Nada Altaji

Growing up I was eager to learn spoken languages other than my mother tongue; Arabic, and English which I speak fluently. I learned French at school and then got my Bachelor's degree in Spanish and English Language & Literature. There are many reasons why I chose to study languages, one of which was to be able to connect with more people around the world and discover different cultures.

My passion for languages and travel never stopped growing and so I started working at Amani Tours in Amman back in 2017, and as someone who has had the privilege to travel to many places at a young age; I consider it a great opportunity to be able to share my experience with other travel enthusiasts like myself.

So if a passionate, detail-oriented travel expert is what you're looking for then you've come to the right place! Get ready for your next unforgettable travel experience

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Having grown up in Jordan, I am very much capable of advising you on a complete travel experience that covers different tourist activities & sites depending on your interests . I am your specialist for cultural , historical , adventurous and authentic local experiences.

If a professional, detail oriented, and high quality travel expert is what you’re looking for, then please go ahead and reach out to me! It will be my utmost pleasure to accommodate your requests and make your travel experience unforgettable.
"

How did you get involved in travel?

"There's an Asian proverb that says : "It's better to see something once, than to hear about it a thousand times", and the first time I read this it hit me hard as I completely agree. I have been always been passionate about traveling , visiting & exploring new places, ever since I was a kid.

I used to travel with my parents a lot as a child and in my early teen years ; I started traveling alone, and growing up my enthusiasm towards traveling never stopped , on the contrary; it has only gotten bigger. I just love being introduced to new cultures , traditions , cuisines & people, and traveling is the way to do so.

The opportunity to be able to share this passion with other travel enthusiasts is just great, and I only want to share the most of Jordan's beauty with other travelers.

"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I have travelled to many places over the years, and I have to say that one of the most memorable trips I have ever taken was when I went to Cyprus. I started the trip on my own, but I met up with friends later on, and also ended up meeting new people.

The trip definitely exceeded my expectations, I did not expect that much beauty and serenity in one place! While there, I visited countless beaches, engaged with local people and tried out delicious foods, some of which was the island's traditional dishes. The best parts were discovered off the beaten track; places where wild donkeys wandered around, and where I found random bakeries in the most unexpected places, and boy they made some of the best bread I have ever had.

I do believe there are hidden treasures wherever you go, so seize the chance and go after them, you won't regret it!

This jam-packed 8-day getaway starts in vibrant Istanbul, where you'll cruise down the Bosphorous and visit the iconic Hagia Sophia before flying southeast to discover the otherworldly landscapes of Cappadocia. Then it's on to Jordan to tick off the country's must-see highlights—strolling through the sandstone city of Petra, camping in the red desert of Wadi Rum, and floating in the tranquil waters of the Dead Sea.

Jordan's Red Sea port of Aqaba
Ultimate Jordan: Amman to the Red Sea - 12 Days

This 12-day tour of Jordan features a perfect blend of culture, adventure, and relaxation. Starting in the country's north, you'll admire the evocative ruins of Amman and Jerash, visit towering castles and ancient mosaics, and go for a dip in the salty waters of the Dead Sea.

Section of the King's Highway
Highlights of Jordan by Bike - 8 Days

The river canyon at Wadi Mujib
Jordan Adventure: Amman, Wadi Rum, Petra, & The Dead Sea - 8 Days

After arriving in Amman, you'll have some time to explore this historic city as well as visit the nearby Jerash ruins and hike in the Zubia forest, before heading to the Wadi Rum desert. You'll have two nights in Wadi Rum, which includes desert drives to rock formations and ancient inscriptions as well as a hike up Jebel Hash, and you'll then travel to Petra. You'll visit Little Petra which is accessed through a narrow opening—and you'll then have a full day to explore Petra—before departing for the Dead Sea with a short stop at Mujib Canyon.

Our local specialist, Nada, helped us plan our trip from A to Z. She had really good recommendations, travel advice and was extremely responsive. Our itinerary, driver's contact details, hotel information etc. was all provided well in advance with a lot of detail so we knew what to expect.
Our driver, Awni Naser, who was with us for 5 days carting us around the sights of Jordan was exceptional as well. Very knowledgeable and helped re-arrange our itinerary slightly based on our needs for an even better experience. He gave us excellent pointers during the entire trip.
Our Jordan trip included Amman, Kerak, Mt. Nebo, Jerash, Petra, Wadi Rum and Dead sea. Wadi Rum and Petra were the highlights for us. We stayed in a panoramic dome "tent" (in Aicha camp, highly recommend the accommodations and food here). Nada also organized a dinner for us with a local Petra family, which was nice to see how people in the area live. We highly recommend the Petra By Night tour, it is simple and quite magical.
Overall, we have nothing but good things to say about our trip - very well organized and executed. We will definitely book with KimKim again for our next adventure. 5 stars all around (would rate it higher than 5 stars if we could!). Thank you very much, Nada and Awni!

The hotel and breakfast was good. However, they had separate days for men and women to use the pool. I understand the culture is different there but perhaps another hotel that doesn't have this rule would have been a better choice for us as travelers. After being out in the sun all day sight seeing, it would have been great for my husband and I to dip in the pool together to cool down.

We love this hotel. It was so comfortable and beautifully decorating. We were expecting more of a camping style stay here but this was definitely 5 star. Would recommend this to everyone. The breakfast and dinner were top notch - tons of variety and food to suit all palettes. We were also surprised with a complimentary star gazing activity. We weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and took our picture under the stars with his special camera. This turned out to be the best photo of our trip to Jordan! Thank you, Sultan!

We undertook a trip to Jordan with family. The Kimkim platform made it very easy to get services from a local travel agency Amani Tours directly through the platform. The booking process with our travel specialist Ms Nada was smooth. She was responsive to various suggestions and modifications to the itinerary and provided very good services. The payment process was very trustworthy through the Kimkim platform and is one of the big advantages of using the service from overseas. We got full service on the ground in Jordan. As far as hotel bookings, any special requests around late check out, attached rooms etc were fully accommodated. The pricing of the package seemed very fair. The highlight was the excellent services provided by our Jordanian tour guide Mr Emad Fraihat, who was much more than our driver. He had tremendous local knowledge, spoke English fluently, and very high customer service orientation. When trip ended and we had some hiccups at the airport, Mr Emad did his best to help us. I recommend Kimkim, Amani tours, Ms Nada and Mr Fraihat to make your Jordan visit smooth.

Nada was fantastic in walking me through the itinerary, providing options based on my preferences, and keeping in close communication.
The trip itself was seamless and we were very happy with all of our activities, guides, and accommodations. Our driver Akram was especially wonderful; he became a friend by the end of our five day trip.
I highly recommend KimKim for the busy independent traveler, and Nada for planning a fantastic trip to Jordan.

Jordan is an amazing country. Our guide, Akram, was the perfect person to show us the country. He was pleasant, knowledgeable, accommodating and the nicest most gentle man. I would definitely recommend him and Kimkim. Our favorite sites were Petra, Bethany beyond Jordan, the Castles, Mt Nebo, and the Dead Sea. Jordan is a Holy place that makes the Bible come to life. Being able to see the countryside with Akram was an awesome experience. We already miss him.

I strongly recommend using KimKim for your Jordan tour. We have just returned from a 10 day tour , tailored made to include all of our wishes. Nada , the local specialist assisted us through several changes of plans and rescheduled trips due to pandemic, also answered all of our concerns pre departure. Our driver/ guide was exceptional, Emad Fraihat was good company, extremely informative but more than that , he was kind and thoughtful and did everything possible to enhance our trip. I recommend all the places visited Amman, Jerash, of course Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba and finally the Dead Sea. Please give yourselves enough time at Petra, it is an amazing place.
No complaints regarding the accommodations en route. The food was good , we are not meat eaters but we could always find fish or veggie dishes. Wine was good too , when available.
Jordan is one of the most interesting and varied country to visit. With THE most hospitable and kindest people you will ever meet. Thank you to Nada and Emad for such a wonderful trip.

I can only recommend Nada and Emad (guide/driver) to anyone who wants to experience the culture and highlights in Jordan.
