    Petra
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission excluded
    Located 140 miles (225 kilometers) from Amman, Petra once dominated the trade routes of ancient Arabia. Your visit to this hauntingly beautiful place begins with a walk through the Siq, a narrow path that was once the main entrance to the city. An impressively long, deep and narrow gorge of stunning natural beauty, the Siq is hemmed in by cliffs soaring up to 263 feet (80 meters), and measures three-quarters of a mile (1.2 kilometers). You will depart from your Hotel to Petra via an air-conditioned vehicle and will have the opportunity to stop and take a break as the journey is close to 2.5 hours south. Once you are in Petra, at the Petra Visitor Center, a guide can be arranged ( Optional ) after your ticket purchase and your meeting point to start your tour into Petra. Your dedicated English speaking tour guide will lead the tour inside of Petra and arrange entrance and logistics. It is advised to stay close to your guide to capture the details of the fascinating history of the Nabateans who built the city out of rocks. You will have the opportunity to rest, eat, drink, and use the facilities while in Petra, just inform your guide. At the end of the tour, your guide  ( If Hired ) will escort you to the meeting point for your journey back to Amman. Expect about a 3-hour journey back to Amman.

The Amman-Petra tour is excellent; however Mohamed,the driver is not very honest.The second day our tour supposed go to Jerash .He succeeded convincing us go to Dead sea instead.The tour is shorter time and boring,so the driver can drop us at gift-shopping stops .

Not recommended
To start from the positive side - car was comfortable and had a wifi.
Now to sum up the rest...
Our driver seemed friendly at first, but he tried to get the money out of us at every possible occasion. This tour almost completely ruined our vacation mood and a great first impression of Jordan. Mohammed stoped only at the most expensive places, he dropped us off not at the entrance of Petra, but at some shady souvenir shop with many different guides - they asked us to sit, poured us some black tea and started explaining walking around Petra. When we realized these people are “guides” and that their asking almost a double normal price for 3 hour tour, we politely refused. Then they got offended and asked us to pay ridiculous price for the welcome tea they poured us.
After we came back from the tour on our own, Mohammed was waiting for us in the restaurant above the same shady guides location. He persuaded us to have lunch there, as during the drive there he really recommended the place. However, we were offered traditional food but no one gave us menu, even after we asked for it 3 different times (other tourists in the place all had menus). We received a bill for ridiculous price - 44 JD for 2 meals and 2 soft drinks. Only after I demanded to see the official prices and “do the math together”, they dropped the price to 29 JD.
This was our first trip in Jordan and we left feeling scammed, grossed out and naive. We paid a lot for this driver on the official website of TripAdvisor and we felt like this was some random scammer we picked up from the street.

Go to Petra but look for a different tour, as for this price you should be able to trust your driver.

We had an excellent day. Our driver, Mohammed, was helpful, knowledgeable and a very good driver. We would definitely recommend him. Petra is amazing and it is possible to get away from the crowds.

Great day out.
Akram was an amazing driver.
Told us a lot about Jordan on our drive from Amman to Petra. Took us off the main road when we were near Petra to show us some extra stuff.

Definitely would book again if I came back to Jordan.

Wow a place you must visit!!
Petra wow was great for us but a group of girls travelling alone is ok but not the best as many Arab guys trying to hit on us and get our numbers but Petra itself is perfect I don’t recommend you get a donkey or camel and if they beg you just a walk away but 1 day is enough and there again it is not as you have to be fast to see everything in 1 day

What an adventure!
Nov 2017 • Couples
Petra is an absolute must see! Its incredible and exactly like Indiana Jones :-)

A couple of watch outs... its about 3.5 hours from Amman, so 7 hour round trip. Get a comfy car and take snacks/ water. The drive itself is very beautiful... lots of rolling desert.

To get to the first attraction at Petra (the Indiana Jones building), you have to walk for at least 30 mins downhill on sand and rocks (which means 30 mins walking back up that hill!) and it does get steep in places. Again, worth the trip because you see so many incredible rock formations, some of which you climb in/ on.

If your an animal lover, be warned. Many people use horses to go up and down the hill and its not nice to see. Likewise with the camels and donkeys past the main building.

This place is your ultimate tourist trap with lots of children trying to sell you goods. Keep your money safe.

And take water - there is no shelter anywhere on the walk

Great option for visiting Jerash (tour locations not quite interesting enough to warrant 5 stars)
The main highway to Umm Qais was closed so I elected not to take the backroads. The highlight of the trip is Jeras

You can do this trip on your own.
I did this trip last October and even though it says half day, I only spent probably about 3 hours with my driver.
