Samir Jawabra

I have been in the tourism field for many years, long enough for me to become very aware of travelers' needs and requirements. My passion for tourism and travel influenced me to switch my career from Mechanical Engineering to tourism.

When I build an itinerary for my travelers, I picture the routes in my mind and see how things can go smoothly and what can be difficult for the travelers - enhancing the good things and smoothing sharp edges. I do my best always to make all trips aspects clear to my travelers so they do not need to worry about any last-minute surprises. It is a way of life for me - I enjoy helping people get the most out of what they paid for, and always ready and happy to go the extra mile to satisfy my guests. My aim always is to let all of my guests go back home, with an outstanding feeling of joy and satisfaction from their trips.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I plan trips to Jordan, Israel, Egypt and I specialize in archeological, adventure, religious, trekking , and eco trips. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"Seeing the reactions of travelers after each day after they return from a visit. To see the joy and astonishment on their faces, I had to know why! "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Over 20 years ago, I took a pilgrimage trip to Jerusalem & Galilee. While it was an eye-opening experience from a religious and historical perspective, it was not a place that I would describe as particularly fun or edgy. But it is an overwhelming experience in all aspects. After that, I knew that I needed to go deeper into this field.
