Jordan one of the most beautiful and wonderful places that I have visited in my life.
Did not take more than 15 minutes to cross the border, I asked for the bus station and how much the taxi, they all attacked and says no buses now, and you have to take taxi direct to Petra, it was 11:00am and I am sure there are many buses at this time.
I said no I want to go to the bus station and wait for the bus, they said ok you can walk out there, I said ok, I will walk to there (I have no choice) After 5 minutes of walking, one of them followed me and asked me to ride to take me to the bus station in Aqaba, I said ok how much, he said 11JOD, and because of the influence of the hot sun I have to agree. And before we go to the bus station he offered me to take me to Petra for 25JOD instead of waiting the bus, and he said the bus will take from you 10JOD, so I said ok I will pay 25JD instead of 11 for him and 10 for the bus which is almost same, then he said ok wait 5 minutes, but it was 50 minutes not 5!! during this time he made numerous calls, with who and why I don't know!! I asked him can we go, he said please give me more 5 minutes, I said ok, and I asked him to open the A/C he said it is not working!!!
After 15 minutes another driver came and he said to me this is my friend and he will take you to Petra and give him 25JD, I said ok, I go with him and in the middle of the way, this new driver he asked me how much he told you to give me, I said 25JD, he said (angrily) WHAT?? I will not take you for 25JD, you have to pay more, I said ok I will pay more when we arrive, he said no now and he stopped the car, I asked him how much and he said 45JD, or I will not take you, I said ok and I paid 45JD.
Then after we left the desert highway and at the rest house there, he met a friend who will go to Petra and he asked him to take me with him, I still have no choice so I said ok I will go with him, but i will not pay anything, he said no you will not pay. This the last driver was really very good driver and told me all the story about this sharper, who sell tourists!!
Sorry for the prolongation but you should warn them.. it was very bad experience with them
