Worth the money and the seemingly endless bus ride and delays at the border crossing which I've seen are standard. Excellent guide and camp and Petra was amazing I wish we had more time at the site as it takes more than 5 hours to walk around it. I'd probably recommend the 3 day tour if you want to explore it all

The guide speaks good English, made sure we had everything we needed, and was more than helpful. He Made the experience more enjoyable, very personable and friendly. 10/10 recommend
