Jihad A.

Amman, Jordan

I am Jihad, and I am an English language licensed tour guide in Jordan.

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 had an incredible week with Jihad, who could not have been more accommodating. Before we even booked our tour, he guided us on where to stay, what to pack, and even went so far as to send unsolicited weather forecasts in the days leading up to our trip! Upon arriving in Jordan, he insisted on meeting us one day early (at no cost) so we could review and modify our itinerary based on weather, etc. He is a gem and needless to say, so are the magical sights of Petra, Wadi Rum, etc. Book immediately!
