    Border crossing was a breeze, I was very apprehensive traveling into Jordan, but it was super fast. At all time our guide and the bus driver were directing us in the right direction. I never felt alone or unprotected. Petra archeological site is amazing, while the "treasury" is movie famous is only one building in a huge city. We walk close to 10 miles and we couldn't see it all. We went over the mountain to get to the Treasury overlook and that trail took to much time, instead of looking twice at the same building go to the Monastery or tray ti visit more. If you can stay longer.

    Petra took our breath away. Petra was my sister and my bucket list destination. Yes, we were a fairly big group of 37 but our Jordanian guide and driver made it so easy for us. Abdallah, our guide was efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and really took the time to explain facts and unknown tidbits, you will be lucky to have him as your guide to Petra. Jamal our driver was kind and kept us safe, my sister who is prone to motion sickness during rides did not experience any of that because Jamal made sure that our bus ride was smooth. Both Jamal and Abdullah took care of our big group. I highly recommend this tour organization and specially our Jordanian guide and driver. They made us feel comfortable and well cared for.

    Great tour! We left Jerusalem with a group from Tel Aviv and headed to the border. At the border, you need to cross as a group without a guide and meet the Jordanian guide and bus after Israeli immigration. It was a little confusing but a staff member helped us get through paying the border fee (181 shekels per person that you can pay in advance as informed the night before by the tour operator) and getting the exit permit. On the Jordanian side we paid an entry and exit fee to the guide right away (40 Jordanian entry per person + 10 Jordanian exit per person) and the guide got us a group visa. After the border we visited Mount Nebo and St George's Greek Orthodox Church. The tour guide said they don't visit Jerash anymore. We then got a buffet lunch and went to Petra. The Petra camp was beautiful and there was a buffet dinner. We left camp very early the next day to be some of the first people in Petra. Some people stayed with the guide in the beginning but everyone had the option to explore on their own. This allowed people to get photos by the Treasury with no one in the background!! We then got a buffet lunch outside of the park and continued to the border. The border crossing was very hectic (going through security and Israeli immigration) so be prepared to force your way through the lines. The tour operator said the bus would leave after a certain amount of time since some people get held up in immigration and provided instructions on what to do if the bus left. This amounted to getting a shared taxi back to Jerusalem and being reimbursed by the tour company. Everyone in our group made it through (40 people) thankfully! Overall a great way to see Petra!!

    Mahdi the tour guide was very kind, knowledgeable and funny too. Made it totally worth it! The camp, felt under our expectations. The infrastructure was in unatended conditions (unclean, dusty, bad smell, bed sheets with holes, etc). All the staff was in sweatpants, no ambience music, incense or other gimmicks to inmmerse you in the "bedouin camp" context. Such a pity... great views though for foto ops!

    Really enjoyed this tour - highlight for me was the Jordanian tour guide, Mahdi, who was really informative and had a great sense of humour. The coach driver was also really welcoming. Petra is breathtaking and getting there early was well worth it to miss the crowds

    From the start to the end of our two day tour to Petra, it was a truly wonderful experience! Our guide and bus driver were exceptional, knowledgable and friendly. The crossing into Jordan and back into Israel was handled smoothly. We felt cared for and appreciated. If you are in the area Petra is a must see!

    The guide Mahdi was excellent. However, Abraham hostel tours did not mange it well. First, I wanted to spend at least part of each of 2 days in Petra. On the first day I visited sites I was not interested in, with only 1 day in Petra. Second, I was told specifically (I asked) that a bathroom with shower would be available adjacent to the tent I was staying in. It was not and I was not told that this option was available for additional money. Third although Mahdi was excellent, during the 6.5 hours in Petra, he was with us for less than half the time, telling us that for the remainder of the time we were on our own. The reason I signed up for a tour was to have a guide with me during the entire time at the Petra site so that relevant things could be explained to me. The limitation on the tour guide's presence was not revealed to me when I signed up.

    We had a very good guide in Jordan who explained many things about the country and the places we visited. Petra is very impressive and a must visit sight

    Well organized, unique experience. We loved the Beduin Camp- very unique, great atmosphere,friendly. I liked that we started early morning to see Petra- we beat t crowds and it was still cool. This tour gave us plenty of time to explore Petra’s large area. We spent about 6 hours leisurely taking it all in.
