We couldn't have been happier with our travel experience. We traveled first with a group of 20, then visited Jordan as a couple. Our guides and drivers were excellent...full of knowledge and generous in their sharing of it along with personal insights. Always there...early....for pickups. Really made this trip a peaceful, meaningful experience.

Murad Najib from Guiding Star (Experience Jordan) planned a trip for my husband, myself, our daughter, son-in-law and two young grandchildren to tour Jordan. He was extremely helpful and flexible. Our trip was fabulous. The guide, Anton, was marvelous. He was patient, kind , extremely knowledgeable and wonderful with our grandchildren. They loved being with him. We have traveled extensively...

Do you want the best tour agency? Go with Guiding Star! We spent about 10 days touring with them in January; we booked our trip with Trinity Travel In Lenexa, KS who have employed Guiding Star every January and June for many years. We spent several days in Jerusalem and travelled north to the Sea of Galilee, Nazareth, Caperaum, Tabgah,... More

We booked through Amman2Jerusalem for our trip in Jordan and Jerusalem. In Jerusalem, we were handled by the Guiding Star with our tour guide Sam and driver Issa. The tour was really well organized starting from the pick up time at the border. We were welcome by our tour guide and the Mercedes Van with the nice driver was waiting... More

We used the driver pick up service to get across from Amman in Jordan to Jerusalem Israel. We then had thr driver at our disposal for a few hours in Jerusalem before boarding our cruise ship. Whilst it isnt the cheapest option on the market, the tour operators were well organised, professional, nice cars and the drivers spoke English. We... More

The guides, George and Suleiman from Guiding Star Tours owned by a Christian were knowledgeable enough and professional. They did a satisfactory job and their drivers Nazeen in Israel and Sala in Jordan skillfully and safely negotiated roads that were blocked by cars or obstacles that would make many drivers nervous. In the short 10-day pilgrimage, we had seen and... More

Usama was an amazing tour guide. I spent a week in Israel and he seemed to be able to answer every question I had with complete accuracy and even add in interesting information that would be difficult to find if you were to just google thing/place/person. Our bus driver was amazing as well, he kept the bus very clean and... More

Our tour group used Guiding Star for our week long visit to Israel. We had an excellent bus driver and Jarius is a fantastic tour guide - I'd give him an 11 out of 10! Thanks for a wonderful tour of Israel!

We engaged Guiding Star tours to transport us from Amman (Jordan) to Jerusalem. The transport included taking us to Jerash before the boarder crossing. We had read reviews on the boarder crossing into Israel and decided to pay an extra $100 US per person for the VIP service. Our time in Jerash was very good. We decided not to have... More

I thought it would be impossible, or at least very hard. But I just did a day trip to Jerusalem on a visit to the Dead Sea in Jordan. I was at a conference at the Dead Sea. I arrived two days earlier and stayed at the Hyatt in Amman. I knew Amman was only 60 klm from Jerusalem and... More
