Hi Jerry,

The ticket box opens around 6 AM so you can go in as early as that. Enjoy your visit !

A private guide for the 3 hour Petra City Tour costs you 50 JOD but as said there probably won't be too many guides around at 6 in the morning ...

We started around 7am and even thought the ticket office wa already open, there wasn't to many people around and if you want to find a guide you might need to wait a bit.

On the other hand, don't wait too long, since after 9am a lot of people ar ecoming in and it gets too crowded and it takes away from the magic of Petra
