    For this tour to visit a few attractions in Jordan, I did not have a tour guide, instead a driver was assigned to me to drive me around the places I signed for.  Osama, the driver, was really good.  He picked me up in the hotels where I stayed, and always on time, and took good care of me.  On my last day in Jordan, I went to Aqaba, and at the end of the day, Osama invited me, and the other person doing this tour, to have dinner, all Jordan dishes, at his cousin's apartment.  Dinner was delicious.  Thank you Osama and his relatives who were very at the dinner and we were treated really good.

    Overall Petra Tours satisfied my expectations.  Mohammed, the one in charge from his Petra office, always responded to all my emails, answering my questions when I was inquiring about the tour, itinerary, and prices.  In Petra, he came to the hotel to find out how was I doing and to know if everything was OK.  

    Hotels were not luxurious but adequate and clean and OK locations.  The hotel in Petra was the one I did not like much and the manager or supervisor was not friendly and in need of attitude adjustment.  The TV was not working and neither the phone,  When I went to the reception to report this, he asked me, in a tone I did not like, "are you going to make any calls?" I said Yes, to call you to report what was not working in the room.  Other thatn this incident, everything else was fine. 

     Thank you Petra Tours.

    I have to say our tour was FAB. Our driver, Khalab was very good and took good care of us. We got to see soooo much of your country in such a short time, but would have loved to stay and see more! There is sooo much to see there!

    We ran into a co-worker from the ship in Jerash who offered to take us to lunch. After speaking with Khalab though, we were not able to go. Khalab said that our lunch was included and probably thought that he was going to kidnap us! He was very protective which was really nice. He definitely was a great driver and drove us everywhere.

    The only real downer was the guide at Petra. We got there at about 3pm and met with him. He really rushed us through. As we got to the center of Petra we decided to split up as 3 wanted to climb and the other 4 wanted to go to the monastery. The guide negotiated prices for the mules for us. When we got to the end of Petra he left us as did the guy he negotiated with leaving us with a teenager and a boy that was probably 6-7 years old to take us to the monastery. After a few steps going up my friend's mule who was in front of me, started to go to the edge by the crevice, slipped and at that point the saddle and my friend fell to the ground. I was the last so my mule saw the other mules up ahead and began to run up the steps to get with them. No one was supervising anything. My mule went off the steps to the left where there were no steps and slipped making me fall off my mule. Fortunately neither of us was hurt but it could have been really bad if my friend had fallen into the crevice and if we had broken anything. We were just bruised and cut a bit.

    Other than that we had a wonderful tour and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Many, many thanks for arranging everything and allowing us to see your wonderful country. I would definitely recommend you.
