Full description
The day begins with pickup from your accommodation in Amman and heads off on the 225 kilometer journey to the ancient city of Petra. This UNESCO listed location, which dates back over 2000 years, once dominated the trade routes of ancient Arabia. Upon arrival, take a stroll through Al-Siq, a narrow and deep pathway that acts as the main entrance into Petra. Inside, admire the Al-Khazneh, also known as the treasury where elegant remains of antiquity can be found carved deep into the rocks. Other highlights of Petra include the monastery, Altar of Sacrifice, Street of Facades, Royal Tombs, the Roman Theater, and more. After soaking up all the sights that Petra has to offer, continue the tour towards Wadi Rum, also known as the Valley of the Moon. As you head to Wadi Rum, which was the filming location of blockbuster movies such as Lawrence of Arabia and The Martian, allow yourself to be transported into this other-worldly landscape. Embark on an adventurous 4x4 safari ride through the desert and visit several sites including Nabatean Temple while marvelling at the extraordinary mountains that rise from the sand. Later, stop at a picturesque Bedouin for a refreshing cup of Arabic tea or coffee and the opportunity to mingle with the locals. Finally, gaze upon a breathtaking sunset across the silky desert plains before beginning the return journey back to Amman.

My wife and I went on a full day trip with Hassan to Petra and Wadi Ram and it was fantastic. Pick up was right on time at 7am and Hassan was amazing throughout our journey. He made sure my wife and I were well and even made a stop at a Pharmacy for my wife who was not very well. He also gave us some great recommendations on how to explore the various sights in Petra. Mohammed who then took over in Wadi Ram was also fantastic! Hassan drove us all the way to the Dead Sea for the evening and made sure we were well taken care of every step. We highly recommend this tour/driver for anyone coming to Jordan!

The super friendly driver, from the day before he contacted me by whatsapp to agree, at 6 o'clock we met and super punctual, from Amman we went to Petra, with one stop in a typical Jordanian cafeteria, and he invited me a good coffee! Great gesture, in Petra he gave me about 4 or 5 hours off, I traveled a part on horseback and the rest on foot, then we went for typical food, in a very good restaurant. He offered me the option of going to Wadi Rum, he showed me photos and everything that was included and I was encouraged. The best decision in the world! The incredible sunrise as well as the sunset, the spectacular buffet dinner with a show of how they take the food. A sisha and perfect starry night! The next day we had breakfast and he took me back to Amman! His name is Mohammed Alnana! Great experience.

I had a great experience booking this tour with R&H Bib Transportation and Mr. Mohammed Al Na’Na. Mohammed picked me up on time at 6:00 AM like it said on the page, from there we went straight to Petra, his driving skills are excellent, drives very careful and makes sure that you’re comfortable, the car is nice and comfortable too, with air conditioner, he dropped me outside of Petra and waited for me for around 3 hours until I finished exploring Petra, after that he took me to Wadi Rum, where a Jeep was waiting for me to explore Wadi Rum, I was there for around 2 hours, he also gave me some refreshments, if you have little time like a day this tour is excellent to explore Petra and Wadi Rum in short time, they also have other tours where you can stay days with them and explore more of Jordan, I recommend this tour to everyone, thank you again.
