My wife and I had a wonderful time in Jordan. Our driver, Sharif, went above and beyond in making sure our trip was everything we wanted it to be. In addition to driving, explaining the sites along the way, and keeping track of all the logistics, he took care of any problems that came up. We had a snag involving our baggage at the airport and I'm not sure what we would have done without his help figuring it all out. Samir at Enjoy Jordan was also always available if we needed further assistance with anything.

Jordan is a fascinating country with unparalleled historic sites, natural beauty, and friendly people. Sharif's love for the country was plain to see, and the value we were getting was obvious when we compared our experience to that of the dozens of people getting out of the big buses. I highly recommend working with him if you do decide to make the trip.

This was a pleasant stay. The dinner, cooked in an underground oven, was a highlight. The cabins were nice, and the staff was friendly.

This was by far the best hotel of the trip. The property was super nice, and while there wasn't much else to do in the area, it was a great place to relax. The only downside was the intense heat.

This was a unique and enjoyable experience, although it was hotter than expected due to the lack of air conditioning. Despite this, the option of sleeping on the roof at night was a nice touch. It's really an awesome place, I'd just advise people to go in the cooler months.

Contrary to the itinerary, this wasn't a hike but a relaxed walk around historic sites. Still, the experience was enjoyable and flexible.

This was a superb experience despite the heat. The area was beautiful, and having a guide who provided lunch was a great touch. It was also private, which made it more enjoyable.

The itinerary suggested a camel ride, but it ended up being a four by four tour. The tour was fantastic and was preferred.
