Traveler Reviews

  • 06-Nov-2019

    My wife and I were quite disappointed in this tour for a number of reasons. First, emails sent to Zaid Tours were not answered, we had to call at our own expense to confirm. On the day of the tour, we were waiting right at the entrance to our hotel for our driver, but the driver did not find us - we eventually found him in the lounge, scrolling on his phone. The listing says that the driver is supposed to speak English, but he barely spoke English, and thus the hours of driving were spent in awkward silence. When we got to Umm Qais, we were informed that our local guide would not be there for another 45 minutes, and we could either wait or explore the site on our own. We didn't want to wait so we went inside on our own. We stopped at the visitor center - which was unmanned, and had no information about the site - only some brochures about Aqaba. Thus we wandered around with no idea what we were looking at. Also, we had gone to Jerash previously, and Umm Qais is shabby in comparison. Just go to Jerash instead, it's much better.

    We did enjoy the visit to Aljoun Castle, which is why I give the tour two stars instead of one.

    Finally, the last thing that annoyed us was the fact that for some reason, the driver did not allow us to keep the ticket stubs for the sites we visited. A small thing, but we like to keep them as keepsakes, and it was just one more issue on a bad day full of them.
