Jordan is unique in that it has so many amazing sights within a relatively short distance from each other. Amman, Madaba, Petra, Wadi Rum, Dead Sea, Jerash and more…all within a few hours of driving or less.
On my latest trip to Jordan, I managed to visit a handful of these locations within the short period of time that I had. And because of the short distances, I didn’t feel rushed and I was able to enjoy each destination thoroughly.
What also helped was that I used the reliable transportation service offered by localtrips.net, which I happened to find randomly during a google search, to help me get around.
For two people, the price of private transportation in Jordan is well worth it. While the bus will be cheaper, the car allowed us to stop whenever and wherever we wanted during our journeys. And that’s worth a few extra bucks for sure.
We were picked up at the airport by Ahmed and he took good care of us from that point on. The car was clean and spacious, he was very friendly and helpful and he pretty much took us everywhere we wanted to visit en route to Petra. He didn’t care how long we stayed at each sight or how long the day was going to be and it didn’t affect the price either.
Localtrips.net offers transfer services all over Jordan (under the official company name of Windows of Jordan). They also offer more complete tours of the country and they can book accommodation and arrange anything else you might need too. Just send them an email with details about what you’re interested in doing and they’ll get back to you quickly with some great options.
The prices, again, while more expensive than taking local transportation in Jordan of course, are still very reasonable, especially if you’re traveling with 2 or more people. It also makes for a more relaxing experience and you get to interact right away with an interesting local Jordanian who is ready to talk about any aspect of their home country.
I am very happy that I found this company as it really made a difference with my trip, ensuring that our short visit to Jordan was as rewarding as possible!
