 

Betty Quach

I wanted to thank you for everything that you did to make our vacation such a remarkable and extraordinary experience.  It was wonderful working with you and our trip exceeded our expectations.

The hotels were all excellent beginning with the beautiful Fairmont, the gorgeous Dead Sea Resort, and the fun Sun City Martian dome tents.  They originally had us in Tent 12 and they offered to move us to Tent 1 which is the best located tent with no obstruction of the view.  So great!

You know that I kept pressing you to get us into the Petra Movenpick Hotel but the Old Village Hotel was so much better.  They put us into Room 116 which was their Honeymoon Suite.

Everything went smoothly starting with being met by Muath at the airport.  Firas was absolutely wonderful and we’re so happy that you assigned him to us.  He made certain to book us with great local guides and took great care of us.

I have already recommended two friends to you and Jordan Select Tours.  They want to visit Wadi Rum in the spring.

Again, everything was just wonderful and we’re so grateful and appreciative.  We wish you all the very best for the New Year.

Take good care and thank you very much again!

 

 

 

Wenda & Dan 

Since Woody and I did not have a chance to fill in the questionnaire while we were in Jordan, we wanted to be sure to be in touch by email to let you know how much we loved our tour and our tour guide, Wael Kawamleh. He was so knowledgeable and thoughtful and eager to do all he could to accommodate us. We would rate him excellent in every respect. His suggestions and guidance were so valuable, and he was very easy to talk to.

Thank you so much for making all the arrangements. Please pass along our thanks to Wael for his personal attention and service. It was a remarkable trip that we will never forget. We will certainly recommend Jordan Select tours to our friends.

Warm regards,

 

Jennifer and Woody Turner

Many thanks for taking such great care of the Lee family. They LOVED their trip from start to finish and particularly loved their guide and all the special extra care he incorporated into their trip.

MANY THANKS!

Now we are back in Brazil after two weeks in your lovely country. On behalf of all my family I wish to thank you and your company for the high quality and very professional service we received from you. Our driver-guide Nabil also was very good.

I wish you all the best.
Best regards,

 

 

Luiz Torres and family

Thank you very much for organising our tour in Jordan. We absolutely loved it and our guide, Sufian , was the best! Nothing was too much trouble for him and his local knowledge was wide ranging. He is indeed a great ambassador for your company!
Your country is so beautiful and interesting. I shall recommend your company to friends at home,

Kind regards,

Judy Allinson

It was nice to meet you last week. We appreciate the excellent service we received from Jordan Select Tours throughout the entire experience. Esam was simply outstanding in every way. He was so courteous and pleasant to be around and knows so much about your great country. All of us were happy to have such a great guide. The hotels were great too.

We will definitely update Trip Advisor on your behalf and recommend Jordan Select and Esam to anyone we know bound for Jordan in the future.

Best Regards,

Beatriz Zolezzi and I had the very good fortune of receiving services from the excellent staff of Jordan Select while we were in Jordan from April 29 to May 5.

I am writing in particular to express my great appreciation for the services of Yasmin Aqil and Joseph Jaber.
In a way, Yasmin Aqil saved our trip. I had been working with a travel agent in Costa Rica for more than 2 months when it became obvious a two weeks before departure date that they did not have the experience (or the Jordanian connections) to complete our reservations. I found Jordan Select on the internet, read the great reviews and sent an email. Yasmin replied and her work was magnificent from the start. She always responded quickly with results or great suggestions, and good prices. Usually within a day. Without her speed and ability to find our preferred reservations quickly, I think our trip would have been a disaster.

Joseph Jaber was a wonderful surprise. We had not expected such talent and expertise. He was so much more than a driver. He really was a personalized tour guide. He was always on time, kept us nourished (waters and fruits), and took us to the best places, sometimes not on the itinerary. Beatriz and I are an inquisitive couple and we asked lots of questions about Jordan—its history and its people. Joseph was an encyclopedia of knowledge and a story-teller. What a wonderful person he is; he is a true gentleman and a superb driver.

Thank you Jordan Select for an extraordinary trip. I have recommended you to the Costa Rica travel agency with whom we had started ….hopefully they will contact you and thereby provide superb in-country service to all of Costaricans.

By the way, I am a former hotel and travel agency owner here in Costa Rica….I think I have the experience to recognize exceptionally great service when I receive it. You must be very proud of Yasmin and Joseph.

With gratitude,

Michael

I cannot tell you how extremely grateful I am, to have found your company. I am very grateful. Sufiyan was EXCELLENT! And so hospitable. Very professional but also very warm spirited. Everything was amazing. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Sufiyan went above and beyond, and that was appreciated. Your company has a loyal customer now 😊 And sufiyan does too. I’ve already recommended the company and sufiyan to friends, who will travel to Jordan. Thank you for making the perfect itinerary for a memorable journey.

With Gratitude

 

Sam

Greetings from Jerusalem. We are here for another 2 nights then back to Tel Aviv for 3 nights before returning home.

I can honestly say that the whole trip was brilliant.

The itinerary, the choice of hotels was excellent.

Your help was invaluable and we got there despite the best efforts of my bank to cause problems!

Yousef was a total gentleman, so thoughtful and polite. He is clearly a very nice person and we always felt safe with him. He made our week so easy- we felt very spoiled, getting driven about like royalty!

We were also very impressed that you called and spoke to me to see how we were getting on. Great customer care!

I will put a review on Tripadvisor when I return which will reflect our complete and total satisfaction with every part of the trip.

Very much a 5 star service- no doubt about that.

Best wishes

We enjoyed a pleasant day with Khaled who is a safe driver, and he kindly looked after my wife May who could not walk easily because she has a bruised heel on her right foot. Jerash is much larger than we expected and much to see there. We were at Jerash from 10 am.to 12.30 pm. Khaled drove us to near to Ajlun Castle so we could see the castle from a distance, but we had walked so much around Jerash that we decided to return to Amman old city to explore the Citadel and visit the Citadel museum.

Khaled then drove us into the old city, assisted us to purchase cups of fresh pomegranate juice at JD 1.00 per medium size cup. It was much cheaper and better quality than pomegranate juice which we purchased at Jericho 10 days ago. Khaled then took us to Jerusalem Restaurant where we enjoyed a late afternoon lunch.

It was an enjoyable day and we learned much about Jerash, also about the long, colourful history of Jordan.

Thank you,

 

Robert Day

We are currently at the airport and we would like to thank you for your efforts to make this holiday amazing!

Also, Alaa was great and he made the trip so easy for us.

Thank you and best regards,

We thoroughly enjoyed Jordan, it’s sights, the friendly people and your wonderful hospitality. Felt very at home.

We want to specially put in a word for Raed , our contact in the border crossing who gave us wonderful support and help esp with the crisis in the Dead Sea area ….

We will surely recommend Jordan Direct Tours to our friends and write a review on Trip Advisor as soon as possible.

Best regards

 

Bratati katyal

Thanks again for such a great trip!

As I mentioned in my earlier emails, I’ve recently launched a family travel company. For any families wanting a trip to Jordan, I will definitely be using Jordan Select Tours. I was really so impressed.

Thanks,

 

Faye

I just wanted to thank you and all the Jordan Select Tours guides/staff for the wonderful experience in Jordan!

I have not stopped thinking about Jordan!! I talk to my Jordanian co-workers all the time about how much I want to go back. My mother and I would like to visit next March 2018 or sometime in 2019. 

Could you please send my regards to Firas and Ahed??? Ahed was amazing to us! Please tell him that we miss him (Danilo, Mariela and I) and that we will never forget him Please tell him I said this.

I have given some of your business cards to 3 of my friends who are interested in visiting Jordan next year. They loved my photos and videos.

Thanks again for assisting me with the tour itinerary and for being so patient Amira…I love and miss Jordan!

We have landed safe after a super time in Jordan.

Our driver Yousef has been so magnificent on every bit of the journey. He
was a big part of why we instantly felt at home and enjoyed Jordan to the
full. He was very helpful, knowledgable, polite, patient and friendly in the
best possible way.
All the sights we saw exceeded our expectation except Mt Nebo (might be
because it was on a very hazy day) and Madaba.
Petra Moon was a fabulous hotel. It felt like a top 4 stars hotel and the
staff was very friendly and helpful.  Lovely big room that was very clean
and all the furnishing was of top quality.
Holiday Inn was great – we had a very good service there.
Our correspondence with Hind and Elisa has been exceedingly excellent. Very
impressed with the always prompt reply, that our requests were listen to and
heard, openness to altering our itinerary and the perfect written English.
We have taken so much home from Jordan. What an amazing country. Really
inspired and we’ll definitely recommend you to friends and family.

Again thank you so much for all your help.
If we return to Jordan I’ll be in touch.

Very best wishes

Ann

I am finishing my tour of Jordan today which was organised through your company . I wanted to take the opportunity to express my thanks for the tour. Your driver was an excellent tour guide & was always willing to meet my needs & was very knowledgeable about the sights of Jordan & the best places to go. He was always timely & a safe driver. I have traveled to many countries & I found this tour and the services of Mohammed to be one of the best. I would choose your company if ever I was to visit Jordan again & I would recommend your company to my friends who want to travel to Jordan.

Regards,

We had a fantastic time and Ra’ed (our guide) was great and really made it special.

Many thanks for organising the trip.

We enjoyed a four days tour conducted by your company and were pleased to complete your service evaluation form with an excellent mark in all items.

But it doesn’t mean that everything was perfect, that would be an unreasonable expectation, it means that your personnel strived at and succeed in making us feel good and well looked after every step of the itinerary. Things don’t go naturally that way, committed people makes them to.

Miss Ahmad’s proficiency at tailoring the tour to our needs convinced us to choose your agency, she was always quick, clear and precise in her answers; thoughtfully considering all relevant aspects in the planning of the schedule, even anticipating possible inconveniences: she called us the very evening of our arrival at the hotel in Amman to let us know that there could be weather problems in Petra next day and that if that proved to be case she would rearrange the itinerary.

Mr. Akileh our escort is a remarkably safe driver, a knowledgeable guide and a caring person which left literally nothing to be desired as a professional. Thanks for the most part to him, Jordan would no longer be for us a remote geographical reference but a country we know of and care about. The land of a people to whom we wish the best for the future.

So, in the end, this is mostly about congratulating You on the human and professional quality of your personnel.

Yours very truly:
