  • Great trip. Get to Petra well before those crowded cruise ship buses. First rate drivers and local guides. Take your best walking or hiking shoes, you will need them. My wife and I each put in 20,000 steps during this trip. I also suggest you take at least 150 along with you. There are tips to pay, experiences to be had, and you might want to hire that donkey or mule to help along the way. Many people will ask you if you want something, always just respond no thank you. Never say that youll consider it, youll think about it, or maybe. To them, you just said yes. If it is windy, take something to breath thru because of the dust. Hat and sunglasses are a must. Be ready to be amazed! We left shipmat 7AM and returned by 5PM

  • Absolully Amazing! We decided to go on this tour instead of the cruise ship provide tour so we could see more of Petra, and we totally did. Lots of Walking and stairs but incredible experience. Supa, our driver, and Randy, our guide, were outstandingl and made the whole day special. Do this tour!

  • This tour was amazing! We saw far more of Petra than those who spent the same amount of time there on the cruise ship excursion.
    Our guide Rudy was great,
