Thank you so much Samer for this response. Indeed you made it all clair, in case I have any clients coming I will not hesitate to contact you.
I would suggest 10 days all together - highlights of Jordan are Jerash on the north and Petra with Wadi Rum on the south. In 10 days you have got enough time to visit both countries. It all depends of your flight possibilities as well, but I would not squeeze the program but would rather visit few places and enjoy the tour. Regards
thank you

Verry good itinerary and a much more detailed answer.
Thank you dear colleague
Good day from Jordan!
I see that the best to stay a moderate tour in the holy land of either side of Jordan river is 8 days altogether where 5 nights in eastern and 3 in the western of Jordan. You still have the opportunity to do extra extension! by this you guarantee the best value of time and effort .
Thanks Peter
