We are very disappointed with our tour to Petra. We spent a lot of money and we only had 2.5 hours in Petra. It was advertised that we would have 4-6 hours. The guided tour was only 1.5 hours, not 2.5 hours as advertised. The group size was 50 people, not 25 as advertised. This size made it very difficult to hear the guide and ask questions. We also had to wait 1.5 hours at the border with no explanation. Ramzi was not there when arrived on the Jordan side. and 1 of the buses was late. Going to Petra has been a dream for years and we are sad we had to rush through it. On a positive note, our guide Kareem was excellent and did his best to manage such a large group.
If possible, don’t miss an opportunity to visit Petra. While the one day trip does not provide enough time to see everything, our guide was exceptional in explaining multiple details of the city and it’s history. Be warned that it is a long day and requires much walking.
Travelling by bus across Jordan provided an opportunity to view Jordan's mountains which formed an impressive and dramatic backdrop. Depending on where in Jordan you are, the mountains vary in (rock) composition and appearance. One of the rest stops provided an opportunity to buy local Jordanian craft products (daggers, bowls, embroidered pashminas, and sand art, to name just a few) which all were beautiful and required high levels of skill to make, although some were also quite expensive. Petra itself was amazing, allowing a closer examination of sandstone rock formations, and impressing everyone with the skill and patience of the ancient Nabateans in turning this site into an amazing expression of their civilization. An eye-opening and thoroughly recommended experience.
They handled difficult logistics well and made a very challenging trip smooth and interesting. Our guide was knowledgeable and caring. The experience exceeded expectations.
Very good organized, Thank you very much. I was traveling with my son and we didn't have the time for planning in advance. Therefore it was very easy for us, since everything (visa and border crossing) was organized. Of course one day is not enough for Petra. As Petra is a very special place, I would do this trip again.
The tour was great. Everything was streamlined and easy to follow. The tour guide in Petra was knowledgeable and informative. The tour came with entrance into Petra and a free lunch. The weather was perfect on the day we went so it worked out very well. The only downside is the price. It is quite expensive for the tour. I guess you have to take into account that they provide you with a free water bottle, the 2 hour bus ride there and back, as well as entrance to Petra and the free lunch. Additionally, you have to pay to cross the border from Israel and back so that was an additional $120 per person. So you really are looking at $600+ for this. Another thing is that the Jordanian dollar is different so watch out- you will be paying a lot of money for food and souvenirs. Overall, a lot of fun- especially for a once in a lifetime experience.
The guide Nizahar was excellent. We enjoyed this trip a lot. Very well organized and planned. Thank you
⭐⭐⭐ The trip was certainly not cheap (especially when visa fees are counted) and the twelve hour trip spends only three to four hours in Petra. Those three to four hours were spectacular though: our very helpful and knowledgeable Jordanian tour guide Fadi showed us things we would never have realised about the sight, and Petra was unsurprisingly magnificent. The real highlight, however, was not the buildings carved into the mountain but the vast and awe inspiring valley we walked through on the way down. The rest of the trip was a bit of a let down, although it was interesting to see “normal” Jordan. The drive (disregarding hour-long border crossings) is long both ways, but is lengthened by stopping off at shops for 45 minutes to be bombarded by unpleasantly aggressive sales. On the journey, at one point our guide (who was otherwise very knowledgeable and charming) was reading off a no-doubt compulsory and mildly propagandistic fact-sheet about the country. We were given lunch bags to take with us into Petra itself filled with a juice cartons, an Arab date filled bagel, etc. Overall, we had an enjoyable time, and it’s an experience we’ll long remember.
Petra is everything your hear about it. Incredible place and highly recommend going with a guide to explain the area. The bus ride felt shorter than I expected due to the surroundings and one added feature they don’t tell you about. (I won’t spoil it!). The border crossing is a unique experience as I have never walked across the border and done immigration. Our guide, Kareem, felt like an old friend. I would go when the weather is good. It was a hot day in the sun in the parts that were not shaded. We are so glad we did this tour!
Tourist Israel canceled the reservation within 48 stating it was due to COVID concerns but they were still running the two day excursions. Tourist Israel refuses to credit my VISA card and instead requested I provide in an unsecured email my bank account information. Sharing bank information encourages fraud. If you want to go to Petra or other excursions or travel within Israel, avoid this company which is unrealiable and states they will provide refunds only to then refuse to credit your card. Tourist Israel made was a real spoiler alert
