Traveling with Jihad was a real pleasure. We toured Amman for a full day and he was very informative on everything Jordan plus numerous other subjects. I truly enjoyed his company. I feel that I have a friend in Jordan. My wife will join me on my next trip to the Middle East and I will be contacting Jihad for her first visit to Jordan. I have already decided to stay a few more days so we can explore more of this beautiful country. My only wish is that I could give Jihad more than 5 Stars!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Alan! I did enjoy your company too. I learnt many things from you. I look forward to meet you and family again in Jordan. Best Regards

My family genuinely enjoyed our time in Amman and Dead Sea. This is not possible with the wealth of knowledge from Jihad. He is very humble and knows the culture enough very well. I will definitely recommend my friends and family to him when they visit him. He knew the history where you have an authentic place to go to the local place that was legit. Thank you Jihad for making this special for my Family!

Jihad took our group of six people on a fantastic two day tour of Wadi Rum and Petra. He is very fun and engaging with a wealth of knowledge about present-day Jordan and it's long and fascinating history. Jihad helped us develop the tour that interested our diverse group (we wanted a mix of history and nature). He even went the extra mile to help one of our group obtain a Jordanian visa prior to arrival. I would recommend Jihad to anyone visiting Jordan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are very welcome. Thanks for visiting Jordan. I wish for you & Family all the best.

Great experience! I would highly recommend taking a tour with Jihad. Great personality, English, and knowledge of Jordan and the city of Amman. Jihad was punctual, flexible, and accommodating. He picked me up from the airport and took me to a variety of sites throughout Amman. The experience could not have been more stress-free and enjoyable! I would 100% select Jihad as a guide the next time I am in Jordan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Michael. I did enjoy showing you my country & culture. We are looking forward to see you again in Jordan.

My wife and I spent a lovely week's holiday in Jordan. Locals were so friendly and welcoming. We wish to thank Toursbylocals for making our trip so smooth and enjoyable. A very special thank you to our guide. He was so welcoming, attended to all our needs. He went out of his way to make our trip all the more enjoyable. He was not just a guide but also a great teacher. He patiently answered all our questions and is also very knowledgeable in every subject, from local culture to history. Thank you Jihad

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joseph & Maria You are very welcome. I did enjoy the tour with you, and I did learn many things from you too. I was thinking to visit Malta, but after the tour I have to visit it. Allah yebarek feekom Jihad A.

Jihad was our private tour guide in Jordan for three days in Oct. 2019. Jihad always has a broad smile on his face, kind, punctual, accommodating and tries his very best to cover the important sites. He is very knowledgeable and suggested Aqaba and incorporated it in our tour. He would not leave before making sure our overnight reservations were in place. My husband, our son and I had a wonderful vacation in Jordan, thanks to Jihad. The Kayyali Family

We really enjoyed having Jihad as our guide for our family trip through Jordan. Jihad made it very memorable for us, Jordan is a very beautiful country. We were pleased he was able to tell us about his family circumstances and that he needed to return home. He made sure we were looked after very well, even phoning the next day at lunchtime checking on us at the restaurant. We highly recommend him as a 5/5 guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Ian You have a beautiful family made a perfect tour. Best wishes Jihad A.

We loved Jihad! He answered my emails within hours. He is extremely patient and flexible. As older travelers he was very willing to make changes to accommodate our physical limitations. His explanations about the history and culture were very interesting because he included stories about his own family and parents, making it more personal. He encouraged us to call him during our free time if we needed him or had questions. As frequent travelers we have had many tour guides. Jihad is definitely the best!

Jihad is an exceptional guide! From the minute I met him until I said farewell his infectious grin and happy personality added to the enjoyment of my two days with him. His knowledge of his homeland is profound and I gained so much from being in his company. He is a safe and good driver and went out of his way to accommodate all my whims and fancies and at the same time gave valid suggestions of slight changes to my original itinerary. My time in Jordan was glorious and I give Jihad a LOT of credit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jill I did enjoy the tour with you too. Thank you �� Xx

Our tour was on Tuesday and museums were closed, he never mentioned this. We had a tour with him on Monday so we could have switched days. The tour time was cut in half but the payment was for a whole day. He just guided us for the Citadel and the Mosque.

My wife and myself spent four days with Jihad in Petra and other parts of Jordan. For us, Jihad was the perfect guide, one who not only knows the history and facts about the places and sites he was showing us, but also intelligent and knowledgeable on a wide range of topics, able to offer a broad perspective on his country's current affairs and social structure. He was also be an enjoyable companion, good fun to be with for four days. We can't recommend him highly enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Nancy & William you are very welcome. Looking forward to meeting you again in Jordan!

Jihad was FANTASTIC! Before we arrived he helped us select the perfect itinerary. When we actually arrived it was raining in Jordan. Jihad shifted our itinerary around to avoid poor weather. We traveled with our 4 kids. Jihad was SO GOOD with our children. He is very knowledgable and a great communicator. But most of all he is just an excellent human being. When he learned of my Mom's upcoming birthday he arranged a surprise party and a cake at a local restaurant. I simply cannot recommend Jihad enough!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your compliment. You have beautiful family. You are very welcome. Thanks for visiting us!

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

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeff Thanks for your good feedback! Thank you for bringing your family to this area of the world, I think they have seen many things deferent from anywhere else in the world. I happy that you enjoyed Jordan. Consider me as a friend of you in Jordan. Best wishes for you and family. Regards Jihad A.

Jihad's expertise of the Petra site as well as the history of the country made this visit a trip of a lifetime, as hoped. Meeting us at our Amman hotel, driving to & from Petra, courtesy stops along the way, a quick visit to a local place for good food and pricing, made for a complete day. His English language is excellent and his knowledge and presentations of Petra were superb. If you want a guided visit to Petra, a friendly and highly knowledgeable person , Jihad is the one!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot David! I did enjoy sharing Jordan with you and Liesle I wish for you all the best!

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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was pleasure to share Jordan with you and David. I love to see few photos from David collection.. I wish for you all the best Best Regards Jihad A.
