Amman Petra Full-Day Trip

16 reviews
If you have time for one side trip from Amman, make it Petra. Carved 2,300 years ago by the Nabataeans, this southern Jordan UNESCO-listed rock city is one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. This private tour whisks you there and back in a day by private air-conditioned vehicle and with an itinerary customizable to your wishes. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included, with optional local guiding at Petra at own expense.

Amman can seem quite atypical most of the times with its slick skyscrapers and cool attitude. Not so much in the downtown: Come to soak in the vibe, aromas, and tastes of a true Arabic metropolis.

This city gives me an experience of the past. The shoppers, stores front, and the streets. I found the best views are the houses rise above the hills. Love to have a chance to browse into these mazes.

I cannot easily summarize the site, sounds and tastes of this area in Amman in this review. I would recommend that you add Amman to your bucket list if you enjoy travelling. This is a VERY historic area (as is most of Amman and the country for that matter). To truly appreciate the history and current culture this would be a very good place to start. The Roman Coliseum, King Hussein (or Husseini) Mosque, Nymphaeum and The Original Arab Bank building are the popular historic sites. There are multiple places to shop for gold, clothing, fabrics, custom jewelry and fabrics. You also have plenty of little shops for local food items to try. I recommend you try the original Habibah shop AND Abu Ali’s which is close by. If you have a good sweet tooth, you'll understand why. You won't soon forget the experience of the visit and you will most likely return for seconds!
