Why Jordan is teamed with Desert Eco Tours. Why Jordan made our two day trip to Petra seamless. They were always on time and allowed us to drop our luggage off in the office so we could hike Petra without the extra weight. The guides and drivers they employ spoke great English, were prompt and courteous and overall made our trip special.

For two women headed to tour Jordan without any expectations, I can honestly say the Why Jordan team is beyond wonderful. Kind and engaging, each driver and guide offered their personal perspective and genuine hospitality. They took us from the airport in Amman to Petra, from Petra to the Wadi Rum, then to the Dead Sea and back to Amman. The entire journey, over 4 days, was organized and flawless. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a professional and amazing experience. Might have left my jacket in your car. Cheers to the whole team!!!

We had an amazing tour with Desert Eco Tours and Why Jordan Tours. Their partnership enabled us to see so many wonderful things in both Israel and Jordan. In Israel we hiked in Ein Gedi, toured Masada, and swam in the Dead Sea. Our guide assisted us in crossing the border to Jordan where we were immediately met by a Why Jordan staff member and driven to our hotel. We were picked up the next morning and our guide, Mohammed, spent an amazing day with us in Petra. Wow! We stayed in Petra that night and then went on a Jeep tour of Wadi Rum desert. Another amazing day and another spectacular guide! Ali was our driver, our guide and our chef. And also a historian, and educator and quite a mountain climber! WHy Jordan took us to the border at the end of the day, helped us cross, and again we were met by Desert Eco Tours on the Israel side. Every hotel, tour, and meal arranged by these people were terrific! Guides were all top notch and incredibly knowledgeable in a wide range of topics - history, geology, languages, culture, humor, ... I highly recommend traveling here and booking with these companies.

Mohammad Hilelat was the most wonderful guide! He's very passionate about showing off his beautiful country, and he's one of the nicest people I've ever met. He took time to explain the history and cultural significance of places we went, and he did everything with a beaming smile. He made our trip amazing (and cooked us an incredible meal too!). I would highly recommend Why Jordan. Thanks again, Mohammad!
