wonderful seeing this iconic structure. Too bad the statues were defaced during a time when the rulers did not appreciate art

We walked the Siq or canyon to view this spectacular sight at the end of it was truly awesome. The colour of The Treasury changes depending on what time of day you get there and where the sun is!

The treasury was just excellent, absolutely beautiful. You come out from the canyon and it opens up to the beautiful carved Treasury. You can easily tell when you are coming close due to the other tourists hugging the canyon walls to get a picture. In front of the Treasury itself there are several reenactors as Petra guards and other touts... More

This was a great trip. Make sure you get there early (opens at 6am) so you can see it without loads of people around. Also, make the long walk up to the monastery - it's well worth it (even though at the time you will be knackered by the steps!). The ticket price is very expensive, that was surprising.

Flew from Tel Aviv to Eilat, caught a taxi the Aqaba Border and met up with our taxi whom I had discussed prices etc weeks before our... More

GREAT experience. Depend on a guide - you really need it, and a drive, particularly first time. We came from Israel - so we used Tour Plan Israel, they were great - and set up a driver and guide in Jordan Time- full day minimum - and be prepared for long lines at the border! Have all your documents ready.... More

After walking through the narrow pass you come to the treasury and prepare to be amazed. Get there early would be the key requirement as by mid morning it gets busy. You cannot enter the treasury so it is really a photostop and a bucket shop tick list. There is so much more!
