Came here with Abraham Tours and spent all day here. Highly recommend having a tour guide for at least half a day. Wear comfortable shoes, as they is a huge amount of walking, and optional steep walking.

I was actually here during the flooding November 11. Fortunately for myself, I had already seen everything I wanted to see. Be sure to get here early to avoid the crowds, they open at 6 am. If you are physically able, walk the Siq. It's...More

Thats the best of the 7 wonders of the modern world.
It is unbelievable how the Nabbataeans with such primitive tools managed to sculpt these perfect façades on the rocks.
There is also a Byzantine church with mosaics, with the four seasons of the year...More
Petra has been on our visit list for some time. We were not disappointed. Overwhelming when you consider the engineering achievement, active period of the city and historical importance of the site. The walk is easy but a little long.

If the cost includes transport to and from Petra, and the entrance fee, it is not that bad for the convenience. It is about 2 hours driving time from Aqaba to Petra, and the cost of the entrance fee is 50jd or about 55£ per person. So unless you have a larger group than 2 or so, you'd be hard pressed to do it much cheaper with a taxi.
