Trip Report Syria, Jordan, Lebanon

Jump to last reply

We recently returned from a great trip to Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. We chose to hire a driver in order to maximize our time and to customize our visits. It was so much better than traveling with a tour - I believe we saw at least twice what we could have done by coach and going at your own pace is wonderful.

Our driver was Abdul Ibrahim of Enjoying Driving Tourists Happy. He speaks perfect English, has a great 4 wheel drive vehicle, is an excellent safe driver and great company. He took care of us far in excess of what we expected from a driver. For instance, he made sure our hotels were satisfactory every night and either joined us for dinners or took us to recommended restaurants and made sure we were comfortable. He made many xcellent suggestions along the way of places to visit (not in the guide books), to shop and to eat. He helped us bargain in the Souks and took us to visit vendors of items we were interested in and even helped us haul our purchases around. He had so many insider tips that I couldn't list them all here; suffice to say that he is a jewel.

You can reach him at abd@intertrama.com or http://syriaroad.blogspot.com or feel free to ask me any further questions about him or our travels in the region.
