Independent VS Guided Petra Travel? : Cost Breakdown

I did some research and came up with a comparison of Independent Travel from Eilat VS. Guided Tour from Eilat.

For fellows contemplating to travel independently from Eilat to Petra i believe below is an approximate cost breakdown. Compare this with Desert Eco Tour's USD 369 (+$35 single supplement). In the comparison, taxes/tips are not included. The difference is approx $130. Of course , less the hustle for guided tour. For independent traveler, the fun is there when hopping one place to another and the feeling of a "traveling" .

After doing this, i myself is confused which way to go...hahahah. DEs, does this comparison makes sense? Please correct the figure(s) below if its way too far from reality.

Thanks.

Do the calculation again with the correct conversion rate: 1JD is approx 1.4 US$!
