    We used Abraham Tours twice in Jerusalem, one to Masada/Dead Sea and overnight to Petra. Our Petra guide Nader was one of the best guides we have ever had. Both tours left from the Abraham Hostel where we stayed and left luggage for the overnight Petra tour. Nicely run tours.

    My review regarding this tour is mixed. I'll start off by saying how profoundly disappointed I was with the lack of organization on behalf of Abraham tours. We decided to arrive at Abraham Hostel Tel Aviv at 5:45 am after receiving multiple emails requesting us to arrive

    Dear "anthonyb736" Sorry to hear of the logistic issues that you experienced on the tour. Some of our drivers are indeed non English speaking locals and delays at the border may have been due to several factors. We now have a staff member explaining the border procedure on the morning of every Petra Tour. I can completely understand any disappointment you may have felt however and on behalf of our team I'm sorry for any confusion you may have faced at the border. I'm very glad to hear that you had a great guide and driver with you and that you found Petra to be amazing. If you'd like to write to me directly, I would be happy to look further into what happened on the day of your tour and consult management about it. You can contact me directly at guestrelations@abrahamtours.com Warm Regards, Tay
