About one week has passed since we got back to reality again.
We are still overwhelmed by the fantastic arrangements you have created for us five. The journey became to an amazing adventure! Everything was so well arranged by you. We were met like VIP:s at the airport and was driven by the very,very nice Mohammad, who we had the pleasure to met once again when he drow us to Damascus. The day after our arrival we met the lovely Emad who took us further on. He was very concerning and openminded ,asked us all the time if we had any special wishes and gladly effected them if we had any. He was not only the talented driver he was our guide also during the trip south and fullfilled that task very well.
We also recommend the very nice guide we had at Petra. He was interested enough to learn our names, which is not very usual.
As we arrived in Syria Yaseen Allatif met us at the border. He assisted us through the border formalities and welcomed us to Syria with gifts and maps to us all. Then he accompanied us the whole way trough Syria and all the places we planned to see. He was a wonderful man, extremely talented in telling us all about the old places and the new Syria. He was really a perfect guide and a very nice companion. He escorted us to and inside the airport in Damascus, very concerning. We really recommend him to be used for other tourists. Please transfer our information to the Syrian Travel agency, Sherezade! In Syria the driver was Ahmad, who patiently waited for us in many places. He was also very nice although a bit absent in his mind, thinking of his newborn child 2 days before we met him. Despite this he fullfilled his mission with skilled driving and a good humour.
The journey has really lived up to our expectations except one thing. That was the accommodation, which exseeded all our expectations. From the wonderful rooms in Amman and Petra “Guest House”, the latter not at all a guest house but a luxorious hotel perfectly situated and comfortable , to the amazing hotels in Damascus and Aleppo as taken from Thousand and one Night!! We have never in our lives stayed at any hotel like these, with such an athmosphere from the 17th century and stylish decoration. We were so happy and talked many times about the wonderful Manar who had arranged it. So the accommodation was really one of the greatest highlights on our journey!
We will also remember all kindness, friendliness and concern from everybody we met both in Jordan and Syria. I hope we can pay a new visit to this region some time in the future. I will also tell you that we have really recommended your agency and specially you to our friends. Many are very interested to go, some of them very seriously.
Now we have our memories left and all the pictures and a video, which I have started to edit.
We all wish you good luck in the future and bring you a deep gratefulness!
With much love and regards, Åke, Sweden
The trip was just perfect! I would like to thank you and your team for the great job! And also the group fell in love with Stella and thanks to her with Jordan! All of them said they would definitely come back for holiday and two of them even decided to stay till the 10th and went to Wadi Rum :o)
Hope to bring some more business to Jordan this year as I really enjoyed the partner and the country.
Thank you very much once again!

Veuillez transmettre les remerciements de la compagnie à tous les membres de votre équipe.
We like to thank Jordan Select for arranging a great holiday for us.
We had an excellent time in Jordan and enjoyed the whole itinerary.
Our driver, Sufyan, is excellent and we appreciate his help when we are in Jordan. Everything went smoothly with no major hiccups. He drove safely (the whole time), answered a lot of our questions and was responsive to our requests.
We will definitely recommend your group and Sufyan to our other friends in Hong Kong!
Leo and Noel, Hong Kong
The days in Jordan were very nice, the whole group did enjoy this trip.
I want to give Jordan Select Tours a big compliment for organizing the dayprogram.
From the moment we arrived everything was well taken care of.
Conclusion, with the help of Jordan Select Tours our Fam trip to Jordan has been as great success!
Jordan is really something we can advise to our customers especially for our Incentive Department.
My best regards,
Inge, The Netherlands
I want to thank you because clients have been very,very, very satisfied
for all your services, and over all of Mr.Moahmed, their guide,
professional and friendly.
All hotels have been so beatiful, over their immagination. Just a little note for Aquaba, because on Fridays many persons from Arabia come to hotel to spend their weekend, so the stay in Raddison is not so quite and relaxing. But anyway all was fantastic , also the weather!
Thanks for all, hope to contact you soon.
My best regards,
I just wanted to drop you a note to say 1 million thank you for all your help in making this holiday absolutely magnificent.
Your flexibility, great advise, patience and perseverance made the whole experience extraordinary and the whole travel experience effortless.
Suheil was brilliant, very polite, flexible and very knowledgeable. This proved to be extremely helpful as we clearly needed guidance.
The airport staff were also lovely, very welcoming and very helpful.
I have to say that this has in no doubt been the most stress free holiday we have ever had.
I will definitely pass on your details to anyone who is considering going to Jordan on holidays.
Many many thanks again… We will be back!
All the best,
rieccoci tornati alla vita di tutti i giorni!
Volevo, anche a nome di tutta la mia famiglia, rivolgerle un ringraziamento per la ottima organizzazione del tour e per l’impeccabile lavoro di Hosam che ci ha consentito di apprezzare e far rimanere nei nostri cuori uno splendido ricordo della meravigliosa Giordania.
Un caro saluto.
Thank you very much for your kind hospitality and generous arrangements.
Everything was wonderful; all hotels, all restaurants, the whole itinerary, welcoming and farewell at the airport, and of course our guide Ali!
I believe Jordan can be a breathtaking experience for all kinds of people.
Ali besides being a very knowledgeable guide with excellent English, he is very intellectual, with lots of intriguing discussions and sense of humor. He added an unbelievable human aspect to our trip. It is very uncommon to have such an all-in-one person as your tour guide. He set a positive mood for the whole group!
Petra & especially Wadi Rum were the highlights of our trips.
Our last minute change in Wadi Rum has changed our lives; believe me it felt like we were in space, so far away from this world, and everything else seemed so unimportant and useless!
Thank you very much for your complimentary organization, we all appreciated it very much.
We enjoyed a wonderful experience in your Country last month and want to thank your company and particularly our guide Mohammed for your excellent service and efforts to make our few days so enjoyable.
We will have no difficulty recommending Jordan as a great place to visit and Jordan Select as a great company to make sure their trip is memorable.
Geoff & Velma, Australia
Receive for my wife, me and my friends our congratulations for everything.
We are specially satisfied with our driver Samir (always ready to help us with a smile in his lips).Tell to him of all of us.
Thank you for everything.
Sorry for not contacted you before, but the new year has started with very much work for us.
The Daimler Chrysler group was very satisfied with the arrangements and they have lots of nice memories from the tour.
Lotta Wessfeldt, Sweden
I would like to thank you very much for your great cooperation and assistance.
The clients were very pleased about all services you have provided.
They are keen to express their appreciation and gratitude to you and your colleagues.
I hope our cooperation will be long and fruitful.
We have just come back to Italy after our holiday in Jordan. Everything has been beautiful and perfect, the tour and our staying at Aqaba. I and my family thank you for all your work! In particular we want you to know that our driver Ibrahim has been really very kindly and professional with us. Please send him our greetings!
Isabella and family, Italy
Thank you so much for making our trip to Jordan one of the best we have ever had. You and your team where absolutely fantastic and so easy to work with. Please know how grateful I am for such immense professional work.
On a personal note: I hope you stay in touch and will know that our doors are open should ever you come to one of our cities. I would personally like to see you again and hope you will one day be in Hong Kong. You have an amazing country and I know that it would be one of the best destinations in the world were it not for a bag of politics.
John A. Wright, USA
I just returned and I must say that you company did a fabulous job at putting the tour together. What an incredible place, Jordan. My driver, Ebad, made Jordan come to life. He is to be commended and you are very lucky to have him on your team! Please say hello for me when you see him.
Again, thank you so much!
We had a fantastic time, thank you so much! I have been recommending Jordan and Jordan Select Tours to all our friends and family since we got back. I think Petra was the highlight but the Movenpick at the Dead Sea was just fantastic. We also enjoyed the hubbly bubble shiska pipes! I think i’ll get one for the house…
Again thanks very much for everything, the ground agents you use are great. They couldn’t do enough for us and it made the trip very relaxing not having to worry about any of the normal travel hassles. A special thank you should go to our driver for the week, Mansour Mansour. He was an absolute gentleman and he struck the right balance between chatting to us and tellnig us about Jordan and leaving us to sleep on the journeys! He really was a lovely guy and we couldn’ t speak highly enough of him.
Finally, one more big thank you for everything!
Paddy & Caoimhe, UK
First we would like to thank you being so accommodating with us when we missed our flight. We really appreciate it and you were great to work with on scheduling and rescheduling our itinerary. Thank you so much!
Our driver, Badder was great! He was always on time to pick us up at all our hotels and sites. He even took the time out to write down and teach us some Arabic words and phrases. He also did a great job to make sure we experienced the food and culture in Jordan. Which we really appreciated! He also knew great places for us to stop and take pictures which he would do so on our drive to our destinations and would always offer to take pictures for us so we could be in them. He did a great job!
Thanks, Bryan and Celia, UK
Having been in the Travel Business myself, I know how important constructive feed-back is, but in this case we genuinely cannot think of any constructive criticism, except to say that the world does not know enough about what you have to offer….more advertising!!!
Our drivers were Hitham Khaleel and Esam and they were both outstanding. We cannot compliment them enough….Well informed, helpful, good driving, and easy to get along with. A great support in the matter of the swallowed Credit Card!!
A real pleasure and people you can be proud of. Very comfortable vehicles too!
We had two guides as well, Ma’moun at Petra – a MINE of amazing information, and we felt it a priviledge to be on the receiving end of all that knowledge.
Beauty at Jerash was just as pleasant, and gave us lots of interesting insights into the site.
Airport assistence was spot on and VERY helpful….what would we have done without you???? You obviously have all the right contacts, Mr. Zghoul, and we were impressed to see you helping the two ladies in distress as well!!
The accommodation was amazing, and we felt it was lucky that we got it at the END of the tour otherwise we would have been spoilt for the rest! All hotel staff very pleasant and helpful, rooms and service without fault.
Our overall impression of the tour was absolutely excellent! Mr. Mahommed and Jasmine were extremely helpful and accommodating in the matter of changing our schedule and we were most grateful, as it would have been terrible to miss the Dead Sea!!!! Many thanks for the No Charge change to the Kempinsky!
And so – ten out of ten!!!! We cannot think of even a tiny fault!!!!
Thanks again for everything and we will certainly be raving about Jordan to whoever we tell about out trip.
Kindest regards to all, Jenny, South Africa
We are now back in Australia after a far too short a trip in your country. you asked us to complete a questionnaire on our trip. We have searched everywhere but have not been able to find it. I will however try to guess what is in it and give the following answers.
1. arrival process. – Excellent, Everything was handled efficiently and effectively with the minimum of fuss and the briefing on our schedule was appropriate.
2. Driver – Both Esam and Samir were excellent. They were good fun to be with and very engaging in conversations. They were always on time and waiting for us at the required time. The cars were clean and very comfortable
3. Accommodation – The Crowne Plaza deserves an excellent but as we had had some really great accommodation in Egypt we downgraded it slightly mainly because. the room size was slightly smaller than our other hotels but the view from our room just breathtaking. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and we feel that this is the only place we would stay should we return.
4. The guide into Petra.- I know this was out of your control but he was excellent. Carol was not feeling well and he made sure that we walked at her pace and made the walk in as special as possible. He then took Carol all the way back to the hotel. This was above what we could reasonably have expected.
5. Overall – We have nothing but good things to say about the entire trip. It was perfect from start to finish. We would certainly recommend your company to others travelling to the region and would also use your company again should we return.
The only downside was the trip was far too short. I could have spent another day in Petra itself and reading your brochure there are now many other places that are on our list to see.
T hope this answers most of what the questionnaire is looking for. If i have left anything out then e-mail me back and I will answer.
Thanks you again for being part of a very special experience!
Keith & Carol, Australia, Mariangela
Ti ringraziamo tantissimo per l’organizzazione del viaggio in Giordania e per i servizi che ci hai dato, anche i partecipanti sono stati molto molto contenti di tutto.
I (and the whole group) would like to thank you for the tour you organised for us in Jordan. Everything was ok, a very good guide, superb hotels, a fine program, good assistance at the airport, a beautiful country and very kind people. We will recommend your organisation by our friends who want to visit Jordan!
I would like to congratulate your organization for the wonderful time we had in Jordan earlier this month! Everything was perfect and well planned. The hotels were of first quality and both the driver and the tour guide were very helpful and professional!
I dare saying that everything exceeded our expectations!
Many thanks to you and all the staff for helping us have such a memorable holiday in Jordan. We came back with very fond memories of the country and its people. In particular, a big thanks to Ala. I think having a good driver makes all the difference. His sensitivity and local interest made a big impression on us. He certainly helped us understand the people and culture on a more detailed level and we particularly appreciated the efforts he made with suggestions for sights and especially with local guides, all of which were excellent.
This is the greetings from a Chinese tourist who has just experienced 3 days fabulous Jordan tour. The gorgeous landscapes made the 3-day-tour an everlasting memory which can not be erased in my mind. Last but not the least the professional tour guide job from Aziz Copty is the most brilliant point in the process! He did a great help for us to know and experience the Jordan culture as we will tell what happened in Jordan to every Chinese people. I wish I would come back to Jordan and at that time I will also chose Jordan Select as my partner!
Thanks million to your company and Aziz again!
Well what can I say – we had a delightful 4 days in Jordan – it’s a wonderful place and had such an interesting and good time.
There were so many good points – from the exhilarating 4×4 ride in Wadi rum to floating in the Dead sea. Not forgetting the highlight
which was of course Petra – doing this by night was extra special , we looked forward to seeing it by day – which was just as awe inspiring.
Mansouir (our driver) was nothing short of excellent – co-ordinating our tour and ‘fitting in’ all the sights, in fact he almost became
one of the family. I must congratulate you on the choice of hotels, they got better as we progressed, and the Movenpick at the Dead Sea was incredible – we were sorry it was only one night and wished it were two.
As Christians the visit to Mt Nebo and Bethany meant so much.
Thanks again for arranging a wonderful holiday we had a great time.
Best Regards, DAVE, USA
Jordan Select Tours is the best way to see the country of Jordan. We still can’t believe we went from the north to the south of the whole country. From the very beginning, JST made our trip in this country so easy. We were met at the airport before passport control and led through the controls very quickly and easily. Then we met our driver, Firas Ahmed. He was the most important part of the success of our trip. We drove through all kinds of weather: mostly sunshine, but then lightning, hard rain, fierce wind, and a blinding sandstorm. Throughout all of this, Firas was the safest driver we have ever had in our travels. Safety is of utmost importance and something we don’t take for granted. He was so knowledgeable about his beloved country. We had come to Jordan to see Petra, and it didn’t disappoint us. The desert of Wadi Rum was breathtaking, and we were glad Firas found us an enclosed jeep since it was very windy and cold while we were there. We spent our last night in Jordan at the Dead Sea. We had gale force winds, but it only added to the adventure. This will be a trip we will remember for a long time to come.
Thank you Firas! Thank you Jordan Select Tours!
I am writing this email to thank you all out there in Jordan who helped me with the tour and for giving me such a wonderful time in these 4 days I spent in Jordan! Peter, the driver, works in a extremelly professional manner, as well as being a great person and a great character.
I really enjoyed my trip and for sure you will be well recommended to anyone willing to go to Jordan.
