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!!

Amazing amazing amazing! This was our second tour with Abraham tours, and I can honestly say they really exceeded my expectations ! This to Jordan was absolutely amazing!

We met at the Abraham Hostel then boarded a comfortable bus to the boarder. At the boarded you Pat your visa fees. It took like 30-45 mins for our whole group to get through, but it was actually easy! Then we boarded another bus on the Jordan side where we met our great tour guide Abdullah. Very knowledgeable guide! We headed to the city whew we visited a church in Madaba where we saw the oldest map of the this Middle Eastern region. So cool!

Then we headed to Mount Nebo where Moises showed the Israelites the promise land (at the distance). Such and special place with beautiful mosaic displays of ancient art!

After Nebo we head to eat lunch at a restaurant right around the corner from Mount Nebo, and oh my gosh! That was one of the best meals! Then we headed to see a Crusaders castle on the top of a hill and it was very impressive. Then we headed to Petra! There we stayed in a Bedouin camp. It was clean, comfortable, friendly staff, and great food!

Even tho our tour did not include Petra by night originally, our tour guide gave us the option to go see Petra by night for a small fee. We couldn’t pass that one in a life time opportunity!

Abraham tours are very organized and have excellent guides! Our driver was also great and very friendly!

I generally do not go on group tours. My wife and I like to go out on our own or hire a private guide. On this trip, the group helped make it fun and when I fell, many came to my aid with bandages, gauze, and a bit of sympathy.

Our tour began at the Abraham Hostel in Jerusalem where we boarded a very nice bus. Exiting Israel was a bit confusing, but we made it and were welcomed by our Jordanian courteous and capable driver. Our tour guide, Abdullah, warmly greeted us at the Jordanian border and with our passports in hand did everything to make the process painless.

We made two stops. One was at Mt. Nebo where the Lord gave Moses a view of the Promised Land and where Moses might be buried. The Franciscans are caretakers of the site and have proven to be wonderful custodians of the site and chapel. Standing on the mountain and looking at the green of the River Jordan valley with Dead Sea on the left and Jericho on the right was very moving.

When we arrived at Petra it was already dark. Some of the group wanted to see Petra by night and Abdullah graciously accommodated them. My wife and I were tired and instead chose sleep in one of the comfortable tents at the Bedouin Camp. It is in a stunning setting and our tent was what we expected, rustic yet comfortable (well except for the mattress.)

Walking in Petra with all the carved sandstone buildings makes you grateful that the Nabateans took the time and patience to shape the building facades, had the expertise to bring in water, and build such a magnificent place in which to live. Abdullah walked with us to the treasury then set us free to explore on our own.

I can’t say enough good things about the tour. I wanted Petra to live up to my high expectations. It did, in part, because of this tour and our guide.

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.

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.

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.

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

Lovely tour, our guide was very friendly and we had the opportunity to explore petra by ourselves. We got to stay in the desert, we went in march and it was freezing in our cabins but there was a lot of blankets in the bed. I had one of the best meals ever in the bedouin camp.

one thing that I was sad about was not having time to visit amman as described in the itinerary and on the border to get our visa was a bit confusing/took extra time.
A bit expensive but I would recommend (this was before pandemic hit hard)

I would have given the tour an "Excellent" rating. The transfer to Jordan, the tour guide and our bus driver in Jordan were amazing - as were the buses that transported us. The Bedouin camp was very nice, the food at the restaurants - all acceptable. The return to Jerusalem from Jordan, however, was unacceptable. We were placed on a bus that was in terrible condition - including paper stuffed into the overhead vents (I am assuming this was due to leaks). We were told not to sit in certain seats due to leaks and the smell of mold clearly indicated that the leaks were an ongoing problem that had not been fixed. Abraham tours should fix this issue as it leaves a last bad impression of the tour.

What an amazing experience this trip was! I have been wanting to do this for a while and a work trip to Jerusalem gave me that kick to finally do it. Me being a planner (both professionally and as part of my OCD-ness) researched a lot of tour companies and Abraham Tours received overwhelming positive feedback. Everything was very thoughtfully planned, from pick-up time and what to expect through the border crossing, to sleeping accommodations, dining, etc. Our tour guide while in Jordan, Yazan, was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and was very patient with our group and the hundreds of questions that were asked. During the tours he gave us plenty of time to explore on our own, which was greatly appreciated. From a scale of 1 to 10, the trip itself was a 10, but Yazan made it a 15! Would definitely recommend Abraham Tours, and thank you, Yazan, for sharing your amazing country with us!
