Randy O., United States

I spent 3 weeks in the Middle East and Zaman Tours coordinated my itinerary in Jordan portion of the trip, specifically in Amman and Petra. These folks built a schedule specifically for me where I experienced the local scene in addition to all the major tourist attractions like Petra, Jaresh, the Citadel, Wadi Mujib and more. The guides and drivers were thoroughly knowledgeable, friendly and went out of their way to make this a memorable trip. I had a little trouble crossing the border from Israel to Jordan, but Zaman was there giving me the assistance I needed. Throughout my stay I was well taken care of and completely safe. After this experience, I feel I have new friends in Jordan. Read more
