The family 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.

 

Petra by Night

We are proud founder and organizer.

We came up with an idea to make something special for tourists in Petra in 1998, at the same time when Zaman Tours was established. Since we started the business, we were very careful about providing an exquisite experience to clients and to leave them very impressed. It’s our real passion.

The Petra by Night a magical way to see part of the rock city by candlelight and explore the old city, which has become a world wonder incomparable experience starts by walking the entire Siq to the Treasury, lit with over 1,800 candles to bring the major attraction due to the spectacular view it has.

Petra by Night runs every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week starts at 20:30 from Petra Visitor Centre, and delivers you back by licensed guide to the Visitor Centre around 10.30 pm. Petra by Night.

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!

Zaman Tour agenzia super affidabile Siamo appena tornati da una settimana in Giordania. Ci siamo affidati a Zaman Tour per il servizio driver. Itinerario e hotel deciso e prenotati da noi. Non abbiamo avuto nessuna difficoltà nella comunicazione e nell'organizzazione. Sempre velocissimi nelle risposte prima della partenza. Il driver che ci ha seguito in tutto il viaggio è stato davvero molto preciso, professionale, parlava un ottimo inglese, bravissimo e cordiale con i bambini. Sembrava una persona di famiglia. Sempre disponibile per ogni esigenza o consiglio. La Giordania è un paese fantastico. Si visita tranquillamente, gente ospitale e cordiale. Davvero ha superato le nostre aspettative. Consiglio a tutti di andare in Giordania con Zaman Tours!

Esperienza indimenticabile Abbiamo fatto il tour di 5 giorni da Amman - Petra- Wadi Rum-Mar Morto. È stata un esperienza indimenticabile, la guida locale parlava benissimo italiano e ci ha fornito argomenti interessanti, molto gentile e disponibile. Essendo il nostro gruppo composto da 5 persone , la guida ha potuto organizzare le escursioni in maniera più pratica gestendo meglio il tempo che avevamo a disposizione, grazie a questo abbiamo potuto assistere al tramonto nel deserto e all’escursione in cammello all’alba ( non compresa nel tour). Sono felice di aver fatto questo viaggio, la Giordania è meravigliosa!

Bravissimi Ho trovato Zaman Tours guardando sul sito della Bit di Milano le Agenzie che avrebbero partecipato per la Giordania. andando sul loro sito, mi è piaciuto molto l'impostazione iniziale per l'organizzazione personale del viaggio, dunque li ho contattati e ho organizzato con loro il nostro viaggio, io e mio marito. La disponibilità, la pazienza, e la competenza di Maiss mi hanno aiutato nell'impostazione del tour, tutto tramite mail, visto che il mio inglese non è al top. ho richiesto torur con driver e guida parlante italiano. Questo è in breve il resoconto: assistenza completa all'arrivo in aereoporto, macchina super confortevole con il driver parlante arabo/ingliese e la guida parlante italiano. La macchina dotata di wifi, aria condizionata, e acqua fresca continua. Gli hotel che ci hanno proposto erano tutti ottimi, con tutti i confort. Nei ristoranti dove siamo stati durante il tour abbiamo mangiato bene, con ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo. Spendo due parole meritate sulla guida: Nabil, un signore giordano, laureatosi anni fa in Italia, con una passione per il lavoro tale, da farti vivere i luoghi, anche se antichi. Ci ha continuamente assistito, anche durante i giorni liberi. E alla fine è diventato un amico. Ho fatto questo tour: Amman - Jerash- Amman city tour- Desert Castle - Mar Morto con giorno libero - Bethany, Monte Nebo , Madaba - Petra - Petra by night - Wadi Rum, con notte al campo - Aqaba 6 giorni - riassumendo ho trovato Zaman tours, un'agenzia seria e professionale, che dunque consiglio per qualsiasi tipo di tour o visita.

Visit a fantastic country with fabulous Zaman tours Highly recommend booking your trip with Zamen tours. We booked a 7 day trip and from the moment we touch down in Jordan our expectations were exceeded. Customer service is really important to them. Jordan is a fabulous safe country that has something for ever one. From Its historic sites, adventure and leisure. Will most definitely be back to Jordan and booking Zaman tours again. This was our itinerary - Jerash Amman city tour - Madaba - Mt. Nebo - Shobak - Petra - Little Petra - Wadi Rum Camp, Wadi Rum Jeep Ride, Dead Sea.
