  • i was been cheated by you'll i wanted to talk the tour on the 10th but was told i can't .i paid for the tour and its not that i was not available that day its not cleary explained to me that i must be in isreal in eilat to be taking the tour.i am very disappointed . don't deserve any star.

  • This was amazing - everything was easy and went well

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The Jordan guide was simply the best + perfect organization = great experience

  • Seeing Petra was amazing. Definitely worth the effort and time. It requires a good amount of walking, but the path is generally but not always paved. Not nearly enough time for me to explore. I could have spent a few days looking around. Petra can also be HOT, so be prepared for the weather and bring lots of water if you go in the hot season.

  • Starting time 1 1/2 hours late, which came off of the time to see Petra. Serious miscommunication between Viator and their local tour guide via Booking.com. Advised to get a Jordanian visa personally, even though the local guide already had purchased a visa for us. Not winning any kudos from us.

  • Petra was a great spot and our tour guide was nice. Borders were handled nice and smoothly as well. We had time to wonder alone as well in Petra. Lunch place was good as well. Only reason for my average rating is the fact that they picked us up 1,5h later than said!!

  • The tour was a bit disappointing in terms of time management. We stopped for too long in a shop in Aqaba, before heading to Petra. We started the tour after 12 we left the Hotel before 8.30am, and we werent told that the lunch would be served only after the whole tour. We spend a long time in the Canyon/Siq with the guide. The guided visit stopped just after the Façade Street and the Theatre, and we were left with just one hour and a half free, including the way back which is about 45 minutes1 hour. So, we were basically left with only half an hour free, which is not enough to visit other relevant parts of the site.
    We rushed back to the meeting point at the visitors centre by 15.30.Starving! Then we had one hour time for lunch. Sincerely, I would have preferred to eat a sandwich and have one hour more at the site. So, the guided visit of the site lasted from 12ish to 14ish. I think that the programme should be better detailed.
