Absolutely amazing place! Our kids (8 + 9 years old) loved it too and were more than happy to walk around for 6+ hours. We climbed up to the High Place of Sacrifice and got a bit lost on the way back down, which meant that we had to skip the Monastery in the end. We saw pretty much everything... More

Absolutely breathtaking heritage hestorical site! A must see! Petra is a famous archaeological site in Jordan's southwestern desert. Dating to around 300 B.C., it was the capital of the Nabatean Kingdom. Accessed via a narrow canyon called Al Siq, it contains tombs and temples carved into pink sandstone cliffs, earning its nickname, the "Rose City." Perhaps its most famous structure... More

What an amazing place to visit. Totally incredible what ancient peoples carved without the use of modern machinery. Every step I took, I oohed and awed at the brilliance of the rose granite sculpted by hand. The guides were very friendly, and all spoke English. I am very happy to have visited this magnificent ancient city. A true lifetime experience!

There is a good hike from the entrance to the treasury. There are carriage and donkey rides available. Prices are very negotiable. You can ride a camel in front of the Treasury for a lifetime memorable photo or video. There is an equally impressive view of the Monastery also, but it is a fairly long hike-- about 12 miles round... More

Petra was something that was on my bucket list to see for a long time. Once I stood in front of the Treasury, I was absolutely in awe. It was stunning, it was beautiful, it was mysterious and was every bit I imagined and more. Seeing the Treasury and the many tombs made it such an awesome way to spend... More

What an amazing place. I wish we had been able to stay here longer. Due to limited time we could only walk thru the Siq to the treasury. It is not a difficult walk down to the treasury and it is well worth the effort. Your admission includes donkey ride, but the guides expect a tip. We chose to walk... More

One of the most amazing experiences of my life - a must if you can get there. We spent two days - and could have spent three easily - please don't just stop at The Treasury - there is so much more to see!!
