Important Notes & Information:

 

Passport Information

 You are required to provide your full passport details to us when you book this shore excursion.

In order to be authorized to pick guests up from the Port Area we are required to submit a visa manifest to the Border/Port Authority. The visa manifest requires the full passport details for all guests. This manifest is stamped and authorized which allows our guides and drivers with their vehicles to gain entry to the Port Area to pick up the guests from the front of the ship.

If you do not provide us with the full passport details of all guests, you will be required to catch the public shuttle bus from the Port area to the town centre. This can take from 1 – 2 hours and can cause significant delays for your tour.

This is why we ask for your full passport details when you submit your booking form for a Shore Excursion Tour with us.

Please note that Shore Excursions need to be booked a minimum of 24 hours in advance so that we are able to get an authorized and stamped copy of the Visa Manifest form the Border/Port Authority.

 

4x4 Vehicles in Wadi Rum

The4x4 vehicles in Wadi Rum used for the jeep tour are owned by the local Bedouin associations and are generally old and in a poor state. Given that we don't have any other choice when it comes to transportation in Wadi Rum, we can only advise our clients about their state. Jeep tours in Wadi Rum are to support the local community of Wadi Rum Protected Area and Natural Reserve.

 

The Guides in Petra

The Local guides are assigned at the visitor's centre of the site and they dont belong to us (They are not JHT guides), they are employees of the Jordanian Ministry of Tourism and travel agencies cannot guarantee the quality of their services.We are going to arrange a spot guide for you.

 

Tipping in Jordan

Tipping is a practiced social custom in Jordan. Tipping by definition is voluntary – at the discretion of the customer. In tours services, tour guides and drivers are playing the most of the role , offering knowledge about Jordan history, traditions, artifacts, sites, food and others.

A gratuity (also called a tip) is a sum of money customarily given by a client or customer to certain service sector for the service they have performed, in addition to the basic price of the service. It may or may not be customary to tip in other sectors, but this depends on the country or location.

Tips and their amount are a matter of social custom and etiquette, and the custom varies between countries and between settings. In some locations tipping is discouraged and considered insulting, while in some other locations tipping is expected from customers. The customary amount of a tip can be a specific range of monetary amounts or a certain percentage of the bill based on the perceived quality of the service given.

*Reasons for tipping :

-Showing off

-To supplement the server's income and make them happy

-For improved future service

-To avoid disapproval from the server

-A sense of duty
