Know More about this tour

Located 140 miles (225 kilometers) from Amman, Petra once dominated the trade routes of ancient Arabia. Your visit to this hauntingly beautiful place begins with a walk through the Siq, a narrow path that was once the main entrance to the city. An impressively long, deep and narrow gorge of stunning natural beauty, the Siq is hemmed in by cliffs soaring up to 263 feet (80 meters), and measures three-quarters of a mile (1.2 kilometers).

You will depart from your Hotel to Petra via an air conditioned vehicle and will have the opportunity to stop and take a break as the journey is close to 2.5 hours south. Once you are in Petra, at the Petra Visitor Center, a guide can be arranged ( Optional ) after your ticket purchase and your meeting point to start your tour into Petra. Your dedicated English speaking tour guide will lead the tour inside of Petra and arrange entrance and logistics. It is advised to stay close to your guide to capture the details of the fascinating history of the Nabateans who built the city out of rocks. You will have the opportunity to rest, eat, drink, and use the facilities while in Petra, just inform your guide.

At the end of the tour, your guide  ( If Hired ) will escort you to the meeting point for your journey back to Amman. Expect about a 3 hour journey back to Amman.

    The whole city of Petra was just amazing! Truly spectacular. Prior to this trip my top two visited sites were the pyramids and the Great Wall of China. Now Petra is at the top of the list.

    Petra was worth visiting despite the long trip from Amman (~3 hours by car). The driver, Sam, was great, came on time, picked us up on time and gave some history insight of the place. He also gave us few tips which were quite important regarding the scammers you may encounter once you arrive. For all the visitors asking if they could wear shorts, the short answer is yes. I have seen many people wearing it without any issues. You can take a guide from the Visitors Centre but it’s not a must.

    Younes was a great driver. We enjoyed a lot and 100% recommend him. He knows very well about Jordan, Pertra and tried to answer all questions.

    This is magical place. You should consider spending more than one day exploring. It’s history carved into stone.

    Full-Day trip from Amman to Petra. The driver Abeit was friendly and knowledgeable and offered to bring us to Wadi Rum after visiting Petra. Petra itself was a beautiful place and one day tour there is enough - you’re able to explore everything during a day. However it does include a lot of walking and even in October it is hot to walk around under the sun! Make sure you have enough water with you and prepare to spend the day walking around (proper shoes!). Couple things to be aware / keep in mind: If you want to have a guide make sure you’ll get a proper one from Petra Visitor Center (the same place you’ll get your tickets)!! There’s a lot of local “guides” outside the site trying to defraud tourists and this is something that we encountered as well. We got scammed big time by one of these local “guides” and ended up paying way too much than official guide would’ve cost. On top of that, this “guide” was not able to tell us any single thing about Petra. Firstly because he simply didn’t know anything and secondly because he wasn’t able even to communicate in English. This incident really made us mad and almost ruined the whole trip. Really nasty experience but totally avoidable!

    The whole day was amazing! Sam, the driver, spoke great English. I was traveling solo and he offered to take my picture as much as I wanted. He was very easy to talk to and super nice. The car was great, especially the Wi-Fi. The stops along the way were perfect. We stopped for coffee and for some nice views, and later for lunch. I loved every bit of the day and if I could give this company more than five stars I would!

    My driver Hasan was great! His English was very good and he was kind enough to point out specific things along the way to explain what they were for me.

    Yunus was my driver and he was amazing. Day 1 I did Petra by day and also Petra by night. I arrived in Petra around 1 pm and that gave me the perfect amount of time to see the treasury and also hike up to the monastery. It was crowded mid day but as I made it to the monastery around 4pm there was only a handful of people there. The hike back down was relaxing and calm as there was hardly anyone on the trail. As I arrived back at the treasury most of the people there earlier had cleared out and I could fully enjoy the location. I exited around 630pm and had dinner at the Cave. Their food was amazing. Plus it was right next to the entrance making it very easy to get back in for Petra by night. Day 2 was the baptism site, madaba and mt nebo. Yunus was a pleasure to spend the day with and went out of his way to take care of me.

    Walking through Petra is awesome. I would do that again with friends. Unfortunately our driver didn't know English and wasn't much help in information or in deciding on places to stop or look at along the road to and from Petra.
