Corresponded via email with Mr Hakam, who was always quick to reply and tweaked the tours to our liking. We were met at the quayside when our cruise ship arrived at 08:00am at Aqaba on time... More

What a great experience. Hakam, of Via Jordan, was prompt and easy to communicate with as we made our plans for the day. He even worked with a couple from the ship and me to coordinate their addition to our group (making certain it was OK with me and that they knew the plans for the day). We were the... More

We had ideal conditions for this 1/2 day basic tour of Petra: Sunny day but not too hot (20C), hazy sky which softened the sun, many, but not too many visitors. The agency used a 20 seater for our group of 15. Some fellow cruise ship passengers had negotiated privately with this agency and we paid USD 185 per person,... More

I am currently on a cruise in the middle east and experienced the highlight of our trip yesterday visiting Petra with the assistance of Via Jordan Travel, who, as other reviews indicate, have ample experience in providing passengers on cruises with an outstanding day trip to Petra from the Aqabah Port. However, I would also recommend Via Jordan to assist... More

We arrived in Aqaba via a cruise ship for a day tour of Petra and from start to finish, Via Jordan Tours were efficient, prompt, professional, entertaining and made it an educational and enjoyable experience for us and our children that cannot wait to go back! We highly recommend this company! We had some friends we met on the cruise... More

A friend and I traveled to Aqaba for two days and we hired Via Jordan Travel to guide us through Wadi Rum and Petra. Ashraf was our guide each day and I can’t imagine our time in Jordan without his insight. He made our entire experience in Jordan incredible. It wasn’t just his knowledge of Wadi Rum or of the...

We were picked up at Cruise Ship by a driver and tour guide. In the 2 hour drive to Petra the guide explained Jordanian customs and the sites along the way. Very informative. Once at Petra we had an excellent guided tour. We were picked up early and arrived at Petra well before the Cruise Ship tours arrived. Latter in... More

We could not recommend Via Jordan more highly. I made arrangements with the office, Hakam, before arriving and the information, pricing and suggestions were very clear. Our guide for both trips was Ashraf and he was terrific. Our day to Wadi Rum was not rushed at all and Ashraf was very knowledgeable about the area and its history and geology.... More

Petra is amazing, and the professional and passionate guide and facilities provided to us by Via Jordan Travels were the icing on the cake. Highly recommended. Good walking/hiking shoes and a good camera are recommended on this trip, Thank you Via Jordan Travel.

I booked this trip from the US primarily by email. Hakam at the main office was very responsive and on top of everything despite the 7-hr time difference. He often responded to questions and with information within minutes even if it was the middle of the night for him. We confirmed a private day tour of Petra with pick-up/drop-off at... More
