I hold a degree in Journalism but became a travel agent by passion. I am a fortunate person who has chosen two careers leading to the greatest experiences one can possibly have: New places, tastes, essences, people and their life-changing stories.

I'm originally Brazilian but have found myself on the other side of the World. My journey through Middle East & Asia started in 2012 and it is nowhere close to an end.
This region is an endless source of unforgettable experiences and we, at Experience Jordan, want to share the best with you. Our team is not only very professional, and capable of providing you the perfect trip, but also very passionate about their countries and work.

Prepare yourself for loads of fun and new discoveries. We promise you a lifetime adventure!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialize in adventure and experiential tours of the Middle East, particularly Jordan and Israel Palestine, offering hiking, biking, and experiential sightseeing tours. Our experienced guides will take you off the beaten path, to see the real highlights of the region, meeting the people, experiencing the hospitality and tasting the delights of the Middle East.

We aim to be the best inbound tour operator in the region, offering you the perfect trip, tailored to your specific requirements at affordable prices, with excellent customer service.

We know you’ll love our trips, because they are all the result of our own adventures around the region, sharing all the authentic treasures we have found and love. All the Experience Jordan team love exploring and we’re here to help you create the perfect tour for your needs, whether it’s sightseeing, hiking, cycling or family adventures. Do you want to stay with a local family, camp out under the stars in the desert, learn to cook Arabic food, explore the markets, ride a camel, engage with the people and even learn some Arabic greetings? Our international team has traveled the world, so we know what it’s like to be travelers, so we aim to give you outstanding service and include the best practices we’ve learned global into our trips.

As part of our commitment to the people of Jordan, we continue to pioneer new tours and experiences to create jobs and generate income for our local partners throughout the country, both in Amman, but also in the rural communities and Bedouin families across Jordan."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Back in 2011, I started working in an NGO which provides exchange program for university students. Through this organization, I've done my first trip abroad to [a not-so-usual first destination] India.

That experience was dramatically life-changing. After few months exploring the country, its culture & people, I was bitten by the travel bug and I went back to Brazil knowing exactly what I wanted for my life.

My next destination was Jordan and here I am since 2013 working in the travel industry, aiming to share with other travelers at least a bit of the huge and amazing experience it's been living here."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Besides India and Jordan. I have been to other countries in Asia and my ultimate experience was certainly in Afghanistan.

This war-torn country, normally avoided by most of travelers, has some of the most beautiful and unexplored landscapes in the World.

Hiking through the mountains of some very remote areas and dealing with the incredible hospitality of Afghan people have changed my life perspective forever. And, as weird as it sounds, I have never felt so peaceful like those days."

Traveler: William G. - Local specialist: Raísa Jorge

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.

His care and concern should be taught to others in the tourism business in other countries!!!
Thank you again. It was a wonderful nine days in a fascinating country. PS: Loved your food too! And the cats.

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 unique, unforgettable sensation... wish I could do it for hours on end!!! And the service at the resort is some of the best I've ever had in all my travels. Wish I'd had more time everywhere!!!

Traveler: Mikhail K. - Local specialist: Raísa Jorge

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.
