Petra (and Petra in the nght-light up), jeep tour in Wadi Rum, Jerash, Mt. Nevo,Madaba, Amman, Dead Sea Canyons · Jordan - Sep 30 - Oct 3, 2017
This was one of the best trips I have been on. So well organised. 5 start accommodation and service. The guide we had was so friendly and helpful. The taxi drivers were friendly and very helpful too. I would recommend this tour and company to anyone who wants the best in Jordan.
Bianca did every she could to get the best tour together for my team. I changed the plan/days multiple times and Bianca continued to help us get the best price and experience out of it.

As a solo female American, Bianca and Jolanda did a great job making me feel comfortable.
Bianca was amazing. She planned every step for me perfectly.
Jordan: Amman, Petra and Wadi Rum · Jordan - Sep 29 - Oct 1, 2017
It was a short trip. I would say the biggest surprise was just how beautiful, well-equipped/appointed the Fig Tree B&B is. The food and accommodation exceeded every expectation. The host Jolanda even does chair massages!
Organized to a tee. Bianca could not have been more organized, knowledgeable or accommodating.

Everyone we had contact with was friendly, professional and spoke excellent English. Small hick up with a driver who overslept, but Bianca was right on it. The person who took us on the Jeep trip was excellent and was very knowledgeable about the area. I would highly recommend him.
Blanca was easy to get hold of and very responsive when we needed to contact her.

Wow, what a great trip. Bianca was a delight to work with, and everyone she introduced us to along the way was fantastic. Can't wait to get back there and adventure with these guys again!
Bianca is extremely well organized and very effective. Highly recommended.
