Full description
On this 10-hour excursion you’ll travel from Amman to Petra by air-conditioned sedan, stopping for a break during the 2.5-hour drive. When you arrive at the Petra Visitor Center, a private guide can be arranged for you and your group of up to 3 persons (optional) after tickets have been purchased. From this point you’ll begin your tour of this fascinating site. An English-speaking guide (if purchased) can lead you on a tour inside Petra and ensure that you visit the major attractions and learn about the city’s founding. At the end of the narrow canyon known as Al Siq, you’ll marvel at the Grecian-style façade of Al Khazneh. It is recommended that you stay close to your guide so you don’t miss out on any of the commentary. You’ll hear details of the fascinating history of the Nabateans who built the city out of rocks. You’ll have a chance to rest, eat, drink, and use the facilities while in Petra. At the end of the tour, your guide will escort you to the meeting point for the 3-hour trip back to Amman.

A perfect way to see Petra . Get a Jordan Pass before arrival to the country to pay the entrance fee. The walk is long and arduous to see the Treasury and Monastary and anyone with limitation should ride the horse cart , golf cart( not free either ) or camel . Horse carts go too fast as on “ production time” , camels better pace if physically suited to ride and cost more . Golf cart nice but sparse and most expensive . Lots of constant attempts to fleece you but the site is totally amazing . Guide is not essential if you read up before trip. Our English speaking driver was very nice but his English was about like my Spanish “ Un poco”. Ok since his job was to drive.

Amazing experience and outstanding service.

Thanks for the outstanding service provided by your company and the excellent driver selected Mr. Hassan Khateb. He is a very knowledgeable and respectful person and he make my trip to Petra a memorable one. I highly recommend him and your company to any of my colleagues or friends that come to Jordan for any tour.

The activity is just transportation, so it is perfect if you have the Jordan pass so you will have free entry to the main attraction. I don’t know if it was because it was only me but the time is just 3 hours there, I think that can be better for 4 or 5 hours so you can go to more attractions and take pictures calmed.
