Aqaba

The town offers a sociable stopover en route to the diving and snorkeling clubs to the south and the big destinations of Wadi Rum and Petra.

Aqaba carries the relaxed, small-town atmosphere of a popular local getaway. The town offers a sociable stopover en route to the diving and snorkeling clubs to the south and Wadi Rum and Petra's big destinations. It’s also an obvious place to break a journey to or from Israel and the Palestinian Territories or Egypt.

Aqaba's greatest asset is the Red Sea itself. The temperate climate and gentle water currents have created a perfect environment for corals' growth and a teeming plethora of marine life. Here you can swim with friendly sea turtles and dolphins as they dart among the schools of multi-colored fish. Night dives reveal the nocturnal sea creatures, crabs, lobsters, and shrimp, as they search for a midnight snack.

There are several dive centers in Aqaba. All offer well-maintained diving equipment, professional instructors, and transport by boat to various dive sites.

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!

Hashem och hans team tog hand om oss på förträffligt sätt och allt var välordnat och bra, fina hästar, god mat, gott om vatten och en upplevelse som man bär med sig hela livet!!

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.
