Mahmoud rates as one of the top guides we have had and we are frequent Tours by Locals users. He is very professional, punctual, proficient in English and very knowledgeable about the history of his country and many other subjects. We had some fun and informative conversations whilst on the road. We requested a tailored tour to accommodate our interests and because we had previously been on tour in Jordan. We would highly recommend Mahmoud to anyone interested in visiting Jordan. Thanks, Mahmoud.
Excellent tour of Jordan with Mahmoud. He and his driver, Shakir, were always on time and great communicators. Mahmoud's passion for his country, culture and history were evident. He was always willing to answer any questions and showed great flexibility. He was very thoughtful and respectful in his dealings with us and others. We would highly recommend Mahmoud and Shakir if you are considering a tour of Jordan.
We had a great 4 day tour. All was planned well and Mahmoud and Abeed our driver gave their utmost to make our 4 days as great as they were. They helped us to make great memories of Jordan
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Having you was a great pleasure. Hope to see you again in Jordan.

We spent 5 fantastic days with Mahmoud in Jordan,from Wadi Rum to Petra, the Dead Sea and Amman. Mahmoud's knowledge and love for his country are evident and contagious. He is very kind and patient,mindful of every detail. We had an excellent experience with him and became friends along the way. He went above and beyond to make sure the younger members of our family enjoyed themselves in the evenings. His driver ( Issa ) was also a superstar! We loved Mahmoud and his country . Will be back to see both !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mayra, Thank you for such nice words. I hope this friendship will never come to an end, and I hope that Kevin and Lauren will carry good memories from the evenings.
We were a group of 15 aged 35-40 and Mahmoud is the best guide we could ever ask for! Flexible, extremely knowledgeable and passionate of his country, it has been like having a local friend with us! P.S. His English is excellent!

When we started our search for a guide for our upcoming trip to Amman, we started communicating with Mahmoud. Immediately we became aware of his immense knowledge of the areas we were planning of visiting and his ability to work with us and our schedules.We were a group of 6 adults and from the onset of our tour we found that our intuition of Mahmoud was correct. This man is a walking encyclopedia. His love and knowledge of his country, history and religion goes unmatched.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Yasmeen for the great words, you were a great company, all of you, full of respect, passion, and understanding. I really hope to meet you again some day.

Mahmoud not only was very knowledgeable and interesting but went out of his way to make our experience in Jordan (Amman and Petra) unforgettable and also safe. He arranged for extra transportation after the tour and even helped us with tracking a package we lost. We highly recommended him. We will be back!
Our tour was excellent and we can highly recommend Mahmoud as he is very knowledgeable, professional, and overall simply a great person and considerate traveling companion. Not only did we learn the detailed history of sights visited, but he provided considerable insight into the modern day events affecting Jordan and its surrounding countries. His personal experiences growing up in a Bedouin family (and now raising a family of his own) in the Petra area were particularly interesting. SUPERB!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the great words, I hope that I added something good to your visit to Jordan, and I hope to visit us again.

Mahmoud is a superb guide. Driver Fawaz was utterly charming and very safe. Weather conditions caused some mid-course changes; Mahmoud made good suggestions for those changes. He was sensitive to my need to go up and down the 800 steps at Petra's Monastery slowly--and literally supportive on the way down; he lent me his arm on the somewhat slippery rocks. We had a good time and I feel like we parted as good friends. An enthusiastic, personable guide with fast, fluent English--good company for 5 days.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Having you was a great honour, I hope this visit will not be the last!. I learnt a lot from you and from your life experience. Thank you.

Mahmoud was an exceptional guide. We spent TEN days together, and despite many happenings beyond our control such as delayed flights, traffic, rain, and a sick child, we had the most amazing visit. We always felt safe, and the kindness displayed by Mahmoud and the people of Jordan exceeded our expectations. if this tour appeals to you, don't hesitate. The experience will create incredible memories. One day in Petra is not enough to give you a true feeling of this little gem of a country called Jordan.
DiAnn PlunkettUnited States
Mahmoud is over the top fun, knowledgeable and one of the very best guides we have ever had! Our time in Petra and Wadi Rum was amazing. There were four of us on our tour and we all feel we have a special new friend in "M". If you are going to Jordan, I would definitely suggest you book Mahmoud. Thank you for a very special time, M. Paul, DiAnn, DeDe and Larry
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you DiAnn for your nice words, having you was an honor. I hope that I added something good to your visit to Jordan, hopefully its not the last visit.

We had a very short trip and tried to pack a lot in. Our guide was really good and showed us the sights of Jordan, knowledgeable and engaging. Mahmoud was flexible to our changing plans and even made the rare event of rain in Petra enjoyable. Next time I would seek more advice on hotels (we booked them ourselves). Great trip enjoyed by everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marie. Having you all was a pleasure, Hoping that Jordan crosses your mind when you think of traveling.
