My tourism experience is in all kind of tours such as adventure, hiking, historical, culture, religious & recreational tours.
I am a university graduate, and I have chosen to be a tour guide because I love outdoor work & meeting people. My life experience comes from traveling, meeting people, work experience, & the most important is reading all kind of books, especially the Arabic books.
I do enjoy sharing our culture with travellers. I am always trying to encourage travellers to live our culture; for example eat local food, talk with local people, share special occasions with local & having a night in a local house.
The most beautiful places for me in Jordan are Petra, Wadi Rum & the Dead Sea because they are unique places which you will not find anything similar to in the world.
I am proud to share Jordan's culture with visitors because Jordan is a beautiful country, and full of history. Jordanians are respectful people. Jordan is a holy land where most of the prophets have been, & this region in general is where human civilization started from.
I do love playing chess, so if you want to lose bring your chess with you!! I do like swimming, walking, reading, traveling and I do some martial arts.
The tourists call me the Legend!! Maybe because I do love my work and I know how to run the tour in a smooth and happy way.
I can customize any tour or itinerary you would like to do!!!
See you soon in Jordan!
A Recent Review of this guide
We have used about 20 Tour by Locals guides all of the world, and Jihad is right at the top of the list ! Communication was great, as Jihad helped us plan the best schedule to meet our needs. His knowledge of the history, culture, and religious sites were fantastic. He made a family of 5 feel very welcome to be in Jordan. It is vacation we will never forget, the boys still talk about the restaurant for welcome dinner our first night. (Hope your son enjoyed to toy car you got him in Aqaba !). All the best
