Full description

Explore the city of Petra on this guided tour and discover why it is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Go back in time as you learn about the city's history and see its tombs, temples, crypts, and Roman theater.

Petra was left to history by the Nabataens over 2,000 years ago. The Nabataens were very industrious, creating one of the most unique water systems of their time, and with over 20,000 inhabitants, became very prosperous. They built water cisterns and collected the water from the flash floods, then went on to sell the water to caravans and merchants. The Nabataens created remarkable facades in the sandstone in the typical Roman architectural manner, the most famous of which is the treasury. Included in your package is an optional horseback ride. Ride for the first 200 meters of the route (tipping the carrier is required, ranging from 2-15 dollars at your discretion) and then continue the tour to see the Roman theater, the facades, the tombs, the cisterns, the crypts, and the temples. After the tour, enjoy lunch in a local restaurant. Travel back to the Jordan border, and begin our return trip towards the border. This route includes a few stops along the way at specific observation points for you to enjoy the beautiful landscapes that Wadi Ram has to offer.

Un tour interesante, bien organizado. No le doy las 5 estrellas porque: 1. Nos pararon en una tienda en donde el guía puedo habernos advertido que los vendedores hacen de todo para robar a loa turistas, a una persona le cobraron mil dólares en un cargo de 100 dólares. 2. Dar más tiempo libre, sentimos que en lugar de deternos en él área del tesoro donde promueven que los turistas paguen porque les tomen una foto panorámica del lugar, permitan que las personas que no están interesadas en pagar por eso, puedan disfrutar y conocer más el lugar, aprovechando así, mejor el tiempo :) Por lo demás, el guía, la comida del almuerzo y el trato del personal muy agradable!!

The pick-up service worked great - the driver was in the lobby 20 minutes beforehand and waited. The drive to the border was entertaining (15min) as the driver told many stories. The border crossing went quickly - 20 minutes until we sat in the bus. Unfortunately it took almost 45 minutes there until people were put on the correct buses (sorted by language). The drive to Petra took 2 hours. The first stop after an hour (Petra View Shop) was great from the view, but many were ripped off by the seller. By exchanging with many currencies, you quickly forfeit the previously negotiated discount (my tip: pay in dinars, then that doesn't happen). In Petra the tour was very well run and entertaining. But after the guided tour you only have 45 minutes to yourself, including the two kilometers walk back! The restaurant was only partially prepared for us, but the food was quite good. Lots of variety, but not everything is always available and unfortunately only 40 minutes.
