The driver was nice and friendly. The tour started with picking me up at my hotel in Amman - 3 hr drive to Petra - dropped at the entrance of Petra - max 5 hr exploring in Petra - picked up at the entrance of Petra and back to the hotel in Amman. It was a great experience :)

Very good place to visit, valuable historical scenes. 3 hours drive from Amman to Petra slightly long but worth the time for such exciting tour. The company R&H VIP Transportation Services was very helpful during booking, their driver Abed was very helpful and added a lot of value to the tour. Value for money and very wothwhile tour.

A perfect way to see Petra . Get a Jordan Pass before arrival to the country to pay the entrance fee. The walk is long and arduous to see the Treasury and Monastary and anyone with limitation should ride the horse cart , golf cart( not free either ) or camel . Horse carts go too fast as on “ production time” , camels better pace if physically suited to ride and cost more . Golf cart nice but sparse and most expensive . Lots of constant attempts to fleece you but the site is totally amazing . Guide is not essential if you read up before trip. Our English speaking driver was very nice but his English was about like my Spanish “ Un poco”. Ok since his job was to drive.
