Hello,
Once we got to Israel we enjoyed our trip even though it turned out to be only for a few hours. the travel company did not inform us of the lenthly process at the border. their driver just dropped us off outside the gate and left. It was like we had to fetch for ourselves in a new country where we did not speak the local language. the entire border crossing process took almost 3 hours due to which we reached israel only around 11:30am and had to be back at the border around 5pm. Which someone had guided us better. this is the process we went through - once we were dropped outside the gate we went inside a room there from no where a man approached us and said he would help us and asked for our passports - reluctantly we gave it to him and then he disappeared. 30 mins later he found him again and then he said we had to sit in a bus and we would given our passport on the bus. Asked us for tips for helping us out. we gave him $10 but he wasnt satisfied and hence had to pay more. We went and sat on the bus and 30 mins later a guy comes in with a huge set of passports and calls out the names from the passport to see if they were on that bus. this process took another 30-50mins. after that the bus driver came and told him to pay for the bus ticket. Even here we ended up paying more due to their accent. He asked us if we wanted a "back" ticket but he actually meant "bags" and ended up spending $22 extra for bags that we didnt have. this entire process was such a waste of time and not even one person guided us or advised us about this. Felt the tour operator could have informed about the same. We spent additional $100 per person at the border crossing.

This was a disaster. We didn't make it over the boarder crossing King Hussein Bridge/ Allenby Bridge as they didn't accept the Jordanian visa we obtained through the walking tour group we were doing other stuff with later in our stay in Jordan. The visa we obtained was a Collective Visa which is a valid visa but only allows you to cross the border from the southern or northern border crossings - not valid for the King Hussein Bridge/ Allenby Bridge. Crazy! We didn't know about the different visas you don't know what you don't know and therefore thought we were fine we answered yes to the questions we were asked by the Jordanian travel agency - not once did they ask if we had a Collective visa that was arranged by the walking tour group we hiked with in Jordan we thought it was paid for as part of our tour price. The agency just asked if we had a paid visa which we thought we had with the Collective visa until we fronted the boarder crossing people and were turned away. The same issue happened with another person we met. You MUST have a paid-up Visa - i.e. pay 40JOD at the airport or where you crossed into Jordan.
In the end we lots our money full price! and a lot of time. We were very distressed by the whole experience.
