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 had wanted to come to Petra for...More

And why wouldn’t it be ! An iconic site well preserved and reasonably priced “tat” A must for the discerning traveller but go early as soon as it opens to avoid the cruise ships pouring in later.

What an amazing site, a walk through the cliffs in a passage, then it opens out to see the amazing site of the Chancellery Building in all its glory!!

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.

This was one incredible day. With lovely fillings. Petra is also called the Rose City due to the colors of the stone out of which it is carved. When you saw Petra i was speechless.

I first visited Petra in 2008. Returned in late Oct 2018 with my husband who was having his first visit. Arriving at 12.30, it was quite difficult to find a parking space. Upon entering, I was surprised how much more commercialised it has become. I...More

We didn’t hire a guide though got approached by few of them. Its easy to get a guide as they would be around the visitor center. Not sure about the prices.

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... More
