Its better inn person than in the movies. Its real it has culture. I have traveled to Jordan through Raami Tours. They did a great Job creating a tour that would fit for me.

Petra was beautiful and historic. The walk in is long and hot, but well worth it once you see the awesome view of the Treasury. Spend the whole day there - there is so much to see! We packed a lunch and had a backpack, but there was a shop across from the treasury where you could get a drink... More

The best time to start your journey through the siq into the Treasury area is about 9:00 am, then you get good light and it is still cool enough in the day. The treasury just opens up out of nowhere after about a 20 minute walk. At night time can also be a great time to go because the siq... More

If you have seen Indiana Jones the temple of doom, you would have seen this structure. As you walk through a long siq tunnel passage you will end up with this Amazing view welcoming you into the lost city of Petra. Simply awesome

The walk in is long and hot, but to be fair you can hire a horse and cart to take you through the Siq. We enjoyed the walk as there was loads to see on the route to and through the Siq. The first view of the Treasury from the end of the Siq is just 'wow' . A must... More

One of the best and memorable trip of my life. Please allow at least a full day visit to in this ancient and vast territory (Petra). The walk through the Siq, the passage leading up to the Treasury is not to be missed as it only add more drama to your visit. I was in awe of the size of... More

Outstanding!! You cannot visit Petra and not go to Al Khazna where camels and horse carriages will be waiting for you.. There is a small cafe on the left side with a souvenir shop.

This is the best preserved and most ornate of Petra's relics. You cannot go inside it, but you can stand and marvel all you want.
