I am so sorry about what you mention. Please note all our drivers speak good proper English and they are not guides. They reply according to clients interest,as some clients are not talkative and would rather have a more silent drive. As for smoking it is not allowed to smoke inside the car even if the driver smokes. The Petra classic visit is done with a licensed guide and we are glad you enjoyed it.

As a world traveler I've seen quite a few amazing places in my life but I must say Petra is definitely one of the most special ones. It compares to when I first visited Angkor Wat and what I imagine Machu Picchu will be like. It's a world like no other- and if you're reading
