Ultimate guide to visiting petra - jordan's ancient city, Jordan - Dec 27 - Jan 1, 2019
Our trip to Jordan was perfect. Every detail was taking care of by Tamara and her team. We were taking care of from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. No complaints at all. It was a wonderful trip from start to end thanks to the detailed planning and assistant from Tamara and her wonderful guides. Loved it. Highly recommend.
11 day jordan trip, Jordan - Dec 28 - Jan 7, 2019
Overall, we had a wonderful experience on our 12 day tour of Jordan. Lena did a great job planning our itinerary with us. We had different drivers which we were not expecting at the beginning of the trip but need up having Haithan for 6 days at the end and really enjoyed working with him! He was a super guide, went out of his way to introduce us to new restaurants, new experiences, was always on time and shared interesting information with us and was very flexible.
We would definitely book with you again!
Jordan in 7 days - amman, jerash, mt nebo, petra, wadi rum, aqaba and the dead sea, Jordan - Dec 27 - Jan 5, 2019
We found dealing with Raisa very easy and she responding promptly to all our questions in the planning and lead up to this trip. The itinerary was very comprehensive and busy which suited us although with hindsight we did miss out on a few things (Guide in Jerash) and a tour of Amman which was not included. Some of the hotels were not up to a standard that we would like and in need of maintenance (faulty leaking showers) but overall we had a terrific trip.
Trip to jordan, Jordan - Dec 28 - Jan 4, 2019
Highlights: Wadi Rum, Jerash; Okay-lights: Petra, Dead Sea, the driver, the hotels; Lowlight: Aqaba.
Wadi Rum was by far the main highlight of the trip that absolutely exceeded our expectations. The place is indescribably beautiful, and the Aicha Memories Luxury Camp had the best accommodation and the best food of the entire trip. Jerash was the second favourite – quite surprisingly!
Azzam was an excellent, professional driver. He was particularly courteous towards the end of the trip. He... read more
Jordan, Jordan - Dec 25 - Jan 1, 2019
Jamileh was our guide and we loved her. She offered information and insight that we couldn’t have found in a book. Jamileh let us set the pace when walking, but made sure we saw everything we were promised.
Our driver Hassan was so nice and helpful too. We definitely could not have driven in Jordan, having a driver was a must!
The country of Jordan was beautiful, the natural landscapes were breathtaking. The ruins and sites we visited were truly “once in a lifetime “ moments.
Raisa was... read more

The entire trip from start to finish was beyond brilliant . Our driver Mohammed was so knowledgeable and catered to our needs . A highlight of the trip was Wadi Rum Jeep tour . Thank you Amanda for your seamless and stress free travel plans.
Highlights of jordan & israel: 9 days, Jordan - Dec 2 - Dec 9, 2018
Lena was excellent! She was patient and put together an amazing trip and experience for us. She was prompt in her replies and provided expert opinion. There wasn't anything that we would have done different except extend our trip! The accommodations that were arranged were fabulous. The activities and suggestions for itinerary definitely enhanced our experience. Would recommend Lena to anyone looking to travel through Jordan and Israel. For anyone traveling to both who cross the boarder into Israel, ensure you have cash left for the exit tax!
Jordan, Jordan - Dec 14 - Dec 17, 2018
Overall it was a fantastic trip. We covered a lot of ground in a very short period of time, and it was flawless as a result of the efforts of the team, and in particular Akram. From the moment we landed until our drop off back at the airport, the team worked hard to ensure that our trip was as memorable as possible....and it was.
Highlights of jordan & israel: 9 days, Jordan - Nov 17 - Nov 27, 2018
Our trip to Jordan was beyond anything we could have imagined. From the “Grand Canyon”, Mt. Nebo, Wadi Rum and Petra, the landscapes were unforgettable. Our driver Akrem made it all come alive. He is so knowledgeable. He saw to our every need, and took us to places off the beaten path. Please give him a raise Carmen.!
KimKim does a good job of connecting with local agencies, and Lena from In2Jordan put together an amazing itinerary. Our only complaint was with one driver (George) in Israel.... read more
Jordan: petra & the dead sea - 3 days, Jordan - Nov 28 - Dec 2, 2018
We bought last minute tickets for Jordan, so we did not have time to organize it by ourselves so we decided to pick Carmen as our travel organizer. We only had 3 and a half day and manage to see everything that was our "must do places". Thanks to our driver Azzam, we did not feel tired at all and were enjoying our stay in Jordan to the fullest! Accommodations were also great and near to the everything. Especially we liked our stay in aisha luxury camp where we went stargazing! And the staff... read more
Highlights of jordan & israel in 12 days, Jordan - Oct 31 - Nov 12, 2018
The entire experience was awesome! Lena took care of the Jordan side, and Daniela handled Israel. Both did an amazing job of building a schedule that allowed us to see the key sites that each country had to offer - some of which we wouldn't have seen without their insight. We put our trust in Lena and Daniela and they definitely delivered! Having found Kimkim via a Google search, I was a little skeptical at first that it would work out, but there was far more understanding of our needs... read more
Jordan in 5 days: amman, jerash, mount nebo, petra, wadi rum, and the dead sea, Jordan - Nov 20 - Nov 25, 2018
Carmen did a very impressive service in organizing our trip to Jordan. We had a wonderful stay in Jordan because of all her efforts in catering our suggested itineraries. Thanks a lot Carmen.
Hakam,our dirver is very friendly, goes out of his way to make us both very comfortable during the whole trip. We felt very safe and had a great time seeing the tourist spots in Jordan because of him. He’s such a gentleman and so far he is one of the best driver we’ve known. Thanks Hakam :)
Trip to jordan, Jordan - Nov 16 - Nov 19, 2018
Tamara was an excellent specialist - she worked within our budget, and made sure we saw all the sights we wanted to in Jordan. I was impressed with the itinerary, and loved every one of our drivers. Our hand-offs were smooth, and all of the drivers and guides were incredible! Other than the hotel in Petra (which was just old) the lodging at each stop was fantastic. Tamara even accommodated a last minute change to our arrival time, without blinking an eye. She was amazing, and I was so happy we went with KimKim!
Group departure - trekking the jordan trail from dana to petra – 9 day tour, Jordan - Nov 17 - Nov 25, 2018
This was an AWESOME trip! Extremely well organized, both of our guides were knowledgeable and friendly, the scenery was spectacular, and Petra is indeed one of the wonders of the world. Don't be fooled; this hike is not an idle ramble in the countryside; it's more a Seal Team Six exercise in some of the most austere scenery I've ever seen. But, when you finally get to Petra, you feel you've really earned it. Now I'm going to sleep for a few days...
Day tour of petra, Jordan - Nov 23 - Nov 23, 2018
The process of booking was easy. But I was very disappointed in the tour. While the tour of Petra was a must-do, the price for the experience was not equal to the value. Our guide was nice and pleasant and stayed with us 2.5 hours. She connected us to a young friend to provide rides up the mountain. After she left, he tried to scam for more money. We finished our walk up and down ourself. The price of entry to the park, 2.5 hours of tour and a buffet lunch did not really equal the $185 in value.
I will not recommend this tour to any others.
Dana to petra trek - hiking from dana to petra in jordan - 9 days, Jordan - Nov 9 - Nov 17, 2018
Mehmood and Habu were a great company and very helpful. They were very friendly and patient in guiding our big group.
Jordan experience, Jordan - Oct 11 - Oct 19, 2018
Carmen set up a trip of a lifetime for our family. We were impressed with every aspect of our journey. From our driver, hotel rooms, and general itinerary - all of it was superb.
Our driver (Haitham Shaltoot) was way more than just a driver. Immediately upon greeting us at the airport he was asking us our likes and dislikes for food, and what we expected from our visit to Jordan. He became our driver, cultural adviser, and tour guide. Without Haitham our trip would have been great,... read more
Trip to jordan, Jordan - Nov 3 - Nov 11, 2018
We enjoyed our trip to Jordan very much. It was very well planned out. We got to see and experience everything on our list! It was a fast pace, but did allow some down time for a bit of relaxation at the Red Sea and Dead Sea.
Our guide at Petra, Merriam, was exceptional! She invited us to dinner at her sister's house, which allowed us to experience true Bedouin hospitalty.
Our drivers were competent and experienced. We only wish their use of mobile phones during driving was less frequent.... read more
Highlights of jordan & israel: 9 days, Jordan - Oct 29 - Nov 9, 2018
We had an amazing trip to Jordan and Israel everything was planned perfectly and worked like clockwork so thankyou for that. We saw everything we wanted to and a lot more.
Our two drivers Mo'ayed in Jordan and Monther in Israel were fantastic - nothing was too much trouble they were always on time and very efficient, informative and very pleasant, please pass on our thanks to them they really made the holiday. Our jeep safari of Wadi Rum was very enjoyable what an adventure! as was the... read more
Petra and the dead sea, Jordan - Nov 6 - Nov 9, 2018
Everything was great especially our wonderful driver Mohammad who was very informative about the areas we were visiting as well as Jordan in general. We would have liked a bit more time at the dead sea as we arrived at 230 pm and left at 8am the next day. It was a wonderful experience except for our hotel in Petra , the Candles hotel is an absolute dump. We were initially given a room I wouldn't have housed a dog in and the replacement was much better but still way below the standard expected.
Jordan in 7 days - amman, jerash, mt nebo, petra, wadi rum, aqaba and the dead sea, Jordan - Oct 28 - Nov 4, 2018
Our family of five tried KimKim.com for the first time to help us plan our one week trip to Jordan.
Carmen showed great flexibility and willingness to adapt to our (changing) requirements until we had an itinerary fitting our wishes and budget.
On site in Jordan, things worked nicely and without hickups with regards to booked activities, over night stays and drivers/guides.
All in all a very good experience!
Petra wadi rum, Jordan - Oct 29 - Oct 31, 2018
We loved the trip. Going to Jordan was a wonderful experience.
There were surprises. One was how long the travel took. Knowing the time frame better in advance would have settled some of our mild anxiety. We were surprised it took all day to get to Wadi Rum and arrived almost at dusk. But the camel ride was waiting and everything ended up perfectly.
Our guide was very good, but she held the mike too close to her mouth and some of her narrative was distorted by the sound on the bus, but... read more
Trip to jordan, Jordan - Oct 16 - Oct 20, 2018
The trip was a blast. Our driver Amjad was personable and professional. My only critique is that there was not enough time to do this trip properly. If I did it again, I would skip the Wadi Rum and spend more time in the other locations. We spent a long time driving just for a couple of hours touring the Wadi Rum. Otherwise, it is a good overview of some of the spectacular highlights of Jordan.
Tour of petra and most popular tourist spots within 2 days, Jordan - Jul 23 - Jul 26, 2018
We had the most wonderful trip to Jordan, thanks to Imke. She was knowledgeable, very pleasant, had great recommendations, answered all my questions and was very patient with me. We are seasoned travelers but this was our first time in the middle east and were a little apprehensive but not anymore. We were able to see Petra, Wadi Rum, Baptism Site and Dead Sea. The whole experience was breathtaking. We were very happy with our hotel accommodations. A special shout out to our wonderful... read more
Trip to jordan, Jordan - Oct 23 - Oct 26, 2018
We weren't sure we were even able to do a tour through Jordan and its most exciting places as short as 3 days, but Carmen planned a great tour for us and catered to all our wishes and needs. She was always quick to answer any questions we had and made alterations to the trip as we needed them. Overall, the trip ended up being absolutely wonderful, one we will certainly never forget! Even days before our tour, Carmen was always there to answer any questions we had!
Our driver was Nedal. He... read more
Dana to petra trek - 9 days, Jordan - Oct 14 - Nov 1, 2018
The itinerary turned out to be a bit too much driving in the first few days. The drive from Ajloun to Wadi Hasa was tough - thought it was booked this way because of tight scheduling at wadi Hasa but that in fact didn’t seem to be the case?? The backtrack to Amman after the wadi also seemed unnecessary just to turn around and head back south again.
Raisa was awesome at making some last minute changes and updates.
Islam was the best- really enjoyed the wadi with him. He needs to NOT bring... read more

Petra wadi rum, Jordan - Oct 29 - Oct 31, 2018
The trip times and experiences were told in advance to be one thing and were very much another. We were told we would be in Wadi area for lunch, turned out the time to get there was about 7 hours. We got there around sun down and took the camel ride as the sun went down and got to the overnight accommodations after dark. Our guide explained that the people booking this did not understand the time and distances and we needed to be flexible. We cooperated but were surprised that Lena did... read more
Deep cultural and historic jordanian experience, Jordan - Oct 25 - Oct 29, 2018
Lena was so professional, quick, responsive, efficient, and helpful! When my driver was late by 30 minutes, I called her and she sprung into action. She provided excellent trip recommendations and feedback. Thank you LENA!
Jordan: amman, petra and wadi rum - 4 days, Jordan - Oct 19 - Oct 23, 2018
A stand out negative- the Oscar hotel in Petra is not clean and is very tired and smoky. I asked for simple but clean. We ended up moving to the move pick for our second night. I would remove it from your hotel list.
We also had three different drivers all were nice and efficient but better to have one that can tell a few stories. They were very reliable and punctual though.
Otherwise Jordan was fantastic. Thank you.
Jordan: amman, petra and wadi rum - 4 days, Jordan - Oct 23 - Oct 27, 2018
We had a wonderful trip organised by Carmen. We were able to see Wadi Rum, Petra and Dead Sea. The whole experience has been breathtaking and it will remain in our memories for a long time. Our driver Mustafa was always prompt and ensured that we were taken to the places of the visit as per our Itinerary. We loved this trip and will recommend to our Friends as well.
Trip to jordan, Jordan - Oct 16 - Oct 21, 2018
We used Why Jordan travel agency based in Petra through KimKim. When you arrange a holiday where you are reliant on the tour operator for your driver and guides you put yourself totally in their hands.
Tamara from Why Jordan worked with us to plan the 6 day trip across Jordan taking in Jerash, Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea. It was a whistle stop tour and every step of the way the events unfolded as previously planned. From the reception at the airport including sorting the visas to our... read more

We did a Jordan and Jerusalem 4 day trip and it was amazing! Tamara was very patient with us as we had her change things to make the trip exactly how we wanted. We flew in and arrived late on Saturday night and were delivered to our hotel where we did dinner on our own. The next morning breakfast was included and then our driver Talal picked us up and spent the next four days with us. We toured Amman where Talal bought us Turkish coffee and coffee cookies that we enjoyed before touring... read more
Jordan in 7 days - amman, jerash, mt nebo, petra, wadi rum, aqaba and the dead sea, Jordan - Oct 14 - Oct 22, 2018
Thoughtfully prepared itinerary.
The driver allocated (Nedal) was helpful & advised on circuit and what to expect. Cover the northern side of Amman and the south but Petra just blew me off. What a site but it was beneficial because we engaged a guide at site.
Also incorporated some experience at Wadi Musa & Wadi Rum in the desert wilderness.
Finished the circuit with Aqaba & Dead Sea. Wish we had spent more time here
Be prepared for an active period if you want to enjoy.
Thank you Kim Kim.
Jordan in 5 days - amman, petra, wadi rum, aqaba and the dead sea, Jordan - Oct 6 - Oct 10, 2018
The experience in Jordon itself was fantastic. It is a beautiful country and we enjoyed Petra and Wadi Rum immensely. The experience with kimkim was good at first, but a lot of important details were missed that soured our experience. Imke never sent us the name or contact info for our driver, despite her assuring us that she would and I reached out to her days before we left to get that info. We felt rather lost when we landed, not sure where to find him since there were groups of... read more

Everything went very well - the planning as as well as the trip itself. Lena was very helpful when it came to answering my many questions before the trip.
The driver in Jordan was very good and was always on time for our trips/activities. We would definitely use him again if we visited Jordan on a second trip.
There was only one small snafu during our trip and it happened while we were visiting Petra. It wasn’t clear to us on the second day of our visit to Petra how and when we were to go... read more
Experience jordan tour - 8 days, Jordan - Oct 9 - Oct 15, 2018
Andy was very accommodating and was very good with the follow up. Once The trip was booked, we did not hear back from Andy or Kimkim. I wrote to them about days before the trip was to begin and at that time I received a handout of what to expect when we arrived in Amman. I wish the materials were forwarded earlier and without having to ask for them.
Jordan: amman, petra and wadi rum - 4 days, Jordan - Sep 26 - Sep 30, 2018
Petra was great and we all enjoyed that. I was disappointed with Wadi Rum and the organization/lack of information of what we were doing and its duration. For example, we were told we should leave Petra early to get to wadi rum, thinking there was a lot to do. After getting there around 11, we sat around for over an hour not knowing what was going on. We then went on our jeep/camel ride for a few hours and got back around 4 with nothing to do til dinner. Our driver told us he was picking us... read more
Jordan in 7 days - amman, jerash, mt nebo, petra, wadi rum, aqaba and the dead sea, Jordan - Sep 17 - Sep 25, 2018
We had a fabulous time in Jordan. Lena did a great job organising and planning the trip. Especially the hotels she booked as all were in central locations or very close to the attractions and amenities. This made it so easy to access and visit all the areas we wanted to see - actually walking distance and you get to see more of the locality. The hotel in Petra and Dead Sea were superb and exceeded expectations.
Petra was jaw dropping and no doubt to its status as one of the worlds natural... read more
Jordan and israel, Jordan - Aug 4 - Aug 18, 2018
My partner and I had the most amazing trip to Jordan and Israel. Everything was seamless... from meet and greet at the borders to great accommodation to wonderful private guides at all the key sites. We had looked at doing a group tour and decided to book a completely private tour on the Jordan side, and a mix of day tours and group tours in Israel. You get the peace of mind of a perfectly organised trip created by a local expert, great local guides, and with the independence of a private... read more

This is the first time I have used KimKim, and I am very happy with the booking process and the tour itself. The agent, Raisa, answered all of my questions quickly and in good details. Once we have started the tour, she kept me informed on the tour guide change. The tour itself was wonderful and my group really enjoyed our guides and our time in Jordan. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to travel to Jordan in he future.
Jordan in 5 days: amman, jerash, mount nebo, petra, wadi rum, and the dead sea, Jordan - Sep 9 - Sep 13, 2018
The planning and help in curating the itinerary was a highlight and was very well done. Jordan is beautiful and I wish I had more time there. Wadi rum was a short stay but exceptional. I will have to return again to do justice to the sites and stars in the desert.
Thanks Carmen and Kim Kim.
Wish you guys the best in what you are trying to achieve. Experiential travel is the way to go!
Trip to jordan, Jordan - Sep 4 - Sep 8, 2018
We had a wonderful in Jordan thanks to Mohammed (our guide), Tamara (our travel agent), and KimKim. We hit the major sites: Petra, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea and they did not disappoint. We couldn't have wished for a better trip. Our driver/guide, Mohammed was the man! He made the experience fun, informational, and authentic. The trip was the perfect blend of site-seeing, adventure, not too much traveling, amazing food, etc. Highly recommend!
Trails through the holy land , Jordan - Sep 3 - Sep 12, 2018
A wonderful trip! Raisa organised it perfectly, listening to my requests well. She checked and asked questions and coped well with my questions and changes.
Mustafa Orabi, the driver. Driver is the incorrect title. Carer would be more accurate! Mustafa is an amazing, caring person, who made sure that everything was perfect every day. Nothing was too much trouble. I just sat back and relaxed for nine days. Add to this his great knowledge of each area, north to south, we visited and his... read more
Trip of jordan & israel, Jordan - Aug 18 - Aug 24, 2018
Lena was EXCELLENT to deal with, we changed our minds 5 times in this trip and dates and she made everything so easy (thanks Lena). We loved our tour with Akram & we loved Jordan in general - it far exceeded our expectations. Mohammed (our guide through Dana nature reserve) was excellent & our favourite part of the whole trip was the 4 x 4 ride through Wadi Rum desert. Thanks everyone for an amazing holiday - we’ll be back!

Lena is very efficient, replies very fast and organised a very fulfilling itenary customised for what we wanted to see in Jordan. Our guide Shareef was very friendly, punctual and informative and we loved going to each historical place with him. Would definitely recommend him and Lena as tour organisers for any of my contacts wishing to explore Jordan. Our favourite spots were Petra, Wadi Rum and Aqaba..not to say the other sites were any less amazing..each site had a uniqueness which we... read more
Family visit in amman + jerash, petra, dead sea, Jordan - Aug 6 - Aug 15, 2018
Driver Azzam was very good and informative and punctual. However on a couple of occasions he suggested pick-up times different to those on our itinerary, most notably at Petra where he did not know about our back-door hike to the Monastery on the morning following our day at Petra, and he suggested a pick-up time from the Dead Sea of 1:00pm rather than the previous booked 5:00pm (this was important as we were meeting the family at the Dead sea). However everything worked out all right in the... read more

Sharif was a real gentleman. We fell in love with him. Always on time, polite, attentive, full of useful suggestions, discreet.
He helped to make our two birthdays special.
Petra and Wadi Rum amazing. So much history. Bilal was a great story teller. Camel ride fantastic. Lying on the sand looking up at the stars beautiful. Sharif suggested snorkeling in Aqaba - just right.
Tour of jordan, Jordan - Jul 23 - Aug 1, 2018
We booked a 10 day trip to Jordan as a family (2 adult children). Starting in Amman we did the standard trip - Amman, Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba then ending at The Dead Sea.
Lena's communication and advice was excellent. We had a driver (Mohammed) throughout which made the trip very straight forward. I don't see how you could really cover this ground in a limited amount of time without a driver. The car was very comfortable and Mohammed was efficient and punctual. We got a couple of quotes... read more

The best thing of all, the people I interacted with: Tamara, Mohammad and Tito!
I usually do my own travel planning and booking, this time I booked a last minute trip to Jordan and I am more than happy I got to be connected via kimkim to the Why Jordan Tours team, from the first moment I got contacted by Tamara I knew that all I had to do was to leave it all to the experts and begin to enjoy my trip.

Everything was great, the fact that I was able to message back and forth in a "conversation" style on KimKim was very easy going and helped as I was able to request changes as they happened up to the trip.
One of the best things about my trip to Jordan when booking through Kimkim was my driver, Yahya. I wasn't sure about doing an individual trip to another country. But my driver was great company, he was a good converser.
He talked me through what to expect, how to get the most out of my... read more

Bilal the day tour guide was very knowledgeable. We saw petra through his enchanting descriptions and with great detail. LENA Was amazing, always there to respond and answer our questions, almost immediately. Seamless travel tailor made.
THANK YOU 😁
Highlights of jordan: 6 days, Jordan - Jul 22 - Jul 27, 2018
I enjoyed the private Jordan tour and all Tamara’s hard work putting it together at the last minute. Her flexibility and helpfulness along the way were most important, answering my numerous questions, and ensuring I had non-smoking hotel rooms and a driver I could speak to.
The disappointments were mostly due to a lack of research on my part and even so were far outweighed by the positives. I would and will recommend your agency, driver Ala’a (the very cool, smart Aloosh), the Ramada Dead... read more

It was incredibly helpful to have kimkim to arrange this trip. It was in between heavy work travel and I needed something to do on personal time, but I did not have the bandwidth to arrange such a complicated trip by myself.

He also gave us some great restaurant recommendations for when we got back into Amman. Mohammad, our guide in Petra, was extremely knowledgable and funny. Petra was amazing to experience for the history and beauty of the place. The Dead Sea at the Kempinski resort was a highlight. Floating in the water is such a... read more

What a fabulous trip we had. Carmen planned the trip flawlessly and provided great itinerary suggestions. Our driver Shareef was fantastic and flexible as necessary. Highlights were Petra, Dana reserve (wish we'd stayed 2 nights!), Wadi Rum and Wadi Mujib. The trip was a great mix of culture, historical sites and hikes/canyoning. The Jordanians were ever welcoming and we did not want to leave!
Petra with herscu, Jordan - Jul 4 - Jul 6, 2018

We had an amazing time in Jordan and all of our reservations/bookings/excursions etc were as we hoped they would be. The W Amman was beautiful. Our driver and guide, Faris, was great and so knowledgeable. He took us to Petra which was a highlight of the trip, then we stayed in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum (I recommend letting people know that the drive through the desert to get to the camp takes about 25-30 minutes. It was after 9pm, dark and we were nervous about why it was taking so long.... read more

Custom day trip to petra, Jordan - May 29 - May 29, 2018
Our trip to Petra and Wadi Rum was one of the most memorable, and it was very much thanks to outstanding planning by Andy. I was trying to communicate with local tour operators to schedule a very specific, customized private tour and was not very successful doing so. I ran into the KimKim team and gave it a shot, best thing I could have possibly done.
Our trip was surprisingly smooth, everything was scheduled impeccably and the itinerary executed flawlessly. Andy captured my vision, and... read more
Jordan: petra & the dead sea - 3 days, Jordan - Jun 4 - Jun 7, 2018
Overall the trip was great and all of us think that Petra was the highlight. It was a rush, but that's because we had time constraints and entirely our doing. Carmen is a great planner and was in constant contact & communication before and during the trip. My thanks to her. The guides were good and knowledgeable. Najeeb may have been a little overbearing but overall no complaints. They were punctual and helpful.
The Art Hotel (Downtown) was a great location and good place to stay and get a... read more
Jordan in 5 days: amman, jerash, mount nebo, petra, wadi rum, and the dead sea, Jordan - Jun 6 - Jun 10, 2018
I could write a book or a love song about My trip to the Jordan, a story and a song that will forever remain in my heart,
The trip started with kind Tamara who knew what I wanted and the places I wanted to visit, between Jerash, Wadi Rum, PETRA, and the Dead Sea,
At the Queen Alia airport, I was met with gentleman who had a sign with my name on it waiting for me, (sincere apologies don’t remember his name) in no time he arranged for my Visa, got my luggage and out of the airport,... read more
Highlights of jordan & israel: 9 days, Jordan - May 29 - Jun 6, 2018
Overall, our trip to Jordan and Israel was great.
Our journey to Jordan was well-taken care by Akram. He led us to many spectacular spots, which were unforgettable. He also shared Jordanian history and culture. The service Akram provided was exceptional.
We were particularly grateful to be arranged to accommodate in the luxury camp in the Wadi Rum Desert. Our camp was so luxurious and beautiful, which was beyond our expectations. The food was good. And our favourite part was hooka-ing under... read more
Highlights of jordan & israel: 9 day itinerary, Jordan - May 27 - Jun 5, 2018
Guides were great, in particular Jerusalem guide. Drivers were great, Jordan driver was very funny/full of knowledge and you can tell he really enjoys his job. When we experienced a bad hotel and had to change in Tel Aviv, Walid was great. He assured us the company would reimburse us and that their first priority is to take care of customers. I will discuss the hotel in an email/further on this, was our only bad experience, but was quite bad, unfortunately. Hotels in Jordan and Jerusalem were great, and wadi rum was really great as well.

I want to say BIG Thank you to my wonderful agent Tamara, who I was happy to meet in Jordan, she did a excellent job to organize my trip. She was very welcoming and kind to me when we spoke in the office. I also want to say my special thank you to my guide in Petra, and my very big thank you to my guide and driver Bassam Helalat. Bassam is the best driver and wonderful knowledgeable person. With his help I was able to see and feel Jordan, meet amazing people and see unforgettable... read more
Trip to jordan, Jordan - May 5 - May 10, 2018
We are back home after a great trip to Jordan, all thanks to Carmen. Carmen was always kind and quick in responding to our endless questions. She suggested an alternative itinerary to save some transfer time and it worked well for us. She was very accommodating to all our requests and changed the hotels to meet our requirements and budget. Our driver Audi was very cheerful, helpful and a kind person and we had a wonderful time with him. The whole itinerary was well planned, all the pickups... read more
Jordan: amman, petra and wadi rum - 4 days, Jordan - Apr 26 - Apr 30, 2018
Been there. Done that. Have the t-shirt to prove it.
That’s usually what people say when they have travelled to a place, or have completed a task.
Well two out of three ain’t bad, especially since buying t-shirts is not part of my aesthetic. LOL!
Instead, I’ll sit grinning madly with memories of the “been-there-done-that” when I flip through my passport, my gmail account or my phone photos.
Jordan was amazing. The people are amazing. The food is incredible. The history is epochtic. The... read more

My experience in Jordan would not have been what it was without my travel specialist, Carmen answering ALL my questions, working around my own plans etc., and just being accommodating! My driver, atef, was unbelievable. He was so gracious and kind and knew all the routes and gems of each place. My Bedouin guide, Ibrahim, who took us through Petra's backdoor to the monastery was wonderful. He was patient, helpful, and an overall great guide who showed us so many cool things along the way. From... read more

We loved our trip to Jordan! We saw everything we wanted to see at our own pace. It was the perfect blend of rest, relaxation and activity, all thanks to Lena, our kimkim trip organizer and Wael, our tour guide and driver, Wael. Lena was professional, answered all our questions in a timely manner and planned an amazing trip for us. She worked with us as we requested for numerous adjustments and changed itineraries. Thank you Lena for your patience!

Two week end to two month stay in israel , Jordan - Apr 13 - Apr 24, 2018
We were very happy with all of the arrangements made by Kimkim. Our drivers and guides, both city and hiking were excellent . They were warm and welcoming and all went beyond the call of duty making extra stops where they thought appropriate. We learnt a great deal about modern day Jordan from them . Of special note were Fahdi ( Abu Hamza), Fawaz and Bilal. The hike from Dana to Feynan and from Little Petra to Petra were especially memorable and we will treasure our memories of our stays at... read more

My trip to Jordan was everything and a bit more from what I have expected :)
Carmen has provided me with an amazing service from the beginning and she was great accommodating all the places I wanted to visit in only 5 days, thank you so much for that!
Amman was very interesting and I really enjoying walking around the Paris Circle and getting lost on Circles 1 and 2... also on day 2 going to Mount Nebo and Bethany beyond the Jordan was a great experience, and needless to say that a pit stop... read more

Content research trip - writer & editor for kimkim, Jordan - Mar 19 - Mar 31, 2018
I'm the Head of Content at kimkim, and booked the first half of my recent trip to Jordan with Andy from Experience Jordan. A major goal of my trip was research for original article ideas, and my criteria was challenging. Andy did an amazing job of curating unique activities in Amman and throughout Northern Jordan that lived up to my "off the beaten path" standards.
Two favorite memories come to mind from my trip. I loved the hike that Andy arranged in the Ayoun area of Northern Jordan,... read more

I'm the Head of Content at kimkim, and booked part of my recent trip to Jordan with Carmen from In2Jordan. A major goal of my trip was research for original article ideas, and my criteria was pretty challenging. Carmen did an amazing job of curating interesting, unique, and immersive experiences that lived up to my "off the beaten path" standards.
One of my absolute favorite memories is from my time in Wadi Rum, the desert wilderness in southern Jordan. I was originally scheduled for an... read more
Experience jordan tour - 8 days, Jordan - Apr 7 - Apr 15, 2018
Everything on this trip was great except for the mishap with the Visa situation upon our arrival and the pick up from the airport. Also, our last hotel was changed and the hotel didn't have a double bed option in the non-smoking room. My roomate and i had to share a bed.
Jordan: petra & the dead sea - 3 days, Jordan - Apr 19 - Apr 21, 2018
If I were to do this again,
I would want more information up front from the guide about what has been paid for already and what hasn't.
The ultimate guide to wadi rum - jordan's adventure paradise, Jordan - Apr 5 - Apr 12, 2018
Wonderful country and nice people.
We enjoy a lot and our trip was a great experience.
Good organisation, maybe just one driver had been better as a new one every day !
Thank’s a lot !
Experience jordan tour - 8 days, Jordan - Apr 7 - Apr 15, 2018
I have been wanting to go to Jordan and have done a lot of research and comparison between different tour operators. I have also considered just renting a car and doing it on my own since I want the experience to be as intimate as possible and not be stuck with a big tour group. Thankfully, I came across Kimkim's 8 days Experience Jordan Tour which offered the type of itinerary I was looking for and also offered a fair price as a private tour. The communication platform of Kimkim worked... read more
Jordan: amman, petra and wadi rum - 4 days, Jordan - Apr 11 - Apr 14, 2018
Our trip to Jordan was great. Lena created a perfect itinerary for us and she included in it everything we wanted. Even if we changed our requirements a lot of times and we booked our trip at the very last minute, Lena was very patient, responsive and understanding.
We didn't have any problems. and our driver was very funny, professional and friendly. The price was very good as well. Highly recommended!
The only thing that I would change is the 4-hour 4x4 Jeep Tour that we had in the... read more
Jordan, Jordan - Apr 11 - Apr 16, 2018
There were a few bumps along the road with the reservations and requests for activities that didn't go through e.g. we were placed into a different hotel than the one we had requested and weren't notified; we only found out when we got to the hotel and had to call Andy ourselves. Granted, the hotel was a much nicer one than he one we had requested but "I changed the booking I just didn't tell you" isn't what passes for an apology or a suitable notification.
For the dive in the Red Sea, we... read more
Jordan, Jordan - Apr 11 - Apr 16, 2018
Our group had an amazing time in Jordan! Despite some minor miscommunication at the beginning of our trip with Andy, our local specialist, about some accommodation details, it was overall a pretty smooth experience and he was able to help us with the problems we had. We very much enjoyed our time with our local guide, Waleed, who was very accommodating and had ample knowledge about Jordan's history and traditions, all of which we very much enjoyed hearing about.
We spent a total of 5 days... read more

The trip was simply amazing.. The online scheduling department, the driver and the guide were all top notch. I could not have hoped for a better experience. Honestly, what a great country, experience and team that are at Kimkim... Thank you to all of you for all of your effort.
Petra and jordan, Jordan - Apr 4 - Apr 6, 2018
Our trip to Jordan was just as expected. We were met at every stop exactly on time. The guides and drivers spoke english well enough to explain our needs and to hold an enjoyable conversation on some long drives. The cars used were new and comfortable. The hotels, camp, and spa were excellent with the exception of occasionally poor hot water for showers. We had a great time and felt safe and well cared for throughout our tip. I would suggest that the company issue a list of contact numbers when they send out the written itinerary before the trip.
Best of jordan, Jordan - Mar 28 - Apr 1, 2018
The trip was very well organized. The whole process of communication with Raisa and payment process before the trip was very easy. Raisa picked the best itinerary for our short four days stay in Jordan. Our guides were very professional and knowledgeable. Drivers were very polite and courteous. Hotels and bedouin camp which Raisa picked for us were very good, provided great service.
Jordan, Jordan - Mar 29 - Apr 3, 2018

Jordan in 7 days - amman, jerash, mt nebo, petra, wadi rum, aqaba and the dead sea, Jordan - Mar 27 - Apr 3, 2018
Our Jordan trip for 8 days covering Amman, Jerash, Mount Nebo, Petra,Wadi Rum, Aquaba and Dead Sea has been excellent. The trip was well organised by Andy Nurse and we had hassle free trip with the driver and car provided to us. The driver Khalid Hdaib was great , friendly and always ready to help.
The whole package organised by Andy Nurse was good value for money.
Adventure, exploration, Jordan - Mar 11 - Mar 19, 2018
The trip was amazing. Carmen did a great job planning the excursion, she was always available to answer any questions or make last minute accommodations.
Akram was our guide for most of the trip. He was knowledgeable about all the sites we travelled to. Gave us lots of free time to explore. His english is impeccable but most impressive was his driving skills. Couldn't ask for a better guide.
Petra was unbelievable. We were there for 2 nights and 1 full day. If you like hiking I would recommend 2 to 3 days there. A lot more to see then just the treasury.
Overall the trip was 5 stars
Jordan in 7 days - amman, jerash, mt nebo, petra, wadi rum, aqaba and the dead sea, Jordan - Mar 12 - Mar 19, 2018
I booked this trip as a surprise for my husbands 40th birthday. Carmen was amazing in putting the itinerary together and answering all of my many questions, no question to stupid, ensuring it was a birthday to remember!
From Jerash to the Dead Sea we saw so many amazing sites with our driver Bashar nothing was any trouble!
For the birthday day itself we went to Petra which no words can describe it’s beauty and wonder! Followed by a night under the stars at Wadi Rum.
Even on returning home... read more
Petra wadi r7m trip, Jordan - Mar 16 - Mar 19, 2018
We just returned from our Petra/Wadi Rum trip and it was an outstanding experience. The entire 4 days were great - filled with many new tastes, mind-blowing sites, and relaxation. Working with Carmen was smooth and easy. Our driver - Mohammad Karajeh - went out of his way offering guidance, coffees, tastes of native foods, etc. He really added touches that made our trip so memorable. My only suggestion might be to offer a range for the tent stay in Wadi Rum...I believe we might have chosen a... read more
Jordan 2 day trip, Jordan - Mar 16 - Mar 17, 2018
The trip planning had up and downs with regard to hotels. Carmen suggested the Movenpick as a 5 star option, but I had already seen that rooms were not available. She then came back with news that rooms were not available and suggested the option of the Hyatt Zamman as a 5 star option. Turns out it was not even a part of the Hyatt chain but just a local hotel claiming to be 5 star but certainly not of international standard. I had to demand WiFi in the room ( arranged finally after being told... read more
Hoping to have a great journey/budget tour, Jordan - Mar 2 - Mar 8, 2018
Thank you to Carmen who facilitated our first trip to Jordan. It eased our apprehensions knowing we have transports and guides to assist us in a foreign land. The recommendations to stay at the Wadi Rum Luxury Night camp, and accesss to the Dead Sea at Dead Sea Spa Hotel —spot on! The Backdoor hike to Petra’s Monastery from little Petra— incredible ! We are also grateful to our guide, Ibrahim whose personality and character, stands out amongst the many we have met.
Thank you again. Hope to be back soon.
History and culture of petra, amman and environs, Jordan - Feb 28 - Mar 4, 2018
A fantastic trip to Jordan thanks to Carmen’s expertise and knowledge. It was busy but never too hectic as we saw the amazing sites. Wael, our driver and guide was easy going and friendly, as well as very punctual. He put some miles on that car shuttling us from Amman to Wadi Rum and back again! Petra of course had to be a highlight, just magical. I also loved the vastness and beauty of Wadi Rum and our friendly guide, Rashid. I think we may have been running out of energy towards the end,... read more
