Tour Itinerary
 
07:00 your driver will pick you from the Amman hotel lobby, holding a sign in your name. Start your day tour with a 2.5 hours drive along the Desert Highway to Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Petra was first established around the 6th century B.C. by the Nabataean Arabs, a nomadic tribe who settled in the area and laid the foundation of a commercial empire that extended into Syria.
Meet your local private guide. Begin your adventure by walking to the 1.2 km long, narrow canyon, the so called Siq, with its colourful sandstone. At the end of the Siq you will be rewarded with a view of the breathtaking Treasury. The monument consists of enormous facade which is about 30 meters wide and 43 meters high, engraved out of the red rose sandstone in the early 1st century. You have plenty of photo opportunities. Continue via the Street of Facades to the Royal Tombs and Pharaoh's Castle. After around 2 hours the guide says farewell to you at the restaurant area. You have free time to explore Petra on your own. The young at heart for instance have the chance to climb the 800 stairs to the 45 meters high Monastery El Deir. Return to the main gate. Your driver awaits you and takes you back to your hotel in Amman.
Tour Duration: approximately 10 hours

Wow sums up my experience. We had a wonderful time with the BOOKING JORDAN team. From the booking arrangements prior to trip to the experience on the day the team were fantastic. Driver picked us up from the airport at the crack of dawn and was attentive and courteous driving us to Petra and taking us to a wonderful lunch afterwards. The Guide was really knowledgeable as our guide through the sights and was interacting with us all the way. A really amazing experience overall. Thank you all

I traveled to Jordan for a business trip and had a chance to celebrate my 30th birthday to Petra. I booked online and BookingJordan quickly responded to my request. All went smoothly. The driver and guide they provided are very knowledgeable. When my Driver Najjar found out that it's my birthday he even sing me a song and gave a simple present. Such a sweet gesture from the staff of BookingJordan. Shukran!
