I visited Jordan with my family in October 2016. We were in Jordan for only 4 days and wanted to visit Amman, Dead Sea, River Jordan, Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba and Main Springs…most travel agents said that this is not possible in 4 days due to time and distance. However, after an exchange of many emails, Mr. Sabbah made this possible.
Though we had a short time, we did not feel rushed. He is very careful driver, who makes good time in order for you to cover every location you have asked for and more.
When we camped at Wadi Rum, he took into consideration that we have a child and provided us a tent with an attached bathroom and toilet.
He started the tour service as a passion and will go an extra mile to make sure you are happy with the trip, as his happiness is in seeing that you are happy. .
He knows the best places to eat great Jordanian food, which is very yummy. He is great with kids and makes sure they are happy (even if it means specially stopping to find a pine cone on the way) and enjoy the trip as well. His prices are also reasonable as compared and we definitely recommend his services for a great and comfortable trip.

Sabbah is a sole operator and he really knows his stuff. With over 16 years experience and more than 500 tours he has taken personally, he's the guy you want taking your trip!

We were recommended Sabbah by a friend and after a brilliant 4 days in Jordan, it's my turn to pass that recommendation onto the TripAdvisor readers. So let me share with you what I think is best about Sabbah:

1.) He speaks good English & some Italian
2.) He is completely flexible around what you want to do
3.) He is happy to wait for you any time, anywhere
4.) He speaks to locals and negotiates for you
5.) He really cares you have an excellent time
6.) He knows the #1 spots to go for everything
7.) He is friends with everyone, so you can do ANYTHING!

Whenever we left our hotel, Sabbah would be there waiting. If we needed something like when our bag broke, he knew or found someone to do it cheap. In the instance of the hiking bag, the handle had broken off and Sabbah had his friend do it for AUD$1.00 as well as fixing the other strap to ensure it didn't go also.

At one stage I asked for a Turkish bath & haircut, so Sabbah located the best places to do both. The stores barely spoke English, but Sabbah managed it all and was there 100% of the time.

When you are on his tours, it's like your best friend. You simply don't need to think or worry about a thing. Sabbah has a mentality that when he stops working, he will be stuck at home and get bored, so he pours himself into the job, super proud of his country and wanting to share that with you and make you have a great time.

So my friends, don't go past him, he's an excellent guide.

With a limited time and some concern for the political situation we were extremely doubtful of the realisation of a long time dream: Petra and Jerash.
We have been very lucky to contact Mr. Sabbah who immediately understood our necessity and desires, reassured us, ward off our fears and organised for us a perfectly tailored trip that concentrated in few days all the best of Jordan.
With him we saw all the important places: Jerash, Petra , Mount Nebo and Dead sea and also the spectacular sunset in a crusader’s castle and in a secluded bedouin camp in the middle of the Wadi Rum desert.
But he also introduced us to his friends and to the incredible dimension of one of the most lovely population of the Middle East.

Sabbah was the greatest guide we could have in Jordan. We only had 3 full days to see as much as possible. We wanted to see the Dead Sea, Jerash, Petra, Wadi Rum, Mount Nebo, and Madaba. And Sabbah was able to create an itinerary which allowed us to do so.

For American Tourists and other English speaking groups, Sabbah is highly recommended. He speaks excellent English, is very friendly, and will make you feel very safe in a foreign land.

Sabbah also took us to excellent restaurants which allowed us to try the Jordanian cuisine.

If you're interested in an experience of a lifetime in Jordan, I highly recommend Sabbah Tours.
