“Nice way to see Jordan, particularly if you like lots of detail :)”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

I tend to be more of the leisurely type of traveler. Truth be told, I don't care much about the details of past civilizations which I'll forget in a few minutes anyway. So while I was impressed with our tour guide's (Najjar) depth and breadth of knowledge, I wouldn't have minded a few more gaps in the narrative, to let me sit back and take it all in.

But if you're looking to take in all the nooks and crannies of Petra, Wadi Rum, and other sites, and enjoy being bombarded with the wealth of detail in Jordan's beautiful history, this seems like a great way to go.

Everything is well prepared for you, so that you just have to show up and enjoy. Felt totally safe and comfortable the whole time, which is not something I expected before visiting this part of the world.

“Petra Nights Tours Great Experience”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

We had seven days in Jordan and Petra Nights Tours helped us develop a perfect mix of nature, history and relaxation. Our driver and tour guides were helpful, friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. I particularly loved Wadi Rum for its natural splendor, my husband loved Petra for history and the wow factor. The Dead Sea was a brilliant end to the trip to chill out after the busier days touring. We a couple of impromptu changes to our itinerary allowing flexibility to our days. I highly recommend this group.

“Flexible Day Visit to Petra”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

I was in Tel Aviv for a short visit and had only a day to squeeze in a side trip to Petra. I generally favor do-it-yourself travel, but had never been to Jordan and with such a small window did not want to leave too much to chance. Petra Nights Tours provided the perfect balance of flexibility, convenience and expertise to allow me to maximize my time at Petra and see the site on my own terms. My driver Ahmad was waiting for me when I crossed the Eilat/Aqaba border and provided quick and efficient transport to Petra in a clean, wi-fi equipped van. He provided great information on the sights along the way and life in Jordan in general, stopping briefly for some fresh camel's milk and tea from a Bedouin friend in route. At the site, my guide Ali Ali-Masadeh was extremely knowledge and very attentive to my questions, customizing his 2 1/2 hour tour to my particular interests in Petra and my stamina and climbing ability. Despite the large crowd, Ali quickly got us away from the hordes to some fascinating, out-of-the way ruins, all the while providing a thorough historical commentary on the Nabatean and Roman inhabitants of the ancient city. Before he left me to explore on my own, he provided great advice on additional hikes I could take that would avoid the crowd and cover more fascinating ruins. One great feature is that PNT provided me with a Jordanian cell phone so that I could call Ali if I had any questions while exploring on my own, and so that I could call Ahmad to pick me up whenever I was done exploring. I didn't have to rush through the site to make a pre-ordained meeting time. One final nice touch -- on the drive back to Aqaba and the Eilat border, Ahmad pulled over at a Petra souvenir stand to buy me a Jordanian Kufiya as a birthday present -- then showed me the different styles in which the head piece is typically worn in Jordan.
In short -- the service I received was exceptional, personalized and informed. I give Petra Nights Tours my highest recommendation.

“Professional, dependable, and pleasant”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Our driver and our guides at Petra and Jerash were all terrific. They were prompt, professional, dependable, and pleasant. The car was very comfortable and even came stocked w/kleenex and bottled water. The guides were knowledgable. I would definitely recommend this group and use them again.

“Very good tour company, I Highly Recommend Petra Nights Tours”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

We had booked this company for an airport transfer because we got into Amman very late. We hadn't scheduled any tours because the other company we had tried to schedule through cancelled because we didn't pay "in time"(they sent me the link while I was sleeping and gave me 4 hours to pay, since we are across the world I didn’t wake up in time to pay).
Fast forward to arriving at the airport, we were greeted by a very nice driver, free Wi-Fi in the car to email home and let the family know we arrived safely. The driver asked if we had anything booked, when we told him no because we had been cancelled on he called his supervisor and asked if he could book us for the following day. We were able to get booked for two days for an Amman City Tour and the Dead Sea one day and Petra the second day. They recommended the appropriate amount of time and it was perfect for us because it is semi guided (you get a driver who is very knowledgeable, but you get to explore on your own pace). Wi-Fi is free in the car on your tours which is great. We really enjoyed our short time in Petra all thanks to Petra Nights Tours, had we not been lucky with booking them the first night we might have been stuck without a tour company. We were so thrilled they accommodated us on such short notic and their pricing was much more competitive than what we were originally looking at.
