Petra itself is a beautiful place to be. It is surreal and magical. However the animal abuse taking place there makes it impossible to enjoy what is one of the seven wonders of the world. The ticket includes a horse carriage ride - however this...More

This place is over priced but worth doing once. I was there first thing in the morning and it took most of the day to get to the top. Many pics. I did it by myself instead of a tour because I wanted to do...More

Highly recommend a couple things: 1. go EARLY. I mean early. Get there at 6am when gates open, stroll down the pathway during the beautiful sunrise, and soak in the glory of Petra while it is quiet and serene. Not many people are there yet,...More

For non-Jordanians entry to Petra is getting very expensive. This was my third visit and it is a ‘must see’ destination when visiting Jordan. Be prepared to walk a lot and wear comfortable shoes. The facilities at the visitor centre are good. Petra is beautiful,...More

We started early but not too early. Around 6am there is a queue of people dying to get in first, so just arrive around 630 and you can walk straight in. The walk from the entrance to the siq is about 800m and from the...More

I had the privilege of visiting Petra. I’d say if you could only visit 3 places on earth in a lifetime, Petra has to be one of them. Skip the mule, horse or camel rides. Walk it all! Please don’t rush either. Make sure you...More

We opted to walk the Main trail and the Al-Khubtha trail at Petra. We had a two day pass and we did the night show - so we collectively spent about 12 hours within the ancient city. Off the 12, 10 hours was spent during...More

Incredible landscape and structures. The locals are helpful and sociable. May be the only thing that spoil the gem is the poor donkeys climbing to the Monastery. I strongly recommend please do it by yourself. In the end this trip is all about hiking and...More

This was a private tour we took. No cruise boat. Well worth the visit.
