Travelling to Petra

I will be in Jordan at the beginning of September and have a few days at the end of my trip to spare. Was planning on heading back to re-visit Petra from Aqaba.

What I would like to know, is the best way to get to Petra from Aqaba either by taxi or by bus.

Also does anyone have any information on any good guides in Petra or can they just be hired from the Visitors Centre upon arrival?

1. Re: Travelling to Petra

We travelled the opposite direction 6 months ago. And made a stop at Wadi Rum. Used a bus from Petra and a taxi to Aqaba. Sorry I do not remember the cost of the taxi but it wasn't expensive. Re; guide.... plenty available at Petra... if you've been there before you may not really need one. We found that for us... just wandering around was ok. Get there early in the morning for the sun as you walk in a see the treasurer in the best light... don't go to the "monaster" until after noon... again for the best light... any guidebook will probably give you more information that most guides.... I think.

I can also recommend Wadi Rum for an over night stay. We used some guides called "Mountain Guides".. they were truly wonderful...
