Amman airport pickup from Cairo. Private driver with Guides at each site. Jurash, Dead Sea Hilton, Baptism site, Queen Noor foundation, Mt. Nebo, Petra by night and a full day in Petra with guide, and last day touring Amman with a visit to The Citadel, The National Museum, the city center Mosque and Orthodox church. We also saw one of the 12th century castles near Petra but did not have time to go in. Everything was arranged via email and uploading payment information which I liked.
Our driver, Ali, was a so pleasant, helpful, and very honest. He also helped us change our itinerary a little by taking us to The Baptism site since we were so close. He was also very open with us at the beginning by telling us he could not help us negotiate with venders. He never made up any BS answers if he didn’t know anything. We also loved the fact that our Visas were taken care of and very easy flow through customs. We loved Jordan and would love to visit again. Petra and Jurash were incredible. I never dreamed that either were so well preserved and so large. Jesus’ Ba[tism site was so powerful and it really made the trip. Petra by night was also quite an experience...one not to be missed. The National Museum in Amman, also not on our itinerary, was just reopened. It gives a very honest look at Jordan and it’s history. We loved the Dead Sea Scroll exhibit and the 9000 year old human statues whiich are the oldest known statues ever found. Jordan needs to advertise these things to potential tourists in the West as it has a lot to offer and we never at any time felt that we were not safe. The first thing that was said to us upon arrival when we were picked up by Evaneos, rep was that you are in Jordan and you are safe.
Very little. The hotel in Amman, The House,a boutique hotel, was new. It did not have a restaurant though did serve breakfast. Our room was cold, it was winter. We never got the room warm nor was the water from the shower hot. The staff at breakfast never explained that we could order freshly prepared eggs. We read it on the table at the end of the meal. We had to ask for coffee or tea and nothing was explained about the three stations of the buffet which were in completely opposite ends of the room. The staff just stood around...very odd.
