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.
US$98.00 per adult

The place is quite isolated though regarded as within Amman. We traveled there using uber, and was not difficult to get another uber to return to our hotel. It's in my visit-list, but finding it during the homework stage was quite difficult. In Google Map, searching for "cave" will not result in this place. That's why I'd recommend renaming the place in the map so that it's easier to find. No entrance fee! If you're not guided, please note that two of the graves are not emptied. Look properly through the glass wall and you'll see bones etc. Remember, the place was once ruined by earthquake; probably that explained why the bones were seen scattered.

Closed sometimes for the prayers, so expect to wait around 20 minutes. Listen to their explanation for understanding the story/.

Amman, Jordan889 contributions788 helpful votes
This place is mentioned in the Quran for Muslims. It is a bit of a long drive from Amman, about 30-40 min, which made it disappointing trip in the end. From the start the security guy was extremely impolite and shouting at my friend to cover up, and we knew that she had to, but she wasn't even showing any skin or was wearing casual attire that is baggy, but for some reason he decided it was okay to speak to her in demeaning and condescending way. When we got the site and entered the cave, we explored it at our own leisure, it is quite small anyway so that doesn't take much time. Then came the guy who was suppose to be the guide. Again he was extremely unprofessional and rushed everything and claiming his shift is over so there is no time for questions and if we have any enquires we should buy the CDs to learn more about the story of the place. Authorities should take a proper look at this place and manage it better, first by placing proper working hours. Giving these guides incentives, even if there is a small fee for entering the place of about a dollar or so. But as a Jordanian I was extremely disappointed and my foreign friend was not delighted as well by the behaviour of the staff.

We stopped by at Ahl Al Kahf after having visited the Roman Amphitheatre, it was a short (and relatively cheap) drive. We were taken to the cave by the imam who told us the story of The Seven Sleepers, as mentioned in the Quran. This was free of charge. There is also an adjacent mosque which we had the pleasure of praying in. The facilities for this were great. There was also facilities for drinking cold water, which was much needed in the nice hot temperatures we experienced. Definitely a must visit!
