Wadi Rum private tour and excellent service
Jan 2020 • Friends
We found Echo Tours office during looking map of Jordan in Aqaba city, and we found there perfect service. They offered us map, advised us how to get by rental car to Wadi Rum, where to buy a Jordan internet SIM card, they arranged for us perfect and professional Wadi Rum tour guide and were so nice and friendly with perfect English 👍🏻 I can really recommend Echo Tours in Aqaba 😊

Expectations were met!
Oct 2019
We are a family with 4 childeren (14,12,8,6) and we had high expectations from this historic site.
Those expations wre met from the comfortable and professional logistic arrangments (hotel pick up, stop on the way) through the quality of the guide who met us on site. We had a great day to be remmeber for long time.

A very good service. Drivers arrived on time, polite with clean cars. Everything was prepared and planed according to our demands (Petra and Wadi Rum). The guiding tours were fantastic. The agency was available at all times with a very good connection using WhatsApp

Amazing Petra
Jul 2019
Jordan Echo Tours is a great travel company to choose to plan your trip to Jordan. I was recommended by a family friend who had used them previously and I arranged a Petra Day Tour with them. They respond quickly, are very helpful at answering any questions and treat you like family. I couldn't get a flight into Aqaba and they arranged for one of their drivers Mustafa to pick us up in Amman and drive us down - he was awesome. They also made sure to follow up with us throughout our trip to make sure everything was going well and that we were enjoying. I can't say enough good things about them and their staff.

Excellent tour by Jordan Echo
Feb 2019 • Family
We visited Petra on 20th February with a private tour by Jordan Echo. Myself and family thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Jordan echo is an excellent company run by a very good manager Eslam. Eslam arranged a nice clean car and lovely driver by the name of Yasser. Yasser is typical Jordanian with warm heart, good sense of humour and excellent host. He has a wealth of knowledge. On the way he explained various things about Jordan. This was actually our second attempt to see Petra as the first time we tried on 18th February but it snowed heavily in Petra mountains and tour got cancelled. Yasser drove us back safely through snow.
Petra is beautiful and we were given delicious buffet lunch at Petra. The lunch was included in tour. We also did Petra by night which gave a different perspective of Petra.The guide at Petra by the name of Hassan was excellent and had an encyclopaedia of knowledge. The guide was included in the tour.
Overall we were very happy with the tour and we liked Jordan Echo so much that we also did 2 additional tours with them to Dead sea and Wadi rum. Many thanks to Eslam, Yasser and Jordan Echo company for making our Jordan holiday a great success.

Not to Be Missed
Jan 2019 • Couples
So let's start with the obvious- Petra is a site to see. In terms of visual eye candy, you can book almost any trip there and it will be worth it. Going on some bad advice, we decided to only make a day trip there and stay in Aqaba. This I would not recommend. There are some hotels very close to Petra that you can stay at while visiting both Petra and Wadi Rum. Our guide told us, and I think there is some truth to it, that you need three full days here. I think you could power through in one, but only if you are already in Petra and not wasting time commuting. Our guide was friendly and seemingly knowledgeable about the sites. Be prepared for a two hour drive from Aqaba that is beyond boring. You will also be stopped several times at police check points. This is routine in Jordan and does not take long. Our guide was based in Petra so we did not meet him until we got there. Our driver was very nice and did his best to make conversation and speak English. Most drivers do not do this at all. My only issue was that the car was old and not nice for that long of a drive. Not his fault, as it appears to be his personal car. The company should have provided him with a van or other vehicle.
We were thrown off by the price of this tour when first booking and wondered why all the tours cost so much. Its because the ticket price is 55 JOD per person, which is included. So the price is not as bad as it seems. Avoid getting trapped into taking a horse down the path to begin the journey. It's more fun to do the walk. However, our guide spent too much time at the start. The Treasury building is the highlight and what everyone wants to see. It's what you want pictures of and what you expect. It's a solid 45min-1 hour walk to get to that point. Not a hard walk, but be prepared. I wish our guide moved us through that faster. However, he has been doing this long enough that he knew the good spots for pictures and took most of ours for us without us asking. Unlike most guides, this was not a ploy for tips. The Treasury is amazing, but only the start. As you continue to walk through, you see so much more. More than we knew was even there, which is why if you only have one day, move faster through the beginning so you can see more. Don't waste time with the people selling things there apart from one woman (American I think) who moved there years ago and became part of the society. She has a lovely shop with silver pieces you simply cannot get elsewhere. She also has a book she has written about her experiences. Worth a few minutes to chat with her at least.
Our guide left us halfway through and told us we had about 30 minutes to explore and walk back out to the car. Again, it's an hour walk out moving at a quick pace. The lunch is included, but bring snacks, because unless you leave Petra early, you will not eat until after 4pm.
If you are in Aqaba, I would suggest this trip, but again, I think that you would be better off to stay in Petra, get yourself over there, and either explore on your own, or just hire a guide once you get there if you are looking to save some money and spend more time seeing this new wonder of the world.

Driver was not good!!!
Apr 2018 • Couples
Driver picked us up at the cruise ship port in time. He could not hardly speak any English so was not good on explaining the sites to Petra. He did connect us to a great guide that did the guided tour through Petra. The experience in Petra was unbelieveable with the main sites still in excellent condition. Our lunch was not very good and the driver was again not very helpful. Overall we thought what we paid was away overpriced.

Hi dear Murphymj, First, we are so sorry that you did not get a good English speaking driver as it should be with English speaking driver with our tours who are not escorted with the guide from the cruise ship. What happened that day, it was so busy for us since we had more than 9 tours from the same cruise ship with more than 140 clients and that driver was supposed to go with another tour with English speaking guide and you should go with English speaking driver. Sorry, that was the mistake of the one who was in charge of dividing drivers among the different tours. You could read in our reviews before that we did not have this problem before since, in our policy, we always escort tours with good English drivers but unfortunately that mistake happened with you and that why again we would like pass all apologises of our team to you.For the lunch, it was almost the same reason as it was so busy there but , of course, it is not excuse and we are so sorry for. Here is my email (a.alqatawneh@jordanechotours.com) as you could contact me to fix it with price to make you happy since your satisfaction will be be always our main goal. Finally, I would like to thank you for giving time to pass your feedback about your tour which is so valued to correct any mistake for you and our valued clients. As I would like to thank you for your good feedback about the guide and other services. My best regards

Easy as pie and unbelievably worth it
May 2018
From the moment I contacted Jordan Echo Tours to the minute we returned from Petra the trip was magical. Jordan Echo dealt easily with changes I had to make of the persons (both number and names) agreeing to the tour. The driver was at the port well in advance of our meeting time and drove us to the entry of Petra where our l guide met us. The guide was very informative and went personally with us down the canyon, stopping to give us various historical details. The driver had given me a cell phone with which to contact him when we were ready to leave the site. Afterward we went to a nearby restaurant with excellent food (an ample buffet with soups, salads, meats and desserts) and a view of Petra. They knew my birthday was the next day and surprised me with a delicious cake. All agreed it was an excellent day and good value!

Family trip to Petra
Mar 2018 • Family
This trip has been very solid arrangement from first foot in the this small travel arrangement company till arriving back at the Hotel again in the evening.
Car completely new and driver provided "on board" wifi for our teenage daughters.
And very safe driving with a relaxed attitude behind the wheel.

Petra is very big historical site and if you really want to explore you need much more than a few hours.
One thing though be prepared for LOT of tourists and activities using animals to make money from tourists.
We decided even the horse riding where paid for in the tour not to do it as we actually felt these animals deserved something better.
This is not the problem of Echo Tours directly, they did absolutely good to give us a good experience.
The guide provide at the site happened to be very local and has both written a book on the area and when young helped on some of the excavations and he told a lot of things about Petra and seems to enjoy his work a lot though head done this for many years.

We will recommend this also for families with kids.
Echo tours helped us finding the book as well mentioned before and even trusted us to come back after the tour to pay final part of the payment

They also arrange a lot of other things go visit them before you go anywhere else

Kind regards
