From Amman: Private Petra Day Trip with Guide

You will leave the hotel early in the morning to drive south to the Nabatean Red Rose City of Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, for a classic visit. As you travel, gaze at the desert landscapes and hear tales of Jordan’s history. Hewn into a sandstone valley carved by the Nabataean people more than 2,000 years ago, this ancient rose-red rock city is located 245 kilometers from Amman at the crossroads of age-old trading routes, to dominate ancient Arabia. Reach Petra's main site to learn more about its magnificent history. On arrival, leave your vehicle, and enjoy a 2-hour tour of this UNESCO Heritage-listed wonder with a local guide. First, walk through the famous “Siq”, a narrow path of 1.2-kilometer rock fissure that was once the main entrance to the city, and marvel at your first glimpse of the hauntingly beautiful Treasury “Al - Khazneh” as the canyon suddenly opens up. Admire this rose-pink masterpiece, originally built to house priceless treasures and capture it on camera. Then, proceed through the widening canyon to witness other monuments such as the 3,000-seater Theater, the Royal Tombs, and the Byzantine Church. As you explore, listen as your guide describes how the Nabateans sculpted the buildings, and learn how they mastered the harsh desert conditions to make their lives here. After around two hours of exploring, enjoy some free time. If time permits you can climb up the Monastery on your own or the High Place of Sacrifice, a clifftop altar that was once used for animal sacrifices and other ceremonies. Or use your free time to visit the Petra Museum. After leaving the site pass by Little Petra, a small rocky valley with carvings, that archaeologists believe acted as the Nabatean’s caravan before heading to the main city and as an accommodation stop for the traders who traveled through the city. Then, journey back to Amman, where your day trip ends with a hotel drop-off.

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!

I was lucky to spend the day touring the sites of northern Jordan with Mohammed, the best driver in all of Jordan. He was punctual, friendly, interesting, a great conversationalist, and went above and beyond to help me fix a small problem with arranging a pre-flight COVID test back at my hotel later that day. Don’t hesitate to book your transport to Jerash, Ajloun, and Umm Qais with this company - if all their drivers are as great as Mohammed, you’ll be in excellent hands.

This was a great trip. Everything went perfect from my pick up and drop off at hotel. The Sun trail was amazing I did it in my own with no local guide inside the canyon needed. The canyon was easy to navigate and do much fun. It’s a great combination of walking and swimming and climbing ladders . I completed the canyon in a little over 2 hours it was a great experience

Safe drive. Mohammed is friendly and drove us from Amman to Petra from thr best route to show as many landmarks as possible on the way!

Ramouni was a fantastic, knowledgeable and friendly guide. Couldn't ask for more! would definitely recommend!
