The History of Zaman!

Over 20 years of experience

We have been the explorers for generations

The world of Zaman dates right back to the year 1998. Zaman in Arabic means epoch or era. It seems like an obvious company name when you establish your family business in Petra’s close neighborhood. The astonishing capital city of the ancient Nabatean Kingdom and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Over thousands of years, Petra hasn’t lost its magnificence and charm. It is a powerful experience. Today it is even more exciting, as archeologists claim that there is still a lot to be discovered and uncovered. There is no better place for a travel company to forge its adventurous spirit. From here, Zaman was started.

Our attention to detail, experience, and creativity in planning is fostered by independence provided by our family ownership, which we consider to be one of our biggest strengths. The Owner of Zaman Tours Mr. Mohammad Harb descends from one of the renowned Jordanian families dedicated to tourism, and he founded Zaman Tours to share his love for Jordan with the world.

Since then, Zaman Tours has been committed to continually refine the quality of service provided to you to ensure that you get the most out of our guest’s vacation. Mr. Mohammad Harb is also the founder of the unique Petra by Night (candlelit Petra) experience, and Zaman Tours is one of the current organizers of this unique event.

Outstanding service ensured a superb holiday We tailored an existing itinerary to perfectly suit our needs and the trip was an outstanding success. from the second we stepped off our international flight, we were looked after by Zaman Tours who were outstanding. I work in tourism in the UK (promoting African destinations) and have experienced excellent services in the past, but nothing any better than that offered by Zaman. Organisation was by Maiss, our driver/guide was Murad and our tourist guide was Magdi. All were magnificent. They should be very proud of the work they did and the way they represented not only Zaman, but Jordan as a whole. We left the country having made real friends. We cannot recommend Jordan and Zaman Tours enough to others. Jordan felt 100% safe as well as very friendly and welcoming

So happy we booked this trip! This was our first time booking a private tour for so long (8 nights). I am really glad I found out about Zaman Tours, as they made this trip so smooth for us, so we would not have to worry about a single thing. One if the reasons why I chose them, was because they are a fully local company and have far more reasonable prices compared to the international tour companies working in the region. They have adapted the itinerary many times for us to fit our needs and responded quickly to all of our emails. A special thanks goes to our driver Morad. Not only did he show us his country, but we actually became friends during this trip :)

Day tour from Dead sea hotel to Wadi Mujib and Ma'in hot springs! We did the day tour to Wadi Mujib canyoning and Ma'in hot springs from Dead sea. Ali, our guide was very friendly and provided us with a lot of knowledge of local culture and traditions. He even gave us tips for restaurants to try a palestinian cuisine "Musakhan", and even offered to take us to his home to try the same. He ensured we got the best of Wadi Mujib and Ma'in hot springs and even found time for us to go souvenir shopping. Great service and friendly guide indeed!

We booked our trip to Jordan last minute and they organized all the itinerary for us and it was beyond perfect! This was the best experience we’ve ever had with a tour company. They booked everything and organized the whole itinerary for us. Visa, PCR test, entrance fees, hotel bookings, food, driver…I mean EVERYTHING! Our driver, his name is Issa, was the best driver. He took really good care of us, was prepared with water and juices and almost anything we needed. This was my second time in Jordan and was way better than my first experience. Definitely recommend!

The Best Tour of My Life!!!!! I did a private tour with Zaman for all the highlights of Jordan, and I don't have enough words to thank them for such an amazing and memorable trip. The tour was so well organized and they made me feel I was traveling with a friend. The driver was so professional and friendly and during the entire trip I felt so safe. I feel so fortunate to experience Jordan with Zaman Tours, and If I am visiting Jordan again, I would definitely reach out to them again :-)

The Best of Jordan with Zaman Tours We had little time to plan for our February 2020 Jordan trip, 2 weeks to be exact. We contacted Zaman Tours as they are accredited by the Jordan Tourism Board. Ms Eman quickly responded to my email and offered an 8-day private package that suited our budget. Ms Eman was patient in answering my queries and requests. She arranged our itinerary and our package included airport transfers, a good choice of 3 and 4-star accommodations, sightseeing and admission tickets, a modern Hyundai Sonata for our transportation, bottled water & wifi onboard and half board meals i the hotels. Local guide services in Jerash and Petra as well as Petra by Night tour were optional and can be bought either in advance or on-site. Airport pick up was a breeze. Zaman Tours representative, Mr Freddy, welcome and helped us through immigration and baggage claim. Our English speaking driver for our entire stay was Mr Shareef, an excellent and courteous driver. He was on time all the time. He did all the check-ins for us. During drives, he gave short insights about the place we would be visiting. He also gave recommendations on other activities you could do for extra cost like Turkish bath after a tiring walk in Petra, an additional jeep tour in Wadi Rum and a private cruise in Aqaba. Along the way, he would stop where we could eat lunch, drink coffee, use toilet or buy souvenirs. We appreciated his flexibility with time. We were able to adjust pick up times enabling us to stay a bit longer at our selected sites. We traveled to almost all the significant and picturesque places in the whole of Jordan. We went to Ajloun, Jerash, Amman Citadel, Mount Nebo, Madaba, Petra, Little Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba, Bethany and Dead Sea. We stayed 2 nights in Amman, 2 nights in Petra and a night each in Wadi Rum, Aqaba and Dead Sea. I had to say all the accommodations booked by Zaman Tours were centrally located and clean. We were also happy that we never had to worry where to have dinner every night as all dinners were included in the price that we paid. My recommendation to those who would like to see both the Treasury and the Monastery is to book 2 nights in Petra. My suggestion when buying souvenir items and Dead Sea products is to purchase them in Aqaba where the prices are a lot cheaper. And for the other activities, hotels offer more choices at friendly prices. Thank you to Zaman Tours... Ms Eman, Mr Freddy and Mr Shareef for a wonderful first trip to Jordan. Hope to be back someday... Shokran! See the best of Jordan with Zaman Tours!
