“a great entrance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This was the perfect way to work your way to the Treasury. It is a build up to the perfect peek of the Treasury. It is also nice and clear.

Beautiful and quiet, it definitely sets the scene for the spectacular ruins to come. Like a portal into a different world.

“Worth a day trip just for this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

The Siq (gorge) leading to the old city is just spectacular. The towering cliffs that soar above are quite spectacular and breathtaking. I have never experienced anything like it!

It is worth the 3 hour drive from Amman just for this.

And then you get Petra at the end of it......................!!!!!!!

“splendour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

majestic, splendid, charming, inviting, monumental, are some of the words that run through your head. Can be quite the walk if you climb and see around. Just remember to give yourself enough time to enjoy the experience.
