This is truly one of the most amazing places we have ever visited. Trying to describe our 2 days in Petra is very difficult as words alone cannot be found to compliment this truly amazing and stupendous place. You just have to put this on...More
Travelers are recommended to leave early to escape the heat of the sun. Water sould be preferably carried from outside as it is costly inside and you will needs lots of fluid. The entire trail is abouy 16 Km and is best experienced by walking....More
What can you say about a place like this that hasn’t already been said. It is utterly wonderful, dramatic majestic and fascinating and deserves a place in any list of wonders of the world. It can be very hot and you do need to walk...More
Petra itself is a beautiful place to be. It is surreal and magical. However the animal abuse taking place there makes it impossible to enjoy what is one of the seven wonders of the world.
The ticket includes a horse carriage ride - however this...More
This place is over priced but worth doing once. I was there first thing in the morning and it took most of the day to get to the top. Many pics. I did it by myself instead of a tour because I wanted to do...More
Highly recommend a couple things:
1. go EARLY. I mean early. Get there at 6am when gates open, stroll down the pathway during the beautiful sunrise, and soak in the glory of Petra while it is quiet and serene. Not many people are there yet,...More
For non-Jordanians entry to Petra is getting very expensive. This was my third visit and it is a ‘must see’ destination when visiting Jordan. Be prepared to walk a lot and wear comfortable shoes. The facilities at the visitor centre are good. Petra is beautiful,...More
We started early but not too early. Around 6am there is a queue of people dying to get in first, so just arrive around 630 and you can walk straight in.
The walk from the entrance to the siq is about 800m and from the...More
I had the privilege of visiting Petra. I’d say if you could only visit 3 places on earth in a lifetime, Petra has to be one of them. Skip the mule, horse or camel rides. Walk it all! Please don’t rush either. Make sure you...More

We got a licensed guide at the entrance as there is an office to the right. There were two of us and it cost 50JD. It was worth it, I can’t remember how long it was for but if you wanted a guide for longer you paid extra... More

Well, riding a camel is nice, but almost all the sites in Petra you'll have to walk. I especially recommend The Treasury (Al Khazna), The Royal Tombs, The Theatre, The Great Temple, The Colonnaded Street and Ad Deir... More
Well, riding a camel is nice, but almost all the sites in Petra you'll have to walk. I especially recommend The Treasury (Al Khazna), The Royal Tombs, The Theatre, The Great Temple, The Colonnaded Street and Ad Deir (The Monastery On the mountain). With the Jeep you will be able to see other places around, like little Petra. Enjoy it!
