What to expect
Greet your English-speaking chauffeur, who will be holding up a sign with your name, at the port after your cruise ship docks. Leave for Petra in an air-conditioned vehicle at 8 am. Your tour guide will meet you in Petra for a 2-hour tour ( after the guided tour , you can do more on your own while you head back from Petra to the main gate -time permitting ! ). Your tour guide will share the history of the city with you, make sure you bring your camera. The majestic city of Petra, carved into the rose red rock 2000 years ago is a must visit attraction. Petra can be reached by the Siq (narrow gorge). The treasury was made famous in the movie Indiana Jones & the last crusade. In addition to the treasury, you will see the street of facades, the early necropolis, the Roman theater, the royal tombs and other monuments. Lunch at a local restaurant is also included.  You will then be returned to the port in advance of your cruise ship's departure.

A Perfect Day in Petra
Feb 2020 • Couples
Great tour with 5 star Guide. His name was Rudy. Also a delightful young man driver Yanal. Yanal bought us delicious hot bread to try from Bedoqouin tribe in Jordan. After our tour we had a wonderful buffet lunch. Our driver gave us unexpected thoughtful gift, a souvenir with our names on it, then stopped and got us an absolutely delicious sweet desert. I recommend this company and ask for this driver and guide.

Fantastic organisation and implementation
Nov 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Petra. Every single arrangement went to plan, from being collected immediately opposite our ship”s dock to returning us back to the same point within the given timeframe. Our car was comfortable and clean. Our driver Mazen was so kind. Unfortunately his lack of English and our lack of Arabic made communication very difficult but he drove extremely well...safely and securely...and ensured at every turn that we were comfortable and well looked after. He stopped both going to and from Petra to buy us drinks and snacks and could not have done more. He introduced us to our private guide at Petra, Ibrahim (?), who was equally diligent and determined to make our trip the best it could be. He had excellent English and was engaging and very knowledgable. He took us to the very bottom of the gorge, stopping to explain the various parts of Petra and their history. He had been born there and was very knowledgable about every aspect of it. He also told us about modern day Jordan and life as a citizen of the new town of Petra. It was fascinating. The pace of the trip was excellent....but we didn’t perhaps leave ourselves quite enough time to walk back up the hill ( and it is quite a climb)! This was our fault as we made our own way back but timed this badly. Mazen was at the ticket office to meet us and to take us back to our car. We could not have asked for more. We chose NOT to have lunch as we have been eating to excess on our cruise ship so cannot comment on the quality here. Mazen offered us lunch on multiple occasions. This trip could not have been improved. We have now taken several trips with Viator this year and have been most impressed on each occasion. We would highly recommend them when organising a private tour.

One day Petra from cruise ship
May 2019 • Couples
We were 3 couples arriving at Aqaba port— the communication from booking to arrival was very good. Our guide, Mohammed was waiting for us when we stepped off the ship. The rest of the day went as described. Mohammed was flexible with the timing and very informative during the guided walk. If we return, I would ask for him again.
The lunch stop was average and seemed to be popular with the tour groups. Good food selection, but very crowded with busloads of Asian tourists.
I found the pricing to be very expensive for a shore excursion, but is likely the going rate for a private tour in Aqaba, and less than the ship excursion.
I would recommend this agency for a shore excursion to Petra.

Petra guide was very insightful
Apr 2018 • Family
Our driver from Red Rock Tours picked us up from the port in Aqaba.
We drove to Petra
On our way we stopped at a “view shop” for an amazing panoramic view of Jordan

The Positive
Our guide in Petra was very insightful

The Negative
Although our driver was very friendly and the vehicle in a good condition, I did not feel safe as the driver was driving over the speed limit and talking on his phone (no hands free) and Whatsapp whilst driving.
