Jordan Travel Testimonials

Previous vacationers of Jordan describe the locals as “welcoming with open arms and warm hearts.” Tourists have been so captivated by all Jordan has to offer that they have taken the time to share their thoughts in various testimonials.

“My tour to Jordan was SENSATIONAL! I had a private guide and driver for the week. They took very good care of me as I needed special attention. ANOTHER SUNNYLAND VICTORY!” - Bob, August 2017

“Travel writing is my living, yet I find it an impossible task to properly sum up what a fantastic and memorable experience Jordan was for me. Any traveler who doesn’t have Jordan on their list doesn’t know how to properly formulate lists. Everything you've heard or thought about the Middle East as a whole is likely a misinformed stereotype that Jordan will happily correct. The hospitality is unmatched in this world and there are few places where one can hike as if they’re in a national park yet be among the ruins of an ancient civilization as you can in Petra. Words still escape me on how to properly describe this place, so I instead encourage everyone who can travel to Jordan and find their own words.” - Joe Baur, May 2016

“I initially went on the trip in order to see the holy sites in the eastern part of the Holy Land. The sites were incredible, and our guide’s information and inspiration at each stop and along the way were enriching and enlightening. Our JTB host was invaluable and a real pleasure to travel with. But, once there, what most moved my heart was the people of Jordan. Other countries invite tourists, but Jordan welcomes them with open arms and warm hearts - not because they’re tourists, but because they are human beings worthy of love. During my entire time in this incredible country, I felt at peace and peace-filled. I'll be relishing the blessings of my journey to Jordan for a long, long time.” - Margaret (Marge) Fenelon, May 2015
